Finding and Choosing the Right Online Casino

Are you an experienced casino player looking to try something different? Or are you an enthusiast who doesn’t have a land-based casino nearby but is eager to enter the exciting world of gambling? Whatever the case, the answer is simple – online casinos.

Virtual gambling has grown in popularity (and continues to do so), and we’re yet to see what shape it will take in the future. But one thing is for sure, more and more gambling sites will appear, and it is critical to know how to find and choose the right online casino.

Check the Licenses and How Secure an Online Casino Is

The online gambling space is becoming bigger by the second, and generally speaking, players don’t have trouble finding an online casino to join. However, it is critical to be cautious and not go for the first casino that popped up in your search results. Remember, the digital space is packed with scam sites, and you don’t want to register with an unreliable one.

Where to Look for Licenses? 

When you visit a particular gambling site, the first thing to look for is its licenses and the corresponding authority that issued it. Reputable online casinos make this information easily accessible; they are usually at the bottom of the site’s home page. In case you can’t find it, consider looking for alternatives, and save yourself any unnecessary hassles down the line.

Is an Online Casino Secure?

Another critical thing is security. Playing online casinos requires creating an account containing sensitive information, including credit card numbers. Therefore, you want to know if the casino you opt for takes the necessary security measures to protect members’ personal data.

The best way to confirm whether an online casino is safe is to look for a lock icon before the site’s URL. This means the site uses SSL encryption. But, keep in mind that even sites that claim to be using SSL encryption, but don’t have a lock sign, are also unsafe and are probably a scam.

Examine the Game Offer

The next thing to determine before saying yes to an online casino is to see the games on offer. As we’ve already covered, a secure and licensed casino is always a yes. But if it doesn’t have your favourite casino game/s, there’s no reason for you to stay.

However, one thing differentiating online casinos from their land-based counterparts is the possibility of trying various games for free.

Even if a casino doesn’t have a game you planned to play, check whether they provide demo versions of their games. Maybe you’ll find something new you didn’t think you were interested in. That is especially useful if you are new to the online gambling space.

Poker or roulette in traditional casinos comes with a different vibe than in virtual establishments. But truth be told, online casinos put a lot of effort into providing almost the same experience players have in land-based casinos.

Familiarize Yourself With Deposit and Withdrawal Options

The online gambling space is pretty competitive, and companies know they must provide an exceptional experience for players to differentiate themselves from competitors. Aside from a rich game selection, most players are also interested in deposit-related terms and conditions and withdrawals.

The practice shows that players opt for casinos that allow them to make a deposit using traditional methods, such as debit or credit cards. Punters, however, also want to know the most effective way to cash out their winnings.

Therefore, if online casinos process different payout methods, the greater the chances of their customer base growing.

The most popular payout methods include:

  • Credit cards
  • e-wallet services: Paypal, Skrill, and Neteller
  • Wire transfers
  • Checks
  • Cryptocurrencies

Still, don’t stop here when researching a particular casino’s deposit and withdrawal options. See if there are fees for a specific method of payment. Also, check for any withdrawal limits, including the time you must cash out your win and the amount of money you can request to be transferred from your account to your credit/debit card.

Look for Bonuses and Promotions

When we talk about tactics that online gambling sites practice to attract new and keep regular members, we can’t skip over bonuses and promotions. These perks have proven effective in motivating newbies to join and existing players to keep coming back.

Most reputable casinos offer welcome and no-deposit bonuses to new players. However, these incentives come with a requirement to register an account but without the risk of losing your money.

In addition, gambling sites take good care of their loyal members by offering various cashback and deposit bonuses and promotions.

Therefore, once you make a shortlist of online casinos you’re keen to join, see how they stand with bonuses and promotions and learn more about the associated terms and conditions.

Those are some of the key ingredients you should be aware of when choosing your online casino. Be mindful of the pretenders and stick to those operators that have all the proper accreditation and certifications clearly displayed.

Best Games to Come In 2022

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

There is a common quip in the gaming and game development world that new games’ release dates are more of suggestions than a sure thing. This is because no game ever makes its initial release date. But gamers have come to terms with delays and understand that it’s part of the game development process. However, this does not keep us from getting excited about the new titles slated to be released later this year.

This piece will look at the best games you should expect before the year ends. So if you’re ready to possibly get your hopes up for no reason, keep reading to learn more.

1. God of War

God of war is a quirky game set in a world inspired by the Norse mythology and was initially released in 2005. The game has gone through a few iterations over the years, which has only improved its gameplay. The current title does an excellent job at developing its characters and establishing their backstories, pulling you into the game and engaging you even more.

In addition, the musical score does an even better job at accentuating important moments in the game. That’s why we are so excited about the new revamp slated for later on this year. We are sure the stories and music will only get better, and we don’t even need to mention the gameplay. Sony always kills it.

2. Call of Duty

When duty calls, you have to answer. This is one that never disappoints. Its action sequences are as engaging as ever, and the graphics are every graphics designer’s envy. Betway also found that playing COD helps you burn as much calories as a long walk, with a 90 minute gaming session elevating your heart rate to 90+ beats per minute and helping you burn up to 180 calories.

So you can now enjoy your gaming sessions and don’t have to worry about missing the gym. And with a new release this year, we have more than one thing to be excited about.

3. Last of Us

Another title that is excellent to play is Last of Us. It’s set in a decaying post-apocalyptic world and stars two characters—a child accompanied by an adult. However, the story is not about the dilapidated world but about these two characters and their struggle to survive this world.

This is one we hope the development gods here us and release as expected. We cross our fingers and hope it makes its release date this year.

4. A Plague’s Tale

Set in a corps-ridden world, plague-infested rats and inquisition soldiers who have it out for the two orphaned sibling protagonists. The game’s setting does an excellent job of making the main characters empathetic as you witness their struggle from a third-person perspective.

However, the gameplay is not that engaging, and the obstacles are neither challenging nor compelling. We are glad the makers are revamping this one and getting a second chance at taking another crack later this year.

5. FIFA 23

FIFA is a classic game that never disappoints. It has been a favorite for many, and FIFA 23 is expected to be the most popular iteration of the francise yet.

QTech Games bolsters its offering with CQ9 Gaming integration

Emerging-markets leader extends its premier portfolio with more top slots from an emerging Asian force in multiplayer video content

QTech Games, the number-one games distributor across all emerging markets, has announced its latest premium partnership with Asian video content and slots supplier, CQ9 Gaming.

Under the terms of the new agreement, CQ9 Gaming’s GLI-certified portfolio – comprising top-quality slots, arcade, and table casino games – has been integrated for QTech Games clients and their players, providing another cutting edge to a powerhouse platform recognised for bringing the finest online games to market across developing territories.

Popular CQ9 titles include Good Fortune, 1945, Kronos, Zeus, Lucky Fishing, and many others which harness the appeal of multiplayer fish games, arcade games, not to mention multiplayer online board and card games. This ever-evolving production line will help QTech Games strengthen its comprehensive spread of gaming verticals, central to QTech ONE™, its definitive one-stop shop for global operators.

The deal organically broadens CQ9 Gaming’s global footprint, accessing a fresh scope of growth markets for accelerated expansion. As the fastest-growing distributor over the past few years, QTech’s platform is localised for each region with native mobile apps, robust reporting and marketing tools, and 24/7 local-language support.

Ulf Norder, CCO at QTech Games, said: “We’re excited to be teaming up with CQ9 Gaming whose stunning graphics and gameplay chart near the pinnacle of the marketplace. The QTech Games platform is equipped with the best games from the world’s leading suppliers – and CQ9 now joins this branching tree.

“CQ9 Gaming may only be a young company, but they’ve already managed to build a strong fan-base in Asia and are moving on to conquer previously untapped markets in Europe and LatAm. Their titles run off an agile HTML5 gaming engine, meaning that you can access them either via desktop or mobile devices, even if the casino doesn’t currently offer a dedicated mobile app.

“Wherever you set your scene in this ever-changing landscape, our platform champions a mobile-first mantra, packed with all the best localised games that cater to varied cultural tastes. By way of instructive example, if you don’t offer the fish game in China, there’s no chance of becoming successful. And it’s a similar story with the Andar Bahar in India. CQ9 understand the demand for regional specificity throughout Asia and beyond, making them a logical and long-term ally with which to team up.”

A CQ9 spokesperson added: “This deal significantly broadens CQ9 Gaming’s international influence, opening up ‘margin’ markets from Eastern Europe and Latin America for diversified growth.

“CQ9 is one of the leading video slot suppliers in the Asian market with more than 100 titles under our belt. We’re steadily working on extending that reach and establishing ourselves in Europe and CIS-facing territories, and QTech’s broad spread of emerging-markets access means we can achieve this with dexterity while also consolidating our existing Asia-facing audience.

“Our goal has always been to design intuitive and interactive live-dealer experiences that are customised for every generation of mobile end-user. Since QTech Games is a defining distributor across Asia and other unexploited regions, we can’t wait to see how our games connect with different and diverse player profiles.

“At a time of refined localization techniques, QTech Games is really delivering on their brand promise of customising high-class content for varied cultures. This is what keeps them at the forefront of relevance for all kinds of players in the bubbling melting-pot of emerging markets.”
