What exactly is BitCoin, and how can you take advantage of this new digital currency at your favorite online casino?

What is BitCoin?

BitCoin is the latest and the most revolutionary form of currency to hit our (virtual) wallets. BitCoin is a cryptocurrency, which basically means it is a form of digital currency. It is entirely virtual – BitCoin is created virtually, stored electronically, and spent online. No one can have a BitCoin in their pocket, unless that pocket is an electronic one.

BitCoin was created by a software developer – or a group of software developers; no one really knows – “named” Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. They/he/she proposed the system as a form of electronic payment based on mathematical formulas. By 2015, there were over 100,000 BitCoin merchants and vendors accepting the currency. You can use BitCoin as you would any form of electronic payment, or save it as an investment.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

casino blog
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.

With every coin played, the value of the jackpot increases by a tiny proportion and as a general rule, only the players betting maximum credits per spin will be eligible for an attempt to win the top prize. Regardless of the number of credits per play, all the players contribute to the jackpot. Therefore, if you bet with less than the maximum number of coins required you are contributing to the progressive jackpot without ever having a chance of actually winning it. So remember to never play with less than the maximum number of credits to qualify for the jackpot. If you are trying to stretch your gambling session and want to play one coin at a time then it is best not to play progressive slot machines.

Whether you’re playing at an online casino or in Las Vegas, it is every slot players dream to hit one of the huge progressive jackpots. In fact, the odds for winning a progressive jackpot are actually much better than those for winning the lottery. If you want to go after the big prize it is not a good idea to bet everything you have, but use a portion of your gambling money now and then to chase that progressive jackpot.

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.
