The Dark Side of Casinos

Casino games have developed over the centuries as ways for people to relax, have fun, and test their luck. Traditional casinos have their allure, from Vegas to Monte Carlo, where people gather from all over the world to share their passion for gaming.But all of those players from all over the globe bring more with them than fancy clothes and wads of cash: they bring their germs. That’s right, the fact is that casinos are filled with germs.


Like any place where people gather—airports, train stations, hospitals, and so on—casinos are crawling with microorganisms that have the potential to cause sickness. Most casinos try their best to keep on top of things with cleaning crews and disinfectants, but you never know who has touched the cards, dice, slot lever, etc. before you did. And while you’re unlikely to catch anything worse than a cold at a gaming parlor, studies have shown that some pretty nasty viruses and bacteria do show up from time to time.


You can’t live your life in fear of sickness, but there is a way to enjoy the casino, for fun and for real money, without any of these risks: online gaming. When you play from the comfort of your own home or from just about anywhere on a mobile device, picking up a bug from someone is one more thing you don’t have to worry about (along with travel expenses, crowds, and getting out of your pajamas).
