Choosing an online casino to join can be a bit of a minefield simply because of the huge choice on offer. Safety comes first for all gamblers and although unlicensed casinos are now few and far between, it is still best to make absolutely sure that you are joining an establishment that has been licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
What this ultimately means is that the casino meets certain criteria set out by the commission in order to legally operate in the United Kingdom. This includes keeping casino cash used for everyday operations separate from customer cash.
This guarantees that if the casino goes under, only the cash used for casino operations is affected and customer’s funds remain safe and secure.
The next step in the quest for a worthy casino to join comes in the form of welcome bonuses on free demo slots UK. Everyone likes to be made welcome and everyone welcomes freebies, even if they come with strings attached. Most bonuses come in the shape of first deposit match ups.
There is usually a limit and the industry standard is a 100% first deposit match, up to £100. This basically means that if you deposit £20 you will get another £20 from the casino. However, if you deposit £100 then you will get the maximum bonus amount, which is another £100 on top.
Wagering requirements apply otherwise casinos would go out of business fairly quickly. Depending on the size of the casino, wagering requirements can be as little as x20 or as high as x60.
Game weighting is a term used regularly at casinos and it basically means that not all games contribute to wagering requirements equally. Slots usually contribute the most and if any are excluded, then they are usually mentioned in the terms and conditions. Usually your first deposit cash balance is used first and then your bonus cash comes into play. With bonus cash you have to obey casino wagering laws but for the most part, you are free to spin many different slots on the house. You can try your luck on Megaways slots such as Ted Megaways and Gonzo’s Guest Megaways. These slots differ from regular slots because the payline numbers keep chopping and changing on each spin. This is down to extra reels and varying amounts of symbols landing on them. Anything from 2 to 7 symbols can fill each reel and this means winning lines can be a few hundred or a few hundred thousand.
It is always best to increase your chances of winning whilst playing with a first deposit bonus. This can be achieved by using your free play on high RTP games. These are games that return the highest percentage of your staking money back to you. All RTP scores have to be published on all slot games and some of the best high RTP games include Mega Joker, Joker Strike and 1429 Uncharted Seas.
