What you ought to do when looking for casinos to play at
Despite no shortage of options, here are a few things you ought to do (and consider) before signing up to any casino online.
Yes, you do have alternatives if it turns out your last registration was a miss. Yet, having them don’t do you any good when:
- Your account gets closed with no warning in advance
- You try withdrawing winnings but can't, due to amount restrictions
- The casino customer support representatives are slow at responding
- The casino doesn’t respond to your attempts at contacting them, at all
- Your funds gets confiscated and the reason for it is vague
Here's the best way to avoid running into issues such as the ones outlined above …
Read online casino reviews (and our forum threads)
Reviews are great when researching online casinos, allowing quick skimming of the most important details. We also recommend that you either read or ask about the casino you want to know more about on our forum.
Check if it’s licensed
Whom the casino answers to in terms of license requirements and regulations depends on who they're regulated by. Some are regulated, while some aren't at all.
Well known and serious regulatory bodies for casinos online include:
- MGA (The Malta Gaming Authority)
- UKGC (UK Gambling Commission)
- SGA (Swedish Gambling Authority)
- DGA (Danish Gambling Authority)
Use common sense
Common sense will get you a long way before you go ahead and register a player account. You should care about whether or not your personal- and financial details, as well as money, are safe. Getting your money when you request a withdrawal, that the casino's regulated, that there's a customer service that responds to queries, and that you have access to responsible gambling tools are bare minimums.
After that, comes the "what's in it for me"-part. Is the bonus offer any good? Do they have games from the providers that you like?
Ok, great. So far, so good. You sign up, but.. Wait turns out they don’t support the only payment method you use for online gambling, or maybe you can’t even get a bonus because you've made a deposit using an e-wallet such as Neteller or Skrill.
Warning signs to look out for
Here are a few warning signs to look out for. If you come across any of these, thread carefully.
- Low withdrawal limits
- Not able to try games without creating an account/logging in first
- No easy/clear way of setting deposit limits or other responsible gambling tools.
- Generally little to no tools to assist you with Responsible Gambling
- Outspoken withdrawal pending time
- Openly allowing VPNs
- Being able to play with real money with no personal details added to the account
- Curacao license
Low withdrawal limits: This implies that the casino struggles with cash flow. Imagine you win a jackpot in the millions, only to discover you can’t withdraw more than €/$500 per week.
Not able to try games without creating an account/logging in first: This isn’t - again - a guarantee that the casino is bad, but historically some bad apples have used this tactic to hide that they’re using pirated games.
No easy way of setting deposit limits or other RG tools: Responsible gambling is a serious topic on all legitimate and serious online casinos. If the casino doesn’t make it easy (or doesn’t at all) for you to set limits on deposits, sessions, and allow self-exclusion, then steer away.
Outspoken withdrawal pending time: Putting it in writing that they won’t start to process your withdrawal before e.g. 48 hours is a huge, red flag. It’s a tactic used to stall, where the aim is that you cancel your withdrawal(s) and lose your money back to the casino.
Openly allowing VPNs: If a casino isn’t allowed to market towards, or offer their service in a specific region or different countries, there’s a reason for that. It’s clearly stated in the terms and conditions of every serious (and bad ones too) casino there is. Openly allowing VPNs allows you to circumvent this, and it can at any time be used against you to lock your account and seize your funds.
Being able to play with real money with no personal details added to account: If the casino doesn’t know who you are, but gladly takes your money, do you think you’ll get it back? Also, any casino not complying with Know Your Customer practices are the same ones that go down due to anti-money laundering and terrorist funding laws.
Curacao license: A warning sign, but not necessarily bad. Always do your research on casinos that are on a Curacao license. Words travel fast when they’re bad, and this is where our forum is your best friend.
Since 20217, mobile devices have consistently accounted for just above 50% of the world’s internet traffic (excluding tablets) according to statista.com - and keeps increasing.
Casinos no longer separate between a desktop- and a mobile product, rather they focus on streamlining the user experience so that players can enjoy them regardless of device. The only key difference between these is that desktop users have more space versus a mobile or tablet screen.
