Beginners Guide to Gambling Online


Gambling Online started in 1997 and has grown to over $12 billion in 2006. Some of the first online casinos had flawed software, gaping holes in their cash transfer systems and there were even rumors of organized crime involvement in some of the gambling sites. Nearly 10 years later, the online gambling industry is better regulated, most of the software provides excellent graphics, and technology has helped provide a "safer" environment for online gambling. 


With that being said, all online gambling sites must be safe, right? Absolutely Not! Even with the best software and secure systems, it is the management behind the casino that determine the reliability and safety of a online casino. Any Casino that is recommended by Gambling Wiz provides you a safe, secure and fair gambling experience.

Frequently Asked Questions


Every jurisdiction has its own laws governing online gambling and most are pretty clear as to whether online gambling is legal or not. Most of the these countries, like the UK or Antigua, understand that it is nearly impossible to prevent its citizens from gambling online and take the approach that they want online gambling to be safe.


The legality of online gambling in the U.S. is much more complicated, even though it is estimated that 90% of all gambling online is from the U.S. A handful of states have passed legislation banning online gambling even though at the Federal level, there has not been a particular law passed specifically banning online gambling.


The bottom line is that you should check with your local jurisdiction.


You must be at least 18 years old to wager real money at Online Casinos.


Online Casinos are licensed under various jurisdictions like Kahnawake Gaming Commission, Antigua, Costa Rica and others. Obviously, some of these jurisdictions are more stringent then others when it comes to issuing new gaming licenses and ongoing reporting requirements.


Most of the casino software is designed to provide fair and random play, just like a brick and mortar casino. Many also have their "random number generators" reviewed by auditing firms to assure players of the "fairness" of their software. As for honesty, there is wide gap in honest casinos, not because of their software, but rather their management. What good is the best software in the world if management refuses to pay you your winnings?  I only recommend casinos that I have personally played and know the integrity of their management team.


Sure, however I need to devote an entire page. Go to Differences in Casino Software for the answer.


I designed so that my visitors could view casinos that I recommend, as well as be able to review casinos by payout percentages, bonuses, software and groups. Generally speaking, any casino that I have listed will provide you with a fair and honest gambling experience.


This is a very complicated question and I have devoted an entire page its answer. Go to Casino Payouts for the answer.


Casinos typically make depositing funds into your account fairly easy to do and offer many options for doing so. Some of the more popular options are Neteller, Citadel, FirePay, PaySpark and Click2Pay. You can also deposit funds by check, money order or wire transfer. Some casinos like InterCasino have their own electronic cash system built into their software (Cryptologic).


Typically, you can withdraw funds in the same manner you deposited the money, however it does vary by casino. Some casinos may charge a nominal processing fee.
