If you’re a lover of gambling and you want to go to a bricks and mortar casino to have fun, then going to Las Vegas is the dream. With all of the flashing lights, the sound of the clinking coins falling from the slot machine and the cheers from the roulette table, there’s nothing quite like the sounds, smells, sights and excitement of a casino in Vegas. But sometimes, you might be stuck in the city. Whether you’ve got work or familial commitments or you just don’t quite have the funds for a flight and a few days in Vegas, sometimes you just can’t quite make it. But just because you’re stuck in the city, doesn’t mean you can’t go to Vegas.

There has been a huge surge in the appearance of online casinos in recent years, and you can easily get the Vegas feel with these mobile apps. Online casinos not only give you the games that you love to play in a bricks and mortar casino, they also give you the whole Vegas experience with a huge range of sounds, colours and animations that really bring the games to life. You can experience the same excitement that you would feel in Vegas, from the comfort of your home, or while you’re on the morning commute.

Many online casinos also offer a live dealer experience with some of their games such as poker and blackjack, in order to create a truly immersive experience for the players. In addition to live dealer games, there are plenty of video slots that probably work a lot better online than they would in any bricks and mortar casino, by supporting better graphics and animations. You can also take part in a multitude of tournaments on an online casino, where you can play against other people that are also playing on the site. These tournaments not only cover table games like poker and blackjack, but you can also take part in slots tournaments, giving you the chance to win real money – even if you’re just using a free spin.

There a huge number of promotions that you can also take advantage of on an online casino such as money back on your first deposit, and free spins. Some casinos even offer monthly promotions giving you a chance to win big either on a jackpot, or a prize such as a free cruise.

Online casinos are a fantastic way to experience a huge selection of different games, while still feeling as though you are in Vegas, wherever you are in the city. Many online casinos are operable on mobile phones and there are plenty of online casinos that have their own apps. All you have to do is simply sign up, put down your first deposit and start playing, or simply play on a demo so you don’t even have to put money down first. You never know, you might even get exceptionally lucky and hit a jackpot by simply using free spins!

Once you start playing online casinos, you may even find that you don’t actually need to head to Vegas, or you can use them to practice before you go. With a huge selection of online casinos and a number of apps to choose from, you can still feel like you’re in Vegas even if you’re stuck in the city.
