It’s Safer To Play Online

When you look online for anything related to Casino you will no doubt stumble upon a huge selection of websites trying to gain your custom by offering you a great roulette bonus. You can find out a great deal about these bonuses by visiting  Sinbad Casino.  As well as these advertisements you might even come across a whole selection of topics that claim to have the perfect gambling strategy. If you delve further you will also find stories of massive winning streaks by players that have taken advantage of “Bias” or uneven wheels, possibly a few stories of corruption that involve players and croupiers working together in order to cheat the casino or “House”.

Since the introduction of online casino websites, the ability to cheat or take advantage of an unbalanced wheel has become impossible, as has the opportunity for a casino to be able to manipulate games to boost profits. Some would go as far as saying that todays online casino websites offer a safer gaming environment that the majority of land based establishments.

Every website that offers online casino games now have to follow strict rules and practices that are designed to protect both the casino, and you the player. Websites like Smartlive Casino and Gentings Casino are pioneers of the online casino industry and are all regulated by some of the worlds most determined regulatory bodies. The Gambling Act 2005 led to some of the world’s most well-known and trusted regulatory organisations taking on the role of monitoring casino websites across the world to make sure that they ran operations in a manner that eliminates any possibility of dishonesty and prevents any harm to customers. These regulatory organisations keep online casino customers safe and free from the trappings of anything dishonest. Reputable websites such as those mentioned above actively participate in the development of new software and technologies and work alongside each other in making sure that the online casino industry remains a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

How to Make the Most Money from Mobile Casinos

If you’re a mobile casino player like me than I’m going to provide a few ways to making the most money from mobile games.

Why Mobile Gambling?

It’s no secret that the gambling market is going mobile, and eventually you’re going to have to get used to this fact too.  Jupiter research estimated that the mobile gambling market was worth $4.6 billion in 2009 and this figure’s grown to more than $5.5 billion in 2010.  Given the substantial amount of growth in the industry and the promotion of mobile products and services in the UK media (e.g. William Hill’s mobile advert during every Sky Sports games) by 2013 mobile gambling could account for up to 10% of the total gambling market.

How to Make the Most Money from Mobile Casinos

My first bit of advice is to sign up to mobile casinos which offer progressive jackpots and free sign-up bonuses.  If you put 2+2 together than you’ll realise that you can use this free money as a good chance to win large video slots jackpots sometimes worth £100,000 up to £1 million (e.g. Megah Moolah progressive jackpot for mobile users).

You can find free sign-up bonuses at a number of casinos.  William Hill’s Mobile Casino Club offers players a £10 no deposit bonus in addition to a 150% up to £150 deposit bonus.  Other sites such as mFortune.co.uk also offer £5 free sign-up bonuses which you can take advantage from.  Even less well known mobile operators such as Win2Go.com offer £2 free credits to new players.

My second tip if to take advantage of the biggest mobile casino bonuses which you can find at marketing websites such as MobileCasinoBonus.org.  Here you can find bonuses worth between £50 and £200 at sites such as 32Red Mobile, Platinum Play, Jackpot City Mobile and even UK bookmakers such as Betfair, Bet365 and William Hill.

By using mobile casino deposit bonuses you can double or triple your bankroll by clearing the bonuses in games such as Tomb Raider slots, bingo bonanza, Major Million video slots, Video Poker and others.  You can make a deposit straight from your phone too which is really useful.

Finally, the biggest mobile jackpots can be found in the progressive slots and video slots games such s Megah Moolah, Major Millions, Tomb Raider, Mermaid Millions and others.  This have jackpots worth between £50,000 and £1.2 million, which are by far the biggest available for mobile players right now. If you want to make money and win big than you have to get used to be playing these games and wagering the full amount of coins (all paylines) to be eligible for the main progressive jackpots.

How to Play 90 Ball Bingo

90 ball bingo is the most popular form of bingo played in the UK, Australia and New Zealand (former states of the British Empire).  The 90 ball version of bingo is also far more popular at online bingo sites and tends to have larger prizes and jackpots than its 75 ball counterpart.  You can find 90 ball bingo games at all UK bingo sites such as Foxy Bingo, Bet365 Bingo, Posh Bingo and Jackpot Joy for example. 90 ball bingo is also a slightly easier game for new bingo players to understand since there are no changing patters or rules like there are in other types of bingo games.

90 Ball Bingo Card

The 90 ball bingo card or “ticket” contains a total of 15 random numbers from the numbers 1 – 90.  The numbers are printed are a 9×3 card (9 columns and 3 rows) with the numbers 1-10 on the first column, the numbers 11-20 on the second column, and so on until the final column contains the numbers 81-90.  On each line or row there are a total of 5 numbers (which multiplied by the 3 lines makes up 15 numbers in total).

How to Play 90 Ball Bingo Games

The aim of 90 ball bingo is to cross of or “daub” out each of the numbers on your ticket before any of the other players in the same game; specific prizes are awarded for 1st line bingo, 2nd line bingo or full house bingo.  Numbers are called out at random by the dealer.  If you have that specific number on your card (e.g. “15”) than you should cross it off or “daub” it out.  Most online bingo sites have an auto-daubing feature that does this for you.  This makes playing bingo online easier, makes sure you don’t miss if you’ve won and also allows you to play with multiple tickets.  In online bingo you can usually buy up to a massive 90 tickets for each game.  The higher the number of tickets that you purchase, the better chance you have of winning the game or jackpots (however this additional cost of purchasing tickets might not necessarily improve your odds overall).

90 ball bingo traditionally has three different prizes in each game which can all be won by the same or three separate players.  These are 1st line, 2nd line and full house bingo.  The player that scratches off the 1st line of his bingo card wins the first prize, then the player(s) that scratch off the 2nd or all of their lines before any other players wins the 2nd line and full house prizes respectively.  Generally, the full house prize contains the biggest jackpot and can be worth up to 10,000 times the price of your ticket.  For example, if you purchase a 10p ticket than you could win up to £1,000.

The key to winning 90 ball bingo games is to select the rooms with the biggest jackpots and the lowest the number of entrants.  The games that have the lowest number of entrants will give you better odds of winning (since bingo is a tournament-style game where you are competing against all of the other players).

Bingo Cashier Options

When playing bingo, there is a wide range of ways you can fund your bingo account with your own money. Generally speaking, the most popular way is through direct funding from your bank account, but there are many other options available to you, especially on bigger bingo sites like Sun Bingo, ITV Bingo and Caesars Bingo.

As mentioned above, direct funding from your bank account is perhaps the easiest and most popular way to add funds to your bingo account. Most bingo sites have a secure online cashier that allows you to safely send them your bank account details in order to add funds. It’s generally recommended that if a bingo site does not offer a secure cashier in order to do this, then it may be best not to fund via your bank account. Always make sure that the transfer of your personal details is safe and secure before you agree to any funding.

The next big payment option is PayPal. PayPal allows you to fund your bingo account from either funds in your PayPal account, or directly from your bank account, without actually having to give the bingo site your bank details. PayPal has been the leader in secure online payments for a number of years now, priding itself on it’s ability to be the secure middle-man for your transactions.

Neteller is the next payment option to fund your account. There are no charges with Neteller and you can easily transfer money from your bank account straight into your bingo funds so you can play immediately. This isn’t as widely used as PayPal though, but is still a very viable option.

Ukash is another payment method that many more bingo sites such as Paddy Power Bingo are accepting now. Ukash allows you to top up a card in your local shop with real money, which is then transferred onto the card to spend online. You can use this card to fund your bingo account without having to give any personal details whatsoever to any company online.

It’s important to make sure you know how to fund your bingo account and how to do it safely, so make sure you choose the right payment method for you. Always verify that the site you are using is using a secure connection before transferring sensitive and personal details across an internet connection!

Finding The Best UK Online Casinos

There are now hundreds of online casinos online so how does one manage to find the best of the best? There is no doubt that the quality of online casino vary, to say the least, a great deal, so players should consider the following points before risking their hard earned cash.

Opt For A Quality Brand

If an online casino offers a sign up bonus that simply seems too good to be true, and is a casino you have never heard of before, then it is perhaps for the best to steer well clear. If you are a UK resident then you have a great range of well known, trusted and reliable brands to choose from. Do you really think the likes of Sky or even Virgin would offer anything less than a top quality online casino. Both these brands have been in operation for years and in the case of Virgin, the brand is one of the biggest in the world. Playing at online casino sites such as Sky Vegas, the sister site to Sky Bingo and indeed Virgin Casino, you do not have to worry about security, fair game play or even obscure deposit and withdrawal methods as both casinos are simply top rate. Stick with quality brands and you will not go far wrong.

Seek Out Value

If you are looking for an online casino for the long term, then look far beyond the initial deposit bonus. Again the top brands such as Virgin and Sky will offer loyalty schemes which in effect offer cash back on every pound spent. Such offers can in many cases be far more rewarding than initial deposit bonuses which in many cases have unrealistic wagering requirements which makes then a complete joke.

Cashier Options

Seek out online casinos that offer a full range of deposit options that include all major debit and credit cards plus online wallets such as PayPal and Neteller. Steer well clear of online casino sites that have limited deposit options.

Range of Games

The range of games on offer at online casinos vary a great deal. Some online casinos are restricted by only offering the range of games offered by the network they use. Other online casinos, such as Virgin Casino are not tied to one network so they can cherry pick the very best games from the best game developers.
