About us: How We Evaluate Australian Online Casinos
It seems like a new Australian internet casino pops up every single day in 2018. So how do you pick which one to gamble at? Players beware, not all online casino operators are playing by the rules!
Several years ago, a few longtime gamblers got together in order to create a definitive guide to Internet gambling for Aussies. With nearly 80% of Australians gambling, we recognised a need for a thorough guide to playing online. Over time, we've expanded our operation in order to rate online casinos. From the technology and software to gameplay and security, our review process is second to none.
To understand how we appraise casinos and decide on whether to recommend a site, please see below.
Our casino review process
What makes an online casino great? Fair gameplay? Quick payouts? Secure Internet connections? Variety of games? We think a top online casino should feature all of these things!
Reviewing and recommending the best casinos for online gambling takes time, expertise, and dedication. It can be a lengthy and tedious process, and one that's never ending as new casinos open every month. We also reevaluate casinos on a regular basis to assess their ongoing operation.
When evaluating casinos, security is our No.1 concern. If you gamble online with real money, you're required to enter private information such as a bank account or credit card numbers. To validate your identity, you'll also have to provide proof of residency.
Our team routinely tests the security of online casinos by viewing SSL certificates.
Rogue casino operators have been known to stack the odds of pokies and other online games. These casinos are often based in countries where there is no online gambling jurisdiction or oversight such as Costa Rica.
We perform tests on real cash casino sites to determine whether fair play is being offered as compared to expected random results. To receive our recommendation, the casino must obtain eCOGRA's Safe & Fair Seal of Approval. eCOGRA certifies that games are fair, deposits are safe, and the casino is operating in an honest and responsible manner.
