A handy guide for online casino safety

It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to online gambling – with so many sites out there, choosing the right one requires a careful touch and a bit of research. Fortunately, we’ve put together this handy guide so you’ll have no problem picking the right online casino for you!

The first thing you should do when checking out a new site is to check that it has a licence. This is usually in the About Us section of a website, but before you do anything else it’s important you make sure that your site has one. It’s an easy way to tell a legitimate online casino from a potentially illegal or crooked one. After that, you should take the time to go over the terms and conditions thoroughly. These kinds of rules and regulations are important for understanding how the site operates and will contain vital information about things like bonuses and payment. The last thing you want is to win a load of money and then find out that you won’t be allowed to get it for a month. Doing these steps first are the best way to make sure the site you’re looking at is one that’ll do right by you.

Once you’re sure the site or sites you’re looking at is legitimate, it can be a little tricky trying to decide between them. If they’re all licensed they must all be equally good, right? The truth is, each site is a little different from the bonuses they offer to the types of bet they take so it’s worth making sure you’re familiar with the whole site. Of course, the better-known sites might be easier to familiarise yourself with. Most sites will offer sign up bonuses or free bets to let you get a taste for how they operate and this is a great way to check and see if you like the site you’ve found as well without taking a risk. It also helps to check any reviews the site might have to see what feedback the other users have given it, if you see a lot of negative reviews, that can be a red flag that the site might not be the best choice for you and your money.

Once you’ve found a site there’s one more thing you need to make sure you keep in mind before you start. Even if it seems like a good idea, you absolutely shouldn’t open multiple accounts. There’s quite a few reasons for this but the most important one is probably that it’s against the terms and conditions of most sites. In fact, it can jeopardise your winnings if you do open more than one account so it’s definitely safest to stick to one account no matter how good that sign-up bonus looks. But if you bear all this in mind, then playing safely online should be quite easy! Just in case though, we’ve got a short animation below to help you remember all the information we’ve provided here:
