ONLINE CASINO RANKING GUIDELINES
|Casino Rankings - How Do We Rank Internet Casinos?
|With over 2000 online casinos in the Internet nowadays we try choosing the most
reliable, tested by players, licensed and approved by other third party
Only the best online casinos licensed by recognized casino
licensing boards are listed on CasinoSTOP.co.uk. The online casinos should provide
prompt and efficient 24/7 support (by email, live chat and toll free phones) for players from United Kingdom.
UK Gambling Commission's Approval
We only list online casinos that have active licenses in Great Britain from the UK Gambling Commission. The Gambling Commission was set up under the Gambling Act 2005 to regulate commercial gambling in Great Britain. The Act is in effect from 1 November 2014. Most online casinos are also hold Remote Gambling licences from the Government of Gibraltar.
All gambling operations in Gibraltar require licensing under the "Gambling Act 2005".
Independently Reviewed Payout Percentages
Casino games must be of a high quality and payouts must be comparable or better
than the payouts of terrestrial casinos. Casino payouts should be reviewed by
independent auditing firms (PriceWaterHouseCoopers, eCOGRA, iTech Labs or Online Players Association). The games
should be provided by 3rd party
gaming software manufacturers who and only who sets the odds of the games. Most popular online gaming software providers
monitor their partner casino stats and provide extra protection for players.
Secure And Convenient Payment Options
To get listed online casino must
perform secure transactions and implement corresponding fraud protection systems.
Multiple deposit methods as Credit/Debit Cards, NETeller,
UKash, EzyPay, ECO Card and Bank Wires should be available. Withdrawal procedures for
players must be clearly stated on the
casino website. Note that established online casinos will have taken the time and effort to build up
relationships with the payment processors to deliver a wide range of payment and deposit options.
And one of the most important criterion for us is players opinion. We monitor gambling forums,
gambling news sites and other casino ranking portals and magazines where real players
vote for their favorite casinos
and add comments concerning their gambling experiences.
Extra Certification and Approval
There is no central body which regulates the online casino industry as a whole. Nevertheless, there are some countries (including UK and
other European countries) that have begun
legalizing online gambling. Until such time as the industry is regulated worldwide, some independent bodies have been formed to
protect players and monitor
the industry. eCOGRA is one such body which awards online casinos with certificates (seals) of approval if they meets specific strict
criteria. These criteria include ensuring the fairness and 100% randomness of the games, that customer support is decent,
and that casino payout systems are totally legitimate. eCOGRA's "Play it Safe" seal presents the online casino or poker site with
a token of approval and helps out in the case of dispute between the player and the casino – in the form of arbitration
