New to Online Gambling?

For everyone who has heard so much about online gambling, but have been hesitant to actually give it a try, we’ve put together a short guide to help you address some of your fears and concerns.

Is online gambling safe?

This is the first question a lot of beginners ask themselves, can i rely and trust online casinos? With our experience and expertise the answer is yes. We have played on almost every casino on this site and have registered our VISA card too and we have never had any problems with that or to cash out money. No online casino would have any benefit of deceive their players because they have invested a lot of money to start the casino and they can't afford a bad reputation.

Which casino should I choose to play at?

The Internet is loaded with online casinos these days, each one claiming better odds and greater software and payout percentage. This is why Gambling Prophet has created a list of recommended casinos that we guarantee will be honest, reputable, and have had no complaints from any of our visitors.

Okay, I’ve found a casino. Now how do I play?

Most casinos require you to download their software (similar to downloading, say, a video game) in order to begin gambling on their site. There is no reason to be concerned; the download and software are 100% safe, and are no different from any other download. Follow the instructions and download the software to an area on your computer that will be easy to locate.

Why do I have to register?

Once you’ve downloaded your casino software you’ll need to register at the casino before you can begin to play or access any of the casino games. The reason you need to register is to provide the casino with your contact information, so that they know who to contact and who to send your winnings to. Make sure that the information you provide is accurate, and once again, you can be assured that it is 100% safe. As soon as registration is complete, you’ll be provided with a username and password. Be certain that you write it down somewhere and keep it in a safe place; you will be responsible for all activity on your account.

I’ve got my software, I registered my account, now what?

So it looks like you’re ready to play! Online casinos offer just about every game currently offered at traditional land-based casinos. If you already have experience playing, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the casino software before starting to play, and good luck! If you’d like to hone your skills before beginning, you can access our Guide: Gambling Strategies, and read up on all of your favorite casino games.

I have a credit card but I’m scared to submit it online, what else can I use?

Most online casinos offer various options to fund your account. If you’re uncomfortable using your credit card, you can most likely use options such as, Western Union, a bank wire transfer,, and -- to name but a few.

Do people ever win playing at online casinos?

They sure do! As a matter of fact, online casinos have a higher payout than land-based casinos.

I won! Now how do I get paid?

Most casinos have a “cash out” or redemption button for you to click to initiate a check request. Since most casinos are located outside the U.S., mail delivery may take a few weeks. However, you will have lots of options available to you, including express check delivery, or you can have your PayPal or NetTeller account credited almost immediately after making your request.
