Best Gambling Sites and Online Casinos in Europe

 

There are so many online casinos to choose from that the search for the best one can be intimidating. While most casinos are honest and fun places to play there are some dodgy or simply unprofessional ones that you better be aware of.

 

We are going to go through a few key points on how to choose online casinos in Europe. Szilvia Sultes, a Hungarian iGaming expert has helped us create a list of checkpoints. To read more about Szilvia's work click here.

 

Casino reviews

You would read reviews before booking a hotel or purchasing a product online and you should do the same before committing to an online casino. If you have friends who have been playing at a certain casino and only say good things about it, it is reasonable to think that it is a good site. However, there could still be some problems they just haven't experienced yet.

 

The best way to check the reputation of a casino is to read casino reviews from independent third-party review sites. For example, you can read a comprehensive review of 22bet with several evaluation areas discussed such as payment methods, game selection, usability and reliability. Each casino that you find on this review website's page accept players from Hungary and they all get a total review score so it is easy to compare one to another. At the bottom of each review, you will find customer reviews as well so you can see what fellow players think of the casino.

 

Licencing

An online casino needs to be licenced in order to be legit. Most casinos include their licencing information at the bottom of their landing page so you can double-check this information. Common gambling jurisdictions are Malta, Gibraltar and Curacao. These places have gambling regulators such as the Malta Gaming Authority (in the case of Malta). These authorities regularly audit casinos that they licence so you can be sure that the games are fair and the operations follow laws and regulations.

 

Some countries give out gambling licenses easily and without overseeing the casinos' operations properly. You should try to avoid casinos that are registered in Costa Rica or Panama as in these places you won't even find a contact address in case something goes wrong and you would need legal help.

 

Bonus offers

More often than not you will receive a welcome bonus when you sign up on a new casino's website. However, these bonuses are not always as good as they seem. Before accepting any offers, you should read the terms and conditions carefully. Sometimes the wagering requirement can be so strict that it is almost impossible to cash out anything.

  • For example, if you deposit HUF 10.000 and get a match deposit bonus of HUF 10.000 and it has a 50 times wagering requirement, it would mean that you have to play for 20.000 x 50 = HUF 1.000.000 before you can cash out anything.

Deposit and withdrawal options

The best gambling sites will give you lots of deposit options. These would usually include bank transfers, debit or credit card deposit, third party wallet deposits such as Neteller or Paypal and lately cryptocurrency payments. You should check if there is a handling fee for any of these methods and how high the limits are.

 

The withdrawal options are even more important. Some casinos will have unreasonably long periods of time you have to wait for withdrawals. Anything over 3 or 4 days is not so great. If you haven't withdrawn any money from a certain casino yet, they will ask for your ID card and proof of address to verify you are who you say you are and you live in the country you say you live in. This is a standard procedure to avoid fraud and money laundering and if the casino doesn't ask for these documents it is a red flag.

 

Conclusion

When looking for the best gambling sites in Europe you should start by reading casino reviews and making sure that the casino is licenced, preferably in a European jurisdiction. Always read the T&C of bonus offers and check the timeframes and limits of the different payment options.
