General Gambling Information

Territory/Country
Many national and local jurisdictions control or outright ban any form of online gaming. Due to such regulation the online gaming brands may not allow residents of such countries to become members, or refuse to grant them any bonuses. Depending on whether your country of residence prohibits online gambling or the online gaming brand you want to register at provides services in your country, in some cases you may not be allowed to sign up or be eligible for the bonus offers. The territory/country listing provides you with an opportunity to check if you are eligible to register and claim the bonuses provided at your chosen venue.

License
Online gaming jurisdictions are territories whose legislation and infrastructure allows them to license and regulate online gaming operations by ensuring fair and transparent gaming, protecting the players and preventing crime and money laundering. The online gaming brand whose operations are up to the standards set by a jurisdiction can apply for and receive a license to provide its services from that jurisdiction. Among a large number of jurisdictions that currently issue remote gaming licenses some are stricter in demanding that their licensees constantly uphold the highest standard of safe, fair and responsible gaming, and thus more reputable than others. The brand’s remote gaming license can tell much about its reputability and the levels of safety, fairness, security and support it needs to reach; the license listing will help you find out which jurisdiction issued a license to a brand of your choice. But please beware – while being granted a remote gambling license from a recognized jurisdiction means that an online gaming brand adheres to certain standards, there are many other things a brand must fulfill and commit to in order to gain and keep a good reputation, and you may need to consider other factors to determine if your chosen online gaming venue is worthy of your attention and your money.

Software
When choosing an online gaming brand to play at it’s important to know which software it operates on. There is a large number of top quality online gaming software providers in the industry, some large software brands produce a range of online gaming products, and there are online gaming brands that operate on just one or a number of different software types. The software listing will help you determine which software your chosen brand operates on, as well as provide you with all relevant info about the software developer itself.

Language
You can use the language listing to check if the online gaming website you wish to play at supports the language of your choice. The main language of a large majority of international online gaming venues is English. However, there is a number of country-specific websites that provide their services in only one language, as well as a range of brands that allow their players to choose among a wide variety of languages for both the website and the gaming software. Depending on a brand and its software provider, in some cases changing the language will be possible only on the website, and if multiple languages are available for the software as well, it’s usually the download version.

Currency
If you want to test your luck, skills or knowledge betting or playing online games, aside from claiming a no deposit bonus (if available), you will have to add some funds to your account. With online banking and a large number of convenient payment methods and e-wallets making a deposit and withdrawing the winnings is as easy as it gets, especially if your chosen venue accepts payments in a currency that is the most convenient for you. Monetary transactions in “standard” currencies such as EUR, USD or GBP are supported by the large majority of online gaming websites; however, there are websites that accept payments in a wide range of currencies, but also those who insist on using just one or a limited number of currencies. Most electronic bank accounts can be used to make a deposit in whatever currency you desire, but such payments usually include exchange fees. If you want to avoid paying exchange fees or simply prefer making payments in one specific currency, you can consult the listing to see which online gaming venue suits you best.

Accreditation
When deciding whether it is worth committing to a particular online gaming brand, one of the main things to pay attention to is whether the venue of your choice is renowned for upholding the high standards of safe and fair gaming. There are several highly acclaimed independent testing agencies and player protection organizations in the online gaming industry – the following listing will help you familiarize yourself with those promoters and protectors of safe and fair play and see if the online gaming venue of your choice is certified for meeting their high standards. However, even if a brand proudly displays an accreditation seal awarded by a prominent agency or an organization, there are more things for it to commit to in order to acquire a good reputation. Many of those organizations are founded by and associated with the very same brands they issue accreditations to and if it comes to a dispute, such agencies may not be fully objective. Before you make your choice and commit to a particular online gaming venue, to be on the safe side, you may want to consider other factors that determine the brand’s reputability as well.
