Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the tools you need to make the best choices and to have the very best online casino experience possible according to your particular circumstances. And here, on this page, we will tell you a little about who we are and how we go about achieving that goal.
Who Are We?
We are a group of friends who, first and foremost, love online casino gambling. We have dozens of years of experience on both sides of the table at both online and land-based casinos: as players and enthusiasts on one side, and as casino workers, dealers, programmers, and marketers on the other.
To be more specific, we are:
And What Can We Do for You?
We can provide you with the information you need to make the best choices to enjoy the optimal online casino gambling experience. We described the various types of information very briefly at the top of this page; here we describe them in some depth.
We do not describe every single online casino in the world. That would be a waste of our time and yours. Instead, we focus on the BEST online casinos, those that would actually be worth your while to visit and join and play in.
For that select group of best online casinos, we provide the most accurate and up-to-date information on their games, their bonuses, their platforms, their banking options, their customer service, their security safeguards, their licensing and auditing credentials, and any special features they have to offer.
With that information at your fingertips, you can choose the best online casino for your individual needs and desires at this particular moment.
Online Casino Games
When we evaluate an online casino’s selection of games, we look at two things: quality and quantity.
Casino game quality has many aspects. These include excitement and suspense, graphics and sound, easy-to-understand rules, smooth game play, good odds of winning, and good payouts.
There are also the “fluffy” games like bingo, lottery, keno and scratch cards. And then you can find even more variety within each category of casino games.
The online-slots category, for example, includes 3-reel slots, 5-reel slots, 6-reel slots, video slots, progressive slots, and fruity slots. The same goes for varieties of blackjack games, video poker games, and everything else. It takes both high game quantity and high game quality for a casino to earn a top-ranked review at Slots Play Casinos.
Welcome Bonuses and Our SPC Exclusive Offers
One of the first things a new player notices, or looks for, in a new casino is its Welcome Bonus. This is the bonus cash or free spins that a casino will give to a new player to boost their wallet, giving them more playing time at the casino. It is their hope that the player will be favourably impressed by the casino and will stick around depositing and playing more. So the Welcome Bonus is very important to both sides.
On every SPC casino review page, you will see the casino’s welcome offers displayed on the left side of the page. Note that many of the casinos we recommend have an “Exclusive” banner in the corner of the offer. These are truly exclusive offers that we have negotiated on your behalf. They are available ONLY to new players who come to the casino via Slots Play Casino.
Therefore, it is imperative that you click on the offer here at SPC rather than going to the casino site and looking for it there. This way, your click will carry a special code identifying you as an SPC reader eligible for the exclusive offer. The exclusives are great offers – it’s very worthwhile to click on these to join the casino of your choice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Casino Game Providers
For the most part, online casinos do not create their own games. Rather, they get them from casino game developers. There are many casino game developers in the world: some are excellent, some are less good, and some are no good at all. The casinos recommended by Slots Play Casinos get all their games from excellent developers only, including the very top online casino game developers such as:
It stands to reason that if you want great online casino games, you need great online casino game providers. Slots Play Casinos will help you find them.
Some people like to play casino games on their desktop computers, others on their laptops. Some play on their tablet, others on their phone.
There are those who play on one platform on weekdays and a different one on weekends, and those who play on their desktop in the morning and on their phone in the evening. Whatever! The top online casinos are optimized for all possible platforms. Those are the casinos that give you the ultimate freedom of choice, and those are the casinos that we recommend at SPC.
Casino Banking Methods
If you want to play online casino games for real money, you need a way to deposit some money into your casino account and a way to withdraw your money from your casino account. We like to see casinos that offer a variety of banking methods, including credit cards and debit cards, e-wallets, vouchers, and electronic bank transfers, while bearing in mind that different methods are available in different regions. What is popular in Australia might be unheard of in Canada and vice-versa.
As far as security is concerned, you don’t have to worry because we have done all the worrying for you. We make sure that every banking option at every casino that appears in Slots Play Casinos uses state-of-the-art security technologies and state-of-the-art security procedures and protocols to safeguard your money and your personal and financial data. If you play at an SPC-recommended casino, you can enjoy the games with utmost peace of mind.
Casino Licensure and Auditing
Every Casino Review at Slots Play Casino will tell you, up near the top of the page, what type of license the casino holds. It is extremely important to play only in a casino that is licensed. Playing in an unlicensed casino is just looking for trouble. Moreover, your casino must be licensed by a legitimate and respected licensing authority. A license from Jack’s Homemade Casino Licenses just won’t cut it. The legitimate and respected casino licensing authorities include:
- Curacao Gaming Control Board
- Saint Kitts and Nevis Gaming Board
- Kahnawake Gaming Commission
- Malta Gaming Authority
- Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission
- UK Gambling Commission
If you play in a casino with one of these licenses, you know you are in good hands.
Then there are the auditing bodies. There are several good organizations out there: Technical Systems Testing (TST), Certified Fair Gambling (CRG), eCogra, CDS, and RNG just to name a few. During our years of experience actually working for online casinos we saw these auditors in real-time action. When they say they audit casinos regularly, let me tell you….they do.
They come to the casino offices and sit for at least a week going over everything, and I do mean everything, with a fine-toothed comb. Promotions, winners, payouts, withdrawals – they keep the casino very honest when it comes to the players’ money. They also act as mediators if you have a problem that can’t be worked out directly with the casino. Yes, these are the good guys in white hats protecting your money and making sure you have a fair and enjoyable time at the casino of your choice.
This is a very critical area for us at Slots Play Casinos – we give a lot of weight in our recommendations to the quality of customer service offered by the casino. Believe it or not, some casinos only have customer service available during THEIR work hours. This assumes you can figure out where they’re located and can determine their time zone and therefore, work hours. Some casinos have only email contact available. We find these situations unacceptable in these days of electronic communication that is capable of giving answers in, literally, seconds.
The casinos we recommend will minimally have customer service available 24/7 by telephone, email and live chat. Some have other communication platforms at their fingertips, like whatsapp and skype – we applaud using these options as well. Some have toll-free numbers from several or many countries across the globe also available. And some have customer service available in a variety of languages. All these additions are what’s called: going the extra mile. We like these casinos!
One Note for Transparency’s Sake….
We are not supported financially, or in any other way, by any particular casino or game provider. True, when you sign up at a casino via our site, we do receive some compensation from the casino. But this is even across all casinos and we do NOT recommend one casino over another because they pay us more.
Our loyalty is to you – our readers. If you’re happy with our recommendations, you’ll come back to us often to get updates. We hope you will even recommend our site to your friends. And that is our reward – matching up the best people we know to the best casinos we know.
