10 Rules of Etiquette Online Gamblers Should Abide

We are all familiar with the basic rules at land based casinos and the general etiquette that must be followed when playing there. But, what most people don’t realize is that the world of online poker works the same way even though there are no hard-fact rules listed for online casinos.

Most of the etiquette rules of land based casinos apply to online casinos as well. Of course, there are a few exceptions as you are not actually present at the casino in person and are not face to face with the other players. There are a few things some can get away with as a result of these differences in the playing environment. Nevertheless, some principles must be followed even in online gambling to ensure the best gambling experience for you and your fellow players. Here are 10 rules of proper etiquette when gambling online:

  1. Know all the rules – Before playing online, be aware of the rules of conduct of the online casino, if there any. Failure to abide by these rules may even sometimes lead to termination of your membership. Also do your research about the casino game you are going to play and be prepared. Study the rules either on the website or from other sources and seek out rules that suit your strengths (without cheating!).
  2. Know the law – Ensure that online gambling is legal in your country, state, province or whatever region you are playing from. It’s important to be informed about your country’s legislation in this field. Otherwise you’ll be losing more than just your hand at poker!
  3. Expect to lose – The saying, “The house always wins” is pretty accurate. Be realistic of the fact that the odds won’t always be in your favor. Most of the time, they are in the favor of the house no matter how lucky or strategically smart you may be. Expecting to win every time will only lead to frustration and losing more money than necessary!
  4. Don’t bet more than you can afford – The purpose of gambling is to have fun but gambling away all your money is not! The key is to know how much you can afford and to stick to that limit. Getting caught in the fever of the game and exceeding your financial limit leads to gambling addiction. Many online casinos offer a spending limit which you can set for yourself in order to not overspend. Some casinos even go above and beyond by offering a self-ban function which you can use to ban yourself from playing for a few weeks or months if you feel it’s necessary. Make use of these features if you need to!
  5. Don’t use betting systems – There are no definite ways to win the game. Don’t believe anyone who says they have a fail-safe system of winning against the house. Betting systems fail to beat casino games with a house advantage. Stick to proven mathematical strategies instead of wasting your money on someone’s betting system with a promise of beating the casino game with luck.
  6. Pay attention to odds – Give yourself the best chance of winning. The game may favor the house, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t create a few advantages for yourself. All casino games are designed based on percentages and probabilities and mathematical statistics are proven to give you a better chance at winning! Understand the odds of each game because not every casino game has the same odds.
  7. Play to win –Yes, gambling is fun. But when you play, take online gambling seriously and play to win. Gambling online affords players the luxury of more time to get their game straight. Use this to your advantage!
  8. Be aware of the time – Taking a moment to consider your next move is fine but only if you do it in a timely fashion and don’t keep the other players waiting. If something requires your attention away from the computer use the ‘sit out next hand’ button. Everyone will thank you for it!
  9. Control your emotions – No flaming! If you are angry or frustrated, the worst thing you can do is continue playing or take it out on the other players. Step away for a moment, take a breather, and calm down before returning to the game.
  10. Behave yourself – Be polite and mind your manners. You will come across all types of people while gambling online, but playing online shouldn’t make you forget that they are still real people. It pays to be courteous, even if your style is playing aggressive.

Happy Gambling!
