Now that we no longer have to travel to a land-based casino, it's easy for anyone to start playing casino games. All you need to do is find an online site, sign up and start playing. If you don't know anything about casinos, you'll be able to pick up how to play as you go. For this reason, playing online is really handy as you can choose to play in demo mode until you feel you're confident you know what you're doing before you put any real money down.

So how do you choose from the vast array of different online casinos?

It’s always a good idea to go with a name that you’ve heard of. But when it comes down to what each site is offering in terms of games, you’ll find that they’re often similar. The main difference between many sites is the size of the welcome bonus that’s on offer for new players, and this is often the deciding factor when choosing a site.

What to play

What you play will obviously depend on your likes and dislikes. If you enjoy games of absolute chance, then slots are ideal. They’re also hugely varied, with all kinds of different themes to them. Superhero slots such as Captain America: The First Avenger and Wolverine are two examples. Then there are the traditional-style fruit machine games and those that feature tie-ins with TV shows such as The X-Factor. There’s also a choice of prizes to play for – normal payouts or progressive jackpots. With any slot, the game play is visually pleasing and straightforward, so slots make a great choice for times when you want to unwind while you play.

When you want to think a little harder when you play, then a game of blackjack’s a good option. Although there’s chance in the deal of the cards you get, you can decide along the way whether to change your bets, to split a hand or to double down if you think you’re in with a good chance of beating the dealer’s hand. Table games also generally offer a better player return than slots.

And as you’re not just playing the software, there are other people in the game too.

If you can, find a site that offers new player freeroll tournaments, where you can learn the basics of playing poker in a game that’s free to enter, but has a real money pot supplied by the casino to play for. You’ll soon hone your poker strategy and be ready to move onto the pay and go games.

Of course, these are just a few of the casino games available to play online. Whatever you choose, there’s another advantage to playing at an online casino. You’ll be able to get some good experience in a range of different games, so whenever you go to a land-based casino for a night out, you’ll feel cool, relaxed and ready to win when you walk up to any of the gaming tables.
