    Default My first real play in a casino!

    Guys, yesterday I decided to try to play real casino. I've been promoting casinos more than 1,5 year and I have never played casino.

    So, I decided to try it and began to find a casino with no deposit bonus, accepting Payspark or Moneybookers and no download. And I noticed a lot of uncomfortable things in my site. It was too difficult to find a casino satisfying my requirements on my site. Ok, finally I found, Platinum Play casino, it doesn't support no download version.

    I started play slots (I have never played them and they were new for me). OK, after an hour of playing I won $65, Platinum Play Casino gave me $200 no deposit bonus, and I won $65.

    After I decided to play PlayGate casino in BlackJack, and I won $140.

    I was such impressed after the play and happy, because I understood a lot of things that I must change in my site.

    It was a good lesson for me as a webmster.

    Congratulations on your good luck. I did it the opposite of you. I waited until I was finished bonus hunting, came out about $5000 ahead, quit my job and started this line of work.

    I didn't know Platinum Play had a $200 no deposit bonus. They do have a flash version.

    I make sure that I regularly play in the online casinos to make sure I keep up to date with the games on offer and often just to get the general look and 'feel' of a casino when writing a review.

    I would think that anyone running a site that promotes online casino playing should do this and have at least one casino for each type of software installed.

    It's a lot easier to write about something if you have first hand experience of it and it doesn't cost as you can always play for free if you like.

    I agree with you, Doolally.

    I also keep one of every kind of software on my hard drive with a fun play account. There's no way I could review new games - or even keep up with them - and get my screenshots if I didn't.

    Since I lose consistently I can't see the point in playing for real money. Maybe if I ever get to be a better gambler...

    I agree. I have been an active sports betting webmaster for years and have run into many, many newer sports webmasters. I can't believe how many dont even have an interest in sports - or gambling. Some industries it may be easier to "fake it" but with the competition in this market, having first hand experience helps you answer the questions that people are looking for.

    I also agree with much of the above. What players seem to want is information - quick and solid. Checking out who we represent is certainly a very important avenue by trying to ascertain what is offered by even playing free games. Seeking areas of information from other sources that I might lack also helps.

    Yes, I know, I don't bet a lot, and I prefer to play on casino money not mine

    I agree with you. I started to promote poker rooms without any knowledge about poker...! Now I play often, I can answer to many questions that my visitors ask to me , and I'm thinking I have to improve some sections on my site.

    Default Knowledge is power

    when you know where you want to go you have better chance getting there

    you have a great looking site, very inviting and not overwhelming with information. knowing what your users are going through will help you make it even better.
