Online Casino Dont’s

Underage Gambling

You may not play online casino games if you are underage. Do not place any bets or even play for free at an online casino if you are not eighteen years of age or older.


Online casinos take fraud seriously and they employ sophisticated software to detect fraud. Do not attempt to commit fraud while gambling at an online casino. You will be caught and the consequences are severe.

Play at an Unlicensed Casino

Make sure you never play at an unlicensed or unregulated online casino. In order to be licensed, online casinos must comply with minimum standards and this will help to protect you while playing online. Look for the icon of the licensing authority on the casino site and ensure that it is current.

Play without Understanding the Rules

There are many games available at online casinos and often many variations of one type of game. It is important to understand the rules of the game you choose to play and know some basic strategy before you begin playing. Make sure to read through the rules of the game even if you are familiar with them as rules can vary between casinos. Playing without being clear on the rules will increase your chances of losing money.

Don't Expect to Win All the Time

It is important to understand, when you play at an online casino that you will not win all the time. In fact, it is possible that you will have a losing streak. If you expect to win all the time, you are more likely to become stressed and anxious when you lose and that leads to irrational playing that is likely to increase your losses. Keeping a clear head and remaining calm is important for playing with a strategy and sticking to your pre-set goals.

Don't Exceed your Pre-Set Bankroll

Before you begin playing at an online casino you must set limits. Set aside a bankroll that you plan to use for gambling and never dip into funds that are not part of your bankroll. If you finish you bankroll, you must stop playing. Digging into other cash funds, such as rent money or grocery money, will lead to irrational playing that will cause more harm in the long run. If you are playing slots games, it is a good idea to set naked pull and loss limits. A naked pull limit is a limit on the number of times you will spin without winning before you quit. A loss limit is a pre-set amount that you are prepared to lose before you quit. Make sure to always stick to your pre-set limits.
