Online Casino Slots vs. Land-based Slots

With over 2,300 online casinos on the Internet, playing online casino games is more popular and safer than ever. When online casinos first emerged in the 1990's players were reluctant to play online.

However, as the Internet grew and people became more comfortable with online activities that has changed. 99% of online casinos are legitimate businesses, especially in the UK with an occasional bad apple, which is usually a result of poor management rather than anything else.

If you plan on playing online read our new casino players article for some tips and advice.

So how do the online casino video slots stack up when compared to land-based casino video slots?

From an entertainment standpoint both are strikingly similar. Each capable of spectacular graphics and incredible sound effects. As a matter of fact many of the popular land slots are available in several online casinos. Unfortunately USA players can't play them, for free or real.

One benefit online slots ahve over land is the denominations, with land slots, casino operators tend to group their slot machines by coin denomination. If you want to play the penny, nickel, dime or quarter slots you simple head to that section of the casino.

With online casino video slots you simple raise or lower your coin denomination with the click of mouse. Also With online casino slots, your favorite game is always available, unless of course the game server is down or you lose electrical power. With land-based casinos you may have to wait until a machine becomes available before you can sit down and try your luck at your favorite game, which can be somewhat annoying when the casino is crowded.

Sate and Tribal operated land-based casinos offer patrons a compensation system or more commonly know as "comp points". The more you play the more points you accumulate which can be redeemed for various items in the casino's gift shop. Once you start playing you accumulate points that can be redeemed for cash. Like the land casinos the more you play the more points you accumulate.

Most online casinos offer both a player points and a generous signup cash bonus. When you register as real player and make an initial deposit you receive some extra bonus cash added to your bankroll.

Sometimes the signup bonus equals or matches your deposit while other times the signup bonus is a multiple of your deposit. Some casinos offer cash signup bonuses without requiring an initial deposit just to try their games.

Now many land casinos carry slot machines that are "bonus ready slots. Bonus ready slots allow you to download some free bonus cash with your players card.

Payback percentage is an average of total winnings paid out to total wagers placed. Neither online nor land-based casinos can randomly change the payback percentage. When a land-based casino orders a slot machine it orders the slot machine set with a certain payback percentage. The software that controls the payback percentage is sent to an independent lab for certification before it is placed on the casino floor. Changing the payback percentage once it is on the casino floor requires recertification. Many land-based casinos post their monthly payback percentage audit reports on their web sites.

Similarly, an independent auditing firm closely monitors the online casino's software for payback percentage accuracy. The online casino also post the independent auditors payback percentage reports on their web site.

Both the online and land-based casino reports list the overall payback percentage for the entire casino and then a breakdown for each type of game. You can also contact any online or land-based casino and ask what the payback percentage for a particular genre of game is.

Land-based casino slots typically have an average payback percentage of approximately 92% while online casino slots are at least 94% with a high side of over 97%. We list the payback percentage for our online casinos on our Casino Downloads page

Whether you play just for entertainment or to win a few extra bucks you'll find online casinos everything the land-based casinos are and then some!
