What is an Internet Casino?
An Internet, or Online Casino is software which allows you
to play casino games on your computer whilst connected to
the Internet. You may usually play for fun or for real (by
making a cash deposit with the casino operator's bank.
is a Download?
There are two main types of Internet Casino (a) those which
you download software from the Web, install it on your own
computer, and then reconnect to actually play the games, or
(b) those which you play directly with your browser connecting
to the site and for which no download is required. Download
casinos generally have better graphics, more complex game
options and multi-player interaction.
Where are the casinos located?
Online casinos, or more accurately the servers running the
casinos, can be located in any country in which it is legal.
Some countries will give an operating license to a casino
at the drop of a hat, whilst others, such as The Isle of Man
have more stringent rules. This is the reason this site only
recommends sites which are in British jurisdiction or which
are run by reputable UK companies.
do I start playing?
Take a look around this site and choose a casino you like
the sound of for all reasons; the games, playability, interaction,
safety, security and brand. Then go to the site via the link
given and download and install the software if necessary.
Then run the software and you will be lead through a routine
of 'opening and account' (often even if you do not want to
play for real money).
do I make deposits and withdrawals?
This varies from casino to casino and you should read the
small print of each casino carefully. Usually you can make
deposits with a credit or debit card, by cheque or by bank
transfer. Withdrawals can be made on a credit card to the
amount of your last deposit and the balance by cheque or bank
transfer (for which a charge is sometimes made).
How safe and secure are Internet casinos?
The majority are safe and secure, but it is always the bad
apples that upset the cart. And that is what this site is
all about. Read it thoroughly and you'll find out which can
be trusted, which will look after your data and which will
give you the best customer service. Generally speaking, if
you stick with well-known and trusted brands, you'll be safe.
Are the casinos fair?
Again, if you stick with the casinos recommended on this site,
you can be sure the games (and software) are fair. Most casinos
use software that has been rigorously tested and are audited
by large International accountancy companies.
Bonuses may be given by a casino as an enticement for you
to join and play at their casino with real money. These are
most usually given to you when you join for the first time
(such as matching your first deposit), however they may be
given for any reason as part of a promotion (such as New Year,
Father's day, etc.). Stringent rules often apply as to how
your bonus is paid and more importantly when and how you can
Are regular winners barred from casinos?
Not from good casinos.
What if I have a problem with a casino?
Try and sort it out with the casino in a courteous manner
(never resort to abuse it will get you nowhere) using their
