Seven Simple Tips for Poker Newbies
25 November 2011
1) Watch before you play: Some casinos will randomly place you at a table, but others will give you a choice as to what group you join. Either way, you should take a moment to watch the chemistry at the tables before you play. See how the betting is going and who the power players are. Having a feel for the rhythm of the table before you start to play gives you an edge.
2) Lurk for a bit: The worst thing you can do when sitting down at a new table is to try and take charge of the game, either by placing huge wagers in an attempt to control the hand, or by simply talking up a storm at a table where quiet contemplation is the norm. You don’t want the table to unite against you based off first impressions.

Which Online Casino Has Comp Points worth Collecting and Why?
21 November 2011
The main aim of these programs is to encourage players to carry on spending money and playing at their casino on a regular basis. They promise to then reward these loyal players for their efforts. The more frequently someone plays (in real cash mode) at a casino, the more points he or she will earn and therefore climb the ranks. These points can be referred to as comp points, loyalty points or frequent player points (FPP).
There are usually different levels or ‘tiers’ to each loyalty scheme ranging from between three to eight different levels. Each tier will come with its own special rewards and perks that a player can benefit from. Many casinos give the player the first level of loyalty complimentary, but others will make them work for their position within the ranks

There are certain standards that players will notice with accredited online casinos that weaker online casinos simply won’t have. It’s simple, no certification, don’t trust them. If a casino claims that they are the ‘Number 1 Casino in Europe’, and have this advertised in bright neon letters, it is sure to fool hundreds of people, but where did they obtain this fact, who voted for them to become the ‘Number 1 Casino in Europe’, and what was the organisation that awarded the website with this accreditation?
This is an obvious example of how some casinos can award themselves with fake accreditations that should simply be ignored. It is hard for a ‘newbie’ (new player) to ever realise that these websites will say anything to get you to sign up. Unfortunately many players get misled.

In simple language, players must spend a certain amount of cash before even thinking of receiving the bonus. This will require plenty of time spent at the casino and by only playing on selected games. If the wagering requirements are not met within the selected period of time, players can wave goodbye to their bonus, which seemed quite realistic when they first started playing.
When the actual wagering requirements are realised, it doesn’t take a genius to see that if a player does actually manage to wager the required amount, they have been very lucky. Players will need to spend plenty of hours on the computer. In fact, several hours of solid playing time per day is generally what it would take to fully receive the bonus cash. If you only have a few spare hours per week, there is very little chance that you will benefit from the special offer.

Top 5 Online Casino Bonus Terms & Conditions to Look Out For
16 November 2011
Everything is clearly explained in the Terms and Conditions (T’s & C’s) regarding all promotions. A player should thoroughly read through these and if they are unsure about any of the information, they should contact the customer support. Failing to fully understand the T’s & C’s could result in disappointment. If the support are either less than willing to help you or don’t explain things clearly, you should try your luck elsewhere and leave this casino alone.

The State of Online Gambling on Mobile Devices
14 November 2011
Just a few years ago, mobile gambling was introduced, where players could place a bet on their favourite sport, or even on the X-Factor results. Now players can enjoy playing on Poker Apps from their favourite poker site. If their favourite site hasn’t launched an App by now, you can be pretty sure that the company has an application that is currently being developed or is already in the pipeline.
From the birth of mobile sports gambling, and to the introduction of poker apps, payers can also now experience a range of casino games, accessible from their mobile device, wherever they may be. People could be sat on a park bench or on their way home from work on public transport, fully immersed in one of the numerous casino games such as Roulette, Blackjack or Video Poker that are now available. Players can also play on Slots and Instant Win Games such as a Scratch Card (Scratchies). Other games that are proving to be popular on mobile devices include both Keno and Bingo.

How do you do your Due Diligence on an Online Casino?
12 November 2011
This is where organisations such as e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) were set up to ask the right questions and perform the necessary checks on the player’s behalf. This (non-profit) organisation was in fact set up and established by one of the industry’s largest online casino software providers, Microgaming. The aim was to have an auditor who could scrutinise an online casino and carry out the necessary checks that a player simply could not do on their own.

Casinos that have been around for longer generally have a better reputation compared with recently launched casinos, because of their impeccable track record regarding customer service, payouts, security and overall integrity, as well as the countless reviews that show them in a good light. It’s impossible for a new casino to instantly gain a good reputation, unless they happen to be owned by an already trusted and responsible operator.

Prior to signing up and registering a real cash account at one of the many online casinos, players can test the water by contacting the customer service and asking a few questions. One way of contacting them is by using the Live Chat feature, but not all online casinos have this option. If a casino doesn’t have a Live Chat feature, they will definitely have telephone support and either an email address to contact them on or an online email entry form. Most of the reputable casinos have Live Chat. Some of the online casinos may only grant access to their live chat to registered members only.
There may be different telephone numbers available depending on which country you are located in. Therefore the support language may also vary so dial the number which is most relevant to you. If you send an email, or use the online email entry form, you can expect a response from the support within a maximum of 48 hours.

The worst thing that a player can experience is a faulty Random Number Generator (RNG) when playing their favourite game online. Many people say that the games online are fixed, or rigged in some way to favour the house, but this is not true. However, this could be said of a rogue operator who is purposely out to scam people. These minority online casinos are very few and far between, but they do operate. Some players do occasionally get caught out and lose money at these casinos. This could be down to the RNG’s that have been used and manipulated to give less than fair outcomes.
Remember that the house always wins so just because you may have had a few straight losses in a row, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the online casinos RNG should be put under the spot light or questioned in any way. This is just down to both bad luck AND realistic outcomes. If you were to have 10 straight wins in a row, would you question the RNG?

Are Online Slots Really Random? How does it Work?
06 November 2011
The short answer is yes.
Online casinos use a Random Number Generator, which is usually abbreviated as an RNG. This is a computer program that is able to consistently produce a random and unique series of numbers every time it is used. The RNG’s used by online casinos determine the outcomes of thousands of Online Slots that are currently available. All outcomes today are determined by algorithm, a computer chip and an RNG. Software RNG’s apply to all online games including Roulette, Dice Games, Video Poker and most other Card and Table Games.
When it comes to randomness, both classic slots and the more advanced multi-lined video slots (including their bonus rounds) all have RNG’s constantly working to produce random outcomes and realistic results. The Random Number is in fact generated by a complex mathematical equation prior to producing a specific output.

Top 5 things to lookout for on T&Cs of online casinos
01 November 2011
There are several rogue casinos out there who promise the world but do very little to keep their promise and when you contact the customer support, they simply throw the Terms and Conditions at you, which to be honest you should have read.
The good news is that most online casinos are operated by reputable owners. The bad news is that on occasion, some will slip through the vast net and go undetected for a while before they surface on the casinoman.net radar and arouse suspicion. There have been a few online casinos that are part of the Virtual Casino group who have been offering their players (both new and old) a string of daily and weekly special offers in the form of a coupon code system.
