Online casinos generate a lot of profit that is why this business is so popular. New gambling websites are opened almost every week. Currently, there are about 500 internet casinos so it is rather difficult to decide which one is better. When choosing a casino, you should pay attention to particular features not every player is aware of.
How to Choose the Best Casino
In order to choose a good casino, first find out whether it accepts players from your country or not, and what its payment terms are (the minimum withdrawal amount, the documents required, etc.). Only after that you can assess the support service, the casino’s popularity, website design and other less important factors.
In our list, we tried to specify the peculiarities an online casino should have.
Gamblers from Your Country Are Allowed to Play
First, it should be confirmed that the casino accepts players from your country. If you register and play on the website that does not accept users for your country, then be prepared that in case of winning the casino will refuse to pay after you are not able to confirm your residence.
Every legal online casino is registered in a specific country or jurisdiction. To manage such casinos, gambling must be allowed in the country. Usually, the company obtains a license either from the state authorities or a jurisdiction that profit from the gambling business (Malta, Curaçao, Gibraltar, etc.).
If the casino does not pay winnings, you can complain to its regulator, which issued the license. Of course, the regulator will always be on the side of the casino, but a really good regulator will assess the situation objectively. In case of serious violations, the casino’s license may be revoked by the regulator.
Experience has shown that some casinos (registered in Costa Rica, Panama, Anjouan, Seychelles) do not have complaint forms. In this case, the chances of getting through to the regulator are minimal.
There are regulators that could solve the problem, but their influence is insignificant. These regulators include Curacao and Gibraltar.
Malta, Alderney and the Isle of Man are considered good regulators. In case of conflict, there is a chance to achieve justice.

Ability to Withdraw Large Amounts at High Bets
Let's consider the insurance company. Would you insure your house in the company that offered for your house a lesser amount than its value? Most likely you wouldn’t. If the house burns down, then you will have to sue the company. And if it goes bankrupt, then you won’t get any compensation.
Same thing with online casinos. If you won a large amount and were able to withdraw it, then consider yourself lucky, because most often casinos are trying to cheat and not pay. And it may happen that the casino simply does not have that amount of money. In this case, it’s not even a fraud, but the lack of financial capacity.
Some slots have a high variance. For example, if you bet 50 euros, you can win 250,000 euros. Online casinos rarely set betting limits; that is why they receive big money from rich players. Reliable casinos set limits in order to protect themselves from the payments they can’t afford. In this case, you will at least understand that the casino does not have much money and there is a possibility that the payout of the winnings will be dragging on for years. Irresponsible casinos do not solve this problem at all, but only hope that no one will win such a large amount.
For this reason, before you start playing, evaluate the casino’s financial stability. Make sure it has the ability to pay out big money. Otherwise, if you win a large amount and the casino refuses to pay, you will receive nothing but frustration and disappointment.
In addition, you need to be aware of the withdrawal limitations. Every month you are allowed to withdraw no more than 3,000 euros. The withdrawal of 250,000 euros can take 7 years. During this time, the casino can go bankrupt, and then you do not get your money at all.

Wide Range of Popular Games
If you like a particular game, then most likely you will be looking for it. In our list of online casinos, you can find not only your favorite game but also your favorite developer.
All players have different preferences in games. Most prefer board games are blackjack, baccarat and roulette. If you also like table games, then when choosing a casino, pay attention to their game assortment. A good casino usually offers several types of blackjack and roulette. For example, if you do not like classic roulette, then you can always play another variation. Roulette with a jackpot, as well as roulette with the possibility of additional bets (Key Bet Roulette) are quite popular.
Another popular game category is slots. Make sure the casino offers a sufficient number of slot machines. A good casino offers both classic slots (Sizzling Hot Deluxe or Book of Ra) and progressive jackpot slots (Mega Moolah).
Are you interested in instant lotteries? Unfortunately, not every casino provides their players with this game, but its variation – scratch cards – is available among many of them.

Attractive and Profitable Bonuses
Each online casino is trying to attract visitors through promotions in the form of bonuses. Proper use of bonuses can help you to significantly reduce spending. Some players manage to carry out fraud and receive a decent profit from bonuses.
It is very well if you have already played in a casino. In this case, you already know that as soon as new bonuses appear, you can request them. However, you can do this only if you have never misused them. There are several types of bonuses, but some of them may have a limit on withdrawal, while others may be received only after replenishing the gaming account. Also, there is a deposit bonus at registration, which is equal to the amount of the deposit. Despite this, the bonus will limit the size and type of the bet. In addition, you will not be able to withdraw money until you comply with the wager’s conditions.
Availability of Mobile Version
With the advent of phones and tablets, players have significantly reduced the volumes of playing on the PC. Why should you be sitting at the computer instead of lying on the couch with a gadget and playing favorite games there? Moreover, if the online casino has a mobile version, it is twice as convenient.
Several Payment Methods
When choosing a casino, check out the methods of depositing and withdrawing funds. Find out the amount of commission and bank transfer waiting time. Transaction processing through the bank can last for up to 7 days.
Many players prefer using Skrill and Neteller e-wallets or the prepaid Paysafecard. Less popular are deposits via a mobile operator.
As mentioned earlier, an event dedicated to the gambling industry legalization in Ukraine – Kyiv iGaming Affiliate Conference – took place this week in the capital city.
