HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol using Secure Sockets Layer) encrypts so it can be sent over the Internet more safely. When you enter a URL (a Web address) into a browser, the address will generally begin with either HTTP or HTTPS (as in https://www.paypal.ca). Another indication HTTPS is in use is the presence of a padlock icon on the page.
Most of the reputed and well known online casinos or sites like Paypal are safe on such browsers as they have SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) which is a secure communications protocol used by browsers, websites, and applications to protect information sent over the Internet. SSL protocol uses encryption and authentication technologies to ensure that only the intended parties can access the information.

The EV certificate is an improvement over standard SSL certificates because it requires corporations to pass extensive audits and certification processes to prove they own their site domains.
Therefore it is always recommended to use only SSL encrypted trusted online casino to play slots or other games. Also if using PayPal for any online transaction it is safe and secure and can be used without any worry.
