There are two different modes to choose from when you play in an online casino – fun mode and real money mode.

Fun mode (also called fun play or practice play) exists so that players can try out games and practice their skills before spending any money. If you don’t end up enjoying the software, it’s much easier to just leave the website when you didn’t buy any credits. The games and their payout percentages work the same as they do in the real money mode.

Start playing in fun mode:

• Download and install the casino software.
• Open the casino application.
• If you don’t have a fun player account, make one.
• Click “Practice”, “Free Play” or another button with similar meaning.

If it’s a no-download casino, only the last two steps apply.

Real money mode lets you bet with and win actual money. On the other hand, you can also lose actual money. The payout percentage in online casinos is usually much higher than in land-based ones – 95% or more.

Start playing in real money mode:

• Download and install the casino software.
• Open the casino application.
• If you don’t have a real player account, make one.
• Click “Real Money”, “Money” or another similar button.
• Click the “Cashier” or “Bank” button.
• Make a deposit. Read rules, terms and conditions very carefully to find out if the right banking options are available to you. Especially for players from the USA some of them might be impossible to use.
• After your deposit goes through, you can start playing.
