Without further ado, let's delve in: first off, who's a new player? As the name suggests, a new player is someone who has never played at an real money online casino. Whether, they've read about it online or heard from friends, the common denominator is that they've never been involved in actual online play. If you're one of such, here's a very important piece of advice: do not be in a hurry to place your money down. Online casino playing can be real exciting especially when you're winning. It can also be a sad experience when you're consistently loose, which is what will happen if you don't heed this advice. So take it slow, get to familiarize yourself with the surroundings of the casino. Your first task is to choose a suitable online casino. There are so many casinos out there online. Some are good, some others you should run from. You can now see why this is your first and most important step. Fortunately for you, we've dealt with this in previous articles on the site. Simply look around to find those articles. The next step after selecting an online casino is to become familiar with that casino and how they play. A way of doing this is to simply demo their service. Or play with fake virtual cash. Do this till you’re fully conversant with the casino's online environment.

Learn the rules

After signing up and getting access to the casino "game room", you want to make sure you understand how you interact with the casino. Your primary means of doing this is by buttons. You need to understand what these buttons are and how they work. Generally speaking in any online casino, buttons are of 2 varieties. The first are support buttons or provide support functions, the second type is used in the actual gaming itself and is used during gameplay. Examples of the first type, the support buttons would be those like the help button or the options or settings button. These buttons are pretty much the same in practically every online casino game out there. As an example of how a support button provides support, clicking the options button can allow you enable or disable certain options. I’ll advice you do this, enable and disable each option and see how that affects your gaming. For instance, you can play the game with sound enabled or not. Do this and see what works for you.

The second variety, the gaming buttons are the key things to master as you familiarize yourself with the casino platform. These type of button vary depending on the type of game and casino platform you're using. If for example, you're playing slots, you should try to look at how to change the amount of coins you're putting down, what size, the pay line numbers and you should know how changing any of these variables changes your stake. There are buttons that allow you to wager the maximum amount allowed, do this with fake demo money and see whether or not you're comfortable with playing like this.
