Beginner's Guide to Online Gambling

Want to try online gambling, but don't know where to start?

There are many sites who offer you free gambling money that requires no deposit to try out their site. These sites offer you "bonus" money, which you are free to use. This "bonus" money usually has requirements attached to it. This varies from site to site, so check the Terms and Conditions.

Usually the free or bonus credits have to be "played through" a certain number of times and all games do not qualify in meeting these conditions. "Playing through" does not mean "lose". You can win and still meet the requirements. For example if the playthrough is 20x and you were given $20, you would need to wager (place bets) which would total a minimum of $400 before you would be able to withdraw.

Interested in poker? There are several sites which give free money to play poker. You can find them on our No Deposit page. You can play poker freerolls without depositing. Some rooms allow cashout from freerolls without making a deposit.

Is online gambling safe? For the most part it is. Unfortunately, there are some bad gambling sites, who have no intention of paying you if you do happen to win with them. You won't find those sites listed here at all, even if they are offering free money. The sites listed here have good reputations and you should not encounter any problems.

So you've found a site you like and would like to deposit How do you make a deposit to a gambling site? There are a number of ways to do this, but an online ewallet is the preferred method. Most of the ewallets, require you to "certify" you are who you say you are by allowing them to make a small deposit to your bank account. You then verify the amount to them that they deposited. One of the big advantages of ewallets, is that they have all your information, such as bank account, etc., but others do not.

Each gambling site has many funding options. You may find that your Visa or MasterCard works at many.

What about withdrawing from a gambling site? Click on cashier, then click on withdraw. It will give you options for making your withdrawal. If you used an ewallet to deposit, you may want to withdraw that way as it is the simpliest method. Most sites allow you to opt for a paper check or in some cases a bank wire for your withdrawal. If your withdrawal is a method other than an ewallet, you may have to verify your identity. Verification is not difficult. You usually need to fax your identification (drivers license, or passport) and a copy of a utility bill to verify your residence. Cashout times vary from site to site.

Do players really win big and get the money? You bet they do!

After faxing identity verifications to the casino, the player's money was sent by bank wire within 7 days.

It's always a good idea to take a screenshot of the winning screen, so if any question arises you have proof of your win.

In Windows: Press the "Print Screen" key to capture the entire screen. The "Print Screen" key is located towards the right top of your keyboard. Press "Alt and Print Screen" at the same time to capture only the current active window. Doing this only saves the screen to your computer, it does not make an image file. You now must "paste" it into an image program such as "Microsoft Paint". To do so, simply open "Microsoft Paint" or "Microsoft Photo Editor", click on "edit", then "paste" from the toolbar at the top. Just one more on "File" and "Save As", this saves it as an image to your computer. Name it something you will remember, such as "BigWin".
