What We Offer

Proper reviews, seriously. We don’t have every casino in the world listed on our site and that’s with good reason. We run our own version of KYC here on casino brands (similar to what they do with players), and many don’t even pass the basic checks before we will consider putting them through our rigorous review measures. Of course, some are so bad they make our blacklist!

Outside of the reviews we try to put together guides to the various types of casino games, written by expert players of each type. Whilst these are mostly for beginners, even the seasoned veteran might find a few hints or tips. Then there’s our commercial team, which aims to hunt down every single casino bonus we can lay our gluttonous hands on!

Last but not least, we’ve hundreds of casino games you can try before you buy in demo mode.

The CasinoSource Mission Statement

We solemnly swear we will bring you honest opinions and researched facts on casino play around the world. No hype, no gimmicks, no hard sell.
The casino sites we recommend shall be the same ones we would recommend to a close friend and play at ourselves – no exceptions. If a casino fails to meet our standards, they will be dropped. If their behaviour is particularly egregious – they will be added to our blacklist. We will never sacrifice our integrity in this regard, unlike some of our competitors who will offer positive reviews in exchange for an easy pay cheque. This isn’t, and never will be, the CasinoSource way.

We Review All The Latest On:

At CasinoSource, we take our reviews very seriously and there are a number of factors we take into account when putting a casino through the wringer. We have combined decades of experience in the industry which allows us to properly evaluate every facet of an operator, whether that be an industry veteran or a new online casino. Among the features we inspect are:

Real casino reviews

New casinos pop up all the time, and there are plenty to choose from if you are planning on starting your online casino journey. But while there is a large quantity to choose from, that does not mean the quality is always there.
First and foremost, we only ever review or work with fully licensed online casinos – so if they appear in our top casino sites list you can be sure they are safe to play at. However, just because they have obtained a license does not necessarily mean they are up to scratch. We’ve often called out the negatives of an online casino, and unlike some of our competitors, we won’t accept money in exchange for a positive review.
Real casino reviews


Here at CasinoSource, your safety is of paramount importance to us. We will point blank refuse to work with or review any online casino platform that is not fully regulated or hold an official license from trusted bodies such as the UKGC or MGA. Legislation for gambling is constantly evolving and changing, and thankfully we have writers and reviewers scattered all around the globe who have their fingers on the pulse with the latest news and law changes.
As mentioned previously, we run stringent KYC tests on all of the operators we work with so you can rest assured that if they want to feature in our exclusive ranks, they have to have implemented the highest level of safety measures for you, the player.

User experience

One of the most important features for online casino players is the user experience. This can range across a number of elements including the overall design, how easy it is to navigate, and the overall useability of any given platform. Some online casinos promise a lot, look the part and seem to have all the boxes ticked but if you can’t get from game to game, deposit with your preferred payment method, check your account settings and access it all on the move then you are not getting what you want.
We’ve done hundreds of reviews, so we have really seen it all when it comes to online casinos. Thankfully, all of our experts and reviewers are players and while there is an element of subjectivity when it comes to preferences, we certainly can spot when something is not right, difficult to use or just downright bad.
User experience


Who doesn’t love a good casino welcome bonus? We love them! Bonus offers are a great way to be welcomed to a new online casino. They can provide you with some funds to help you boost your initial bankroll or free spins for one of their latest slot game releases. No matter how big or small, casino bonuses shouldn’t be turned down and you can get the latest and best offers by signing up right here through CasinoSource.
Of course, not all bonuses are created equally and in our opinion, some are definitely better than others. In all of our reviews, we will tell you exactly how good a certain brand’s bonus is, if there are any hoops you have to jump through and all the nitty-gritty details you need to know before committing to giving them your business.

Payment details

Nowadays, having a variety of payment methods available is key for any online casino. Players have a variety of reasons for choosing a specific banking option whether that be Visa, PayPal, Paysafecard or Skrill.
When reviewing an online casino, we will check each payment method that has available, what the minimum deposit or maximum withdrawal is, are there any associated fees, and most importantly, how long does withdrawing your winnings take. Anything that can make it seamless as it should be is detailed and explained in our casino reviews in whatever country you reside in.

You’ll find the usual stuff like opening hours, chat methods and telephone numbers but we personally shop these services and if they don’t come up to scratch then it will be detailed in our reviews.

Casino Source FAQ’s

Of course! We do partner with operators and collect a fee for those who sign up through our links, and we've always been transparent about that. However, we didn't get to where we are today by uploading dishonest reviews. Rest assured, if a casino isn't up to our high standards or needs to improve on certain things, we will absolutely highlight them in our reviews.
Here at we are nearly into our third decade of reviewing and comparing online casinos across the globe. Since 2003 we have trod the boards of the conferences, the seminars, the booms and booms of the online gaming space and amassed a wonderful team of industry experts and casino players to be confident of what we do and why we do it.
We're always looking for new and enthusiastic people to join the team here across a variety of roles including content, marketing, design, operations and product. If you think you would be a good fit here, and want to join a fast-paced and innovative work environment, get in touch using the contact form below.
Every element of every offer listed here on from our network of Casino partners has been tried and tested and is accompanied by the terms and conditions applicable. We go further in explaining exactly how they are claimed and used successfully so there are no unforeseen frustrations plus we don’t work with black market or illegal unregulated casinos so you can be sure of safe and secure interactions at all times.
We never charge our audience for anything we do at and never will. The costs for providing our services are compensated by our network of casino partners via the online user traffic we send to them from time to time from our website. We refuse to bend when it comes to the standards we set and have removed, blacklisted and rightly highlighted poorly run casinos many times for just this reason.
