How We Rate & Review
One of the most asked questions we have received over the years is how we rate each of the online casinos on our pages. When you arrive at Casino.org you can trust that we have conducted the most extensive research and analysis of all of the online poker sites reviewed here. Our rating system sets us apart from the rest and provides you with unique and thorough review information. We have this ability due to our long-term experience as one of the first online casino evaluation websites, as well as our personal relationship with many of the biggest names in the gaming industry.
At the very heart of our reviews is our talented review team. Each of our reviewers has years of experience playing casino games both online and off. In this way, they can spot the very best websites and give you the detailed information you need to make the best choices.
The TeamDavid Sheldon
David has been playing casino games for over 10 years. His speciality is blackjack and baccarat and, although he has never had the success that the MIT Blackjack team had, he does enjoy passing on his accumulated wisdom regarding strategy and odds. He now spends most of his time in online casinos, as he prefers to play games from the comfort of his home.Katie Barlowe
Katie is our resident slot machines guru. If you don't know what a payline, bonus game, free spin or a scatter symbol is - Katie is the girl to ask. She can often be found spinning the reels of her favorite games, testing out new machines, and keeping a close eye on the progressive jackpot meters.
Kevin has probably forgotten more about odds and statistics than many people ever know. He is always the man to ask about which game to play in a casino (and why). Kevin is also a history buff and can tell you all about the obscure origins of many of the games you can find in an online casino.
Samantha is our go to girl when we want to know what goes on behind the scenes in a casino. A self confessed tech geek, she can explain the inner workings of random number generators, as well as cast a critical eye on the software an online casino uses.
When our reviewers examine a site, they do not just visit it, they actually play it. They join each site and play all of the games on several different occasions to get the best over-all view of the qualities at any given time of the day. This means they can give an in-depth view on the important aspects that have such a great influence on your experience. Before our reviewers even begin to look into the more detailed information regarding each site they take a look at:
Software: The software is the backbone of an online casino. Without it you can't connect, have your own account or win money. Our reviewers make sure everything about the software on our chosen online casino sites works perfectly, without bugs or glitches, and let you know when you need to watch out for problems.
Playability: How an online casino software program is laid out, if it is easy to find the games they offer, and there are enough varieties of each game offered is just the beginning of what makes an online casino playable.
Interaction: When you play games at online casinos you probably aren't thinking about how responsive the customer service is. Not until there's a problem and then it may be too late. We make this one of the highest priorities in our review. We make sure each of the online casino sites we list has customer service that is easy to contact, and has multiple means of communication. Then we make sure that the people who are in place to answer your questions have the technical knowledge to do so. That way you can be sure that the online casino sites we review will be ready to answer your questions and get you back into the games as quickly as possible.
Download Speed: This may not be the biggest issue, but if you are sitting at your computer for hours waiting to have some fun, relax and win money, you begin to realize the importance of software that downloads quickly. Our reviewers download the software to each and every online casino site we review to be sure you can play in minutes, not hours.
Installation: When it's all said and done, if you get the program down, and can't install it because it is buggy, or requires the technical knowledge of a Silicon Valley Whiz-Kid, then it's useless. Our reviewers install the software from each online casino site on multiple operating systems to make sure it works properly in the widest variety of situations.
Our relationship with the many large online casinos is important to us, because it gives us the inside track on what is going on behind the scenes. We work hard to establish the relationships with the staff and owners of online poker sites so you always get the inside scoop on what is important to you.
Finally, we are always active in the online casino community so that we can stay in touch with the issues that are most important to our fellow players at all time. We also monitor the feedback we get from you, our visitors, so we know we are giving you the information that you need most. Best of all, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that the information here comes to you from casino enthusiasts who love the games and want you to thrive and enjoy your time.
Rating Categories at Casino.org
In order to test the actual qualities of the websites, each of our reviewers actually deposits money into their new account at the online casinos they are reviewing. Then they view the site from the point of view of the player to come up with an overall score for each of the important aspects below.
Deposit Bonuses: We give you the bonus information for each online casino site, and also tell you what you have to do to get that bonus.
Promotions: Keeping you playing longer is the best way to win more money. So we are always looking for the online casinos that have the most on-going promotions for existing players. We let you know what they are and how to get them.
VIP Programs: It won't take long for you to become one of the pros, and when you do, we want you to have access to the sites that give you the most value for your time. Just like in the online casino capitals of the world, online casinos treat regular players just a little better. Of course, the odds of winning are the same no matter who you are, but the extra incentives, free rolls, tournament entries and other perks are great too, and we lay them all out for you.
Size and Number of Jackpots: You don't have to be a professional gambler to understand how important it is to know this information. We give you the low-down on what to expect from each online casino so you can go to where the numbers are best and your winnings will be the highest.
Withdrawal and Deposit Methods: Getting money into your online casino and then withdrawing your winnings shouldn't be a hassle. We'll let you know what methods each online casino uses for their players so you can see if your chosen method is available.
Level of Traffic: Even the best games, flashiest graphics and best payouts won't compensate for a lack of players. Our reviewers let you know if an online casino site is busy or if you'll be waiting forever for a table to come together. We'll also let you know where the fish are--that soft competition that is easiest to beat so you can scoop up all the winnings.
Last, but by no means least, our reviewers are given strict instructions to never let bad security through. The security of your personal information is important to you, so it is of primary importance to us too. We make sure each of the online casinos we review has the highest level of encryption to protect your sensitive personal and financial information.
We'll also let you know if there are any unusual Terms and Conditions on any of the sites we review, and what you might have to keep an eye out for.
Our Expectations of Continued Excellence
Our reviews do not stop when the type hits the page online. Once we review a site and it passes our strict criteria, our reviewers re-visit the sites randomly to make sure the quality is maintained. This never stops so that you can always be assured of the most thorough, accurate and timely information when you read our site.
The Bottom Line
We do all the hard work for you. Instead of spending countless hours weeding through the thousands of online casino options, and then hoping you have found one you can trust and enjoy, we give you the information all in one place. Our concise reviews give you the low-down on the sites you need, so you can get to what you really want to do--play casino games and win money!

Collection of Personal Information
When a customer views our websites pages and clicks a link to read a review or sign up for an online casino account, we collect the customer's IP address. From the corresponding Internet Service Provider (ISP), we also know your location, specifically your city, state, and country. Depending on the ISP, we may obtain a zip code as well. We are not able to obtain a customer's name, address, phone number, birth date, age, or gender unless the customer specifically provides it to the company.
With the customer's permission, a small file is placed on that person's computer hard drive. That cookie then tracks web traffic so we know when you visit our website or associated sites, and we are able to analyze your preferences and frequency of visits. This information allows us to cater web applications more appropriately and analyze data for our internal marketing purposes. The data is then deleted from our system. Customers can decline the cookies or delete them at any time, but they may not be able to take full advantage of the company's website.
