We regularly review online casinos and list them below for you to find new and trustworthy gambling sites to play at. Use the filter options provided to show only those casino reviews that are relevant to your location and preferences.
What Is the Goal of Our Casino Reviews?
The goal of our casino reviews is to quickly give you an overview of what to expect from each casino. We present hard facts and let these speak for themselves. We avoid writing long blocks of text as most people don’t care about our praises or ranting. Being gamblers ourselves, we know what you want – hard facts. Accurate information along with honest and unbiased scoring. This is what we provide.
In each casino review, we link to legitimate resources where players have shared their own experience of the casino. We also allow users here on World Wide Gamblers to make comments in the reviews to share their experiences with the community.
How Do We Do Our Casino Reviews?
With each casino, we meticulously gather information. The process includes:
- Checking all game types, number of games, and available game providers.
- Checking the welcome bonus, other promotional offers, and loyalty programs.
- Checking all deposit and withdrawal methods along with fees and limits.
- Checking the availability of customer support.
- Checking all accepted and restricted countries.
- Checking the gambling license and verifying if it is legit.
- Thoroughly reading through bonus terms and conditions to understand wagering requirements, wagering contribution, and other rules that apply.
- Thoroughly reading through the general terms and conditions to understand if something fishy is hidden within them that players should know about.
How Do We Score Casinos in Our Reviews?
We keep our scoring simple and base it on reputation, game selection, bonus value, and customer support. With each factor, we use a score value that ranges from 1 – 5 stars, which reflects the following:
- 1 star: very poor experience – it doesn’t get worse than this. If a casino scores a 1 on any front, it is probably not worth the time.
- 2 stars: poor experience – it could be worse, but similarly to 1 star, if a casino gets 2 stars in any category, you should consider another option.
- 3 stars: mediocre experience – not bad and not great, somewhat within the norm. The casino is probably worth your time unless it has too many 3 stars.
- 4 stars: great experience – this is well within the norm and slightly above. If a casino has a score of 4 in all factors, you should definitely check it out.
- 5 stars: exceptional experience – this is closing in on the gold standard of casinos and is about as good as it gets.
Our review team has over 10 years of professional casino experience each and just as many years being gamblers themself. They have all reviewed hundreds of casino sites in their career and instantly know what is a good, mediocre, or bad game selection, bonus, or customer support. Simply by using their experience and comparing the casino to what the norm and gold standard is.
Our scoring system relies on experience rather than a hard-coded way of giving points for certain factors. Simply because there are way too many factors that affect the value of a game selection or the value of a bonus. It is very difficult to form an exact scoring system for that. However, using experience and knowledge, it is easy to form an opinion and give a 90% accurate score.
Breaking Down Each Factor
Even though we don’t have a hard-coded way of giving points for certain factors, we do meticulously check everything that we need to form an accurate opinion on which we base our score. For the sake of transparency, here’s a run-down of what we take into account.
We check all types of available games and give higher scoring weight to the most popular ones, including slot machines, jackpot games, live casino games, and crash games.
We check the quantity of games and what providers the casino works with. Some providers are much better than others in terms of game quality. For instance, Evolution Gaming, Playtech, and Pragmatic Play shine when it comes to live casino, while NetEnt, Play’n GO, and Big Time Gaming are some of the top names among slot developers.
Determining bonus value includes taking the following factors into account:
- Match percentage of the bonus
- Maximum bonus amount that can be had
- Wagering requirements
- Wagering contributions for different games
- Time limit to complete the wagering requirement
- Maximum cashout once wagering is completed (if any)
- If real money or bonus funds are used first when wagering
- If real money counts towards wagering or only the bonus
- What happens if a player decides to cancel the bonus (are only bonus winnings lost or also winnings from the deposited amount?)
- How often players can take part in bonuses at the casino
Here’s an example of a bonus that would receive 5 stars from us:
- Match percentage: 100%
- Max bonus: $/€/£1,000
- Wagering requirement: 35x on slots and 50% contribution on live casino games
- Time limit: 30 days
- Maximum cashout: none
- Other terms: Real, deposited money is used first and then the bonus funds. Both real money and bonus funds count towards the wagering. If the bonus is canceled, only winnings made from the bonus funds will be lost.
This bonus has favorable terms and conditions, with the most noteworthy factor being its high bonus amount and low wagering requirement on both slots and live casino games. It also excels in the other categories.
Here’s an example of a bonus that would receive 1 star from us:
- Match percentage: 50%
- Max bonus: $/€/£100
- Wagering requirement: 80x on slots and 10% contribution on live casino games
- Time limit: 3 days
- Maximum cashout: $/€100
- Other terms: Real, deposited money, and bonus funds are used at the same time, proportionally. Only bonus funds count towards the wagering. If the bonus is canceled, all winnings are lost.
This bonus has a low match percentage, a fairly low max bonus, and very unfavorable terms. You only have three days to complete the wagering requirement which is very tight and the wagering requirement is also very high. On top of that, all winnings are lost if the bonus is canceled or not wagered in time.
We base a casino’s reputation on legitimate sources where players share their experience with the site, such as Trustpilot, AskGamblers, and the comment section we have within our reviews where players can leave their feedback.
We do not let our own experience playing at the casino bias the reputation score as it plays a very small role in the grand scheme of things. We look at the bigger picture.
As a general guideline, we have the following scoring scheme:
- 5 stars = Over 75% of player reviews are positive
- 4 stars = 50 – 75% of player reviews are positive
- 3 stars = 30 – 50% of player reviews are positive
- 2 stars = 15 – 30% of player reviews are positive
- 1 star = Under 15% of player reviews are positive
We are quite generous with our scoring as players with negative experiences are much more likely to share a negative review than a player with a positive one is sharing a positive. This is a well-known psychological phenomenon known as negativity bias. Therefore, we have to take this into account and adjust our scoring accordingly for it to be as accurate as possible.
With that said, we also read through individual negative reviews to understand common issues. Systematic issues with withdrawals, cheating claims from multiple users, or a pattern of unhelpful customer service would significantly impact our reputation rating.
Our approach to scoring customer support comes down to quality and availability. We check the available mediums to reach the casino’s support and its operating hours. Our scoring weight leans heavily towards live chat support since this is what most players use, rather than e-mail and phone.
We also test the quality of the live chat support on at least two different occasions by asking the following questions:
- “What is the wagering requirement of the welcome bonus?”
- “Can I wager the bonus on live casino games?”
- “Do you have any weekly, monthly, or yearly withdrawal limit?”
- “Can you explain to me what game RTP is?”
Already knowing the answer to these questions, we can easily determine the agent’s knowledge and service-mindedness.
