The King is playing poker in a Las Vegas casinoIf you are in the need of some entertainment, then travelling to Las Vegas is probably a good idea. But if you are interested in making money gambling, you need to optimize your odds of winning. Online casinos pay out a higher percentage than do Las Vegas casinos. This may seem surprising to you, but it's true. But why?

Simply, because online casinos costs are lower. An online casino will usually have a staff of 20 - 30 people, mainly involved in providing around the clock customer service and technical maintenance. They'll have a nice office, spend plenty on technology and graphic design, and have a few "suits." However, a Las Vegas casino has to spend massive amounts of money on their workers, comps, leasing of the property they are on, electricity costs, paying their entertainment, etc. For this reason, online casinos can afford to pay out more of the money that they take in, because their costs are simply lower.

Most online casinos have payouts in excess of 97%. Compared to a Las Vegas casino, there is no contest.

If you are suspicious of these high payouts, you don't have to be. Online casinos are stringently audited to make sure they pay out exactly what they say they do. The reputable online casinos are audited by a Big 5 accounting firm. Since competition is so fierce between online casinos, the last thing they would want to do is lie about their payouts %'s. If they did that, their reputations would be ruined.
