I love the world of the not-to-distant future that we’re living in right now. Not only do we have technological marvels like the Toyota Yaris and SXSW Interactive, we have the unique joy that is online casinos.
In case you don’t know, online casinos are like regular casinos, except about one zillion times better. Imagine having all of the casino games at your fingertips, any time of the day or night. Imagine being able to play them on any device able to connect to the Internet! PC, Mac, laptop, netbook…even the iPad and iPhone are in on the game, as the best online casinos now offer a mobile version that features their most popular games.
The only thing that you need to keep in mind is that there are different rules for the US than there are for the rest of the world (but you’re used to that, right?). The UIGEA gave a lot of the international online gambling companies the willies, so to speak, so make sure that you’re playing an online casino USA if you’re in the USA (and if you’re not, you should still check the particular online casinos terms and conditions, because there are some countries that just don’t dig the whole gambling thing at all!).
I’m personally partial to online slots and baccarat, but you can also play blackjack, craps, roulette, video poker, or any number of other games — some old, some new, some only invented for this series of tubes that you’re currently using.
And if casino games just aren’t your thing, there is plenty of Internet gambling fun in other places; try online bingo, if you like chatting girlishly while you win money…or online sportsbooks, if you like chatting manly while you win money. And if you want to fly in the face of gender stereotypes (or you just prefer a little skill and multiplayer fun), try online poker — who knows, you could be the next WSOP champion!
