Tips to spot a serious business online

The popularity of online games is increasing with every year. More and more people start playing from their own homes instead of going out to physical casinos. This trend has a lot to do with the benefits of online platforms. First of all, players do not have to leave their homes anymore, no conversations or loud noises are disturbing the concentration and they can rely on secure financial transaction methods without carrying a lot of cash.

Additionally, online casinos offer a wide range of different games and even the nostalgic gamers do not have to miss out on the classic slot machines. But are those slot machines safe? How can one be sure of it when it is an algorithm instead of a mechanical process? Should fans of those games still go to the normal casinos?

Online slot machines are accessible directly via the browser. Therefore, they can be played from any device. Some variations require real money, but also test matches are available. Who wants to play with real money, however, should make sure to find a serious online casino. Therefore, it is a good idea to first check and compare some online casinos with the help of ranking lists like New UK Casinos 2022. Additionally, those three things should be checked before playing:


Like traditional casinos, every online casino also has to get a specific license to start the business. However, those licenses do not guarantee completely fair conditions but they can be an indicator for it. With the license an online casino agrees to certain conditions, which however can vary in different countries. Therefore, it can be a good idea to check in which country the online casino is based and to read the terms and conditions before playing for money.

Transparency and lure offer

An online casino is a business as well as other businesses. Therefore they try to lure customers into their products with marketing and branding strategies but also with sales or special offers. Online casinos often try to attract customers by promising certain winnings. But it is a good idea to be careful about such offers because they usually come with specific conditions. If those conditions are not easily accessible, if one has to search a long time to find them or they are not mentioned at all, this can be an indication for a lack of seriousness of the business.

The following information should therefore be presented clearly and transparently:

  • Information on licensing
  • Easy accessible terms and conditions
  • Statements on the payout ratio or percentage, how the winnings distributed to the players are. To note her: The payout ratio can vary from game to game but 95 % is considered a rule of thumb)
  • Information on gambling addiction, prevention, and help


As a last point, the possible payment methods should be checked on secure transaction methods. Even if the online casino is serious, it might attract scammers and thieves. If the payment methods are not safe enough, third parties might steal some data like credit card information.
