The majority of reviews sites and gambling information portals are in fact reputable sites that are generally very helpful and contain factual information. Granted, some of the sites that you may have visited could contain inaccurate information that you know for sure isn’t true. This could be down to several different reasons.
Perhaps the site doesn’t update its information regularly, which is why some of the facts could become dated. There may even be some sites where the information is basically never updated, so players will inevitably spot discrepancies when cross-referencing the reviews with other websites.
The best thing to do if you are looking to find out about a particular online casino is to read as many reviews as possible and a clear picture will begin to emerge. Most reviews will contain the proper facts and the latest information regarding the promotional offers and the review site may even have the stamp of a certain organisation for being recognised as a secure information portal, but this stamp from certain trusted organisations isn’t always going to be there.
Most online casino review sites contain information about every area of the online casino, such as who owns it. This might reveal that the operators own a string of trusted online casinos or they may be a new company that is just staring out. The reviews also tend to point out where the casino is licensed and there will also be information on the welcome bonus and perhaps brief details on other promotions that might currently be running.
Other things that you are likely to find out from a review are the types of currencies that are accepted and the different banking methods that the casino has, including the types of credit and debit cards they accept, whether players can deposit/withdraw using e-wallets/prepaid cards etc. and one of the main things almost every review will pick up on is the type of software that is used and whether it is a downloadable casino or a non-downloadable Flash casino.
A review will also explain a little bit about the type of customer service that the casino provides and will reveal whether or not they offer live chat or just email and phone support. You may even be lucky enough to get the actual contact details and address, which is sometimes handy for future reference.
The reviews are generally quite short and contain all of the vital information that a player could need. Many of the reviews now also contain screenshots of the various sections of the casino and its games, which gives the players a glimpse of what the casino looks like.
