The Online Casino Advantage Article

Online casinos are a great tool for the gambler. While they lack the ambiance of a real world casino, they have several advantages. Many online casinos have multi-player gambling games -- aside from just Poker -- and this is helping create a new type of ambiance.

If online gambling is legal where you live, you can turn on your computer and gamble anytime day and night. Sure, you might know that, but think about it for a moment. In the old days, you had to jump through all sorts of hoops to gamble, and most of it was shady. Today, you can win cold hard cash anytime you get the urge.

Speaking of money, all solid online casinos offer many cash out options. One of my favorites is NETELLER. I can take money from an online casino, put it in my NETELLER account, run to my nearest ATM and presto -- real cash in my hand. Unlike the real world, there's no cashier staring me down trying to make me feel guilty for not leaving a tip.

Oh boy, I just said the T-word -- tips. My goodness. Have you been to a real casino lately? Everyone has their hand out for your money. You can feel the dealer's eyes piercing your soul as you get up from the table with a mound of chips. They want their cut, and you better give it to them.

I'll admit it. I'm a big tipper (20% usually). I'm a nice guy, and I feel bad if I don't. Think about that. I'm losing 20% by winning. How crazy does that sound? I love online casinos. There's no one to tip. I just cash out and enjoy my winnings. The result is a ton of cash in my pocket instead of the dealers.

I don't know about you, but when I go to a casino I valet my vehicle. There's another tip waiting to happen. If I don't drive, I pay the taxi and yes, I tip him or her too. Everywhere you look, money is leaving your pocket when you play in the real world. Online casinos put so much money back in your pocket; you might not even realize it.

Want to hear about another money pit? When you visit a brick and mortar casino, you're hostage to their table limits. Maybe you want to play $5 single deck Blackjack, but all they have is $25 single deck Blackjack or $10 8-deck Blackjack. Would you drive all over the world looking for $5 single deck Blackjack?

Thanks to online gambling, you can sit in the comfort of your own home, work or wherever and find the game and table limit you desire. You'll always find that 9/6 Jacks or Better machine, that low-limit single deck Blackjack game, or that low-limit Roulette table.

Anyway you slice it, online gambling is convenient and it can put more money in your pocket. If your goal is to simply win some money, online casinos are your ticket to riches.
