Securing Your Information and Money While Gambling Online

 

Online gambling is a buzzing option that keeps growing in popularity and value yearly. However, while it has made gambling easy, it also put you at risk of cybercriminals. The internet is not the safest of places and you need to take precautions to avoid criminals from stealing valuable information and money from you.

Online casinos that accept PayPal in Canada are generally secure as PayPal has a tough security system that keeps hackers out and prevents the stealing of your information. It is one of the most secure deposit methods in Canada for processing online gambling payments.

Is My Money and Information Safe on Online Gambling Sites?

Many people fear that their money is not safe with online gambling sites. Their fears are tangible but not reality. Top online gambling sites realize that they have their reputation at stake and invest lots of money to ensure their site is protected and safe for users.

With how competitive and large the market is, these sites know that they have a lot at stake not to take their site security seriously. A single mistake leading to cybercriminals stealing information and money from players on the site is a disaster so powerful no amount of PR can repair.

Tips for Securing Your Information and Money on Online Gambling Sites

It is not just enough for you to let the gambling sites do all the security work, there are aspects they cannot help you address such as negligence by forgetting to log out on your account on a public computer or allowing others to view your login details.

1. Find Out Who Regulates the Site.

The first place to look for possible security flaws when choosing an online casino is to find out if it is licensed or not. If it is not licensed, there is a high chance that the site may be built to steal your details and money. However, if it is licensed, find out which body regulates its activities.

Ideally, online gambling sites get regulated in places where their activities are legal such as Malta, the Isle of Man, and the Mohawk Territory in Kahnawake, Canada.

Normally, the name of the regulatory body is displayed on their About Page or at the bottom of the site. Any site that fails to spell this out is either operating illegally or a security threat. Either way, you want to avoid unlicensed sites with no regulatory body.

2. Use Only Sites That Have Secure Socket Layer Encryption

Top online gambling sites use a security system called Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your information and money from online criminals. The SSL certificate is commonly deployed not only by online gambling sites but other websites and platforms to secure users’ information.

The role of the SSL is to create an encrypted link that connects a website and browser. Bans and other financial institutions make use of this same security technology to keep your information protected and money safe. If you can trust your bank with your money, you can also trust online gambling sites that use SSL encryption with your information and money.

How do you know if an online gambling website uses SSL encryption? This is simple. Go to the address bar where you type in the URL once you open the sire, If the address bar shows https://, it has SSL encryption but if it says http://, there is no SSL encryption.

It is advisable not to use sites that do not have SSL encryption as they are more vulnerable to hackers.

3. Check for Seals of Approval

Seals of Approvals are symbols that show that the site has gone through and passed different standard tests and inspections. You can find these seals at the bottom of the site homepage. Some examples of the seals you may see include Verisign and eCOGRA. Also, the regulatory body supervising the online gambling site logo will be on display there.

If these seals of approval are missing, it is a strong warning sign to avoid it.

4. Google The Online Gambling Site

This is probably the quickest way to ascertain if an online gambling site is safe or not. What you want to look out for is news about the site (whether it has been in the news for good or bad). Also, you can look up reviews from authoritative sites like CasinoBernie to find out how others perceive it.

It is a bad idea to just use any review you find on Google to make your judgments. These online gambling sites pay writers to write favorable reviews.

Conclusion

If the online gambling site can tick all four of the above checklists, you have a safe site. Security is one off-gaming aspect that all players should take seriously.

Casino Guru Releases New Tool to Help Players Find Best Casinos

Casino Guru Releases New Tool to Help Players Find Best Casinos

 

Casino Guru, a global source of information about online casinos and the biggest database of casino websites, is always looking to bring more value to its visitors. The brand-new Casino Selection Helper is a tool that aims to do just that by bringing a new way for players to pinpoint the best online casino based on their specific preferences.

The new tool works by asking players to answer three simple questions about their preferences related to casino bonuses, casino games, and age of the casino they would like to play at – choosing between new sites with modern features and established brands that have been around for quite some time. After answering these questions, they are presented with the best option for them, as well as two runners-up.

Maros Gasparik, Casino Guru’s Head of Content, commented on the new functionality: “Our database contains pretty much all available online casinos, which is a great feat, but it also presents a potential obstacle for some players because of choice overload. With hundreds or even thousands of casinos available to players from certain countries, it can be a haunting task for players to select the best one for them. We are always looking to make this process easier and guide players to the best option quickly and easily, and the new Casino Selection Helper is one of the things we hope can help them choose well and stay away from unscrupulous sites.”

Gasparik also added about the future of the new tool: “In the first stage of the project, we decided to include only three relatively simple questions based on visitor insights, which should be sufficient for most players. There are plans for further improvements of the selection process and additional questions to help players with more specific preferences; however, first we want to see how our visitors like the initial version.”

Apart from fine-tuning the new tool, Casino Guru plans to continue implementing further improvements aimed at optimizing their website, providing more value to its visitors, and helping create a safer and fairer gambling environment. This includes improving their global database of problem gambling help organizations, pioneering the world of responsible gambling tools via their Global Self-Exclusion Initiative, improving the processes in their Complaint Resolution Center so that they can help more mistreated players, and more.

SLOTS TEMPLE GETS LICENSED IN UK, FREE SLOTS SITE NOW OFFERING CASH PRIZES

SLOTS TEMPLE GETS LICENSED IN UK, FREE SLOTS SITE NOW OFFERING CASH PRIZES

 

Slots Temple is first affiliate to win UKGC licensing, allowing it to offer real-money prizes for slots tournaments

Free online slots platform Slots Temple has become the first affiliate site to be awarded a UK Gambling Commission licence. That’s good news for slots fans. It means the company can now legally give out cash prizes for winners of its free-to-play tournaments.

Slots Temple offers free casino games and tournaments to players over the age of 18, where they can compete against others to get to the top of the leaderboard and win prizes.
The platform hosts more than 10,000 slots from some of the world’s best casino games studios, including Push Gaming, Relax Gaming ReelPlay and 4ThePlayer. The difference is, Slots Temple does not take any stake money. All its slots are completely free to play, no catch.

Instead, the company generates affiliate revenues when players sign up to real-money online casinos by clicking through banner advertising, although there is no obligation to do so.
Until now, Slots Temple has been unable to offer real-money prizes, just merchandise. But now, players can play their favourite slots while competing to win cash prizes of up to £5,000.
As well as cash prizes, Slots Temple will be launching a range of new tournament formats. These include Turbo Tournaments, which run for a short time only, and Risk Tournaments, where players are given a fixed balance and can adjust their bet size on each spin.

Currently, tournaments run daily, as well as weekly and monthly, so there’s plenty of opportunity to win those points and work your way up the leaderboard.

Fraser Linkleter, Director at Slots Temple said: “It’s always great to achieve an industry first, and we’re proud to be the first affiliate site to receive UKGC licensing. Licensees are held to high regulatory standards, and we believe this demonstrates our long-held commitment to social responsibility. But above all, the licence adds excitement and value for our users, who get to compete for cash while paying nothing up front. And what’s not to like about that?”
