US player looking for advice

    Howdy! I've been trying to read as much as possible about this, and I think I'm almost ready to try some online gambling, but here are a few things that are still up in the are for me:

    I'm in the US, Ohio to be specific.
    I would like some advice on payment options,
    online casinos,
    and if I'd have any problems getting the casino to cash out if I was using a 'betting system'
    (yeah, I know all betting systems will lose out eventually, but do casinos look at your betting history and do some refuse to pay based on that history?)

    I was looking at Bodog, River Nile, and Lucky Nugget. River Nile and Lucky Nugget are under the Gibraltar jurisdiction, Bodog I'm not sure, maybe Kahnawake?
    Give me advice or stories :)

    4 words: Don't play at Bodog! Just do a search for "bodog" on the forum and you'll see why ;)

    As far as "systems"....if you insist on using one, just be on the safe side and play with your own money and don't take a bonus. That way they have no reason to confiscate any winnings :)

    Only 'rogue' casinos would do that. Stick to recommended reputable casino only.
    Good casinos could still ban you (unlikely), but they will pay you first, then ban you.
    Casino's will generally welcome 'system' players with open arms - as you admit yourself, they don't work in the long run (unless you are using bonuses).

    What sort of 'system' do you have anyway? Blackjack? Roulette? Slots?

    Assuming you play Blackjack......Obviously, it is impossible to count cards with online casinos so no problem there as far as online casinos giving you a difficult time for that reason. No legitimate and reputable online casino should be giving you a hassle for the betting strategy you use because technically all strategies/systems are supposed to lose in the long run. But I will say this: I believe all online casinos use additional software in conjunction with the random number generator to adjust to your betting style or to determine what patterns you lose more often with (and use that pattern more often!) Recently, I've seen the same win/lose patterns I've have difficulty with in five straight blackjack sessions. But that's not to say that you'll have the same experiences I've had but just be mindful of it.

    Thanks everyone for your advice! I am still playing with 'fun' money, but when I am experimenting with roulette and baccarat. I am experimenting with the martingale system (sort of) but betting on both player/banker or red/black and then betting on the opposite after a run of 4. Also, working out if I hit a bad streak to start over and cut losses after a certain point that is to be determined :)

    I was just worried about a casino looking at my betting history and not paying because of the 'robot' betting, if that is even a term, even though all robot betting will eventually lose in the long run.

    Any advice on US funds? If I get up and want to cash out, will the casino's paper check be accepted by US banks? or wire transfer? or such?

    Again, thanks for the conversation!

    I prefer electronic payments that way you know the funds ar backed with real cash. Personally I'd open a separate bank account separate from your primary bank account for security reasons. I talked to bank a couple of weeks ago and it was only $10 to open the account. You could also use the bank account for electronic transfers.

    However, ideally, you should open a Use My Wallet account available through casino support if they offer it especially if you plan on making deposits and withdrawals at many different casinos. This keeps your personal financial data in one secure location instead of spreading it across several casinos. Never put all your eggs in one basket, especially when it comes to the Internet.

    Ask the casino your playing at to send you a quicktender invitation. Quicktender is also use my wallet.

    Its the only way to get paid in a reasonable amount of time in the good ol' US.
