I beg to differ here. I can say the same about double house edge silly American roulette. That is what most ignorant gamblers choose to play.

Unfortunately, some of us don't have a choice.

00 wheel only? Nope, not much of a choice.

RNG only? You do have a choice, an easy choice....dont play.

Ken, a while ago you started a thread saying that anyone who plays online because they don't live near a casino is a "silly argument". Your solution was "don't play at all".

Why isn't it also a "silly argument" to say "don't play at all" when your only choice is a 00 wheel? A 5.3% house edge is brutal. I certainly wouldn't play roulette if that was my only choice.

The Greek casinos charge you just for entering to gamble 6 Euros, as an additional "benefit" they charge you everything you want to drink.

You can get only 1 beverage for free by paying the entrance fee, the prices for beverages are low but the quality is very low too, go figure!

It takes me at least half hour (by car) and 1 hour by casino's bus to reach my nearest casino, by the way, the casino's bus schedule is very limited  (1 time per day) but it's free.
The minimum at the tables is 2.5 Euros and 1 Euro on the air balls which I don't even pass by them.

Despite all these inconveniences, I prefer to play only at brick and mortar casinos, Greek casinos are far from the best but that's what I have available around here.

My first criteria is if the online casino accepts bitcoin. I play entirely with bitcoin. A few years ago I tried some other online casinos and it was difficult to deposit money and sometimes even more difficult to extract money.

Anyways, bitcoin deposits are super easy if I want to do live dealer and if I just want to do free play they usually have that option too.

Same here...

I started at bitzino and never really tried another. I like the simple no-frills layout and the fast play. I've never had even a hint of a problem with withdrawing money.

Fortunately, I have friends who play online, and most of them started a long time ago. So, in most cases, I ask them.

I find word of mouth referrals to be a great resource in choosing online casinos as well.  If we know people that consistently win and withdrawal at a certain casino, its like its in the back of our mind when the (variance) hits the fan! :D

This is from last year, just saw it (lol).

I'm starting a thread regarding my thoughts on this. Glad you brought it up Bayes, thx.

Mr J - if there is a unknown Casino where other members experience or reviews missing.

1. Deposit the minimum and play a break even bet just to place some bets (testing)
2. Take out the money you deposit and send them your id card and electrical bill for validation
3. Think about some average question about there casino and test how support reply - good or bad response

If there is no issue with does three points you can deposit more money  and play for real.

NOTE Tomasleor at this forum mention using a video capture software during each session - i do the same ...
This way if there is a problem with anything you can prove your point and your will get your money back - for example if the video feed stop working or lagging or some bets vanish or something else happen.

Cheers
