The fastest growing segment of the real money casino gambling industry is playing the games online. Huge casino gambling states such as Nevada and New Jersey are driving market growth through the expansion of licensed and regulated online casino gambling.
While land-based casinos are turning to online gambling sites to drive their growth, online sportsbooks with casino software solutions in place for the past two decades or so still corner the market.
In fact, collaborations between large casino companies and online sportsbooks have become common as individual states continue to expand into both online casino and sports betting.
The original offshore sportsbooks that went online to cater to the US sports betting market have already gained a strong foothold in the online casino industry for a few simple reasons:
> Online gambling software expertise and experience
> Overall variety of casino games
> Live dealer table games
There are many other reasons why online sportsbooks operate casinos with a large player base. The vast success they have enjoyed in the multi-billion-dollar sports betting industry has helped fuel the growth of the casino side of the online business.
Slots Are King
Slots are still the No. 1 source of revenue for any casino, land-based or online.
Avid slot players can find hundreds of different game titles at any of the top-rated online sportsbooks offering a casino. From the classics to the latest game releases, all the favorite varieties of slots are well represented.
Three and five-reel games, 3D versions, added bonus games and progressive jackpots are the main alternatives any avid slot player can choose from.
Most online sites also offer bonuses for regular play in the form of free spins. This is an excellent way to promote a new game title or specific themed game to match the season.
Along with slots, video poker has become extremely popular with online players.
There are dozens of different variants of poker available. From the basis such as Jacks or Better to hard to find poker titles, online sportsbook casinos continue to expand the list of options to choose from.
How To Properly Play 10 Common Video Poker Hands
Electronic table games are another big draw at online sportsbook casinos. Blackjack and Roulette lead the way as the two most popular table games. Players can also test their luck and skill playing Baccarat, Craps, Keno and even Bingo.
The typical table game section also expands poker options with games covering Texas Hold’em, Pai Gow, Caribbean Stud and Caribbean Draw. There are also multiple versions for all of these games to always keep things interesting.
One of the fastest growing ways to gamble online at your favorite sportsbook is access to live-dealer table games. Using advanced technology and sophisticated gaming software solutions, a Live Casino continues to bridge the gap between land-based venues and online casino sites.
The two most popular live-dealer games cover Blackjack and Roulette. Some online books also offer live Baccarat and live poker rooms. Specialty games such as Deal or No Deal, Wheel of Fortune and Monopoly are starting to expand their online coverage.
The more appropriate question active players should be asking themselves is what can’t you bet on at an online sportsbook casino? That would be a one-word answer…nothing!
A big part of the services that my marketing company, Blue Pointe Advisors, LLC offers is written content for sports betting websites. I have been working as a full-time sports betting writer for the past nine years following a previous career in the field of sales and marketing.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to write about my true passion in life; the world of sports. I also enjoy concentrating the bulk of my pieces towards the betting angle in sports.
It is always a challenge to take past results and current form to try and correctly determine a future result. Sports brings out the unpredictability in what should be a fairly predictable outcome based on the stats, facts and recent trends in a particular matchup. The one thing that I have learned over the past decade or so is that when it comes to betting on sports there is no such thing as a lock.
The main objective with my writing style is to create insightful articles on a wide variety of sporting topics that can provide an edge to today's sophisticated online player. While there are times when my predictions fall well short of the actual outcome, I still enjoy trying to come up with a logical explanation to support my views on every pick I make.
My love of sports started a long time ago when I was just a kid growing up just outside Philadelphia. While I was a big Phillies, Flyers and 76ers fan, my number one team was always the Eagles. My dad was a season ticket holder from 1961 to 2002 and I would honestly say that he missed less than a handful of games than more than a few dismal seasons.
I was fortunate enough to go to a number of Eagles’ games back in the day including the 1980 NFC Championship when Wilbert Montgomery ran roughshod over the bitter rival Dallas Cowboys to lead Philly to their first appearance in a Super Bowl. Flash forward 40 years later and am I still celebrating the thrilling victory over New England in Super Bowl LVII. I know that my dad was smiling down on that one.
