If you are looking to gamble online, you can not just go choose a casino willy nilly. There are things you need to consider - many, many, things.
First let me state this loud and clear, online casinos are not the same.
In my time I have tried many (and I mean many) gambling websites, and some of them have burned a hole right through my pocket.
Other online casinos have been much more generous, granting me some pretty big winning streaks and a nice payout.
So how do you begin to separate a good online casino from a bad one?
Well the most obvious method (and also most expensive) is through trial and error. This is the way I learned, and believe me, it's not too fun. On the other hand, if you are looking to quit a blackjack addiction, this might be the route for you.
A cheaper method would be finding out as much information as you can before getting into online gambling. Google is your friend here, and you will be surprised just how much information you can find through forums, blogs, and other websites floating around on the net. I have seen many charts that give the payout percentage of various web based casinos. While I do not know exactly how accurate this information is, it is based on years of statistics.
If you are unlucky enough to have chosen a shady online casino you might notice that you are losing a lot more than statistics say you should be. The losses have to be consistent and over a period of time. As a personal example, I once joined an online casino where I would consistently lose at least 10 hands or more in blackjack. So if you notice frequent, uncanny losing streaks, unregister from that casino immediately and join another.
On my blog you can find all sorts of information on reputable online casinos, as well as articles on blackjack and card counting.
Take care, and remember, choose carefully.
