Real Money Casino Action Goes Virtual

To curb the spread of the coronavirus, land-based casino business has basically ground to a halt. Many governors in states with land-based casinos have ordered them to close their doors to the betting public. Casinos in other gambling states have voluntarily suspended play.

How long this situation lasts is anyone’s guess.

However, players looking for action do not have to go any further than their favorite online sportsbook.

Modern technical advances and highly sophisticated software applications have brought casino gambling online through online sportsbooks.

While online real money casino gambling has been around for quite some time, today’s finished product has basically closed the gap with slots and table play at a land-based venue.


In many cases, online sportsbook casinos offer even more opportunity to gamble than the average brick and mortar casino establishment.

In most cases, online casino play can be funded through your sports betting account or transferred from an existing one. The online books have made it extremely easy to move money around within one general online betting account.

There are literally thousands of different online slot games.

The average online book probably offers several hundred different titles in its slots lounge.

From the classics to the newest game releases, even the most avid slots player can find what they are looking for online.

The biggest draw with the biggest win potential are online progressive jackpots. Just like the big Las Vegas casinos on the Strip, a lucky online slots player can walk away with a live-changing jackpot win.

There are basically two different ways to play table games in your online sportsbook’s casino.

Electronic versions of Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Craps replicate the same action you would find at an actual table game. Most sites also offer a separate video poker section with multiple versions of that popular card game.

Live-dealer table games duplicate the action of land-based table games.

Actual dealers working in live studios make it possible to stream the action to a desktop or laptop. Advanced mobile betting platforms bring the same level of action to any handheld device with internet access.

Every top-rated online sportsbook understands the value of customer loyalty.

They get new customers started with a generous welcome bonus package. They also take care of their regular customers with ongoing promotions and incentives.

From deposit matching bonus offers to free spins and cashback rebates, all online casino play is part of an extensive rewards package.

Also big are ongoing tournaments for slots, blackjack games and poker. The money can add up fast if Lady Luck is on your side.


One of the best aspects of online casino gambling other than ease of use is overall variety. There is a higher level of flexibility with an online site as opposed to travel and timing concerns with land-based casino trips.

Legality is no longer an issue given the proliferation of offshore gambling sites catering to US players. The online sportsbook industry took the lead on this initiative going all the way back to the advent of the internet.

With just about every major sports league and sporting event on hold, real money casino gambling can easily fill the void for all of you action junkies out there. With just about every land-based casino on hold as well, your online sportsbook casino remains a few clicks away.
