Whilst there are often a large number of differences on the surface of online casinos in the way they look aesthetically or in the genres they provide, more often than not anything below the surface level feels the same – often times casinos offer the same selection of games, and the same selection of promotions and terms too. Differences can often be found in smaller processes however such as the registration process, the pay-out and withdrawal process, and other small options in-between can vary greatly – but what is it that leads to these larger differences between online platforms?
Different country regulations play a large role here particularly within the registration process – services registered in the UK for example will require to have documentation provided upfront to ensure the player is of legal age, whereas Curacao registered casinos may not required any identification until withdrawal of funds is requested – these differences exist across many different regulation bodies and will often be the biggest difference that is found between these services for most players.
Other differences can be found in the way that games play for the similar reasons – recent changes in the UK saw slots go through quite a major change to slow down the process and remove things such as turbo play options whereas non-UK casinos won’t be subject to these changes – it may be important for some players to read up on these changes ahead of committing to a certain platform as it could have an impact of their gaming experience too.
Players may also find differences in accepted and allowed payment and withdrawal methods between regions too – once again the UK provides the difference here with a ban on credit cards being used as a payment option, some countries may not allow the use of crypto-currency, and others may be more restrictive of e-wallet options too – as payment methods are of the most important aspect of these gaming platforms, differences here can be quite impactful on the experience too.
With operators for new casinos popping up all over, and licensing for these casinos appearing in many different countries around the world, there’s a huge amount of variety between what these casinos actually offer depending on some of the factors above – it’s more important to research these options head of time before registering and before playing, as there can be quite a large amount of differences between even those that look extremely similar, and the difference can show in some of the most vital parts of the experience.
