Safety First: How to Gamble Safely at Ignition Casino
The year was 1994. Online casinos burst onto the scene when Barbuda and Antigua passed the Free Trade & Processing Act. With this bill, licenses could legally be granted to organizations wanting to open online casinos. Software company Microgaming was the first to develop a functional gambling software. They did so with the help of CryptoLogic, an online security software company. They worked to ensure safe transactions for all online gamblers.
In 1996, the online casino industry saw a huge boom. At the start of the year, there were only 15 online casino sites, but by the end of the year, there were 200! In 1998, online gambling revenues surpassed $830 million. Yep, we’re serious – and that’s just for one year!
Within six years, an estimated 8 million people were taking part in online gambling. Despite some legal challenges in the industry, this number continued to skyrocket.
Now, in 2021, online casinos are crazy popular. As many as 1.6 billion gamblers from all across the globe contribute to what is now a $46 billion industry. Crazy, right?
With those kinds of numbers, security needs to be a top priority. At Ignition Casino, it’s a concern we take super seriously. If we didn’t we would have no business being in the online poker game – and honestly, we can’t imagine that kind of world.
So, how do protect players’ data and optimise their playing experience on the Ignition website? Let’s take a look.
Name Your Game. Skilled or Lucky?
Let’s make one thing clear right off the bat: when it comes to picking a game to play in an online casino, you need to think about skill vs. luck. Are you winning based on skill or just sheer luck? Seasoned players will say it’s a mix of both – and they’d often be right. Many online casinos require both skill and luck to win. That said, there are heaps of games that are all skill and heaps that are all luck.
For example, Blackjack and video poker require strategy during gameplay. But there’s still some skill involved in those strategies. With both skill and luck on your side, you’re sure to have more success in your favourite games.
Games of Luck: Pokies, Craps, and Baccarat
You probably know by now that pokies are all about chance because they don’t require any skill. All you need to do is place your bet, hit the button, and hope for the best! From there, you either win or lose – and it’s all based on luck. Pokies are controlled by random number generators, meaning you have no control over the outcome. Now, that doesn’t mean these games are any less fun. Because they’re so easy and involve little strategy, you could play the pokies for hours if you wanted to. Have some fun, win some cash – there’s nothing to not like.
Your fate is in the hands of the dice. Reckon they’ll roll in your favour? Play Craps on the Ignition website to find out!
Craps relies entirely on the roll of the dice. Kinda hard to come up with strategies when that’s the case, isn’t it? That said, you can smarten up your strategies when it comes to wagering.
Some people say it’s best to rely on bets that minimise the house edge, therefore giving you the best odds. Others say that you should raise any winning pass line bet by 30% and take double odds. To give these strategies a go, try a practice round – or you know, 10 practice rounds!
In Baccarat, seasoned players recommend betting with the banker. Why? Because this puts the house edge in your favour. Many players advise against tie bets, which tip the odds in the house’s favour. Just remember: practice makes perfect.
Blackjack: Big Skills Lead to Big Wins
Everybody knows the goal of Blackjack: score higher than the dealer without going above 21. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. You need some killer skills and strategies to succeed in this game. You’ve gotta know when to hold, when to split a pair, when to surrender, when to hit. As we said, you need some killer skills.
Self-control is a must – and it’s not always easy. To have a better shot at winning, you need to be able to confidently decide when you’ll hit and when you’ll stand. Don’t forget that, at Ignition Casino, the dealer has to stand on a 17. You aren’t required to do that, though, which is where your skill meets a little bit of luck.
At Ignition Casino, we’re all about you. That’s why we like to tip the odds in your favour with helpful hints and strategies. Check ‘em out for yourself and see if it improves your game!
Poker: Marrying Skills with Luck
In poker, you sometimes get a crappy starting hand. It’s just luck of the draw, you know? But you need to have the skill to know what to do when this happens. And that my friend, is how poker combines the worlds of skill and luck.
When you’re learning a new online poker game, it’s normal to suck. The trick is to power through this awkward phase and learn the fundamentals of poker strategy.
Where can you find those important basics? We thought you’d never ask! Right here on the Ignition website, obviously!
