You will be given a choice of ‘play money’ and
‘real money’ accounts when creating your online
casino account. Make your choice and follow the prompts to
fill in your personal details, such as name, address, contact
details and age (remember you must be over the age of 18 to
gamble). If you choose to play for ‘real money’,
you will need to locate and click on the ‘Cashier’
button in order to add funds to your account. There are a
range of secure online banking options which can be used.

Once you have opened your account and
deposited your funds with Cashier, you can choose a game from
the casino’s menu and begin playing. You will be able
to select the value of your bets and tailor the game according
to your budgets and needs. Remember to read the rules of the
game before playing as this will give you some helpful tips.
1. As a beginner, make sure that you
read and understand the terms and conditions of any bonuses,
loyalty programmes, promotions and competitions that online
casinos use to attract players to their online gambling websites.
2. A reputable online casino should list
the payout results of their previous games, as this will give
the players an idea of what payouts can be expected. Players
should play those games that offer the highest payout.
3. Make sure that the online casino you are
using has a valid license. Legitimate online casinos usually
operate in specific areas, such as Argentina, Israel, Australia,
South Africa, Mauritius, Austria, India and Canada and an
online casino with a license is more reputable and trustworthy.
4. Any reputable and trustworthy online casino
should have an ‘About Us’ or ‘Company Information’
section on their website. The casino must be open and transparent
with regards to their history, management structure and origination.
Beginners should not play at those online casinos that are
reluctant to divulge company information to their prospective
or existing players.
5. Customer Support is integral when using
an online casino, as errors and problems do occur and you
will need to speak to an actual person at some stage. Make
sure that the online casino you use has a support line (email,
chat or telephone options) and the Customer Support information
should be clearly displayed on the website.
6. A credible online casino will use software
from a reputable software manufacturer, such as Microgaming,
Playtech and Real Time Gaming.
7. The Terms and Conditions of Play
are also important and should be displayed on the online casino’s
website for players to read. Items such as payout clauses,
geographic restrictions and other clauses will be listed here
and can differ from online casino to online casino.
