Are Online Casinos in the US Going to Kill Las Vegas?
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

In states in the US where casino games are legal like Pennsylvania, casino revenues have been saved by total collapse due to the availability of online casino games. Brick and mortar casinos have been closed for the meantime due to the coronavirus pandemic but online casinos in the US are still accessible in some casino-friendly states.

So, does this mean online wagering will kill Las Vegas? Let us digress.

Casinos: Different Player Types

The advent of online gaming has made everyone think that it will eventually kick brick and mortar casinos to the curb. However, Las Vegas thrived very well if it weren’t for the coronavirus pandemic. Through the years, brick and mortar venues are still constantly acquiring sizable profits alongside their online counterparts.

This is in due part to the fact that in lots of cases, wagering features two types of players according to Mitch Garber, CEO of Caesars Interactive Entertainment. The newer generation, those who grew up with the latest in online technologies, usually prefer playing online.

Compared to their older counterparts, most senior players are not too keen on keeping up with technology and favour playing casinos the traditional way; visiting their favourite brick and mortar casino venues.

On the other hand, the presence of online casino games complements brick and mortar ones. Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, traditional casinos produced many profits together with online operators. In general, players will go to their preferred casino hubs whenever they can and many will also opt for online ones in case they cannot.

Advantages of Online Casino Gaming

There are valid reasons why some people are into the idea of playing online casinos in the US. Here are the following benefits:

  • Convenient and user-friendly

Convenience is the biggest benefit of online casinos—one can access games through a slew of electronic devices like desktop computers, laptops, smartphones and even tablets.

Online casinos are also a snap to use and creating an account at your chosen site will only take a few seconds, tops. Depositing is also straightforward and most casino sites offer a good range of banking methods to collect your money.

  • Great variety of games

Lots of online casinos offer a satisfying selection of games from slots, table games, video poker and more.

  • Attractive bonuses and rewards

Many online casino sites provide incentives and rewards for new players. There are free plays as well—you can test games first before you decide on a money deposit.

  • Fair, secure and safe

Online casinos are often monitored and assessed by certified e-gaming organizations for fairness regularly. Online casino operators also guarantee the safety of their customers by providing a safe and secured environment, protected by the latest technologies to safeguard their privacy, data and transactions.

There are still some benefits that only brick and mortar casinos provide for gambling enthusiasts though. For one, people frequent places like Las Vegas casinos to completely partake and absorb the experience—this means experiencing the atmosphere of a casino showcase, the sights, sounds, the bar experience, the people-watching and enjoyment of offered cuisines.

Casino enthusiasts will not give up on the live casino experience due to such factors. We also want to feel the energy and cheer offered by brick and mortar venues while also partaking in the convenience of online gaming sites.

Thus, this renders the notion of online gaming casinos beating Las Vegas by a mile, obsolete. The presence of online and even mobile gambling further complements and strengthens the casino industry. The two must exist together to keep the casino industry alive. It is time to check the best casinos in the US today if you’ve never tried one.
