About Us: The World’s Leading Online Casino Guide

For over 20 years our team has watched the online casino industry grow and develop. During that time we’ve seen some great sites appear, and we’ve seen some appalling ones too.

But we haven’t kept those observations to ourselves. Since 1995 we’ve been helping players like you find the best online casino sites to play at. That means when you follow our advice you get better odds of winning and peace of mind knowing that the sites we list are all safe and secure.

As the world’s leading casino guide, we’ve also been featured on CNN and in GQ Magazine, Wired and Time.

We go further than every other casino review site too. We offer news, guides, advice, tips, strategy, blog posts, and even show you how to play casino games.

In fact, if you want to play in a casino, we provide just about everything you need (and then some).

Our review process

Our team of reviewers, testers, analysts, bonus hunters and security masterminds investigate every casino site, one by one. It's a painstaking business that takes time. Lots of time.

The team looks into everything that's important to casino players because that's what is important to us too. The first aspect we always look at is player privacy and security.

Once we know a site is reliable, we'll start looking into:


Security and background vetting

The first step in our investigation of every casino is always the same. We examine how reliable the site is by looking into the security measures it has in place, we check its licenses and we ensure its fully legal. We also delve deeper than any other review site by looking into each casino’s company records to see what country it operates from and who runs it.

  • Norton
  • SSL
  • Secure
  • Truste
  • eCogra

Make a deposit and interact with customer care

Quick and simple deposits are crucial for any site we recommend. To work out how good a site’s deposit process is we deposit our own cash into each casino. We do this using the payment methods that players use most often, like Visa, MasterCard, Neteller and more. We then contact the customer care team and test out their responses to a list of particularly exact issues and questions.


Try the games and withdraw money

We use the money in our casino account to play a variety of different games on the site. We rate their payouts, graphics, usability and of course, how entertaining they are. Once we’ve tried out the games, we move on to attempting to withdraw the money from our casino account. The quicker and easier the cash out process is, the higher score the casino gets.

Final Score

When a casino site picks up lots of positive points during the steps above, we calculate its overall rating and create an in-depth review based on what we found during the investigation process. Unlike other sites, we don’t just review a casino once. We check back in with each site at 3 month intervals to make sure it's still offering the same great experience.

The Story Of Casino.org

Hello World

It was a bright morning in 1995 and Oasis was blasting from the radio. At 11.34am, after a lot of pushing and hard work, we became the proud parents of a live website.

Casino.org came into this world and we knew things would never be the same again.

The Big Boom

The year 2000 came and went without the Y2K bug destroying the world, and we realized we needed more staff. The online gambling boom was well and truly here. We'd had thousands of visitors already, and not enough fingers to type our reviews, so we hired a team of 6 bright young things to dedicate their lives to reviewing casinos.

The King Of Casino Reviews

By 2005 Casino.org users had won a combined total of $15 million at the casinos we’d recommended. We wanted to share the best casinos with even more people though. That’s why we were so pleased when our users started sending their friends our way. Their friends started telling more friends about Casino.org and before we knew it, we were the number one destination online for casino reviews.

Casino.org Users Win Over $34 Million

Today more than 20,000 people use Casino.org every week to find their perfect casino. Our readers have banked more than $34 Million playing at online casinos, picked up exclusive bonus offers and been able to enjoy peace of mind knowing they’re 100% safe when they play.

Mad For Mobile

Back in 2010, there were hundreds of new mobile casinos launching every month. Some of them were awesome and made us feel like the future was here. We thought maybe hoverboards weren’t a distant dream any more…but some of the new mobile casinos were shockingly bad too. We had to do something, so we made our reviews procedure even tougher by adding more testing criteria.

Responsible Gambling

Here at Casino.org we want you to have fun. If you or someone you know thinks they might have a gambling problem, please visit our Responsible Gambling page. Our comprehensive list of gambling addiction resources and support is here to help:
