Offline vs Online Roulette


Since the classic casino game of roulette is possibly the first image in the majorities’ mind when they hear the word gambling or casino, roulette is one of the fundamental games in all online casinos. Of course every casino game can be found in almost every casino, but roulette will always be a special game for everyone in the gambling world. Roulette is possibly the game with the biggest history behind. In one form or another it has been a constant game for more than 300 years, and today it is associated with gambling all over the world. There are two basic types of roulette games, the European one which is the oldest version around and the American one.

There is one minor difference between the two, which means a lot than it seems: the American roulette has one more number, the double 0 or 00. Since the online casinos are accepting players from all over the world, except places where gambling or online gambling is illegal, usually both can be found in online casinos. The game if played online doesn’t really differ from the traditional game played in offline casinos, from the rules’ point of view at least. Unfortunately or luckily there are some differences between the two. First of all roulette is popular because of the level of excitement it gives the player when they gamble. The roulette wheel became a symbol and this wheel of fortune attracts millions of players every day to the existing online casinos. Unfortunately the main difference between online and offline casinos is the fact that in the case of the online casinos this experience will loose a little bit from its magic. Usually in brick and mortar casinos people are jumping around, shouting at the roulette.

While you can jump around and shout in front of your pc, the whole atmosphere is different and looses its real magic. In the same time this gives some advantages too. Some people are shyer than others. Many turned away from visiting land based casinos mainly because of this issue: in front of your pc there is silence if you’d like, and nobody will tell you that you are dressed inadequate. You can wear comfortable clothes without being asked to leave the perimeters of the casino. You don’t have to be careful of your reactions: usually cursing is prohibited in every casino, no matter that it’s online or not. But if something slips out when you are sitting in front of your pc, the worst case is that someone in the other room heard it, or woke your neighbors. Still, if you write inappropriate messages in the chat you might get banned.

When you enter an online casino you deposit your cash in the account using one of several available money transfer methods. This is an advantage but can turn against you as well. There is one very good advice: always go in a casino with as much money you can afford to loose. This is a good strategy, to set a frame, to calculate the amount of money you are willing to give away as entertainment expenses if things don’t go as you would like. But in the case of online casinos, this might be a problem, because you have a bankroll in the casino. Since the deposits are done online, the players can deposit new amounts of money at any time. Therefore this very good strategy is not available any more for those who are using it.

But in the meanwhile let’s note its advantages too. You don’t have to go to the bank to take out some money in order to visit a casino, you just do it in a couple of seconds in front of your pc, or wherever you might be, as long as you have internet access. The deposits are done instantly, within minutes and you can start to play immediately. As you could see both online and land based roulette have there advantages and disadvantages. Since nothing is perfect this isn’t really a surprise. It only depends on the person itself whether he would like to enjoy the comfort offered by the technology available in the twenty first century, or would he enjoy the unique atmosphere of the traditional offline casinos, with all it’s glamour. It’s up to the player to decide.
