How We Review Real Money Casino Sites
When we review real money casino sites, we always do so with players like you in mind. Here’s a selection of the features we check out before recommending new casinos.
To protect your personal and financial information, you should only play at trustworthy real money casinos. That’s why licence status is one of the first things we look at when reviewing online casinos. A licence from the UK Gambling Commission means that a site adheres to strict rules regarding fair play on its games and practices. Failing to meet these standards can result in licence revocation and severe financial penalties.
Sign Up Offers
Bonuses and promotions can enhance your online gambling experience and give your bankroll a boost. We want to see real money casinos reward new customers with a generous welcome bonus featuring free spins or a matched deposit bonus, but ideally both. On top of that, we look at how player-friendly the terms and conditions are, such as wagering requirements.
Range of Casino Games
Whether you have a particular passion for playing online bingo, enjoy progressive jackpot slots or are a firm fan of video poker, variety counts in the long-term. We tend to recommend sites that offer a wide selection of games, including everything from Slingo to live dealer casino action.
Many online gamblers prefer to play on their mobile phone, so we take a close look at the mobile offering for each real money casino we review. A mobile-optimised website is a must, but it’s even better if a casino also offers a native mobile app with extras like two-factor authentication and push notifications.
Reputable casinos offer a selection of secure payment options. When we review a real money casino, we always drop in on the banking page to ensure trusted payment methods are available. We like to see debit cards, online bank transfers, prepaid cards, and e-wallets included in the available options, and it’s a bonus if options like Trustly and Boku are included too.
Attentive service is a hallmark of reputable online casinos. We think players should be able to contact customer support staff quickly and easily whenever the need arises. 24/7 live chat may not always be an option, but we do want to see this service available during busy hours, along with email and telephone support.
