The new year is upon us and with it comes a time to reflect on our lives and what we could be doing better in 2018. We know, New Year's resolutions can sometimes seem a little depressing, but instead of focusing on losing the numerous extra pounds you've piled on over the festive period by lavishly applying brandy butter to everything in sight, why not consider how you can change your gaming habits for the better?
As mobile depositors, there are certain things you can do to make sure you're getting the very best out of GoWin casino and these are definitely worth considering this new year. Mobile depositing options such as Boku don't look to be falling out of favour any time soon, and so it's more important than ever before to be certain you're getting the best casino experience possible when you use these types of payment methods. So without further ado, here's our top 5 mobile depositing new year's resolutions that we think you should make!
Protect Your Phone
Safety should always be one of your biggest concerns when gaming online, and this is even more important if you're a pay by phone user. Of course, just by choosing to deposit via Boku, you've already make some savvy choices as the payment method is one of the most secure around, but what more could you be doing to protect yourself in 2018?
First of all, if you haven't already, you should definitely make it a resolution to protect your phone. This stops your phone, and casino account, from being vulnerable to thieves as it ensures you're still safe even if your handset goes missing. There are many different ways to protect your phone, but it all starts with making sure you log out of your casino account once you've finished gaming.
This prevents other people from spending your balance, whether that's an unsavoury character or an innocent party, such as a child. You should also always make sure your phone is locked with a PIN code, password or some type of biometric safety device such as Apple's Touch ID. This stops any one from accessing your phone and any personal details you may have saved on it.
Last but not least, 2018 should probably be the year you consider getting mobile phone insurance. We know, you've been putting it off for ages, but with new smartphones costing close to £1,000 it can be a bitter pill to swallow if you're phone goes missing.
Mobile insurance will not only cover your device itself, but will often also cover any unauthorized payments and phone calls made. This means that if a thief does get their hands on your handset, even if they rack up a huge Boku bill, you may be able to be reimbursed.
Set A Budget
Budgeting better is a common new year's resolution, and whilst many consider how they can cut down on spending in their day to day life, for mobile gamblers re-evaluating your casino bankroll can often be the key to saving money.
Many online gamers don't actually keep track of how much their spending each time they play at the casino, and small but frequent deposits can quickly rack up.
Of course, some players may have no need to budget and can play away to their heart's content, but did you know budgeting can also make you a better gamer? Budgeting your casino funds not only keeps you out of financial trouble and reduces stress, but it also forces you to be more strategic with the types of games you play and the wagers you make. Considering things such as RTP and volatility is very important when you're playing on a budget, and this can make you a more astute player.
Try Out New Games
If you played at GoWin in 2017, or read this very blog from time to time, you may already be aware of the fact that we add new games to our roster every single week. Moreover, all of our games are available on mobile too, meaning they're perfect for phone bill depositors who want to stick to using just one device. Our ever-expanding games collection also means that GoWin is the perfect place to play at if you want to keep our fourth new year's resolution, trying out new games.
Every single online gamer will have their own favourite slots or table games, however as the saying goes, variety is the spice of life, so why not give something different a go in 2018? If you're usually a slot player you could try out video casino classic such as Blackjack or Roulette, or if you usually enjoy NetEnt titles then why not try out new slots by more indie developers like Elk Studios and Core Gaming.
Don't Miss A Single Promotion
One of the best things about being a GoWin casino member is that there's always multiple active promotions which mean that you can get a little more bang for your buck every time you play. However, as we change our promotions and bonuses quite often, we do understand it can sometimes be a little difficult to keep up with everything that's up for grabs. Luckily, however, in 2018 we want all our players to enjoy the best possible casino experience they can, and that's why we're committed to making sure you'll never miss a promotion again.
One of the easiest ways to keep on top of our promotions is to sign up to our mailing list. This way, we can send every single deal and bonus we're offering straight to your inbox so you know what's available before even visiting the casino. That being said, we do also know that many people like to reserve their email inboxes for only the bare essentials so that they're not inundated with hundreds of messages every day.
That's why you can also visit our promotions page for up to date information about what's on offer that week. Bookmark the page, add it to your favourites, make it your homepage – do whatever you need to do, but make sure you don't miss a single promotion in 2018!
Last but by no means least, remember to enjoy yourself! A lot of new year's resolutions are based around mental well being and making this year happier than the last, and there's no reason why that shouldn't apply to your online gaming sessions too.
Visiting the casino should always be an enjoyable experience, but if you find it's causing you more grief than glee, then it might be time to take a break for a while or to question why it's no longer a fun experience.
