In the warmer weather dogs love to cool off in the Adriatic Sea. But how do you walk them, or rather let them swim, if you don’t want to get wet yourself? This lady from the town of Trpanj on the Pelješac peninsula has the perfect answer!

This photo, that was published on the popular Facebook page “Daily Dose of an Average Dalmatian,” soon went viral and attracted hundreds of likes and comments. Some beaches and coastal areas of Croatia don’t allow dogs, and certainly not dogs off the leash. This lady found a solution, walking the dog in the Adriatic on a leash whilst she remained dry on land.

The luxury of the Dubrovnik River, the beauty of Korčula in the middle of the city and the experience of waking up in the Slano Valley – the options are many and varied and each has its own special charm. Incredible beauty, full high-quality service and superb additional facilities, with constant new investments, all make the ACI marina chain a regional leader in nautical tourism.

Sometimes unimaginable challenges, like over the past two years, gave birth to new ideas and new projects and persistent working in the tourist sector. We are proud to emphasize the role of the largest chain of marinas on the Mediterranean, ACI d.d., as the one who not only survived during the greatest crisis, but also remained a regional leader and protected the entire nautical community, without limitations and restrictions. The focus on the future is one of ACI's strongest drives. Namely, we have already realized it during the past year, with our strategic investments in the excellence of infrastructure and services, expanding the business portfolio worth 44 million Kuna.

Some of the most beautiful marinas in the world are located along the Adriatic coast, and sailors just love it, the three southernmost gems in the crown of ACI – ACI marina Dubrovnik, ACI marina Korčula and ACI marina "Veljko Barbieri" in Slano, in which as much as 95 million Kuna has been invested in the last five years. The extraordinary beauty of nature and some of the most special islands and cities on the Mediterranean provides sailors with an unforgettable visit and, almost as a rule, a plan for their next arrival as soon as possible.

ACI marina Dubrovnik

One of the most luxurious and award-winning ACI marinas is the one in Dubrovnik, which is not surprising considering the importance of Dubrovnik for Croatian tourism, and the Dubrovnik River, as a protected natural landscape, with historical links and incredible beauty, it has been the first choice of numerous sailors from all over the world for years. After comprehensive reconstruction works, worth as much as 35 million Kuna, Dubrovnik welcomed guests in a new, refreshed edition at the beginning of this season. A 232.3-metre new coastal line was built, a wall that allows the reception of up to five metres longer vessels than before, the whole infrastructure of the entire marina was invested into, and in the plans are the construction of the largest service zone in this part of the Adriatic.

In addition to the existing golf and tennis courts, two top quality restaurants, an outdoor swimming pool and facilities for children are in place. And what everyone is eagerly awaiting - the reconstruction of the Gothic-Renaissance summer beauty in Dubrovnik, the summer house Sorkočević. This huge undertaking will turn Dubrovnik's ACI marina into one of the most special jewels in the Mediterranean. Results this season and this year have been very encouraging, and the marina is already up to the pre-pandemic levels.

ACI marina Korčula

Boaters love Korčula and the beautiful ACI marina, which is in its own right rivals Dubrovnik, right next to the old town itself, the core of the City of Korčula, offering sailors everything that is available. And the marina has already received recognition as the best island marina. And with the 25 million Kuna reconstruction of a breakwater it is in an even better position to receive guests. It's a breakwater lined with stone, which is the lifeblood of the city and has also aesthetically fitted into its surroundings. The plan of this small, boutique marina in the city centre, with 42 luxury accommodation units with four stars, a square, a bus interchange and a taxi stand, next to garages with more than 300 parking spaces will make this island beauty to shine in full glory.

ACI marina Slano

The majority of sailors who set off to southern Dalmatia will not miss the newest link in the largest chain of marinas in the Mediterranean, ACI marina Slano. Marina Veljko Barbieri is celebrating its sixth birthday in Slano, and the name which it bears, the name of the originator of the idea of founding the ACI marina chain. Perhaps one of the most beautiful marinas in the far south of Croatia, Slano has always been a shelter for all ships.

In an ideal position and near the fairy-tale Elaphite Islands, Dubrovnik and the southernmost Croatian seas, it easily charms local and international tourists who return to it, and because of its location at an important nautical junction is one of the most popular choices for mooring, rest and refreshment among many sailors. Tesla charging stations for e-cars, nautical equipment stores, charter companies, a perfect gastronomy spot - the Perast restaurant known to foodies for its exclusively homemade food from local producers and its own olive oil, rent-a-car and transfers, technical service of vessels, are just a few options of this trump card in the ACI Marina group.

Iconic, the benchmark, unmissable, the superlatives and adjectives to describe Nautika Restaurant are numerous. One thing is for sure, Nautika is much more than just a restaurant, it is an experience.

Widely considered as the leading restaurant in the wider Dubrovnik region as can be seen from the more than impressive guest list. From Pep Guardiola, Sir Roger Moore, Eva Longoria and Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn, the list not only goes on and on but includes royalty, rock stars and actors.

Nautika Restaurant lies on the very edge of the sea at Pile, alongside the western entrance to Dubrovnik's Old City, the location is unique and lends itself to the harmony of the cuisine, like I said it is an experience.

So, as I have written on many occasions I much prefer a restaurant that has a short menu. So much more time and creativity is put into a short menu, and the head chef at Nautika clearly has been doing lots of creative work. The service is the best and most professional in Dubrovnik, it seems that they have a whole army of waiters and serving staff. Its white-glove all the way and at its best. They somehow just make you feel extra special.

So what to choose, there is a tasting menu, both five and seven courses, if you can't decide. I, as I often do, asked the waiter for his advice. To say that he was knowledgeable would be a massive understatement. "I would suggest a main course of Veal Fillet and Dubrovnik Malvasija Sauce, so therefore you could probably plump for the Beef Charolais Carpaccio as a starter," he smiled.

He actually went through the whole list of ingredients and how each dish was prepared when he brought the meals to my table. Beef Charolais Carpaccio, with a dijon sauce, herbs, celery, I learned and it was absolutely magnificent.

And in the surroundings of the illuminated Old City walls and the Adriatic Sea on my horizon, it was a real high-end Dubrovnik experience. With an in-house sommelier to walk you through the wine list the service is just superb.

The main course, Veal Fillet and Dubrovnik Malvasija Sauce with potato gratin with truffle essence, pea mousse with mint, glazed carrots, now if I thought the starter was great the main course was even better. And yes, the waiter was right the two courses were the perfect match.

I just love this combination of locally sourced ingredients along with a creative and somewhat funky menu. It seems to respect the history and culture of Dubrovnik and at the same time show a modern future. Well done to the Nautika team.

I still can't quite find the right adjective to describe the restaurant, all I do know is that you absolutely must visit it, and maybe you'll find the best word to describe it.

The most popular travel website in the world, Tripadvisor, has recently published lists in its traditional "Traveller's Choice 2022 Best of the Best", and Dubrovnik has found itself in the top five!

The lists are created by the users themselves with their ratings throughout the year, and are awarded in several categories, such as "best destinations for food lovers", "best places for active vacations", "best cities"... There is also a "trending" category destinations", which would mean destinations that are currently popular, that are talked about and that are getting better ratings among tourists. And being selected by users of the travel website is clearly a big deal, as tourists to each destination have given independent views and ratings.

And on the top “trending” destinations list for this year are two Croatian destinations, Split and Dubrovnik. The Dalmatian city of Split was ranked in 13th position, whilst Dubrovnik came in at a very respectable 5th position. Both Croatian destinations were described as places with a rich history, charming architecture and beautiful beaches. On the top of the list of trending destinations was the Spanish island of Mallorca in the Balearic Islands.

TRENDING DESTINATIONS FOR 2022 ACCORDING TO TRIPADVISOR

1. Mallorca, Spain

2. Cairo, Egypt

3. Rhodes, Greece

4. Tulum, Mexico

5. Dubrovnik, Croatia

6. Ibiza, Spain

In our minds, summer is mostly reserved for going to the sea and enjoying the sun, but everyone's favourite season can be much more than that. Gorski kotar, this green oasis of Croatia, is beautiful in the winter, but what it has to offer in the warmer part of the year we have yet to find out. How rich and full of life Croatia is, and how little we are aware of the blessings we have been gifted with.

And Gorski kotar is a region with so much to offer, a region for all season. Located halfway between Zagreb and Rijeka this magical region is one of the greenest parts of the whole country. A place where nature and the local population are in perfect harmony. And where the rich history is visible in the numerous castles all over the region.

So let's pick out some highlights from the wondrous Gorski kotar

Bear watching

Yes, bear watching! One such resident who has always ruled the forests of Gorski kotar are bears. Through the "Bear watching" program, there is a great chance that you will meet a bear in its natural habitat face to face. And the organizers of this great idea claim that bears appear in almost 95 percent of cases, meaning you have a really good chance to see a bear at close quarters. "Bear watching" is a fantastic experience, an encounter with nature and an opportunity to remind ourselves that humans are just one link in a chain that functions just fine without us.

Gorski kotar gastronomy

Like the majority of regions across the country Gorski kotar has its own specialties. Hunter's goulash, dumplings, blueberry pie, homemade cheese, sausages, bear leek pesto, homemade bread, that's just the tip of the iceberg. All dishes resemble the old cuisine of the people in this region. Satisfying and heavy food is served in order to survive the harsh conditions that are common here in winter. People needed to work a lot, but they also ate well.

A mystical town in the heart of Gorski kotar

Čabar is truly a gem of a small town. Primarily, because of its beautiful nature and forests, and rich history, but also the people who are extremely kind and ready to welcome you. A visit to the Interpretation Centre "The Routes of the Frankopans" reminds you of the rich history and legacy of the famous families who lived in this area. Every now and then, they find new documents in the archives, records and pictures that have been sitting under layers of dust for years until someone discovered their value.

Klanac swimming area

Surprises in Gorski kotar never end, and with a visit to Vrbovsko, you'll discover another one, the Klanac swimming area. Why do we only crowd the beaches every summer when here we can find peace and refreshment and enjoy nature? And here, the perfect artist, that nature is, really did its best. In addition to swimming in the beautiful and clean water, you can ride kayaks, enjoy organized rafting, sunbathe, eat in nearby restaurants, and simply enjoy yourself. The Klanac swimming area can be a great detour or even the main destination.

OK, I am impressed with GoCablecar. What? What's that? I can hear you ask. So the Dubrovnik Cable Car, one of the most popular tourist attractions (for good reason) in the south of Croatia has recently gone step further with their offer by creating a special app. You might think that in this modern, technological world that everything in Dubrovnik, you would be wrong. In fact, the Dubrovnik Cable car is one of the first. But, as the English say, the proof is in the pudding, so I downloaded the app to check it out.

 

You can search through either the App Store or Google Play, or simply scan the QR code that you see here. I was greeted by a rather funky and easy to use app that had all the info at the swipe of my finger. I even learnt a few things about the cable car. I never knew that the average speed was 6.5 metres per second. I am rather a nerd and love those engineering facts. Such as the track length that is 778 metres or that the height of the Upper Station was 405 metres.

 

Real-time status of cable car

 

With the app you can see ticket prices, see the status of the cable car, interesting facts, find things to do when you get to the top (and believe me there are plenty of options) and even find the location of the cable car which handily opens in Google Maps, along with directions. Really, really good, and I am not a great lover of apps normally. The blurb states that "The GoCableCar app allows you to receive real-time status updates from the Dubrovnik Cable Car and offers key information about the cable car and activities at and around the upper cable car station."

 

And yes, it is available for both Apple and Android. And the app will only act as a base that can be developed and added o in the future. I have a sneaky feeling that other similar apps will pop up like mushrooms after the rain following in the footsteps of this cable car one. But imitation is the highest form of flattery, so hats off to the cable car team. And yes, it is still download on my smart phone. What are you waiting for?

We are underway. The walk has started. Toto, our dog, is leading the way on the next 1,100 km, as we walk the South West Coastal Path. And something occurred to us on the very first day, could Toto be making Croatian history? Is he the first ever Croatian sheepdog to walk the path?

 

We have met literally hundreds of dogs on the first few days of our walk, this is truly a dog-friendly country in every sense of the word. And of the many walkers we’ve met along the way the majority have had their four-legged friend with them. And Toto has been drawing attention. “Really, I didn’t know Croatia had sheepdogs,” is the normal response we get as our super friendly dog jumps into the arms of another stranger.

 

And Toto is very much the opening into our “Where are you from and what are you doing the walk for” questions. Firstly, there are many people walking, but very few, well exactly none so far, who are walking the whole route. When we explain that we’ll be hiking for the next two months (at least) we are usually met with raised eye-brows and comments of “well done” when they realise why we are doing it. And then the Croatia question. The responses have been mixed to say the least. We’ve had everything from “I bet you hate Putin,” to “Oh, I went their on a stag night,” to “I heard that Dubrovnik is really expensive,” (in fact, we get that one quite a lot), to “I went on a cruise there once and it was really busy.”

 

One that really shocked us was a little surreal. We were in the middle of nowhere on our daily walk (a place where we often find ourselves) and one man stopped to talk to us. “Oh, yes Dubrovnik, I have heard that you guys go across the border into Bosnia to go shopping and eat in restaurants, to save money,” commented this total stranger. Weird. Surprisingly correct. But nevertheless, weird.

 

The walk is teaching us lessons the whole time. Lessons about ourselves mostly. We are so far out of our comfort zones that we’ve almost found a whole new zone. Drinking from streams, washing in lakes (yes, we are rather smelly), wild camping on mountain tops, walking along some of the most incredible coastlines we have ever seen, avoiding wild horses, cooking with a small gas fire, and pushing our bodies and legs to the extreme.

 

But all the time learning. Learning how important, and how stunning nature is. Learning that when you push your boundaries you find a whole new world. Learning that our day to day worries are really unimportant. Learning not to worry but to live. Has it been easy? No. Far from it.

 

On just the second day we, probably overconfidently, pushed too hard, much too hard. Imagine carrying a 15 kg rucksack and climbing from the Banje Beach to the top of Srđ, that sounds tough. We did that four times in our second day. We ended up wild camping on top of a mountain. “What’s that noise” said my wife in the darkness. “Don’t worry, it is only a couple of wild horses eating,” I answered. That noise. The grind of horse teeth ripping grass up was the one that followed us into a deep sleep.

 

We awoke early to see a spectacular mountain-top sunrise and the most manicured patch of grass that I have ever seen in my life. These are experiences that make you see the world in a different way.

 

Wi-Fi and mobile connections are limited, well non-existent, most of the time. When we do get some kind of connection we inform friends and family of where we are. But that’s about it.

 

We upload some photos onto the social media channel Travels With Toto 2022 every day, just to let everyone know that we are alive. And a huge thank you to everyone who has donated to our two humanitarian causes. The amount of people that we’ve met and have been generous is amazing. I have no idea what is happening in the world.

 

If it wasn’t for the flags and pictures and commemorations for the Queen everywhere I wouldn’t have known she had sadly passed away. We are in a media blackhole. Probably the best place to be.

 

Our long journey has just begun. We are still in the foothills of our mountain climb. But although it has just begun it is clearly a journey that will change us forever. Keep following us and keep sending your messages.

Even back in the UK, September was always one of my favourite months. Never quite ready to pack away the flip-flops and bring out the Winter boots, I’d be clinging on to the last rays of summer sunshine with all my might.

It was always a bit hit-and-miss though, to be honest, and the word “Autumnal” was creeping into our daily weather chats a little too often for my liking.

September in Croatia, however, it’s just perfect. 

The sea is warm, the evenings are cooler so you can sleep better, we enjoy the most stunning sunsets, and there’s a gentle, but profound, slowing down. Life is sweet.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine there is a name for this season -it’s called Late Summer, as the yearly calendar is divided into five seasons, not the four we typically think of in the West.

I learned this week there is a name for it in Croatia too, as well as other Old European cultures, and it’s called “Baba Ljeto” literally translated as "Grandma’s Summer".

Baba was also known as the Great Goddess, or Mother Earth who controlled the waters and the cold, ruling over Summer. She was the polar, but complementary, opposite to Father Sky, who controlled the sun and the heat, ruling over Summer.

We can see this polarity everywhere in nature, known as the “yin and yang” in the East -  it is simply two opposing forces creating balance, so it seems fitting that this is also the time of the Autumn Equinox.

What I love about nature is that it brings together so many schools of thought, belief systems, even religions, for it is just the science of life.

This week I am blessed to be enjoying these last days of summer in the Dubrovnik Riviera, with two polar opposite adventures, and it’s left me enchanted once more with this area.

Mid-week I am on a Cave and Beach adventure with Karuzo Boat Tours, and this feels like yoga to me.

The expanse of the ocean as we travel towards the Elaphite islands clears my mind of any worries, and reminds me of all the potential and possibilities in the world.

Snorkelling into the blue cave is like exploring the darkness in order to come back to the light.

As I challenge myself scrambling up the rocks to jump from a height, I am aware once more of the strength that lies within me, and how at the other side of fear, there is freedom.

Watching the sunset on the back of the boat cruising back towards Mlini, I feel the perfect rhythms of nature, and how every ending just marks a new beginning.

A couple of days later, I find myself retracing my steps back in the Konavle valley, to experience the delights of the Crvik winery.

It was a day of rather inclement weather, and I was a little grumpy as my phone had died, meaning an administrative headache, as I’ve not properly backed everything up. But I made the effort because there was a quote on the website which made me think I was going to enjoy this place.

Wine is the most beneficial of all drinks, the pleasantest medicine in the world, and of all dainties, the least cloying to the appetite”.

Ok, I’m in.

Why it has taken me over two years to find this place is a mystery to me.

I’m here now because I am creating new activities and experiences for my holidays to Croatia, and this one would come at the end of a trip to Pasjaca beach where we will do some yoga and wild swimming. 

“Yoga first, wine later”, I tell my guests.

So at the winery, I try the Malvasija, a firm Summer favourite of mine, and it’s one of the best I have tried.

But it’s the red wine, the Vilin Ples, which really captivates me. 

A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Plavac Mali, it’s just spot on for this time of year, my body says a resounding “yes!”. It’s name translates as "Dance Of The Fairy" -  the name is inspired by the work of Marin Drzic, a 16th Century Renaissance writer.

With the flavours of blueberry , dark chocolate, dry plum, and cedar still on my palate as I leave, there’s one word that springs to mind. It describes not just the wine, but how I feel about this region, this season, and all that nature provides for us.

The word is French: “Enchante”.

I’m in Croatia so I should say “Drago Mi Je” for “Nice To Meet You”, but it’s more than that. I’m enchanted.

And I can’t wait for the rest of the magic that this "Grandma’s Summer" has to offer.

Considering its size and little presence of buildings, unlike urbanistically (relatively speaking) more advanced environments, Lika has remained quite untouched and unsullied by human activity. It's not something that we claim, but rather something supported by studies, like the one proving the Gacka river to be one of the cleanest rivers in the world. Perhaps this is the reason why trout grows faster in this area than anywhere else in the world.

 

Gacka Honey Trail

 LIKA HONEY 700x400

The "Gacka Honey Trail" project came from the desire to give recognition to the hardworking beekeepers of this region for their work, effort and production. Several local beekeepers are involved in the project, and these trails will lead you to the sweetest products of one of the most important inhabitants of our planet – bees. At one family farm, there are beekeepers who went one step further, and as part of their standard offer, they also opened a house where you can enjoy the so-called apitherapy, which brings many benefits to those who have various respiratory problems. Your task is to just sit in a beautiful house, breathe in the air from the hive, and the hardworking bees will do the rest of the work for you. The already standardized offer includes, of course, high-quality honey, scientifically confirmed-unadulterated, naturally made and with an abundance of health. In addition to honey, there are also many interesting honey products. All the beekeepers involved in this project will be happy to show you the work process, introduce you to the magical world of bees, and offer something extremely beneficial to your health.

 

Gacka

 

One of the beekeepers told us that he is in love with his life in the Gacka river valley. And how could he not be, when the nature here is truly magical. In the valley of this clean river, you can enjoy kayaking, fishing, participating in a walking festival and many other activities. No matter which one you choose, and even if you just sit and gaze upon this masterpiece of nature, you won't regret it.

 

Zipline Watch out for the bear

LIKA ZIPLINE 700x400

And if you are eager for some crazy adventure, the "Watch out for the bear" zipline is the place to be. There you will experience a bird's eye view of what Lika is really like. They also organize climbing on a climbing wall, bicycle riding on hundreds of organized bike paths, camping and much more. We must warn you, emptying your mobile phone beforehand would be a wise thing to do because with these views of Lika you will for sure take hundreds of memorable photos.

 

Cheese factory Vedrine

 

Once you get a little hungry, we highly recommend filling up your stomach with a glass of fresh full-fat milk from Lika. If not milk, then definitely some of their famous dairy products. Cheese, "lička basa", yoghurts... whatever you can think of. There is a good chance that you will try some of the best dairy products in the world here. It's not humble to claim something like that, but there's no place for humility when it comes to Lika's dairy products. The cows that feed here eat exclusively grass without nutritional supplements and live in the idyll of the Lika's pastures and valleys. Be sure to visit one of their fantastic creameries.

 

Gastronomy of Lika

 

And finally, feast upon authentic delicacies of this region, which are still prepared here almost every day. Lika's potato halves are accompanied by "lička basa" and cured meats (homemade of course), trout in a hundred ways, greens, potato salads with Lika's potatoes famous for their good quality and delicious taste, strudels with local fruit and the list just goes on... Real feast with heavy food that will give you strength through memorable flavours and leave you with the urge to try it again.

Online casinos are no longer a novelty, but a legit type of gambling that is taking the market by the storm. In this new gaming jungle, full of vibrant slot machines, elegant table games, and funky scratch cards, there is another gaming genre that seems to be taking over. We are talking about live casinos, of course.

Despite their immense popularity, there is still a huge number of players wondering what these live casino games are, and how they work. And trust us when we say there is no better person to talk about it than Anna Rosak, an online gaming expert with great experience in the industry.

What is a Live Casino?

Perhaps the best way to begin this short lecture is by providing our readers with a simple definition. “Live casino is a category in online gaming that is based on live-streaming. Dealers, located in special, often luxurious, studios, lead the game as they would in brick-and-mortar casinos. Thanks to modern technologies, you get to place bets in real time, without any delays”, explains the casino expert, adding that live casinos are an essential part of real money casinos like N1 casino.

Plethora of Games

One of the main benefits of live casino gaming is the mere abundance the live content suppliers have to offer. According to Rosak, users get access to far more titles than in any land-based casino, as live casinos never face the issues that come with a lack of space. Live gaming operators can add as many titles as they like, as they are all stored not in retail venues, but on servers.

“Players can click the screen and play roulette, baccarat, blackjack or casino poker. If they want to zhuzh things up, they can easily choose gaming shows, a crossover genre that combines all the existing games and then some. There are also Asian games, like sic bo, or dragon tiger. The list just goes on and on”, says Anna.

Real-Life Experience

Another advantage of live casino gaming is that you get a real casino experience for a fraction of the price. All dealers in these games are true professionals, with years of experience, that might as well be working at Caesar’s or Bellagio.

The equipment they use is also real, and the same as equipment in land-based venues. It is the real dice they are tossing, and real cards they are dealing. The only type of equipment you won’t find at traditional casinos is the one related to gaming shows.

“Gaming shows equipment is often custom-made to fit the theme and distinctive feel of every game. When a certain provider has a game of this kind, it can’t be found anywhere else. They copyright the game making sure not a single part of it, or its equipment finds the way to other providers and casinos”, reveals Rosak.

Human Interaction

Staying at home and playing games can be fun, yet lonely. For this reason, live gaming studios will typically add some sort of chat or messenger system you can use to talk to other gamers, greet the dealer, celebrate your wins, and cry over your losses.

“Live chats add a social element to the entire session. If you were at a brick-and-mortar casino, you would chat with people at their table, cheer for them and comfort them when they lose. To prevent you from feeling lonely, live casinos integrate the live chat feature”, adds Anna.

Live chats, however, can seem like a mixed bag. Plenty of players use them as intended to and keep the conversation natural, friendly and polite. Unfortunately, there are also players who take advantage of live chat and use it as an exhaustion pipe for all their frustration. If you can, make sure to report any insulting comments that are against the guidelines.

Accessibility

In the end, Anna wanted to remind everyone of another great thing about live casino gaming - accessibility. Live casino brings a dash of Las Vegas and Macao in your living room, no matter how small or modest it might be. Unless you play at VIP tables, the cost per hand will be quite affordable, plus you will get to skip additional costs like transportation and lodging.

“Lets’ not forget, you can also play any time of day, even if you have only a minute to spare. Play roulette and brush your teeth. Commute to work and play blackjack while on the bus. Spice up your lunch with a few hands of game shows. The world is your oyster”, Anna is thrilled but doesn’t miss the opportunity to warn our readers: “Once you decide what online game to pick, always remember to keep your gaming safe and responsible, and always bet only what you can afford to lose. And good luck!”
