How To Get Started?
Just visit the website of the casino you want to open an account with. You’ll find the option to register on the home page and you’ll just have to supply a few basic details about yourself in order to open an account. Once registered you’ll need to link a deposit method to your account so you can transfer funds to play with.
How old do I have to be to play at an online casino?
To play for real money at most online casinos you must be a minimum of 18 years of age. In some jurisdictions you might need to be older. You must abide by the applicable laws in your area. If you are not of legal age you can practice and participate in all games where real money is not involved.
What is a welcome bonus?
Most online casinos offer new players a ‘welcome bonus’ which “matches” a first deposit 100 or 200%. First, deposit and play eligible games over a set time period. Any deposited cash must be “wagered” in order for the bonus money to be claimed. It’s common to wager a deposit 30-40 times over before being able to withdraw the cash.
How do I know if a casino is safe?
All good online casinos are protected with SSL (Secure Socket Layers) encryption. These ensure that players’ details and funds are kept safe. It is a stipulation of a licenced casino that funds are segregated in the case of a big win. Age verification is also performed on anyone making a withdrawal.
Is there limits on how much I can withdraw?
Yes, although this will depend on the withdrawal method and the casino.
For example, at 5Dimes you can get a cashier’s check up to $7,500. The limit on money orders is $9,500. The limit on Bitcoin is $10,000. And the limit on bank wires is $9,500.
Limits are usually per request, week, or month.
The best way to find out about a casino’s limits is to read casino reviews. All that info is covered there.
Can I play without using real money?
Many casinos let you try games out for free with ‘practice money’. Some will let you try games out without the need to register or log in first.
