An Introduction to Online Casinos
Online Casinos are an exciting place for gamblers to spend their hard-earned cash while in a secure and fully licensed online environment. These entertaining gambling portals are otherwise known as internet casinos or virtual casinos and all you need to access one of these portals is a reliable computer (Windows or Mac operating systems) and a stable internet connection. To play in the real cash mode, you will need to register an account with the casino and you must 18 years old or above before you can place a real cash wager.
Some online casinos are downloadable and others are non-downloadable, but the majority today tend to give players both options. Adding funds into your casino account or withdrawing your winnings is a relatively straightforward task and players today can use a number of different secure online casino banking methods such as credit & debit cards, e-wallets and bank transfers. Various prepaid cards can also now be used to top up your account.

Maybe. There is a new game in town (pun intended) and it could turn out to radically alter your online gaming experience. No, its not a new online casino, its not a new online slot machine game or any thing like that at all. Instead, the new kid on the block is an entirely new way to get into your online casino.
Take a step back for a minute and think about your normal online casino experience. You head over to your desktop or your smartphone, you pull up the site (or the app if your favorite online casino has an app for you to use) then comes the dreaded part. Yeah, the whole user name and password nightmare. What was that password again? You try to login multiple times because you forgot the password and all of a sudden you find yourself locked out for too many access attempts. And all of this frustration when you are only trying to get into the online casino.
Uggh, at this point, many people give up in frustration rather than calling the 800 number and requesting a password reset. Face it, many many people forget their user names and passwords. And as you may have experienced yourself first hand, just as many people forget their password hints too.
But what if there was a better way to get into your favorite online casino without having to remember a login name and password? Well, there is now a new company with cutting edge ...

Perhaps so. Check out the latest news in the online gambling world. Coming to us from Bulgaria in fact, this news is another clear illustration of how online gambling operators are rushing in to take advantage of new legal online casino regulations.
You know the name PokerStars of course. If you are already an online gambling fan or you simply follow the course of events with online casinos you will find PokerStars all over the place. Back in 2012, Pokerstars is estimated to have 50 million registered players making it the largest online poker platform worldwide. For the record, PokerStars already holds active licenses in France, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Estonia, Belgium as well as Germany.
You also know that the number of locations that are looking to offer or expand their legalized online gambling and regulated online casinos has been steadily increasing. So it will be no surprise to learn that Pokerstars just landed another big win.
In a recent press release, it was revealed that PokerStars is set to make their debut in Bulgaria. The Gambling Commission of Bulgaria only just recently approved a new license application from PokerStars. Representatives from PokerStars indicate that they intend to go live in a few short weeks as soon as a few final technical requirements are satisfied.
Why Bulgaria and why now? Understand that Bulgaria is home to a very large number of poker fans. Not only that, but some Bulgarian poker players like Dimitar Danchev made world headlines when he won ...

Of course you have heard the news about how the push for and the pushback against online gambling within the United States is getting increasingly adversarial. On the one hand you have the proponents proudly pointing to the success stories like the state of New Jersey, Delaware and Las Vegas online gambling operatons. At the same time, you have opponents standing up on their bully pulpits and loudly denouncing online gambling proclaiming that its the beginning of the end for civilized society and other such rhetoric.
Actually, the opposition to legalization of online gambling in the United States has become so contentious that there is an online video making its way around the Internet attempting to persuade those that are undecided to write their U.S. Congress and urge them to squash any legislation that makes it way to them to legalize online gambling. In one such film, the implicit message is that there are online Poker sites with real ties to Al-Queda and that further legalization will only allow them to fund another 9-11.
Except that turns out to be, shall we say, a stretch of the imagination. A little digging around turns up the truth that the real owner of the company behind this video turns out to be the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling. Although the name by itself sounds innocent enough, the truth is that this organization was setup by none other than the most vocal opponent in the U.S. against online gambling.
Yes, none ...

Is there something better than Free? Yes there is, if like a lucky player from the Netherlands, you are lucky enough to turn free into a million dollar jackpot.
You know the name Microgaming if you been around the online casino world for any length of time. Microgaming is a leading online gambling software provider. To date, they have released more than 600 online casino games. Lately, Microgaming has been focused on producing more online casino games for mobile devices.
Here is where this tale gets really interesting. As part of its new push into the mobile casino marketplace, Microgaming has offered various promotions or bonus plans to entice online casino players to give their mobile online casinos a try. One of these promotions turned out to be a $50.00 birthday voucher that ended up in the hands of an online casino player who goes by the moniker A.F.
The interesting thing about A.F is that he regularly plays his favorite online casino games at his desktop computer. Up until recently, A.F. had never really considered trying out a mobile online casino. The Free $50.00 voucher from Micrograming turned out to be just the ticket for him.
Why not? A.F. said to himself. At the time, one of his favorite games, Major Millions, had a jackpot at just over a million dollars. He was quoted as saying that he was using free money so he had nothing to lose. But apparently he had everything ...
