A List of Some of the Most Reputable Online Casinos

One of the questions that people often ask me is - how do I know if an online casino is actually reputable?

That's a great question. To be honest, some online casinos are VERY reputable, while others should be avoided at all costs.

How do you know the difference?

Here are a few things that I look at when deciding whether or not an online casino is reputable:

1. The name behind the brand. Party Casino is run by Bwin.party, which is one of the largest online gaming groups in the world. Bodog Casino is run by Bodog, which has been around since 1994 and has one of the best reputations in the business. Find out which company is behind the brand that you are thinking about playing on. If you have never heard of the company, then you should probably find somewhere else to play.

2. The amount of time that they have been in business. If an online casino has been around for 5+ years, then I know that there is a good chance that they are a reputable outfit. Online casinos cost money to maintain, and if an online casino was not reputable, then they would slowly lose their customers and eventually go out of business. A lengthy track record always helps when determining whether or not an online casino is reputable.

3. Response times. Try sending the online casino an email - how fast do they respond? Does the online casino have a phone number posted on their site? Try giving them a call. If the online casino actually has real humans staffing their customer support lines, then that is a very good indication that they are reputable.

4. Reviews. Google is your best friend. Do a search on Google for something like "XYZ casino reviews". Are the reviews all negative? Do all of the reviews call the online casino a scam? Obviously that would be a great indication that the online casino should be avoided at all costs, regardless of the type of bonus offer that they want to give to you.


If you follow the rules listed above, then you will have a much better chance of landing with a reputable online casino establishment.
