Find the right online casino for you

There are now thousands of online casinos available for players to choose from, connecting with laptops, tablets and smart phones. Maybe soon also on your smartwatch? But is there anything to separate them so that you choose with confidence.

The obvious place to start is making sure the online casino has a licence from a reputable authority. These include the UK Gambling Commission, Malta Gaming Authority, The Alderney Gambling Control Commission, The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission of the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. You'll be looking for the licence that is required in your location, not the location of where the operator is based. So if the operator is based in the Bahamas but you are in the UK, you are perfectly safe if you can establish that they have UK Gambling Commission licence. Click here if you want check on licenses.

Licence is a good start but there are still hundreds of sites to run through that have one. Probably the most important thing to select if you are not a native English speaker, or have a high level of proficiency, is an online casino that has a version of their site written in a language that you understand well. This is important not only if you have any sort of difficulty and need to contact customer services, but also understanding the basic operation of the games and the specialised rules. If someone asks you to help them find one, for instance an online casino in Arabic, then online review sites are the best place to look so that you can get a quick comparison.

Signing up usually merits a sign-up bonus but these are to be considered with care. Weigh up what the conditions will mean to you in-order to qualify for the bonus as often it involves gambling a large multiple of the actual bonus itself and therefore is likely not be an actual bonus at all. It might well be an expensive beginning. If you can't find a sign-up bonus that makes sense then ignore the bonus and just play to the style that you are comfortable with.
Game Options
There are new games being invented all the time, some won't last but others will hook your attention. Multi wheel roulette will delight those who have only five minutes to spare as when you place your bets on the layout they get played on eight tables at once, all with a different wheel spinning. Its fast, furious and high risk. Try it out for free before getting involved.

If you are a slots player then there are literally hundreds of titles all with different in-game features to choose from, many are the same across different sites as they as supplied by the big software makers. Some sites however have titles that are unique to them. And there are new ones out every week.

Live Casino

Some people want to gamble in a slower more natural way, as if they were in a real physical bricks and mortar casino. This is now quite possible online with many sites offering a “live casino” option, and actually makes a lot of sense to players. Playing as if in a real world casino gives you the time to make decisions that you don't get in the virtual world.

Do research before playing and be sensible with your bankroll. Best of luck.
