Definition

Online Casino
An Online casino, also known as a virtual casino or an Internet casino, is an online version of traditional ("bricks and mortar") casinos. An online casino enables gamblers to play and wager on casino games via the Internet. Some online casinos claim higher payback percentages for slot machine games, and some publish payout percentage audits on their websites.

Main Digest

Being physically disabled often means it is virtually impossible to attend some entertainment venues such as clubs, sports events, and land-based casinos. When the Internet became so hugely popular, gaming and casino-style gambling websites also became increasingly popular pastimes for both able-bodied, veterans, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.

Safe Online Casinos

With the thousands of online casinos available on the internet, it can seem like a jungle to the first-time player looking for a safe place to enjoy the excitement of online gambling. Of course, all online casinos will advertise they are "safe." Still, the best way to find out is to look around the web, read as many reviews as possible, and check out the online player's forums, where other internet gamblers have posted comments about the various online casinos available.

Most of the more reputable online casinos carry a certification from one of the major internet watchdog sites, and these certifications can generally be trusted.

First, check that an online casino that displays a seal of approval is genuine by checking the website of the approving body. There it is possible to find a lot of relevant information regarding the seal of approval.

Some sites provide certification for online casinos with varying standards.

An online casino website with a certificate of gaming excellence might have won the rating simply by having a great range of games, while customer service and payout times may be low.

The best bet is to trust certificates covering every aspect of an online casino's operation after rigorous testing.

Standard conditions in most online casinos often involve bonuses received when a player deposits cash into the online casino account.

These bonuses always carry conditions and must be played before any winnings can be withdrawn.

You must thoroughly check all rules and conditions before playing.

Remember - Game of Chance players don't lose because they never win; they lose because they don't quit when they're ahead.
