An interesting read in the general casino news this week centres around rigging of online casinos with people reporting massive and unfathomable losing streaks such as losing 50 hands in a row at online blackjack which it is practically impossible to do if playing normally. If you are going to draw a card at 18 or 19 the chances are you will lose but if you stand on anything, within 50 hands the dealer will for sure bust. There are without doubt a host of rigged online casinos out there available to Irish casino players and many of them look authentic enough but the casino news reports that many online casino players do not know which casinos are rigged and which are not but there is help at hand. For Irish online casino players there is a site called www.casinos.ie which has been around for a few years and who investigate online casinos and check for correct licensing and whether the online casino in question is operating under the control of one of the authorised territories. There are a number of these including Malta, Gibraltar and the Isle of Man although this is not an exhaustive list but beware of registrations in such places as Venezuala, Costa Rica or Kahnawake. Some online casinos will not even tell you on the site where they are registered which also a tell tale sign. The casino news is quick to point out that registration in a good territory is not guaranteed to result in a good online casino as there are a number of other factors to take into consideration. One of those also in the casino news is which casino software is being used and once again there are a few top software providers such as NetEnt, Playtech, Microgaming or Chartwell but yet again even using reputable software such as these does not guarantee fair play. This article will be continued in a couple of days on July 22nd where a closer look will be had at casinos.ie and what it can do for you.
