How do I start playing?
To start playing at an online casino you can either download the casino’s software and register as a player. Or if you’d rather not download anything, you can choose a casino that allows you to play directly in your browser. To play with real money for a chance to win prizes, enter the cashier, and make a deposit
How old do I have to be to play at an online casino?
It depends on your country of residence. In the UK it’s 18 years old. The U.S has different age restrictions from state to state but it’s generally 18 or 21. If you’re unsure you’re acting within the law it’s best to check the legal gambling age in your state or native country before joining an online casino.
What is a welcome bonus?
Most online casinos offer new players a ‘welcome bonus’ which “matches” a first deposit 100 or 200%. First, deposit and play eligible games over a set time period. Any deposited cash must be “wagered” in order for the bonus money to be claimed. It’s common to wager a deposit 30-40 times over before being able to withdraw the cash.
Are online casinos safe?
Check to see if the casino has a license (usually listed at the bottom of the homepage). If it does, that means it’s been independently verified and will have to adhere to strict operating standards to continue trading. One of which will be publishing its payout percentage (the rate at which the casino pays out versus the amount of money being invested by players). Another indication a casino is safe is its security credentials. All of our recommended top casino sites feature state of the art 128-bit encryption, so if you’re unsure just take a look at our casino reviews. We rate player safety incredibly highly.
Is there limits on how much I can withdraw?
Yes, although this will depend on the withdrawal method and the casino.
For example, at 5Dimes you can get a cashier’s check up to $7,500. The limit on money orders is $9,500. The limit on Bitcoin is $10,000. And the limit on bank wires is $9,500.
Limits are usually per request, week, or month.
The best way to find out about a casino’s limits is to read casino reviews. All that info is covered there.
Can I play without using real money?
Most online casinos let you play for “play” or fake money.
However, keep in mind that at most casinos, you’ll still need to create an account. The only exceptions we know of are Bovada (US) and Bodog (CA). You can play (most of) their games without creating an account.
