Casino and Gambling license
This might be the most important factor to whether you should trust the site with your money or not. You should always investigate if the online casino holds a genuine license. All the trustworthy online casinos will hold a license from an official authority. The more renowned the authority is the better. Well renowned organizations that issue licenses are such as Kahawake Gaming Commission (Canada), Gibraltar’s Gambling Act and Malta’s Lotteries Gaming Authority. Please observe that licenses issued from Gibraltar or Malta means tax-free winnings for players from within the EU, through a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Communities. If the casino is licensed the information is usually found in the casino’s FAQ, in the section “About us”, or in the Terms and Conditions. You rarely have to try hard to find this information, since it is commonly stated at the bottom of the online casino’s home page.
Who is the owner of the casino? Again, the more renowned and respected the owner of the site is, the better and safer it is for you as a player. Check to see if there are phone numbers, emails or any other form of contact information to the owner. What other sites does the owner operate? Are they well respected?
