Many people dream of hitting a big jackpot while playing online casino games, but frankly, very few of us will ever experience the excitement and satisfaction of winning that million dollar cash prize. Although the progressive jackpots found in online casinos, or in a network of casinos, pay out in the end - the chances of winning such a jackpot are still very slim. The question remains, though, are there any other ways to get paid to play casino games - that is, to make steady profits in the long run when playing at online casinos?

Well, a mathematician would certainly say no - the odds given will always favor the house (also known as the casino). Of course, this is ancient knowledge and a true fact if you were to play with a limited bankroll at any casino game or card table at a land-based casino for an unlimited amount of time. But a professional gambler who primarily plays online may think differently - and actually claim that it is very possible to earn a living or at least a nice extra income by playing casino games online.

So how is this even possible? Well, a solid approach of a professional online gambler is to combine audio games and money management with the huge deposits and reload bonuses that the casinos provide. In fact, the overall odds of winning can even be considered to turn in favor of the player when such a strategy is used correctly! The main purpose of this game method is to get as many free games as possible - not by hoping to get bigger winnings - although this can of course also occur.

To be successful with this strategy, the professional player will sign up to many trusted online casinos and use their first initial deposit bonus - most often to the maximum possible deposit to claim the highest number of free bonus money available at each casino. For example, if the casino requires a deposit of $ 500 to claim a maximum of $ 1500 in free bonus money, the professional player will make a deposit of $ 500 rather than receive $ 50 for an initial deposit of, for example, $ 25.

Next, the player chooses the casino game that has the lowest house edge in terms of odds available at the casino to clear the bonus money for withdrawals. Usually the casino game with the lowest house edge at any casino is Blackjack. By playing low-stakes blackjack using the mathematically correct method of playing the game, (known as the "perfect strategy" in Blackjack that tells the player when to hit or stand, etc.), the player may be able to remove the bonus by to play many hands rather than high stakes.

This is just one example to illustrate the method of playing and clearing the deposit bonus. Some online casinos may not even be able to clear the bonus when you play Blackjack, for example. Needless to say, the professional player does, of course, do a lot of research at that online casino before depositing and playing. The professional player will analyze and calculate exactly what is required to clear the bonus - and the potential of earning a total profit at that casino.

One might think that the method above is a "hit and run" strategy that requires a constant stream of new available online casinos to sign up, but it actually isn't. Once the player clears a bonus at an online casino, he or she simply waits for an attractive reload bonus offer or other special offer before playing at that casino again. In the meantime, the player turns to other online casinos to practice exactly the same strategy. More often than not, such players will be considered valuable to the casinos as their initial or subsequent deposits were quite high - but remember - these deposits were all made with the aim of claiming the highest bonus money possible. This also has the positive effect that the player can be considered a VIP or a high-roller of the casino - and thus more attractive offers.

The strategy and money method described above is used by thousands of professional players around the world who are somehow paid to play casino games. However, it must be remembered that it requires a lot of skill and knowledge about the various casino games and their odds, an understanding of how deposit bonus offers are designed, and a very non-emotional attitude to losing gaming sessions.
