Just as land-based casinos are the private property of the owner, online casinos are the private property of the online casino owners. As a result, you should always view yourself as a guest of the casino in addition to being a customer. While it’s clear that casinos should treat you with respect, many online gamblers forget to show that same respect back to the casino. It’s easy to forget that there’s something more than just a computer on the other side, but it’s very important to bear in mind that there are people who work to make your gambling experience as pleasant as possible. There are a few rules you should follow to show your respect and earn the respect that you expect from the casino.
Firstly, the online casino has secure servers for a reason. They expect you to provide honest information, and they work hard to make sure that your information stays safe. When they ask you for information, your part of that bargain is to give accurate and full information. This includes your full date of birth, your address, your name, and your home phone number, as well as any additional information that the casino requests. It’s important to remember, though, that this information should only be provided in the casino’s sign-up forms or in official communication with casino staff. This information should never be provided in regular chats or if someone claiming to be from the casino calls you, and cannot verify your account information for you.
A big no-no when it comes to how to behave at an online casino is bonus-hunting. Some online gamblers simply look for ways to take advantage of the casino’s bonuses without gambling regularly at the casino. If you’re not interested in playing, don’t sign up. If you sign up, make a deposit, play until you’ve freed your bonus, and then withdraw all your funds, you’ll find that you’re unwelcome in that online casino in the future. Not only that, they may blacklist you with other casinos as well.
Some online casino games allow you to chat with other players. It’s important to be courteous to the other players. Many online casinos require that all chat be in English. If your casino requires that, please adhere to that rule. Don’t talk rudely to players, and be careful not to use foul language. While you may be able to get around the casino’s automatic censors, it’s just not nice. Besides, casino employees do watch the chats in their casinos.
Many casinos don’t allow you to advertise other sites on their chat. If that is the casino’s rules, please adhere to them. First, your opponents aren’t there to find out about your new podcast; they’re there to play a game. Secondly, the casino may feel that you are trying to compete with them for business on their own website. Imagine advertising a new grocery store at a local supermarket! Of course the owners of the supermarket would be very angry. If you want to advertise your site, there are a variety of other ways to do so. Don’t do it on the online casino.
Another thing that many online gaming sites, especially poker sites, worry about is collusion. Collusion is a situation in which two players supply each other with information in order to win against the other players at the table. If you give any information about your hand in the poker game’s chat, it’s likely that you will be accused of collusion, and your account will be frozen. You will probably lose any money you have in your account, and you’ll be blacklisted from that site. Be careful not to lose your privileges!
Most importantly, in a chat, remember to be friendly and have a good time. Like you, the other players are there to have fun. Be sure you’re adding to their fun and not detracting.
