Always Scrutinize The Companies That You Are Planning on Depositing WithPublished on 2014-03-20 18:27:00
One thing that I always recommend people to do is to scrutinize the companies that they are planning on dealing with before they make a deposit.
This is a very important point, as not all companies are created equal. If you are going to buy a new car, for instance, you will probably do some research as to which companies are the most reputable and have the best reviews.
Shouldn't you do the same thing before you decide to give an online gaming company your credit card information?
All online gaming companies, including the reputable and not-so-reputable firms, will offer initial deposit bonuses in an effort to gain your business.
However, in numerous past cases, shady companies have offered HUGE bonuses in an effort to lure people to deposit money on their sites. The reason? These companies are usually way behind on their payouts and need new money coming in to meet those obligations.
If you come across an initial deposit bonus offer from a company that promises you thousands of dollars in bonuses, you should do some research into the company before you make your deposit. Are they a reputable company? Do they pay out in a timely fashion? Are there any widespread complaints about the payouts?
I bring this up because some of the companies that still service the United States are having tremendous financial difficulties and are months behind in player payouts.
These companies offer MASSIVE initial deposit bonuses, as they are attempting to bring new money into the system so that they can pay out old debts.
You need to be very careful and do your due diligence before deciding to make a deposit with any online gaming firm that you deal with.
Some of the reputable companies that I would have no problems dealing with include:
Pokerstars, Full Tilt Poker, Party Poker, William Hill Poker, Bet365, Bodog
If the company that you are thinking about depositing with ISN'T on this list, you may want to do some of your own research before proceeding with your deposit.
