Stick to registered and licensed services – The early days of online casinos could be a bit of a minefield with legitimate and illegitimate services all mixed in together, but there has been a big change over the years and now most of the sites you’ll run in to will be perfectly safe, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any bad apples amongst the bunch. It has become much easier to identify the best sites though, all online casinos will have to display their licensing number that can be easily searched and verified to ensure you’re playing on the best services, and with lists of some of the bigger names at TBC for example it’s easier than before to find a safe place to play. 

Keep an eye on proposed changes – With a huge amount of regulation in place for player protection, online casinos often go through big changes that have a wider impact over the service you receive – the UK is a great example of this having banned credit card payments last year and the recent announcement that online slots would be going through a change to slow them down too, it’s important to keep an eye on these changes as they may adjust the way you play your favourite games in a big way, and although it often takes a small amount of time to put the changes in place the operators who jump the gun can often put them in place ahead of schedule. 

Be mindful of which games you’re playing – Although it isn’t something made too transparent, the biggest games all provide different odds for winning and there are reports that show how these odds have changed over time – the likes of blackjack and other games of chance like craps are amongst the highest winning percentage, whilst other favourites like slots are amongst the lowest. Choosing the right game can give you the best odds of winning and playing it safe on any of these games can not only increase your winnings but more importantly decrease your losses too and can drastically improve your enjoyment of the many online casino games.
