Online casino, also known as virtual casino or Internet casino, is an online version of a traditional casino.
Online casinos enable gamblers to play and wager on casino games through the Internet.
Online casinos generally offer odds and payback percentages that are a bit higher than land-based casinos.
Some online casinos claim higher payback percentages for slot machine games, and some publish payout percentage audits on their websites.
The payout percentage for the games are established by the rules of the game.
Many online casinos rent or buy their software from companies like Netent, Microgaming, Quickspin, Yggdrasil, Play’n Go and a couple of other suppliers.
Many online casinos offer sign-up bonuses to new players making their first deposit, and sometimes on subsequent play as well.
These bonuses are used by casinos to find a competitive edge and have become a means to market their product with an “offer”.
Most bonuses require a return of commitment from the player to wager a certain minimum amount before a withdrawal is accepted after claiming a bonus.
The wagering ensure that a player cannot just walk away with the casino’s money immediately after claiming the bonus.
These conditions are always found in the bonus terms and conditions.
Often referred to as a welcome bonus, the first deposit bonus is a deposit bonus awarded when a player first registers their account and do a first deposit to become active players.
