The online casino industry has grown at an incredible rate over the last decade. This is obviously great for fans of gambling but this growth hasn’t come without some issues that users should be aware of.

Reputation is everything when it comes to games of chance. Who in their right mind would choose to gamble their money in a game that might be rigged against them? Who would transfer funds to an online casino which has a poor reputation when it comes to withdrawals? With so much more choice available these days it has become much more important to do some due diligence when finding a reputable casino to play at.


What to Look Out For

Licenses from regulatory bodies: Licensing is the first check when searching for a reputable online casino. Of course, this is never a complete guarantee that you won’t have a problem but it does highlight how serious the company is about doing things “correctly.”

Also, some regulatory bodies are more reputable than others; they have a higher standing in the world of gambling. You can be sure that a casino licensed by the UK Gambling Commission or the Malta Gaming Authority has been thoroughly audited.

The checks that are carried out consist of, at least, background checks of the company owners, financial checks, and technical checks of the software client.

The UKGC takes its work extremely seriously and last year ushered in sweeping changes to protect problem gamblers.

If you aren’t sure about a particular casino that you’re considering signing up for then just take a look at how hard they push the fact that they’re licensed. Casinos that aren’t trustworthy won’t mention this anywhere at all on their website.

Segregated funds: It is always a good sign when an online casino highlights that they segregate player funds from the business accounts. On the off chance that their business is forced to close they will always be able to pay back any deposited funds. A sign of reputability.

Check reviews: Taking a look at what current and previous customers have to say about a casino is a great way to build up a picture of how reputable it is. Look for patterns of good feedback that show good customer service and no complaints about players struggling to withdraw their account balance. Disguised conditions to take advantage of a bonus or promotion are always a red flag to watch out for.

Signing up to a new online casino can be daunting without prior experience. The thought of depositing money and not getting the expected service puts many off from experiencing what modern casinos have to offer. By spending just a small amount of time checking over the company you will be almost sure to dodge any that are unscrupulous.
