Beginner's Tips prior to Playing Online

Think First: Prior to beginning the thrilling ride of gambling online, you should ensure you have all the information possible about online gambling sites, how to protect yourself and ensure that you understand the rules/terms and conditions at each site.

Trust: Once you have chosen a casino, it is a good idea to thoroughly read through the rules and information on their site. Check for their validation including Price Waterhouse Coopers (Visit PricewaterhouseCoopers web site for more information: PWC.COM) and the eCogra Player's Seal of Approval. Once you feel you can trust the site, read through their deposit and withdrawal methods. You will want to examine the payment/withdrawal options, fees associated and time period for withdrawals.

Bonuses: One final thing to consider is when you are offered a bonus, you need to be sure to understand the playthrough requirements and amounts they will allow you to cashin from those bonuses. If you don't follow the site's rules, there is a good chance you won't be allowed to cashin your winnings.

It is always important to check a casino site's validation before choosing to deposit.
All of the casinos on have been properly tested and assured as safe.
The following are examples of what to look for in a casino's validation-

eCOGRA Player's Seal of Approval-
awarded to those casinos which have achieved compliance with eCOGRA'S high standards and demonstrated that:

# The games are fair
# The casino operates honestly and behaves responsibly
# Monetary deposits are safe and winning bets are paid in a timely manner

Accredited sites are subject to regular monitoring of their operation. Whilst eCOGRA makes it's best endeavours, no representation or warranty can be given that the operation of any games at any given site is at all times in accordance with the eCOGRA requirements. Therefore eCOGRA cannot assume responsibility for consequences resulting from the use of any Internet gaming site bearing the eCOGRA seal. eCOGRA is not liable to any person or group of persons, firm, company or entity for losses of any description that a user of an accredited site may suffer.

Another one to look for is the ICRA-
The Internet Content Rating Association is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to protect children from potentially harmful material.
