IF YOU like a flutter on the roulette wheel or a few hands of blackjack, you might not know about the online casinos that offer real-time gaming.
No longer do you have to get dressed up in your best clothes and head to your favourite casino, now we have digital solutions that let you play in the comfort of your home.
If you’re planning to register with an online casino, here are a few common mistakes to avoid.
- Incorrect personal information – Sadly, some people think they can simply put anything in the personal information windows; once the account is set up, it has to be verified and should the casino staff see anything unusual, they will block the account. It is in your interests to enter correct data, otherwise your account might be at risk.
- Failing to investigate conditions of play – If you know little to nothing about online slot machines, for example, and you just play the first online slot you see, your chances of winning are reduced. Always read the rules prior to commencing play, just as you would in a bricks-and-mortar casino and if you are not sure about something, enquire with the casino staff, who are there to assist you in any way that they can.
- Not setting a play limit – Prio to entering the online casino, you should know what your session limit is; never exceed this, as chasing your losses can quickly lead to serious debt. No one wishes to fall into debt and there are rules that you can set to reduce the risk of ending up in financial trouble. If you have self-discipline, you are less likely to fall into this trap. If you are winning, then why not play a little longer than usual? You should ride your luck when you’re ahead and quit when lady luck isn’t around.

- Choosing the wrong casino – Some sites look very professional and the service is excellent; it is only when you come to cash out your winnings, things start to go wrong. Some casinos are not even registered and they are set up to take your money. Once you discover the scam, you are blocked and at the end of the day, you know nothing about the scammer, the business address is false and they hi-tech software for IP anonymity. Take your time when reading the terms & conditions and do your research to minimise the risk of falling prey to a bogus website.
- Not maximising your chances of winning – Playing casino games for money demands a degree of competence and knowledge; you probably know that the house has the edge (except with baccarat) and prior to playing the slots, read about the average pay out, max jackpots and percentages.
If you watch out for all of the above, you should have a fantastic time playing your favourite casino games and hopefully, you will come out on top more often than not.
