Whether you’re totally new to online casinos or consider yourself a seasoned veteran, we’ve created this guide to online casinos to help you understand all you need to know about this exciting yet often confusing online world.
While gambling should always be fun (and hopefully profitable), there are some things you’ll want to know about before diving in, such as what the laws are that govern gambling in your country and how to pick the best online casinos. We’ve covered all that and more here.
If you’ve been playing for a while, there’s plenty here for you, too. Casino strategies and expert-level tips and tricks pages are listed below, so don’t assume you know it all already until you’ve checked those out. No guide to online casinos would be complete without those.
Whatever your situation is, you’ll find everything you need to know about online casinos here. Feel free to read the entire guide or skip straight to the section which is most relevant to you.
Choosing an Online Casino
Choosing an online casino is something you should take your time about. You don’t want to rush in and make a bad decision you’ll come to regret.
Unfortunately, not all online casinos are created equal, and there are both world-class, honest sites and rogue, dishonest ones. We’ve put together some in-depth topic pages which can help you get the crucial information you need before making a decision.
You might want to join more than one casino site and reap the rewards of all the extra bonuses and game choices that come with doing so. That’s always a possibility, and many online casino players do just that. There are pros and cons to doing so, and we’ve covered those and a lot more on the “joining multiple sites” page.
If you click “choosing the right casino” below, you’ll be taken to our expert-written guide on how to pick the right casino site. Our team has decades of experience in the industry, and there are some real information gems on this page. You can always read our in-depth casino reviews, but it’s best to become an expert yourself, and this page will help you do that.
Explaining how to pick a great casino is only one side of the coin, though. No complete guide to online casinos would be truthful without mentioning the other, more sinister side of things. That’s why we’ve also created a guide to spotting rogue casinos. If you’re interested in learning how to avoid getting your fingers burned and who some of the rogue operators are, this page is well worth a look. We’ll always be here to guide you, but it’s better if you can spot the rogues for yourself. Think it isn’t worth investing the time to learn this? What if we told you it could save you thousands of dollars and potentially endless stress by doing so?
To complement this, we’ve also created an online casino blacklist which you can bookmark/memorize as a reference point before signing up at any new casinos you’re interested in. Whatever you do, you don’t want to register at these sites, even if the welcome offers are tempting. To find out why check the “blacklist” page out below.
Why Online Casinos?
If you’ve been playing at online casinos for years, there’s a good chance that you can skip this section, although you might find some value in the various pages below. As the old saying goes, it’s when you think you know everything that you stop learning and growing!
Online casinos have lots of advantages over land-based casinos, but there are some drawbacks, too. We’ve written an in-depth guide to the differences between the two and what we feel the benefits and downsides are to each. We’ll say up front, though, that we feel online casinos have the edge overall. There’s no going back now, and land-based casinos are definitely feeling the pinch. You might think we’re biased since this is a guide to online casinos, but check the page out for yourself and see.
One of the best things about online casinos is the VIP/loyalty programs they offer. While you would have to be a serious high roller to get much in return at land-based casinos, online casinos tend to have a much lower barrier to entry, and so even if you only play casually, you can start benefiting in the form of extra bonus cash and free spins. We’ll show you how to pick the best casino VIP programs and the best ones offer on the “VIP programs” page below.
If you want to cut straight to the chase and play for some of the biggest jackpots on the web, check out the “jackpots” page below. We’ll tell you about some of the best progressive jackpot slots and point you in the direction of where to play them. These are the games which change financial destinies, and they’re well worth checking out.
Last but not least, the bonuses and promos available at online casinos are what really separates them from land-based ones and are one of the primary reasons online casinos are taking over. There are so many types that it can get confusing, though. We’ve created a guide to them just for you, and of course, there’s a list of the best casino bonuses currently available, selected by our expert team. Don’t miss this page if you like free casino cash.
Winning at Online Casinos
There are some people who will tell you that casino games are all down to luck and that there’s nothing you can do to alter the outcome. There’s an entire other camp, though, who swear blind that they’ve discovered the keys to unlimited wins. Who’s right? The answer is that it depends on which game we’re talking about. All casino games involve some degree of luck, but there are some skill-based ones which you can apply strategies to if you have the patience to learn them.
The pages listed below will take you through some of the things you need to understand to win casino games more often.
The page on random number generators will show you how casino games are powered and what determines the outcome.
The rest of the pages listed below are self-explanatory. They all lead to specific guides which can help you gain an edge over the house or at least reduce the edge the house has over you. It goes without saying that you won’t win every time no matter what you do, but these pages can definitely help you improve your chances.
Online Gambling Law
The internet has given rise to all sorts of interesting and difficult legal questions, such as which country a person should pay sales tax in when they make a purchase. The same goes for internet gambling – there are all kinds of national laws governing gambling, and many of them are so out of date that governments are scrambling to update them and make them relevant to the era of online gambling.
Yet these laws should never be ignored. They’re serious, and violating them can lead to undesirable consequences, to say the least. Don’t let that scare you off, though, because we’re here to guide you and keep you in Johnny Law’s good books. A serious guide to online casinos has to consider that, wouldn’t you say?
We have a team of experts who keep their fingers on the pulse of the online gambling industry, and we make it our business to stay informed on worldwide gambling laws. We’ve created in-depth guides to the important laws in each country, and we update these as soon as there are changes which could impact you.
