Tips & advice for Australian players

General Gambling Tips


  • Look upon online casino gambling as a form of entertainment and not as a source of livelihood
  • All casino games have a house edge which makes it difficult for you to keep winning on a consistent basis
  • Gamble in a responsible manner by utilising all the facilities provided by online casinos like setting wagering limits
  • Wager at only those online casinos that have been licensed by reputed regulatory authorities and preferably those casinos that have software certified for fairness by independent agencies as well
  • When filling up the particulars during the registration process make sure that each and every item is correct because wrong information can result in your winnings being withheld or account blocked
  • Preferably select a payment option that supports both deposits and withdrawals so as to eliminate receiving your winnings by check payment
  • Send proof of address and identity documents to online casino as soon as possible to prevent rejection of your first withdrawal
  • Opt for online casinos that offer live chat support because it is free, in real time and leaves a written transcript
  • Do not wager at online casinos that do not transact in Australian dollars because currency exchange costs can be significant

Bonuses & promotions Tips


  • Just because a bonus or promotion is offered you are not compelled to claim it or participate in it
  • Bonus fine print includes wagering requirements, games contributions to wagering requirements and cap on winnings that can be withdrawn – understand all three properly
  • Do not attempt to meet wagering requirements on games that contribute less than 100% because then the wagering requirement will multiply manifold
  • Online pokies are the best games for meeting wagering requirements
  • Do not make larger deposits than you can afford in trying to claim large bonuses
  • When claiming a deposit bonus do not forget to enter the bonus code otherwise the bonus will not be credited to your account
  • Many online casinos do not permit you to claim multiple bonuses at the same time and in any event it is always better to claim one bonus at a time
  • If you have a limited bankroll avoid online promotions that award prizes to players that wager the most
  • In prize draw promotions aim for only that many tickets that you can afford and avoid wagering large amounts for more tickets because prizes are not guaranteed
  • Even though freeroll online tournaments have small prizes, they are a good option because you are not risking any amount
  • Be careful not to purchase unnecessary rebuy options or add on options in online tournaments offering these facilities

Games Tips


  • Many online casino games require skill along with luck, so make sure that you are aware of the optimum strategy before you play these games
  • Microgaming online casinos include strategy cards in their blackjack games and are ideal for blackjack players
  • Online craps has many bets with high house edges, so find out which these bets are and avoid them
  • Side bets offered in table games like blackjack and casino poker usually have higher house edges so it is safer to avoid them unless you have evaluated them correctly
  • When the option is available, always activate the maximum number of paylines in online pokies
  • Always play video poker games with maximum number of coins so as to be eligible for the jackpot payout in the highest ranking
  • If you are not clear about the rules of any game, play it in the demo mode while you figure out exactly what the rules mean
  • The download platform in Microgaming casinos allows you to open multiple games at the same time and you can play all of them together on auto play
