The timing is right for online gambling to become a breakout profits-earning monster. With the majority of middle-class earners being forced to tighten their belts, the temptation to try their luck at big casino winnings has reached an all-time high. Many people went to their nearest casino after receiving an income tax return and generally blew through it all that same day. Cautious spenders gambled exclusive at online casinos and online poker rooms from the comfort of their own home, where it’s actually more likely to win big than at the live casino.
Compare the number of people ‘buying in’ to casino games out in the real world versus the thousands upon thousands online at a casino game at any given moment. If you have a thousand people all putting up $10 for a game of online bingo, the payout is exponentially better than a 50-person bingo game down the street. With games of skill, like poker, it’s also easier to win an advantage over expert players. When poker pros are unable to ‘read’ a person while playing online, they’re more disadvantaged than the pros sitting in a live casino who are ready, willing, and definitely able to take your entire tax return in a single hand.
If you are new to gambling, you’ll find the online casino a friendly environment to ease into. Of course, that is not to say that the popularity of online casinos is due entirely to being a better environment than live casinos. Part of the allure of a live casino is the decadence associated with risking money – you’ll have expensive drinks, wealthy patrons who flaunt their high status, and infectious excitement around all the big winners of the night—none of this is possible with online casinos.
