How to: Online Casino FAQs

The idea behind these pages is to try and pass on things that we have learned from our personal experiences from playing online casinos since the beginning of this astounding form of online entertainment (since our inception in 1998). This, of course, reflects our opinions – would you expect less? The online casino landscape is dynamic and changes rapidly, sometimes for the better – sometimes for worse, as we have noted recently how some jurisdictions are initiating draconian regulations that are not player-friendly. Additionally, there are still bad places to go, but more and more safe places are also. While we’re still waiting for the “perfect casino,” several very professional operations are out there, some of whom are now publicly listed companies and under the eyes of the stock exchange.

The key, of course, is not only to find a safe and reputable place to play but one that supports your habits and requirements. Although many casinos have similar games, as you’ll discover when you read on, each tends to have a different way of operating, different plus points, and of course, minus points that will impact the player experience. If you are new to all this online casino malarky, I’d suggest you read up on the stuff you should know before depositing first!

A Little About Us

Probably important to let you know who you’re dealing with first, eh! I go under the online moniker of Simmo! (despite my, erm, “dodgy” forum avatar, right, this is a serious guide, in case you wondered!) and I am a moderator at the popular Casinomeister player forum. I’ve been playing casually at online casinos for around three years and have played at a whole host of different places, thankfully primarily good ones! My requirements from a good casino are good entertaining slots, fast cashouts and fast, efficient support who listen to what I want. The first is easy to find, the second less so, and the third is even rarer! I’m an optimist, so, naturally, I should think that overall, the online casino world is in relatively good shape now, especially compared to how it was! There are still rogues out there, but it’s become much easier to find out who you can trust, as these pages hope to demonstrate. There are plenty of good, if not great, casino operations operating in jurisdictions like Gibraltar and the Isle Of Man take regulation very seriously. Plus, there are forums like Casinomeister where a good balance of players have a voice and where most operators hang out, handle complaints, and generally garner feedback.

I started out playing Video Poker, but I am more of a slots fan now. While this provides a higher level of entertainment for me, it is also higher-risk, so I have developed strategies to help manage what I spend and look after my budget. Aside from deciding the right casino to play, this is arguably the most critical piece of information I intend to provide here, so I would check out the ” How To Manage Your Gambling Budget” section before you leave. I’m sure it’ll be handy for players who sometimes get carried away.

In my moderator and player’s role at Casinomeister, I have seen a lot happening in casino-land over the past couple of years. I’ve seen casinos cheating players, players cheating casinos, good casinos come, bad casinos come and go, and plenty of exciting player experiences. I am hoping that many of the issues faced by players there are dealt with here.
