The popularity of online casinos

The online casino is getting wide patronage from the people. You can approximate the extent of popularity of the online casino by the sheer number of online casino sites on the web which is an exorbitant figure of 27 million. When the first online casino came into being the wagered amount was $17 million. By the year 2000 the wagering amount grew to $3 billion. In tune with the online casino the gambling advertisements have also expanded its business becoming the fifth largest among all the advertisers in the internet.

The modes of play

The online casino offers two modes to the players. They can download the software provided by the online casino service provider or can play directly with the interface of the game pages of the online casino sites. Playing directly at the interface of the online casino page has a potential risk of virus attack from the web into your computer which may cause much harm. You may have to perform many business activities online or have to keep the deadline promises of your clients which will be greatly disturbed when your computer system gets disrupted by the virus attack. So if you opt for playing directly at the casino online site you have to load reputed antivirus software and get it updated without fail. Virus software is being constantly upgraded in order to evade the antivirus software. Hence it is very important to get your antivirus updated regularly. This problem is avoided by downloading the game software. In this mode the pace of the game is also quite fast and enjoyment from the game is much satisfying.

The promotional efforts of online casinos

The online casinos offer various modes of incentive to their players. They also offer the facility to play for free in order to get the new players accustomed to the games of gambling. With a view to attract the new players they have bonus schemes such as free bonus. The players are required to deposit some money in the account registered with the site to which the free bonus gets added up. You cannot cash it but get the provision to wager for free. In some sites the free bonus amount is connected to the deposit amount by fixing it as a percentage of the deposit amount. This is done to encourage the moneyed players to deposit more money so that the online casino sites are benefitted.
