Would You Gamble Online At A Land Casino?

8 replies • Last post

Ok, I have seen some casinos claiming that they are going to implement "on site computer gambling", which would allow players staying at a casino's hotel to gamble online through their computers. Of course, the software would be specific to the casino, and you wouldn't be able to play anybody or any games outside of the grounds.

Would you be tempted to try this? I don't think that I would. If I am staying at a casino resort, I would just assume stroll down to the casino floor and play.

Can anyone spell out how this would even be worth it?

I don't think that would be tempting. I get the itch to go to the land casino like every other month or so, and if I wanted to play online, I would prefer to do that from home, I guess.

Also, where are "their" computers? I don't see any at my casinos. When I go, and I am working, I have to bring my own computer and work up in my room or outside their coffee shop. Bad idea, imho.

When I used to play Hold'em at the bowling alley/bar there was a guy who always had his computer with him, and he would be playing online while he played at the table, lol. I guess there was not enough excited for him at either place, so he had to do both. I always thought that was funny.

Imagine going on holiday, and staying in a hotel room, and you never have to leave the room to gamble! Sounds pathetic actually. But hey I am sure there will be someone with far too much money who likes it.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

Boring! To me, home = online gambling, when I want quiet and want to save on gas money, etc. Land Casino = getting out among people, taking in the entire experience. I cannot do that from a hotel room with a computer on my lap. I could do the same at home. I would hate to think I was ever so hooked as to have to do BOTH, like play during the day on the floor, then in my hotel room at night or vice versa, lol. I just don't see it, myself, but I am sure some will find some advantages.

I think you hit the nail on the head there Hope. Going to the land casino is all about the sites and sounds, the people and energy and excitement. Especially around games that are pretty boring online, like craps.

There are times though when I get sick of people, people being rude, grabbing a machine. I try to avoid the casino at "rush hour" times. If I was comped a free room, I might stay in there to play some games. I can do that in my jammies. Smile There are also people who don't like crowds. I can see people playing in their room, but overall I think most people like the excitement of the casino.

It's just like seeing a movie, it always seems better when the audience is really into the movie.
