How to Evaluate Real Money UK Online Casinos?

Ever since the inception of internet casino games in the final years of the last century, players around the world have been able to discover the joys of safe online casinos from the comfort of their own home, the workplace, and even on the move via mobiles and tablets.

While some countries have resisted the move from brick-and-mortar casinos to online slots and blackjack, many have welcomed the phenomenon, changing the landscape and culture of real money casino wagering forever.

Platforms

Before the advent of smartphones or tablet devices, players were still relatively fixed to how they could play online casino games – through either a desktop or laptop computer. Advances in technology mean that people can now join a Roulette table or play a handful of video poker games from their mobile phone, provided they have a Wi-Fi signal or data plan in place.

Not only does this offer freedom of movement, but also time management, as players can play in transit or while waiting for a meeting. While mobile casinos have come on leaps and bounds, desktop gaming at the same casino almost always offers a wider range of games, while access to live dealer games is normally a desktop-only affair.

Computer-Generated and Live Dealer Gaming

Games at UK casino apps come in a variety of forms, with many showcasing stunning, state-of-the-art computer-generated visuals, while at the same time trying to recreate the aesthetic of a physical casino.

For those who prefer the experience of a live dealer, online casinos usually come with a special live-dealer section, broadcast from a studio dressed as a real casino dealer pit. Here the dealer is able to see the names of the players and communicate with them. Some are even able to send and receive messages via a chat function, offering an extra level of interaction.

Online vs Offline

Some online casinos offer the ability to play offline by downloading a desktop client or mobile app. While these proved popular during the early days of iGaming, as it cut down on data transfers and the reliance on slow internet browsers, it also meant that many games were played for fun, and not for money.

Offline games can still be enjoyable and used to hone skills, but many prefer to play against other real-life players rather than a computer simulation. With higher internet speeds, more secure connections, and a wide range of internet browsers to utilise these days, playing casino is fast, fun, and, for experienced players, often profitable.

Software

This transition has bred a new industry of game designers and developers, figuring out how best to design online casino games that could be enjoyed by everyone around the world. Industry leaders such as NetEnt and Playtech have managed to build grand, epic games with Hollywood-style visual effects and soundtracks.

Another group of experts have been building frameworks so that online casinos can host these games, both for desktop and mobile use. With the rise of cross-platform coding such as HTML5, online casino architects have been able to implement the same designs over both desktop and mobile browsers, so that players can switch from one to the other seamlessly.

Support and Banking

Nearly all reputable sites utilise secure SSL connections that encrypt the data when it is sent to and from the casino, so that players' money is not at risk. Likewise, deposits back into players’ accounts are made using the same secure system, and can be transferred using many, if not all, of the methods used to pay into the casino.

Another advantage many online casinos have over their real-life counterparts is that they are able to accept various forms of currency from around the globe, as well as Bitcoins.

Paying money to (depositing) and getting it from (withdrawing) online casinos could not be easier, and in fact offers more methods than a physical casino. As well as standard VISA, MasterCard and Maestro cards, plays can opt for a direct bank transfer, or use one of the many supported eWallet or online payment systems such as Neteller, Skrill (Moneybookers), or Entropay.

Jackpots and Bonuses

Most online games, especially online video slots, come with a host of bonus games, which can pay out thousands of times the original bet. These games sometimes come in a progressive jackpot form, meaning that everyone playing the same game around the world is contributing to one jackpot, which one lucky player will eventually win.

As well as individual game rewards, most online casinos offer all-encompassing rewards and loyalty schemes. For example, many offer a joining bonus in the form of a free bet, or a deposit bonus equal to or sometimes double or even triple what a player has originally transferred.

Loyalty schemes work on a ranking system: the more time a player spends online playing, the higher up the rankings they rise. With every tier hit, there will be a higher bonus. These may take the form of a prize draw, access to an exclusive event or game, free deposits, or even cashback on money spent in the online casino.
