To Play Online or not to Play Online: That is the Question

The biggest question in today’s gambling world is; what options are the best to play casino games? It’s not an easy question answer quite honestly and sometimes only you may know the correct answer. Both aspects of gambling have their own characteristics and advantages. Some of these traits may suit your needs better than others. I will have to say that I personal feel online casinos are a superior option over land based casinos.

When playing casino games online, there is no need to get in your, take a bus, fly on a plane or however it is you need to get there. This all costs money to do and can be a very expensive proposition. Having all the games you want to play right in your home is not only convenient, it’s a whole lot cheaper.

You also need to consider how profitable online casinos can be. First off, you have the many bonuses and VIP programs that are being given out by online casinos. Some of these bonuses top over $1,000 just for signing and making a first time deposit. You won’t find any type of bonus like this at land based casino.

The VIP programs continue to reward you just for simply playing. This can be compared to comps at a live casino, but the online comps are a better value. You usually get money as comps online as opposed to a free meal or free hotel room. Don’t get me wrong, I love a free meal just as much as the next guy, but I’d rather have the cash in my pocket and go buy the food myself and still have plenty of cash left over.

Another advantage to casino games online is that you can play anywhere you are. If you have a mobile device with an internet connection such as iPad or iPhone, you can access mobile casinos and play any time you like.

Live casinos do have some perks and are by any means something you should not experience. The atmosphere of a casino is unlike anything in the world. It’s indescribable and should be on your to do list. It’s just that with today’s technology it makes sense to play online. There is so much more to be gained by playing at an online casino that the experience of a live casino isn’t enough to make it a viable, long term option.

We’d like to hear your thoughts and opinions on this matter. Tell us why you think playing online or live is better in your opinion. We always love to hear our readers’ thoughts and feedback.

Casino Games People Hate: It Happens

Believe it or not people feel hatred for basically anything and everything, even something as trivial as a game! Here is a small compilation of casino games people just can’t seem to like…

Online Scratch Tickets

Apparently people can’t seem to find comfort on scratching ticket virtually and love the thrill of the dusty scratch leftovers. Also it seems that people have the preconception that they can’t win with these online scratch tickets as they have not been printed ahead of time.


Although the history of the game of Keno takes us all the way to the beginning of the construction of the great wall of China (which by the way can be seen from outer space), the game is not a hit. I truly wonder how is it that it financed the whole construction of a wall that big if people don’t really like it?


Loved by many…hated by even more. The game of Roulette, as classic as it is, well…it is not very popular among casino games lovers, probably because it is too easy to play and the excitement doesn’t really measure up to what they are looking for, unless you play it on a land based casino with a whole bunch of people rooting for you on the table.


The card game of War has been around for ages. We have probably played it a thousands times since we were little, and that is the exact same reason people don’t enjoy this one in its casino game form. People think of this game as a child’s play and won’t give it the time of day when it comes to make a bet on it.

So there you have it, our list of the casino games people hate. Do you have an specific game you hate?

Casino Bonuses

Everybody has them. Everyone uses them and everyone benefits. So, you shouldn’t find
it extraordinary that we too have great casino promotions but what you should find
remarkable is the extent and size of our bonus promotions.

Matching deposits of 200% and even 300% are basically yesteryears’ left overs.
Matching Deposits of 400-500% ok, now that’s quite competitive right?

Well, suppose we told you that we don’t simply match at 500 or 600 or even 700 but
we do matching deposits at the astounding, “go broadcast to your entire fraternity”
rate of 1000%.

Incredible huh?

Yeah, we thought you would think so. Go ahead facebook this article and let your
Frat buddies or past alumni  know that you’re the smart one.

So, how does this rather interesting bit of casino bonus stuff actually work?

If you sign up and use the coupon code “WELCOME1000” this immediately gives you
access to the 800% signup bonus. This is good with any deposit of $25 or more.

Pretty cool so far, but the bonuses continue. Suppose you lose all your money –
sounds like something your girlfriend would say. But,…this never happens to me, by
the way. Ha ha,  of course it does, who are we kidding? Losing your money at a
casino happens all the time, right?

Well go ahead bet big, don’t be shy, because if you lose, you can redeem using the
bonus code above and get 100% of your deposit back as a cash back.

Wow, that makes it potentially 900%.

So, now you are asking, how about that 1000%. How do we get that? Ha ha, so you’re
as thirsty as I am huh? Fine, here is the last secret. Deposit $100 or more, use the
code above “WELCOME1000” and an extra 100% will be added to your initial bonus
amount automatically.

So, my friend, why are you still reading this?

Go impress your significant other, deposit $200 now and play like a king with $2000
in chips.

Convenience store clerk wins 258 million, buys ticket with his last $30

Chris Shaw -a gas station clerk from Missouri- may be having lots of visits from long lost relatives in the near future as he just became a multimillionaire on Wednesday evening after hitting a 258 million dollar jackpot on the Powerball lottery.

This 29 yr. old former trucker and family man bought the ticket with the last $30 he had, at the same store where he worked at for $7.25 an hour wages.

The Missouri millionaire has only made plans for a few things so far: to fix the two front teeth he’s got missing, to take his spouse and their five children (yes, you heard it right: five children!) to Disney World and to pay off his buddy for a debt of $1,000 he acquired to purchase a used truck.

The story is even more astonishing after watching his statements caught on video:

Mr. Shaw bought the lucky $5 lottery ticket at the end of his daily shift, after his first 3 weeks of being employed without suspecting he was about to become the winner of 10th biggest Powerball jackpot ever. In fact, he forgot to check the winning numbers on the same night these were announced and only found out he’d won the prize on the next morning, on Thursday.

Coincidentally the store where he works and bought the ticket at is named “Break Time”, which is exactly what Chris is about to experience knowing his bills are paid for and his family will be financially secure for life with over $125 million dollars in winnings (which is what he really gets after taxes if chooses to get the payment as a lump sum) which should be enough for him to take care of his loved ones and any bills he had at home waiting to get paid.

This is your average American guy, earning a living paycheck to paycheck to feed his entire family through hard, honest work. While SEC officers with yearly salaries ranging $222000 get suspended from their jobs for spending hours surfing the internet for porn – at the time the US economy crumbled- this humble Missouri native isn’t sure he’ll quit his job just yet – almost a shocking reaction given today’s society values.

This in particular, is what makes it a refreshing story praised in most forums, other casino blog sites as well as news sites on the internet with comments like “This is great news. It’s good to see large amounts of money going to someone who will really appreciate it. Good for him…I do hope though that he gets some professional financial help soon so that he doesn’t get robbed or tricked”
