There are many reasons why people play in online casinos instead of “real world’ ones and they are usually different for each person that you ask. For one thing, online casinos allow people to enjoy the games that they may have been used to playing without having to put up with all the hassles of “real” casinos such as parking, the long lines, jostling for elbow room at the tables–all of which can put a damper on what would otherwise be an enjoyable experience. With online casinos, you can simply pull up a comfortable chair, enjoy a refreshing drink and change tables as often as you want.
While we have repeatedly made the distinction between online casinos and “real world” casinos. The fact is that they are more similar than they are different. Online casinos are subject to many of the same rules as their real world counterparts are such as age requirements. Most of these sites will only allow players who are at least 18 years old to open an account with them. Some place the age limit even higher at 21.
It is important that you understand these rules before you begin playing. You wouldn’t want to win big and find that you can’t claim your winnings now, would you?
