About Payout Percentages

To avoid any unfair play, online casinos are required to undergo certain checks to ensure that they are paying out a fair percentage of the time on luck-based games like slot machines. Virtual or otherwise, a casino has a duty to ensure that customers are permitted a certain likelihood of winning. This does not by any stretch of the imagination mean that casinos are obliged to ensure that the chance of the house and the player winning are even, but simply that they are not skewered in favour of the house but an absurd amount. There are two major companies Continue Reading →

Download Vs. No Download Casinos

There are two key variants when gambling online and choosing between various websites. One is websites that require you to download a piece of software in order to play, and the other is sites which use Flash, Java and so forth to allow instant gratification with no time or effort to download anything. No download casinos can be tempting. They are an opportunity for a quick fix, playable from any laptop without the need to bog down the harddrive with excessive downloads. Once you are tired of a site you can simply close it down, without having to uninstall anything. Continue Reading →

Tips Before Getting Started

As you will find once you step foot into any real life casino, all gambling institutions have a responsibility to promote sensible gambling, as the pamphlets and handouts will testify. However, casinos (both physical and online) are a business, and it is in their best interest to take as much money from you as possible. Because of this it is essential that you lay down some golden rules before you begin playing. Firstly, never gamble money that you can’t afford to lose. If you have a spare $20 and feel like playing some blackjack, go for it. But if you Continue Reading →

About Licensed Online Casinos

It is vital that any player, no matter how often they gamble or how much they put at stake, always does so through a recognised, trusted and licensed casino. Direct reviews of websites are a very compelling source of information in regards to which sites are the safest, but if a site is unlicensed or happens to be breaking a law, there is no way you should put a penny of your money into that company. The internet is awash with scams just looking to capitalize on vulnerable people desperate to make a quick buck. The infamous scams where people Continue Reading →

Playing for Free at Casinos

Playing for free can be a great way to initiate yourself to a new game without risking any money, but it is important to remember that play money is no substitute for the real thing. Yes, playing for free is perhaps the perfect way to become familiar with the rules and common outcomes in any given casino game, but anybody who thinks their success in play money will be instantly transferrable to real money games will quickly find they are mistaken. To help understand the difference, let’s take a couple of quick examples. Some sites offer play money on roulette. Continue Reading →

Playing for Real Money

Playing for real money is what the majority of online gamblers spend their time doing. It is important to remember the difference between playing for real money and play money – see our section on “Playing for Free at Casinos” for more information on play money. There are distinct differences between playing for real money at a live casino and playing online. One of these differences is that when playing online, people tend to lose track of how much they are spending. Because there is no physical act of handing over cash, players sometimes find themselves spending more than they Continue Reading →

History of Online Casinos

As years have gone by and technology has developed at an awe-inspiring rate, people have become impatient and much more accustomed to being able to access everything from their phones, laptops and tablets. Anything from getting a cab to ordering food directly to your door can now be done without uttering a single word, as companies strive to allow people to consume products and services from the comfort of their own home. The gambling world is no exception. A variety of online casinos, or virtual casinos, have sprung up in recent years and are becoming increasingly popular and, with that Continue Reading →

eCheck

An eCheck does exactly what it says on the tin. It provides you with the electronic equivalent of a common check, or cheque. In an online world that is moving at a faster pace than ever, where electronic transfers are less an option and increasingly an inevitability, some people prefer the balance of old and new that an eCheck offers. As a buyer, there are certainly advantages to using an eCheck. For one thing, the funds normally take 3-4 working days to fully transfer into the recipient’s account. During these 3-4 days you are still able to accumulate interest as Continue Reading →

Ukash

Ukash is not dissimilar to many of its rival companies such as Skrill and Neteller, but is favoured by many users due to its combination of old and new; whilst transfers are all completed electronically, customers of Ukash can exchange physical cash in exchange for a code that can be redeemed as electronic money. This year, for the third time in a row, Ukash received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise. This is indicative of the growing trend to use outlets such as Ukash to transfer money, as people are becoming more familiar with and trustworthy of electronic wallets and online Continue Reading →

Click2Pay

Click2Pay is a variation of electronic wallet that is prioritized as a source for quick, relatively simple transfers online. Users are able to link their bank account directly to their Click2Pay account to make for quicker and smoother transactions should they need to deposit in a hurry. Click2Pay is predominantly used by Russian customers, but it is in good standing on a worldwide scale. The company ceased trading in the US, as did more or less all fellow competitors, several years ago due to the emergence of certain laws dictating that then-procedures were illegal and that members of the US Continue Reading →
