During the past decade the online casinos in the USA went
from a new way to entertain yourself to a whole new level of gambling online.
Hardly anyone believed back in the days that the online casinos will gain so
much popularity in the U.S. and dethrone the land-based online casinos. But the
many improvements in the online gambling industry, paired with the recent
economic turmoil have resulted in an enormous increase in popularity of the
online casinos in the U.S.
The online casinos went from a few blackjack games and
a couple of slots to internet software offering over 100 different casino games
with beautiful graphics and sounds, big bonus offerings and elite customer
service (the good US casinos, at least), while the casinos in Vegas and other
states remained in a stalemate. The recent economics troubles only added to the
appeal of the online casinos. No one has to fill up the car with expensive
gasoline, drive for hours, pay for hotel rooms just to gamble at the casino.
With a click of the mouse people are entering the online casinos while getting
free money just for funding their casino gambling account, something Vegas is
yet to catch on to.
With this, it's hardly a big surprise that more and
more US players prefer to gamble at the online casinos, rather than going
through the trouble of visiting a casino in Las Vegas. Of course, there are
plenty of people who still gamble only at the land-based casinos, but the trend
is clear - this is a shrinking audience.
