What to look for when deciding on an online casino

As referenced, there are a number of things that you should look out for when you are deciding on which UK online casino to choose. Arguably the number one, most important thing is making sure that it is licensed and regulated by the UKGC (United Kingdom Gambling Commission) which is the governing body that makes sure all online casinos are first of all, fair.

The easiest way to tell if one is regulated by the UKGC or not is to check in the footer of the website whether the UKGC logo is there or not. Another essential factor is to make sure that the online casino has adequate payment options; the standard usually accepts major credit/debit cards as well as online merchant gateways such as PayPal or Neteller.

Another way to tell if the online casino is one of the best is to look at some of the slots and see who they are developed by. If any site does not feature slots by at least one of Microgaming, NetEnt, Playtech, Nektan, Novamatic or Bally, the chances are that it is quite a recent site so proceed with caution.

With mobile being the most preferred device to play online casino with, making sure the site of your choice is fully optimised for mobile play is essential. Wagering while on the move has become a major lifestyle choice and as a result, developers have worked hard to make sure each site works seamlessly, both on all smartphones.

 

Household names to choose from

If you are new to the world of online casino and don’t know which one to choose, the best thing to do is check out the ones which have been around for a while, because these are the ones that are usually owned by a parent company who owns a number of other sites.

William Hill, for example, a name that is synonymous with the world of online gaming and in fact, have a solid partnership with Playtech, who provide a significant proportion of their slot offering. This company also offers generous welcome packages and some of the best customer service in the industry.

BetVictor are widely regarded as having one of the best online casinos and were the first company to move solely online in the late 1990s. Ever since their operation has improved every year and they now have a prosperous partnership with revered slot developer Nektan. Their mobile casino site is also highly interactive and easy to navigate, making BetVictor a perfect choice for the novice online gambling enthusiast.
