If you have a casino near to where you live, then you will have the choice of whether to play the slot machines there or play online. There are many people who do not have the choice and so play online because they have nowhere to go off line to play. If you do have a choice, however, you may wonder what to do.
There are pros and cons of both. You may prefer the atmosphere in a casino as you have other people there, can have a drink and there is the sound of money around you. Sometimes there are live bands playing in the background or other music. You may like the excuse to dress up nicey and make yourself up, ready to go out. However, you can have your own choice of music at home and a drink if you wish. You will not need to dress up or even get dressed if you do not want to and so it can be a lot more relaxing.
You may find that your local casino is only open in the evenings. If you play online, you have the opportunity to play day or night as it never shuts. This means that you can more easily fit playing around your work or other activities. You may also not feel like you have the energy to go out, but would still like to play a few games.
If you want to play with friends, you can all go to the casino together, but it might be easier to arrange a time to meet up online and play together there rather than having to all be at the same place. People are getting busier and so finding time to get together can be hard, especially if you do not live that close to each other.
Which you prefer is very personal. It depends what you like about the game and if it is the atmosphere of a casino, the getting dressed up and going out, handling the money or the noise that you like or whether t is just playing the game, which you can do at home.
If you play online slots, then you might be tempted to play on your phone and tablet when you are out and about as well as on your computer. It is wise being careful about where you play though.
Slots do not take lots of tactical thought and so it is easy to go through the motions when playing and not concentrate on anything else. If you are out and about, you could easily get distracted and not play the best that you can.
This may not sound that serious, as it is a game after all. However, if you are playing for money, then you do not want to waste it because you have been distracted. You would get very annoyed if you found that you could have won, but did not because you were distracted when you were playing. Therefore it might be better to play when you are at home, rather than when you are out and about.
It is also worth considering how you might feel if you had a big win and you were with friends and family, for example. You may regret having told them that you won straight away as you would not get a chance to decide whether you would want to tell them and consider whether you are going to give them any money or not out of your winnings. You may think you know how you will react, but unless it has happened to you, you will not know and you may be surprised.
If you really enjoy playing slots a lot of the time, then it could be a good idea to play a free to play game when you are out and about. Then when you are alone play a paid for game. There are plenty of places that offer free games and although they tend not to give out prizes, they can still be fun.
You may disagree with this, but it is a good idea to give it some serious thought, especially imagining how annoyed you might be if you missed the opportunity to win because you were distracted by your surroundings.
