Online gambling tips

Posted by betlover on Mar 21, 2010 in online gambling


For U.S. customers, we do not recommend trying to use your credit cards or debit cards to fund opening a casino account. Most U.S. based credit cards issuers (banks) will not accept these transactions from online casinos. This is primarily because most casinos reside outside of the bank’s jurisdiction and online credit card transactions from casinos are considered high risk.

This is actually for your protection and it is a very normal & legitimate practice for banks with some online activity. Do not be discouraged by this and realize that there are many other very safe & reliable (and better) means to fund your opening an account.

You can fund directly from a checking account, bank wires, or through various other convenient methods such as NETeller, Firepay, Citadel, or other respected deposit entities. Most reputable online casinos provide you with several options within their ‘banking’ module and provide extra bonuses for using these options as well. These alternative methods are highly recommended, safe, secure and reliable.


Carefully read the casino terms and conditions before accepting the deposit bonuses. This is usually found in the ‘Promotions’ area within the casino websites. Most casinos require considerable ‘play through’ amounts of the total deposit plus the bonus amount.

For example, if you deposit $100 and receive a $100 bonus ($200 total), you will sometimes have to wager up to 20 times the total amount (i.e. $4000 in total playing) before you can consider cashing out. This is a very common practice for casinos to keep you playing longer and is perfectly legitimate. Keep in mind though that you have the right at any time to refuse the deposit ‘bonus’ and just play with your deposit with no limitations on cashing out. You just have to notify the casino before playing with any amounts.

The Fine Print

Each casino or online poker room has their own specific ‘terms and conditions’ regarding all of your play, deposits, bonuses, and cash out procedures.

Make sure to carefully read these terms and conditions before depositing any money. All of the casinos we will present on this website are legitimate, safe, secure and well established organizations. However, look for any limitations on cashing out or usage of your bonus money. Do your research and thoroughly read through the casino site operation as a whole. Look for trusted names at the bottom of their site and any supported organizations that assist in maintaining the integrity of online fair gaming practices.
