If you have never gambled online before, or are fairly new to the process, this article is meant to provide you with the information you need get started. Quite a few online casinos offer features that are, arguably, more desirable and that produce a higher quality of experience than what you find in any physical casino.

Online you can reset all of your bets in a roulette game with the simple click of a mouse. On a single zero roulette wheel you could wager one-dollar chips. You can play slot games with much higher payouts than that which you would find in Vegas or anywhere else for that matter; sometimes up to 99%. For video poker players, the abundant variety of machines that certain online casinos offer is staggering (sometimes 15 diverse machines with 9 distinct coin values). This type of variety is unheard of in a physical casino.

To ease you into your first online casino experience follow the rules laid out below. If you use these rules as a guideline your initiation into gambling online should be smooth and trouble free.

Good luck getting started and hopefully you will love gambling at online casinos as much as we do.

Stick to these rules when gambling online for the first time:

  1. Take a look at an online casino of your choosing. You need not be worried about which casino you choose from our site because they all offer download software that is safe, customer service around the clock, every day of the year, as well as a fast payment system using 100% Secure Transactions. You have the option of playing for real or playing for fun on each Casino listed and they will all provide you with enticements to purchase your first chips. A Casino's offer to new players deserves assessment. Decide if you would like to play on the particular Casino you are looking at and, if not, simply return to our Casino listings and try out a Casino that better suits you.

  2. Search for the button that allows you download the software onto your computer. The button will usually say "Download Now" or "Download." Since all of the companies we conduct business are professional, secure, and safe you need not be worried if they require you enter an email address. Type your email address in the appropriate field and click on "Download." If the casino does not require an email address just go ahead and click "Download."

  3. After the software download is complete, a new icon will appear on the desktop of your computer. When you want to commence installation simply double click the icon. A new online casino icon will appear on your computer's desktop when the installation is complete. From this point onwards, if you wish to get into the online casino, double clicking the icon will make the casino program begin to run.

  4. With the software having been downloaded and installed, there are only a few final actions required of you. First, click on the aforementioned icon to open the casino, then register an account in your name with the casino, then, if you would like to play for real money, buy some chips, and finally go gambling and win some money.

  5. To initiate the online casino click on your desktop's casino icon. If you have not yet created an account, a window should appear requesting that you register. Complete the information requested on the registration page in its entirety and correctly. This personal information is required of you so that the casino can send you the money that you have won. Therefore, make sure that the information is accurate! Make sure you write down the password they give you in a very safe place. Do not save the password on your computer if children use this computer. You are responsible for the gambling on this account!

  6. Now that you have a username and password you can log in and begin playing. Upon your initial log in, a window may appear asking if you would like to purchase any chips. If you only intend to play for free, simply close the message, decide on which game you would like to play, and begin gambling. If, however, you would like to gamble with real money, then follow the prompts in the message. If no message appears search for buttons that say "banking," "cashier," or "bank" and click on it. Here, you should be able to purchase chips once you register your credit card. In addition, some online casinos will allow you to purchase chips through alternative methods such as ATM, PrePaid, FirePay, Neteller, Western Union, or bank wire. So go buy some chips, choose your game, start gambling, and win some money!

Another tip that needs to be offered here is that patience goes a long way when playing at online casinos as they can very well mess up from time to time and when that happens you have to really be prepared and know that there's not much you can do. Contact customer support right away should you expereince any problems in playing at online casinos either downloading the software or even just during play in general.

There are indeed some helpful tips. I like reading the articles here on Casino Advisor for the most part I find them to be informative and rather educating.

Another thing not mentioned that you should keep in mind is that if you get to a point where you're finding that you cannot deposit into the casino using your credit card then you're going to want to either try a different credit card, a different online casino or to open up an alternative online casino banking method from which you'll be able to first transfer money into and then from the alternate banking account transfer money from there into your online casino account.

One thing that people I've talked to will run into sometimes as a problem is that their computer systems are too slow or don't have enough RAM in order to fully enjoy the gaming expereince that some of the online casino software providers had intended for players who play online. It's always a good idea to look over the minimum system requirements of the casino you're about to play at and then ensure that you're at least a little bit better then that.

Something that hasn't been discussed in this article is the fact that before playing at an online casino you should first play for free. This way even if you're not overly familiar with the rules of any particular game you can play for fun without losing your pants. It's also always a good idea to have a general understanding and strategy on how to play certain games before you commence in playing them.
