When you first open an online casino account you will go through a registration process which will ask you several questions such as name, address and age etc, but you will also be requested to stipulate the base currency on which you want your casino account to be set.
Some players like to pick a different currency than their home currency as this, based on currency exchange rates, can give them psychologically a bigger starting bankroll. For example UK players may like to play in US Dollars as instead of getting 100 credits in the casino when they deposit 100 Pound they will get 150 Dollars (or whatever the UK Pound to US Dollar exchange rate is at the time of their deposit.
However not all online casinos allow you to play in a currency that is not your home currency, so if you are adamant you wish to play in a currency other than your own it is vitally important that you get full written confirmation that you are indeed allowed to do this from the casino at which you are intending to play.
The reason for this is that some online casinos will have written in their terms and conditions that if you do not play in your home currency then you could have any bonuses, or even worse any winnings voided when you come to making a withdrawal, so the best rule of thumb is to stick to your own currency, or if this is not available then use the currency the casino requires you to play in as mentioned in their terms and conditions.Multi Currency Slot Machines
