How do I Play?
Casino games can be Java-based, Flash or Shockwave based, or you may need to download the software directly to your computer. Java -based software requires no software download, but Flash may require a plug-in that you can get from Macromedia.com 90% of all computer users already have the Flash plugin on their computer, and many casinos will provide a link to the Macromedia download should you need it. The casinos that require you to download their software, typically have better graphics, faster games, are more secure, and are the best choice for “modem” users, so the extra time waiting for a “modem” download is well worth it! If all else fails, almost every casino will gladly send you a free CD – Just Ask!
Once downloaded or ready to play, all casinos offer you a guest or play for fun option if you would like to try the games out before committing “real money“.
What kind of Bonuses can I Expect to See?
With the growing competition and the expansive selection of best UK online casinos, you’ll find an endless pool of bonuses and “match bonuses”. Some casinos will give you money without even making a deposit, while others have deposit requirements from the start. Many offer you a 100-150% match bonus, meaning they will match your initial deposit. We suggest looking for casinos that offer continued bonuses throughout the year, since these can add up very fast to lots of Free Cash!
Typically casinos will offer many bonuses, but please be aware that there are usually restrictions in removing this “free cash” and you will most likely be asked to wager the bonus amount many times before you may “cash out”.
Making Your First Deposit
Where do I start? This can be a very difficult task, or one made very easy by the quality of the Casino your playing at. If you have a problem funding your account, contact their customer service, if it’s still a problem, you should probably moved on to a “better equipped” Casino that pays more attention to its patrons.
Credit Cards: Visa and Mastercard are a typical way to fund your casino account. Recently though, this has become a major problem in the US, as banks will reject charges made on your card in an attempt to fund a casino account. The Solution: use one of the “alternative methods” the casino recommends, and you may find yourself with more “free cash” or “bonuses”. This is due to the high cost of “chargebacks” and “processing fees” that casino sustains on a daily basis. They would rather you fund your account using one of these alternative methods, and they typically will reward you for doing so.
Game and Game Quality
You’ll find you favorite games at the online casinos. Many casinos offer 50-100 games! This presents an opportunity play whatever you like whenever you like. Can’t make it to Reno, Vegas or Atlantic City, then turn on your computer and play in minutes…. Better yet, you’ll never have to wait around a crowded table. And for you smokers and non-smokers – well you get the idea, you’ll be in the environment of your choice!
