Main Digest

Being physically disabled all too 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 abled bodied, veterans, the elderly and persons with disabilities.


The reason for this overnight popularity is simple, the world wide web is mainly accessible to anyone with an internet connection, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Feeling bored or can't sleep? Simply boot up your computer and be chatting or game playing with people from all over the world in minutes. No more logistics in organizing a few hours at your local bingo hall or maneuvering a wheelchair through a crowded venue to access a slot machine at a club or casino.

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 of the online casinos will advertise that they are "safe" but the best way to find out for sure 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 out a lot of relevant information regarding the seal of approval.

Some different sites provide certification for online casinos with varying degrees of 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 that cover every aspect of an online casino's operation, after rigorous testing.

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

These bonuses always carry conditions and usually have to be played right through before any winnings can be withdrawn.

It is always vital that you check all rules and conditions thoroughly 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.
