I have been a huge fan of online casinos for some time now and genuinely love spending a couple of hours on an evening playing slots or a bit of online poker. The main thing that excites me about online casinos is the huge jackpots that are on offer on some of the games. Some games can have jackpots that are worth millions and these can be won at any time, any spin, any punt. The thrill of potentially changing your life for the better any second is what really drives me to keep playing. That being said, I am also a massive fan of some of the more simple games and love testing my wits against other players in blackjack or poker.
There is obviously a risk to playing online casinos that they could consume your life and you may become addicted. This is why it is important to set yourself a budget and stick to it. Quite a lot of online casinos will allow you to set a budget that you cannot exceed and this is a great safety feature as it should, assuming you have worked out your budget correctly, mean you cannot get into debt playing online casinos and will continue to enjoy the experience for years to come.
I have had some good wins playing online casino games but I’ve also had some significant losses, so it’s good to keep a track of the amount you deposit and withdraw so that things don’t spiral out of control. One way I like to do it is with a spreadsheet, which is great because it shows you quickly how much you have won and how much I can get away with spending on shoes this month!
I love online casinos and hope that after reading this you will too, but you have to be cautious with them. If you think you might have a problem or could be the kind of person that might get addicted, it would be a good idea to talk to the Gambling Commission who will be able to put you in touch with the right people who can talk to you about gambling addiction, and offer help and advice on how you can sort it out.
