Yes, online casinos are safe. Reputable operators of online casinos recognise that security is of paramount importance and as such go to extensive lengths to safeguard a player's details.

Online casino transactions are carried out over encrypted connections of military strength (128-bit). This means that when entering your credit card or e-wallet details, the information you enter is scrambled to ensure no other person can read the details you enter. Similarly, the information stored in a casino's database (whether financial or personal account information) is encrypted and can often only be accessed by select individuals.

Of course, a player should also recognise that they have some responsibility when it comes to security. A player should never divulge their account username or password. Similarly, when selecting an online casino to play at a user should ensure they have selected a reputable operation. Casinos operating using well-known software (e.g. Microgaming, Cryptologic, Playtech) are likely to be trustworthy.

As with any financial transaction there is the risk of something going wrong. However, this risk is as low when playing at an online casino as when purchasing from any other online store in a 'real world' shop.

When it comes to collecting winnings or requesting a balance withdrawal, this again should not be difficult if dealing with a reputable online casino. Many licensing jurisdictions require casinos to demonstrate their financial stability before permits will be granted and some go as far insisting bonds or insurance is held to cover player balances. Again, a player should research a casino before playing to ensure they are confident in the casino's operation.

It is very rare to hear of players being the victims of fraud or non-payment when they have chosen to play at reputable casinos and have abided by the casino's rules.
