I'm sorry if it's not a totally right section for posting this thread but I didn't find any of them devoted only to casinos.
So are there any players who like them? Which one can you recommend me which is definetely not a scam? I played only real ones, now I'm curious to try the online ones but I really don't know which one is nice and safe from all that great amount of them.
Thanks in advance!

The public perception of online casinos is vastly different from the reality. I've been playing them for years although the recent Australian law changes have caused the big players to cease Australian business which is a shame as Netent and Microgaming were the big players.

So there used to be 1,000s of casinos you could use. 95% of them were legit but the other 5% give the rest a bad name.

Try House of Jack and Emu Casino (auslots is not bad too). Only really 5-10 legit casinos remain for us Aussies to play at and that's more through legal loopholes than anything but they do the right thing and will pay any payouts. 95% ROT is far better than the pubsuckers which way about 82%. Just get yourself validated first so there aren't any delays with withdrawals. Unfortunately though we here in Australia are left with not many game providers to play with anymore but still shits over what you'll get with your money down the pub.

Me and my missus plug the laptop into the big screen TV, get a few beers or whatever going and it's a great night's entertainment on the couch.

I don't profess to be a long term winner on them but if I had have withdrawn after playing through every deposit and bonus I've ever done I'd be $1,000's up only at $1 slots bets but obviously the more you play you'll eventually lose and we're shockers for playing it right down but I think for us it's the entertainment. We played $50 hard for 24 hours straight @ $1 spins and for 90% of the time our balance was between $450 - $800 before we blew it all. Try to do that at the pub!

Gee, the definition of 'a great night's entertainment on the couch' is certainly different in our household.
I spent half an hour last night trying to fix my damn home speaker set up. If I had subsequently plugged in the laptop for some surround sound online slots action I think divorce might have been on the cards.

I cant see the entertainment in it at all because where is the enjoyment coming from? You mathematically cannot win (unless there is a way to pump and dump bonuses? Cant imagine there would be much edge with the turnover requirements though), there is no challenge involved and you are just watching the same graphic non stop

If you can then fair o. Im sure you could get a better run for your money gambling on something else but its your call i guess. But if you are spending 24hrs straight on it til you lose everything that screams trouble

Just entertainment buddy. Last two $50 deposits I could have withdrawn at $1400 and $500 or something like that (in hindsight). We chose to play on. No biggy for $50. I blame the gear. Bloody OCD. We don't do it much.

If I'm depositing $5000 for some serious action I'd do my own ratings on Saturday Metro meets but haven't reprogrammed them since TVF stopped doing their 5 start form which I used to have an excel program I created myself to convert into ratings and kept a database for 10 years I'm a horse man from way back but occasionally we like the non stop action of online pokies for an escape.

Totally agree and we ( Me and the Mrs ) use to play Party Casino a bit and they had great games and excellent deposit bonuses etc and it always beat going down to the local club where you won SFA! We only ever put $50 in when i got a 100% deposit bonus Emailed to me or similar and sometimes that $50 lasted days on end!

Party Casino had massive progressive jackpots that went off all the time and we actually won 2 of them with collects of $870 US and the other was $1250 odd and when i withdrew any money it was in my bank within 24hrs every time. Now though we here cannot play them as of 6 odd Months ago due to some BS Govt thing and the ones that are left available suck compared to Party Casino and i cannot even spend $11 anymore on an online Poker Comp either via Party Poker.

I assume 95% of punters can't win on other forms of gambling either, but it's not like casino's are empty.

Only $50. How many of you instead of wasting money on online casino's are spending $30 every second day on a pack of smokes?

Must be something to it though - you see people glued to the screens at Crown for hours on end.

I know there are people who stay glued to it. Im just saying i dont understand where the enjoyment comes from just watching a computer graphic over and over when you know you cannot win. If you're just an action junkie then surely you could still have more fun betting on something else. Im presuming its just the epileptic lights and sounds that suck people in

Do people still smoke?

The people who design the machines know a lot more about human psychology than the users. They are designed to be as addictive as possible.
