How to Play Casino Games
Slot Games - Slot machines are fun and in most cases packed with entertainment. They are by far the simplest of games to play, since no strategy is involved and by far the most popular.

Three reel slots – The three reel slot can offer a single pay line or multiple depending on the game. Some of Bally’s biggest slot machines are three reel slots such as Blazing 7’s which include up to 9 different pay lines. Three reel slots mimic the old one armed bandits and usually require players to bet max in order to qualify for the big jackpots.
Five reel slots – The Five reel slot is the most common type of slot machine found on the casino floor. The modern five reel slots are video bonus slots and typically offer free spins, bonus rounds where players can play for instant credits and superb graphics. The pay lines are spread across five reels (hence the name) and can range from 5 pay lines up to a 100. Although the five reel slots are packed with entertainment, they are also the most expensive to play.

Are Online Casino Games Safe?
The best casinos are safe, but you still need to do your homework. Safe casinos use a 128-bit encryption, which is the same security your bank uses for online transactions. Your information should be stored on a secure sever using an SSL (Secure Socket Layer). To double check, look for a small lock pad icon. The icon should be available on the main website or in the casino lobby in the lower right hand corner. Click the icon, and the SSL certificate should pop-up. Safe casinos will use a certified RNG (Random Number Generator). These casinos submit to frequent audits thus ensuring games are 100% fair and random. Furthermore, many of the top casinos will publish the results of the audits on their website. If you can't find the audit, or it's not available on site, simply send the casino a request through email, and they should provide you with the information. Audits are typically performed by a third party, which can include TST (Technical Systems Testing), and PWC (Price Waterhouse Cooper).
