Some casino players choose their online casino based on the deposit bonus. Bonus is of course important but you need much more information before you register and deposit to an online casino.
First of all you have to be sure that the casino is honest, secure and financially sound. If the casino is dishonest or bankrupt it doesn’t matter that the deposit bonus is 500% up to $5000.
You should not just go for the highest deposit bonus you could find. Most casino bonuses comes with wagering requirements and strict rules. You have to read the bonus terms to find out if the bonus suits your needs.
Deposit and withdrawal options. For non-US players the best banking options is credit cards or Neteller. But for US players Neteller is not available and it is often difficult to make credit card deposits at online casinos; credit card purchases that are labelled as gambling related are no longer allowed to go through. But there are lots of alternative casino deposit options like Click2Pay, Citadel and Moneybookers available. Make sure that the casino you choose supports the banking option that suits you best.
And if you are from the US, you have to make sure that the casino accepts US players.
Many people choose an online casino based on the software it uses, and rightly so. Software can and should be tested for inherent fairness. There are several top casino software companies that produce an outstanding, fairness certified software product. Microgaming, Playtech, Vegas Technology, Cryptologic and RTG are the main ones.
Support: You should make sure that there is a phone number for you to call if you run into troubles. Does the casino offer real time chat mode support or is the player support only handled via email? You would like to have several convenient ways to contact the player support. Generally support staff should be available 24/7.
