Internet gambling is the placing of bets on casino/sports/lottery
type games over the Internet. Real online gaming is when the betting,
playing and collecting of money is carried out through the Internet.
is an internet casino?
An Internet casino is an Internet site where you can play one or
more casino type games, such as roulette, for real money. Some Internet
casinos will let you play for free but the real reason to play is
to win real money.
are two kinds of Internet casinos.
Casinos that require software download. Although downloads can
be slow, you can usually download these casinos for free and play
games for fun before depositing money.
Non download casinos: This type of casino will require you to
have already downloaded flash. However, download time is very
fast and the graphics on a flash casino can be excellent.

Most Internet casinos are generally licensed in the country they
are in and have to report to the local government to some extent.
Antigua,St. Kitts, Grenada, Curacao,Dominican Republican and Gibraltar
are just a few countries that license them.
reason these small countries allow Online Gambling operators to
set up is because it can help boost their local economy. Companies
pay anything up to $100,000 to gain a gaming license in these countries,
as well as paying ongoing taxes to the local Government.
Do I Start Playing?
We highly recommend that you look around at a number of casinos
before making any decisions. Especially look at the deposit requirements,
minimum bets etc. Many Internet casinos will let you visit for free
and even place some bets without signing up. Each casino listed
on 'Bettingtowin' has been reviewed by us for fair play compliance,
downloads and quality of games offered.
you have chosen a casino and downloaded the software, you will be
asked to register as either a Guest player or Real Player. Guest
Players or Play for Fun players allow you to register without depositing
money. You can then play the games for fun before playing for real.
The games will be the most popular casinos games such as roulette,
blackjack etc. For some examples see our Play for Fun pages. To
become a Real Player you will need to complete an online form. You
will end up with an account number and a password; make a note of
these details- you will need them to log in again.
do I make cash deposits and withdrawals?
In all cases you will have to deposit money up front before you
can gamble for real online. This will mean sending online casinos
money via wire transfers, credit cards etc.
casinos operate on the account system - you send them money and
your account is credited for that amount. As you gamble, money is
credited or debited as you win or lose. When you wish to withdraw
money from your casino account you can do so in nearly all of the
ways that deposits could be made.
operations now allow you to have money withdrawn directly placed
back onto the credit card that you first deposited money into your
account with. This option is recommended as you can access your
winnings within days.
secure are Internet casinos and sportsbooks?
There are relatively few problems with casino payouts and deposit
security, however it is important to ensure that you choose a casino
that operates secure and fair play. Many of the casino jurisdictions
require that the licensee posts bonds of cash or insurance as part
of the license requirements.
personal security (including credit card details and other personal
information) is also guaranteed under license agreements in many,
if not all, jurisdictions. Most casinos and sportsbooks use secure
servers to conduct all of their transactions, and all information
about you is held offline. Many also take out insurance against
fair are Internet casinos and sportsbooks?
All casinos listed on Bettingtowin adhere to our fair play policy.
For more information click here. Online Casinos are fairer than
many people realize. The "house" is happy making the normal
profits of gambling. In many of the countries, the computer programs
must be submitted to the government for thorough checking of fairness
toward the player, and the firm also has to be guaranteed by one
of the big eight international accounting firms.
all cases with casino gambling the odds for single deck blackjack,
for instance, are exactly the same with an Internet casino as with
the real thing. The same is true for baccarat, roulette etc.
for the gaming machine type games (slots, video poker etc) the player
payout percentages are determined by the casino, and many will post
what the percentage of payout is online.
