Online Gambling – Careful where you put your money

cropped-CircularLogo.png

Online casinos aren’t exactly a new phenomenon anymore. In fact, online casinos have been around for over 20 years. But a surprising number of casino gamblers, especially in the United States, still haven’t tried it.

I’m convinced that some of this has to do with fear. People are afraid that an offshore casino is going to rip them off. Or they’re afraid that they’re breaking the law.

Unfortunately, some of those fears are justified.

Some online casinos are crooked, although not always in the way you might think they would be. A lot of people worry that the games rigged. This is actually not that great a concern. There’s little incentive to rig an Internet casino game because the house already has an edge.

What’s more common is for a casino to make it hard to withdraw your money. Before you can play a game for real money online, you have to “buy chips”—or “make a deposit”. That part’s usually easy.

Where players run into problems is when it’s time to withdraw—especially if they’re winners. Rogue casinos are notorious for delaying withdrawals. These properties also make it easy to take a withdrawal that’s in “pending” status and put it back into your account to play with. For people problems controlling their impulses, or just anyone who likes being action, that makes it hard to ever see your winnings.

The legality of online casinos is another issue to think about. Depending upon where you live, online casino gambling might be outright illegal. In the United States, it’s especially weird, because federal law is vague and state laws vary.

But gambling at online casinos can still be a safe and enjoyable hobby for most people. The trick is learning how to choose an online casino. The title of this post makes it sound like there’s a “perfect” online casino out there, but that’s not entirely true. You can find a site that comes close to meeting your needs. But that doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed a problem-free experience. People don’t have perfect experiences at brick and mortar casinos in Las Vegas or Atlantic City, either, but they keep gambling there.

My guess is that eventually the Internet casinos will become as trustworthy as the casinos in the major resort destinations. They’re just not quite there yet.

In the meantime, here’s a list of the best internet slots.

Justice City United 2015 Christmas Special – Crisis on Christmas

Justice City Logo

What the heroes hope to be a peaceful holiday season turns decidedly strange when someone threatens the beliefs and hopes of children across the world, by holding Santa Claus hostage! If something isn’t done, the world may be denied the hope and joy of the Christmas season!

This is a pre-generated adventure that was modified for a special Christmas session of the game, out of regular continuity, featuring the regular players (some with their new characters) Jeremy (Cerberus), Robin (Blue Streak), Beth (Persephone), Rowan (Alexandria), and Noah (Hayate).

We've changed the lineup, as you can see, and when episode 35 posts soon, you'll get the full update as to what's happened in the campaign's long downtime.
