Many people love getting away to Las Vegas for a weekend. Checking out the Celine Dion show, staying at Caesar's Palace and eating at the buffet are all part of the Las Vegas experience. However, if you are just looking for a place to play slots, you might want to consider playing online, as you will probably be impressed by the quality of the games.

One of the biggest advantages to playing slots online is that you can play from home. At casinos, you have to deal with people trying to steal your machines and the noise associated with a Las Vegas casino. Some people enjoy that; however, if you like to play in peace and quiet, then online is the place to go. At an online casino, you can play at 4 am in your pajamas while eating an ice cream sundae, and nobody will bother you.

Also, the odds of winning are slightly better online, since the costs involved in running an online casino are lower than the costs involved in running a regular casino. Online casinos can transfer this cost savings onto their customers, by increasing the amount of bonuses and increasing the amount of the payouts. You might say, yeah right, they are going to keep every dime that they possibly can, but not so; the online casino industry is so competitive that many millions of dollars are spent trying to lure customers to their web sites.

Lastly, a big advantage of playing online is that you don't have to pay additional money just to play. For instance, if you played in Vegas, you would have to pay for the airline ticket, cost of the hotel, etc., plus you would only be able to play for a few days a year, unless you actually lived in Vegas. With online playing, you can play 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
