The Vegas trip has been postponed!  You can’t make it to Atlantic City!  Your yacht is in the shop otherwise you would likely head straight to Monaco!  The fact is you can’t make it to any casino that is shaped like a pyramid, the Taj Mahal, a lion’s head or the New York skyline.  The only casino that you can manage to get to at the moment is on the internet.  At last count there were just over one billion online casinos to choose from!  Which ones are safe?  Here are a couple of things to consider when choosing an online casino.

Reputable Software

Much like the brick and mortar casinos, online casinos offer hundreds of games to choose from depending on what you want to play.  Whether your game is poker, craps, blackjack, slots, or roulette the online casino requires you to download gaming software in order to begin play.  Any download that you use, in any application, puts your computer at risk of infection from viruses.

Before you download the casino’s game do some research to determine what company provides this particular casino with their gaming software.  The more reputable and established the software company the less risk is involved.  The leaders in this industry have proven year in and year out that they are a trustworthy source and provide a solid product complete with customer support.  Currently some of the top providers of gaming software for online casinos are Microgaming, Playtech, Boss Media, Gambling Software.com, Net Entertainment, Party Gaming, Vegas Technology, and Cryptologic.  These companies comprise the arguable A list of software providers mainly based on their longevity, quality, and defining role in so many online casinos.

Secure Deposits

Online casinos of course want your money!  Before you choose the casino that you’re going to gamble at be sure to have a full understanding of how they take your money.  If the casino only offers one way to set up an account perhaps that casino is not for you.  Most reputable and thus secure casinos will offer a variety of ways to establish an account.

Arguably the safest method to deposit your money into the casino is with your own credit card or debit card.  This method gives you the most control and will also usually mean instant approval from the casino.  Ewallet is an established and proven way to transact deposits over the internet and acts as an online wallet.  Neteller is a form of ewallet that is widely trusted among the online gambling industry and can be funded directly with a credit card or debit card.  The bottom line is that you feel that the casino is providing a safe environment to complete monetary transactions over the internet.

Doing a little homework will allow you a safe and rewarding online gambling experience.
