If you are like most people, when you see a ‘Terms and Conditions’ section on a webpage, you simply skip over it or skim over it and probably don’t read every word of it. While this might not be a big deal in some cases, if you happen to be dealing with money and transactions involving your financial and personal information, it is in your best interest to make sure you not only read the fine print, you need to print the agreement out so that you have a copy of exactly what you agreed to in the event that something is changed in the future.
If you find yourself in a dispute with an online casino, you certainly don’t want to have them pull out their Terms and Conditions and show you that they are right and you simply didn’t read well enough. Make sure you know everything about their rules before you start playing.
You should make reading the Terms and Conditions is part of your process for finding a reputable casino. This is where you will find some of the most important aspects of your online gambling, such as:
- How much your minimum deposit is and how often you can make deposits;
- How much your minimum withdrawal is and how often you can make withdrawals;
- What the company does with your personal information;
- Whether or not the company has adware or ads that will track you with online cookies;
- How you are paid;
- Methods of deposit;
- Dispute resolution and how it is handled.
These are just a sampling of the things you will learn when you read the fine print of the Terms and Conditions. You should never play in a casino before you read this document.
If you are going to be an online gambler, you might as well be a smart one. Print the Terms and Conditions and save them for your records. You can print them to a PDF using free PDF programs and then you can simply save them to your computer for future reference. You might just find that this saves you in the event of a dispute.
The bottom line is that you have to protect yourself. The casino is out to make money and though most are legitimate, you want to be prepared for that one that you come across that is not.
