5 Reasons to Gamble Online

We’re in a digital age. As people run down streets holding up their iPhones to chase digital Pokémon, older generations shake their heads, wondering what the world will look like in 10, 15 years. One thing’s for sure, physical items, like cash, books, movies, etc. will continue to be replaced by digital variants for convenience and ease of use. As much as we lament the end of a world full of physical things, we can’t deny the convenience of choosing their digital counterparts.

Casinos are part of the shift to a digital world, and they’ve gained in popularity since the first ones opened in the 90s. A study conducted at the University of Lethbridge surveyed 1,920 online gamblers to find out why they prefer digital casinos over brick-and-mortar ones. See below for the top five reasons why people choose to gamble online:

5. Privacy

Privacy is often cited as a reason people gravitate toward online casinos. Many people feel uncomfortable playing casino games in a public setting and prefer the privacy and anonymity that online casinos provide.

4. Distance from Casino

A big benefit that comes with transitioning to a digitalized world is the reduced need to drive places. Sure enough, many survey respondents stated that they prefer to play online because it eliminates the need to drive far distances to the closest casino.

3. Comfort

The fact that you can spin a roulette wheel while cozied up in an armchair appeals to a lot of players. Forego dress codes and play in your pajamas while still enjoying VIP treatment from the comfort of home. 

2. Ease

Physical casinos can be intimidating to new players. Learning a new game on the fly is tough, and even tougher while wagering actual money. Online casinos offer environments that are more conducive to learning new games; you can play at your own pace and practice any game for free.

1. Convenience

The majority of people prefer playing at online casinos over their physical counterparts because of the convenience factor. People have less time nowadays, so making a trip to the neighborhood casino doesn’t always fit into people’s schedules. With online casinos offering the convenience of playing at any time, day or night, and offering the ability to play very short sessions, they’re becoming the preferred gambling choice of busy individuals.
