10 Reasons and Benefits
lesson explores 10 reasons why you should learn to play online
Once upon a time gamblers had pretty much just two choices. Those
choices were to pack your things and head out to Las Vegas or on the
east coast, Atlantic City.
You had one other option and
that was to simply stay put and make your bets with some of the
available illicit sources. Now let’s shoot straight to the present.
You can choose either of the
formerly mentioned cities, or choose from one of the many Indian
Casinos that are cropping up across the nation.
When you get the urge
to play, there are betting parlors, card rooms, sports books and even
high-stakes bingo opening worldwide, but we are not always able to just
pick up and go for one reason or another, but we want to play.

There is no dress code requirement or travel expense to get in on the
action. You can play the tables, slots, several poker versions or bet
on your favorite sports team.
With this newfound freedom of online gambling, many traditional
gamblers question the real value of playing online.
Their position is
that not only are the land-based casinos more readily available these
days, but they also offer the same games in a safe environment
regulated. This is a fact that the online gambling companies cannot
currently claim, though they have continually asked the US to regulate
Additionally, they are of the opinion that gambling online is lacking
the same excitement levels that go along with gambling in a traditional

of the factors into consideration, I’m sure your asking now “Why learn
to play online?”
I submit to you that yes, there may be limitations when you learn to
play online like counting cards in Blackjack when the cards are
shuffled every hand. It stands that playing online has quite a bit to
offer the online gambler not only from the standpoint of entertainment,
but strategically as well.
There are many games on the internet, slots in particularly come to
mind, offer payout schedules that are higher than average along with a
wider range of betting limits available.
Add to that the possibility of
winning life-altering jackpots that are associated with some of the
games. Getting beyond that, players can actually look back at most
online casinos and see their play history.
Additionally, you have the
opportunity to check and see which games are best to play, including
the ones that payout best.
Then there’s the ability to change from slot
machines to video poker, to table games without even leaving your seat!
Feel free to experiment with new games and learn the strategies without
the pressure of other people judging every move you make. These
examples barely scratch the surface of the debate.
Now let’s move to the 10 favorite reasons to learn to play
1. A Haven for Better Odds
Depending upon the game of course, those who play on the internet are
routinely treated to better odds when they learn to play online than
they will usually find in the traditional gambling setting. Let’s use
Roulette for example.
A typical Roulette wheel in the US will have 38 numbered slots that
will be labeled 1-36, then the 2 slots for zero and double zero.
is a house edge on this version of the game of about 5.26% while in the
European version of the game there are only 37 slots that are numbered
1-36 and then the zero. There is no double zero slot in this version.
What this ultimately means is that the double zero being removed from
the wheel lowers the house vigorish from 5.26% to one that is much more
favorable at 2.7%. As online casinos cater to an international market,
they will offer both versions of roulette, a
players can capitalize on.
In a similar manner, those that enjoy playing slots will see that the
internet casinos offer payouts that are higher than average of the
traditional casinos. They average somewhere around 97%, with some in
the better neighborhood of 98-99%.
Since most of the
reputable online casinos post their payout percentage average for each
type of game on a monthly basis, those who are willing to invest a
little time can hunt down the sites that offer only the very best odds
for their preferred games.

existing players. These comps take on many forms but will usually
