How To Choose A Reputable Online Casino

by: Adel Awwad

With literally thousands of online casinos on the internet, it can sometimes become very confusing as to which ones are safe and reputable, and which casinos are not. So many of them are beautifully designed, look very professional and offer great signup bonuses, so how does one go about choosing the “reputable” online casinos while avoiding the “dodgy” ones?

When choosing an online casino to play at, one should always take into consideration the following points:

Licensed casino

Is the casino licensed? While many online casinos are licensed, a significant number of casinos are not. There are plenty of unlicensed, illegal gambling casinos which are nothing more than money scam operations. One should always avoid these casinos at all costs.

Where is the casino licensed?

While online casinos licensed in Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Kahnawake, Netherlands Antilles, United Kingdom and the West Indies are recommended, online casinos licensed in Eastern Europe should be approached with extreme caution.

24/7 Support

Does the casino offer 24/7 phone, fax, live chat and email support? Test the casino’s customer service department by asking them a few questions about their games, bonuses, etc and measure how long it takes to receive a decent response.

Professional Recogition

Is the online casino officially recognised by various gaming bodies and authorities? For instance, are the payout percentages of the online casino independently reviewed by auditors such as PricewaterhouseCoopers? Is this information made publicly available?


Is the online casino blacklisted for any reason? There are many casinos which have been blacklisted by several gambling portals for one reason or another. Although not all blacklists are credible sources of information, one should avoid online casinos which appear in several blacklists.


Casino software providers such as iGlobalMedia, Microgaming, Playtech, Random Logic, Real Time Gaming and WaterLogic are very popular and have excellent reputations in the online gambling industry.

With so many online casinos coming and going, and with so many cons and scams surfacing on the internet everyday, one needs to be especially careful when registering one’s credit card with or transferring money to an online casino. The above set of guidelines may not completely safeguard the player, but they are nevertheless a good set of common sense points to go by when choosing an online casino to play at.

A Lesson In Money Management

by: John Colanzi

It disturbs me when I read about marketers who’ve lost a
ton of money promoting their ventures.

I’ve seen messages by marketers who’ve spent as much as
$9,000 without making a cent. What’s even more disturbing
is the fact that many of them have spent that money and
haven’t learned a thing.

They’ve not only spent all their savings, they think the
problem will be solved by spending more money. They’re
chasing their losses.

They aren’t building a business, they are gambling. The
more they lose, the more they spend.

There’s only one question to ask yourself before parting
with your hard earned money.

“Will spending this money make me more money?”

I learned that lesson in the brick and mortar world real
fast. I had just hocked my soul to buy a small business.

Before I even made a profit, I asked a friend about
knocking down a wall.

I still remember our conversation.

“Paul I’m thinking about knocking down that wall.”

Paul looked at me and said, “John do you really think it
will make you more money?”

That answer was a wake up call. My decision was based more
on ego, than it was on sound money management.

I’m still thankful I never tore down that wall.

Every dollar you spend, must bring back more than a dollar
in profits.

If you break even, you’ve lost money. You have a hole in
the bottom of your bucket.

You must save money in your personal life and in your
business venture as well.

The next time you’re ready to spend money on a product or
service, ask yourself; “Will this make me more money?”

If the answer isn’t a resounding yes, put your credit card
away. Make decisions based on profits, not ego.
