Looking for a reason to stay home to get your gambling fix? How about five? There are tons of
reasons why online casinos are better than gambling in person, but we won’t even touch on the
bonuses, the discretion, or any of those other compelling reasons to stay home. Instead, this is
just about what people can and can’t do at a real-life casino, and how much more freeing it is to
play at home.
1. Drinking the Bottle Clear
Even at the friendliest casinos, the staff has this odd habit of cutting people off when they’ve had
too much to drink. The drinks may be free, but once your face turns red and you start staggering
from table to table, the drinks disappear. Be loud enough and you may even find yourself sent
home early. Where is the fun in that? At home, you decide when you are done and when you are
2. Pulling an All-Nighter
No matter how well-behaved you are, no matter how much you tip, eventually the dealer will ask
you to go home for the night. This is because casinos have a habit of “closing,” or turning off all
the machines and locking the doors for several hours so the employees can sleep. Online casinos
don’t do this. You can gamble on your lunch break. You can gamble in the middle of the night.
You can gamble right now.
3. Hogging the Dealer
At the casino, you are either waiting for another player to set up their chips or trying to pick your
placements while everyone else stares. Online gambling happens at your pace. You click on the
“deal” button when you’re ready, not when the rest of the players start tapping their fingers.
4. Filming it
Have you ever whipped out a camera and started recording everyone around the table? People
tend to get nervous, or think you’re cheating. Online, however, a live stream is totally OK and
could even form a group of followers.
5. Swearing at the top of your lungs
When you set down all your chips on a single bet and then lose, it is time to yell. When you take
a risk and miraculously win, your arms are going up in the air and someone is going to get
punched. If you like to celebrate when you win and let it out when you lose, your antics may be
better off taking place at home.
