Statistical Chances: Land-Based Vs Online Casinos

Statistical Chances: Land-Based Vs Online Casinos

Brought to you by Gareth

When players decide to try out a new casino game, the first thing that they want to know about is the house edge i.e. their statistical changes of winning. Although both land-based and online casinos are based on the same concept, all things are not equal when it comes to your statistical chances of winning.

So, do online casinos have the same statistical chances as land-based casinos? Keep reading for more information.

In places like Atlantic City and Las Vegas, casinos must set a Minimum RTP, or Theoretical Return to Player percentage, and no slot machine is allowed (under penalty of law) to fall below that minimum. In Vegas, the RTP is 75%, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a poor return like this, unless you were playing at the $1 machines that are located near the exit of the casinos, in a gas station backroom, or at the airport. Sometimes, there are casinos that will erect signs alleging that their games have a payout rate of up to 98 percent, but there’s no way for to know which machine in their line-up is the one that will provide you with more bang for your buck.

On the other hand, most online slots like those on Royal Vegas, pay better and more often than those at land-based casinos, but it’s only by a few percentage points. Plus, no slots powered by reputable online casino software pay anywhere close to the worst slots in land-based casinos.

Royal Vegas is one of the most popular online casino sites in the world, mostly because they offer players the chance to play well over 600 games in categories like slots, poker, blackjack, and more. Because this online casino is powered by the dependable, secure, and high quality Microgaming software, players can have the peace of mind of knowing that they will receive a fair payout, be secure when making online transactions, and play games with the best graphics.

Yet another aspect that sets online casinos apart from their land-based counterparts are their bonuses and other promotions. When you are at a land-based casino, losing $1,000 might get you a free meal. On the other hand, many online casinos, like Royal Vegas, offer sign up bonuses and other promotions that match your deposits up to 100 percent. They also offer loyalty points with more value than those found at land-based casinos. Plus, many casinos have a cash-back program that entitles you to money on your losses, sometimes you may get as much as 25% back.
