Online casinos (also called online or virtual casinos) – a website on the Internet or a program that allows you to gamble through the Internet. There are two options for starting the game after registration: download special software to the hard disk from the casino site or play games based on online technologies, most often Adobe Flash.
In an online casino you can play for real money and without making cash deposits, but without the opportunity to win (lose) money. You can enter (withdraw) money in various ways: credit cards, bank transfers, special casino cards, online payment systems (Webmoney, E-gold), etc. In the online casino there are the same games as in ordinary casinos: poker, roulette, Blackjack, slot machines (video poker and video slots), keno, baccarat, lottery, etc.
Online gambling is more likely to launder money than regular casinos.
There is no plausible evidence that online games are used to launder criminal money. On the contrary, the facts of such criminal activity in “land” gaming establishments, such as underground casinos and sweepstakes, are constantly recorded.
Online gambling games are more addictive.
This statement does not contain any scientific or statistical grounds. Online games are better monitored than regular forms of games. Usual slot machines, “bars”, “one-armed bandits” and poker machines are addictive exactly the same degree, if not more.
Gambling in Russia is prohibited, and through the Internet too.
The Internet is not the territory of any particular state, therefore it is absolutely legal to place bets through the Internet completely freely. There is even an opportunity to buy lottery tickets, which are distributed only in the United States. Nobody can forbid you to do this.
On the Internet you can run into the “scam” more often.
Exactly the same number of chances as on the street. Before you give your money, carefully study the site. The firm must have statutory documents, address, telephone. For online casinos and bookmakers, there are professional associations whose membership guarantees honesty. Modern software complexes of online casinos provide better control of honesty than in conventional gambling establishments and slot machines. The security of transactions and the transfer of information is guaranteed by the availability of a security certificate on the site.
The gambling business on the Internet can not be regulated by legislation.
This is not true. Online gambling is successfully regulated in many countries of the world: Great Britain, Ireland, the USA, Australia … Russia is no exception.
Online casinos are deceiving.
All the results of the games are generated on the casino server and are then simply forwarded and displayed to the player. Thus, the casino has the full opportunity to manipulate the results. Do this casino actually, and can you check the casino, that’s the question! Here the audit companies are on the scene. Currently, all casinos of the largest software producers Microgaming and Bossmedia, as well as Casino on Net, provide payment reports certified by the audit company. The audit scheme is the following: the audit company sets up its server parallel to the game server, which records the results of all (!) Games played. At the end of the month, the results of the audit server are compared with the results of the casino, and if there are no discrepancies, the audit company signs a report that indicates the percentage of payments for the casino as a whole and for certain groups of games. The figures of payments are indicated on the casino’s website, so you can evaluate the honesty of the casino and decide whether it is worth playing there.
The winnings of online casinos are not paid.
The answer is simple: if this is a major well-known casino, it certainly will pay not only 10, but 100 and more, thousands – win on health.By now, the largest payments in online casinos were more than $ 1.5 million. Do not pay the casino is difficult, and not profitable – the negative opinion of the players will take much more money. Why is it hard not to pay the casino? The fact is that almost all major casinos do not work with finances themselves – financial companies independent of casinos do this. Another protection for players is the producers of game software. They can revoke the license from the offending casino (the license is very expensive), and some companies even additionally insure the players’ accounts for the jackpot won.
The myth of “newcomers” and “lucky ones.”
Beginners are lucky – also from the genus “go do not laugh, come out not crying”. From the point of view of psychology, the newcomer does not know anything and does not clog his head with such stereotypes as “now I’m not lucky again”, “again this person is sitting here”, “again the dealer of another”, etc., so newcomers are lucky !! They do not expect anything, because they do not know what exactly to expect.) In the case of lucky ones, almost all the same, only they have the confidence that this will help them win, this or that attribute. In fact, this is an ordinary training, which they have scored for themselves, plus an equally important fact – such people are self-confident, and as you know, money likes strong and confident people! Well, not the least role is played by the well-known fact that the idea is material.
It is not possible to win at an online casino.
Winning online casino is also real, as in a regular casino and even very good. And here there is an advantage in a virtual casino before the real one. Having won a large sum, you can safely pick it up by transferring it to your account / credit card or by check through the bank. Unlike real casinos, where you can not get to withdraw your winnings so calmly. You can be very trivial “put on the money” or politely suggest giving the casino a chance to recoup, until you lose all that you won.
You can hack an online casino and collect the money as needed.
In fact, hacking the program is not so easy, if only theoretically. In practice, you need to crack the server where the game itself is, bypassing many programs to blockers and interceptors. You will be noticed as soon as you try to do something. Throw this venture. This is criminally punishable.
If you find a hole, you can earn a lot of money!
It’s unreal! If only a little more than usual, because in the states of online casinos there are always programmers who find such breaches and eliminate them, doing a lot of checks and selections from the winning people. So it is possible, but … as if not to leave all your hard money with this way of earning.
