Pros and Cons of Playing at New Online Casinos
What are the pros and cons of playing at new online casinos that offer access to South African players? One of the advantages is that it keeps the local online casinos competitive which makes sure they provide great welcome casino bonuses and ongoing promotions to keep players returning.
A competitive online casino market also forces them to offer the latest casino games from the best providers, top-notch casino support, exciting bonus offers and even regular slot tournaments for extra engagement. Ensuring fast payouts of winnings to players in as short a time as possible is one of the key factors to keep players happy and loyal.
What are the cons of playing at a new online casino? Like any new business, the chances of failure are quite high in comparison to companies who have been in the market for a while. However, if the new online casino has experienced management, and is well funded, the chances of success increase dramatically.
Pros & Cons of Online Casino Bonuses
Online casino bonuses have strict terms and conditions associated with them, and these terms will differ between the type of bonus offered as well as the casino offering them.
Some of these terms will include a playthrough requirement that needs to be met before any funds can be withdrawn. There may also be restrictions on the types of games that may be played with a specific bonus. Free sign up, or no deposit required bonuses may also have a cap on the amount of winnings a player may withdraw.
It is, therefore, highly recommended that players read the terms and conditions for every bonus they may wish to accept.
ZA No Deposit Bonuses
These welcome bonuses do exactly what the name implies. They are designed to welcome you, the prospective new player, to their online world. To do so, some online casinos offer up what is called a no deposit bonus or free spins bonus. What that means is that simply by signing up you will receive welcome bonus in your account balance that you can use to try out some of the slot games on offer. It is one of the best ways to try out an online casino without committing any real money.
These are some of the most popular bonuses you will come across in your time with online casinos. These bonuses offer you a certain percentage of an amount you deposit as a boost to your account. Say you come across a 50% deposit bonus and you deposit R100, half of your deposit amount will be added as extra so in the end you will have R150 to use. These deposit bonuses do have limits as to how much you can put in while still receiving a bonus but these are still great ways to experience what the casino has to offer.
Most online casinos offer up reward / loyalty programs for you to take advantage of. Often at times you will automatically be signed up after creating your account and sometimes you might have to manually join. Like most V.I.P. programs the more you play, spend and engage with the casino you will earn unique points which you will be able to use to climb the tiers and the ranks of the programs unlocking better and unique rewards along the way.
Keeping Safe At New Casinos
While it might be fun and exciting to try out newly launched online casinos, nothing is without risk. It’s vital that you make sure that you know what you are getting yourself into and signing yourself up for. A great way to do this, other than by checking our reviews, is to look at the customer service section of each online casino. There, you will find various ways to get into contact with the casino’s support staff. If options there are limited, lacking or simply not available to you then it is advisable to do a bit more research on the establishment.
Another thing to keep in mind when looking at new online casinos are their gaming licenses, what jurisdiction are they licensed in, if any. Gambling is a heavily regulated industry and in order to make sure guests are playing games that have fair RNG (Random Number Generation) casinos need gaming licenses to prove that everything is above board and operating to code.
One thing South African gamblers need to keep in mind when attempting to access online casinos, especially brand new online casinos, is regional availability. What this means is that sometimes certain games or even parts of the casino might not be available to players from South Africa. This could be due to licensing restrictions, server hosts, lack of support for local currency or even banking.
Of course we will only talk about casinos that are available locally but it is something to keep in mind if you decide to see what else is operating in the online gambling industry. A good thing to always keep in mind and to check out for is the availability of South African Rands when signing up.
When it comes to regional availability, one more thing to keep in mind is how many banking options are available for South African residents. Will you be able to even make a deposit or will you be stuck when it comes to withdrawing. These are important things to keep in mind when looking at new casinos.
Games can be high octane and intense or relaxed and goofy, they’re there for you to play and enjoy. Whether it’s video slot games, table games (Blackjack, online craps) or live dealer games one should always strive to have fun while playing them.
