An online casino is a virtual version of a traditional in-person casino where you wager real money, play online gambling games, and can rack up the same big winnings. Also known as an Internet casino or virtual casino, these online platforms host many of the same games you find in traditional casinos, including slots, roulette, blackjack, craps, poker, and video poker.
