The internet is completely filled with a multitude of online casinos. But with so much choice how do you know which one is the best for you?
There are a number of ways to decide, here are just a few.
Research, research, research. If you find a casino you like the look of then type it into one of the major search engines and see what you get. If it’s a big name then there should be several reviews for you to look through and assess – try looking for independent reviews or get on some forums to discuss what people are saying. A good rule of thumb is if you’ve heard of the casino before you start looking, and not because of bad things, then they are probably one of the more reputable casinos.
A good indicator is to check how many payment methods they accept. The more the better, if they only accept bank transfers then stay away. The majority of the online wallets (moneybookers, PayPal etc.) are reputable ways to transfer your funds in and out of a casino.
Take a look at the games on offer – most casinos will offer you the chance to play for free before signing up. Have a look at what’s on offer and if they suit the style and methods you are planning to apply.
Check out the offers for signing up bonuses. Some offer good bonuses some offer great bonuses. However, make sure that you check the small print. Some will require you to make 100 or so bets before you can claim your bonus others will add other ways to make it very difficult for you to claim what appears to be yours. And remember the old adage ‘If it seems too good to be true then it probably is.
So you’ve chosen your casino now what? The casino is full of ways to gamble with your money some ways can be very profitable and some ways you might as well just throw your money away. The bets to look out for are bets that give the house a high advantage. Below are a list bets that you should avoid at all costs in any casino, online or on land.
Unless you are counting cards (do not do this whilst playing online) and know the odds of the dealer making a blackjack never take insurance. When you take insurance the house has a huge advantage so it is not a wise idea.
Never bet on a tie. The odds of a tie are not favourable at all and are not even worth a flutter, avoid at all costs. Some people will tell you that ties often repeat close after each other, this is not the case, just play your own game.
Some methods can be reasonably effective in roulette, depending on the table limits and the minimum bet. Avoid single number bets unless you have the enough money to place the same bet 36+ times in a row, not the most enjoyable way to play either.
