How We Rate and Review Online Casinos

- Safety and Security
Background & Safety Check
Before checking each casino further, we perform an investigation on a few key points that show us whether a casino is trustworthy or not. One important criteria is the license of the casino as we only review legal casinos. Another critical point is the security of a casino, where we check if the connection with the website and software is fully encrypted and secured over SSL. Last but not least we also perform a background check on the company, where it`s registered and who`s behind it and of they are publicly traded or not.
Deposit funds and contact customer support
A very important part for a casino to get a positive vote from us, is how easy it is to deposit. During this step, we check all the available deposit methods and make sure the most popular one`s such as Visa, MasterCard, bank transfer, PayPal, Neteller and others are included. During this step we also get anonymously in touch with customer support with a set of very specific questions and queries.
Play games and cash out winnings
The last step of our review process is probably the most important one for every casino player. With our freshly deposited funds we proceed to play a wide array of games such as slots, table games like blackjack or roulette, poker and othres such as sports betting or lotteries. The remaining balance and winnings are then cashed out. Extra points are earned for casinos with fast cashouts.
Casino rated and on our approved list
If all above steps have been evaluated positively, we will give a final score and write a detailed review of our findings. Each casino is re-checked every 3 months and our review scores updated accordingly. As we are advocated of transparency, we will list all of the good and bad points for each casino. Casinos who get a bad score are listed on our blacklist, so you as a player can be sure your money and winnings are safe by avoiding these casinos.View our recommended casinos
Top 5 Tips for Choosing an Online Casino for You
All reputable online casinos will have a number of reviews. These are important to look at because they can be a quick way of telling you whether or not it’s something you’ll enjoy.
Not all casinos accept players from everywhere in the world. Even if they do, they may not offer support that's particularly suitable for every country so look into this before deciding on where to play.
Depending on which casino software that site uses, they may not have all of the top games. When you sign up and claim a bonus, a good first step is to see which of your preferred casino games are listed.
More often than not, the bigger the bonus, the better it is. While this is true, you need to examine the bonus wager requirements too. It’s important to know how much you need to play.
There’s nothing worse than winning a huge jackpot and then sitting and waiting for weeks or even months before you can claim it. You’ll want an online casino with a fast payout time.
