  • Check the odds:
    Most respectable online casinos have a list of the odds of their games. These lists give you an idea of what your return is on the different games they offer, so they give you a good idea of which games you should avoid, and which games are the most lucrative.
  • Take advantage of bonuses:
    Many Online Casinos offer bonuses to attract new players. Why shouldn't you turn this to your own advantage? Some even offer up to a few hundred dollars of free-cash! Use these bonuses to increase your bets and cash-in bigger amounts but do not forget to read the fine print regarding the cashing regulations because some require an initial wager on your behalf before they offer a bonus.
  • Play for free before you play for real:
    Play a few games for free before playing for money in order to try out the games without risking real money.
  • Set yourself a cash limit:
    How? Say you have 300$ to spend and you plan on gambling for 3 weeks, only once a week. That means that your limit for each gambling session is 100$. Disregard the other money you have, put it away and forget about it. Try to enjoy the money you have in hand, and NEVER under any circumstances take from a different session's money. If you lost all your money for that day, walk away and return the next time. That's the way to be a prosperous player, and minimize your waste.
  • Gamble only with expendable money:
    Online casinos are much like regular casinos, and follow the same rules. If you want to play you must first deposit some money, you should only deposit money you know for sure you can afford to lose. That's how you make sure you are not going to gamble away your house and watch.
  • Never play and drink (alcohol) at the same time:
    Refrain from drinking while gambling because it will dramatically decrease your judgment and thus your chances.
  • Gamble mathematically and not according to gut:
    If your goal is to win, be aware of the chances you have in doing so, for each game you play. Mathematics is surely a less exiting way to gamble, but it the safest way to prevent from losing bets.
  • Start gambling with smaller amounts and raise the bet slowly:
    Start gambling with less than 10% of your initial deposit, this allows you to feel the game before you really sink into it. Also, you could double your bets without risking a large sum. Only if you feel comfortable with raising the bet, try it, if your not - keep betting small amounts until you do. The only way to win big is to risk big, but the smart and successful gambler knows his limits.
  • Know when to quit:
    Plan when you're going to stop, before you even start playing. The idea is to preserve your winnings, before you start to risk them. Some players quit when they are up 50% from the initial deposit, and others run when they've lost 20%. When you decide on a point you're going to quit on, cling to it no matter what. If you don't quit while you're ahead, you will eventually lose all your money. Don't worry about making up for your loses, or trying to get to large sums. Be happy with what you've won.
  • Keep in mind that losing is an option:
    The games you play are designed so that the house will always have bigger chances of winning then the gambler (Edge). Casinos stay in business because of that, and they're in this business for your money. Educate yourself about the different games, so that you'll broaden your chances of winning, don't be another sucker.
  • Always have fun when playing:
    There's only one more thing you should learn, after understanding all these tips. If you are not a pro, you are playing for fun. This is true for 98% of gamblers, if the fun stops you should do the same and leave the world of online casinos.
