Online Casino Frequently Asked Questions

Publishing: December 22, 2015

There are lots of questions that players frequently tend to ask about online casinos, but we will only be taking a look at a few of the most common frequently asked questions that pertain specifically to online casinos. Some of the main topics of discussion include online casino registration, online casino banking, online casino security and online casino software installation.

Let’s start by taking a look at one of the top F.A.Q’s pertaining to the registration process. One of the first questions generally posed by players is “How do I register at the casino?” This is a really straightforward answer. To be able to play in the real money mode you need to register at your chosen casino. Only after completing the simple online casino application form can you play in the real money mode.

Players also often ask, “How do install the free software? When you decide that you want to play at any particular casino, you generally have the option of being able to play either instantly in your web browser or you can play from within a perfectly secure download client. We recommend installing the free casino software onto your computer to really get the most out of what the casino has to offer (e.g. more games, more promotions etc.) The download should start straight away, so just follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation process.

Players also often ask, “How do I deposit at the casino and what is the minimum deposit amount?” Making a deposit at an online casino is also really straightforward. You can choose from a range of different methods which usually include Credit & Debit Cards such as Visa, MasterCard and Maestro, plus most other credit/debit cards are also accepted.

You can also choose from a wide range of e-Wallets (aka Web Wallets or Virtual Wallets). Some of the best ones include Skrill, NETELLER and PayPal and almost every e-wallet allows you to deposit AND withdraw. Once you have chosen one of these methods, you then need to add funds to that particular method and then all you need to do is follow the onscreen instructions that apply to your chosen payment method. The minimum deposit amount at most of today’s online casinos will range anywhere from AU$5.00 to AU$20.00

There are several other ways of being able to add funds to your online casino account such as prepaid cards (e.g. Ukash and Paysafecard), Cheques/Checks and also by Direct Bank Transfer but these methods generally only allow you to deposit and NOT to withdraw, therefore depositing with a prepaid card is great, but you would need to find another way of withdrawing when it comes to cashing out your winnings.

Players also often ask “Are my funds in safe hands at online casinos?” or “Are my credit card details in safe hands?” or words to that effect. The answer is ‘yes’. Your personal details, funds and any transactions that you process to and from the casino are always being protected by the very latest 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, so you have nothing to worry about. Should anything ever go wrong you can generally contact the player support at any decent online casino via email, live chat and also usually by toll-free telephone.

Another question that players usually ask is “How old do I have to be to play at an online casino?” The answer in most countries is 18 years old, but in some countries you may need to be at least 21 to gamble in the real money mode.
