Which Online Casino Site to Choose?

September 21, 2021 at 4:01 am

It’s the $64,000,000 question, which casino site should I lend my custom to. Well with a dizzying array of options, there’s no easy answer to that. There are however a few steps that you can take to ensure that you’re not making a bad choice and are maximising your money from the get go.

First off, with any casino site you find yourself on, it can’t hurt to Google them and have a bit of a poke around for reviews and comments from others, just to ensure that it’s a trusted name in the area of casino gaming. There are a few rogue sites out there with hacked games, where the odds of winning may not be what they seem and/or you’ll have trouble withdrawing your money. By doing your very basic homework though and by following trusted online guides you can avoid this issue.

Next up, I’d say that it’s important to get the most bang for your buck. Online casinos are a highly competitive area with countless companies vying for your custom. That results in some great sign up incentives and bonuses (such as free spins) being on offer. Take advantage of these offers are you’re already off to a good start. Be sure to check whether there are any restrictions though. Some sites demand that you gamble your bonus money a certain number of times, whereas others don’t. Know that you’re getting into.

Also some sites have what’s essentially a match bet / deposit. As in if you deposit £100, they will match it with a £100 free bet. I’ve seen, in some cases, this offer be valid for up to a £500 deposit, so if you play your cards right (literally!) you can potentially be quids in.

Beyond these stated hints and tips, of course it makes sense to stick with a site that features the kind of games (slot variations etc) and environment that matches your interests and playing style. Whichever site you play on, best of luck!

I’d be naive if I claimed that there aren’t some people who simply won’t know when to call it quits. We can all get drawn in by various casino games and it’s important to be able to draw the line under proceedings if you’re having a bad run. My game of choice is roulette but how I play it isn’t exactly excitement central, I make it more workman-like if anything, and so I while I have a fun time, I wouldn’t say that I’m every truly captivated, or under some kind of spell.

I’d say it’s similar with cards, sure who doesn’t get drawn into a lengthy poker or blackjack session from time to time,but it’s somewhat self limiting  by fact that you do have to constantly make decisions as you go, which involves a  level of effort.

The most mesmerizing casino game, in my view, simply has to be the slots. Those bright lights and enthusiastic sounds bring back memories of childhood amusement parks and fun times. The potential for that often elusive big win is a draw too. Slot machines makers I feel know this, and online and offline slots alike now tend to have an ever growing number of reels and ways to win. As such, with a large number of spins you’re winning ‘something’ and this keeps your interest, and keeps you holding out for that big win that’s surely just around the corner.

Sometimes of course it is, other times not so much, but in either case, it’s the one casino game that people drift off into a trance when they’re playing!


I know.. I’ll bet on EVERYTHING!

I tend to take a slow but steady approach to roulette. Admittedly many would simply call it boring and wouldn’t be at all interested in emulating it. To quickly explain, what I tend to find myself doing is sticking to a couple of numbers and placing chips on those come what may – along with occasionally variations of nearby numbers that include them.

There’s no particular reason why this is some kind of winning approach, it’s more a weird trait or stubbornness and allegiance being channeled into my play. If my luck is in that night and it’s one of the lucky numbers coming up multiple times, then I’ve had a great time. If, instead it’s like a ghost town, then oh well it wasn’t meant to be and it’s a case of ‘better luck next time’. No harm done.

While it’s not a matter of ‘better’ or worse’ my approach is a marked departure from the chip happy approach of some. As soon as they’re allowed to put their chips down there is a mad clamber to the point where they’ve covered all but every number on the table until the croupier states, ‘No More Bets’. Of course, generally they ‘win’, as in they have chips on the winning number, but how often do they actually win overall? At best it seems like a way to very incrementally increase your winnings, which if anything sounds more boring than my one number approach!

The real disaster scenario for the chip happy crowd is when one or the two or three numbers they didn’t manage or bother to cover comes up. It can be a real wipe out when that happens! In any case, it’s interesting to watch peoples different playing styles, so no judgement however you choose to play!
