An online casino is a website where you can play thousands of computer-generated table and card games, slots, video poker, bingo and lottery-style games, scratchcards, and state-of-the-art live dealer games that aren’t computer-generated, and they are now more popular than ever.

Here are several useful tips for anyone who is looking for a reliable casino online to register a new account with.

Top 10 tips for choosing a suitable online casino

Before signing up to an online casino to play any of its games in the real money mode from your Wi-Fi/internet-connected desktop computer or mobile device, there are many things to consider.

To ensure the online casino you join doesn’t let you down in any way, always remember the following important tips:

Tip 1: Only register accounts with online casinos that are fully licensed and regulated by globally renowned iGaming licensing authorities. Examples include the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner, the Malta Gaming Authority, and the UK Gambling Commission. There are many others

Tip 2: If the casino is licensed by a mid to top-tier licensing authority, it should also be owned by a responsible and trustworthy operator with a solid track record. Don’t sign up to unlicensed sites controlled by untrustworthy operators

Tip 3: A fully licensed online casino controlled by a trusted name will also have excellent reviews, so check the reviews to find out more about that site. Reviews can give you a feel for a casino before visiting the site

Tip 3: Before signing up anywhere, check to see if your preferred online payment (and your local currency) is accepted

Tips 4: Check to see if the URL starts with https:// and that it uses 128-bit or higher Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption, which keeps cybercriminals at bay

Tip 5: Try to find out if the casino has your favourite games or games from your favourite providers. Don’t play at online casinos with software providers nobody has ever heard of

Tip 6: Test the player support to see how friendly, responsive, and helpful they are. You can tell a lot about a business by how good its customer service levels/player support is

Tip 6: Check out their promotional offers and bonuses to see if they are any good, and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions to see if the wagering requirements are fair and realistic

Tip 7: Make sure the casino (along with all of its services, features, and products) works well on your preferred device and your web browser

Tip 8: See what kind of safer/responsible gambling tools the casino has to help you stay in better control of your spending

Tip 9: Visit the website and try to have a good look around before joining to see if it’s one that you instantly get a good feeling about

Tip 10: Remember to have a recent scanned copy of your ID (passport or driver’s license will do) and a scanned copy of a recent gas, electric or mobile phone bill – must be less than three months old) stored on your device, which you will need to send to the casino after you sign up to complete the age verification process.

How long does it take to complete the verification process?

At most online casinos, it can take anywhere from a few minutes up to usually no longer than 48 hours to complete the account verification process, also known as KYC (Know Your Customer). However, not all online casinos, especially most crypto-accepting casinos, don’t enforce the account verification process.

Final note

Before signing up anywhere, make sure you are of legal age to play at the casino because this can be 18, 19, or 21, depending on where you live. Finally, remember that you are never guaranteed to win and are subject to winning and losing.

Try to gamble responsibly at all times and play at online casinos while under the influence, tired, or intoxicated.
