Do online casinos pay? is one of the most commonly asked questions I get.
Yes, in the most fundamental sense. However, the solution needs some explanation.
To begin with, internet gambling in the United States is at best a hazy area because to recent and extraordinary legal hostilities in the United States. Even if the controversial recent legislation ostensibly prohibiting online gambling is found to be unconstitutional, a US citizen should probably avoid trying out new casinos and sportsbooks because some unscrupulous operators will undoubtedly use the legal climate to justify confiscating deposits and winnings. As a result, this essay is aimed at those nations where online gambling is still legal.
If you choose online casinos at random, the odds of being ripped off are quite high, either by software that is clearly meant to cheat or, more commonly, by not being paid if you win. The amount of shady casinos in general is estimated to be between 10-15 percent.
However, picking online casinos at random would be foolish. On the internet, there is a lot of information on which sites pay and which do not.
The fact that a casino is regulated in the terrestrial gaming sector is the one absolute guarantee that it would not defraud you. This is what I refer to as the “bricks and mortar” idea. Obviously, a company with a solid offline reputation and track record isn’t going to start defrauding gamers on the first day it goes online.
Casino chains in the United Kingdom and Australia are carefully controlled by gaming boards with actual fangs, either directly or indirectly in the case of the United Kingdom. As a result, you will never be taken advantage of by companies like William Hill or Lasseters. Unfortunately, there aren’t many of these well-run, well-regulated casinos.
The second thing to think about when it comes to an online casino is whether or not it pays. Find out whether anyone else has played at the casino you’re considering. If they’ve just been paid, there’s a strong probability you will as well.
