All legitimate online casinos pay real money when you create an account, wager from a payment account, and win while playing slots, poker, blackjack, or other casino games. Some online casinos let you play some online casino games for free. These free games are demos that allow you to test how the game plays on your computer and whether you like playing the game enough to wager real money. But since you aren’t betting real money, you cannot win in demo mode.

There are some instances in which you may not be able to receive your earnings, including cheating, unverified personal information or banking information, and not adhering to terms and conditions. Here are some things you should do to ensure you earn your winnings:

  • Use accurate personal information when creating your account.

  • Verify your identity and banking information.

  • Keep your username and password secure.

  • Follow all casino rules.

  • Play online casino games at home in a state where online gambling is legal.

There are illegitimate online casino sites that may try to withhold your winnings, so be sure to verify the online casino’s registration with a legitimate regulating authority before creating an account, providing your payment account information, and playing with real money.
