Inside the Mind of an Online Gambler

Are online and in-casino gamblers so different? A more interesting comparison is the difference between the two types of online players. Check out David Cash’s look at the mindset of online gamblers from Gaming Today.

Are online gamblers that different from those who play at brick-and-mortar casinos?  Not really, David Cash recently wrote in a piece for Gaming Today.

Rather, Cash says, it’s more important to look at the two types of online players—“those who started playing casino slots at traditional establishments and those who began their gaming experiences online,” he writes.

Convenience and relaxation are major factors for online players, he explains.

“Rather than having to plan and make arrangements every time they want to play a few casino games, online gamblers simply utilize their personal mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer to bring the casino to them,” Cash writes.

“By doing this, online casino gameplay becomes much less of an event, and much more of an everyday pastime.”

Most gamblers have one thing in common: a love for the game. Online players have simply found a way to play their favorite games in a “convenient and low-stress setting” at any time of the day.
