4 answers for the casino newbie

In this article I would like to help people that are completely new to online gambling by providing the answers to some of the questions that I wish I had known the answer to when I was first starting out. Hopefully, this can save you a little bit of time and leave you a little less confused than you were before. In general, casino gaming isn’t as complicated as you would think – everything will quickly fall in to place when you start playing properly. So, here are, in my own opinion, the four most common questions about casino gaming amongst beginners.

What is an online casino?

Everybody pretty much knows what casino games are. We have all seen them, either in real life or in movies, or we’ve read about them or seen pictures of them. Well, an online casino is basically a website on the internet which allows real people to play casino games in a virtual environment, with real money and real winnings. Now of course, the games aren’t played the same way they would have been in a real casino. There are no actual cards or roulette wheels in the online casino world- Everything is done via a Random Number Generator, which ensures that the casino is not manipulating the outcome of the games. Players are at the same time shown animations in the virtual environment, which makes the game feel like real casino games. Basically, online casino gaming is an alternative to real casino gaming, accessible to anyone with a laptop and an internet connection.

Where should I start?

Online casino gaming is a huge industry, and there are several thousand websites which offer casino games that you can take part in. However, it’s better to spend some time finding a place that suits you, rather than just starting to play at the first site you find. Basically, there aretwo types of online casinos. The first type is the downloadable casino. This means that you have to download software and install it on your computer in order to be able to play. These casinos often have the best graphics. The other form is browser based gaming. By using technology like Flash, most casinos today offer all their games straight in your computer’s browser, meaning you won’t have to spend any time downloading and installing anything. Browser based casino games are the most popular today.

Will the casino try to scam me?

The short answer to this is that it is very, very unlikely – As long as you play at a casino which have a gaming license. The thing is that today there are so many casinos competing over their customers, that if a customer feels like he’s losing too much at a particular casino, he can simply change to another casino within a minute. Therefore, casinos are more likely to compete in who can be the most fair casino, rather than the other way around.

What games should I play?

This is rather hard to answer as everyone has their own personal favorite, but generally I would recommend you start off by playing slot machines. They are extremely easy to understand, and at the same time one of the most entertaining game forms. After you feel comfortable at the slot machines – try other games and see if you can find your own favorites among them! A good idea is to play in practice mode when you first start playing a game. This means that you will not bet real money on the game, meaning you won’t lose any money until you’ve properly learnt the game.
