Hello Everyone, in this post we are going to go over legitimate sources for casino bonuses and bonus review information. Many sites have a total and obvious bias towards what sites they are referring you to. Imagine fox and other big USA television network news vs what you see on the news on BBC. For instance, I knew ages ago that there was a credit crisis and that the stock market was starting to crash because I watch and listen to alternate non-primetime news. Sites online have affiliates that promote them by linking to them. Whenever they get a link that is clicked, they either get a portion of what is made, or a paid amount right on the spot. This is great and should provide a nice example of customer service. Much like big box retail stores, I think that customer service is increased greatly whenever a commission is paid. The problem is, most big box stores have products that are worthwhile and won’t crap out on you the second they can. However, with online casinos and casino bonus providers, there is a ton of junk that you have to be able to wade through to get to the really good stuff. One of the key providers of inside information for me is Affiliate Guard Dog. They have a ton of information, but it can take a while to search through to get to the real answer, so be patient. This is where affiliates go when casinos screw them over or their customers. Affiliates are still pissed when a casino messes with their customers, but they don’t want to keep any future money makers from depositing because if it all works out they still will continue to make money. Also, I find that when a casino is really going south, they always screw over their affiliates before anyone else. It doesn't announce to the public that you are going broke, or have serious internal issues that you need to deal with. That being said, per my experience, this is a great site to tell what the casino experts really think about a casino and not just the fluff that they pass you to get you to click a link and sign up. Also, another source that has been extremely useful is player preferred's casino bonus list. When looking for a casino reviews, I tend to use their page as well. They clearly are affiliates, but often flame the sites that are listed on their page leading me to believe they are more interested in providing the review service and having happy customers that return as a means of income – instead of tricking you into clicking that one link and having a bad experience/not ever coming back. I don’t understand why more sites don’t provide this as a service instead of as a greedy half-assed black market attempt. While there are many sites out there that are horrible, there are just as many trying to keep things clean and run a solid business. Learn from these materials and you will have a great time without getting a total headache out of the deal. That is all for today, make sure to check out my holiday bonus post as well, see ya soon.

Hello everyone, today I plan on giving you the tools you need in order to find out if a specific casino should be considered a legit form of entertainment, or one of the many scams that seem to have floated their way into the casino scene lately. There are several ways that you can detect if a casino is not what they say they are. Here is a list of tall-tale signs that you should be making your exit quickly:
1.) The casino has an item in their terms of service and it seems to be contradicted. If you are playing a game or even download the casino before depositing and notice that there are games listed to be able to be played that are not part of the promotion that is a bad thing. You should NOT be able to play them while the bonus is active. Also, if there are statements in the casino software itself or anywhere else officially posted that contradict these rules.
2.) If you contact support and they seem to know nothing about the casino. You want a casino that has in house support and is not confused about rules that have been set forth. Normally, when things start to go bad, support starts to contradict rules that the casino has instilled.
3.) There are tons of rules that seem to protect the casino against any kind of malfunction, but there are none that protect a user in any way. Definitely, GET OUT. Do not attempt to play on this kind of site, a contract should have a benefit between both parties and if they are guarantee nothing, but expect the world in return please do not play at their online establishment.
Alongside these rules there are other sites that can help you benefit. Affiliate guard dog is a nice site that gives you some great insight into what casinos have poor business practices. Also, LCB and many smaller blogs are great sources to find out what players REALLY think about these casino giants. That being said, not all online casinos or even most are scams. There is a much greater incentive to keep business and make money the normal way. Losing reputation is a nightmare for most casinos and so it shouldn't be very hard to find out which casinos are not responding to online requests to make things right. There are so many casinos online that my recommendation is, when in doubt, don't. That's all for Casino Informant today, good luck and have fun at the casinos!
