|The Megabucks slot machine at Harrah's Shreveport Casino & Hotel has blown away any doubt that the online casinos have reached the mega-jackpots status that Land-based casinos are famous for. |
This December the casino has already given away over $6.4 million to two Megabucks jackpot winners. Comparing that to online wins which barely top $1 million this month, it's clear that online gamblers don't get the value per pull that that you do land-side in places like Las Vegas.
However, if you compare the costs of flights, hotel rooms, eating out and entertainment, the Internet's instant living room casino still offers a lower risk flutter for most players.
Is expected that within the next five years, Internet casino jackpots will at least match the amounts won off-line. However, what is untold is the result of bricks and mortar U.S. casinos going online, linking their progressive off-line games to the Internet.
