At Springbok Casino we often use the words gambling and gaming interchangeably when we refer to the act of playing casino games. Are these terms really synonymous, or are there subtle differences between them that can affect how we enjoy and benefit from our favourite pastime?

As you okes very well know, we call a spade a shovel here at Springbok. Fact is, we’re an online casino and the best destinations for South Africans to enjoy top quality online gambling. There is a bit more to it though, and we’re here to clarify. In future, whenever we talk about gaming or gambling when playing our casino games, you’ll know exactly what we mean!

What is Gambling in the Strictest Sense?

Gambling is defined as the act of wagering money or something of value on an event with an uncertain outcome, with the primary intent of winning more money or material goods. It essentially involves three elements, which includes consideration, risk, and prize.

Consideration is the amount of money or value that the gambler puts at stake. Risk is the chance of losing the wager or getting a different outcome than expected. Prize is the potential reward that the gambler can win if the wager is successful.

Gambling is often associated with games of chance, such as roulette, blackjack, slots, and lotteries. These games have random outcomes that are determined by a device (such as a wheel, a card, some dice, or a machine) or by a draw (such as a lottery ticket). The gambler has no control over the outcome and relies on luck to win or lose.

What Constitutes “Gaming”?

Gaming, on the other hand, is defined as the act of playing games for entertainment, fun, or skill development. Gaming involves two or more players who interact with each other and with the game environment through rules, goals, challenges, and feedback. Gaming can be done online or offline, using various devices such as computers, consoles, mobile phones, or tablets.

Gaming is often associated with games of skill, such as chess, poker, trivia, and video games. These games have outcomes that are influenced by the players’ abilities, strategies, decisions, and actions. The players have some control over the outcome and rely on their skills to win or lose.

How Online Casino Games Have Bridged the Gap

Casino games have evolved so much as a result of technology that they’re on par with top video games on PCs and consoles. They’re not simply about gambling anymore… They offer exciting gameplay, with jaw-dropping visuals and effects, immersive soundtracks and narratives, and interactive features and bonuses. Casino games have become a form of entertainment that appeals to a wide range of players who enjoy both gambling and gaming.

The technology that has made this possible includes advanced software platforms, high-speed internet connections, sophisticated graphics engines, realistic animations and simulations, artificial intelligence algorithms, and random number generators. These technologies enable casino games to provide fair and random outcomes – while delivering stunning and engaging experiences to the players.

Gambling vs Gaming: The Verdict

In the end, comparing gaming as we used to think of it in the traditional sense to modern day online gambling is like comparing apples with apples. They are both forms of entertainment that offer fun, excitement, challenge… and reward. The only difference is that casino games give you the chance to win real money while you play.

Conversely, most console games, PC games and mobile games that offer ‘pure gaming’ have no financial incentives for the player. In fact, you quite often need to pay in order to progress in the game. Players could end up spending thousands of real bucks on in-game currencies to buy frivolous items like wraps, skins, weapons and battle or season passes... haibo!
