Online gamblers who do their homework know to only play at sites that operate under government-issued licenses. But how do you verify whether a site that claims to be government-licensed is telling the truth?
Before opening a betting account with any Internet gambling service, you should always seek documentation somewhere on the site stating that the operator has been issued an interactive gambling license by a government agency. Don’t forget, however, that anyone can claim to possess such a license and that there is very little anyone can do to stop unlicensed operators from making fraudulent claims being licensed.
It’s important then to go a step beyond locating a licensing statement. Any site claiming to be licensed should be able to prove it. Many sites do this by posting photocopies of their gaming licenses, government seal and all. That’s a start, but a site that’s really on the ball will offer information on how to follow up with the government licensing agency.
Unfortunately, very few sites do this, so it’s usually up to you to double-check on your own. With that in mind, two Caribbean jurisdictions to seriously consider are Antigua and Dominica. The gaming boards for both of these island jurisdictions have established web sites where you can check up on licensees. You can access information on which services own government-issued gambling licenses as well as lists of sites that falsely claim to own government-issued licenses.
In addition to validating gaming licenses, these sites provide a point of contact for Situs Judi Bola gamblers wishing to report questionable activity on the part of licensees. Both sites post contact information for their respective gaming agencies.
[Editor’s Note – The Kahnawake Gaming Commission also licenses online casinos, and while this is not an official government licensing agency, it is becoming increasingly popular with casino operators. Players can find a list of Kahnawake licensees at the commission’s web site.]
King Solomon’s Casino Offers $10000 Bonus
A King Solomon’s Online Casino challenges its competitors by offering its biggest winners special $10,000 bonuses.
This unrivalled promotion, valid until 31 August 2001, is the largest bonus being offered by any online casino portal to winners. “Our aim is to get online players to choose King Solomon’s Casino over others in the increasingly crowded market place,” states Nicky Getley, Customer Loyalty Manager.
She continues, “Although other sites offer Progressive Jackpot slots, players who win over $50,000 by playing any of the five Progressive Jackpots on our site will automatically receive $10,000 free purely because they chose to play with us. By introducing this offer we hope to position King Solomon’s as the market leader in online casino promotions.”
Online casinos have always offered gamblers a host of enticements such as holiday packages or even new cars, but King Solomon’s offer represents a new effort to outbid competitors. Nicky noted, “Our rivals purely entice players with the chance of winning thousands. We offer our players the chance to win thousands and double their excitement at winning by awarding this huge bonus.”
Successfully in operation for over 2 years now, King Solomon’s Casino has established itself as a market-leader in the e-gaming industry. This latest $10,000 offer, known as “Crack-the-Jackpot” may see the scheme extended past the August deadline date due to its popularity.
Within two weeks of the launch, a King Solomon’s player from Oklahoma won $50,415.71 on the Cash Splash Progressive Jackpot. Two weeks later, another player claimed the bonus with a $53,521.97 win on Cash Splash.
The online gaming industry continues to experience significant growth, despite attempts by some governments, such as in Australia, to clip the wings of this branch of e-commerce. Competition is rife for operators determined to establish themselves as market-leaders in what is proving to be an extremely dynamic industry. King Solomon’s Casino has forged a loyal clientele based on its reputation for honesty and trustworthiness.
