An Explanation of our Casino Rating System

Points System

Each casino starts at ten points, and for each category points are removed or added determined by hierarchies in that category.

Casino Software:

What is taken into account is the software’s selection of games (quantity), types of games (inventory), and the quality of its games. Also taken into consideration is how responsive the software provider is to player issues, concerns and feedback.
