Online Gambling Etiquette
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Online gaming and gambling are on a constant rise. The internet made online casino gambling available to anyone. Which was very positive to many players how now can enjoy their favorite games without having to make an expensive trip to the casino.

But just like traditional, brick-and-mortar casinos, the online casinos have their dos and don’ts. And before you enter one, it’s important to understand the etiquette, and prevent yourself form looking foolish or worse, like a total amateur. Read on and learn how to behave in an online casino. We’ll have you looking like a pro before your first log in.

Rule 1: Know the Law of the Land

Since you can play online from any place in the world, before you log in to your favorite casino, check to see if online gambling is legal in the country, state, province or region where you are residing at the moment. Consult our legality page. So you won’t end up losing more than just your hand at poker.

Rule 2: Play to Win but Expect to Lose

“House always wins” is something we hear all the time, and there’s a reason for that. Gambling online affords players the luxury to take their time to master the games and learn their strategies. Use this to your advantage. Take time to master the games and play to win. But no matter what lucky charm you have on or how smart and strategic your moves are, expect to lose sometimes. Expecting to win all the time will only lead to frustration and no one needs that.

Rule 3: Play According to the Best Rules

Almost all online casinos offer the same games. But they may have different variations and not have the same rules. Make Google your friend and search for the rules which suit your preferences. Study the rules or print them out for future reference. That way, you set yourself for success.

Rule 4: Learn to Assess and Trust the Odds

Most casino games are games of chance, that’s true. But some or not. Mathematical statistics are proven, and all casino games are designed on percentages and probabilities for a reason. Don’t rely on luck alone cos there’s more to it. Constant winners aren’t only “lucky” – they have a better understanding of the odds. Learn to calculate the odds – don’t hate them!

Rule 5: Always have a Timely Play

Yes, it is expected to take a moment to consider your next move. However, you should make your next move in a timely manner. If you need to do something away from your computers or smartphone, it might be better to use the “sit out next hand” button. The other players will be thankful you did that.

Rule 6: Don’t Bet More than You Can Afford

Gambling is meant to be fun. Winning some money plays a big role here, but to win, you must bet first. And the party mood goes away quickly when you spend your rent or grocery money away. Create a gaming budget and stick to a limit that you can realistically afford.

Rule 7: Don’t Bet on “Setting Systems”

If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Stick to the rules and use proven mathematical strategies to plan your next move. Don’t rely on someone’s unsolicited advice or betting system they made out cos it is a surefire way to fill somebody else’s pockets.

Rule 8: Be Polite to All Players

Even though there are casino games where you play against a computer, keep in mind that online casinos are a real community, and most of the time you are playing against real people. Be cultured and polite, even if your playing style is aggressive.

Rule 9: Don’t Do or Permit any “Flaming”

One of the worst things you can do is take out your anger or frustration on other players. Or allow and instigate someone else to act angrily. Instead, calm down, and take sit the next hand out. If angry and insulting comments are directed to you, try to respond calmly and avoid getting into a ‘fight’.

Remember that even though you are playing online, it’s still an establishment where you are expected to follow certain rules and behave. Use our short guide to online gambling etiquette to learn the basic dos and don’ts, so you won’t end up being the annoying player that no one wants to play against.

Gala Bingo Launches “Bingo Like a Boss” Campaign
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Gala Bingo has launched “Bingo Like a Boss” campaign, unveiling a new leading lady, Gloria, a gloriously sassy woman who slays life whilst casually playing bingo.

The first of four ads connected to the campaign stars Paisley Billings from the TV show, Tattoo Fixers, as Gloria and features the character playing Gala Bingo on her phone whilst simultaneously shredding an electric guitar solo using her feet! Inspired by Gala Bingo’s seamless and exciting gameplay, this advert and the remaining three will encourage viewers to “bingo like a boss” whilst outrageously living life to the full.

With the aim of disrupting the category and inviting a new younger audience to experience the online game, the introduction of Gloria adds a fresh, modern edge to the brand, whilst maintaining relevance with its existing players. This is just one facet of Gala Bingo’s rebrand which includes an updated logo and tone of voice, a cleaner, refreshed look and colour palette, and a new approach to digital.

The commercials and digital content were directed by Los Angeles based comedy director duo Fatal Farm, while the campaign is being overseen by the advertising agency, Antidote.

“We wanted to mix up the category and refresh our brand. We are a brand with significant heritage and branding that has stood us in good stead, however the time felt right to revamp and refresh, bringing us in to the roaring 20’s and with Gloria’s help, this truly integrated campaign certainly does that. We want to show a younger audience how fun and exhilarating the game can be, showing there is something for everyone. We’re really excited to unleash Gloria on the nation and bring the sass to bingo!” Karina Adrian, Head of Brand Marketing at Gala Bingo, said.
