This is to save beginners like you from committing the same mistakes as they did. Or, at least, minimize the probability of committing these mistakes over and over again. This list is a summary of the serious mistakes from the confession of some professional online gamblers in the world. Make sure to read this article and learn from it because it will help a lot in your gambling and gaming life.
Using fake credentials in the registration of an account
Some rookies, especially those with zero experience in online gaming, are more prone in committing this gambling mistake. Because of shyness and fear of being intimidated, some beginners prefer to create a 100% anonymous account. They enter false information and the most common entries are names and address. Believe me. You will regret this one day if you push yourself in creating a false account. You should bear in mind that every reputable casino will make a strong effort in double checking your account details before paying out your winnings. Just in case you enter the wrong information and you win, immediately, take time to say goodbye to your earnings! You should be confident that this information is kept private from any third party at all times. And this will lead us to the next common and serious mistake – registering in an untrustworthy casino!
Registering at an untrustworthy casino
This is listed as the second common and serious mistake for rookies, but, in my own perspective, I can rate this as my first. Why? Because registering on an untrustworthy site may bring a lot of danger to your personal and financial life. Imagine that all your personal and payment information are entered during the registration process. It is very risky! That is why it is necessary to check the licensing details before sharing your personal details. It should be licensed and regulated by a reputable Gambling Authorities, Regulatory Boards and Commissions to ensure the safety and security of your account. Don’t let your funds move out from your own hands just because you made this kind of mistake.
Failure to check if payment method is accepted
Sometimes, we become illogical especially when it comes to moments when our emotions are high. We tend to check what games are offered in the site and that’s it – just the games in the site. We fail to check and realize that the payment method we prefer to use is not applicable to the casino site where we registered our account. We took time in providing every required information and ends up wasting our precious time. Therefore, to save you from wasting time and effort, make sure to check every detail of the casino. Always remember that each online casino has its own preferred method of payment and register, only, if it applies to you.
Failure to read the terms and conditions
Every business engagement has its unique terms and conditions which guides both parties in their ventured business agreement. Never skip reading any word enclosed in its terms and conditions because you can use it as a protection for your rights as a gambler. At the same time, this document can also be used against you just in case you go beyond what’s right. There are lots of complaints that are turned into a lifeless complaint simply because it is stated in the term’s tab.
Not knowing how bonuses work
There are plenty of free cash, welcome bonuses and free spins that are quite attractive to most new players. It may sound real fun and exciting to claim everything, but, I suggest that you religiously read the terms and conditions (again) for you to know if there are any restrictions, percentage bonus match or wagering requirements attached to it. Remember that in any casino, may it be land-based or online, it is programmed with the house edge and they may use those freebies in their advantage. So be extra careful and keep an eye in the rules stated per casino.
