The difference between online casino and real casino
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be that much of a difference between an online casino and a bricks and mortar casino establishment. Essentially, both do offer a similar selection of games. However, the subtle contrasts between the two can make a big difference in how much you win and also the flexibility and options in how you may want to play. Despite both having their different pros and cons, between the two options, online casinos are definitely a step ahead. Don’t believe me? Here are just a few of the reasons why.

Free Money

Well, not quite free money, of course, but there is a chance that Lady Luck may be more on your side if you choose to play online. This is because most online casinos nowadays offer free money in the form of free spins, bonuses and special offers to entice new customers and keep regulars choosing their site above their competitors. There is so much competition these days between online casinos and this means a wider variety of offers to take advantage of.

As well as being able to essentially give away free money to keep you coming back, studies have proven that online casinos have a better pay out rate than their bricks and mortar rivals too. This is because the overheads of running an online casino are so much lower than a real casino, so they can then in turn pass these savings on to the customer. The RTP rate – an acronym for ‘return to player’ – has been proven to be up to 97 percent and higher for some sites, so it definitely pays to play online.

Complete Flexibility of Time and Place

One of the biggest differences of playing in an online casino over a real casino is that you can play literally anywhere and anytime. Whether you prefer using a computer, tablet or mobile app there are now so many ways to access your favourite casino games online without any restrictions. Although it can be fun to visit a real life casino from time to time for a special occasion, for the daily player online casinos are a much more practical option and provide the opportunity to play at your pace from wherever you are, whether you are looking to pass the time commuting or fancy spending a quiet night in.

Easier to Keep an Eye on Your Budget

Gambling, however you choose to do it, should always be done responsibly. This means making sure you set a spend limit and stick to it. When playing online, it can be easier to track your bets and take the time to really assess how much you are willing to spend. When playing in a real casino however, things can quickly get expensive. Betting in a group of friends can easily see peer pressure adding a few zeros to the bets you are laying down and it is easy to get swept away by the buzz.

Moreover, real casinos tend to have higher limits when it comes to placing bets, whereas online betting is usually much more affordable, with many online casinos allowing you to play games for mere pennies. When placing your bets online, most casinos will allow you to pay in a variety of ways including convenient methods such as PayPal. However, a real casino will usually want not only a larger deposit but in general be more restrictive about the methods in which you are able to pay.

Greater Game Selection

Unlike real casinos, which are generally tied into a small selection of games, online casinos are able to switch up which games they offer at any time. This keeps things interesting and means you can try your hand at learning a new game whenever you fancy as well as the fun of playing old favourites. As online casinos are constantly trying to innovate and find the next new great game, many will often allow players to have a go at games for free first. This means you may have a greater chance of a win as it allows you to familiarise yourself with the game and brush up on your skills before committing to placing your bet.

As well as offering players a much wider selection of games, online casinos still stay true to a more traditional style of play too. It is still completely possible to play favourite classics, such as roulette and black jack, often in real time. This provides all the feel and benefits of being in a real casino without the inconvenience of having to leave your sofa. It also means that you have more flexibility in the games you wish to play – a single online casino site can provide it all in one place for you.

So what are the perks of real casinos?

Firstly, there is one major way that real casinos still beat out their online counterparts every time. Despite that fact that online casinos can offer pretty much everything a real life casino can, sometimes even better, the one thing they can’t do is create the glamour, excitement and atmosphere of a casino in real life. There is nothing quite like stepping out onto the floor of a casino and seeing the other players and games in motion. Real casinos also provide the opportunity to experience the interaction with dealers face to face, which can ramp up the excitement for some of the more traditional table games. There is also nothing quite like the tangibility of holding your winnings in your hand the moment your numbers come up! Although many online casinos have great community chat rooms, the real life experience of sharing a win is hard to beat. Moreover, some online casinos have a threshold before you collect your winnings whereas a bricks and mortar establishment will pay out immediately.

Despite these great pros of real casino play, overall it is hard to deny that online casinos are streets ahead and are clearly the winner of the two. You can check this online casino comparison to find the best and most suitable one for you to play. The choice is huge so take your time to analyze and compare.

TAPPX CELEBRATES 9TH BIRTHDAY AND LAUNCHES TECHSOULOGY

Tappx, a leading global AdTech company, proudly announces the launch of Techsoulogy, a new corporate brand that unifies a broad portfolio of companies powering solutions for digital advertising, video content, mobile apps and video gaming across mobile, desktop, and CTV platforms.

The launch of Techsoulogy coincides with the 9th birthday of Tappx, which has grown rapidly since 2013 to reach 70 staff, and is forecast to surpass EUR 20 million of revenue this year. Tappx will now become part of the Techsoulogy brand while retaining its own name and unique position in the market. This is a major milestone in the company’s story, providing coherence of branding and messaging to a set of companies that have been launched or acquired by Tappx in recent years, with a total headcount approaching 100.

Alongside Tappx, Techsoulogy will be the corporate brand for four other companies focused on multiple complementary media and entertainment verticals including video generation and monetization, contextual advertising, and mobile game development. Each has been brought under the coherent messaging architecture and visual brand identity, with their own subtle twists. The Techsoulogy brand identity was defined with the help of Collaborabrands, and brought to life with words from Fernando Beltrán, visuals from Comuniza, and digital ecosystem development from Branng. Future brands entering the group will also be part of the consistent identity.

Daniel Reina, CEO at Techsoulogy and the founder of Tappx, commented:

“We believe this new brand architecture is an ideal model for our diverse companies, providing a common thread between them and creating a framework for us to keep growing and moving into new product categories. Tappx has been the engine behind this expansion, consistently growing in revenue and headcount even through challenging economic conditions, but it’s time for it to be part of something bigger.

“This includes not being afraid to talk about our vision for how technology and humanity will interact. How can we contribute human intelligence to artificial intelligence, and what qualifies us to have our say? As Tappx, we pioneered various initiatives to create a safer, more accessible, and more transparent digital environment at the expense of short-term profit: to help publishers adopt IAB standards; select only trustworthy, direct owned and operated traffic; and enable contextual advertising that improves user experience while protecting privacy. As Techsoulogy, we will do far more.”

Fernando Saiz Camarero, CMO at Techsoulogy, added:

“This has been an extensive project that began in mid-2021 when we asked our customers and partners what they value about us. We discovered that alongside our advanced technology, we’re best known for the quality of our people, ways of working, and culture. The team is our most powerful asset, and so we came up with the name Techsoulogy to encapsulate themes of technology, humanity and knowledge. As Techsoulogy, we will constantly explore, learn and improve to achieve more together than we ever could apart.”

Tappx recorded 97% revenue growth between 2020 and 2021 and is set to grow markedly again this year, with forecasts indicating revenue of at least EUR 20 million in 2022.
