How to pick a gambling site?

Finding a legal and safe site in the jungle of promotions, exaggerated descriptions, and operator bonus offers can get tricky. We think picking an operator to play with and trying your luck shouldn’t be hard.

We have highlighted topics you should consider when choosing the site for your gameplay.

You should always start by checking what type of online gambling your state allows. This way, you will stay aware of the rules and guidelines your state has approved regarding legal gambling.

Afterward, it is essential to find a trustworthy site. It is easier to pick a well-known site with a long history and plenty of online feedback.

Because of the impressive revenue, they can afford better promotions, bonuses, and games. It can also reward you if you wish to give a new site a chance.

More recent sites tend to have a more personal approach, sometimes an exciting niche, as they are motivated to grow and succeed.

Another critical factor is the bonuses and wagering requirements behind them. You must understand the value of offers before investing your funds in a site.

Don’t get fooled!

First, some scammers earn money from players who deposit to a fake casino or sportsbook site. A typical approach would be sending you an email with an incredible offer.

Afterward, they would guide you to their website, which looks similar to a real operator site. After depositing to the site, you will soon understand that the money is gone for good as there won’t be an option to gamble and have fun.

Suggestions from our end are to always look for weird email addresses sending the offer, do research online as there could be feedback shared about this particular site, and cross-check the website itself to make sure every detail is legit and there are no dead-end links.


Before joining an operator, check if the site is licensed and your state’s regulatory body issues that license. Read about ways to know if the site is licensed.

  Loyalty Program

If you are chasing a site where you wish to grow, earn points, and belong, you should pay attention to Loyalty Program offers. Some sites offer great opportunities to earn bonuses, free spins, and even points to spend on dining, shopping, hotels, and much more.

Bonus offers

It is vital to compare bonus offers and operators. There are plenty of options, so it is only standard to aim for the best. Firstly, the % of the bonus does not necessarily mean that the offer gets better as the number increases.

For example, a $100 casino bonus with a 15x wagering requirement is significantly better than a $300 bonus with a 30x playthrough. How come?

It is the playthrough/wagering requirements that make the difference. As a rule, usually, you have to play through the combined value of your bonus and deposit a predetermined number of times in less than 30 days.

So, in the scenario of a ”$300 bonus with a 30x,” you would have to wager your bonus and deposit 30 times in less than 30 days.

Overall, reading all T&Cs and rules that come with a promotion is crucial. This way, you will know exactly what you are aiming for and your chances of winning.

Customer Support

Knowing that a casino team is always there to help is also important. All casinos should have 24/7 customer care available as this means constant support in case of any questions and confusion.

Instead of having full-time customer care, some operators have fantastic FAQ pages. There are videos and superb guidelines that do the work as well.
