How to find the best online casino?

There is no doubt about the fact that online casinos are a dime a dozen. Though some countries like Canada and the US may restrict players from frequenting certain types of casinos or playing certain types of games, but there is still a lot to choose from. That said before you decide to fund your online casino account to start playing it would be a good idea to take some time out and do a bit of research to determine if the casino is really worth it.

Check the casino’s license

Checking the license is very easy, start by visiting the casino’s ‘about-us’ page or ‘terms and agreements’, there should be a license number as well as the jurisdiction of the license. The license will tell you where the company is based and if the jurisdiction of the license includes the country or the city you’re residing in. Ideally, you’ll want to play at an online casino based in a country that has a history of strict oversight. So, if there is a dispute or you think that the casino is not being forthcoming you can file a complaint with the gambling board.

If you are still not sure about the license, then an email or call to the gambling board in your area should help to reveal if in fact the casino is licensed. This will help you avoid potential scams from overseas.

Has the RNG of the online casino been independently tested?

RNG stands for Random Number Generator which is at the heart of all casino software. If the RNG is not truly random then the outcome of a game like roulette or the spin of a slots machine can be controlled by the casino. So, all software should be tested independently by a third party. Always check if the RNG has been tested and by whom. If you see the name of a third party on the casino’s website, Google that name to find out more about that third party. Some casinos also mentioned when the RNG was last tested.

Brand recognition

Even though you may be new to gambling but think about if the name comes across as familiar. Ask friends and family members if they recognize the brand. In most cases a recognized brand can be trusted and they are recognized because over the years the casino has managed to build a name for itself. You should be very careful of casinos that you’ve never heard of before or those that even frequent gamblers have not heard of. So, it’s always a safe bet to gamble at a casino that’s well established and recognized even if the bonuses are not huge.

Casino forums

Almost all casinos have a forum and there are also independent online gambling forums you can check. Forums are some of the best places to visit if you need to know more about an online casino. It is a smart idea to check out a casino portal like https://www.online-casino.ca and read reviews before you sign up. You can ask questions and interact with other players. Some online casinos also have portals which can be accessed after you’ve signed up to play. The rule of thumb is that if a casino does not have an active forum, and you’re not seeing any mention of it on third-party online gambling forums then steer clear of it.


We have seen the number of casinos skyrocket in recent years but strict regulation by countries like the US and Canada require that people be more careful about where they gamble. So, it’s always a good idea to keep the above points in mind prior to playing.
