Online Casino Tips You May Never Have Thought About
casino blog
05 July 2013

Over the past decade or so online casinos have come to the forefront of the gambling world, allowing players the possibility of winning money in the more relaxed environment of their home or even when on the move. The variety of games on offer is huge so some general tips for gameplay are useful to know. Here are some you may never have thought of before.

Learn the games

Don’t just assume that you can play a game – it’s a recipe for losing a lot of money. Even if you’ve played blackjack before and know the rules, there might be slight variations even if it’s only in the amount you can bet or the layout of the game. Take time to learn the rules if the game is unfamiliar to you – many online casino sites, including Betsson Casino Online, offer the chance to play for fun so you can get acquainted with the game first. These sites also offer tips and resources for each game.

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 Essentials Of Playing Online Slot Games
casino blog
16 March 2013

Everyone knows what casinos are, and everyone knows of slots, roulette and blackjack. So surely you know everything about the games that casinos offer, right?

Well, no.

Whilst roulette and blackjack may sound like the harder games to learn, you’ll actually find that slot games are the toughest to pick up since they differ greatly than the land based games everyone is used to. By the end of this guide, you’ll understand the basics of online slots which usually alienate players.

What Does It All Mean?

Online slots use a random number generator, also known as an RNG, which determines the random outcome that appears on the reels. This means you can’t predict what will appear by memorising what order the symbols appear in, as it changes each time. You’ll also find that online slots have features which most land based slot games don’t, including bonus symbols, which I’ll detail later.

The Johnny Chan Academy had a turbulent past and was operational for a while, but has since closed down. This section takes a brief look at the Johnny Chan Academy, which was a Casino Dealer School that aimed to teach aspiring croupiers (dealers) the finer details of table etiquette in the casino. This included how to handle the chips in the appropriate manner, how to actually shuffle the cards correctly, how to deal the cards and also taught about standard casino procedures.

It also offered potential candidates assistance in finding future employment as dealers.

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.

    casino blog
    04 June 2012

    Live Dealer Casinos are the latest online gambling phenomenon to take the internet by storm. Most of today’s leading online gambling portals now have a Live Dealer Casino available for their registered members, and they can only be accessed after installing a secure download client.

    Since the first live dealer casino appeared online back in 2006, it didn’t take long before others started appearing and now there are plenty for players to choose from.   Instead of virtual games that have been developed by software providers using realistic looking tables and realistic sounds of a casino, the live dealer casino is actually set in a secure casino environment with real tables, real croupiers and reals sounds.  

    Once you have registered with an online casino that has a live dealer casino included in their product, the only way you will be able to access the live dealer games is by installing their downloadable casino program and then making a deposit into your gambling account.
