    It has been 1 year since I start playing online even I has no experience on land casino before.... (and how dare I was... LOL ;) )

    I have always feel half excited and half quilty about online gambling because I was told it's a "bad" "bad" hobby since a little kid. Somehow, I do enjoy it and made a little extra money so far and always make sure I can afford it no matter win or loose. Besides, I don't have to drive or dress up if I want to play and I can play at anytime I want. That's why I love playing at online.

    I am into "playing" at stock now and very few casino this year. I can't help to think GAMBLING is human nature. That's why it seems I can't get rid of this hobby. And my heart will be beating and feel up and down when I play. It's fun to me.

    What's your feeling about gambling beside it's a very expensive entertainment? What's your feeling about gambling? Do you play more at online or land casino? Just wondering.... :rolleyes:

    I'm member at most of London casino's and therefore I spend most of my time there rather than online when am free.I believe that live is much more exciting although you don't have the calmness like at home in front of the pc

    I like land based casino's. Online casino's cheat. I don't play them anymore. I know if I win at a land based casino I'll get paid. Too much left to chance playing online, If I do anything online these days it's play for fun mode only. Not even tempted. Their not getting anymore of my money. :cool:

    I prefer land based, simply put because of the comps. I can call one of my hosts and have a very nice suite with "beverages" waiting for me. I simply ask and I can get pretty much anything I want while I'm @ the casino. They take good care of me and when I get a bonus offer or match play in the mail, I don't have to worry about some absurd wr. I like the service, I like the way they address me as Mr. I like when I play high limit bj my drink never goes below 1/2, my smokes never run out and win or lose they are always pleased to see me. I can cash out in mins, and I never have to hear an excuse why they can't pay me right now.
    I know, I know, "why do you play online stupid?", ACTION, online I can play NOW, I don't have to drive anywhere, I can do it in my bathrobe and I never have to wait for a shuffle.
    I guess they both have their ups and downs. ;)

    Unlike others, I don't play on land based casino much.
    The only place that worthing going is las vegas becuase you can find fully pay VPs there. Still, the variance and hourly rate (only a few bucks per hour) sucks.
    Unless I want to count cards, which I am not really good at, I don't see any point whatsoever to play on land based casino. It's a total waste of my money and time IMO. Their comps is a joke. Why bother wagering (and loosing) so much money for a free buffet when you can spend $10 for one?
    Online casino offer way better odds than land based casino. Promotions, bonus, over 100% payout, you name it.
    I know many people complaining about the fairness of online casinos. Guess what, I kept records on both of my land based and online play. The payout of online casinos is much, much, much better than land based casino and rightfully so.
    If I want to have fun, I'll go to vegas to watch shows and have fancy dinner. On the other hand, online casino is where the money is. :thumbsup:
    ps: stocks, mutual funds, and real estates are other good ways to "gamble".

    I hate sitting in one spot for very long, so the real casino is for me. The greedy old women slot players are the downside. I've run into some pretty rude ones. A miserable bunch they are!

    I've won, way, way more in online casinos than in Vegas or wherever. Even in the short term I do better. But then in land based casinos, I am much more frugal with my money. Online it's too much like play money.

    I go to Vegas mainly to hang out with friends (it's usually during the G2E in September), to people watch, and to catch a couple of shows. When I lived in San Diego, I went there mainly for the cheap buffets, but they aren't so cheap anymore.

    What I like about playing online, is that it's always there - and I can play for fun or real money, whatever the case may be. There are also my favaorite games that I play exclusively -- just like in Vegas. I have only certain games I like to play.

    m249a mentioned he liked being treated nicely in land based casinos, I think the same can be said about certain online casinos as well. There are a number that appreciate the value of VIP players because they know the business. This is especially true when the operators have experience working in the operations of landbased casinos. 32red for instance.

    The downside of course is this industry's realiance on the "bonus". This is the Frankenstein monster running amuck in the cyber casino countryside.

    Both have there postive and negatives

    Land casino, in california is cool, it just u might get rob going home, cause some jerk falling you. The hood casinos you play agaisnt other players, which cause a problems sometimes cause other races get mad if you bank with another race. what i mean is you become the house and you can team up with someone else to make the house pot covers the table.
    Another good thing is they have alot of free tourments. Just thought of another bad point, people asking you for money in hollywood and crstyal park casino.

    Land casinos in Vegas are cool, just way to much smoke and the dealers love to tell you how to play. Free rooms i love and free food and free spa. I can stay in vegas all most a whole month for free with all the free rooms they give me.

    online casinos, good points is u can play naked , no smoke, have sex while u playing, smoke pot. You can play more games faster.
    Bad points, sometime take to long to get your money, casinos change terms
    spyware,spam and double charge on your credit card. Send to much doc to x crooks.

    But i just love the game

    The Meister is correct.... As a slot player, I can attest to the fact that online slots are much more generous.. I used to play only Video Poker for years, both online and land-based, and I think that online VP has the edge in that respect also, although not as big as the difference that I have found to be in the slots. Look at the difference in the overhead costs. Ever been in Caesar's Palace or the Mirage etc.? Online casinos can operate out of a barn for all we know.

    Online casinos also have a lot of overhead: customer support, license expenses, affiliate expenses, neteller fees, bank fees, rent, advertisement cost, not to mention bonuses.

    I only played at real land casino once and had a great tiem. However, the smoke bothers me a lot and the drinks made me a bad player (who cares, I just want to try.) I was lucky to walk away even after several Vodka drinks. LOL~ Yes, it's fun and very excited at land casino.

    Maybe I will try again. :p

    That's the whole point of giving you free drinks (but notice its ONLY when you're playing that they are free). They want you to play badly and lose more. I always get bottled water when I'm playing, maybe a pepsi if I want something with some flavor. Never alcohol though.

    There is something about the ambiance of a land based casino. I like to visit one about every 3 or 4 months. I'll play the tables and slots sometimes, but never play videopoker there. I just don't see the point, since I can play that anytime from home with the same or better odds.

    Talk about VP. The casino was packed due to big holiday. And I was playing at 1 VP machine and chatting to a lady next to me, then walk away for a drink and came back. The lady told me the "next hand" after I left is 4 of A kind: Ace!!! Damn~ Should hold on one more hand....LOL~ ;)

    Compared to land-based casinos?? You're out of your mind! You can't even begin to compare the costs of running a land casino to an online casino. You're thinking in terms of your income. It's alot of money for you or me.. but you have to consider the gross intake of a popular online casino... it would probably blow our minds if we knew how much is deposited weekly into a casino like Intercasino or Captain Cook's for example.

    FL still managed to lose money last month and you would probably agree they have a lot more traffic than Captain Cook's.

    I think I read it here or maybe on some other message board they lost something like $3000 in February or March and that's why they decided to increase WR for bonuses. I don't have any proof, take it FWIW.
