People around the world are asking every day - Should I trust online casinos with my money?
Are they legitimate? How does it all work?


It is obvious why people would not trust online casino so quickly, they are created by programmers who know how to manipulate numbers. Programming languages do it quickly. So the underlying assumption is right. It is very tempting for online casinos to go rogue.
