Believe it or not but even in 2012, we still have millions of people all over the world who are totally unaware of the fact that you can play inside an online casino all from the luxury of your own home. Years ago then the only casino experience that was open to the general public was to go into a live casino if one happened to be within striking distance of where you lived. In fact millions of people all over the world simply never got the opportunity to experience a casino and the unique atmosphere that it creates.
With the invention of the internet then the online casino was born and now players have the opportunity to experience all of the conventional casino games without having to leave their own home. The old favourites are present in any online casino that you care to mention. Games like blackjack and roulette are two of the most popular online casino games at this time and that will likely continue long into the future.
Some of the old traditionalists will still favour the more conventional live casino but an online casino has many advantages that the live casino doesn't have. Firstly you can avail yourself of sign up bonuses and no live casino will actually give you free money like an online casino does. Secondly there are the costs associated with travelling to a live casino and the time factor. While live casinos are more social in nature, an online casino certainly takes its rightful place in the modern gambling world.
