We are actually not sure exactly how many online casinos are available to the Irish public but here at casinos.ie we have looked at quite a lot to come up with a short list of six (possibly seven in the near future as we are studying closely a possible new entrant) and those that we list on our site at www.casinos.ie are trusted and reputable online casinos so if you decide to venture outside our recommendations then please do your homework as we have done. With all those online casinos out there it can be quite difficult to decide what is a good one and what is not but there are several clues; firstly look at whether the online casino uses its own created software or whether they use one of the major providers such as Netent or Playtech or other well known brands. A well known brand of software will almost certainly provide a safe casino environment with a good chance of winning; secondly look out for correct certification and licensing from one of the known online casino hotspots such as Alderney, Isle of Man, Malta and Gibraltar; these governments will only issue licenses to bone fide companies. Casinos.ie will also look for voluntary codes of conduct or membership of voluntary organizations of which there are a number and if the company is listed on one or more stock exchanges it adds a little to know that corporate governance is probably under control. If you cannot be bothered to check all these things don’t worry, simply play your online casino at any one of those recommended and listed here at casinos.ie; we list a top three based on our opinion of offering and graphics but any of the six online casinos should be perfectly safe and secure which enhances your online casino enjoyment..
