Why Fortune Palace?

Your guide to playing and winning at online casinos

Learn, Practice, Play

Fortune Palace is a straightforward introduction to internet gambling, for both absolute beginners and experienced gamblers, designed around the core principles of learning how to play, practicing for free, then playing for real.

Learn the rules, betting options and the odds against winning. Every game has its own subtleties and it's important that you understand the specifics of each game (and game variant) before you think about playing with real money. Recognising the good and bad bets is the quickest way to devise (or understand) a winning strategy that suits your risk profile.

Practice a game and its strategy for free. This is one of the most important aspects for new players. No-one wants to waste hundreds of pounds becoming familiar with a new game. We encourage players to try out games and strategies on our instant, no download, no deposit games. You'll get enough free credits to play for hours, until you're 100% confident.

Play for real. Signing up at an online casino should be an exciting time. Online gambling is all about taking risks, but you don't want to take uneccessary chances by playing at a casino that will cheat you out of your winnings, or not allow you to win at all! We reduce the risks by ensuring that all of our recommended casinos are secure, licensed and verified.

Fortune Palace - at-a-glance

The COMPLETE gambling guide, for beginners, leisure gamblers and high-stakes pros


When the fun stops, stop

Online gambling can be a very enjoyable hobby. When it's viewed as a leisure pursuit, rather than a way to get rich quick, then it's completely harmless.

These days, many people enjoy a flutter online, spending a small portion of their leisure funds on their chosen gambling channel, whether that's poker, football or horse racing. For most, it's little more than an innocent pastime.

But for some people, gambling can become an addiction which then has serious consequences. When money earmarked for family welfare is wasted on gambling then it becomes dangerous, even immoral.

Fortunately, there is lots of help at hand. If you feel that you've lost your enjoyment of gambling, or that's it's taking over your life, we strongly recommend that you seek help from one of the organisations listed here.

If not for your sake, then for your friends and family.
