About Us

Welcome to TopRatedCasinos.co.uk, the UK’s leading online casino comparison resource. Our mission is to make it easy for you to find the ideal online casino for you in September 2021, and we’re keen to fill you in on how we do it.

What We Do

Straightforward Online Casino Comparison
First and foremost, TopRatedCasinos is an online casino comparison website. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to find a casino that suits your tastes and needs, whatever your preferences. Whether you’re looking for the best slots selection on the market, casinos that accept PayPal, top-of-the-line live casino experiences, or a wide range of classic table games, we can point you in the right direction.
Thorough Research and Regular Updates
All of our content is heavily researched and polished before publication, ensuring everything on-site is accurate and informed by the most trustworthy names operating in and around the industry. We feature regularly updated leaderboards of the UK’s best casinos, handpicked by our expert review team. The best of the best are featured on our homepage, while others may be more prominent on feature-specific pages, such as our exhaustive list of the best slots sites available in the UK.
Dedication to Responsible Gambling
We’re dedicated to promoting the gambling industry in an ethical and responsible way, and we work hard to ensure our content is realistic, pragmatic, and neutral. In addition, we’re committed to raising awareness about the risk factors and warning signs of problem gambling and addiction, along with promoting the organisations and charities working to help affected individuals and families.

How We Do It

Our team of expert reviewers works tirelessly to uncover and highlight the best sites available. To do this, we conduct detailed reviews of every casino we come across. Our rigorous process ensures no stone is left unturned, covering the full gamut of features and factors that define the casino experience. Here’s a quick breakdown of the major areas we assess whilst reviewing the top UK casinos:

  • You will never find a site listed on TopRatedCasinos that doesn’t hold an operating licence from the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC). Licensed operators are required to offer a baseline of quality and customer protection that’s absolutely vital to a positive online casino experience, with the UKGC on-hand to deliver severe sanctions for any sites that contravene their licensing requirements. The regulatory framework is designed to ensure that all licensed operators offer fair and regularly audited games, along with SSL encryption for all customer transactions. Not only that, but licensees are held to strict ethical standards and are compelled to follow up-to-date guidelines on advertising, responsible gambling practices, and more.
  • The bread and butter of a top casino is its games library. Whether the site in question is a pure-play slots specialist, an all-rounder offering everything from sportsbooks to VR live casino, or an up-and-coming site with an expanding catalogue, we zero in on the breadth and quality that each casino offers and recommend them accordingly.
  • The online gambling industry is packed out with software developers, all offering their own particular qualities and specialisms. As we review a casino, we take a close look at the developers they’ve partnered with to assess the site’s general sense of quality and innovation. Some of the biggest and brightest names to look out for include NetEnt, Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, Pragmatic Play, and Play’n GO. We don’t limit ourselves to exclusively valuing the largest studios, however, ensuring we assess the quality offered by a developer regardless of how established they are in the market.
  • One of the biggest draws of any casino is its bonus offering, including its welcome bonus and its ongoing promotions for returning players. Bonuses can be a great way to get acquainted with a new casino, enjoy some of your favourite games on the house, and even potentially take home some winnings. We pay close attention to the terms and conditions, too, as they can have a significant impact on what you can and can’t do with the offer. If the bonus’s wagering requirements make withdrawing any bonus-related winnings unlikely, we’ll note as much in the review. Likewise, if a free spins offer is only applicable to substandard slot titles, we’ll highlight that too. Time limits, winnings caps, game weighting, and more are also factored into our commentary on a casino’s bonus offers.
  • As we explore a casino’s offering, we pay close attention to how the site has been designed and laid out. We’re interested in aesthetics, of course, but the user experience takes precedence here. Is the site easy to navigate? Can you easily filter the games selection to find exactly what you’re after? How quick and easy is the sign-up process? All of this and more is factored in as we review the UK’s best casino sites.
  • In ‘September, a mobile-optimised website is the bare minimum we expect from a top online casino. If a website doesn’t adapt effectively to the small screen, has poor responsiveness to touchscreen controls, or otherwise struggles to deliver the same experience as the desktop version, it’s tough to recommend. An increasing number of casino operators have delivered native apps, and we also take the time to download and play with these if they’re offered. Generally speaking, an app will provide a more tailored mobile experience, but we don’t just assume that’s the case.
  • There are plenty of payment options out there, all with their own benefits and drawbacks. The more cashier options a casino offers, the better. Not only do we pay close attention to which methods are available, but we also take a look at how quickly you can expect deposits and withdrawals to go through with each payment type, any limits on deposits and withdrawals that ought to be considered, and whether certain methods are excluded from bonus eligibility.
  • If you’re ever in need of assistance, it’s important that you can get it quickly and accurately. An online casino’s customer service offering is deeply important to us – rest assured that we take a close look at which options are available, whether you can get a response around the clock, and how quickly you can expect an issue to be dealt with by a casino’s in-house team. Speed is important, but so is quality –– we love to see customer support that finds accurate and fair resolutions whilst valuing the customer and taking issues seriously.
  • As online casino fans ourselves, we place a lot of stock in the community’s sentiment around each operator. If a site has developed a poor reputation––or a great one––we take the time to investigate why that is and ensure that our readers are clued up.
  • With so many casinos and gambling sites to choose from, offering unique features is a great way to stand out from the competition. We pay close attention to each site’s individual identity and unique features and weigh up how effective those characteristics are in this competitive landscape.

How Do We Make Our Money?

TopRatedCasinos is completely free to use. We’re big believers in transparency, and we know that our discerning readers will notice we don’t advertise on-site and might wonder how we generate our revenue. When you use our site to compare the best casinos around, unearth the one that’s right for you, and click through to the site in question, we receive a commission from the operator for steering you in their direction. 

We don’t tailor our reviews to the benefit of particular partners, or seek to mislead you about which site will give you the best experience – first and foremost, our mission is to ensure you find a casino that ticks all of your boxes. We only recommend sites that we know are licensed, safe, and packed with quality, and we pride ourselves on the trust our users place in us to cut through the noise and identify the UK’s very best casinos.
