We also report on a daily basis what is going on in the world of online casino entertainment and other online gaming. We publish pieces about all manner of things which we think might be of interest to the Irish gambling public including such items as new online casino games, top sporting events, financial news, legislation and responsible and safe gambling. Log in every day at online casino and see what is going on and join us with comments and reactions. In recent years it seems that a new online casino opens every day, there are certainly more than is healthy at the moment so how do you know where to go to have fun and remain safe? That is where we come in by doing our best to keep you in touch. Before a new online casino goes live they seek contact with websites who are willing to promote them and go into partnership with them. Those websites are called affiliates, a term you will often come across in the travel world. It is similar to an agency arrangement but a bit more exclusive.
Those of us who were introduced to casino games at a real casino were often faced with what would now be described as a limited choice of casino games to play. Most casinos only offered roulette, blackjack and a few slot machines because they were simply not big enough to find space for anything else. Nowadays of course we have access to the online casinos, which have no such space limitations and therefore offer a huge range of casino games for us to enjoy, but the popularity of these two traditional casino games remains high even in the face of so many alternative games. One reason for this enduring popularity is that both of these casino games are easy to play, another may be that they are also recognised as two of the casino games which offer the best odds of winning. As far as we know there is no established method of improving your chances of winning at roulette, in spite of several claims over the years, but the chances of winning at blackjack can be improved with a little thought. The first thing to remember when playing blackjack is that the objective is simply to beat the dealer’s hand, and it is often not necessary to hold 20 or 21 to achieve this objective. The blackjack player has one important advantage over the dealer, and that is the requirement that the dealer must draw a card on 16 which statistically means that there is a 60% chance that the dealer will bust on 16. The statistical odds of a particular card or cards being dealt in blackjack are very important for the successful blackjack gambler, and well worth knowing particularly if you or the dealer are holding a hand between 12 and 16 which for most people are the hands which require most thought.

In common with almost all internet business sites, the online casinos are dependent on the quality of the internet software for their success or failure. Most online casinos do not design their own casino software and rely on specialist online casino software companies to design the systems to manage the site financially and more importantly for customers of the site, its content. The choice of which online casinos we regularly visit is almost always down to the range of casino games they offer and the layout and graphics we find on our preferred sites, which is why the casino software design companies play such an important role in the online casino business. This importance has certainly been highlighted recently by the continuing success of Playtech, which is now the dominant online casino software supplier in the sector. Having co-operated with William Hill over a number of years to create their extremely successful online gambling operations, Playtech have now been given the task of helping Ladbrokes catch up with their rivals in the online casino market. Playtech also provide the casino software for the Betfred and Bet365 online gambling sites and whilst we appreciate that their software is excellent and offers a good range of casino games, and good financial security, there is a tendency for many of these online casino sites to look and feel very similar if not identical. This is particularly true of the slots, which usually constitute the biggest part of the online casino games we find on our online casinos and rely on the casino software designers for their variety.

There are two kinds of websites in existence; those that promote absolutely any online free casino that asks and those that take online gaming seriously and have a number of criteria which an online casino must fulfil before any partnership can be formed. Our site belongs in the second category. We have a number of criteria that will determine whether a casino will be part of our homepage or not. The financial aspect of which is a very minor role. If you link through us to a casino online ie we derive an income (paid by the casino, not by you) which allows us to keep our site up to date with the latest news , actions and tips and we can also get involved in any conflict with the casino that you are unable to resolve. This last item is luckily very infrequent but that is partly due to the parameters that we set before we do business with a live casino online.
We are in regular contact with our partners about their offerings; for example is there a free casino option where players can try out free casino games and familiarize themselves with the game rules. Nearly every casino online offers free casino play but some take it more seriously than others. The free casino play should emulate the real play as closely as possible and the free casino games should only offer the same chance of winning as in real play. We look at how easy it is to deposit cash and more importantly how easy it is to get your winnings out and how long it takes. If it is more than 48 hours we are unlikely to do business. We look at the total offering of casino games as well as the graphics but also how well the casino games are explained and whether there is a teaching page. We look for an option of flash or instant casinos where there is no download required which some prefer. All in all we try to give you the best experience possible and you can help us by clicking through and registering with your favourite casino online.
