How to Get the Most Out of Your New Player Welcome Bonus
casino blog
23 June 2016

To really get the most out of your new player welcome bonus at any fully licensed online casino, we recommend that you start by reading through the bonus terms and conditions before even accepting your bonus. The T’s & C’s will tell you everything you need to know about the bonus offer.

One of the things that many players don’t seem to understand is a policy known as the wagering requirement (also often referred to as the playthrough requirement). This is something that you generally cannot avoid when accepting an online casino bonus and the wagering requirements have to be completed before you can start the withdrawal process. The wagering requirement is basically the amount of cash that you need to wager before you can withdraw any of your bonus winnings.

Top Casino Promotions Worth Taking Advantage of
casino blog
19 June 2015

There are literally hundreds of different online casino promotions available for online casino players today, but some of these promos are far more worthwhile than others. The worst online casino promotions are the ones that come with steep wagering requirements when you have to wagering upwards of 40x times the bonus amount before you can withdraw. It’s better to decline these bonuses and wait for one to come along that has lower wagering requirements.

casino blog
01 June 2015

There are lots of perfectly secure e-wallets available for online gamblers today and most online casinos today accept a wide range of these effective online payment solutions. e-Wallets are also often referred to as e-payment solutions or web wallets and they generally allow you to deposit AND withdraw to and from your favourite online casino.

Some of the best e-Wallets include NETELLER, Skrill and PayPal, but not all players have access to these e-Wallets. Depending on which country you are based in will determine exactly which e-Wallets are actually available to you and the best way to find out whether players from your country can use a certain e-wallet or not would be to contact the customer support at the casino and ask them, or contact the actual e-wallet customer services department directly and ask them.

Is Slots Magic any Better than Jackpot Party Casino?
casino blog
27 March 2015

It’s been just over one year since Jackpot Party Casino changed hands and rebranded to Slots Magic. In fact the official transition happened on February 18th 2014 when Jackpot Party Casino (jackpotparty.com) stopped trading under this name. A company called SkillOnNet (aka SON) which also specialises in the development of online casino games basically came in and took over the reins.

Players have often asked “Is Slots Magic any better than Jackpot Party Casino?” Well, the short answer is yes. It is definitely worth visiting. It is packed with even more promotional offers and it has loads more games. Players also have the option of being able to play on the games either instantly in their browser or from within the SkillOnNet download client. It may have taken some registered members of the old Jackpot Party Casino a few weeks to get used to the new site, like us, but we reckon that most players will be happy with how the new site has turned out.

What are the Best Microgaming Casinos for UK Players
casino blog
18 March 2015

The number of Microgaming casinos accessible to UK players was dramatically reduced after new UK online gaming legislation was introduced to towards the end of 2014. Prior to this new legislation, UK players could visit hundreds of different Microgaming powered casinos and these gambling portals were licensed in one of several major jurisdictions around the world. To visit an online casino today, it also needs to be licensed by the UK Gambling Commission.

Unfortunately not all operators wanted to comply with the new legislation and this meant that they would avoid paying huge taxes each year, but it also meant that these operators would not be able to aim their business towards the UK market. In February 2015, there are hundreds of Microgaming casinos that are no longer accepting real cash wagers from UK players which previously did. Some of the operators of these casinos have applied for UK licenses, but others have not applied and are probably not likely to.

How to Really Maximise Your Online Casino Bonuses and Wagering Requirements Explained
casino blog
18 February 2015

There are several things that you can do to really maximise your bonus, but there is still no guarantee that you will win from your bonus cash. This page will take a look at how you can maximise most matching deposit bonuses. Let’s start by taking a look at what happens when you accept a 100% matching deposit worth up to £200 (or equivalent currency) with a 20x wagering requirement attached to it.

This means that you can deposit up to a maximum of £200. The casino will then match your deposit pound-for-pound and you will end up with a total of £400 to play with (your initial £200 deposit + £200 in bonus cash). This bonus cash should instantly appear in your account as soon as you have made a deposit. If you deposit, for example, £300 or more, the casino will still only match your deposit by up to £200, so never deposit more than you need to when claiming this kind of deposit bonus, because you won’t get any extra bonus cash in return.

How can you test the customer service at an online casino before you play
casino blog
07 April 2014

One way of checking whether or not the online casino that you are considering joining can be trusted or not is to check if their customer service is helpful and efficient. If they are not very helpful to begin with, this is not a good sign for the future.

Prior to signing up and registering a real cash account at one of the many online casinos, players can test the water by contacting the customer service and asking a few questions. One way of contacting them is by using the Live Chat feature, but not all online casinos have this option. If a casino doesn’t have a Live Chat feature, they will definitely have telephone support and either an email address to contact them on or an online email entry form to fill out. However, most of the reputable casinos do have Live Chat. Some of the online casinos may only grant access to their live chat feature to registered members only.

casino blog
03 August 2013

Most fully licensed online casinos today are monitored by reputable and independent organisations and one of the things these auditors monitor is the payout percentage rate, which is otherwise known as the Return to Player (RTP) rate.  

Each game will have its own payout percentage rate and the casino itself will also have an average payout percentage rate. This info can generally be found somewhere on the homepage, plus most of today’s online casino reviews also tend to reveal this information. Many auditors calculate this information on a monthly basis. For example, you can visit the eCOGRA website and view each casino’s payout certificates which date back months, if not years.

At some point in your life you may have to contact the customer support at an online casino and this support can often be more helpful than it is at other times. This lack of consistency can therefore be quite frustrating. The most common support methods available today for players includes email support, telephone support and live chat support and some operators also now provide 24 hour support via Skype.

The actual method of support that you decide to use when attempting to contact the casino should really be determined by the type of issue you have. For example you could be encountering a technical issue which may need instant attention. Alternatively you may want to lodge a complaint, or you may just have a general query which is less urgent. Whatever your reason for contacting the support may be, you should find that most of today’s reputable gambling portals will provide you with more than satisfactory support.

casino blog

This article refers back to just before Christmas 2012 when three fully licensed online casinos all recorded having payout reports which exceeded 100%. Cinema Casino, 777 Dragon Casino and Casino Mate are all owned by a trusted online casino group called Vegas Partner Lounge.

This is a responsible operator which owns several other trusted brands such as River Nile Casino, Casino UK, Crazy Vegas Online Casino, Golden Riviera Casino, Maple Casino and Sun Vegas Casino.

A Guide to Online Slots Tournaments
casino blog
24 June 2013

A slot tournament (or online slot tourney) is an event where several different players get to compete against one another for real cash prizes. Not everyone who enters into the tournament will receive a share of the prize pool because it is usually divided up amongst the players who achieve the most points throughout the duration of the tourney.

For example, if 100 people enter into an online slot tournament, there may only be perhaps 10 or even 20 paid positions, with the top two or three people earning the lions share. There are also some online slots tournaments which only have for example six entrants. These smaller, sit ‘n go slot tourneys have a double-up payout structure, which means that if the tournament costs you $10 to enter, the top three players (out of the six that entered) will each end up with a total of $20.

Here Are Reasons Why You Should Use Your iPad for Online Casino Games
casino blog
17 May 2013

Since its introduction into the market, the iPad has caught people’s imagination. Today, over 16 million people own iPads and this has led to the development of many apps that make the iPad extremely flexible and versatile, so that people can use it for many purposes.

The popularity of the iPad also has helped online casinos significantly, as people using iPads can access the Internet, which allows them to play their favorite casino games anywhere and anytime. The convenience of using an iPad to connect to the Internet anywhere is perhaps the reason for this. In addition, the touch screen of the device helps to simplify games, giving players the freedom to play the games they are interested in.

Important Considerations When Selecting the Right Online Casino
casino blog
15 May 2013

Owing to the increasing popularity of online gambling, customers today have a wide variety of casinos to choose from. Unfortunately, not all these casinos promise safe, fair, and secure gambling as they are meant to scam unsuspecting consumers. When you gamble with real money, you often have to divulge personal information, credit card numbers, and other sensitive bank details that can be misused in the wrong hands. This is precisely why you should take your time, weigh your options, and choose the right online casino for real money gaming.

Top Online Gaming Experiences for iPad Users
casino blog
29 April 2013

In theory, the iPad should be perfect for playing online casino games. The touchscreen interface is perfectly suited to making intuitive movements like pressing slot machine buttons or moving chips around a layout, and its shape and portability make it comfortable to use in almost any situation. Unfortunately, Apple’s on-going and slightly childish spat with Adobe means that their devices are incompatible with websites that use the latter’s Flash Player - which also happens to be the de facto standard for interactive online casino gaming. But fear not, brave casino gamers, as there are plenty of online casinos that have adapted their online offerings for the iPad gamer - here are what we humbly consider to be the best versions of poker, slots, roulette, and blackjack for Apple’s wonder-slab.

The Martingale System for Roulette

How to correctly use the Martingale System for Roulette to boost your bankroll

Playing roulette can be a lot of fun, but it’s even more enjoyable when you employ a bit of strategy to shake things up.  While strategies like the Martingale can’t guarantee you a win every time, and they can’t predict where that roulette ball is going to land, when they’re used with common sense they can help you capitalise on your winnings, and make games far more involving and exciting.

What is the Martingale System?

The Martingale betting system dates back to the 18th century, and is one of the best known roulette betting systems in the world. Known as a progressive gambling system, it involves players increasing their bets after each loss, while reducing their bets after each win. This results in the winning bet always paying off enough to make a small profit on the session and covering previous losses.

The Live Roulette Online Revolution
casino blog
26 April 2013

Roulette has come a long way since the days of the Romans, who some believe originated  the game from watching the spinning wheels of chariots cast on their sides – while others claim that an early version of the game was brought to Europe by Chinese monks in the 13th Century.  

From its early days as a primitive game of chance, roulette has emerged as one of the most popular of all casino games.  And we have come a very long way even from those much more recent days when roulette was associated with the glamour of the casino at Monte Carlo or the bright lights of Las Vegas.  With the advent of the online casino and smartphone technology, you can now play Live Roulette on your iPhone or tablet to relieve the boredom of a train journey or fill an idle hour.

3 Card Poker - Is Lady Luck on Your Side?
casino blog
27 March 2013

The game of 3 card poker is not one that is played often in casinos, and you may be forgiven for not having every heard of it. However, this does not mean that the game should be dismissed. In fact, it may be one of the most exciting games you ever play at a casino.

In this game, the player must make a bet after which the dealer deals three cards each both to the player and himself. In this game though, the player does not have extra cards from which they can try to get a flush, a straight or even a royal flush. This game involves just the player, the dealer and six cards. If the player folds at this point, he or she forfeits their whole bet and the hand is over. If they choose to keep playing, they will have to raise their bet, essentially putting more money into the pot to be won.

The Best Online Gaming Tips and Tricks
casino blog
15 March 2013

In order to get the most out of your online gaming experience, there are a few things you should know - here are a few house player secrets from the world of web-based online games.

Bingo!

When playing bingo online you shouldn’t take advantage of the first bet match or no deposit promotion you find. Shop around. Look for extra promotions that come into play once you’ve deposited some of your own money as these are often more beneficial than some free-to-play games.

Log in

If you are playing a game on a site that allows you to log in then you should do it. Not only will you get access to exclusive games for members only but you’ll be able to save your progress on them too. There’s nothing more annoying than playing a game all day only to lose your progress as soon as you close the window.

Craps: Is There Any Strategy Involved?
casino blog
11 February 2013

Craps is all luck, there’s no skill involved.” This half-truth is often heard around the casino. It’s true that all casino games have an element of luck, and craps is no exception. After all, the entire game is based on the outcome of rolling dice. Due to the nature of the game, onlookers often question if there is any strategy involved.

Even though it is a luck-driven game, you can develop a winning strategy. You must begin by preparing yourself before you even visit the casino. Next, you’ll need to understand some basic mathematical principles behind the game and which types of bets are worth your time. Although you may not be able to strategize as much as other games, you can become a skilled player.

The Beginnings of Online Casino Gambling
casino blog
02 February 2013

Can any of us, however young or old we might be really remember what life was like before we had the Internet? For anyone over the age of 30 or so the answer is probably yes but it’s not actually something we even really like to think about.

Online casinos did not emerge as soon as the Internet became more widespread but it did not take too long before some Internet savvy entrepreneurs discovered just how they could bring all the fun of casino gaming online and reach an audience of millions of people who may never have even seen in the inside of a land based casino!

The world of online casino gaming really began in 1994 when the tiny twin island nation of Antigua and Barbuda created a commission, the Free Trade and Processing Zone, to issue legal casino operation licenses to those who wanted to try to create an online casino that would draw in players from all over the world, as long as they had a PC and an Internet connection.

How to tell a good Rival casino from a bad Rival casino
casino blog
27 October 2012

The first Rival Gaming powered gambling portal appeared in 2006 and today their product is hosted at approximately 50 different online casinos which are owned by roughly 40 individual operators world-wide. Their catalogue of games includes just over 100 titles and players can access them via a download client or in the instant flash mode.

Some of the latest games include their revolutionary i-Slots which are accessible via their Casino Controller platform. Rival is actually wholly owned by a Cyprus-based company called Black Chip Ltd, so when you are installing the download client, the verified publishers name should say Black Chip Ltd. Most of the casinos that use Rival software are in fact licensed in Curaçao (in the Netherlands Antilles).

The best way to play and enjoy live online casinos
casino blog
24 October 2012

If you are looking to get the most out of online gambling today, one of the things you should really check out at some point is a Live Dealer Casino. They have only been around for the past five or so years, since 2006, but they have become increasingly more popular over the past couple of years.

These secure portals can be enjoyed 24/7 on your own, or better still, perhaps with a few friends over the weekend and with a few cheeky drinks. Just try not to consume too much alcohol or spend too much cash. You can only access a Live Dealer Casino after you have registered an account at the main casino.

Most of today’s sites that have a Live Dealer Casino will require you to initially download a program from the internet, which should take just a couple of minutes. You will then have to make a minimum deposit (or more) before the games can begin, because there’s no such thing as a free play mode or practice mode at any of today’s Live Dealer Casinos. They only accept hard currency.

Knowing the rules of an online casino will help your experience of them
casino blog
22 October 2012

One way to gain the most positive experience from an online casino is to take five minutes to go through their rules and policies, because the way in which an online casino operates can be quite different from how another conducts their business.

For example, when it comes to depositing into your online casino account, you may have been used to a casino that allows you to deposit a minimum of just $/€/£2.00, which is ideal if you are a lowroller who seldom has any more cash to spare.

However, after signing up to a new online casino you may find that their minimum deposit limit is much higher, for example $/€/£20.00. This could really stump you, so always check through each casino’s banking policies. You can find this information in the T’s and C’s section or in the Rules section. If you can’t find this info after searching yourself, simply contact the customer support and they should be able to inform you of their current deposit/withdrawal limits, which vary a great deal between today’s casinos.

Religion Inspired Online Casino Slot Games
casino blog
15 October 2012

This section takes a look at several different online slots that have a kind of religious theme where some are more loosely based on religion than others. For example, the Christmas period is one of the most obvious religious times of the year in the UK, and there are now various online slots that have a Christmas theme.

Developed by numerous different software providers, some of the Christmas-themed slot titles include Deck the Halls, Santa Surprise, Jingle Bells, Winter Wonders, Gift Wrap, Winter Wonderland, Naughty or Nice, Santa Paws, Scrooge and Ho Ho Ho. These games vary from classic three reel slots that have just one winning payline to five reeled slots with multiple winning paylines.

There are also now a couple of Easter-themed slots for players to try out such as Rival’s Eggstravaganza, Playtech’s Easter Surprise and a slot called Easter Bunny, which was developed by a relatively unheard of software provider called Cozy Games.

How to understand Casino Reviews
casino blog
10 October 2012

Online casino reviews should generally be quite easy for players to understand because their main purpose is to just provide players with relevant information about the online casino in question. Most of today’s online casino reviews are written in a concise manner and they only contain the important details about a casino, plus information that players are often unaware of, but should be aware of.

The most important thing about an online casino is that it is a fully licensed gambling portal, which you will be able to find out from the review. There are several trusted licensing jurisdictions around the world today including Curaçao (in the Netherlands Antilles), Gibraltar, Malta, the Isle of Man, Alderney (a UK Channel Island), Kahnawake (Canadian Mohawk territory) and even Antigua. Today’s most reliable and trustworthy online casinos hold a license from one of these jurisdictions.

Poker Stars and Wynn Resorts Merge
casino blog
08 October 2012

Towards the end of August 2012, it was announced that two major companies (who currently offer poker services to a combined total of more than 40 million people worldwide) have successfully formed an alliance in an attempt to help pave the way for a legal and regulated online poker industry in the US.

Both PokerStars and Wynn Resorts have merged and they are basically now hoping for a bill to be passed that will lead to online poker in the US becoming a legal industry.

PokerStars is a company which is often recognised as one of the true giants of internet poker in the US, Europe and beyond, and Wynn Resorts is a multi-million dollar Nevada-based company that develops high end land based casinos and hotels.

A similar merger has also occurred between 888 Holdings Plc and Caesars Entertainment and the main reason behind these mergers is that these companies in question are simply preparing for a day when online poker in the US does become legal. Many believe this is inevitable and that it will become a reality sooner rather than later. These companies will instantly become the main driving forces if (and when) legislation is passed.

How to Select an Online Casino
casino blog
30 June 2012

With new dozens of casino sites cropping up every day, finding a fun, safe and reputable one can seem as daunting as finding a needle in a haystack.  With big bonuses and bundles of ‘free cash’ being offered, it could be tempting to be sucked into something you are not entirely happy with.  The good news is that by following this guide, you could be spinning the slots or beating the banker in no time at all.

  • Make a list of what you want from an online casino.  Do you want to play lots of different games or specialise in just one or two? How often will you play and how much are you likely to deposit? Will you be using the same computer to play from or will you be moving around?  Downloadable software is best if you’ll be sticking to the same PC to play, but ‘instant’ or ‘flash’ play is a good option for those using mobile devices or several different computers.

    How can I find the Best Online Casino Promotions
    casino blog
    27 June 2012

    Surprisingly, it isn’t that difficult to find a good, wholesome online casino promotion because pretty much each online casino offers at least one or more lucrative special offers and most of them are well worth trying to get your hands on.

    The thing to remember when trying to find an attractive special offer is that there are standard promotions that you will be able to find. The most common of all online casino promotions includes the matching deposit bonus. This particular sign up/welcome bonus is the most common of all deals and generally works in the following way:

    If you deposit the maximum allowed, for example £500 and the bonus is a 100% match, you will basically receive double what you have deposited (a total of £1000). This is probably the best promotion available today as it guarantees you free money. Some casinos may offer just a 50% match up to £100 whereas others may offer a tidy 200% matching deposit bonus worth up to for example £2000.

    The ever Changing Face of the Online Slot
    casino blog
    23 June 2012

    Online slots have come a long way in the looks department since the mid-1990s when slot machine software was still in its infancy. This section take a brief look at how they have evolved over the past 15 or so years, looking at the first ever classic slot up to the most recently developed 3 dimensional i-Slots.

    Classic slots were the first slots to become available online. These had just three reels and one winning payline and very few player controls. They are still around today and it was Microgaming who first blessed us with their creation.  In fact, that very first slot, ‘Cash Splash’ can still be played today in various Microgaming-powered online casinos.

    All of a sudden, more slots started appearing and other software companies began developing their own take on a slot machine. More online casinos also started popping up all over the web and players didn’t have to look far to find a slot.

    Why does the Standard of Online Casino Customer Support Vary So Much
    casino blog
    20 June 2012

    If you are experiencing some kind of technical issue at the online casino you have signed up to or you are looking for certain information but just can’t seem to find it, you can contact the customer support and they should be able to help you. The thing is, not all support is a good as you would expect, which is why you can normally tell a great deal from how good their customer support services actually are.

    Depending on how responsible and trusted the actual operators are will usually determine the type of support they offer. Almost every online casino today allows you to get in touch with a member of their support team (which are usually available 24/7) by sending in an email or by calling them on one off the supplied telephone numbers.

    The telephone numbers may or may not be toll free so always check before dialling. For a more immediate response, you could also try the live chat feature, which can be launched in most cases even if you are not a registered member of the casino. This small chat box is securely protected and will open in a separate small window.

    When is it Best to Play on an Online Progressive Jackpot Game?
    casino blog
    16 June 2012

    A progressive jackpot game has an accumulating prize pool that is usually spread over a vast network of online gambling portals. In the past few years, more and more progressive jackpot games have become available for players.

    Each software provider has its own progressive jackpot network, with each company offering between 5 and 20 progressive jackpot games. It isn’t the software provider or the casino that contributes towards the jackpot, it’s the actual players. A small percentage of each stake spent on a progressive jackpot game is added to the total prize pool. This is why we hear of so many progressive jackpots that reach into the millions.

    This is also why there are certain times when players are better off playing on a progressive jackpot game. A progressive jackpot will usually have a seed amount (a starting amount) which is often been added by the casino, but from then on, the prize will continue to climb as more players vie for that same jackpot. The advice for players is to wait until the prize has reached a decent amount, otherwise if you win, you may not be so impressed with the jackpot.

    Player Location Restrictions at Online Casinos
    casino blog
    15 June 2012

    Occasionally, players are restricted from signing up to a gambling portal such as an online casino and this is quite often because of where the player is located.

    Apart from being underage or perhaps you accidentally filled in the wrong information during the application process, the other main reason a casino could deny you the chance to sign up with them will be because of the country in which you reside. This is otherwise known as a player location restriction (or restricted territories).

    Sometimes is it the country that will not allow you to sign up with the online casino, but other times it is the casino that will restrict you because of the country that you live in. You will find out whether or not you register can account with the online casino when you proceed to fill out the online application form because when you get to the part that requires you to enter your address, it simply won’t have your country of residence as an option.

    Can I Continue Playing in my Favourite Online Casino when I Travel Abroad?
    casino blog
    08 June 2012

    Online gambling laws vary a great deal from one country to the next, so the best advice to give would be to perform some research yourself into whether you are allowed to legally gamble or not online in the country that you intend to visit.

    For those of you who are just going away on a break for two weeks or so and if you feel as though this is too long to go without playing in your favourite online casino you’ll be pleased to know that you should be able to log in to your favourite online casino from most destinations and you will probably still be able to place a bet, especially if you are using a computer in for example your hotel’s internet café.

    You may notice a few precautionary measures trying to stop you, but allowing pop-ups for example will let you continue playing online poker or online roulette in the online casino you are already registered with. Some countries are very strict on not permitting online gambling in any form, but most of the time these countries have very few authoritative organisations that actually clamp down on the owners/operators of gambling portals, or the individuals themselves who play at these sites.

    What are the best ways to manage your own bankroll for online gambling
    casino blog
    02 May 2012

    There are various different ways of being able to manage you bankroll more carefully when gambling online. The most important thing to do is make sure that you are not betting more than you can afford. If you are spending more than you can afford on a regular basis, perhaps you should start trying to seek professional help before a serious gambling problem develops and spirals out of control.

    If you have just made a deposit, don’t spend it all in one go. Try to spread it out as much as you can and don’t waste money on ridiculous bets with odds for example of 100/1 (100:1, +1000). This is one fast way of losing your money if you continue placing bets with odds that offer very little chance of winning.

    If you have made a deposit of say $/€/£50.00, try to spend as little as one fifth of this bankroll. This rule can be used whether you are playing online poker or bingo, placing some sports bets or playing on your favourite game in an online casino. Never put all of your money into one game, which is what many gamblers tend to do. Like the saying goes, “Never put all of your eggs into one basket.”

    Which branded slot games do we want to see this year
    casino blog
    18 April 2012

    2011 was a great year for branded slots. They just keep getting better and better. The gameplay on most of these slots can be described as simply fantastic and the overall quality of the graphics and cutting edge animations often takes your breath away. The impressive sound effects and entertaining bonus rounds are also constantly evolving and becoming more creative with each new release.

    It doesn’t look as though things are going to be any different in 2012. Many players often anticipate the arrival of a new branded slot (otherwise known as a bonus video slot) and with the amount of ground breaking new and old software developers currently churning out games at the rate they are now, hopefully some of these games that we would like to see will start becoming a reality and appearing in our favourite online casino sooner rather than later.

    With the success of major branded games that have already been developed by some of the industry’s leading software providers, players have been able to experience games such as X-Men, Iron Man 1 and 2, Daredevil, Rocky, The Mummy, The Pink Panther, The Punisher, Lord of The Rings, the Fantastic Four and many more. We just hope to see as many great titles coming out in 2012.

    The oldest online casino
    casino blog
    14 April 2012

    The earliest online casinos first started appearing back in the mid 90’s and there has long been debate over who was actually the first ever online casino. You can land on the homepage of several leading online casinos and you will find the sentence “the oldest online casino” or words to that effect, but they can’t all be the oldest.

    Many people will argue that Intercasino were the first, others will tell you that Intertops Casino was the first to launch but then many will point out that Gaming Club Casino is the oldest. This section explores the truth behind who is actually the oldest. One thing is for sure though, that both Intercasino and Gaming club are without a doubt two of the oldest online casinos.

    If you visit the Gaming Club Casino, you will read the words “1st Online Casino, Est. 1994.” This technically makes them the oldest online casino in the world. However, this fact is slightly misconstrued.

    5 things you need to know about cashing out wins from online casinos
    casino blog
    13 April 2012

    In most cases, cashing out your winnings from any online casino is a relatively simple process and the following information contains five important things you should be aware of before attempting to make a withdrawal at your favourite online casino. This will prepare you for what to expect when the time comes to cashing out, however much you are attempting to withdraw.

    •    Choose your  Preferred Withdrawal Method

    When you first sign up to an online casino, you will probably be prompted to make your first deposit using a variety of different methods. This is where you should take the time to research whether your preferred method allows for both deposits and withdrawals, not just deposits.

    Not all methods allow for both, so if you want to keep things simple, try and opt for a method that will allow you to do both. Also, depending on your location (country of residence), some banking options may or may not be available. Many players may prefer to use a credit or debit card, whereas other players may prefer to use an e-wallet. Always check in the cashier section to see if your preferred method will allow you to withdraw, prior to signing up with them.

    How Not to Lose All Your Money Online For Gaming Beginners
    casino blog
    31 March 2012

    It is often far too tempting for players who are new to online gaming to throw way too much money at casino games, before they know the ins and outs of each game. With this approach, there can only really be one outcome - losing! Unless of course, you’re incredibly lucky, that is.

    One skill that all online gamers should hold from the word go, is that of being able to spot the ‘dodgy’ casino sites. It’s perhaps not as easy as it sounds to spot which sites will take your money and run and which you’ll have a fair chance of winning. After reading this article we hope that you’ll have a far greater chance of steering well clear of those nasty sites

    How can you kick up a fuss if you don't get paid by an online casino
    casino blog
    12 March 2012

    If the online casino that you are trying to cash out from is not letting you withdraw your funds, there is something seriously wrong. You can kick up a fuss by first contacting the support and hopefully this will get the issue resolved.

    Most support networks can be contacted via email, telephone/fax, Live Chat or occasionally by Skype. Contacting them immediately and at the first sign of any wrong doing is the best advice.

    However, before you start going mad at them (and if it has taken more than 48 hours to receive your winnings), it could actually be due to a number of different legitimate reasons. So before you do start panicking, consider the following:

    Are you trying to withdraw a substantial amount of money? If you are, the casino may need to contact you to advise you on the best way to withdraw these winnings. This is standard practice and does not mean that they are trying to hold back your funds.

    If you are trying to withdraw a relatively small amount, but your money still doesn’t appear to be arriving, are you sure that you gave them the correct banking details? Check your account settings to see if you supplied the correct banking information.

    Is Rival Casinos going to fall over and die?
    casino blog
    03 February 2012

    In online terms, Rival Casinos haven’t been around for a great length of time. They first launched in 2006. They provided a unique approach to how online casinos were to operate and little did they know they there would be tough times ahead, many tough times.

    The company are very resilient, but there is only so much a company can take before they admit defeat and cannot take any more blows.

    The introduction of the highly innovative i-Slots looked to be a huge success but the idea came at just the wrong time. The Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIEGA) was passed and threatened the entire operations of online gambling in the US, including Rival Casinos.

    Cracks then started to appear when in 2008, T2, a marketing company whom Rival had entered into a marketing agreement with claimed that Rival’s four owners had breached this agreement, which the lead to a lawsuit and they incurred a huge payout of approximately C$500,000 to T2 Marketing.

    Legal update of regulation in Online Gambling in Denmark
    casino blog
    01 February 2012

    Denmark has become the latest European nation to open up to online gambling. They have joined an ever growing collection of EU countries to pass legislation, which allows them to regulate online gambling.

    So far, there have been 38 leading operators that have managed to gain a total of 55 Danish Online Gaming licenses including bwin.party, PKR, 888, UniBet, PokerStars, Betfair, Betsson, Cryptologic, Red Club Poker and Danske Spil. Denmark has followed in the footsteps of countries such as Spain and France who have realised the potential revenue there is to be made from this multibillion dollar industry.

    More than half (20) of the companies that acquired an online gambling license from Denmark are in fact Malta-based operators. This new legislation was given the green light by both the European Commission and the Danish Parliament.

    How to deal with non-paying online casinos
    casino blog
    21 January 2012

    The fortunate thing for players is that most online casinos will payout without fail and usually within a maximum of 48hrs. The time taken to withdraw funds may vary from one online casino to the next and this could also depend on how much you are trying to withdraw.

    If you are just trying to withdraw £20, in many cases this can be instant, or within a couple of hours. If you have a substantial jackpot win of £5,000 or more, this could take longer to withdraw. Most large wins will need to be verified by the casino before they are paid out, so you may experience a slight delay on larger wins. Don’t panic because the funds are taking longer to arrive.

    The unfortunate thing for players is that there are a growing number of rogue casinos out there who have not been paying out winnings to their players. You may have already spent hundreds in the casino and finally hit a big win only to realise that they are not paying you when you proceed to withdraw.

    How to handle bonus disputes at online casinos
    casino blog
    18 January 2012

    Players must always ensure that they have read and fully understood the terms and conditions of an online casino bonus. Failure to familiarise yourself with the requirements in order to fully benefit from a promotional offers often results in players not achieving their full bonus, and this is through no fault of the casino.

    Registered members are generally not aware of the wagering (playthrough) requirements needed to complete a bonus. The limits set by most online casinos are also generally not within reach of most player’s realistic capabilities. The bonus will require the player to wager a large amount of cash and within a certain period of time.

    Many players simply do not have enough hours in the day to complete the wagering requirements and therefore will not receive the full bonus. This is the players fault for not realising the commitment needed in the first place, prior to signing up. To receive a sign up bonus (for example a matching deposit bonus), simply depositing the minimum amount is also not always enough, which players also tend to overlook.

    What does 2012 have in store for online gambling in the USA?
    casino blog
    15 January 2012

    To say that online gambling in the US will be totally legal in 2012 would be a very optimistic statement. However, progress is being made, albeit slow progress and until the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIEGA) is abolished, the wider community of online gamblers in the US will have to continue looking to find other ways of legally being able to place a wager at an online casino.

    There have been a lot of stories circulating that American players are closer to being able to play online but the truth of the matter is that there is still a great deal that needs to go through the courts and there are still many more decisions that need to be made by Congress.

    Before there is a possibility of widespread legal online gambling in the US, individual state laws will need to be modified and updated. Nevada will more than likely be the first state to allow all forms of online gambling, but again, this isn’t going to happen overnight.

    How exactly do you redeem online casino bonuses?
    casino blog
    14 January 2012

    There are in fact several different answers to this question and this will depend on which type of online casino bonus you are trying to redeem. The starting point to redeeming any online casino bonus is to actually sign up to the casino and become a registered member. Casinos do not just hand out bonuses to any old internet surfer.

    Registration is usually free and simple and there is also usually a rule with most online casinos that states that only one member per household may register an account. You cannot open multiple accounts with an online casino and use the same house address. Once you have become a member of the casino, you can now start to redeem your bonus. The registration is the easy part.

    There are numerous ‘No Deposit Casinos’ out there today, which offer new players a small amount of bonus funds to get you started, for free! This could be anywhere in the region of £2 up to a maximum of usually no more than £25. Players do not normally have to make a deposit into their account to receive these funds and this bonus cash will appear as either ‘Free Cash’, or ‘Bonus Funds’. Whatever the casino calls this cash, it is free and can be used to play on selected games in the casino in the Real Cash Mode.

    How to play with online casino bonuses, so that you get the most out of them!
    casino blog
    13 January 2012

    Online casinos have recently started offering players up to three different welcome bonuses to choose from. This means that a player can select a welcome bonus to better suit their budget. Choosing the right bonus to correspond with the amount of hours that you can play at a casino or how much cash you are likely to spend throughout the month will help you maximise what you can take from the bonus.

    Half of the casino bonuses are aimed at enticing new players and getting them to sign up, whereas the other half of the available casino bonuses are for loyal registered members.

    For those players who are looking to squeeze as much as they can out of a special offer, probably the most profitable deal to go for (if you have the choice) is the matching deposit bonus. Providing the player has enough funds to deposit large, they should deposit as much as they can (up to the maximum deposit limit) because this is just usually a one-off special offer and there is no point in wasting the free cash that is available.

    Which Online Casino Has Comp Points worth Collecting and Why?
    casino blog
    21 November 2011

    Most of today’s online casinos have some form of loyalty scheme. It is actually quite uncommon to find one that doesn’t have a loyalty program or VIP scheme of some sort.

    The main aim of these programs is to encourage players to carry on spending money and playing at their casino on a regular basis. They promise to then reward these loyal players for their efforts. The more frequently someone plays (in real cash mode) at a casino, the more points he or she will earn and therefore climb the ranks. These points can be referred to as comp points, loyalty points or frequent player points (FPP).

    There are usually different levels or ‘tiers’ to each loyalty scheme ranging from between three to eight different levels. Each tier will come with its own special rewards and perks that a player can benefit from. Many casinos give the player the first level of loyalty complimentary, but others will make them work for their position within the ranks

    Which Online Casino Accreditations are real and which are Just Plain Fake?
    casino blog
    19 November 2011

    Players should consider online casino’s accreditations prior to signing up with them. The logos of these ‘seals if approval’ can normally be located at the bottom of the homepage, which you can hover over and they are usually clickable meaning that once clicked, you will be sent directly to the site which approved them for being a ‘fair’, ‘trusted’ or ‘certified’ site. There are several different types of accreditation that combine to make a casino a safe and secure website.

    There are certain standards that players will notice with accredited online casinos that weaker online casinos simply won’t have. It’s simple, no certification, don’t trust them. If a casino claims that they are the ‘Number 1 Casino in Europe’, and have this advertised in bright neon letters, it is sure to fool hundreds of people, but where did they obtain this fact, who voted for them to become the ‘Number 1 Casino in Europe’, and what was the organisation that awarded the website with this accreditation?   

    This is an obvious example of how some casinos can award themselves with fake accreditations that should simply be ignored. It is hard for a ‘newbie’ (new player) to ever realise that these websites will say anything to get you to sign up. Unfortunately many players get misled.

    What are Wagering Requirements and how does it affect your Casino Bonus?
    casino blog
    18 November 2011

    Many online casinos today offer a loyalty program where players must wager a certain amount of cash within a certain period of time to receive a cash bonus. Other bonuses are available upon signing up for the first time, but to take advantage of either of these bonuses, players must adhere to the ‘play-through’ wagering requirements.

    In simple language, players must spend a certain amount of cash before even thinking of receiving the bonus. This will require plenty of time spent at the casino and by only playing on selected games. If the wagering requirements are not met within the selected period of time, players can wave goodbye to their bonus, which seemed quite realistic when they first started playing.

    When the actual wagering requirements are realised, it doesn’t take a genius to see that if a player does actually manage to wager the required amount, they have been very lucky. Players will need to spend plenty of hours on the computer. In fact, several hours of solid playing time per day is generally what it would take to fully receive the bonus cash. If you only have a few spare hours per week, there is very little chance that you will benefit from the special offer.

    Top 5 Online Casino Bonus Terms & Conditions to Look Out For
    casino blog
    16 November 2011

    When you enter any promotional offer at any online gambling site, whether it is a poker site, sports book or online casino, players should read the small print so they are clear about how special offer actually works.

    Number one:

    Everything is clearly explained in the Terms and Conditions (T’s & C’s) regarding all promotions. A player should thoroughly read through these and if they are unsure about any of the information, they should contact the customer support. Failing to fully understand the T’s & C’s could result in disappointment. If the support are either less than willing to help you or don’t explain things clearly, you should try your luck elsewhere and leave this casino alone.

    The State of Online Gambling on Mobile Devices
    casino blog
    14 November 2011

    The current state of online gambling using a mobile device with regards to the services and technology seems to just keep on improving at an exponential rate and is becoming more and more popular. The innovative apps and unbelievably high tech mobiles that are currently available have led to a sharp rise in players now playing ‘on-the-go’.

    Just a few years ago, mobile gambling was introduced, where players could place a bet on their favourite sport, or even on the X-Factor results. Now players can enjoy playing on Poker Apps from their favourite poker site. If their favourite site hasn’t launched an App by now, you can be pretty sure that the company has an application that is currently being developed or is already in the pipeline.

    From the birth of mobile sports gambling, and to the introduction of poker apps, payers can also now experience a range of casino games, accessible from their mobile device, wherever they may be. People could be sat on a park bench or on their way home from work on public transport, fully immersed in one of the numerous casino games such as Roulette, Blackjack or Video Poker that are now available. Players can also play on Slots and Instant Win Games such as a Scratch Card (Scratchies). Other games that are proving to be popular on mobile devices include both Keno and Bingo.

    How do you do your Due Diligence on an Online Casino?
    casino blog
    12 November 2011

    There is only so much a player can research when evaluating an online casino for the first time and when trying to determine the integrity of the owner and how they operate. There are many questions that a player must ask themselves before signing up with an online casino. The answer to these questions may not always be so clear, and how does a player even know if they are asking the correct questions?

    This is where organisations such as e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) were set up to ask the right questions and perform the necessary checks on the player’s behalf. This (non-profit) organisation was in fact set up and established by one of the industry’s largest online casino software providers, Microgaming. The aim was to have an auditor who could scrutinise an online casino and carry out the necessary checks that a player simply could not do on their own.

    How do Online Casinos get Good Reputations and what makes them Trustworthy?
    casino blog
    11 November 2011

    Online casinos can acquire a solid reputation for several different reasons. There are many casinos that are still around today since the first online casino was launched in the mid 90’s, but many of the weaker ones no longer exist. The UK saw a boom in online casinos that stemmed from major high street bookies, so players who already knew the operator instantly trusted their new online ventures, which gave these casinos a huge advantage in gathering new players.

    Casinos that have been around for longer generally have a better reputation compared with recently launched casinos, because of their impeccable track record regarding customer service, payouts, security and overall integrity, as well as the countless reviews that show them in a good light. It’s impossible for a new casino to instantly gain a good reputation, unless they happen to be owned by an already trusted and responsible operator.

    How can you Test the Customer Service at an Online Casino before you play?
    casino blog
    09 November 2011

    One way of checking whether or not the online casino that you are considering joining can be trusted or not is to check if their customer service is helpful and efficient. If they are not very helpful to begin with, this is not a good sign for the future, especially if you ever need to report a problem.

    Prior to signing up and registering a real cash account at one of the many online casinos, players can test the water by contacting the customer service and asking a few questions. One way of contacting them is by using the Live Chat feature, but not all online casinos have this option. If a casino doesn’t have a Live Chat feature, they will definitely have telephone support and either an email address to contact them on or an online email entry form. Most of the reputable casinos have Live Chat. Some of the online casinos may only grant access to their live chat to registered members only.

    There may be different telephone numbers available depending on which country you are located in. Therefore the support language may also vary so dial the number which is most relevant to you. If you send an email, or use the online email entry form, you can expect a response from the support within a maximum of 48 hours.

    At What Point do you start to Question an Online Casinos Random Number Generator?
    casino blog
    07 November 2011

    Most of the Random Number Generators that exist today have been carefully scrutinised and are constantly tested by a number of independent auditors. Although the outcome of a game is determined by an RNG, mathematically speaking, the results are just as random online as they are at land based casinos that have physical roulette wheels and dice tables with actual dealers.

    The worst thing that a player can experience is a faulty Random Number Generator (RNG) when playing their favourite game online. Many people say that the games online are fixed, or rigged in some way to favour the house, but this is not true. However, this could be said of a rogue operator who is purposely out to scam people. These minority online casinos are very few and far between, but they do operate. Some players do occasionally get caught out and lose money at these casinos. This could be down to the RNG’s that have been used and manipulated to give less than fair outcomes.

    Remember that the house always wins so just because you may have had a few straight losses in a row, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the online casinos RNG should be put under the spot light or questioned in any way. This is just down to both bad luck AND realistic outcomes. If you were to have 10 straight wins in a row, would you question the RNG?

    Are Online Slots Really Random? How does it Work?
    casino blog
    06 November 2011

    Players have always questioned the fairness of online slots. Are they really random? Are the outcomes as realistic as they are on a land-based slot?

    The short answer is yes.

    Online casinos use a Random Number Generator, which is usually abbreviated as an RNG. This is a computer program that is able to consistently produce a random and unique series of numbers every time it is used. The RNG’s used by online casinos determine the outcomes of thousands of Online Slots that are currently available. All outcomes today are determined by algorithm, a computer chip and an RNG. Software RNG’s apply to all online games including Roulette, Dice Games, Video Poker and most other Card and Table Games.

    When it comes to randomness, both classic slots and the more advanced multi-lined video slots (including their bonus rounds) all have RNG’s constantly working to produce random outcomes and realistic results. The Random Number is in fact generated by a complex mathematical equation prior to producing a specific output.

    Top 5 things to lookout for on T&Cs of online casinos
    casino blog
    01 November 2011

    Players are often duped into signing up with an online casino without ever reading the terms and conditions of a promotional offer. If a welcome offer appears too good to be true, it probably is.

    There are several rogue casinos out there who promise the world but do very little to keep their promise and when you contact the customer support, they simply throw the Terms and Conditions at you, which to be honest you should have read.

    The good news is that most online casinos are operated by reputable owners. The bad news is that on occasion, some will slip through the vast net and go undetected for a while before they surface on the casinoman.net radar and arouse suspicion. There have been a few online casinos that are part of the Virtual Casino group who have been offering their players (both new and old) a string of daily and weekly special offers in the form of a coupon code system.

    A History of WMS Gaming
    casino blog
    27 February 2011

    WMS Gaming started out its life when Harry Williams founded the company in 1943. At that time, the company was known as Williams Manufacturing Company. Harry Williams changed the way that pinball machines were designed by introducing a new mechanism allowing the machines to tilt for a better gaming experience. This changed the future of the game in the USA.

    This set a president for the company in future years, and they ventured into the computer gaming market in the 1980s where they developed games for video arcade games. Then in 1991, the company began producing video lottery terminals under the company name Willliams Gaming.

    After the success of the video lottery games, Williams Gaming as the company was known at the time, launched their first video poker game, which was a sensation. This led them to start producing casino slot machines in 1994 which were housed in casinos all over America. In 1999, the company changed name again to WMS Gaming, as it is now known.

    casino blog
    24 March 2010

    With the world of online gambling becoming increasingly popular, the fight between the online casinos to win new gamers grows. In their bids to win new clients online casinos have introduced online casino bonuses whereby the gamer gets a bonus paid to their online gaming account for registering and placing bets with them. On some occasions online casinos also offer bonuses progressively for being a consistent player.

    In recent years there has been allot of hype about online casino bonuses mainly coming directly from the online casinos themselves. As introducing online bonuses was a marketing ploy implemented by the online casino industry it can be difficult to distinguish between bonuses that really benefit you and those that are almost unobtainable. Casino Man has come up with a unique tool to differentiate between the two.

    The Benefits of Online Slots as Opposed to Casino Slot Machines
    casino blog
    19 February 2010

    Gambling should be enjoyed as it’s a great way of letting your hair down with friends and splashing the cash to try and get some more in return.

    Unfortunately the nature of gambling is that you will win some and you will lose some but it’s just making sure you recognise when you are winning and when you’re losing.

    At the end of the day this is what it all boils down to and it doesn’t matter whether you’re playing the online slots or playing on the slot machines at the casino, the rules are the same.

    There are some subtle differences in terms of functionality and the environment that can be the difference from being a winner or a loser.

    Playing the online slots on your computer at home does have some major gambling advantages as it means that you won’t be caught up in the atmosphere of a lively and buoyant casino filled with other gamblers either making a ton of cash or others losing the entire contents of their wallets.

    Many gambling decisions can be made from the adrenaline of being watched by others and the reactions of the dealer.

    11 February 2010

    Whether you are gambling in a casino or using online gambling websites, when it comes to slot machines, you cannot control the spin of the slot game. It doesn’t matter how much you urge it round to the symbol that you need you cannot control it as it is completely random.

    The only thing you can control is your feelings and the amount of money you put into the machine. By using good money management strategies you can plan to maximise your winning capabilities and losses to get the best possible entertainment.

    The longer you can keep your head and stick to a money management strategy, the longer you will find the games will last, and you’ve got to be in it to win it.

    It is important to have a money management strategy in place before you play that particular game as an online slot machine will have a different strategy to playing online blackjack. Many gamblers suffer from a hot head and this is when an online slot will take your money as you will make snap decisions with your budget and before you know it your money’s all gone and the games over before you’ve had a proper chance to win anything.

    Gambling Online in the U.S.
    casino blog
    14 January 2010

    Even after the Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA), the future of gambling online in the United States is not entirely clear at present. Having tried several times to pass bills that would prevent online players in the U.S. from using online gambling websites legally, legislators finally discovered a way to make it more complicated for citizens in the United States to enjoy real money games online.

    Making Online Casino Gambling Illegal in the U.S.

    Through the history of gambling online, legislators have tried several times to set up a bill that would ban online casino players in the U.S. from gambling at online casinos for real money. However, the legislator’s bills were thrown out in 2000 and 2001. On the other hand, the U.S. government tightened regulations on the online casino industry, which has indeed encouraged online casinos to enhance their services by providing detailed security information for their registered players. Nonetheless, the government were still not happy and so instead of banning gambling online in the U.S. they passed the UIGEA (above) which made it illegal for credit card companies as well as banks to transact with online casinos.

    Take Advantage of Free Casino Games
    casino blog
    31 December 2009

    It has been noted that online gambling is currently one of the most popular activities on the Internet. The majority of people who come across references to online casinos and gambling online want to try it out. What is more, finding and registering at an online casino is a very easy and simple process. However, the problem lies in the fact that these first time gamblers do not understand the rules, procedures and strategies of online casino games. As a beginner, you could always find a book or articles on the web but these will only help you up to a certain level. The proof of the pudding is in the eating and you’ll only really gain the knowledge of online gambling if you actually play. But it is important to remember that if you start betting with real money right from the start you will no doubt lose heavily and are more than likely to just give up, and effectively online casinos will lose potential customers.

    As such in the interest of the online casinos and the novice players, casinos create free casino games. The gamblers do have to sign up before they can choose the free games option, but once they are registered they can select the free casino game they want and will receive a certain amount of credits to use. Unfortunately for the new players these credits are worthless and cannot be cashed, but if they do lose all of them they can simply restart the game and will get a new set of credits.

    The Importance of Online Casino Reviews
    casino blog
    17 December 2009

    If you’re looking to place your bets online then online casino reviews are probably going to be your best guide on understanding the process and how to win big. For online gamblers, the casino reviews can actually turn out to be your best friend in the whole world, particularly if you are a beginner and looking for some basic facts to help you select the right site and the right game. However, always take the online casino review sites with a pinch of salt as sometimes they can be misleading and direct you to a rouge online casino and, in effect, ruin your online gambling experience. So be aware of fake or untrustworthy casino review sites and ensure you research into the review sites themselves.

    Furthermore, it is now apparent that online casino reviews are extremely important these days. It is true that rouge online gaming websites do surface many players, yet over time many online gamblers have become aware of these sites and therefore the number of these false online casino review sites has declined. The majority of illegitimate casino service providers are well-known in public and so the online gambling business is gradually proving to be extremely lucrative for all the honest and reliable online casino review sites. Equally, you tend to find that the sincere service providers provide the best payouts for the online gamblers. These online casino review sites can of course afford to pay the players more due to the fact that they are not driven by greed but are more concerned with profit.

    26 November 2009

    One of the hot topics at the moment in the online poker industry is to create a poker bot that can play online automatically with relatively little or no human interaction but can of course win as much money as possible. This has caused concern for both online poker websites and players as a computer programme could essentially outsmart live thinking online players very easily and take their hard-earned money. In the end, these poker bots could rob the online poker sites of quality players. Studies have shown that about 12% of online poker players were anxious about or just entirely stopped betting at their online casino because of this poker bot craze. Fundamentally this would stop players risking their money and furthermore completely stop gambling online.

    The human online poker players are indeed up against it because the poker bot can easily work out the statistics and probabilities of a game, which is insanely risky for your bankroll. Conversely, there are certain methods and strategies on how you can beat a poker bot at online poker and therefore give you back the edge. If you understand how the computer generated codes of the online poker sites and poker bots actually work then you could use this against them. A poker bot is limited to making decisions based exclusively on known patterns of the game. So they bet based on the play of the game in terms of its statistical analysis of poker.

    casino blog
    28 October 2009

    Over the last few years the popularity for gambling online websites has rapidly increased. With new games being developed and the older games still attracting players it is no wonder that online casinos are evolving fast.

    Some of the top online gambling games are blackjack and poker. You can play many different types of poker games online, usually in either tournaments or cash games. Texas Hold’em is by far the most popular online poker game, but many other variations are also played. Omaha, Seven Card Stud and Draw Poker are all available at online poker rooms. It is important to remember that poker requires a certain level of skill in order to win so it is best to read and learn about the game before playing and gambling. Video poker is another online game that attracts users from around the world. It is primarily based on 5 stud poker and part of the appeal to the majority of the players is that there is no bluffing. Additionally, the odds for winning and getting a payout on video poker are quite favorable in comparison to some other forms of online gambling. Similarly, slot machines are one of the most played games in a casino as well as online. This could well be because it is a fairly basic game to play as you only ever have to click a button or possibly pull a lever.

    Gambling Online Law
    casino blog
    21 October 2009

    Trying to regulate and control online gambling is extremely difficult given the nature of the industry and the huge availability of casinos and online slots around the internet. Any laws need to be agreed internationally to have an effect on the online gambling industry as countries from all over the world will be affected and obviously these websites on the internet are available worldwide.

    No agreements exist at the moment which means that online gambling is still open and available for any users, and due to disagreements between countries at the moment it is likely to be a while before any legislations are put into effect or agreed.

    A lot of the interest in online gambling comes from Monaco, Antigua and Belize whose governments are keen to keep online casinos running although the United States is constantly arguing otherwise. The US believe that online gambling is illegal and restrictions should be made to stop it but they are unable to push this belief without destroying their relationships with other countries.
