Online vs Offline Craps

Online casinos are a big thing these days and almost every brick-and-mortar casino company is making a foray into the online world. This is because almost every off-line casino game can be played on the internet these days, and that too in great fairness. So, you may wonder whether it’s better to play craps on the Internet or in a brick-and-mortar casino. Actually, it’s all about your personal preference.

There’s nothing that matches the excitement offered by actual casinos. A hot roll of dice in an online casino can never match the experience brought about the same at a live craps table, with 10 other players cheering you on! Everyone can be heard laughing, screaming and giving high-fives to each other, when the dices are hot. On the other hand, everyone will share your misery when the dices go cold.

On the other hand, when you’re playing online, you are all alone and there’s no one to share your emotional rollercoaster ride. Obviously you may enjoy playing craps online if you’re a loner and don’t like people around you. There are plenty of people out there just like that. They avoid going into live casinos for the very same reason and can spend hours and hours in front of some video blackjack machine, like a zombie!

Nothing denying that playing online craps is comparatively quicker than playing in a physical casino. The bets fly quickly from one to the next, meaning that you may find yourself out of money more quickly than in a real casino! Craps games played in a live casino on the other hand are much slower. Dealers take their own sweet time in taking down and/or paying bets. Shooters may take an eternity to roll the dice. You may often see them using their own silly routines trying to find the right finger pressure, finger grip or dice orientation, perhaps even going through some weird gyration before actually throwing the dice. But the good thing is that you lose money slowly if you do.

A major plus in case of online craps is the fact that you can play any time from the comfort of your living room. There is no need to fly down to Monte Carlo or some other fancy gambling destination, wasting plenty of money, to win a few pounds at craps. Just put on your pajamas, grab your laptop or tablet, and you’re good to go! You can login, play for half an hour, logout and log back in again whenever you find time.

What more, majority of online casinos provide the facility of previewing the games before depositing money for actual play. Hence, you can always log out and play at a different casino if you don’t like the speed, sounds and graphics of the present one. Furthermore, some online casinos have such amazing graphics and sound features that you get the actual feel and excitement of playing in a real casino! Most of these online casinos also provide a free introductory bonus, with the condition that you can’t cash out unless a certain minimum bet amount or playing time has been met.

So, whether an online casino is better or an off-line one is something entirely up to your personal choice. Both have their own pros and cons.
