If you have ever searched the internet for tips on how to beat an online casino, you have probably come across many recommendations. Some of them may be good, others may be quite questionable. In this review, we want to help you out a bit and summarize five of the best and most useful tips and tricks for successful online casino reviews in New Zealand that would make me successful at casino gaming in the future.

  1. Bonuses can be deceptive

Practically every casino offers new customers a bonus to entice them to play. Many casinos also offer no deposit bonuses. If you receive a €10 no deposit bonus after signing up, you actually have this money in your account and can gamble with it.

However, it gets exciting when you make winnings and want to have them paid out. The vast majority of casinos have so-called free spins conditions. Some casinos have such absurd free spins conditions – for example, that you have to wager the bonus amount 120 times – that you can never realistically clear the bonus. With such conditions, the gift is actually worth nothing, because the casino ensures with the small print that you never see the money in the end. 

That’s why it’s important to take a look at the small print of casinos before you let yourself be blinded by a great bonus. A good bonus has low free play conditions, but is usually linked to a deposit of at least 20 euros or more.

  1. Play the right games

There are hundreds of online casino games and they all have their own rules, their own odds and some also have their very own playing strategies.

Choose one casino game to focus on and learn how to play that one game. Whether it’s slots or roulette or video poker or something else, pick one game and make it your game.

The best games with the best odds in almost all casinos are blackjack and video poker. For that, you actually have to use some strategy in these games to halfway beat the house.

  1. Pay attention to the payout ratio

Closely related to the previous tip is this one: pay attention to the odds of the games you play.

Every game you play in a casino has a so-called payout ratio (English: “Return to Player” or “RTP” for short). This rate indicates how much a game pays out to the player as a profit on average over the long term. This rate is expressed as a percentage and a payout rate of 95 percent means, for example, that the player is paid an average of 95 cents per euro wagered. It is quite clear that the higher the odds, the better the game is for the player.

While many slot machines have rather poor odds of under 95 percent, there are also some games that reach almost 100 percent. You will practically never get above that because then the casino would make a loss in the long run, and unfortunately, no casino will get involved with such games.

These games have the best payout ratios online:

  • Blackjack (over 99% payout rate)
  • Baccarat (98.9% payout ratio)
  • Video Poker (over 98% payout rate)
  • Slots (90% to 99% payout ratio)
  • Roulette (94.7% – American Roulette – or 97.3% payout – European Roulette)
  1. Be careful with jackpot machines

Almost every casino offers slot machines with jackpots. Especially on the internet, these machines can reach substantial sums of over one million euros. Unfortunately, almost all jackpot machines have lousy payout rates. On average, you only get 90 cents back for one euro you put in – that is much less than with other games. The probability of hitting the jackpot is smaller than the probability of winning the jackpot in the lottery. So you almost always go home with no significant winnings and with losses.

Therefore, never play jackpot machines.

  1. Have fun

Most importantly, always be aware that you are playing at an online casino to have fun. The journey is as much fun as the destination. Remember this when you start playing. If you don’t enjoy the game, don’t play it for now.
