Guide for Betting for New Casino Players

What to know before choosing an online casino 

Every gambler loves to have fun but with the best experience possible for the money they are paying. Most likely, they want an even greater experience than they can afford. Don’t we all? With so many options to choose from, many features must be taken into consideration for the gambler before making the choice. Every gambler has questions they want answered by the casino they choose because different casinos have different offers with some similar generic ones. A gambler must find a balance between their basic need from a casino and some value adding benefits they may be interested in such as bonuses. 

As a new gambler with all these online casinos throwing themselves at you, it is important to know what to look out for so that you can maximise the fun you will have engaging with them. Here are a few things to keep your eye out for. 

The available bonuses

Everybody loves free stuff but free stuff that comes at no cost in most cases. Online casinos are aware of this and have many bonuses available to new players and existing players. It is not enough to get players to sign up. They must also be maintained as they use the online casino. Some bonuses include welcome bonuses, deposit bonuses, no deposit bonuses and free spins. No deposit bonuses are one of the more popular ones for players, like the ones available at these casinos, because they do not have to spend any money to play which deposit bonuses often match the value a player deposits at the casino. For many of these bonuses, there are high wagering requirements which makes it difficult or next to impossible to withdraw winnings. The motive behind them is always to encourage players to enjoy games within the online casino. 

The available games

Games! Games! Games! That is the question?  The heart of every gambler is drawn to the games they can enjoy on these platforms. Besides having a variety of the broad categories such as blackjack, slots, roulette and baccarat, online casinos should offer modifications such as VR, AR, 3D and movie themed slots. They need to be up to speed with the modern developments in the gaming industry. Not all developers offer the same value in gaming experience so gamblers need to loo at whether the casino has some lucrative developers such as NetEnt. This will guarantee a flawless gaming experience that will increase the value of the user experience. 

The UI and design

Ever entered a store to buy something? When you enter the store, you discover you have no idea where to find this item. Clueless, you look around the store for labels or directions to items. The same applies to the website for online casinos. It should be easy to navigate and find any information that a gambler is looking for whether it is to sign up or what free bonuses are available. Games available should also be easy to recognise on the website. Time is off the essence so a website should easily load pages quickly. With all these in order, a gambler can start the fun as soon as possible. 

The security

The internet is plagued with many frauds and fraudulent activity and casinos are not invulnerable to it. Gamblers should verify whether the website has SSL encryptions that make sure that information shared on the site is safe from intruders. Licences also add legitimacy to an online casino and offer some level of guarantee that a gambler is in the right hands when gambling. Payment methods available like credit cards, eWallets and bitcoin should all provide safety during transactions to and from the casino. Losing money to the casino may not be so bad but losing money fraudulently may spoil a gambler’s casino experience.


Gamblers do not have to know everything about online casinos but they need to know some things that will help them make the best of online casinos. It is important to take note of the security, games offered, the UI and design of the website and the bonuses. These things impact the way a gambler walks away from their online casino experience therefore their eyes must be wide open when looking out for these things.
