Online Casino Reviews

It would be impossible for you to check out each and every Australian online casino yourself. It would take far too much time and you would get less time for actually wagering. Online casino reviews allow you to choose suitable online casinos more quickly. And if you are a new player without much online casino gambling experience, it would be wiser to bank on credible reviews like ours.

About our Online Casino Reviews

Our casino reviews are not rehashed from reviews available online. Nor are they written by simply going through the web sites of the online casinos. They are written by experts who have over a decade of online casino gambling experience. Some have been associated with operating online casinos, others have been associated with software development and yet others have worked in firms that audit online casinos. They know the ins and outs of online casino gambling.

Before our experts review online casinos, they sign up as players and actually wager for extended periods. They deposit and withdraw funds several times, claim bonuses and interact with customer support. In short they have first-hand experience of what they are stating in the reviews.

Finally, we have only one stake-holder group, and that is the Australian online casino player. We are not beholden to anyone else. So our online casino reviews are brutally honest and completely fair.

How we Review and Rate Online Casinos

We first look for three things – the licensing authority, the software provider and the independent auditor. All three have to be from our approved list. If any of these three important input providers to an online casino is not totally reputed then we look no further and do not recommend that online casino. If this first hurdle is successfully crossed we begin to look at the other services.

We have identified the following four main parameters on which we assess online casinos. These are casino games, bonuses and promotions, banking and user friendliness. Each of these has been broken down into its important constituents. For example, for casino games we look at the number of games, the categories covered and the frequency of new additions. For banking we look at the security protocols in place and whether payouts are made in time. For bonuses, the most important issue is whether bonuses are credited in time and are converted to cashable credits in a fair manner. For user friendliness, the customer support and ease of navigation play an important role.

Our expert team evaluates each sub-issue objectively by playing at the online casino and aggregates the performance on each count for the final rating.

What to Look For in Online Casino Reviews

We have listed three important aspects that make a casino review credible. We make sure that our reviews have all of them.

First is to make sure that all aspects of the online casino are covered. Your main objective is to play the games, but everything counts in the end. Check out whether the reviews cover bonuses, banking and customer support. Do the reviews discuss the fairness and the security issues? If a review skips any component of online casino gambling, then there is a likelihood of that component not being up to the mark.

Good online casinos deal in specifics and quantitative information to the extent possible and not in vague, qualitative descriptions. For example a good review will say ‘more than 200 games are available’ and not ‘a lot many games are available’. A good review will say ‘payouts are processed in three working days’ and not ‘payouts are processed at the earliest’.

You should randomly check out some of the facts in the review with the online casino web site, just to make sure that the review is authentic. It could be the wagering requirements for the welcome bonus or the name of the licensing authority. If any of the information is not correct then you cannot depend on the review.

How to Choose an Online Casino to Play at

First you need to be clear as to what are your specific objectives in online gambling. Will you be playing progressive jackpot pokies most of the time or standard blackjack variants. Suppose it is the latter. Then you should choose an online casino that has built in strategy cards in its blackjack games. If you are intending to claim bonuses on a regular basis you should look for online casinos with lenient bonus terms.

Then you should check out our online casino reviews and shortlist a few of them on the basis of your requirements. Keep in mind that all our recommended online casinos are excellent from a general perspective.

The next step is to sign up at the shortlisted online casinos, but without first opening a real money account. Play the games for free for a few days. Figure out the navigation in the games menu and within the games. Contact customer support using all options available and assess the effectiveness of each option and that of the overall customer support.

If you are happy with the online casino then convert to a real money account. Test the bonus system by claiming the welcome bonus. Request a withdrawal as soon as you can. If the online casino passes this final test, start wagering there on a regular basis.
