How We Review Casinos
Check for License and Security
First, we do a background check for every casino.
Here, we ask questions like:
Do they have a license from a respected regulator? Is their online reputation good? Is the website secure and encrypted by SSL?
This and much more goes into the background check of every casino we review.
Test the online casino with real money
After the background check is done, we always deposit a smaller sum to each casino and try it out for real.
This way we can see if the deposits are smooth, and of course, try out their games and any other features they might have on the website.
Without depositing to a casino, you can never know exactly how the site works, which makes this a vital part of the review process.
Win or lose – then cash out
After we’ve played for a while we always withdraw the winnings or the remains of our deposited money.
This way, we can try their withdrawal times and if everything goes well.
After this, we collect all the data from the test and start writing the review you, later on, will read.
A worldwide guide to games, top casinos and more
At Poker Player Newspaper we have loads of game guides and strategy articles for you to enhance your gameplay at the casinos and poker rooms. However, we also help you find the best place to play.
We do this by searching the internet for online casinos, sports betting sites and poker rooms.
Then we let our team of experts try these gambling sites out.
The sites are then rated based on our experience. In the ratings, we weigh in factors like game suppliers, banking methods, trustworthiness, bonuses and more.
List of casinos not on Gamstop
If you are a visitor from the UK, it’s good to know what sites are licensed and which ones are non-UK brands. For example, there are many casinos not on gamstop that operate within the UK borders.
One thing to consider regarding these casinos is that you need to close the accounts manually if you wish to do so. In other words, you can’t do it automatically by joining the Gamstop register.
Find a local Poker Room in our Directory
We have the biggest database of local poker rooms in the United States (and the rest of the world). This makes it easy to explore card rooms based on where in the world you are right now.
Looking for a local card game? Check out our poker & card room directory.
We cover Casino, Sports Betting and Poker news
Poker Player Newspaper started out as a magazine about poker only, however, today we cover the whole gambling spectrum including online casino, sports betting, lottery, bingo and of course poker.
We also cover the whole world of gambling, even if we do focus on the bigger markets like the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Canada. In the US players should always use licensed and legal casinos. New Jersey players can check out the NJ online casino list if they are uncertain if a casino is legal or not.
