If there is one thing that is of utmost importance for online casinos is trustworthiness. It goes without saying that if an online casino is not trustworthy, then no one will play at that online casino. You need to be sure that the entity handling your money is not going to rob you, plain and simple. Palace of Chance holds its clients’ respect and trust in exceedingly high value, and we have taken the measures necessary to bring each player and each potential player that sense of security and trust that is first and foremost on everyone’s list of requirements. Among those measures, we would like to help all our clients understand what traits to look for in an online casino to help in the process.
Longevity: How long has it been on business
One of the first and easiest things to look for when you are looking for a trustworthy online casino is how long the casino has been around. This can most often be found at the very bottom of the page next to the copyright information. Sometimes, though, copyright dates are not that reliable.
One little tip that may help you to find how long a casino such as Palace of Chance has been in operation is to type into your favorite search engine, like Google or Yahoo for instance, the name of the casino in quote marks and the words “established in” in separate quote marks. For example, if you want to look for this info on Palace of Chance, you would type “Palace of Chance” “established in” into the search bar. You may have to do a little digging, but you can find that Palace of Chance was established in 1999, almost 16 years of quality service.
Leadership: Is it well recognized?
Usually you can find the owner of the casino on the website as well. It depends on the casino where they decide to put which company owns the casino, if the company goes by another name and owns various casinos. This info can be found at the bottom of the main page or on the About Us page. Go ahead and check it out with Palace of Chance!
Casino Licensing and Regulation
The next thing you want to look for is what entity or entities license and/or regulate the casino. When a gambling site is licensed that means it is regulated by some kind of authoritative governmental body. Most jurisdictions have a set of strict laws; others might not be so strict. Finding the licensing info tends to be a little harder; some casinos offer it up freely, but that is not always the case. If you cannot find the licensing information, you can also look at who the casino is affiliated with. CDS – Central Disputing System – and Gambling Wages are reputable affiliate companies, so if you see a certification by an entity such as CDS, that is another point towards the trustworthy online casino side.
Another thing to look for is which credit card processing companies that work with that casino. Big credit card processing companies such as Visa, Master Card, or American Express will not work with a casino with a sub-par reputation. If the casino accepts deposits by these credit cards then you can know that they have a reputable standing.
Gambling Software Certification
The next thing to look for is the certification of the software that the casino uses. This is something that should be very easy to find as it is also usually at the bottom of the webpage. Here you need to look for reputable brand names. If the software is reputable, then the site gains positive repute. Real Time Gaming, in Palace of Chance’s case, is a long-standing and solid software company, so you can rest assured that the quality of the software is excellent, making the casino more trustworthy.
When you shop for clothes or other goods at the mall, one of the things you base your choices on is how well-known the brand is and what it is known for. Big brand names tend to have a very good reputation for quality. The same holds true for online casinos, however, we all know what happens when a company gets too big for its own good. Clients become numbers and customer service becomes an automated answering machine and talking to an agent becomes impossible. For these reasons sometimes people avoid the big brand names and go for the up-and-coming companies. This is something to consider after you have done your research on the casinos that interest you.
These are the things you need to look for when you are looking for a trustworthy online casino. At Palace of Chance we can assure you that we work hard to earn our clients trust, but do not take our word for it. Do your research if you wish, and you will see that our words are not empty ones.
