When considering the perks of gambling online, convenience definitely ranks towards the top of any list. No longer are gamblers at the mercy of location�they can now play anytime, anywhere as long as...

  ... they have Internet access. And with wireless gaming now hitting the mainstream, gamblers have an even great level of accessibility—like on the way to work or during a lunch break.  Try sneaking off to Vegas during your lunch hour.  
Finally, not only do online players avoid the hassles of travel such as standing in lines at airports, or tediously long drives, they also minimize expenses.  Funds once spent on airline tickets, rental cars and hotel rooms can be added to the bankroll or, better yet, not spent at all.

Less Pressure
One of the best perks in online casino gambling is having the luxury of going at your own pace.  Unless you’re at a multi-player table, online gambling affords players time to better consider their moves and play at a slower pace. In a traditional casino, it can be somewhat intimidating to be sitting at a blackjack table trying to decide what to do while other players and the dealer wait for you.  In an online casino, you can go slowly, play more relaxed and truly consider your moves—without anyone else grumbling about how slowly you’re going.  Similarly, you feel less pressure on your actions, knowing that a misplayed hand won’t hurt the table and make you the enemy of every other player.

More Variety
If you can bet on it, it’s online. Although traditional gaming fare such as casino games, sports betting and poker are still the most common games in town, players who are so inclined can also find an ample number of sites offering horseracing, international lotteries, keno and bingo as well as non-traditional betting options on games like chess, dominoes and pool.

While some online gaming sites take a “cookie-cutter” approach—offering the exact same software and games that scores of other sites use—that approach which was so prevalent in the early days of the industry has all but vanished in today’s creations. Indeed, many sites offer completely unique games that not only aren’t available in other online casinos, but are absent in traditional gambling halls as well., for example, is the unofficial king of proprietary software, providing gamblers with a suite of entirely original games such as “SpaceJack” a video variation of Blackjack complete with progressive payouts, and “Treasure Box” a spin on traditional slots that allows players to hold the reels after each spin.

Never-ending Tournament Action
With poker gaming taking center stage of late, it’s no mystery that the big dogs in the industry offer players a never-ending stream of exciting tournament action.  But poker isn’t the only game that boasts big tournaments online.  Just about every popular game has a tournament presence somewhere on the ‘Net. For example, Global-Player Casino features weekly blackjack and video poker tournaments, Starluck Casino offers some of the biggest online slot tournaments, and Cherry Casino features an ever-changing variety of tournaments including roulette, slots, blackjack, and video poker.

Assistance Available 24/7
Some gamblers avoid online play simply because they fear that if they run into a problem they’ll be on their own.  While this may be a valid concern when dealing with “bad” sites, any reputable online gaming company knows that customer support is crucial to player confidence.  As such, they tend to go all out to make sure that players can contact them 24/7 via a variety of methods. 
While these methods tend to vary from site to site they generally involves a combination of options including toll-free telephone, e-mail, fax, and live chat. 

Gambling Tips and Information
Because so many people are trying out games online that they might not otherwise have played in a traditional setting, many sites now offer extensive “how to” sections designed to teach players the optimal strategies for a wide variety of games. In some cases, players can simultaneously gamble and review charts and strategies found in special tutorial sections of the site. While these tips may not quite replace practice and years of experience, they can serve as excellent references to help players increase their chance for success.
Pretty compelling reasons to play online, don’t you think? The fact that you can get more free money and better odds is almost reason enough in my book. Yes, online gambling does lack some of the ambiance that you’ll find in the glitzy, glittering marble-laden giants that line the Strip, but if solid gambling entertainment is what you’re looking for, Internet gaming sites routinely equal—and sometimes surpass—their terrestrial counterparts.
