One way to gain the most positive experience from an online casino is to take five minutes to go through their rules and policies, because the way in which an online casino operates can be quite different from how another conducts their business.
For example, when it comes to depositing
into your account, you may have been used to a casino that allows you to deposit
a minimum of just $/€/£2. 00, which is ideal if you are a lowroller who seldom
has any more cash to spare.
However, after signing up to a new one you
may find that their minimum deposit limit is much higher. This could really
stump you, so always check through each casino's banking policies. You can find
this information in the T's and C's section or in the Rules section. If you
can't find this info after searching yourself, simply contact the customer
support and they should be able to inform you of their current
deposit/withdrawal limits, which vary a great deal between today's
Players should also visit the cashier section to see what types
of banking methods are accepted. In some of the lesser known online casinos, you
might find that they accept 20 or more individual deposit methods, but they only
accept one or two withdrawal methods.
This can slow you down in the
future and can be extremely frustrating when you just want to get a hold of your
winnings. It just means that you will have to spend time signing up to a new
online payment solution. Therefore upon signing up, opt for a banking method
that processes both deposits and withdrawals, such as a credit card or
Some online casinos also take more time when processing
transactions, so you could be waiting much longer to receive your winnings from
some portals, whereas others will send you the money in just a few hours. The
kind of superior services that you may be accustomed to at one online casino may
be quite different to the services offered by other online casinos.
of the other most important things that you must be aware of (and which vary a
great deal between online casinos) are the wagering requirements that you must
adhere to when trying to claim your online casino bonus. This policy is
otherwise known as the playthrough requirement. You will find that with some
online casinos, all of the games count towards the wagering requirements, but at
other online casinos, it is only games like slots, scratchcards and instant win
games that count 100% towards your wagering requirements.
This can be
especially annoying if you think that you have wagered 30x times your bonus
amount, only to find that the games didn't count at all towards completing your
bonus. Again, the best thing to do in this case is to read through the bonus
terms and conditions or if you are still unsure, contact the support. The
support should also be able to inform you of how much you have left to wager
before your bonus is complete and before you can start withdrawing your
These are just some of the main rules that you should make
yourself aware of when signing up to one of today's online casinos. These rules
can be instrumental in deciding whether or not you should sign up to the casino
or find somewhere else to play.
