Are Online Casinos Better Than Land-Based Ones?

The casino industry is constantly growing which is why both land-based casinos and casino sites are so popular. Although more people prefer to go online, land-based casinos get their fair share of visitors. However, one question still arises: are online casinos better than land-based casinos?

The Atmosphere

Regular casinos have a regular atmosphere whereas some luxury casinos might dictate a formal atmosphere. They might have a dress code that players will have to adhere to. Some are fine with it while others aren’t. That’s why with casino sites you’re the master of your setting. You can wear whatever you want. Also, you can eat and drink during your gaming sessions and no one will bat an eye.

The Choice of Games – Slots, Table Games, Jackpot and Progressive Jackpot and More

When it comes to the choice of games, it’s evident that the casino sites have the upper hand. They can offer a lot more games because they’re not confined to their space. Land-based casinos can offer a limited number of slot machines and tables for table games. If they want to add more games they’d need more room.

Casino sites, on the other hand, are online which means they don’t need space. That’s why they have a bigger and better selection of games. Online casinos offer many variants of popular table games like blackjack, poker, roulette, and more.

Also, the sites offer plenty of slot games in their game portfolio. Some of them are fruity slots, some have multipliers and bonus games while others only have basic features. Moreover, some of them have jackpots and some jackpots are progressive and others are not. All in all, casino sites have an advantage when it comes to games.

The Level of Security – Regulation and Gaming Environment Safety

The laws play an important role in the safety and security of all kinds of casinos. India’s laws are a bit confusing. The legislation regarding gaming is a bit outdated. However, 3 states in India have casinos where people can enjoy their favorite games. These are Goa, Daman, and Sikkim. Indian casinos cannot have an online presence but off-shore companies can have such sites and focus on the Indian players.

When it comes to other countries land-based casinos have it easy. All they need is a license that shows they’re regulated by an authority. Naturally, they pay taxes for their revenues. They offer a safe gaming environment for anyone that walks through their doors.

Online casinos have a much tougher job when it comes to providing a safe gaming environment. The Internet is a risky place and players need to be protected. Their financial data is at risk which is why casino sites provide SSL encryption and other manners of protection. Some sites even offer payment methods, such as cryptocurrencies, that increase security. All in all, casino sites are safe in general. But are they fair?

The Level of Fairness

The table games at land-based casinos are manned by human dealers. They are prone to mistakes and sometimes these mistakes can be intentional. This puts their level of fairness in question. On the other hand, all the games at online casinos are regulated by Random Number Generators. These RNGs make sure that every set of symbols in a slot game and every card dealt and displayed is entirely random, which means that the games are fair. Unlike people, RNGs aren’t prone to error.

The Availability

The level of availability of online casinos is the reason why so many people go for them in the first place. This as well as the choice of games, security, and the number of bonuses are important factors to consider when choosing an online casino to play on. In short, casino sites are mobile-friendly which means you can enjoy them anywhere and at any time.

Their land-based counterparts also work 24/7 but can cater to a limited number of customers. For example, you might want to play video poker and when you visit your favorite casino all the machines are busy. You can simply enjoy your gaming however you’d like.


Both land-based casinos and casino sites have certain benefits. Both types of casinos offer an entirely different experience which is why casino sites and brick-and-mortar casinos are popular to this day.
