How to Choose the Best Online Casinos

There are a number of great, online casinos on the internet these days.  In fact, there are more than 600 different online casinos operating on a range of skins and software, offering their own themed games, jackpots and player rewards.

Choosing to pick on online casino to sign up to can be a little tricky to the first time players since depending on whether you plan on sticking around for a long time or chopping and changing for new bonus deals, the quality of the casino can greatly affect your enjoyment and profits.

So, what are the most important things to look out for when playing at a new real money casino?

Nowadays, the most important thing about casinos if you’re from the US is, “does the casino accept US players?”  Unlike 10 years ago, where all of the best online casinos happily accepted US players, the UIGEA 2006 effectively prohibited US players from depositing at many online casinos.  This is why some of my favourite casinos such as 32Red, 888 and Ladbrokes no longer accept US players.

You’ll notice that Micro-gaming casinos in particular don’t accept US players (i.e. Ladbrokes, All Slots, 32Red casino etc).

However choosing USA Casinos isn’t the only problem. You have to make sure that the casino has a range of free, speedy deposit and withdrawal methods for US players and accept popular ewallets such as UseMyWallet and eChecks.  Bodog casino, for instance, doesn’t have a very good payment processor for Americans unlike Rushmore or High noon Casino.

Secondly, deposit bonuses and promotions tend to be very important for new players.  Most online casinos offer massive deposit bonuses, instant bonuses and rolling bonuses to new players that can be worth more than $1,000.  In my opinion, the best casino bonuses are the ones that give you free money just for signing up and don’t have any deposit requirements.  High noon casinos for example gives all new players $60 in free bonuses without having to make a deposit or anything.

Finally, the range of games and the size of payouts is really important.  Depending on what type of casino games you prefer, it’s generally good to find a full range of table, slots, specialties and jackpot games.  Video poker, blackjack, roulette and craps are some of the most popular games played today, however progressive slots and specialties such as bingo, keno and hi-lo are surprisingly becoming more popular.

Some casinos, such as High noon casino or Manhattan Slots, will obviously have a particular theme and specialisation of games.  Top Scratch, for example, offers one of the best variety of scratch card and lotto games, where as if you’re looking for more popular casino games such as slots, craps and roulette than you might want to try Rushmore or Bodog instead.
