Playing online slots offers the convenience and ease that fans of slot games at brick-and-mortar casinos had no doubt wished they had back in the day. With online slots, there’s no longer any need to go on a long trek to your nearest casino (which, in many states, is in no way near) – all it takes is a laptop, phone or tablet; a working internet connection, and a digital payment method and you can gamble till your heart’s content wherever you are. Online slots are also very basic games that don’t require high-speed internet or the latest tech, so it’s easily accessible to anyone and everyone with enough money to spend on slots in the first place.
Are online slots safe, though, or are you better off going to real-world casinos to play them the old way?
Why They’re Safe
It’s true, there are many people who flat out don’t trust any digital transaction when it comes to their money. They keep off online banking and often prefer to go into a bank even just to draw cash. If, however, you’re part of the 99% of people who are more than happy to enjoy the convenience of online shopping, online banking or online stock trading, there is no reason whatsoever for you to be afraid of being defrauded by online slot machines – accepting, of course, that by their very nature, slot machines of all sorts are designed to give the house a substantial edge over the player.
There are dangers of playing on a disreputable online slot machine or on a fraudulent online casino, but such sites are super easy to avoid. Literally just type the name of the casino and/ or machine you want to play on and the word “review” into Google and you will know whether the site in question is at all trustworthy
And, remember, if the site/ slot developer is legit then you can be all but entirely guaranteed that they will do every single thing in their power to make sure that your money and your personal information are 1000% safe. After all, it’s very much to their benefit to have customers constantly return and a few bad reviews can mean falling by the wayside in the face of all the sites out there that offer similar things.
What Features are Offered for Your Safety
Good casino sites offer several different ways to protect your information. If the site is lacking in any of these then perhaps look elsewhere – especially the first five.
- Requires a password and an email to verify your account
- Offers a 24/7 helpline for all issues you may have
- Numerous ways to contact them, including email, Whatsapp and phone
- Numerous ways to pay them, including sites like PayPal, as well as credit card options
- Encryption for credit card payments
- Regulation by various gaming regulatory bodies (optional but worthwhile)
There are some other things to look out for, of course, but if the site boasts these features, you’re pretty much good to go.
