How We Create Online Casino Reviews – Our 30-Point System
Top10-CasinoSites has many callings in the online casino space, whether it's going over the latest casino games, breaking down complex gaming concepts, recommending the best operators for your home country, or offering you free-to-play versions of your favourite games. Our bread and butter remains one thing though, and that’s creating the best online casino reviews you’ll come across on the web.
How do we achieve that? With a comprehensive review system that goes into the nitty gritty of what makes a casino great, or terrible. Of course, we never had the system ready-made; rather, we’ve developed it over years of casino reviews, adding elements, checks, and tests bit by bit, with each addition making our system more thorough than its last iteration.
All of our previous work has culminated in a review system that consists of 30 different reviewable elements – which is how we've successfully created the best online casino reviews on the block!
The means for each casino, we carry out what’s essentially a 30-point check, making sure we’ve reviewed the nooks and crannies of each site. We think it’s important for our readers to be informed on all these different aspects before they go ahead and try things out for themselves. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say!
Having said that, we’re sure at least some of you may be curious as to what our process is behind the scenes – how we arrive at our conclusions and what these exact 30 aspects involve. Perhaps you’re yearning for a review of our review process – a metareview if you will – and if that’s the case, then you’re in luck, because this is exactly what that is!
Security and Legitimacy (15% of Global Score)
The security and legitimacy of an online casino is paramount and essential for it to even blip on our review radar. Because of that, we consider it a make it or break factor in the grand scheme of things.
As a matter of principle, we never recommend casinos which give us the slightest indication of a lack of security or legitimacy. That’s done by looking at 5 major indicators for this section – and the first 5 points on our 30 point system!
Casino Gaming Experience (20% of Global Score)
What makes our favourite casinos what they are, other than the gaming experience they provide?
This factor is perhaps one of the most important among the ones we've listed in this article, and involves everything from which games are available, which game providers the casino supports, the user’s experience on the site, and a tonne of other small aspects that all add up to the larger whole.
It’s important to keep in mind that for many of these points, not doing particularly well on one side of the scale can be offset by a stellar performance on the other. That means that while it’s good to look at each point individually, we also recommend you considering the gaming experience as a whole when assessing a casino site and comparing it to another.
Casino Bonuses and Rewards (20% of Global Score)
The fact is, we all love free stuff. So what’s better than free casino stuff? That’s exactly what the best casino bonuses and rewards offer you, but of course you already knew that! Whether its free spins, a matched deposit bonus, a surprise reward from the mystery wheel, or any other reward a casino can conjure up, there are so many different types of promotions up for grabs.
Deposits, Withdrawals, & Finances (15% of Global Score)
While playing at an online casino is all fun and games, at the end of the day, you need to know that the operator in question takes their responsibility with your hard-earned cash seriously, and treats your funds with the appropriate care.
Apart from that, you want the whole process to be smooth and easy to manage. It’s no fun being stuck trying to get funds in and out of your account, so everything should run as efficiently as possible, while remaining secure.
Customer Care (20% of Global Score)
We’d like to think that with all of the above considerations, you won’t have any issues at the casinos we recommend. Just the same, we think it’s super important to check a casino’s support and customer care options whenever reviewing. This way, in the off chance that there is an issue, you'll know that you are in a good, safe, and caring hands to get it resolved as quickly as possible!
Credibility (10% of Global Score)
There’s something to be said for an online casino’s reputation. This factor is another make-it-or-break-it consideration for us simply because real user reviews matter, and if a plethora of people are consistently rating a casino poorly, then that’s something to notice.
Phew, that’s it! That’s our comprehensive, 30-point, casino reviews process, laid out in detail so that you too can verify and scrutinise a casino site for yourself – that is, if we haven’t got to it ourselves first! Now that you’re armed with the knowledge of our review process, we hope you find exactly what you’re looking for!
