Online casinos around the world
If you are an experienced online gambler, and probably also if you just started, you will know that there are thousands of casinos available on the internet. You could just pick one and stick to it, or you could search for the best one. But what are the things that make an online casino good or bad?
Reliability / Licensed
There is no reason for a decent online casino not to be regulated by the international gambling authorities (Alderney, Antigua Barbuda, Gibraltar or Malta). So, when you are checking out online casinos, first find out if they have a casino license. If they don't, we advise you not to play there.
Sure, online gambling is fun, but you also play to win. Payout rates vary per casino, but sometimes also per game. Some casinos have a payout rate as high as 98%. That means that for every 100 dollar spent in that casino, 98 dollar is paid to winners and jackpot prices. Most casinos won't go below 95% in payout rate, simply because they wouldn't get any players. It doesn't hurt to verify the quoted payout rate though. 'Good' online casinos are verified by third parties and you can find monthly reports on their payout rates.
A good casino doesn't delay its payments. If you won some money, you should be able to collect it and this should take no longer than a few days.
Most casinos offer attractive casino bonuses as a warm welcome. Often they double your first deposit, up to a certain maximum amount. Always check the terms and conditions, because, as you will understand, you first need to play for a certain amount before you can start withdrawing.
Finally, a good casino will help you when you are facing problems. Email and phone are common options, but live chat is also very convenient.
