Wednesday Nov 25, 2020

 The UK has a licensed and online casino industry which makes it perfectly legal for players to enjoy real money online casino games. UK players have an abundance of online casinos to choose from but because of the many options available, a lot of players struggle to find out which is the best online casino for them.

 Our guest author Jordan Carry shares five steps that will help you find a great online casino that takes care of all your gaming needs. To find out more about Jordan Carry, click here.


 Licensed Casino

 While the UK has a licensed online casino industry, it is important to point out that there are a number of unlicensed operators who are also targeting players in the UK. This is why it is important for players to always take the time to double check licensing information.

 Players need to check if the online casino they want to play at is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) which is the gambling regulator in the UK. Do note that most UKGC licensed casinos tend to clearly display their licensing information at the bottom of the homepage.

 If you cannot verify that the playcasino is licensed by the UKGC, you should probably give it a pass. This is because if you face a dispute with the online casino for some reason and cannot resolve it, you have recourse to the UKGC to solve your dispute.

 Welcome Bonus

 Due to the fierce competition in the UK online casino market, most online casinos tend to offer very attractive welcome bonuses to new players. If you are looking for an online casino, always look for one that has a great welcome bonus.
 Most online casinos tend to offer either a no deposit bonus or a match deposit bonus. A no deposit bonus is a free money or free spins bonus that does not require players to deposit any real money of their own. A match deposit bonus will see the casino match a player’s deposit bonus based on a specified percentage. Most online casinos tend to offer a 100% match deposit bonus but some casinos can scale this to 150% to 200%.

 Multi-Vendor Games

 Look for an online casino that has multi-vendor games as this gives you a lot more options when it comes to gaming options. If you end up playing at a single vendor powered casino, you have a lack of variety as well as a limited number of games to play.

 The top online casinos partner with some of the biggest gaming developers in the industry and usually advertise this on their homepage or in the gaming lobby. The top gaming developers to watch out for including Netent, Microgaming, Quickspin, Playtech, Play N Go, Betsoft and Evolution Gaming.

 Deposits and Withdrawals

 UK players need to check out the list of banking options on offer before signing up at any online casino. Some players prefer traditional options like Visa/MasterCard and bank transfers. Some players look for e-wallets like Neteller and Skrill. Do note that the UKGC has banned credit cards at gambling sites.
 Almost all deposits are processed instantly but withdrawal timeframes depend on which banking option you decide to go with. If the online casino has not specified withdrawal times on its banking page, you can get in touch with customer support and find out more information.

 Terms and Conditions

 Most players do not take the time to read through the long list of terms and conditions because it can be boring and tedious to do so. However, we advise you to take a few minutes to go through the terms and conditions before signing up at any online casino.

 What you want to watch out for are the wagering requirements concerning the welcome bonus and on-going bonuses for existing players. You also want to find out more about withdrawal processing times, security and fairness, and the privacy policy. If you find that the wagering requirements are over 40x, you should probably look for another online casino that has a lower wagering requirement.


 While these 5 steps are key steps in selecting an online casino, you should also check to see if the online casino is mobile-friendly, has 24/7 live chat support and has self-exclusion tools in place to allow its players to gamble responsibly.
