Online Casino Games - Live Casino Games

There are always people that will prefer to play in live casinos as opposed to real money online casinos. That’s perfectly fine as we all have our preferences. However, there are several casino games that are better to play online as opposed to live casinos. Today, we will look at the top 5 casino games that are better to play online.

Online Slots

Let’s get the most obvious choice out of the way. Online slot games are much better online than they will ever be in live casinos. The reason is that slots at live casinos have much lower RTPs than online casinos. How low? There are some games out there with an RTP as low as 70%. You read that right. Lottery ticket scratchers are a better gamble than some live slot games.

The average RTP of land-based online slot games ranges from 70% to around 90%. If you’re particularly lucky, you may find slots with an RTP of 92%. However, that is the max. Most online casinos have slots starting at 94%. For online slots, a 94% RTP is considered the same as playing a 70% RTP live slot game.

The best online casinos offer RTPs of 95% or higher. If you can find games of 96% or better, those are the games to shoot for.

Bingo

We don’t talk a lot about bingo on this site, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love the game. Bingo games are popular because they are easy to play and are lower in average investment than other table games. They also take longer to play, which means you get more play for your money. We know what some of you are thinking. Online bingo is a bit faster-paced than live bing. However, there are a couple of advantages to playing online.

Pesca Bingo Ignition Casino

First, you can play many different forms of bingo. Most land-based casinos only offer one or two forms of bingo. Also, you will be able to play for jackpots more often. Finally, the average price of a single bingo card is much lower than in live games. If you took $10 to a live bingo game, you won’t play very long. You can get a lot more play online as there are games with cards starting as low as a penny.

Keno

Keno is the perfect example of why you should play at online casinos. The game is a lottery-style game where you select up to 20 numbers (depending on the game variant). You are paid off based on how many of your numbers are drawn.

Live casinos offer Keno because it has a significant house edge. Some games give the casino a 35% house edge. Online Keno games offer a much lower house edge, depending on the variant. The top house edge you’ll find is 20%, but on average the house edge is around 5%. This is still higher than many table games like blackjack, but significantly better than the live version of Keno.

Online Poker

If you play poker, then you’re familiar with how much the game costs in land-based casinos. First, there’s the rake taken at the table during each hand. Next, there are tournament fees for poker tournaments. Also, you usually have to invest a lot more per session than other table games.

Online Poker Games

Online poker gives you a much cheaper version of the game. Table limits start as low as .01-.02 blinds and some poker rooms offer tournaments starting at just a few cents. Table rake and tournament fees are also significantly lower than in live poker rooms.

Next, game selection will be much better as you’ll have dozens of tables running at once. Most poker rooms offer multiple versions of poker to play, not just Texas Hold’em. Finally, there are plenty of poker tournaments to play each day, most of which have fields larger than the best live casino tournaments.

Scratch Cards

This last one may or may not be available at live casinos based on your location. Some live casinos offer scratch tickets, similar to what you see offered by some lotteries. You scratch off an area to see if you’ve won a prize.

While these tickets can award big prizes, they generally have a low RTP, sometimes as low as 70%. Generally, they have an RTP of around 80%. For online scratch cards, you will generally find RTPs in the 90 to 95% range. In some cases, you can find cards with an RTP up to 97%. Also, online scratch cards cost less than in live casinos.
