    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to online gambling, I do live in Las Vegas so I am quite good at Blackjack. I was just wanting to try out online as I do not like Casinos that much.

    My question is for you players out there
    What is the best online Casino for US players and single deck Blackjack?
    What is the best way to deposit money and to retrieve winnings?
    What has the best bonuses?
    What Casino should I watch out for being scams?

    I was looking into Golden Casino which looked good. But it did seem like some people were having problems with delayed checks, Any thoughts on this Casino?

    Also how different is it went you play on the site for just fun (no money) too when you give them money, Does it get a lot harder to win or is it pretty accurate to real money play?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    atacat

    Don't play online without a bonus.

    Don't expect a fair game.

    Don't listen to affiliates pretending to be players.

    Don't listen to PlayTech (Casino) employees.

    Don't fail to copy bonus T+Cs.

    Don't fail at math.

    This is not easy but I'll try to answer them the best I could.

    Best Casino? Try looking here... http://www.casinomeister.com/casinos.php
    - You'll never go wrong with those casinos there. Not sure if any is listed accepting US Players.
    - Best way to deposit and get your money back is via EcoCard (at this point of time)
    - Best Bonuses? That depends on your choice of games you like best. The ones which is withdrawable + don't have a max on what you can win is the best bonuses out there.
    - There are LOADS of casinos out there which are scammers. Please do google them & check the forums before depositing at a specific casino. There's a list of ROGUED casinos here : http://www.casinomeister.com/rogue/

    Golden Casino is not a wise choice if you asked anyone around here. They have been oweing people money since quite a long time ago and till this day have not resolved the problem. I personally wouldn't advice you to play there at all.

    Again, please do look at the Accredited Casino list for good Casinos to play at and which you don't have to fear being cheated or something.

    When you're in Play Money mode, it seems that everything is a lot easier to win. Everything comes in your favor most of the time. I might be wrong on this but that's what I experience.

    In Real Money mode, everything changes. It's a lot different and would most probably be almost like gambling in the real casino. When you're in Play Money, you tend to not care about your decisions as they are just play money, but when you're in REAL Money mode, you're playing with your own hard-earned cash, thus making mistakes and etc are a lot more likely. Just remember 1 thing, PARLAY System doesn't work on online casinos as there are hundreds of players (if not more) playing at once and the RNG (random number generator) keeps going. You might lose 10 hands in a row while someone else across the world might be winning 10 hands in a row. Unlike playing in a casino in Vegas where there's only that many players playing all at once.

    I hope these answers are what you're looking for. Good luck in playing online but here's 1 BIG Advice... Don't play online if you're living in Vegas. You'll be giving the casinos 1 more chance to take your money and not give it back if you win. There are cases of casinos claiming that it's illegal to gamble online in Vegas and they have confiscated the winnings which is in THOUSANDS!

    But it's your call anyways... Good Luck!!!

    As a U.S. player you picked a bad time to enter online gambling. There is trouble everywhere for U.S. players for deposit and cashing out, and its getting worse all the time. More for cashing out. The Treasury dept is about to implement new regulations that may very well shut it down completely for U.S. players. I think you live in one of the 11 states that made online gambling illegal so that rules out all MicroGaming casinos, they don't allow the 11 states; however in Nevada you can gamble online within the state itself but I'm not sure of those details. I know, no Casino in Nevada is running an online gambling operation. MG casinos have the best single deck BJ but you're in one of their banned states (I think). RTG software is available to the banned states and is probably best at Inetbet or Bodog (new intel on Bodog may make them a bad bet right now. I think they are overloaded, being held down (head under water) by the DOJ who wants to bust them with a great passion) but your still going to have cash-out problems. RTG does not have single deck BJ available anywhere I know of. For depositing and withdrawing - Ecocard, but its going to cost you both ways. Their are others ways. Call the Casino. Cashing out is being done mostly by check (very slow).

    You need to check out a different part of the Forum, message one of the sys-ops or the Casinomeister for details. I don't follow bonuses so can't help you there. Your biggest scams are out of Costa Rica; such as the Virtual group. Check out the rogue casino section. Golden Casino is part of Golden Palace, the latter of which has a notorious rep. . Golden Casino has different software so they can take U.S. players. Golden Palace has Playtec software and U.S. players cannot play any Casino with Playtec software. I don't know about the Golden Casino rep. All are having increasing problems of Paying out.

    If your not aware of UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) you'd better do some reading around. Your money could get stuck out there very soon!

    Hi Atacat
    I think if knew then, as in where you are at the moment- new to online casino's, what i know now then i would suggest you do not play online, it is to unregulated and hard to get a hearing if you have a drama, and know one really knows if these guys play fair, we have no real way to check.

    i think you will find online bj very different to a real casino, i am playing now and lost eleven hands in a row then lost six hands then eleven hands again all in the space of 10 mins, if that happened at a land casino you would be out with the` razor blade.

    Then if you are lucky enough to get a big win, you gota get them to pay up, I won $150,000 and the casino wouldnt pay.

    But your not going to have any of these problems, cause your not going to gamble online are you lol.

    Lucky
