How To Choose An Online Casino

Online casino gambling has gained in popularity over the years. But not all online casinos are created equal. So, how do you choose an online casino? What should you look for? What sites should be avoided? This article attempts to answer these and other questions about online casino gambling.

NB: Before reading this article, please refer to our Terms of Use disclaimer relating to Casino & Gambling information posted on this website.

1. Casino License

All gambling establishments require that you deposit money to play, and they must have a license to perform such activities. This license is issued only after thorough verification by the relevant authorities. Most websites for online gambling in South Africa have such a license. However, not every license is a guarantee that the casino can be trusted.

As a rule, if an online institution has a license, then information about it is displayed at the bottom of the main page. In South Africa, online gambling is illegal, except for online betting through registered bookmakers (eg. horseracing and sports events). As a general rule, look for online casino sites that display the eCOGRA (e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulations and Assurance) logo.

2. Geography of Choice

Not all online casinos accept registration by players from any country. There are certain prohibitions on the game, and you, unfortunately, have no influence on this. It is, therefore, advisable to search for online platforms that allow players from your country to participate. That way, you can easily replenish your account and withdraw money with ease and confidence. In addition, you’ll have a support service that accepts applications in your native language. 

3. Compare and Verify Information

Positive reviews from players and feedback about a casino are good indicators. It is important to read reviews that describe casino user experiences. Consider the ratings and look for the game compilations that the players participated in.

However, many online casino reviews are rated through the websites affiliate program. That is, if the casino pays the site for referring players, then it becomes more profitable for the site to rank the casino in the top of its list. Therefore, do not pay attention to only one site. Get acquainted with the most popular sites, and evaluate the convenience and legality of their interface before making a choice. 


No one will force you to play in a particular casino, it is always your choice. Remember that successful gamblers know when to stop. Hopefully, the tips provided in this article will help you to relax while experiencing some risk gambling in an online casino.
