Brick and mortar casinos aren’t the only places that can offer real money payouts for slots and table games. You can play online casino games right from the comfort of home on a computer, or on the go with a smartphone thanks to our mobile casino. We have the same games that you’d find in a land-based casino, including classics like Craps, Roulette, and Blackjack, as well as a vast array of casino slot games. Without the constraints of a physical space, online casinos are free to continue adding more and more new games without having to remove old ones that are still enjoyed by a loyal fanbase.

In this slots and table games guide, we aim to show you how to set yourself up for success by explaining how various welcome bonuses work, how to get a free trial with any game on our site, and then how to transition to real money mode once you’re ready to pocket wins triggered through gameplay. Even if you’ve never stepped foot in a casino before, this guide will get you comfortable navigating the online casino realm at Cafe.

Getting Started

The first step to accessing online casino slots for real money is to set up an account at Cafe Casino. This requires some basic information about yourself such as your name, birthday and mobile number, which we keep secure. Once you’ve got your login information, you can deposit funds into your account with a credit card, or with bitcoin or bitcoin cash—be sure to check out our welcome bonuses before depositing though because there are plenty of ways to get extra cash on the house.

For one, we have a bitcoin promotion for first-time bitcoin deposits that’s especially generous, as it can contribute up to $7,500 through your first nine deposits. Based on this incentive alone, you may want to consider using this popular cryptocurrency instead of the more traditional deposit methods. Our standard (non-bitcoin) welcome bonus is almost as good; it offers up to $5,000 in extra cash through your first nine deposits thanks to a series of match bonuses.

Keep in mind, all bonuses come with rollover requirements that require the bonus money to be “played through” a certain number of times before it can be withdrawn. For example, a 5X rollover requirement means the deposit money needs to wagered in the casino five times before it can be withdrawn. Details on rollover requirements can be found in the bonus’ terms and conditions, and you’ll also be able to see exactly how far you’ve progressed through a rollover in the bonus section of your account details. Once you fulfill the rollover requirement, the bonus money is free to withdraw along with any winnings associated with it.


Practice Makes Perfect

When you begin to browse through the slots and table games available in our casino, you may want to try some of them for free before investing your bankroll. A free trial gives you an idea of how the games work, and makes it easy for you to decide whether or not you want to pursue the game in “Real Play” mode. A practice round is almost necessary for certain games with extensive rules, like Craps, which takes a little getting used to before you can play with confidence. Our strategy articles and game guides will also help you develop a solid understanding of how to win at these more complicated games, which often have the best odds in the house.

But there’s no substitute for good old practice, and every game in our casino has both a Practice version and a Real Play one. Practice mode launches the game the exact same way it normally plays, but with $1,000 in play money. You can set the betting configurations to reflect how much you’d actually want to spend and then play through the bankroll as you get accustomed to the game. If you want to continue after reaching zero, simply re-launch the game in Practice mode and another $1,000 in play money will become available.


How to Play Slots Online for Real Money

With the Practice mode available for all of our slots, you’ll quickly realize which games you like best, and when you do, you can switch over to Real Play mode in order to start winning real money. To do this, you’ll have to make sure that you have sufficient funds in your account; if you need to make a deposit, be sure to check out our promotions page to see if there’s any way to get some extra cash through a match bonus promotion.

With a bankroll loaded, select any slot game that you want to play and hit the “Real Play” option. Alternatively, if you’re in the middle of playing a slot game in Practice mode, you can go to the menu and find the button that instantly switches you over to the real money version. For most games, the button is “Play for Real,” although there is some variance from game to game.

Once you’re in Real Money mode, you can start spinning with the confidence of knowing that any payout triggered at the reels will be instantly added to your bankroll. Watch it go up and down as you stake money and win payouts—it’s quite the rush.


How to Play Table Games Online for Real Money

Just like with our slots, all of our table games can be played for real money payouts once you have an account set up and funds deposited. You’ll need to first log in to your account and then you can pick the table game that you want to play, at which point, two options will appear on the screen: Practice and Real Play. Go for Real Play when you want to stake real money and win real payouts.

If you’re already playing what you want under the free trial, you don’t need to exit and re-launch in order to switch to Real Play. Instead, go to the game menu, and there will be a button called “Play for Real” that will switch you over automatically. Once you’re in “Real” mode, all of the payouts you win are added to your bankroll in real time.

Online casinos can’t be beat when it comes to offering beginners a comfortable learning environment. With Practice mode available for every game, you can play any game on the site completely free with no strings attached. Learn how to play complicated table games at your own pace without having an impatient crowd waiting on you, or simply get a feel for how a certain slot compares to another; you can explore all you want without having to invest even a penny from your bankroll. And once you feel like you’ve got a good handle on a game and can potentially win some cash, switch over to Real Play mode to start earning real money payouts. Playing casino games online for real cash is much simpler than you might think.
