Online Internet Gambling is it safe?
Internet Blackjack, Poker, Slots, Craps, Roulette is it Safe?
Is gambling safe online? Well is gambling safe anytime? If you are looking to win money - A casino is
probably the place to do it. If you are looking to make money, I would suggest looking elsewhere.
The curiosity of people to gamble online is often hampered by concerns about the
safety of placing bets over the Internet.
In some instances, those concerns are justified. While the majority of online casinos
are regulated there are some which are not.
A little research and posing the
right questions will go a long way toward making your online gambling experience a safe one.
Here are some simple guidelines to follow before you make a wager online:
Check the posted rules, policies and FAQ (frequently asked questions) pages on the
sites you are considering.
If you're betting on sporting events, compare the odds with the numbers printed in the newspaper.
Check if a site is a member of the Interactive Gaming Council, an association set
up to instill consumer confidence in online gambling, or if it has the blessing of its government.
Consult an embassy to find out whether a country licenses gambling sites.
If a gambling site is part of a publicly traded company, you can examine its financial statements.
Call the toll-free numbers and try the e-mail addresses listed at gambling
sites and steer clear of sites that don't have them.
Get a feel for the customer service people. Is someone available around the clock?
Read what customers have to say about gambling outfits at Internet forums and newsgroups.
Check to see if a site lists it's auditor.
Marketing may also give you a clue about a siteís legitimacy. A company thatís invested a
lot of money in advertising is more likely to be a reputable business than one that has not.
Test your gambling skills before betting. Golden Palace, for example, lets you practice playing
blackjack, poker and other games before purchasing online gambling credits. I held my own playing blackjack but
didnít fare well at poker, keno or roulette.
Remember that Gambling online or in an actual Casino is safe until you make your first bet. Casino's are in business
to make money and keep in mind that they do this very well.
