You don’t need to even leave the house these days to get the casino experience. While the glitz and glamour of Vegas and Macau may seem appealing, for a lot of people, travelling to these places on a regular basis just isn’t feasible.

My skills and perseverance have allowed me to be a casino gambler in some of the most beautiful places around the world. There’s no better feeling than walking into a casino wearing your finest suit and heading straight to the high stakes table.

Until you have the skills to make that happen, online gambling is the best option to hone your skills and build up an income from responsible gambling.

Thanks to the internet and the popularity of online betting and gambling, there are now so many options for the at-home gambler. Whatever your game of choice or skill level, there’s always great sites to sign up for to enjoy the pleasures of gambling.

Deposit Bonus Incentives

Choosing the right site is the first challenge to overcome when beginning your online betting career. The sites that lure you in with generous deposit bonuses may not always be the best sites to use – there’s often a reason they have to rely on offers to get people to sign up. However, having said that, some of these are great sites and offer genuinely good odds and an agreeable user interface.

Betway is a staple favourite of online gamblers, offering casino games, sports betting and live poker games. They are generally reliable and have a solid reputation and accreditation, so are trustworthy. As for the sign-up bonus, it varies but can offer 100% on your initial deposit up to $1200.

Magic Red Casino only offers casino games, such as electronic slot machines and small bet games. These don’t build up money quickly but time and dedication can provide an okay return over several weeks or months – you just have to stick with it. As the bets are small, they only offer a 100% bonus on a deposit up to £200, but that £200 can go a long way at Magic Red Casino.

Genting Casino offers casino games and sports betting, but not poker. The sports betting requires some level of knowledge and skill so do your research if you’re looking for a sports betting career. Plus, they offer 100% sign up bonus up to £1000.

Poker Sites

Poker sites are little different to rank for the ‘best’, as there are so many factors that come into play. PokerStars is undeniably one of the best options, thanks to its high traffic, game variation and efficient banking.

Other things to look for if you’re a recreational player include the option for anonymity, beginner friendly sections. For the more advanced player, look for a player tagging option, or the choice to play more than one table at once.

Sports Betting

For sports betting, the odds fluctuate with every game, every minute, so it’s hard to pinpoint the exact best odds. Betfair often gives good odds consistently, so is worth a look into if there is a big game or match coming up. BetStars also gives great odds across a range of sports, from horse racing to football, tennis and baseball.

Like I mentioned, for sports betting, make sure you know the sport well and do proper research into the statistics and added information for the bet you are about to make. Knowing your stuff can be the difference between winning and losing.

Remember to start slow when you’re beginning to gamble online and try out a few different reputable sites. Getting a feel for the atmosphere on betting sites, especially if playing multiplayer games such as poker, is essential for finding the site that you’re going to be spending most of your time on.

Once you’ve got the lay of the land and have found the site that you feel most comfortable with, then you can start really honing your skills, placing bigger bets and starting to make real money from gambling.
