Top Online Casinos

Since playing, swearing at and subsequently losing at my first online casino (Ladbrokes) way back in 2004 - and in the course of my work as an iGaming affiliate and forum moderator at Casinomeister - I must have played and tested some 100 online casinos or so trying to find those that are best for me personally. For the most part I have to admit it's been a lot of fun. There have been some frustrating moments of course and one thing can't be disputed: financially, as is the way with most gamblers, I'm well down!

Thankfully, a long time ago I learned the hard way that you don't bet what you can't afford to lose and I mainly play for entertainment or for research purposes these days. Consequently, I've built up some valuable experience over that time and each online casino list you see on Top Online Casinos ["TOC"] website reflects that experience. I am hopefull that my experiences can help you find the right casino(s) a lot quicker than I did!

So the TOC website largely comprises "Top 10" casino lists for simplicity mainly and to make it easy to see who ranks best - in my opinion - at a glance. The database I have built to power toponlinecasinos.org now contains over 150 online casinos (I really have played way too much!) although not every casino makes a list here. Obviously, each list is based on my opinion, which in turn comes from those experiences mentioned above and that can be quite subjective: not every player gets the same service for various reasons.

Despite the subjectivity in each casino list, every online casino listed here at TOC at least provided me with the "minimum level" of service I'd expect: fair games and payouts when requested. If you want a starting point then check out the top casinos list - these are where I tend to play most and trust me when I say I am fussy about service levels! Of course, levels of service vary from csino to casino but in esssence, I feel happy to trust all the online casinos listed on TOC with my cash! Those I don't are long since consigned to the dustbin of bad experience and you won't find them here!

Things to watch for: If you are new to playing online casino games then there are a few pointers worth knowing that give you a fair idea of whether or not the online casinos you are thinking of joining are good ones. The licensing jurisdiction is one: Alderney, the Isle Of Man, UK, Gibraltar and Malta are all generally pretty good signs of a top casino. The software provider is another; IGT (aka Wagerworks), Microgaming, Cryptologic (aka Wagerlogic) and Novomatic are probablt familiar names to many of you and they will generally only licence their games to top casinos. Playtech and Realtime Gaming are less strict in this regard although among the not-so-goods there are still some very good casinos using these platforms. There is more information on spotting casino trust factors and even some help on spotting a rogue casino, of which there are a few about!
