If you take a look online, you will find a wide range of online casinos, but you will never be able to go through each and every one. If you feel like trying your luck at roulette, blackjack or online bingo, it would be wise to first try and find an online casino and online bingo that suits your needs.

In order to locate the right online casino, there are some common characteristics which you can look out for.  When looking for a good casino online make sure they offer all casino games like slots, roulette and blackjack, and a good sign up bonus offer. Other characteristics are as follows:

1. The design of the website

When you visit a website and you find that the design is very poor, you should avoid playing there. Badly designed websites are usually the ones that have a bad reputation for game play. You should always choose a site which has excellent navigation, is easy to use and one is appealing to the eye.

2. Casino licenses

In order to play safe, one of the important things you should check, with any gambling site, is that it has a license. The license should be easily accessible so that users can read it. Regardless of the residing country, an online casino must have a license.

3. Customer support

You will know when an online casino is a good one if it has good customer support. Go to the support section on the site and test it out. Ask a few questions and see how long it takes for them to respond and how helpful the answer is. You should also have the option to contact the casino by telephone. Check to see if there is a ‘contact us’ section on the site which displays a contact address and phone number.

4. Player bonuses

When it comes to using an online casino, there will always be bonuses offered to users as an incentive and every good website has them. Bonuses come in various forms and not just as cash bonuses. Browse around the site and see if you can find any bonuses that the casino provides. These are usually done with payment partners such as Neteller.

5. Software

Every casino should use software which is licensed. Good casinos will only use software created by top recognized companies such as Microgaming. If you find that the website is using some sort of budget or self made software, you should not use it.

6. The gambling community

If you are still unsure of the reliability and credibility of a casino or internet gambling, you can always join a gambling community. To do this, simply conduct a search using Google with the name of the company you want to find out about, along with key words such as “fraud”. If there are any issues related to the website, it will show up in the search results with links to the forum/community where the topic is being discussed. Always keep an open mind when reading these forums because some people are just mad about having lost money.
