Review Process

Our stringent review process ensures we cover the most important insights for players. We review all aspects of the casinos and sportsbooks from a player perspective. Our reviews include:

  • safety and security
  • deposit methods
  • bonuses and promotions
  • game offerings
  • customer service availability and response time
  • withdrawal options and timing
  • mobile, tablet and desktop ease of use

All of these options must be a positive experience in order to be recommended by the Gamble Online Team for our top casino, poker or sportsbook reviews.

Online casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks should be an easy to use site with exceptional experiences for new and returning players. The mobile experience is  dominant in most countries around the world, so the menus should be easy to navigate with one hand and the graphics and text should be easy to read and understand. You should be able to register for a new account within 5 minutes and make a deposit with the easiest transaction method available in your country. If you are live-betting on sports you want to make sure it’s easier to find the game and make your wager as well as if you are playing an online casino game you want to have a great hand-held experience too. From sign-in to placing your first session bet, the process should be seamless each and every time.

Our goal is to find the best online casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks in the world.

Bonuses are critical to player satisfaction at all casinos and do play an important factor in the review process. There should be a welcome bonus for each style of player to choose from whether it is a Casino, free spin slot bonus, or a sportsbook welcome bonus. It’s also important that VIP players get regular special offers from their casino and sportsbook as you want to be treated well, if you are deciding to play with that gambling estabilishment. Before you do sign up, be sure to review the deposit and withdrawal options so there are no surprises later. Each quality casino shoulder offer 5-or-more deposit options and at least three payout methods.

If you should have any questions, customer support should be accessible via phone, email or LIVE chat when convenient for you. The safety and security of your personal and financial information needs to be of the upmost importance for casino operators. We verify the sites are SSL encrypted, which can be confirmed by locating the little padlock near the address bar in your browser.

Verified & Licensed

To keep you safe

Another important aspects of our editorial review process is confirming that each online casino is licensed and their games are regularly audited by a third-party regulator to verify and meet fair play guidelines. Licensing and regulation authorities include Kahnawake Gaming Commission, Malta Gaming Authority, Curacao Gaming Control Board and the Antigua Gaming Commission.
