Independent Online Casino Reviews and Ratings

Reviews of the Best Online Casinos, Needs Work Casinos, Not Recommended Casinos, and Blacklisted Casinos for 2021

Here at ThePOGG we completely understand that the maze of the online casino market can be difficult to navigate through. We are here to help. With over 30 years of collective experience in the gambling industry, our team can take the hard work out of finding a reputable and honest online casino for you to play with. With over 2000 casino reviews published on our site; you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for here at ThePOGG. We use clear categories to organise our online casino reviews so that you can avoid the worst operators and play with only the best and safest. Our reviews are rigorous and detailed and most importantly, entirely independent. Unlike other review sites that use advertising to generate revenue, our site will not allow operators to ‘buy’ placement. Operators gain recommended status by ensuring they maintain a positive reputation and resolving any complaints that are brought to us. The top advertising spaces (homepage and sidebars) are reserved for those operators who have chosen to engage our Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service for their Malta Gaming Authority license. This means that we have a legally binding contract in place ensuring our rulings are respected by the operator. No other affiliate-based review site can say this. Operators cannot approach us to pay for improved placement or ranking on our site – we will recommend only the very best online casinos – ones that we believe have earned a reputation for trustworthiness and dependability. To find out more about how our review process sorts the best from the rest then read on.

How we Organise our Casino Reviews at ThePOGG

We understand that players want to play – they do not necessarily want to spend hours researching the reputations of online casinos before they actually have a chance to deposit. With this is mind we devised a system of review classification that allows transparency so that players can make informed choices about where they want to signup quickly, knowing that it will be a safe and player focused environment. We use four comprehensive statuses to organise our online casino reviews: Recommended, Needs Work, Not Recommended and Blacklisted.


- Recommended casinos are ones that have demonstrated themselves to be safe, secure and honest. The majority of them will be happy to discuss complaints brought to us by customers so that they can be resolved to the satisfaction of both parties. They are subject to quality regulation and provide the highest levels of protection to vulnerable players.

Needs Work

- Needs Work casinos are, as the name suggests, online operators that have not yet gained our full trust. This may derive from a variety of circumstances. Firstly, they may be an entirely brand-new property, without any related casinos already operating in the market for us to draw conclusions from. This does not mean that they will never make it to Recommended status – just that it will take them slightly longer to do so. They will remain in the Needs Work category for a year. If this year passes and all of our interactions with this operator have proven to be satisfactory and they have demonstrated their right to be considered secure and reputable, then they will transition into the Recommended category. Secondly, there may some complaints processed by us that we are not 100% convinced have been resolved entirely satisfactorily then the operator will be held in the Needs Work category. They may simply remain at Needs Work status or they may have a probationary period (depending on the nature of the issue) before they can gain Recommended status.

Not Recommended

- Not Recommended casinos are ones that we do not consider it wise for players to sign up and play at. Generally, several low-level issues have emerged over time leading us to believe that it is better to avoid playing with an online casino. Things like, being unwilling to engage in dialogue about complaints players have brought to us, repeated slow payments to players or various other problematic practices.


- Blacklisted casinos are the ones we consider to pose the biggest threat to players. They are proven to have repeatedly engaged behaviours we consider to be rogue and there is little recourse for players to recover lost funds if they have played with a Blacklisted operator. All too often they are unlicensed but claim to be licensed, or they offer fake versions of games, amongst other fraudulent activities. Avoid them at all costs.

The North American country of Canada shares a border with The United States of America and has coasts on the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific oceans. The population of Canada is currently in the region of 37.8 million people. With regard to the gambling sector, Canada has historically existed in a grey area but in recent years there has been a move towards officially recognizing that casino gaming, slots play, horse racing, lottery play, video lottery play, charitable gaming and interactive gaming are permitted in the country’s borders. There is no land-based licensor, but online gambling appears to be perfectly legal for Canadian citizens who wish to play.


The above information is what we believe to be the the legal status of online gambling, however information on this topic is limited and hard to find. We accept no liability for any errors or ommissions. It is the reader’s responsibility to ensure that they know the legality of online gambling in their country before engaging with any online gambling service.
