Online Casinos


Online casinos are a phenomenon that usually shows up in your email box as spam. I rarely read it since I've never been much of a gambler. But, I do go to the brick and mortar casinos in nearby Biloxi, MS (about an hours drive from my area). I've gone to the black jack tables, poker games, and slot machines. I mostly go for the food that is served 24/7. I have never really been interested in the online casinos because I missed that atmosphere you can only get in the casinos in Vegas, Atlantic City and Biloxi. But, one thing I do like about the online casinos are the slot machines.

I enjoy the slots at online casinos whenever I have the time. I especially like the arcade games. There are some online casinos that have been around a long time. By a long time, I mean five years or more. In the online world, that is relative to the brick and mortar casinos existence in 20 years or more. Vegas Red, for example, is celebrating its 6th year in existence. That makes them credible in my estimation. I have checked out this particular web site. They have all the major games you can find in real world of casinos.

Looking at the main page of Vegas Red, they show they have all the games the gambler in you would want. But, honestly, the one game they have that appeals to me most, is the roulette wheel. Now, if I'm going to really lay down some money, that is what I most likely would do. It's just something magical about the roulette wheel. As I said, I'm not much for gambling. But, I do enjoy watching others play the roulette wheel. I've seen people win a lot of money playing the roulette. I've watched a few lose quite a bit of money playing the roulette wheel.

One thing that needs to be mentioned about gambling; it is addictive. Like any addiction, it can ruin your life if you allow it to do so. Now, this holds true for both online casinos and the brick and mortar variety. I know quite a few people who are gambling addicts. I don't believe I know any who are addicted to online gambling. But, that doesn't mean there aren't some out there. Their addiction is just as bad as those who frequent dog tracks, casinos or even participate in state lotteries. One thing I like about Vegas Red is that they have a link to "responsible gambling" at the bottom of their main page of the web site. Personally, I think it should be at the top. But, each person who participates in this online activity should be responsible for his or her own actions. Have fun with the online casinos (and other online gambling sites). But, just remember they are there to make money.
