When choosing an online casino, it's necessary to consider things which are not clear to the layman at first glance.
While choosing the best casino for you, you should firstly be sure whether the casino meets the most important parameters, like accepting players from the country you live in and the reputation of the casino for fair gaming and paying out winnings. Secondly, you can choose a casino according to the availability of customer support in your language, attractiveness of the casino's website design or according to their selection of games.
It’s important to look for honest online casinos that treat their players well, besides being just overall good gambling sites.
Over the next few days we will publish a series of articles, where we describe some characteristics that we think an online casino should have.
The casino fully accepts players from your country
Always make sure that the casino fully accepts players from a country where you have a place of residence. Many countries formally ban online casinos from operating in their territory. In practise, not all countries apply this prohibition to every casino. Also, not all countries have influence on casinos based in gambling legislative havens. But many casinos prefer retreating and not accepting players from such countries.
If you are from such a country, you may find that a casino will allow you to register and play, but in case of winning, it will require a proof of residence from another country. They will invoke this on their terms & conditions.
If in doubt, it's best to ask the casino about it through online chat, before depositing any money to it. Use the following question: "Hello, I am a player with a place of residence in (your country). I would like to know if you fully accept players from (your country). Can I register in your casino, deposit money, play, win, and then also withdraw my winnings?" If answered positively, take a screenshot of the chat and save it.
