Playing At Home Forgoes Many Costs of Playing in Brick and Mortar CasinoPublished on July 31st, 2016 7:02 pm EST
With the US economy in the midst of a very slow recovery, Las Vegas has been feeling more emboldened to make a trip to their city even more expensive.
When economic times are poor, Las Vegas will usually move quickly to adjust, slashing the price of hotel rooms, offering more comps to its customers and lowering the price of food. Tourists are the lifeblood of Las Vegas, and the last thing that the casino industry wants to do is keep people away when the economy may be a bit rocky.
When times are good or stable, however, Las Vegas will quickly adjust the other way, raising the prices of live events, hotel rooms, food and eliminating many favourable player comps. This is just the way that things work in Las Vegas, and things are certainly more expensive right now.
With that being said, now is a fantastic time to take your casino play online.
To start, you will forego all of the costs of travelling to Las Vegas - the airline ticket, the hotel, the food - it all adds up!
Secondly, online casinos will give you generous deposit bonuses to get started with them. For instance, some casinos give their new customers thousands of dollars in deposit bonuses.
Thirdly, many online casinos now feature "live" play, which involves an actual dealer sitting and dealing your cards while a camera records the play and a computer tracks which cards have been dealt. This mimics the look and feel of a brick-and-mortar casino very closely while allowing you to play in the comfort of your own home.
Lastly, almost all online casinos are available through smart phones and tablets, which means that you will be able to play while you are travelling to work or on vacation. You will never be too far from the game.
Las Vegas is certainly a great deal of fun - there is no doubt about that. However, if you are looking to replicate the feel of Las Vegas while saving a great deal of money, online casinos are certainly the way to go.
