And What Exactly Makes a Casino Great?
As pointed out in the previous section, a lot goes into determining why a casino towers above its competitors. But just to clarify this further, I look at things like the security of the casino, financial or otherwise, winning percentages, game selections, quality of support services, gameplay, bonuses, payment processing options, and so forth. To understand further why each of these factors is so critical to a casino’s rank, some of them have been explored in greater detail below.
Is The Casino Secure?
At the risk of mentioning the obvious, security is one of the most important things a casino should offer. Yet, for some reason, there are casinos out there that will not honor this expectation. Some of them are actually scams that will disappear with your money or find a way not to give it back to you, as they should.
Just to be clear, as soon as a casino gives me the impression that it is a fraud that poses serious threats to your money, I back off and don’t go any further.
But, to see if a casino checks out as far as security goes, there are a couple of things I consider. First of all, the way the casino is regulated is of paramount importance to me. Some casinos do not enjoy the legal endorsement of the governments in whose territories they are headquartered. This translates into some serious security risks for their players.
Another way to determine if a casino is secure is to look at reviews by establishments that do security testing on gambling sites. These include Certified Fair Gambling, eCOGRA, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Technical Systems Testing and others. These sites will reliably tell you a casino is safe and secure.
But since I don’t like to take chances, I also do some extra probing on my own to truly guarantee that a casino is safe and secure. I know for a fact that there are other factors beyond government licensing worth looking at, and I take this into consideration as well when writing these reviews. So, if you are not willing to give an inch as far as security is concerned when dealing with a casino, you will be safe relying on this site’s reviews.
How Good Are its Games?
At the end of the day, a casino should be in a position to offer the thrills of exciting game choices. The best casino is the one that does not hold you back as far as game choices are concerned, whether you like a specific game or to mix things up. On this site, I will tell you everything you need to know regarding a casino’s game selection.
So, you will know beforehand whether a casino offers slots, roulette, blackjack, craps, and any other game you fancy before you have even signed up. Of course, with this being one of the factors I look at while listing casinos, the ranking will also give an indication of how good a selection of games an online casino offers. But generally speaking, the best casinos also offer some of the largest game selections.
How Are its Payment Services?
Essentially, quality services in this respect entails being able to fund your account easily and withdraw your money easily and in a timely manner. So, if a casino already supports your favorite payment processing mode and makes withdrawals as painless and fast as possible, it is clearly better suited to your gambling needs.
Fortunately for you, the best casinos have multiple payment options. You will also love that many of them have gone a step further to make things for their clients more convenient by not charging any payment processing fees. So, for some payment methods, you will end up making money transfers completely free of charge, while for others, only third party charges will apply – the casino will not take anything for the money transfer service.
