Getting Started

It doesn't take long to get started in the exciting world of online casino gaming. In fact, you can be up and running within a matter of minutes if you follow the step-by-step guide:

1 - Choose Your Casino
The first thing you need to do is choose a casino you want to play at. Whilst you could tempt fate by closing your eyes and picking a casino at random, a far better method of finding a trustworthy casino is to select one based on our reviews. This allows you to choose you casino based on the games available, the bonuses currently being offered or any other variable that is particularly important to you. Another advantage of choosing a reviewed casino is that you can be confident that it is trustworthy and secure.

2 - Download the Software
Some casinos are "Instant Casinos" which allow you to play casino games in your normal web browser. Others require you to download their own casino software to the hard drive of your PC. Downloaded software generally gives you access to more games, and in most cases it is very simple to set up, with installation taking place automatically if you follow the prompts that appear on your screen. Just click the DOWNLOAD button (or equivalent) on the home page of your chosen casino and you will be guided through the rest of the installation process.

3 - Open an Account
Whilst some casinos allow you to play for fun without opening an account, a full account will be necessary for you to play with real money. Opening a new account is, once again, very straightforward. All you need to provide is your name, address, e-mail address and other basic information such as your chosen username and password. Of course, if you want to play with real money there is one more step that you will need to take, and that is...

4 - Make a Deposit
There are plenty of different ways to fund your online casino account. Most online casinos will give you bonus when you make your first deposit, and a list of the best deposits around can be found elsewhere on this site. Credit and debit cards are commonly used to deposit funds, but if you don't want to use either of these methods then the most popular alternatives are Bank Wire, Personal Cheque, Neteller, Quick Cash or Postal Order.

When you have followed these four simple steps you are ready to start playing and winning some money. Just be sure to check out our Top 10 Tips for playing at online casinos when you get the chance!
