There’s plenty of reasons that more than two-thirds of Internet users are choosing Chrome as their web browser. It’s fast, it’s available on the go, and its syncing features are awesome. But you might know that Chrome itself can actually be a great resource for when you’re playing at online casinos. So, we’ve put together a list of 9 of our favorite gaming tools for Chrome. Check them out!
Let’s be real: sometimes we just don’t want people to know we’re playing online. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with gambling. (If we thought that, we wouldn’t be here!) But if you’ve got uptight in-laws visiting or curious kids to worry about, you might not want to get caught.
That’s where PanicButton comes in. This free tool lets you hide all your tabs with just a single button. When you’re all alone again, you can just click the button to go right where you left off. It’s simple, works right off the bat, and can save you from some awkward conversations.
2) Awesome New Tab Page
Chrome’s new tab page is fine and all, but Awesome New Tab Page takes it to a whole other level. This extension gives you a fully customizable canvas to work with every time you open up a new tab. Add your own shortcuts, plop in all sorts of widgets, and arrange it to fit your needs. It’s a great way to get easy access to all your favorite online casinos and resources.
3) Awesome Screenshot
Ever hit a big win but couldn’t figure out how to memorialize it? That’s not a problem with the Awesome Screenshot extension. Download it to your Chrome browser, and the next time you get that perfect spin, capture it instantly with just a click. The app even lets you add annotations and blur out personal information.
We’re creatures of habit. Even when we’re hoping for a crazy jackpot, we all seem to have our own patterns for doing it. So if you’re playing at multiple casinos, Categorizer is worth looking into. This app sorts your favorite sites based on when you like to visit them. It’s especially useful if you don’t want to forget a certain casino’s weekly bonuses.
5) Email This Page
When you find something cool on the web, you might want to share it with friends, family, or colleagues. The fastest way to do that? Email This Page. This Chrome extension lets you instantly send a page link to anyone through your Gmail or your preferred email client. It’s especially useful if you’ve got gambling friends that appreciate hearing about the latest news or juicy promos.
6) LastPass: Free Password Manager
Online casinos do a lot to protect you, but nothing can really keep you safe if you don’t have good password habits. That’s where LastPass comes in handy. This free password manager lets you automatically create passwords that no one will ever be able to guess for each casino you visit. The only password you have to remember is the one you use for the extension!
Ever found a good article but were too busy to read it? Been there, done that. And if you’re like me, you probably can’t find it again when you do have the time. This is where Pocket is a life-saver. Just add articles, reviews, and other cool pages to your Pocket and read them at any time. You can even sync it with your mobile to catch up on your reading on the go.
8) Cool Clock
We’re big on setting limits at AskGamblers. It’s a key part of responsible gambling. But we know that it’s easy to get carried away and lose track of the time. Cool Clock is a good way you can avoid this. This Chrome extension can be used to make little reminders at certain times. You can even set it to make pop-ups. Never forget to cook dinner again!
9) Lazarus: Form Recovery
No one likes filling out forms, especially when you’re trying out a new online casino and just want to get to the fun. But if you get an error after spending 5 minutes filling out the registration form, you probably don’t want to type all that over again.
One of the best solutions to this problem is Lazarus: Form Recovery. It’s a simple but effective Chrome extension that temporarily saves what you type just in case something goes wrong. Goodbye frustration!
