Casinos in Poland and around the world have been under tremendous pressure, and not just since the pandemic. The thriving business of gambling has been shifting more and more to the Internet for years, and there seems to be no stopping it in 2022.
The reason seems clear – popular among Poles, the so-called “legalne polskie kasyna” offers a vast selection of games, weekly bonuses, and all that without leaving your own four walls.
Little seems to speak for land-based casinos at the moment. We have taken a closer look at the three most significant advantages of online casinos.
Welcome Bonus for New Players
Have you ever walked into a casino and been handed a bag of coins right at the front door to try out the latest slot machines for free?
Of course not, because casinos don’t give away money as a matter of principle. You will also hardly bet $100 at blackjack and get another $100 on top from the casino. What sounds crazy in the real world actually happens in the digital world – i.e. at online casinos.
While standard casinos enjoy a natural regional competitive advantage due to their location, on the Internet, the nearest provider is just a click away. That’s why online casinos have to develop something to attract new customers.
This is usually done via a unique bonus program. All new players receive a casino bonus as a welcome gift, either to test slot machines completely free of charge or at least to receive a bonus on the first deposit.
The idea behind it – is with a few free spins, new players are supposed to get a taste of the casino to play with their own money afterwards.
Thousands of Exciting Games
A second significant advantage of online casinos is the game selection. The best providers often work with more than 20 providers and offer their players well over 1,000 online slots. With a few, there are even over 3,000 slot machines. Whether three or five reels, progressive jackpot, or bonus rounds with free spins – in the online casino, you will find everything!
In the land-based venue, unfortunately, it’s different. Physical slot machines are expensive and take up a lot of space, so the selection is basically severely limited.
Even in the best casinos in Las Vegas, there are usually “only” a few hundred slot games – and we’re talking about the biggest gambling metropolis in the world.
Better Atmosphere Through Live Casinos
Well, there is still one reason to visit a real casino – the atmosphere! The euphoric screams of the winners, the cheering along, the flashing slot machines when the jackpot is cleared. All this is difficult to transfer to the Internet but not entirely impossible, because live casinos continue to gain ground.
In a live casino, the player does not play against the computer, but against a real dealer. The dealer is connected via live stream and distributes the cards in real-time or turns the wheel at the roulette table.
At the same time, the players at the table can chat and cheer each other on. It’s not a complete substitute for the atmosphere in a real casino, but the experience is still unique.
It will be exciting to watch the further development of online casinos and land-based ones. One thing is certain, however – pandemics and increased “working from home” will not make it any easier for the latter to survive.
