How to get started playing at online casinos
Are you thinking about starting to play at online casinos? Online casino sites usually have a wide range of games to choose from, and for a beginner, it can be a little overwhelming to get to grips with them all. So read on for a few quick pointers on how to choose which games to start playing.
Games based purely on luck
Games based on skill and luck
The most popular and well-known games that do not rely solely on luck are blackjack (also known as 21) and poker. Both are card games that require a high level of probability calculation to become really good. In blackjack, you play only against the house, i.e. the casino side, while in poker, you play against other players.
In poker, therefore, as well as being good at probability, you also need to be good at bluffing. Even when playing online, you can “psyche” and manipulate your opponents – just as they can figure you out if you act too predictably. Many people get hooked on games like 21 and poker precisely because they find it fun to feel that they are getting better and better at the game the more they play.
Start by playing for no money

There are many different types of casinos. If you follow the four tips below, you won’t have to worry about getting ripped off:
- Always read through the terms and conditions of the site before creating a profile – and only create one if their terms are fair.
- Always read the terms that come with free spins and other casino bonuses.
