Online Casino Gambling

The world’s first true online casino first arrived in 1994 and now you can find more than 2200 individual gaming websites. The best online casinos in the world tend to be powered by the likes of Microgaming, Playtech and NetEnt software and some of the other leading online casino software providers include (in no particular order) Realtime Gaming, IGT Interactive, Amaya Gaming, NextGen Gaming, WMS Gaming, Rival Gaming, Betsoft Gaming and Quickspin. In fact you can now find more than 50 ‘top-rated’ software providers and you will find that a growing number of today’s online casinos are in fact powered by multiple software providers which gives you an extremely diverse range of games to choose from.

Online casinos are generally packed with more slot machines than any other games. These games are also often referred to as pokies and they range from 3 reel classic slots with just 1 payline to the 5 reeled video slots with multiple paylines (or multiple win ways). You can also find lots of exciting table & card games such as roulette, blackjack, casino poker and video poker, as well as instant win games, bingo games, variety games and speciality games and the games with the biggest prizes to play for are known as progressive jackpot games. You can also now find multi-player slots and live dealer casino games such as live roulette, live blackjack and live baccarat.

Apart from the live dealer games and the progressive jackpot games which are usually only ever available in the real money mode, almost all other games at your chosen casino will be available in the free play demo mode as well. Online casinos are free to sign up to and you will receive some kind of guaranteed new player welcome bonus when you register your details. This is usually a matching deposit bonus which can be claimed when you make your first ever deposit. You can also then earn redeemable loyalty rewards points simply by playing on the games in the real money mode.

Some online casinos today are entirely non-downloadable which means that you can play instantly in your web browser. You may also have the option to download the free casino software onto your Windows desktop or laptop computer and this will give you access to even more games and more promotional offers. Most online casinos are also now mobile ready which means that you can play your favourite games on-the-go from your smartphone or tablet device. You only need to open one account and then you can use that same username & password to access all of the casino products that are available across all of the available platforms.

Today’s best online casinos are known for processing super-fast withdrawals, they are protected by the latest 128-bit Secure Socket Layer encryption technology and they will be licensed by one of the most trusted licensing authorities in the world (e.g. in Malta, Gibraltar, Kahnawake, Antigua, or in the UK). They will also accept most major currencies and payment methods such as Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Ukash and NETELLER. You can also count on 24 hour professionally trained player support at any of today’s most trustworthy online casinos.
