Answers To Your Top Ignition Casino FAQ (Part 1)

We get it – trying anything new for the first time can be scary! The first day of a new job? The first time you asked someone on a date? By now, the flashbacks are probably giving you the nervous sweats. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.

Online gambling is exactly the same. As a newbie, it can be a little nerve-wracking. You don’t know what you’re doing, you’re surrounded by players who are savvier than you. It’s like you’re a fish in an ocean of sharks (and in the world of online poker, that’s sometimes the case – literally). 

If you’re new to online gambling, you’re bound to have questions. Well, you came to the right place, mate! We have the answers. We’re here to answer all your top casino FAQs with all the casino information you could ever want. To help you navigate this brave new world, we’ve compiled a list of our Ignition Casino FAQs and their answers. Let’s get right into it!

1. How do online casino pokies work and how are they different from traditional pokies?

Ah, pokies. We all know and love ‘em – and soon, you’ll love the online versions, too! 

If you’ve never played online pokies, we can see how they might be a little confusing. So, allow us to break it down for you. Online casino pokies are a lot like traditional pokies. They usually feature the same basic rules, rely on chance and require no skill. They also offer you some sweet chances of winning awesome jackpots. But they do have their differences. 

Firstly, online casino pokies are – shocker! – online. That means the way you play is going to look very different. When you play online casino pokies, you simply press a button on your computer, phone, or tablet to spin the reels. A neutral algorithm then determines which symbols appear on the screen. If a winning combo is detected, you score a payday! When you’re playing traditional pokies, you hit a button or pull a lever on the actual machine itself and the mechanics of the machine generate the symbols.

Online casino pokies are also way more convenient. Traditional pokies are only found in licensed venues where gambling is allowed, like a pub or a brick-and-mortar casino. But online pokies? You can access ‘em on your laptop, smartphone, or tablet – anywhere, anytime. If you ask us, that level of convenience can’t be topped. 

2. How can you win money playing pokies?

Pokies rely heavily on chance. So, you might think your only shot at winning money on ‘em is by crossing your fingers and hoping you score some winning symbols. Well, legend, think again!

Believe it or not, there are some strategies you can apply to line your pockets with some sweet cash. For a start, be sure to take advantage of sweet bonuses. For example, at Ignition, we offer a killer Welcome Bonus, which can earn you up to $2,000 – and $1,000 will be available for use right away in the casino! We also offer other unreal promos and bonuses, which you can find here. You’re so welcome, by the way. 

Winning money on pokies is also all about playing smart. A big part of that? Knowing when to play down and when to walk away. If you’re on a losing streak – we’ve all been there – lower your wagers to give yourself more time to turn things around and win big. Still not happening? Walk away and live to fight another day. Sometimes, it’s not all about winning – it’s about not losing!

3. Can you trust online casinos and gambling sites?

Listen, we get it. You work hard for your money and you want to know where it’s going – who wouldn’t?

There are a few key things to look out for to figure out if you’re on a legit gambling site. First, take a peek at the address bar in your web browser. Is there a little padlock symbol in front of the URL? Does the URL start with “https”? If so, those are great signs. That means the site is secure and uses high-level encryption measures to keep your details safe and private.

Another sign of a trustworthy casino is a high level of support. For instance, we have the Ignition Help Centre, which offers you the support you need whenever you need it. When you come to us, you’ll rest easy knowing you’re in reliable hands. 

4. Are online casino games rigged?

At the end of the day, online casinos are businesses. So, you might think that our end game is to just take your money by any means possible. With some casinos, that may be the case. But at Ignition, we don’t play that way.

With the help of random number generators, we ensure that every player has an equal shot at securing a win. Plus, we also offer an Anonymous Tables feature, which allows you to play incognito and protects you from players using heads-up displays (HUDs). No spying. No unfair advantages. No dramas.

5. Which casino games pay the best?

Don’t shoot the messenger, but there’s really no magic formula for finding the games with the highest payouts. In most cases, your payout is based on your wager and your perseverance. So, we recommend choosing games that you love.

Into fantasy? We’ve got dragons for you to slay and fairies for you to befriend. More of a sport fan? From ice hockey to basketball to soccer, we’ve got something to meet that need!

6. What casino games have the best chance of winning?

This is definitely one of the top casino FAQs out there – and for good reason! Everybody likes winning, right? 

The best way to find the casino games with the highest winning odds is to check out the Return to Player (RTP) percentage. RTP is basically the opposite of a casino’s house edge. So, if the house edge is 5.5%, the RTP would be 94.5%. The higher the RTP, the better your odds of landing an epic payday! Not all online casinos feature this information on their sites, but Ignition? You know we’re all about transparency. That’s why you’ll have no trouble finding those details on our site. 

7. Can you combine casino promotions/bonuses?

Absolutely! Honestly, at Ignition, we have so many promos and bonuses available that it would be almost criminal if you couldn’t combine them.

For example, we offer a killer Welcome Bonus, which can earn you up to $2,000, half of which will be available for use right away in the casino! Make your initial deposit with Bitcoin and that number jumps up even higher to a maximum of $3,000, with $1,500 available for use in the casino. We also offer other unreal promos and bonuses, like the Tell-a-Friend Bonus and Weekly Boosts, which you can find here. You’re so welcome, by the way. 

8. Are casino winnings taxed? 

Casino winnings aren’t taxable. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) sees gambling winnings as the result of good luck, rather than income from hard work. Clearly they’ve never spent hours crouched over their computer playing round after round of Fairy Wins or Zombie FC. If that’s not hard work, we don’t know what is. 

9. Which casino has the best bonuses/rewards?

At the risk of sounding biased, Ignition Casino has hands-down the best online casino bonuses and rewards. As we said, we offer a wide range of promos and bonuses to spoil our members. Check ‘em out for yourself and you’ll realise we’re not just talking ourselves up – we’re putting our money where our mouth is!
