When signing up at an online casino, players are required to agree with the terms and conditions. However, few people actually read the T&C page, even though it’s necessary.
If you struggle with reading the casino terms and conditions, read on to learn what to focus on and speed up the process!
List of Restricted Countries
Firstly, you must learn if the casino is available in your country of residence. Online casinos typically display this info under the Who Can Play/Restricted Countries subsection of the T&C. Go through it to learn if you can play at the venue before starting the sign-up process. You should do the same with the currencies.
The casino may operate in your country of residence, but it doesn’t mean you can access all the games. Most casinos have game restrictions related to the software provider’s operating policies.
The casino terms and conditions section should contain a part that says “Game Restrictions” or something to that effect. Check it to learn if some titles are unavailable for the residents of your country. This is especially important if you’re registering at a casino to play a specific casino game.
Speaking of games, find the terms for what happens if there’s a technical failure (e.g., loss of connection). It shouldn’t happen on a regular basis at all, but you should know what’s supposed to happen in this situation.
The casino terms and conditions page has subsections dedicated to deposits and withdrawals. Checking them is crucial. Namely, they offer information about the maximum and minimum deposit and withdrawal limits, processing time, and possible fees. Check the maximum cashout limit, as it may be lower than what suits you. Beyond that, watch out for less-discussed rules like having to play through a deposit three times before withdrawal.
Also, find out if all these restrictions are within the norm. For example, stingy cashout and deposit limits may be a red flag to look out for (e.g., max withdrawals of less than C$10,000 per month).
Sometimes, the bonus policy is placed under the casino terms and conditions section. In other cases, there’s an individual page dedicated to the bonus policy. Either way, you should go through this page or the subsection.
Learn about the wagering requirements (40x or less is fine), the games’ contribution toward it, time frames, maximum bet size limits, minimum deposit requirements, and so on. The unfair bonus rules may be a warning sign.
In many cases, the licensing details are displayed at the top of the casino terms and conditions page. If they are not there, you can probably find them at the bottom of the homepage.
However, if you can’t find them anywhere on the site, it’s possible that the casino operates without a valid license (in other words, it may be a rogue casino). Therefore, it’s illegal and unsafe, and you should find a better venue to play at.
