How We Rate Bookmakers

Publish Date: 19/07/2022
Fact checked by: Rosie McCarthy

We don’t just conjure up our bookie ratings out of thin air. Believe it or not, we actually put in a lot of hard work figuring out which bookies and casino sites you should be playing at. Don’t believe us? Well, we’ve taken the time to walk you through the basic process of how we judge these gambling sites. Here’s what we do!

Security & licences
Keeping you and your bets safe

The last thing you want to do is to sign up to some rogue bookie and have them run off with your cash. This is why we only recommend bookies and online casinos who are fully licensed and regulated. Each of our reviews will establish that the gambling site is licensed, and if it isn’t, then we’ll give it a good kicking!

All of this is important because you’re playing with your own money when you bet on sports and play casino games. Sadly there are a handful of dodgy betting sites out there who are more than happy to rip you off. Thankfully, our reviews are here to show you which bookies and casinos are safe and which you shouldn't touch with a barge pole!

Payment methods
Funding your bets

Okay, you’re probably not that interested in talking about payment methods, but you’re going to need to know how you’re putting your bets down. You’ll know that betting sites will often let you use a bunch of different cards, ewallets, prepaid cards and so on. So our reviews will walk you through what’s available at each site so that you can see which is right for you.

Plus we’ll happily tell you which bookies and casinos are good at processing payments quickly and we’ll warn you about which gambling sites do dastardly things like charge you fees for moving your cash around.

Bonus offers
Find your perfect bonus

There aren’t too many things more enjoyable than putting down a winning bet with a good bonus behind you. So we’re on a mission to find those sports bonuses and casino deals that’ll take your bets to the next level.

While pretty much every gambling site under the sun has some kind of bonus, not all of these special offers are ‘special’. This is why we’ll carefully claw through the small print of these deals so that you can see which are good value and which should be lobbed into the bin.

Game & betting market variety
What’s on offer?

Each gambling website will offer you lots of different ways for you to try your luck. Some might serve up a handful of sports bets and leave it there. Others will feature thousands of pre-match and live sports betting odds and serve up lots of casino games on the side.

So our reviews will tell you exactly what you’ll find on each betting site. From massive sports like football and rugby, all the way through to Gaelic football and beyond, you’ll get to see exactly what you could be betting on!
