Online Casinos vs Offline

It seems that a small country of 5.5 million people can be a good market for online casinos. The Danish Gambling Authorities released a statement with some interesting figures. In the first three months of 2012 the operators who got a license had a gross income of 63 million euros, while the estimates for the whole year are close to 250 million. From these figures, 152 million are expected to be generated from sports book operators, while 98 million from online casinos. All figures are in euros.

But what we really found interesting in these reports is the fact that online casinos outperform land based casinos, showing that players prefer the advantages online games offer compared to offline. Let’s see some of the most important of them:

Bonuses – Sign up and deposit bonuses, as well as cashbacks and comp points, exist in all online casinos and give players the opportunity to play with more money that they deposited. Of course they have terms and conditions, but these can be met relatively easily. Offline casinos don’t offer bonuses and in some cases charge player to enter their premises.

Range of games – There are online casinos with 600 different games, huge progressive jackpots, exclusive game variations. They also offer bets from as little as one pence, when in offline casinos the minimum bet is much higher (especially in table games) and the range of games not that big.

Comfort of home – For us the major advantage of playing in an online casino. It’s nice to visit a land based casino every now and then, to enjoy a drink and some bets with friends, but regular players don’t have the time to do that. Online casinos offer entertainment from the comfort of your sofa.

Payout – Because costs are lower than those on land based casinos, online casinos can offer higher payout ratios that in many occasions are above 95%
