Here we are into 2013 already and whilst many Irish casino players will be counting the cost of the festive season others will be looking back upon what was a profitable couple of weeks wondering if the luck can last. Here at casinos.ie we have been guiding Irish online casino players as well as those from several other countries to safe places to gamble and to that end we list only six online casinos on our site which we know to provide a safe and secure environment in which to play your favourite online casino games. Those six online casinos also provide, in the opinion of casinos.ie, sufficient choice of casino games to satisfy even the most demanding of casino players. A couple of those online casinos are very well known names in the Irish gambling world due to their presence on the high street and we refer here to Paddy Power casino and Ladbrokes casino whereas others such as 888 casino might be better known from the sporting world and are probably better known in other parts of Europe than here in Ireland. We also have Party casino and although many Irish casino players will have heard of Party Poker you maybe did not realise that they also have a very good online casino. Casinos.ie does not stop there however as our research has suggested that there are other purely online providers that have excellent sites such as Spin Palace casino or Bwin casino. Bwin in particular will be a well known name for football enthusiasts as they are shirt sponsors of such famous names as Real Madrid and in fact Bwin and Party have fairly recently merged to form Bwin.Party and are listed as such on the London Stock Exchange although they still operate separate online casino sites. Casinos.ie will continue throughout the year to monitor what is happening in the online casino world and hopefully bring you things of interest.
