Online vs Land-Based gambling venues: which do you prefer and why?

Featured Comment

I was wondering how many of you play online gambling casinos cause you have to and have no other choice or is it cause you prefer the online style of play?

for example if you live in Las Vegas right near all the casinos and everything you wanted like that gambling wise...
would you still play online or would you rather play in person?

im sure there are both kinds of people in our community and idk, the thought just entered my mind and wanted to put it our there and start a discussion : )

I have a dream to travel and play in Las Vegas.

But for now i prefer online casino play . In my town we have 4-5 landing casinos. You can`t win a lot in small casinos where money wager is low.

In online casino peoples wager lot of money and slots and other games give bigest wins. 

I hate only casinos with manual whithdrawns who send your money after 1-2 days.

I do not know but, what difference does it make? In both the situation you are gambling. You either will win money or loose it. You will still have the same adrenaline rush and the same excitement.

Well people would like online mostly because it is anonymous and it is safer to play and you can play anywhere and anytime you want.

Obviously online is much more convenient, you can play in your underwear if you'd like to.  But I prefer land based for the atmosphere, and honestly one never knows how truly fair some of the online casinos are.  Provably fair is definitely nice, but there are games I enjoy that are now provably fair.  I just wish there were more land baseed casinos closer to me, closest is about 1.5 hours away.

personally for me its gotta be online as for instance in land based casinos they can spot if your bluffing and not always a nice atmosphere face to face at least when people start raging online can be moderate extremely quickly etc and online gambling is in the space of your own home etc its more peaceful:)

i much prefer land based casinos, i cant win anything online, at land based they are regulated, they have to pay out a certain amount to make if fair, online is not regulated , the return online is horrible, and ive noticed the sites get timng harder and harder to win , every time the value of btc goes up its harder to win. my online days are numbered im tired of loosing, AND i get all sorts of kickbacks at landbased casinos everything from free over night rooms, cash vouchers and im talking $50 or more, and vouchers for all you can eat buffets. online you have to chat just to maybe get a few pennies in rain its just not worth spending the money, its been over a year since i won any sizable amount online, two years ago i used to hit some good ones..not anymore

I prefer gambling in a physical land casino. I enjoy seeing the dealer live, cracking joes with them, winning and holding real chip, pressing buttons on slot machines etc. I prefer that anyday over online gambling. Online gambling just makes it super convenient lol.

I really want to go to Las Vegas, but for several reasons I can't afford it! I would love to play it personally, but in my country it is prohibited by this choice is only for online!

I prefer online, I think even if I was in LV that still would apply! I don't like that sort of crowds, there's always risk of getting conned/mugged/pickpocketed in or near them. And it's time consuming. Why do that when you can sit on your comfy couch at home and play some dice on stake!?

I actually like gambling online because I'm in the comfort of my home and I get to chat with some of the most amazing people while I play.

I do like going to casinos and playing at the tables or slot machines but i prefer online.

Well I prefer gambling online, 'cause you can't really get out of casinoes if you're drunk, it's like a maze :D.

Some other people are shy, so they might prefer online 'cause of this too.

I could go back and forth on which one I like more all day lol.
I really enjoy going out to the casino's, as it's nice to get away from the typical routine and it's a fun choice for a night out.
But I would have to say that online gambling has been a ton more convenient for me, as I have two young children full-time.
I feel they both provide the opportunity  for a way to socialize with others.
I do like that you have a variety of options for payment when gambling online though.
I feel like online gambling has definitely been trumping going out to the casinos for me by far considering the convenience of it.
