Much like everything in this world of ours, change came to gambling. Rather than being confined to a physical location, playing online was now an available alternative. Each option has their supporters and even the Free BB team is pretty torn about which one is better. In light of this, we decided to take a look at the pros and cons of each.


Physical Locations

Before the development of the online world, anyone who wanted to experience gambling had to do either of two things. The options were to either:

  • Go to a casino or gambling hall
  • Play with friends

Casinos and gambling halls had their good and bad sides. Like so:


  • Great ambiance – casinos are often built to provide both comfort and excitement for patrons. Depending on where you go, they can even have specific themes that are conducive to longer hours and more spending.
  • Unique characters – there are a lot of different people that you can come across at a casino or a gambling hall. This does not limit itself to the other gamblers that you can share a table with.


  • Costly – if patrons are not careful (or do not read the fine print), they can lose quite a bundle.
  • Far – for a lot of people, physical gambling locations may not be nearby. As such, the options for a lot of the patrons may not be a lot.


Online Casinos

When the online revolution occurred, it was only a matter of time for gambling to reach that particular platform. When gamblers were treated to this option, it brought about a lot of different changes. Here are some of them:


  • Convenience – being able to play online has made the activity of gambling a lot more accessible. While it was necessary for people to travel in order to try out gambling in casinos, online gambling enabled people to play from the comfort of their own homes.
  • Affordability – a lot of websites usually offer rates are highly competitive ranges. Instead of having to worry about additional costs like travel and accommodation expenses, online gambling lets players just focus on how much they will spend on their games.


  • Solitude – a problem with online gambling is the fact that it cuts out the social element of gambling. As you may know, gambling in physical areas usually has a human element to the whole thing. Online gambling pretty much removes this and no amount of online chatting can really make up for that.

The Bottom Line

There is no rule that says that you only should go with one. Gambling at a physical location provides a rather immersive experience to gambling. Players get treated to sights, sounds, and experiences that are enhanced simply by the location. On the other hand, playing in an online casino is a pretty special treat.

No matter which one you choose, it is important that you go with whichever one you are most comfortable with.
