    I know that there is alot of good info on this site about what to look for with online casinos to be safe, general important consideration information, and other resources such as blacklists and trusted casinos.

    I thought though, that it would be interesting to ask all the experienced individuals on these message boards what things stand out at a specific casino that will persuade YOU to play there.

    Basically, i'm sure alot of people have different approaches to what they are looking at when they decide to play, whether it be a specific promotion, game, payment stuff, combination of several factors...whatever.

    What kind of features, promotions, etc. entices YOU to play somewhere?... whether it be long term or just checking out an online casino?

    What kind of approach do YOU take? Do you always look for a specific set of criteria quality?

    Hiya: For me, and a lot of others, that play Table Games, the table limits are the most important. Why? Because no matter what game you play, there are going to be losing streaks, and going to be losing sessions. With the proper Bankroll, and money management guidlines, and disipline, you can almost always overcome this.

    But, if the Table Limits are to Low, then having a larger bankroll is useless, and the Casino has effectively elimanated most of your Staying Power. ie, the ability to get thru losing streaks.

    It does not matter how fast they pay out, if you almost never Win.

    Here's my criteria;

    1) The casino must not have a bad reputation, or I wont play.

    2) Good bonuses - that's how I've made profit for 8 years.
    Good = preferably max WR of Bonus x 30 on slots (cashable, not phantom)

    3) Games are a slight factor - I do play some casinos just because I like their games (even if their bonuses aren't that good).

    4) Payment speed is not a big issue for me (after 8 winning years I have quite a big gambling float!), but I do appreciate those casinos who pay quickly with no hassles.

    The casino which ticks all my boxes & more is Ladbrokes. They have daily promotions with bonus WR of only Bx4, hence I play there every day.

    Online gambling for me is slots principally. And most of the casinos I play at have competitors with the same software. Good loyalty comps keeps me with all my $$ at one casino for each platform. Decent repeat bonus offers, although I play without bonuses as well.

    All casinos have problems, but prompt, courteous and efficient staff to solve these issues will lead me to choose one casino over another.

    I don't want 5 hours over three days involved in a dispute about crediting a bonus of $12.50. Or ping pong emails to resolve a simple issue.

    Trustworthy to pay me, of course. But as long as it's within a week to hit my bank account from my ewallet, I'm groovy as long as the other factors are stellar.

    I want frontline, livechat support that has the ability to resolve issues, not just forward me on to another department.

    I play to relax, to have to spend extended time resolving issues that software should have prevented in the first place is not enticing.

    Good customer support who are friendly and courteous. My favourites for this are 3dice and Intercasino. As they always make me feel valued and welcome, which means a lot. If customer support in a casino are rude to me, I tend to not go back there again.

    Fast withdrawals, 3dice has the fastest, hits your neteller account same second the withdrawal button is pressed. Bodog is the next fastest, Ladbrokes and 32red are also pretty quick.

    A casino which doesn't go over the top with stupid I.D. checks. Preferably one that does I.D. checks in a hassle-free customer friendly sane way, without the player having to send in lots of unnecessary documents and finding they're not acceptable, and having to pay 76 for a new passport, when they don't need one grrrr.

    Bug-free software, that doesn't take up too much room on your computer or keeps crashing. Also one that refunds your bet if it does malfunction...

    I like a casino that feels like home, somewhere where you could walk around in your slippers cause it feels so comfortable to be there. Intercasino does this for me, as does 3dice. I also love the Bodog and Ladbrokes flash sites, they are really well laid out and have a comfy sunday afternoon chilling out vibe about them.

    Good videopoker, 3dice and bodog have a lot of choice for videopoker and they both have 10/7 double bonus, which if played optimally has a longterm payback of over 100%. However it has to be played optimally, the wizard of odds has a good strategy table for this game on his website. I find though this game requires a strong stomach. As it can really test your faith at times.

    I play joker poker at intercasino, as it seems to have the best paytable for this game online, it isn't full pay, but when I checked on the wizard of odds it seemed to be the best one to go for. Nowhere online seems to offer a paytable that is full pay for either joker poker or deuces wild, which is a shame, but I like the games and I like the layout and graphics of intercasino's videopoker, so I can happily sit there for hours playing it there.

    I don't like playing videopoker at microgaming much, I don't really like the paytables there and it is quite expensive... and very streaky. The only videopoker game I like on microgaming software is All Aces, which has a good return in the longterm, but like double bonus 10/7 you need a strong stomach for the ups and downs in this...

    I don't have a lot of money, so having minimal table limits I can afford is important to me. I try to avoid playing table games that have a betsize over 1.

    I play table games in these casinos:

    Blackjack in William Hill, 3dice, Ladbrokes and bodog as they all have minimum bets ranging from 10p at William Hill to 1 at the others.

    Roulette at 32red mobile, wildjack mobile as they both have minimum bets of 20p on their mobile casinos. Casino Tropez, their minimum bet for roulette is 10p, they also have french roulette at 10p. Ladbrokes have a minimum bet of 25p on roulette and William Hill has a minimum bet of 10p.

    I play 3 card poker, texas hold 'em, red dog and carribean stud at 3dice as the table minimum for these games is 10p.

    Intercasino table games are too expensive for me, which is gutting as I really like them, but I still play the videopoker and slots there, which I can afford.

    I also play live roulette at Dublinbet, they are a landbased casino, and you play roulette on a proper live table, you can see people placing bets on the same roulette table you're wagering on, is pretty cool. However their table minimums for evenbets, dozens & columns are too expensive. But you can place bets on double streets, streets, squares, splits and numbers for 0.50 euro which is alright. They also process withdrawals pretty fast and their customer support is friendly...

    My main criteria is affordable table minimums, fast withdrawals, good customer service, I.D. checks which don't require you to go out and buy a passport at 76, good choice of games, and smooth bugfree software...

    (another novel post sorry...)

    I've been playing www.onlineplayersassociation.co.uk online casinos for nearly nine years now and you can trust my selection! It really is fun and can be especially lucrative if you put your mind to it and take advantage of promotional offers. If you play mainly for entertainment purposes then you really won't be disappointed with the range of online casinos available.

    Well, aren't you the crafty little spammer boy? Much more on the ball than our run of the mill, every day spammers. How creative of you to hide your linky under the words online casinos. Sorry to say, it still makes you an asshole who promotes shitty casinos and then spams the net for traffic you can't get on your own. :rolleyes:

    Seriously, that's a good post, it's nice to see that you have basically sussed out the best values.

    I wonder if Jasminebed would care to share her preferred casinos and why... for that matter anyone who can share their favorites with reasons other than "because I win there" or "because I feel lucky", I'd certainly be interested in reading.

    The OPA finally rears its head up once again. :thumbsup:

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.

    Good ol' Mike Craig and his antics? Don't get me started here.

    I edited mine Rob...it still shows online casinos, but the link is Imanasshole.com :laugh:

    I knew I'd heard of the OPA before.....bingo!! You know what's funny? If you go to this wanker's profile, he lists himself as a "marketing executive". Ha ha.....going around posting spam doesn't make you a marketing executive. Duh!! :laugh:

    A good reputation & player friendly
    A So So Fast Cash outs up to 4 days is good for me.
    A good Support team If I email them I better hear from them in a two day period or they are %#(* or if you see they are working with the player in getting things resolved they are good.
    They add new things time to time for the players interests and not the same old thing
    And Trust If you don't have trust in them don't play at that casino.
    Livechat support that knows more.:lolup:

    Actually, this is probably a hired spammer from India. He's opened another account at a webmaster forum today. Hasn't posted yet though.

    Yep, plenty of dirt on the OPA in the forum and on the main site (use the search function).

    Sure Spear. I love 3Dice not only for the excellent support and instant payouts to my moneybookers, but for its free tourneys and chat, and my fellow players there. I know that each of us is a person to the support staff and to Enzo, and valued customers. 3Dice Reps interact with the players beyond resolving issues, and see that we have a good time. The slots are novel, except maybe their new baby OldGlory, a faithful rendition of a casino classic.

    32Red is the best of any Microgaming I've played at. Prompt, courteous Livechat, a good match offer every month (only $32, but I am a low roller), and the added plus of the slotmeister tourney.

    Intercasino sometimes for the novel games, but since their revision of the monthly match bonuses, I don't feel they offer very attractive matches anymore, and have not made any deposits there in the last couple of months.

    Inetbet offers good coupons, and get most of my RTG play. I am not happy with the email only option for support, as I have not found their response time especially good, but I think at this point I've asked most of the questions I need to, and I do like the Classic Slots there, especially Bank on It and Inferno 7s.

    When I was still able to play at Rivals, I was thrilled with Slotocash. I like the slot variety with Rival, and I had great support from them. Good enough that I went before the withdrawal from the Canadian market just to thank them for their support over the time that I played with them. Heads and shoulders above any other Rival IMO, although there are a couple of I haven't played.
