Well, first off, forget the obvious reasons. We all know that the convenience of online casinos for those who are far away from any brick and mortar casino is the best of all. I mean, to be able to retire to your lair, turn on your computer, connect to the Internet and find your in-home casino gives you the ultimate in privacy while engaging in your favorite poker or casino game. Many of us prefer to play in private and not have anyone minding our business at the tables, right?
But apart from those obvious reasons, what is the next most important allure to online casinos. Well, believe it or not, and despite the spate of cheating scandals we´ve heard about occuring online, especially in poker, it is indeed safety and lack of cheating. That´s right! I said LACK of cheating.
The early online casino pioneer in the UK such as the live casino at William Hill and Ladbrokes have really made cheating-free online gaming their priority. As most online cheating scandals have been the result of hackers or insiders breaking into sites´ security program codes to fix the outcomes of games, new and sophisticated technology has been steadily evolving to make this almost impossible to do. Whereas in a brick and mortar casino it takes only one crooked dealer manipulating cards or dice to cheat you, in today´s state-of-the-art online casino, it would take a group of the world´s highest paid computer-tech experts working in collusion to pull of a modern online-casino scam.
And notice I said "highest paid." This is further protection for online casinogoers because when people creating the online casino software are honest, there is much less reason for them to ever think about being dishonest.
So put away whatever doubts you have and visit your online casino--even if the brick and mortar one is right down the road.
