1. Rain Check
Have you ever been on a roll at a machine but desperately needed a sandwich? Imagine if you
could just leave your tokens sitting on the counter and get a bite to eat. Impossible, right? Not
online. Online casinos provide the freedom to get up in the middle of a game, come back two
days later, and finish it off. How’s that for flexibility?
2. Watch and Learn
Ever want to record yourself playing an intense game and see what went right or wrong? There is
no way a video camera is getting past security, and no one is going to stand idly by while a smart
phone is recording a game, but on a computer, all bets are off. Screencasting programs like Jing
and AviScreen are free for the taking, ready to make a change in your game.
3. Call it a Day
Online, when you run out of money, you run out of money. No matter how fast deposits claim to
be, they still don’t give players access to the money until it completely goes through. The wait is
an excellent time to realize that the chips will still be there another day.
4. Keep it Low
Want to run into your boss at the casino? Probably not. How about your ex? Online, you might
accidentally run into someone you know, but their name will be Nickifan007 and your name will
be bballpro9001. There’s something to be said for anonymity.
5. Find Your Soulmate (Machine)
After night after night wandering the floor looking for a slot machine with the right vibe, you
might just get lucky and find one that really speaks to you. It might make just the right noises
when you win, it might tease you with enticing glimpses at a jackpot, or it might just have
adorable kitten and puppy graphics that make it hard to walk away. The next time you come in,
you’ll probably make a bee-line right to that machine only to find someone else playing at it.
Online, your favorite machine will always be waiting for you.
6. Make Your Own Hours
Do you work nights? Spend peak hours relaxing at home or out with friends? Is the only time
you have to gamble at 5:00 am on weekdays before work? In person, you are out of luck, but the
online casinos are up and couldn’t be livelier.
