Online Blackjack VS Casino Blackjack

For some people, this is no issue at all.  Yet there are those who feel that one is better than the other.  Let us take a look at the pros and cons of each type of gambling and then you decide which one is better.

The Commute

For the traditional brick and mortar casinos, you would have to admit that you need to find the best casinos in order to get the most out of the experience.  Where do you find the best casinos?  Unarguably, Las Vegas would have the widest and best choices.  This is all well and good for you if you live within the vicinity.  However, if you are based in say, somewhere like Maine, it is not an easy commute to Vegas.

Of course, there are other casinos which may be nearer.  The point is, you have to get off your butt and go out to get there.  With an online casino, all you need to do is go on your computer.  So it remains clear that if you do not fancy riding out and driving to another location, a brick and mortar casino may not be for you.

The Choices

So which option offers more in terms of choices (casinos and the games that they offer).  It really depends.  If you are merely going to the casino nearest you, you may have limited choices.  However, if you go to Vegas, your eyes will pop out with all the things laid out in front of you.  You can choose from a very wide array of casinos and an even wider array of games inside each.  Online, you probably would have as wide a choice.  There are countless online casinos to choose from, each of them offering lots of games.

Bonuses and Perks

If you are a high roller then get ready for the best perks in offline casinos.  However, if you are the average person, don’t bet on it.  Online casinos probably offer more in the way of matching bonuses, sign up bonuses, and the like.  This is one reason a lot of people prefer playing online – they seemingly get more out of their money.


Perhaps nothing would beat the real life casino when it comes to ambiance.  No matter how much online casinos try to simulate the atmosphere offline, we guess there’s just not doing it.  You have to be there physically to experience all the sensations involved.  Of course, there is a downside to this – imagine going to a casino on a Saturday night.  It would be jampacked and you would hardly find room to breathe.  It is worse in Vegas when tourists (like you!) flock in and clog up the casinos.
