How Do We Choose the Best Gambling Websites?
Here are some of the key areas we look at in our extensive casino reviews.
The first priority in our review process is licensing: you’ll never find unlicensed gambling sites at TopRatedCasinos. Licences show proof of an online gambling site’s commitment to safeguarding procedures, regulated games and betting markets, and the use of encrypted technologies that protect sensitive customer data. Online casinos access the Irish gambling market by attaining licences from approved foreign gambling regulators such as the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) and the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).
The list of Ireland’s best gambling sites features those that not only offer a bounty of the world’s greatest casino games, but also those that can offer exciting online sportsbooks. Since gambling is a form of entertainment, Irish players can access a range of high-quality casino and sportsbetting markets at the top sites.
A key factor for many punters when they sign up to a new site is the frequency, generosity, and accessibility of player bonuses. In our reviews, we take a look at a casino’s initial welcome bonus and favour those with impressive offers, especially if they are followed up with a string of consistent bonuses for existing customers.
Terms and Conditions
Of course, every bonus has small print, the severity of which can detract immensely from the quality of the bonus itself. To determine the true value of a bonus, we take a close look at the terms and conditions to see how restrictive they are. If there are steep wagering requirements, game restrictions, game weighting considerations, time limits, winnings caps, or anything else that affects a bonus, we’re sure to highlight these factors in our review.
The best online casinos offer players the choice of a long list of payment options, from debit cards to e-wallets to prepaid cards, giving the customer the utmost convenience for both deposits and withdrawals.
Design and User Experience
Has the site been well-designed, is it intuitive to use, and is it free of glitches and bugs? If so, it will score highly in this part of our review. Design and user experience may not be a top priority for lots of gamblers, but attractive layouts make a good first impression and simple navigational tools can make a huge difference to usability.
Mobile gambling is hugely popular, meaning that any online casino or betting site that wants to succeed in the modern iGaming world needs to have good mobile capabilities. The bare minimum in this category is to have a fully mobile-optimised site for all browser preferences, while the best online gambling sites will also have native apps available to download for both iOS and Android operating systems.
Players want the reassurance of good customer service to quickly resolve any issues they might have regarding their account. If an online gambling site provides quick responses via an array of communication channels – particularly via live chat features and social media accounts – it will score highly with us.
