Online Gambling

A lot of my friends have started gambling online recently and I was always curious on how it all worked, and if it was safe. So I asked my friend Jared how he got started with online gambling and he recommended me this online casino guide. For a newbie like me it was great to find a website with all the information about online casinos gathered in one place. The website is quite easy to use and they have listed the best free spins bonuses (promotions where you can play slots for free, with real money by just opening an account), casino bonuses (extra money that you receive to boost your bankroll when making a deposit) and reviews of the most popular online casinos, among other things.

I quickly browsed through the different offers and found a bonus that would give me 50 free spins on Starburst by just registering. Starburst is apparently one of the most popular slot machines and was created by a game provider called Netent.

I registered my account and lo and behold, I had 50 free spins on my account. I started spinning away and after I had played those 50 free spins I had made a profit of $25. Although this bonus was free, it did come with a few terms & conditions. The $25 profit came with a 35 times wagering requirement, which means I have to play through $25 x 35 ($875), before I can withdraw any money.

The first thing I did was hitting the roulette tables where I quickly doubled up on RED two times until I had $100. With these $100 I continued to play Starburst until I had bet for a total of $900. It took me about two hours since I was betting quite small stakes, but finally I came out a winner with a balance of $300 which I withdrew.

So I can honestly say I had a pretty good experience with online gambling the first time I tried it. I know that most people lose their money and in no way I’m condoning online gambling, but I’m merely talking about my personal experience. I truly felt an adrenaline rush when I was winning.
