Editorial Guidelines

The Gamble Online staff takes betting seriously and is why our editorial guidelines’ primary purpose is to provide YOU, the player, an edge when deciding on your next online casino, poker room or sportsbook. The players’ edge is what sets Gamble Online’s casino reviews, poker reviews and sportsbook reviews apart from the competition as our guidelines act as a foundation for meticulously researched, accurate, relevant and timely critiques of the best online gambling sites on the market. Here’s how we accomplish our editorial goals.

Expert Staff

editorial guidelines

With decades of experience covering the betting industry, the Gamble Online editorial team is second to none. Our crew’s expertise affords them a unique perspective when weighing the pros and cons of each online casino, poker table and sportsbook. Their deep knowledge base is able to weed out the pretenders and highlight the leaders of the pack. This attention to detail makes it easier on the casino players to parse what can be an overwhelming decision.

Review Process

As you may have noticed, our stringent review process digs into several categories including site navigation ease of use, welcome bonuses and promotions, deposit and withdrawal options, game variation, mobile gaming ability, customer support access and safety and security. All of these boxes must be checked before we’d ever recommend you play at a casino site.

In short, online casinos, poker rooms and sportsbooks should be very basic in layout. There’s no reason each should display several menus, sub-menus and links. From sign-in to placing your first session bet, the process should be seamless each and every time.

At this point, welcome bonuses are a must. If the site you’re considering isn’t offering any type of welcome bonus to new players, simply move on to the next. 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 and payout methods.

While not every online casino promotes a sportsbook, the majority should offer both classic table and card games like blackjack, roulette and poker in addition to a vast array of video slot machines. These desktop / laptop casinos should also be optimized for mobile play. That means the same gaming experience you enjoy in your desktop web browser should also be available on your mobile devices.

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 of casino operators. So, be sure to verify their sites are SSL encrypted, which can be confirmed by locating the little padlock near the address bar.

Verification & Licensed

editorial guidelines

One of the most 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. Some of these licensing and regulation authorities include Kahnawake Gaming Commission, Malta Gaming Authority and Gaming Commission of Panama.

Impartial Critique

Because no members of our editorial team currently work for or have worked for any of the gambling sites we’re reviewing, you can rely on an impartial critique of the good, the bad and the ugly from a trusted voice.

Help You Gain an Edge

To reiterate, Gamble Online’s primary function is to help players gain a helpful edge when choosing their next online casino. A simple Google search of “best online casinos” will generate thousands of hits when only a select few deserve the recognition. We are here to amplify those options.
