The generation of Millennial’s not only makes up 23% of the American population, but it’s also the largest generation with 22 million people over the previous Baby Boomer generation. This generation is coming of age to do many things and one of those things is gambling. They say that this is the generation that will change the course of just about everything. Sometimes, the group is known for being more frugal with money and more conservative. On the other hand, some find those within this age group to be more free and often times, that leads to spending more. At any rate, those who make up a part of this group are far different from the generations before them. Most of the time you’d find one of the Millennial age group, connecting with friends. Whether in person or online, they always seem to have a conversation going on somewhere.
When it comes to casinos, there are a few points which keep Millennial’s away. This can be bad for business and could be a contributing factor as to why some of the land based casinos find themselves circling the drain (mainly in Atlantic City.) One of the newest ways to get into some gambling action caters to the way Millenials not only like to spend their time, but how they think as well. Online casinos have been around since the late 90’s but it wasn’t until most recently that players were catching on.
So what are online casinos exactly? They’re a fun way to play casino games for real money. The games can be reached from just about anywhere in the United States that has an internet or WiFi connection. The online casinos for the most part are in no way associated with the land based casinos. This is an option that is available to players in the USA and beyond. Often times, it is the bridge to the gap in which players who are 18 and cannot play at a casino near them locally since most casinos are for those who are 21 and older.
Social night or a Quiet night in - Unwinding from the work week is sometimes the most rewarding part of the entire week and finding something that really takes a person’s mind off of working can be quite tough. Not ready to go out with friends? Online casinos can be used from home on a tablet, smart phone or computer. The beauty of this is that a casino player can still invite friends over for drinks. They can socialize among one another while playing fun slots and table games.
No need to feel intimidated by older, more seasoned gamblers - As of right now, there are very few USA casino floors that cater to younger players. Aside from a handful in Las Vegas, for the most part players will sit alongside much older and seasoned gamblers. For some, this can be intimidating and may lead to the player walking in one door and out the other. When playing from home, there is no need to feel insecure as no one is looking over your shoulder at your betting choices.
The game selections are much more modernized - USA online casino players will find modernized games. These replicate more of a video game style than the ones found in land based casinos. Needing some social interaction? Some of the table games will even come with a live dealer which in some cases, have been phased out completely in land based casinos. The games now in online casinos are made with 3D graphics and exciting bonus rounds that allow the player to control their own luck.
Tight on cash - there’s a coupon for that - Like with shopping online, players can use a wide variety of different coupon codes to score extra cash to play with. Of course, they will need to make deposits with their own money, but the coupon codes will help the players to be at the casino, on the games for longer periods of time without emptying their bank account like they would during a night out with friends.
The atmosphere is what you make it - This is a big perk when it comes to players. They will have the ability to make the atmosphere whatever they would like it to be. They can mimic a land based casino with having a cigarette or they can choose not to. Often times this comes as a major perk to those who choose not to smoke but want to play casino games and partake in the thrills of playing for real money.
