When it comes to online gambling you will always want the maximum safety so, here you are some tips to avoid being scammed. The most important thing when you have to choose a place to play online is to be sure that it is a reliable site and you are taking no risks with your money and your personal data. The wrong site will scam your money and may sell your personal data to third parties so it is very important for you to keep safe when gambling at online casino.
Make sure it is a place regulated under any competent authority. For taxing reasons, the most part of sites is legislated under the laws of Malta or Gibraltar, but if they are behind them, they are likely to be safe. Bingo sites may be located all around the world, but Malta and Gibraltar are the best legislations for them and even they are small places they host a whole bunch of gambling sites and they are safe. If you have any doubt if they may be faking their legislation, go to the competent government page and take a look at the list to see if they appear or ask directly to them.
The second most important thing is to see if they are verified by third parties. Third parties are control organizations which verify the randomness of the site as well as their payout rates. An example of them is eCOGRA, but there are some others. To know if a site is verified by these companies, take a look at the logos on the bottom of the site, if the logo appears you can click on it and you will be redirected to the verifying organization and there you will see the reports of the site.
Remember that no gambling site will ask for personal data by email or phone and if you get a mail from them with a link to the site you got to verify that the link goes to the site you play before putting your password, and it is not a phishing attempt against you.
