As the popularity of online casinos and slots sites continues to grow, new players can sometimes become a little confused with the sheer volume of sites that appear once you type ‘online casino’ into their search.
In this article, we hope to make things a whole lot clearer for those that are new to the world of online casinos and those that might be looking for a new site to play at.
First Things First
For anyone considering playing at an online casino the first thing they need to know is that the online gambling market is a very competitive one which means that some new online sites are simply not as good as others, just like any other online site you might be thinking of spending some money choosing the best value is important.
Saying that there are many good online casino sites about but then there are those great ones like Fruityking.co.uk that go that extra mile, listen to what their players want and consistently deliver. Being able to stand the test of time in such a competitive market is a testament in itself to the quality of any online site so we are going to look at some of the important factors that help an online casino stay ahead of the game.
- A site needs to be legal in order to operate, so it’s imperative that it holds a current gambling license issued by a reputable Gambling Commission and/or Gaming Authority.
- The gaming software should be supplied by only the major players in the industry to ensure the quality of the games you will be playing. Names like Microgaming and NetEnt to name just two need to be present.
- Games choices should be wide and varied to make sure that there is something for everyone, and there should also be a good selection of live casino games on offer. Live games take place in real-time and are streamed from a brick and mortar venue straight to your home. The dealers and croupiers are also real people and players can interact with each other and their hosts via the chat feature on their screens. Live games are about as close as anyone can get to step through the doors of a land-based casino and are well worth keeping a little of your bankroll to the side for these exciting games.
- The banking options on offer should be those that are tried and tested as well as other options like the pay by phone option for those that want the cost of their games either added onto their monthly phone bill or deducted from their ‘pay as you go’ balance.
- Your chosen online casino must only use the latest security software in order to keep your private details confidential and the RNG (the Random Number Generator*) should also be regularly audited by an independent company.
- There needs to be a professional dedicated customer support service in place as well as pages offering information for self-help.
In fact, the whole site should be clear, transparent with no hidden small print. The bonuses and promotional offers must be generous with reasonable restrictions attached to them in order to make them worthwhile, and regular players must not be forgotten in the rush to draw new players through the online casinos doors.
*The Random Number Generator is what spins the virtual reels and wheels, rolls the virtual dice and deals with the virtual cards.
Of course, the above factors are only some of those that would go to make your personal favourite as many online casinos are themed and those themes will appeal to some players and not others. What is safe to say is once you have found the online casino that suits you that you are in for a great time immersing yourself in the games whenever and wherever you happen to be.
