Online Casinos and Where to Start

Step 1 Finding a casino that you like and can trust.

The most important and often overlooked step in safe and successful online casino gambling is finding the right casino and this means more than big bonuses and a flashy website. Big bonuses are great but the single most important step is finding a casino that you can trust. There are many, many casinos out there and it can seem like a daunting task but there are several things that you can do to help keep yourself safe. The first thing to do is to look for a casino that has an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate. SSL provides a secure, encrypted connection between your web browser, such as Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer and a website allowing the secure transmission of your private information online. Secondly, you might look for a seal of approval from a non-profit organization such as eCOGRA ( e-Commerce and Online Gaming Registration and Assurance.) A casino without a seal of approval might be secure but a casino with a seal of approval is much more likely to provide you with a safe gaming environment. Lastly you should do an internet search for problems with the casino you are thinking of joining. These three steps will help to put you on the road to hours of safe and secure online gaming.

Step 2 After you find a casino you must Open an Account

Once you have found a safe and secure online casino that has an SSL certificate, maybe a seal of approval and a long history of fair dealing with it’s customers, to begin playing you must open an account. This is very similar to opening an online account at any type of business. You will need an account name and password. In addittion you will have to provide personal information to help the casino identify you and keep your account, and therefore your money, separate from all the other players. It will also be used to pay out your winnings and any of the bonuses to you that online casinos regularly offer.

Step 3 Once you are ready make a deposit and play.

Once you have opened an account you have several options. The first choice is Flash or Download casinos. Most casinos offer both and if you follow the link we will explain the basics to you. Secondly you must choose to play for fun or for real money. Many online casinos offer areas where you can play for fun without risking any real money. You won’t win any real money of course, but these areas are great places to hone your skills and familiarize yourself with the games that your chosen casino offers. Or if you know the rules and the basics of playing you can go directly to the real money rooms. You start at the cashier section and follow the instructions to make a deposit to your new casino account. Most casinos accept various methods of deposit. The most popular are PayPal, credit cards, eWallets, wire transfers and others. Almost all casinos will offer bonuses to first time customers, some a larger percentage of your deposit than others so take advantage.

So those are the basics. 1 Find the right casino. 2 Set up an account. 3 Make a deposit and start to play! It’s not difficult to get started and modern technology makes it available 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
