How To Choose An Online Casino

Before you start gambling at any new online casino, it would be very much worth your while to check out a few simple details about the casino site. Hey, you’re trusting them with your money, so they should disclose certain key information to you! Knowing this information in advance could save you some headaches. 

Is the casino licensed?

To qualify for a license, an online casino must meet certain standards set in the country where the site is hosted. License fees start from about $50,000 and are usually valid for at least 2 or 3 years. According to estimates, some 20% of online casinos don’t have licenses. Here’s the golden rule: If they’re not licensed, don’t play there!

The payout

A casino that values its good name will commission an accounting firm to audit and report on the percentages of payouts. PriceWaterhouseCoopers, for instance, reviews the historical payouts to gamblers by Microgaming and its licensed casino sites. You can usually read the reports on the casino websites.

Does the casino belong to a reputable watchdog organization?

Casino02There are watchdogs and just plain dogs; you can’t trust all of them. Many times the so-called ”watchdog” is nothing more than an online advertising gateway to a group of casinos. If the watchdog organization is any good, it will prepare a set of best practices that must be observed by all participants, including casinos, software dealers, casino portal sites and online gamblers.

Here are a few more things you should check out before you start gambling:

  1. The important gambling message boards should reflect trust and faith in the casino.
  2. Any online casino should be affiliated to a physical, non-digital casino.
  3. There should be a self-labelling system for users to rate the contents of the casino site.
  4. The recognized and well-known casino portals should support the individual casino website.
  5. A casino that intends to succeed in the long term will go to the trouble of building a well-structured site supported by reliable software.
  6. It will be monitored by an accounting company, and of course it will be licensed.
  7. This is the type of casino that doesn’t have to crook its customers to make a profit. It’s the type of site operated by owners who honestly and professionally work to entrench a trusted and popular brand name.


Interested In Playing Poker?

Maybe you recently caught a glimpse of the show Celebrity Poker and all it took was one episode and you found yourself hooked. Or maybe, all your friends have been raving about how addictive the game is and how much money theyíve won. Now you know you’re getting a little bit interested, no matter even if you think that curiosity has indeed started to kill the cat.

Poker tradition

But don’t worry, with poker, there shall be no senseless animal killing and anyone and anything can examine it to his heartís content. And so, if youíre interested in playing poker, hereís what you can expect.

Poker Is No Ordinary Game ñ Most people think that poker is one of the easiest ñ or maybe even the silliest ñ card games because youíre only holding two cards in your hand so how hard can it be? And it seems silly because with just two cards, people actually expect you to be able to deduce whether youíve got a good poker hand or not and isn’t that silly?


We’re not all born with ESP here! But ladies and gentlemen, those are misassumptions ñ although the general rules for poker are quite easy to understand, to be able to win not just once but consecutively, you need to have a variety of mental strategies to see you through. Michael Jordan said that basketball is more of a mental rather than a physical game, didnít he? Well, Iím here to tell you that poker is more of a mental game, too ñ rather than one that simply deals with random luck.

You Can Earn Money Playing Poker ñ Another erroneous belief most people have is that since poker is above all, a card game. Since it’s mostly played in casinos, itís very much a vice and can be the reason why your moneyís flowing out like water. Well, thatís where theyíre wrong again! Itís very easy to earn money playing poker.

Better gambler

All you need is to improve your playing style and money management. Yes, thereís such a thing as money management in poker. Lastly, you need self-control. If you have that, then youíll know when itís time to stop playing poker and when itís okay to press your luck some more.

Poker Is Fun ñ If you think poker is a very serious game, youíre partially right. But not all serious things are lacking in pleasure, you know. Take the game of chess, for example. It seems boring at first glance but when you learn how to play the game, it gets addictive. And thatís how it is with poker as well.
