The Lazy Gambler plays in all kinds of different casinos. Three main types of casinos are:
- Online Casinos
- Mobile Casinos
- Land Based Casinos
I’m going over the three main types in more depth on this page. The information includes the similarities and differences between the three types of casinos.
As new casinos are reviewed on the site, you can find links to them on this page. You can find literally thousands of casinos when you combine online casinos, mobile casinos, and land based casinos. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get them all reviewed, but you can keep checking back here to find new casino reviews.
Online casinos are available just about anywhere in the world where you can find an internet connection. Every country in the world has different laws and rules and regulations about online gambling, and any regions and states have their own rules.
It can be quite confusing, especially if you listen to or watch the media coverage which is often wrong, to figure out where it’s ok to play online and where it isn’t. To make matters more confusing, some places don’t have laws that specifically deal with online casinos.
I don’t offer legal advice, so you need to do your own research if there’s any doubt about the legality of online gambling where you live. I’ve always played online wherever I could safely move money into and out of the casino. If an online casino is safe and I can make a deposit I play there.
In some countries, like the US, no player has been charged for gambling online, but there have been people who own online casinos get in trouble in some states. Though the law doesn’t specifically say this, it seems like in the US they’re not interested in the people who actually gamble online, they’re only interested in the owners of the online casinos.
Of course, in the US some states are starting to legalize and regulate online gambling. You can play regulated online poker in some states, like Las Vegas and New Jersey, and you can play regulated online casinos in some places.
Mobile casinos are somewhat like online casinos, but they’re designed to be played on mobile devices, like an Android phone or iPhone. You can also play mobile casinos on many tablets.
The main downside to most mobile casinos is the limited number of games. Some online casinos have hundreds of games including slot machines, while most mobile casinos have far fewer games.
Slots are the most popular mobile casino games, but some places offer video poker and table games like blackjack. You can even play mobile poker at some online poker rooms. Popular online sportsbooks also offer apps and mobile friendly sites for sports bettors on the go.
Land Based Casinos
A land based casino is basically any casino where you can walk in and gamble. They’re located throughout the United States and in many other countries.
Las Vegas is the world’s gambling capital, and the city has dozens of casinos. The city also has poker rooms and sportsbooks, with many of both of these inside larger casinos.
- United States Casinos
- UK Casinos
- Australian Casinos
- South American Casinos
- Canadian Casinos
- Mexico Casinos
Another type of casino is a hybrid of an online casino and a land based casino. These are called live dealer casinos.
Live Dealer Casinos
A live dealer uses a real person dealing in front of a camera of some sort with the video being live streamed over the internet. Players set up an account at an online casino live dealer site and play the game the dealer is running from their computer.
Blackjack is the most popular live dealer game, but you can also play live dealer roulette and a few other games. Live dealer online casino games are kind of neat, but they aren’t as popular as I thought they’d be when they were firs introduced.
One advantage of playing at an online casino is that you can play most games faster than you can in a land based casino. The live dealer games play slower, like land based casino games, so this may be why live dealer games aren’t more popular.
