Online Casino Information

For over two decades players from around the world have been experiencing the excitement of playing casino games from the comfort of their homes. The ease of access combined with the games and jackpots on offer has seen online gaming become a very popular form of online entertainment.

The industry has now grown to the point where the game range and quality is on par if not even better than the games you expect to find at big casinos like Crown, The Star, Jupiters or the ones in Las Vegas.

Free Play or Real Money?

All of the casinos we list give you the option of either playing for free or for real money. If you're new to online gaming then we suggest trying out the games in free mode first so you can find the games you really like before risking any money.

Of course nothing really beats the excitement of playing for real so once you've tried out the games for free you can then make your first deposit, collect a bonus and start winning for real.

How to Choose a Casino

Picking where to play can be a bit of a daunting task especially if you've never tried online gaming before. We have a long list of features that casinos must have before we even begin our reviews and these are a good starting point for anyone who is new to playing online.

Casinos should always,

  • Be licensed to operate in a recognised jurisdiction.
  • Have their game odds and payouts independently audited.
  • Use software from a reputable software company.
  • Process all financial transactions securely.
  • Have responsible gambling policies in place and allow self exclusion.
  • Pay players as promptly as possible
  • Have support staff available at all times.

Every casino listed at has all of these features and you should always make sure that every casino you play at ticks all of the boxes.

Once you have all of these questions covered it then comes down to personal choice. Everyone is going to have different favourites so if you've never played online before then we suggest trying out a few different gaming sites to see which ones you like the best.
