Best Online Casinos: United Kingdom
Recommending casinos to play at online is what we do best at ThePogg. We have hundreds of the best online casino reviews that will allow you to make informed decisions about where you want to play.
The number of online casinos available today is ridiculous. There are literally thousands of licensed casinos, not to mention the ones without licences that want you to come to their site and spend your money on their games. Each one will claim that they offer something that makes them better than their competitors but if it is genuine evaluation of an online casino that you are after then look no further.
About ThePOGG’s Best Online Casino Criteria
ThePOGG.com takes account of a wide variety of factors when reviewing casinos and looks weight these factors based on what is important to come to a combined rating. This system allows us to order casinos in a manner that should place those properties offering a better selection of what you want at the top and in positions that are easier to find.
That does not mean that what we think is important is always going to be right for you. And that’s why we also give ratings breakdowns. So if you feel that one factor – perhaps payment speed – is more important than any other, you can make informed judgements regarding whether our ratings reflect your own priorities.
So what do we look at?
Licensing and legislation for online casinos
Unlike the vast majority of affiliate sites, ThePOGG.com serves as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service. This means that for some license/jurisdictions if you ever experience difficulties you can come to us and we will contact the operator on your behalf. In fact our ADR service has served as an ADR in an official capacity for multiple regulatory agencies at different stages and still does so for operators licensed in both Malta and Jersey, meaning that we can - depending on the size of the claim - offer legally binding rulings on complaints against some operators licensed in these jurisdictions. We build our experiences working with operators to resolve complaints into our reviews. If an casino will not cooperate to resolve player complaints, they will not be recommended to players by us. This combination of complaint management and reviewing ensures that when you read our reviews, you are getting a uniquely qualified opinion on the practices and management of the casino. No other review site currently has the official role that ThePOGG.com does. This impacts both the Licensing and Trustworthiness sections of our reviews.
Top casinos with legitimate bonuses and a smooth withdraw process
In a digital world where systems are automated to take our money as quickly as possible, we believe that traffic should flow in both directions. We expect casinos to pay their players quickly and will make sure that if they do not that you know all about it. As such, payout speed in another rating that is built into the overall review a casino receives.
Another check we include on our quality barometer are the casino sign-up and welcome bonuses that are offered to try and get you to join them. As was mentioned previously, there are thousands of online casinos out there all trying to win you offer with special deals and offers. Here at ThePogg, we will make sure that you know which casinos are offering the best bonuses, to save you the time and effort of trawling through them all.
Casino sites with the best customer support
We also expect all of your questions and queries to be dealt with in a reasonable timeframe. The sheer volume of online casinos out there means that good customer service is a must for any operator vying for your custom. You need to know that you are being listened to and we will make sure that this information is available for you in our reviews section.
Casinos with the best games and software
One sure fire way to reduce customer complaints is through the deployment of quality software. You want your casino experience to be smooth and engaging, something that can only happen if the software being used is of the highest calibre.
Finding a safe & secure casino in your country
For our reviewing team the priority is always going to be ‘will the casino treat you fairly’. It is more important to us that the operator engages fair practice than pays quickly or offers more games. An operator that twists the rules or make them up to suit themselves, one that engages predatory Responsible Gambling practices and exploits players – they are an operator to be avoided even if they paid quickly or offered great bonuses. We view your safety and security as the most important factor to be considered.
And finally, we use geo-targeting to ensure that you are only ever shown casinos that you CAN play with. Casinos that restrict players from your country will be excluded from the list you are shown (assuming we can accurately read which country you are viewing from) so that you only see relevant results.
