Casino Gambling Information
CASINO SAFE GAMBLING
Most casinos will provide bonuses for first-time deposits only.
However, many offer a loyalty program to reward players for consistent play.
Like those in any land-based casino, these comp programs track every dollar you
wager and reward you with a predetermined number of comp points that are
redeemable for cash, credits, or, in some cases, vacations, collectibles and
other prizes. If this sort of thing appeals to you, then once you�ve found a
compatible casino, stick with it. You�ll be surprised at how quickly those
points add up.
If you�ve made it this far then congratulations, you can put
that all research behind you, you�ve found your online gaming home. Now that
you�re ready to register, I strongly suggest providing the casino with one
email address, and only one. Even if you have several email accounts, I
recommend setting up one more to be used exclusively for all your online gaming
activity, be it at one casino or many. If you give the casino more than one,
even by mistake, you run the risk of being locked out. It only makes sense that,
with millions of dollars at stake, the casinos must watch out for signs of
fraud. Consequently, players who hold multiple accounts are often unwittingly
flagged as potential bonus abusers.
Another crucial piece of advice would be for you to know your
games. Basic knowledge will substantially increase your odds for success. A
tremendous advantage online players have over players at land-based casinos is
the ability to keep strategy books, cards, and/or tips on hand. Better yet, you
can keep an online strategy program running in the background to guide you
through a variety of gaming scenarios. Informed decisions result in more
profitable game play.
Along the same lines, if a casino gives you the option of
checking your �player history,� do so. This record includes information on
every bet you make and the outcome of every hand (including yours vs. the
dealer�s). Not only can you monitor exactly how much you�re spending, you
can also analyze your play, identify your weaknesses and improve your game. If
there is no online player history option available, a pad of paper and a pen
will do in a pinch.
Finally, take a screen shot after every win, no matter how big
or small. Should your computer crash or you drop your Internet connection,
you�ll have solid evidence of your success. To do this, keep the winning hand
on your screen, hold down the �Alt� key and hit �PrtSc� (Print Screen).
Then open your graphics program (i.e. �Paint�), go to �Edit� and choose
�Paste.� Save the image to your hard drive. When it comes to cashing out, a
good offence is always good defense.
These tips cover the basics of online gaming but are by no means all-inclusive.
Make it a part of your regular practice to consult forums, message boards and
customer support and you can�t go wrong. Best of luck!
