CASINO KNOW HOW – How to start playing in online casino
Before you will start your account with any of the online casinos, there is few important things you need to know. You may feel a bit lost at first – with payments, games and procedures. We are here to help you and to make this process as smooth as possible.
First of all you need to know if you are allowed to play online. To start your account you need to confirm that you are over 18 years old. Casino is never available for under-aged players.
Secondary you need to make sure that you are allowed to play from your country. Currently few countries in Europe are completely banned from online casinos. Best way to check it is to read Terms and Conditions of the site that you want to register with. Countries that are not allowed will be then listed in there. For example – players from United Kingdom cannot play on every site after regulations change few years back. Players from Ireland are accepted almost on every gambling site.
If you have already met two criteria above – you are ready to go. You can now start registration process. To register account you will need to provide details like full name, date of birth, address, email and phone number. You are obligated to use only real details. If you will register fake details in casino – your account may be blocked permanently and possible winnings will be then removed. It’s not worth the risk.
After registration – which usually doesn’t take longer than one minute – you will receive email with confirmation or text message with code. You need to use link or code to validate your player’s account. Now you are fully registered and you can move to the next step.
No deposit offers
On your next step you can check casino bonus offers. In some sites you can receive bonus or free spins without deposit. This way you can try the site without using own cash and you will have better overview of provided services.
Casino bonus offers are usually available in Bonus or Promotions tab. You can find there all information including Terms and Conditions. You will need to make sure if offer is available for players registered from your country.
Good way to receive no deposit casino bonus or extra free spins for start is to check dedicated websites made for casino players. Sites like this will allow you to claim exclusive offers which are not available on main casino page.
If you already used your no deposit bonus you can move to the next part. If you will decide to make a deposit you will have few payments options available. Most popular one is credit card – you will need to enter card details to get money on your account. It works exactly the same like online shopping. The only difference is with fees – casinos usually have fee of around 2.5-3% per transaction.
If you don’t have a credit card or you would like to avoid extra fees – you can then use e-wallets (Skrill or Netelller), Paysafecard or standard bank transfer. Those methods comes without extra fees.
When you have made a deposit already – you can now use your welcome bonus offer. Usually offer can be activated on deposit page – with bonus code or by ticking the bonus field. If you have already made a deposit and bonus was not credited to your account, you can still get it. First of all make sure that you are eligible for the promotion.
If you are eligible and offer was not credited – contact casino support before you will start playing. It’s really important to do it right away – as bonus cannot be credited after you have used your money.
Deposit bonus always locks deposited amount – that’s why it cannot be added when there is no money available on your player’s account.
When you have your money available on user’s account already you can now start exploring. First of all you need to pick the game – you will find a high selection of slots, video slots, video poker, roulette or blackjack.
When you will hit a nice big win while playing your favourite game, you can now start the withdrawal process. To make a withdrawal you will need to pick the same method as you have used for deposit.
In most cases payments department will ask you for verification before your first withdrawal can be processed. To verify your account you will need to send copies of ID/Passport, utility bill which shows your name together with address details, bill cannot be older than 3-6 months. To confirm payment method you will need to send either copies of the card, screenshot from e-wallet or from bank account.
Verification usually takes few hours up to maximum 48 hours. It might be that you will be asked for a phone verification. During the phone verification you will need to confirm details of your account and activity on your casino account.
If support will not manage to reach you on the number you’ve registered on your account they may lock your account temporarly. Your account will be inactive until you will verify yourself over the phone. However phone verification happens rarely, usually when you are trying to log in from different country.
Good way to avoid issues and delays with payments is to verify account before first deposit. It will allow you to speed up the process for future withdrawals.
You are now ready to roll!
