How Jackpot Capital Helps Gamers Avoid Some of the Pitfalls of Casino Gaming

The Wonderful World of Gaming after the Login

The Jackpot Casino login opens up a grand online gaming experience.  Jackpot Capital Online Casino offers hundreds of excellent, fun, and diverse, online casino games.   We offer many games of chance such as slots, roulette, and Banana Jones and games of skill such as video poker and blackjack.

We run many promotions that include bonuses and free spins.  Jackpot Capital also runs many slots tournaments with low to zero buy-in fees.

Gaming Online is Much More Manageable than Gaming on Land

One of the oddities of playing casino games at a land-based casino is the casino “looks” to be very big but is strictly limited by its dimensions.

As an online casino “located” in cyberspace, Jackpot Capital is functionally unlimited.  The large banks of terminals at a land-based casino are somewhat misleading since many terminals are duplicates.

At a land-based casino, the number of players who can play any given terminal game is limited to the number of terminals of that game while it is entirely unlimited at Jackpot Capital Online Casino.

Thus, land-based casinos may have many terminals but not nearly as many individual games as it seems.

At a Land-based Casino, Players Begin “in the Hole”

Because it costs substantial amounts of money to get to a land-based casino and to stay there for two or three nights, players at such casinos start very deeply in the red and generally spend their entire “vacations” trying to “get even”.

At Jackpot Capital and all other online casinos, there is no travel cost so gamers start out even and have no incentive to play beyond their physical and financial means to “get even”.

This is why we say that online casino gaming is much more manageable than land-based casino gambling.  Since an online casino is available on a 24/7 basis, there is no incentive to continue playing far beyond one’s physical or financial limits.

Are There Any Pitfalls to Online Casino Gaming?

There are pitfalls to almost every human activity so, yes, there are pitfalls involved in online casino gaming.  We spoke about setting time and monetary limits to gaming so either not setting such limits or exceeding them are pitfalls that some online gamers and many more land-based casino players fall into.

Play as Many Games as You Can

Since Jackpot Capital is available around the clock every day, there is really no reason for a gamer not to sample every game we have on offer.  At land-based casinos, most players stay at one or two games for the duration of their stay because they are in seat-hoarding mode.

There are no seats to hoard at Jackpot Capital so we encourage gamers to play as many games as they can over time.

Here are a few other “pitfalls” of playing casino games online.  You will quickly notice that these are pitfalls only in the sense that they involve not availing oneself of the many advantages of online casino gaming.

  1. Failing to play in our unlimited free play mode when playing a game for the first time.
  2. Failing to access our many bonuses and other promotions.
  3. Failing to read our articles which give gamers many tips and useful information.
  4. Failing to use the well-documented best strategy for blackjack and video poker.
  5. Failing to play classic games, especially in slots.
  6. Failing to take real vacations which are among the best benefits of online casino gaming wherein gamers incur no travel costs getting to the casino.
  7. Failing to use our excellent mobile gaming platform which allows gamers to play curled up comfortably and sensually on their sofa.

What are the Main Pitfalls of Land-based Casino Gaming?

Let’s start by contrasting the “pitfalls” listed of online casino gaming with the comparable real pitfalls of playing at land-based casinos.

Land-based casinos do not offer unlimited free play; land-based casinos do not offer bonuses and substantive promotions; land-based casinos do not offer free gaming tips; land-based casinos have very few classic games since for every terminal the casino brings in with a new game, it has to take out an equal number of terminals; the cost of travelling to a land-based casino will inevitably create a deficit in most gamers’ vacation budgets; and, the strangest pitfall of land-based casino gaming may be travelling to such a casino and ending up playing on the casino’s in-house mobile gaming platform!

Here are a few other pitfalls of gaming at a land-based casino:

Be Careful when Playing Blackjack and Video Poker

Land-based casinos have discovered ways to increase their profits in a way that many players don’t understand.  These ways involve subtly reducing payouts in various games.

In blackjack, many land-based casinos are now paying 6-5 for a blackjack which increases the house edge by a few percentage points.

In video poker, many land-based casinos are now paying 8 coins for a full house and 5 coins for a flush (this is called 8-5 video poker).  This also increases the house edge in video poker by a few percentage points.

Be Careful when Playing Slots and Roulette

Land-based casinos can get their game providers to calibrate slots to pay less than they pay out at Jackpot Capital and other online casinos.

In roulette, land-based casinos usually offer only American Roulette which has 0 and 00 which gives twice the house edge as European Roulette which has only one 0.

Be Careful when a Cocktail Waitress Offers You Free Alcohol

One drink will weaken any player’s cognitive skills.  This causes a lot of money to flow to the casino unnecessarily.

Be Aware that a Land-based Casino will Encourage Players to Continue Playing when they are Tired

There are no windows or clocks at land-based casinos.  Coupled with players’ tendency to play longer at these casinos, the inexorable result is much more gaming and gaming when the player is too tired to make good betting choices.

Land-based Casinos are THE ENTERTAINMENT

Here at Jackpot Capital, we see gaming as a form of entertainment.  Since it is likely that, in the long run, the house wins, we urge gamers to see gaming as an entertainment coat.  We encourage gamers to budget for gaming as they might budget for any other entertainment.  We also encourage gamers to see that the cost of playing the games of skill can be very small as the house edge is just 0.5%!

Thus, online gaming in itself is the entertainment.  At a land-based casino, the casino itself is the entertainment.  That leaves playing at a land-based casino as gambling, not gaming!  This is the ultimate pitfall in playing at a land-based casino: it is difficult to turn gambling into gaming on land while, online at Jackpot Capital, our purpose is to help gamers maintain gaming as gaming!
