Gamble in online casinos
Landbased casinos produce large amounts of waste and consume enormous amounts of electricity. The slot machines, bright light and neon all require a lot of electricity. Many people will fly to the casino and stay in a hotel in or near the casino. The air trip, the hotel stay and all the waste and electricity the casino generates all combine to produce a high carbon footprint. There is no way to justify visiting a landbased casino. This is especially true when you consider that there is an excellent alternative that will generate a smaller carbon footprint. I recommend that you visit an online casino instead of a land-based casino.
Online casinos are superior to regular casinos in all ways. They offer more games, allow you to gamble from home and offer better odds than a land-based casino. They are the superior offer even before you consider the environmental impact. An online casino can offer you all the same things as a land-based casino but uses less than 1% of the energy need to run a landbased casino.
A land-based casino needs an enormous building, thousands of employees, millions of lights, and so on. An online casino only needs a couple of servers in a server hall. An added benefit is that you do not need to travel to the online casino. All you need is an internet connection and an outlet to power your computer or cell phones.
Online casinos are the greener alternative.
What games can you play?
Online casinos feature all the games you expect to find in a regular casino. You will find all popular table games such as Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Caribbean stud poker and more. You will also find video poker and a very large selection of different slot machines. The selection of games if usually larger in online casinos than it is in a landbased casino. It is common that online casinos feature well over 1 000 different games.
Can you trust online casinos?
Yes. Online casinos are regulated and offer fair play. There are some scam online casinos but most casinos are honest. It easy to find an honest casino by choosing a casino that is licensed in a trustworthy jurisdiction and that feature games from Major game developer such as NetEnt and Microgaming. These developers have strict guidelines that the casinos have to fulfil to be able to feature their games. The developers do not allow the casinos to tamper with the games and thereby guarantee fair play. You can find the RTP (Return to player) published for all games from leading developers. The RTP in online casinos is generally a lot higher than in regular casinos.
Examples of good trustworthy online casinos include MrGreen, WilliamHill, Bethard and Bet365. Bethard is my personal favourite due to its very live casino. Another reason to choose Bethard casino is that they feature a very large selection of games from a large number of different developers.
Most online casinos feature live casino games. These games are played at a real player with a real dealer. The dealer deals the cards and you can follow everything since the table is streamed to your computer. You can decide what you want to do. Live dealer casino works exactly like sitting at a casino table in a land-based casino.
Live casino games are less environmentally friendly than animated games since they require a dealer, lighting, cameras etc. but they still have a smaller carbon footprint than landbased play.
A green option
Playing in an online casino is a lot greener option than visiting a land-based casino. If you want to gamble than try doing so in an online casino. The environment and your wallet will thank you. With this said. The best option for your wallet is always to refrain from gambling completely. I do not recommend that you gamble, but if you want to do so, consider doing it in an online casino.
