Let’s face it, the time of regular, brick and mortar casinos is at an end. Every year, more and more are closing their doors. Why? It isn’t because people have stopped gambling, no matter how much of a crisis around them, people will always find some extra money to gamble. It’s all because of online casinos.
Those brick and mortar casino owners that failed to see the danger that these online casinos can pose for them or the opportunity it can give them have been quickly swept aside thanks to this avalanche. Every year, more and more online casinos are being registered online. A lot of conventional casinos have already gone online, but there are also a lot of online casinos that never had an actual building before appearing on the Internet.
Running an online casino differs somewhat from running a brick and mortar one. First of all, you don’t need any of the staff that a regular casino has. You don’t need croupiers, hostesses, security. What you need is programers and technical staff. This also means that online casinos need much less staff and thanks to that, it doesn’t have to spend as much money on salaries as a conventional casino. Not only that. Since online casino doesn’t require a building or any of the equipment that you need in a regular casino, it is a lot cheaper to start it as well. Sure, you’ll need a bunch of licenses and permits from various government agencies, but you would need just as many, if not more for a conventional casino as well.
Okay, but what does all of this have to do with you as a visitor and player. One of the things that you have to keep in mind about brick and mortar casinos is that they earn a lot of money through other means, aside from the money you spend on their games. People always tend to forget the accommodations they need to pay if they wish to stay there for a couple of days, and this isn’t cheap at all. With online casinos, all you will ever spend your money on is the actual game.
If you are one of those that have seen one too many James bond movie and expect that all casinos look like that, you will not be happy when I tell you that most conventional casinos are really boring places where people go from one machine to another and putting quarters in them. There are only a handful of casinos like the one you can see on Ocean’s Eleven and, believe me, they are pretty expensive for a regular guy like you or me.
Online casinos is where the future of casinos lie and this is where players now flock. Even those that have never entered a brick and mortar casino now spend time in one of these and discovering just how much fun they can have just playing online poker or black jack or some other game.
