  • See if they offer customer support. Some casinos offer customer support in English and Afrikaans;
  • You don’t have to limit yourself to just one casino, you can open accounts with few, even several online casinos.

Check the Bonuses

Before you make your deposit, always check the bonus options offered by the casino in question. Some casinos require players to opt in before they make their first deposit. If you fail to do so, you might not be eligible to receive the bonus.

Also, some casinos may offer a ‘No deposit’ bonus, which means that you can start playing for real money before you even make your first deposit. Remember that bonuses come with wagering requirements, so even if you receive such a bonus, you’ll still need to make a deposit and wager some of your own money, before you can withdraw any of the winnings.

Deposit Wisely, Avoid Unnecessary Fees

Always make sure to check the casino’s banking options. The devil is in the details, so make sure that you read the terms and conditions carefully. Check the deposit limit, both the minimum and the maximum. Some casinos set limits both per individual transaction and per month.

Choose the deposit method that’s most convenient for you. Note that most casinos would require you to withdraw using the same method you used to deposit, if the method in question is an accepted withdrawal method.
Most importantly, always check how long does it take for the casino to process your deposit and whether there are any fees. Some casinos may charge fees on certain deposit methods, and its best to avoid those methods and/or those casinos, as nobody wants to spend money when they don’t have to.

Finally, when you make a deposit, don’t deposit more than you can afford to lose. It is best to set a limit of how much you are going to deposit on a monthly or a weekly basis and stick to it.
