Editorial Policies

The following principles, standards, and guidelines shape how we practice journalism at Casino.org, and determine which news stories appear on our pages. It’s our mission to be the No. 1 news site in gaming, and thus we stand committed to serving readers, with quality news that matters to them.

Overview

We promise to provide readers with impartial, informative reporting about casino and gambling industry news. The pursuit of accurate, relevant, and timely information is the driving force behind what we do, fueling our passion for providing the basis of civil discourse and meaningful engagement among an informed community.

Values

Casino.org believes in serving the reader first, with news about gaming, gambling, and casinos, from a business and culture perspective. We also believe in creating a website that is easy to search and navigate, so readers and web users can always find what they’re looking for.

Accuracy

We put a premium on only sharing news that is factual and in context. Our reporting on all platforms will be truthful, transparent, and respectful. Our facts will be accurate and fairly presented. Our analysis will represent our best independent judgment.

Editorial Integrity

We don’t mislead readers. We don’t steal content. Plagiarism is a fireable offense.

Community

At Casino.org, we make our news free and available to the public on multiple media platforms. We seek to inform and entertain people interested in news about the gaming industry across the world, and we invite them to participate in the public conversations our news articles spark.

Contributors

Casino.org employs independent contractors around the world to provide the best news coverage of gaming across the planet. We maintain a roster of talented writers who professionally deliver the news.

Sources

Casino.org finds news from reliable sources, which can include press releases, social media activity, industry trade publications, mainstream news, and direct contacts with gambling operations that at different times provide information, perspective, and confirmation of facts.

Attribution

Casino.org produces original content and will always properly credit the original source of material obtained from other websites. Plagiarism, fabrication, and misappropriation of intellectual property are grounds for termination.

Corrections

Errors do happen, and when we find them we correct them. When we make a mistake, Casino.org will work quickly to fix it within the story, and possibly explain details of the change. If you see an error, please don’t hesitate to contact us at corrections@casino.org.

Links

All links on Casino.org are editorial in nature, and they direct readers to relevant pages within our site or elsewhere on the internet. We’ll never send readers to an inappropriate destination, and no internal nor external links will misdirect readers to a destination different than implied.

Special Submissions

Casino.org occasionally welcomes submissions from outside contributors. To be considered for publication, articles must serve our readers first, and not be promotional. We reserve the right to edit for length and style, and will work with writers to address any concerns before a story goes live.

Comments

We believe in open discussion and public discourse, and thus welcome comments on our articles and social media channels. All comments must meet Casino.org’s community standards for approval. While sharing relevant links is allowed, all reader-submitted comments will be moderated for spam.

Social Media

Our writers maintain independence on social media but are expected to observe professional practices in their online activity. They agree not to violate terms of service of any social media outlet (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, e.g.). Behavior that reflects poorly on Casino.org or misrepresents the company can be grounds for dismissal.

Impartiality and Conflicts of Interest

Our writers have no financial relationships with subjects of their stories. When our journalists seek secondary employment or freelance work, they are expected to inform their editor(s) to assure that there are no conflicts that could cloud their coverage or impartiality.

Business Partners

Our news is editorially driven, and not influenced by Casino.org’s business operations. Our independent news teams do not report to any other team in the company, and will not compromise editorial quality under pressure from business partners. In our mission to be the No. 1 news site in gaming, this position is non-negotiable.
