Hi all,

Here's an interesting question for discussion...

Why do you think people play online casino or just casino at all? If you are at all in the mood for reading, here's an article I found on the issue. But I personally think its more because people would like to find out what's going to happen next and they like the adrenaline. What do you think?

Unfortunately I cannot access the article you posted here due to some syntax errors. Some of us play casino for pleasure, others to gain money, the reasons can be different as we are different.

For beginners, it is a bit of frustration and challenge.
An aim to hit the jackpot and a bit of temptation, challenging yourself that you have this luck if you'll just continue playing.
And yeah, adrenaline and hoping what's going to happen next

Unfortunately there are other players that can't stop from playing once they begin to do this

Personally I think people play online because of they don't want to go out outside of their house. You can play anytime on the day but just hitting a computer or if they are outside they can always plat thru mobile. Plus the offer those online casino give is very attractive.

Agree what you just said that it is safer and you can play 24/7. Aside from that most of the time online casino update their list of games that we gamblers can choose from. Plus who would not be attractive with the offer's they giving to us just to compliment of playing virtually.

Playing online can be really easy for beginners, you will easily understand the rules, start with free registration and bonus points you get.

In my opinion all above are valid reasons. Online has the advantage of anonymity and comfort, since you play from your own home. I for one like the experience of going to a physical casino however the benefits of playing on online casino are better since you get various deposit bonuses. I always end up playing with double the money I deposit. The important thing is that one keeps to his budget so that an enjoyable experience does not turn into an addiction.

I'm also convinced that the Return to Player on online slots are much better than those found on physical casinos (I think mostly because their costs are lower). Apart from this the multi-million progressive slots available on online casinos are not easily found in physical casinos. The thrill of a potential big win is what keeps me playing (I came close on a couple of occassions) and since I studied the online casino industry and work within it, I know that these are completely random jackpots and you or me can be on the winning side of a multi-million jackpot ;-)

While there are some shady online casinos, the most popular ones are very serious. If you want to try playing online for the first time I suggest you choose a casino which is licensed in one of the serious jurisdictions like Malta or UK, The authorities there take player protection very seriously and make sure that casinos are fair.

On my site (link below) I have a very detailed beginner's guide to online casinos for anyone interested in knowing more.

Good Luck

Play online casino think positive just feel cool playing and games make my life brighter. Play games only for fun and to try your luck, The thing is that in gambling there is ability to win large money along with ability to loose meaningless sum of money, so they play. Playing casino is an easy way to double or more your money. The other reason might be they want to have fun even their not winning.

There are sooo many reasons. Here are a few of them.

No travel costs
No parking costs
No dress codes
No chance of being followed out of the casino and robbed
Eat, drink and smoke while you play
Free play allowed
Free bonus offers possible
Greater variety of games

In my own view, playing in an online casino has two ultimate advantages. One of course is convenience. This allows you to play anytime and anywhere you want. Second would be the fact that you have all the time in the world in choosing which one to play. Not only that, you can also play games at your own pace. Internet is a real game changer.

To my mind playing online is for those like me, who likes to stay home in a comfortable chair and at the same time win money, feel adrenalin. Hazard is a powerful thing! Playing online is great, because you have no need to go outside when it’s cold, follow dress-codes and show your emotions to the public. However, sometimes it’s dangerous for your wallet to play everywhere and without any idea what slot you are using. I advise every newbie to read and research first, there are lots of different online guides which can help for free, without any registration. I started from here EDIT: No advertisement allowed and sometimes try free demo before making bets.
