Written by Posted On Monday, 15 July 2019 00:29

It’s all over the news and internet. Online gambling is coming soon to a country/state/city near you. For a lot of closet recreational gamblers, that’s very good news. The ability for said recreational gamblers to come out of the shadows to play casino games and bet on sports without having to visit a land-based casino has been nothing short of a godsend.

If you have been waiting patiently for the right opportunity to start wagering on your favorite casino games or sports, the time to start doing so is right now. As long as you live in an area where online gambling is legal, you will likely have access to dozens if not hundreds of very good online casinos and sportsbooks like the action is fast and furious.

As you contemplate where and when to sign up and start gambling online, there are a few things you should consider when making your choices. If you don’t take time to make the right choice(s), it could have a profound effect on the enjoyment you get from your online gambling experience. With that in mind, we would like to offer the following suggestions to help you get maximum enjoyment out of your time spent gambling online.


The Best Online Casino Sites are the Safest Online Casino Sites

Personal and financial security should always be your number one consideration. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that there are a few rogue online casino operators out there on the internet. They lie in wait for the unsuspecting new online gambler who isn’t aware they exist. 

The truth is you can protect yourself. First, you never want to even consider an online casino that is not able to present proof of licensing from a top government agency. The bad ones can’t get licensing because they are unwilling to comply with the regulations set forth by the governing body. The top online casinos are always properly licensed and in compliance with top government agencies like the UK Gambling Commission, the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner or the Malta Gaming Authority. 

Another important facet of protecting yourself in an online gambling environment is making sure any online casino you have under consideration has the proper software safeguards in place. You don’t want rogue actors getting access to your personal financial information. At a minimum, you want to gamble with an online website that has proof of using 128-bit SSL encryption technology at a minimum, 256-bit would be better. Furthermore, you must limit your play to websites that offer proof of fairness certification from a top auditing firm like eCOGRA or TST. 


The Games Make It Fun

If you fancy yourself to be a good casino gambler, you no doubt have your favourite games. If you are more of a novice casino gambler, you might still be looking for the game or games that tickle your fancy. The truth is the games are what make online gambling fun.

Most online casinos offer table games, scratch cards, video poker, arcade-style games and video slots. Putting aside video slots for a moment, the other games differ very little from what a gambler would encounter in a land-based casino. There’s only so much that a software developer can do to spice up games like Blackjack, Craps, Baccarat or Roulette. They can devise variations that add a little excitement, but such efforts only result in minimal extra enjoyment.

Video slots are the games that attract online casino gamblers. Clearly, it easy to see that these are the games that top software developers like Microgaming, Betsoft, Netent and Play’n Go put most of its efforts. They are trying to create magic and excitement.

If you want to maximize your fun and potential return from playing slots, you’ll want to select online casinos that offer the top online slot games from multiple software providers. If you can find a site that offers games from any combination of the aforementioned software developers, you will be heading in the right direction.

As a side note, online casinos will try to tempt you with amazing bonus offers. They look good on the outside, but a peek inside might tell a different story. The only good bonuses are the ones that offer decent monetary value without overly restrictive terms and conditions. Don’t expect too much from bonus offers. 

Good luck and have fun!
