Rating and analysing bingo sites is an important task to do, and can only be done by people who know what it is like to gamble because only they can understand what good gameplay and offers represent; so only they can be competent enough to truly review these online bingo sites.
As well as our assessment method which we shall focus more on later, we also have a philosophy that drives our motivations behind creating this site. We want to create an area with fair and transparent reviews about online casino sites and their different welcome offers, promotions and other such things, so that other people can have the best possible experience.
One thing that is important to us is transparency. We want to always be honest and provide valuable insight into which operators are the best and offer the fairest experience. In this goal, we have decided to share the criteria behind our assessments and reviews.
Some sites reviewed also provide specific offers in one particular field, such as blackjack and slots, then the marking criteria for those sites will include some extra components. The points underneath can still be applied to almost all of the casinos reviewed as they are necessary for secure bingo environment.
The first criterion is user experience. This is very important although it is also a very subjective component. Some parts of it are objective however, like loading speeds and availability of customer support. Design, colour schemes and the interface as well as many other points are all taken into account to judge what is a good user experience.
Software and Games
The second criterion is software and game selection. A long relationship between a punter and a casino site can be gained through welcome offers or the interface of the website, but it is also the quality of the games, the software and the variety of choice. We analyse the software providers to determine whether they are suitable or not. Many players prefer certain software providers as they provide their favourite games, and our reviews should include an overview of the software providers and choice of games. Even the most exciting games can become boring over time, but with a large enough range of game selection, gamblers will not become bored.
Thirdly we consider all offers, bonuses and free play options. Before committing to a game with real money, sometimes gamblers can play to just see what the game is like. For example, you can play blackjack or spin the slots a few times for free to see whether you enjoy this game or not. Offering this option shows that the online casino is quite user friendly, as not all sites offer this. On top of this, we will analyse the welcome offers and other promotions to see what the wagering requirements are and what other obligations can be coerced onto the player. There is nothing worse than signing up somewhere based on a welcome offer before later finding out that the welcome offer is not even worth it, so we will avoid this ever happening to you if you follow the reviews.
Next, we ponder the customer support options offered. Generally, casino sites should be able to offer either a free phone line or live chat support option on top of the email option. Customer support is very important to sort out any potential issues that might arise for the gambler, so those who go further and beyond to offer twenty four hour options will score highly on this point.
Fifthly, we evaluate banking options. Having the most common and used methods of payment is important for casinos to target the most users possible. Some people like using cryptocurrency to gamble, and we bear this mind. We also make very sure that all sites that we review have proven themselves to have secure methods of payment.
Sixthly, we review the casino site’s security. This is essential to our reviews and we always check that the companies have the relevant licenses, namely those from the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar since these are the main regulatory bodies for UK casinos.
Finally, we check that the online casino takes responsible gambling seriously. Having the options to better control your gambling is really important to keep in command, and we will only support casino sites that have provably supported responsible gambling.
