Online gaming of any kind can be quite a daunting thing to start doing. Getting some advice from other gamers and friends beforehand can save time and headaches.
If you're new to the world of online casino and gaming, you may not be sure exactly what you should be looking for when choosing a site at which to play. This is an extremely important aspect of online gaming -- you donít want to be sharing your details just anywhere.
Reliable online casinos luckily make every effort to prove that they are safe and secure, and you need to be able to recognise their attempts so you can feel reassured that your information will not be put into the wrong hands or distributed in any way.
So, before picking a site I always follow these steps to make I'm not wasting too much time on unreliable online casinos. Firstly, don't just pick a site at random -- look for one that is well established and widely advertised, as these sites are often under greater scrutiny and therefore put more effort into making sure they are safe and secure.
If you search using a search engine for "online casino", the top sponsored results will probably be these kinds of sites. You could also look for sites advertised on TV or elsewhere on the internet.Best of all is to find a friend who games online themselves and ask them for a site recommendation.
When you actually access a website for the first time, be sensible. Take a thorough look around the homepage and be critical -- if it looks a bit dodgy, it probably is. Look out for a link to the site's terms and conditions. These are extremely important, and if the site doesn't have a link or it is put somewhere that seems hidden then they could be trying to conceal something.
You should always read through these terms and conditions thoroughly before signing up for anything or inputting any personal information.
With these steps you should be much safer online. If in doubt don't click.
With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.
But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
