Online casino are governed by rules similar to that of land based casinos and even though some of these rules may seem to be common sense, it will still be to your benefit to read through them.
In most instances these rules are referred to as the terms and conditions of the casino and some online casinos also have a FAQ section to answer questions that get asked regulary by players.
The first and most common rule you will find at all online casinos is: No online casino allows players younger than 18 years of age to play for real money.
Some online casinos don’t allow players from certain countries to play at their establishments due to either legislation in the country regarding gambling and online gambling or due to high rates of internet fraud in these particular countries. These restrictions are mostly placed on African countries and on some countries in the Middle East.
One great feature of online casinos is that they offer bonuses for individuals playing at their casinos. These come in the form of free casino chips that would get credited to your casino account as match bonus to what you have deposited, or in some cases it would be a bonus just merely for registering an account to play for real money.
The bonuses that are offered vary from one casino to another, but the great thing is that the bonuses offered to players playing small amounts of money, is the same as that offered to individuals who play large amounts of money.
One thing that must be noted regarding these bonuses however is that even though they do allow you to have more money to play with at the casino, there are wagering requirements that you need to meet before you can take the money out of the casino.
The reason for these wagering requirements are there to protect the casinos from individuals who want to abuse their generous promotional offers, but these wagering requirements are always set at a reasonable level. This allows you to walk away with your winnings if you have some luck on your side.
There are other rules that online casinos also have and I strongly advise that you always have a look at an online casinos terms and conditions first before playing at the casino. This will definitely avoid any confusion as you play at the casino.
All of this must sound very serious, but it isn’t that bad. As I said earlier, most of these rules are common sense, but it is better to be informed about these things instead of making your whole gambling experience a frustrating one.
