All Casinos have policies about how much you can cash out and when. Normally, adjustments are made to your credit card up to the original amount you deposited. If your winnings are greater than your deposit the casino will send you a check. They will send the check by a courier, but there is always an additional fee for that service. Some online casinos also offer bank wire transfers and some even allow use of e-cash companies such as Neteller or Pay Pal. Make sure to read the casino’s info on withdrawals before starting to play.
Things to look for at the casino website
Games variety – does the casino have the games you are looking for?
Payout percentage – at least 95%
Banking options – are you satisfied with the withdrawal/deposit options?
Customer support – 24 hours and toll free numbers
Getting the casino on your computer – The standard procedure is to download a package from one
of the online casinos and run the software. Within the software there are usually a couple of options,
and you can probably play a selection of the games for free before you register.
There are also no-download required casinos (Java based of Flash) that give you the possibility to
start playing immediately.
Download or No-Download
If you just want to try online gambling, it is best that you play at a no-download casino.
No-download casinos give you the possibility to start playing immediately.
Download casinos require a 10 to 60 minutes of downloading, but they usually have better
graphics and better sound. So if you want to play regularly, downloading is recommended.
What Games does the Casino Offer?

(Some casinos offer 10 games while others offer 60 games).

check it and see if you like the casino graphics.

Does the Casino have a Sign-Up Bonus?
Check the casino bonus on the casino website. Don’t rely only on bonus information from
sites and portals like ours (since the information is not always updated).
Check the bonus rules; most casinos require that you wager both the bonus and the deposit 3 to 8 times.
If you can’t find the bonus rules on the website, e-mail their customer support.
Again, don’t rely only on the payout percentage lists which appear in sites and portals like ours.
Check the information on the casino website. See who are the auditors; is it the casino
itself or is it an external company (like “Price Water Cooperhouse”).
Banking – Deposit and Withdrawals
Casinos offer you several ways to deposit money: credit cards, checks, money order or wire transfer.
Some even offer services such as Pay Pal or Fire Pay. See if the casino offers the appropriate way for you.
See what are the possibilities that the casino gives for withdrawals.
Check how quickly can you receive your winnings and whether you have to pay an additional fee.
Don’t play at a casino which doesn’t contain any banking information on its website.
Checking the banking information is very important, so don’t be hasty, it is worth the effort.
All casinos have a support page at their website (if they don’t get the hell out of their website).
Almost everybody gives an e-mail address for support. That’s not enough! Go to casinos which offer
toll free numbers. Check them out before even downloading – are they answering or is there an
answering machine. Ask them a few questions to see how serious are they.
