Nothing quite compares to the exclusive atmosphere, the feeling of decadence and the thrill that comes from gaming in a real casino. But there are times when you want to experience that feeling when you just don’t have time to get out of the house, much less rustle up your crew for a trip to the nearest casino. Still, through the wonders of modern technology there are a plethora of ways to enjoy a casino atmosphere and real live casino games from the comfort of your own home. In fact, you don’t even have to tear yourself away from your TV.
Here are some ways in which you can bring all the fun of the casino to you that are quick, easy and (so long as you’re over 18) completely legitimate.
Live Roulette on Channel 5
Followers of Channel 5’s late night gaming show Super Casino may remember that it closed down in December of last year. However, Channel 5’s Live Roulette has taken its place and still allows UK players to enjoy betting on live games with real presenters. If you want something with a little personality that feels like a cross between a TV show and a punt in your favourite Casino this is a good option for you. It airs on Channel 5 at midnight. So you have plenty of time to prepare your vodka martini.
Smart Live Casino
Sky customers with a love of Casino gaming will remember that Smart Live Casino brought the look and feel of a casino direct to their TV. Yet, while the TV channel was discontinued a few years back, the games can still be played online through the TV Roulette website. Which brings us to…
Access gaming websites through your Smart TV
Frustratingly, many of the TV channels and programs which TV gamers used to enjoy for their casino games have been discontinued. However, there are many secure online casinos which you might well be able to access through your TV giving you all the fun of your favourite live casino programmes but with greater interactivity. If your TV is a relatively recent model, there’s an excellent chance that it has a range of internet-enabled capabilities. While many use their Smart TVs to watch the latest shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime, they may not be aware that most smart TVs have a native web browser. This can be used to access all kinds of online content (pretty much whatever you can access on a computer or smartphone) giving you instant access to secure gaming websites like Come On Betting (which also has a mobile app for when you’re on the go).
Remember to gamble responsibly
Any of the above is a fun and exciting way to replicate the thrilling atmosphere of a casino from the comfort of your own home. However, this also increases the importance of gambling responsibly. It’s up to you to ensure that your gaming remains a fun hobby rather than an impediment to your medical and financial wellbeing. Support groups like GamCare provide a wealth of support for anyone who’s worried that their gaming might be getting out of control.
Remember you must be 18 years old or over to gamble in the UK.
