Free Casino Games are for Real

McAfee warns of using free in search. But free casino games are 100% real.

Antivirus software and intrusion prevention software McAfee released some interesting insights in its latest report. Though its title - Digital Music & Movies Report: The True Cost of Free Entertainment 2010 - refers to music and videos, it has a lot to do with casino games. Free casino games, to be exact.

McAfee Report

Apparently, and this comes as little surprise, there is a growing number of cyber threats associated with online music and videos that include the use of "free" in the search term. Malware is now hidden in streaming MP3s and video that come up in results to searches of free music, ringtones and videos.

Free music and videos offered on Twitter are also dangerous to your browser.

So use good judgment and common sense before clicking on links.

Legitimately Free

However, not all free offers online are malicious, MP3s and videos included. This is also true of online gambling, where dangers exist, no doubt, but legitimate offers are aplenty.

Take for example free games. Players who want to play for fun, and for free, on flash games that require no download, can do so on any casino game under the sun, including slots, roulette, baccarat, blackjack, video Poker, craps, bingo, keno and even poker.

How to Keep Safe

OK, if both exist, conniving websites and reputable casinos, what can you do?

For starters, follow the advice of reputable casino portals (eCOGRA seals like the one on the bottom of this page can help).

Secondly , shop around for your favorite casino games, but limit the playing field to the legitimate ones with similar seals and our own recommendation (the top 10 casinos on our website are a good place to start).

Thirdly, McAffee said it well and we will repeat: Use your common sense.

Yes! I want to know about exclusive bonuses, promotions, and news.
