You may have lots of friends who tell you how much they get out of playing online casino games and perhaps you’ve been thinking you’d give it a try too. But many people don’t take it any further than that as they don’t want to give out financial details on the internet and start risking money on games that they might lose.
Of course, this is sensible thinking, and you do have to accept if you play casino games that you will lose some money along the way. Otherwise, if it was a fool-proof way to make money everyone would be doing it all the time! However, many of the online slots UK consumers play aren’t being played for real money.
They’re being played in fun or demo mode, which means that the slot machines gives them a pot of virtual coins to play with, and it’s simply for the thrill of seeing the winning combinations come up on the slots screen that you play. You don’t even need to go onto a casino site to play. Many casino games are now available to play as apps on Facebook and other social networking sites where, again, you’re playing with virtual coins.
There are so many other games that you can play in demo mode that there’s plenty of choice in what to play for free. Yet it has to be said that at the end of the day, any wins with virtual coins do feel a little empty when you know you could be winning with real cash.
That’s probably why so many of the casinos now offer new players the chance to play for real cash prizes on some games, even before they’ve put down their first deposit. Of course, the prizes are small, but it’s a great feeling to get something for nothing, and a few small wins on the freebie games will probably encourage you to put down a deposit and start playing for the bigger jackpots. And you don’t need to worry about the safety of your money. The online casino gaming industry is big business, and closely regulated, and there are many ways of making safe payments online. If you’d rather keep your credit card details to yourself, you could always pay a deposit into a casino through a prepaid voucher or an e-wallet like Paypal.
As long as you can be sensible with the way that you play online casino games, and restrict yourself to wagering only the amounts of money that you can afford to lose, there’s no harm in opening a casino account. Many casinos offer great welcome bonuses – usually in the form of a credit to your account balance that is proportionate to what you’ve paid in. This means you’ve got a great starting pot to play with, half of which has been given to you by the casino. Of course, you should always read the terms and conditions before signing up to a casino for its bonus – there are usually wagering requirements and a time period in which you need to play the bonus money through.
Then again, there’s always the option of simply playing for free – in demo mode at the casinos or on those games that are available to play for free once you’ve signed up with a valid email address. You can’t get safer than that!
