Online casinos are all the rage these days. If you haven't joined in on the fun yet, now is the time to make your move! Of course, if you are new to online gambling it can be a little overwhelming when you first start out. Where do you even begin? What is the first step? What are you supposed to do with all these casino games, anyway?
Don't worry! This guide has got you covered. We will walk you through how to set up an account and how to play online. Then we will review a few of the most popular games so you can figure out which ones suit your style of play best and then we will give you a few strategies that might help you win (even if they are just for fun because it's all about the thrill, isn't it?).
Getting Started: Set Up Your Account
Before we actually start playing games we need to set up an account. Well, technically every online casino requires you to set up an account before you can start gambling but we will get into that in just a bit. For now, all we need to know is how to set up an account and what information we will need in order to do so.
When setting up your new account the casino may ask for any of the following:
You should feel free to share any of this information with the casino. They will not ask for a credit card number or for your social security number (or national identity number if you are from outside the US) but they may very well ask for your phone number.
In most cases, it should be fine to provide them with one of your alternate email addresses in case they need to contact you because of a problem with your account. This is especially true if you do not use that email address for much else and thus there isn't a chance that any important personal information or documents could be sent to it.
Gambling! – Wow, That's Exciting!
Okay, so now we actually get to start playing! When you first log into the casino from your new account there is a good chance that a pop-up window with a welcome message will be waiting for you. If not, don't worry! You can still find all of the bet365 games on the main page and then go through the process of finding out how much each game pays out and how to play them.
This might actually be a good time to mention that when you are ready to start gambling it is best to set yourself up with an account at more than one casino just in case there is some sort of problem (we don't want you losing all your money because the connection dropped out right before you hit the big win). This also allows you to access more games by spreading yourself out.
Of course, this is easier said than done because not every casino takes the same currency. You might not even be able to play the same casino games in two different casinos. However, you should still try and set up accounts at several different places so that when you do find a game you like (which we will get to in just a bit) you know where else to go in case there is some sort of issue with your primary account.
Playing a Game
Now that you have a little background on what casinos are and how to set up an account, it's time to start playing. By now you should know how to access the main site and log in so we can finally get down to business!
The first thing you will probably want to do is check out the available games. There are several sites that have done their best to review the available games so you can at least have an idea of what is out there. We recommend that you check out some of these sites for reviews on the games you are interested in playing.
If you don't find the game you are looking for on these sites then there is a good chance that it can be found on YouTube. If not, try Google and use the name of the game followed by the word casino (so if you were looking for roulette then your search would look like this: "roulette casino").
Well, that should be enough to get you started and we hope that you have a lot of fun with your online gambling experiences. Keep in mind that these are just the basics and there is so much more to learn if you want to become a pro gambler. For things like this, it's always best to start small and work your way up – but that's just a suggestion.
