Examining Internet gambling

“The best gambler is an informed gambler.” That message was repeated often by my bosses when I worked in promotions at a casino. The sentence is also the tagline at Casino Examine, a free resource for online gamblers. is a trusted guide, offering a comprehensive list of reviews of the best online casinos in the U.S. The website is dedicated to ensuring safe and secure gaming experiences. Part of being an informed and responsible gambler is knowing whom to turn to avoid scammers.

The site is well designed and easy to navigate. Casino Examine is also a reputable casino portal. What does that mean? Simply put, the site is a gateway, or “information central”, for all things related online gambling. In the early days of online gaming, you entered sites at your own risk, not sure what to expect. Now you can use Casino Examine to research top sites.

The website also offers updated news related to online casinos and gambling. For instance, you’ll find background information to help you understand the issues surrounding proposed legislation that would support Internet betting.

Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., unveiled the bill last week. The Los Angeles Times quoted Frank in a recent story:

"The poker players and other online gamblers have gotten organized," Frank said, adding that he supported the legislation as a matter of personal freedom.

Gamblers visiting will quickly discover that the site offers a list of U.S. friendly online casinos. Reviews identify those casinos that are “100% U.S. friendly”.

Gaming novices and veterans alike will appreciate another Casino Examiner feature – details of online casino game rules. Definitions of several casino games are also readily available. In addition, gamers can sign up for Casino Examiner’s newsletter.

When it comes to gambling, some people prefer the experience of getting into their car and going to their favorite casino. Others prefer the convenience of accessing online games from their own computers. I am sure that there are many people who do both.

I’m not a gambler, but I’d like to think that if I were, I’d be responsible. Bottom line for all gamers: Stay informed and stay safe.
