Get More Out of Online Casino Gaming

October 27, 2008

To get the best out of any endeavor one has to do a bit of homework and put in a bit of effort. The same applies to online gaming. New players need to look for a few things in choosing online casinos and follow a few guidelines while playing. This will ensure that they have an enjoyable gaming experience. The following pointers will be of help.

  • Navigability: If a player has to spend half the time searching for what he wants he will not enjoy online gaming. Most online casinos are laid out in a user friendly way. New players should navigate through the casino portal and learn what is where.

  • Game range: The casino should offer what the player wants and the player should check this out upfront. Some players want progressive slots, other want tournaments, others want no frill games with low house edges. There is little point in choosing a casino that has little range in the activity of interest.

  • Software features: Most online casinos offer powerful features that enhance the pleasure of gaming. New players should try these out and learn to use them rather than ignore them.

  • Welcome bonus: This is the biggest incentive for signing up with a casino. Players should opt for casinos that offer no deposit bonuses so that they can start playing with the casinos money.

  • Bonus rules: Reading bonus terms and conditions is the most boring part of online gaming but unfortunately one of the most important. Are the players required to enter bonus codes? What are the wagering requirements? These questions are answered in the bonus rules.

  • Payment compatibility: Choosing the right deposit and withdrawal option is most important. The option should be legal in the player’s country and be compatible with the player’s currency. Online casinos do not usually indicate fees charged by the service providers to the players. These need to be checked out as well.

  • Live chat support: Live support is the only meaningful support. New players should avoid online casinos that do not offer this facility. Support staff members are trained to be courteous in all conditions but it helps if the players are also courteous.

  • Audit reports: these indicate that the online casino is being audited regularly. The content of the report is less important than the fact that the report exists. But players should check the date of the latest report to ensure that it is current.

  • Exclusion features: These are meant for players who run into problem gambling. Using these features they can be prevented from gambling for a while. Hopefully player will never have to use them but like fire extinguishers they need to be on hand.

  • Logging out: This is the most important issue for new players. They should always log out of the casino after playing. Otherwise it is an invitation for someone to play on their behalf and with their money.
