Regulator List

Despite regulation being a developing political process and not being as strong as it should be at the moment, where a casino is regulated (holds its license) can make a difference to how safe your money is. Below you’ll find a list of the regulatory authorities that license all of the casinos you will find on this site. These range from strong regulators that are working towards making online gambling a safe and reputable industry to namesake regulation that cater to what are essentially casino clip joints. You’ll find contact details and complaint information contained on the relevant pages, but you should always consider posting a complaint here before contacting a regulator – frequently we are able to resolve disputes faster than a regulator can.

We’ve built the strength and reputation of the licensing body a casino works with as a ranking factor into our casino reviews and in this fashion it should ensure that casinos with weak regulation find it far more difficult to gain prominent placement on the site. This does lead to one issue however for any visitor for the USA; with the passing of the UIGEA act in 2006 it became illegal for US banks to process transaction to or from online casinos and as such the vast majority of the casino industry withdrew from the US market. Most of the strong regulators stopped licensing any casino that continued to accept US players at that point. This means that the casinos found at the top of our list almost without exception will not accept US players. To provide an alternative and help our US customers find the best venues they can play at, we’re in the process of building in geographically filtered lists. These will allow you to look at the top rated casinos for your specific area of the world and is already active on the homepage. We hope to have this active on our full casino list in the near future.

Situated in in the south-west Pacific Ocean is the island of New Zealand. The population of New Zealand is quickly approaching the 5 million mark. The gambling sector in New Zealand is incredibly healthy and all forms of gambling are popular with citizens of this jurisdiction. New Zealand regulates gambling and also forbids any advertising to citizens resident in its jurisdiction that may induce them to gamble with foreign operators and fines are levied against operators that are found to be doing so. It appears that players from New Zealand are permitted to gamble with providers situated beyond its own shores – there is no record of any criminality or prosecution attached to the activity but New Zealand does not offer player protection if a player has a complaint against a foreign based operator.
