Six Signs That Your Online Casino Site Is Secure

Online casinos

Online casinos have become how many people play casino games, bet on lotteries, and wager on sporting events. In recent years technology has advanced to a place where online casinos are faster, more secure, and have a much broader range of gaming options than traditional casinos. 

To use an online casino, you must fund your account. This is how you pay for wagers. The account you set up is where you will receive your winnings. It is essential that the casino is safe and protects your account information. 

This article will give you several ways to check your chosen site to ensure your safety.

  1. Reputation

Before setting up an account and using an online casino, check its reputation. Look for names of former winners, current offers, and stories of lottery jackpots online. Online casinos will post awards they have earned, and their company website will provide any information you need to see. 

Lottoland is a transnational online casino and lottery site. They are leaders in the industry. When you type Lottoland into a Google search, you will see they have operations in more than 30 countries. You may see where they were listed in the Guinness Book of World Records and have earned other awards. 

The Lottoland sites in your search will feature various games and lotteries at Lottoland, informative articles, statistical data, and lists of winners. All of the information to verify this company is listed on its corporate site.

It is clear to see they have a solid reputation. If the site you are considering does not offer this type of information, you should question its reliability.  

  1. License

Every online casino must be licensed to operate legally. Online casino licenses are not simply something you purchase. There are strict laws, rules, and regulations set forth by the country’s regulatory agency. After a license is issued, the online casino is audited regularly, verifying that they have the means and system to honor all winnings. 

A quality online casino will list the agencies they are registered with on their websites. You have no protection if you choose to use an unlicensed vendor. 

Some of the most highly regarded licensing authorities include;

  • HM Government of Gibraltar
  • UK Gambling Commission
  • Swedish Gambling Authority
  • Government of the Northern Territory
  • Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli
  • Malta Authority

 3. SSL Certificate

SSL is a security certificate that tells you the information shared between two electronic devices is concealed or encrypted. For example, when a smartphone communicates with a server, the data is secured via encryption. An SSL certificate guarantees the communication between your device and theirs cannot be intercepted.

Here is how to know if your system is SSL encrypted. Look at the address bar at the top of the screen. If your site is encrypted, you will see the HTTPS:// at the beginning of the URL. The “S” stands for secure. You should also see an image of a locked padlock in the left corner of the search bar.

Google takes SSL certification seriously. Your security is of prime concern to them. A company must have SSL certification to be in the top listings on Google searches. 

Any site you access that requires financial transfers needs these two indicators. Online casino sites only allow one user per account, and that user needs a quality password that is never shared. When payments of winnings are transferred to your account, only the person with the password has access.

4. Insurance

As we explained, online casinos must prove to the regulatory agents that jackpots are immediately payable. Usually, online casinos use insurance to cover jackpot wins. The funds are directly payable to the winner of a lottery without delay. You should be able to verify that the online casino has insurance. It is ill-advised to use a company that does not provide that information. 

5. Information on every game is detailed.

Before you play a game, you should know the odds of winning and the RTP (return to player.) 

No reputable company would omit this information. If it is not in writing, they can claim anything they want after the fact. You should be able to contact its customer service for more information in more than one way. Usually, they will have an online chat and email options. Do not play a game without knowing this information.


If you follow the above tips, you can feel comfortable taking all the necessary steps to keep your information private. The extra few minutes you spend checking a site before using them is invaluable. Once you find your site, there will be no reason to look further.
