What’s Trending Ranks The Five Safest Australian Online Casinos

The safety factor at online casinos is an absolute priority – more important than rewards and entertainment. We know that before Australian players put their first dollar down at an online casino, it’s important for them to know that the site they’ve chosen is safe and secure. Safety means more than just a half-hearted announcement that the site takes vague steps to ensure your security. It means putting their money where their mouth is by taking all the necessary steps: Licensing, regulation, the last word in internet security technology. The What’s Trending team went on a mission to find the five safest Australian online casinos. We looked at online casinos that offer games for real money and where players know that their financial and private information is kept secure at all times. We looked at things such as regulation and licensing, because it’s important that a site has accountability to an external entity. Real money online casinos like those found at AustralianCasinoClub.com, all have offshore licenses. These are the five Australian online casinos that made the best impression on our team, in no particular order. Woo Casino This multi-vendor site makes a great impression from the get-go. It has an SSL secured gaming environment, excellent customer support, a self-exclusion policy and carries an off-shore license. In other areas, Woo Casino also wows.  We love the fact that you can play games by 23 different vendors, and you have a fantastic range of options to choose from.

You can claim 25 free spins before you make your first deposit, followed up by a generous 100% match bonus up to $300 + 200 free spins.  Woo-hoo! Ozwin Casino How can Australian players even resist the title of this online casino? This is a licensed online casino that’s powered by the iconic Real Time Gaming software group. You know then, that the site is backed by one of the best operators in the business. Ozwin’s support team is prompt and professional and can be reached via live chat, among other channels. You’ll find everything to make your online gaming session enjoyable, starting with hundreds of RTG games, such as the Real Series of Slots with their random progressive jackpots.  There is a good selection of bonus offers, including cashbacks of up to 50%, loyalty rewards and more.

PlayAmo Casino Since 2016, PlayAmo Casino has proven itself to be a safe and highly entertaining online casino platform. Australian’s flock to this site, not only because it offers one of the biggest selections of games and pokies for local players, but also because it makes security a priority.

BitStarz Casino Over 40 game providers believe in this licensed platform, and so there is no reason that you shouldn’t too!  We counted over 400 pokies at this site, which boasts a fantastic track record in the Australian and global online casino world. BitStarz Casino takes all the necessary steps (and then some) to ensure absolute security when it comes to your financial and privacy details. Live chat is available 24/7, or they can be reached through social media. While AUD are accepted, BitStarz’s flagship currency for deposit and withdrawal is Bitcoin.

NASDAQ NOSEDIVES: Can You Handle THE HEAT?

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. We warned all throughout the MONTH of AUGUST that markets just don’t accept the REALITY of VALUATIONS anymore and one week afterward, the S&P 500 and NASDAQ peaked and have since entered a correction (NASDAQ for now). Historically, as we explained, September is the market’s WORST MONTH, but this is getting even more SCREWED UP since Europe is considering a second quarantine period while elections in the U.S., which are the BIGGEST UNKNOWN, are rapidly approaching. Listen closely: Americans are so programmed by propaganda ON BOTH ENDS of the spectrum that the questions asked to everyday citizens reflect the SERIOUS NUMBNESS of the average voter: Courtesy: Zerohedge.com As you can see, the RACE IS TIGHT and the stakes are high! Yesterday, I watched the amazing documentary “The Social Dilemma,” which proves beyond any shadow of a doubt what the business model incentives of social media giants are, and it will be them that DECIDE THE OUTCOME of this presidential run come November. Between now and then, here’s what could HELP TRUMP, and below that is what could help BIDEN: Vaccine news – the cure will obviously be positive for Donald Trump, who will RIDE THE COATTAILS, taking credit for the record-fast approval process. Quarantines and school closures – I have no doubt that Democratic states are going to MAKE LIFE a living hell for residents because they must show Trump’s inadequacy with containing the pandemic. Debates – obviously, the more we allow these two TO CONFRONT each other, the more Trump has a chance to shine. Social unrest – if chaos returns, police defunding claims will bring voters to Trump, who is against it. Police brutality, on the other hand, indirectly helps Biden. Courtesy: Zerohedge.com For now, markets are still IN SHOCK that Trump’s approval ratings aren’t what they were pre-COVID-19. In January, no one predicted a close race, so I believe that if Biden’s chances are real, it could be AN INITIAL re-rating of equities downwards due to the high probability of higher corporate taxes. So, when looking at this -12% correction in the NASDAQ, don’t assume it has anything to do with the presidency because it doesn’t. Prices of equities are TOO HIGH and it’s dawning on institutional investors that they can invest in the recovery by going LONG the beaten-down industries, thus leaving the “bubble territory” to the retail public to MESS WITH. Now, after the dynamite has exploded, we believe institutions will use stink bids and get back into tech. We sure are exploring the matter using THIS new watch list. After already being out of the woods, the SECOND-WAVE mentality that is taking over is depressing and I expect many controversies in the COMING MONTHS. Lastly, we’re working on a BIG ALERT that you don’t want to miss, so stay focused on what’s coming. President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve! He wants zero rates and QE4! You must prepare for the financial reset We are running out of time Download the Ultimate Reset Guide Now!

BRUISED AND BATTERED: Will Stocks Fall ANOTHER -20%?

This article was contributed by Tom Beck of Portfolio Wealth Global. It’s been a WILD RIDE since the March lows; economies have opened-up, newcomers have entered stocks, central banks have bought BILLIONS OF DOLLARS in assets every single hour since March and markets have SOARED BACK! Literally, it’s been one heck of a move and we’ve participated in the fun, but we have to remember that it was A PARTY, not something that could last more than a short while. I call it a party since it looks like investors came to HAVE A GOOD TIME, not to own businesses. They’ve been using options, which WORK WELL in raging bull markets but are bad ideas the rest of the time (88% of options expire worthless). Courtesy: Zerohedge.com When EVERYONE is this bullish and you’ve made short-term bets, you ought to consider booking gains. I’m not talking about long-term portfolio holdings, which you plan on owning for decades. Central banks now own $25tn in assets; that’s a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT of equities and it puts a floor on prices, since they’re not quick to sell. Markets have changed. Capitalism has changed and you MUST change with them. I was watching the Formula 1 qualifying session yesterday and when these machines go 300KPH on the straight, then brake hard and go from eighth gear to second gear, inside the cockpit the G-FORCES applied on the body are 3-5 times one’s body weight. But as soon as the driver takes the corner, he IMMEDIATELY ACCELERATES again and goes on to the next piece of road. That’s how the markets are behaving; it’s a bull market, but since it’s going SO FAST, when the brakes are applied, it SEEMS FURIOUS, but there’s acceleration on the other side of it. Bonds are the real bubble, not stocks, generally speaking. Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors My point is that there are STILL many opportunities left in the market; so many companies are trading WELL BELOW their fair value, if their industries return to full activity, without Covid-19 restrictions. From what we’re hearing about gold, MORE AND MORE wealthy individuals are realizing they just NEED SOME; it’s beginning to go mainstream and I love it. Citigroup came out and raised their target to $2,500/ounce, so I think that we’re IN A GOOD SPOT! There’s $6tn in CASH out there in Money Market Accounts and in private hands. This is a world that is driven by EXCESSIVE LIQUIDITY and that isn’t changing. Consumer savings is still 17%, which is DOUBLE what it was in February, so there’s pent-up demand and both auto sales and real estate starts have been SUPRISINGLY-STRONG, so we see further recovery in the months to come. Central banks have raised the risk, IRONICALLY SPEAKING, for both high inflation and deadly deflation. Because they REFUSE TO ALLOW any cycle to play out, they’ve created artificial conditions, which is the reason it’s so confusing to see some market veterans POUNDING THE TABLE that a bear market is coming, while others believes stocks are attractive. These artificial conditions create wealth and income gaps, giant debt overhangs and social unrest. Gold, TRIED AND TRUE, is the antidote.
