Our mission: Delivering Fair Non-Gamstop Sites for UK Bettors
Let's dive deep into our purpose of providing you with the most accurate information about non-UK gambling sites.
What is our mission?
We understand that there are plenty of UK residents that are in search of reliable brands outside the reach of the gambling commission and gamstop. Each player has his own reasons to do so. Our mission is to bring awareness to websites with solid products that show respect to their player base.
Who does it involve?
Our writers and researchers, who hold significant expertise in the scene either as players or as ex-industry insiders (usually both), are always on the prowl for new offshore gambling sites that cater to UK bettors. After meticulous testing and getting in contact with the company, we added the brand to our website. Of course, we keep visiting it and playing even after the initial review to add any new features and update the rating.
What do we consider in our Reviewing Process?
Let’s see what goes on before a review gets uploaded. Naturally, since every brand is different, we do not follow a copy-paste approach. However, some things are standard procedure.
What are the factors we look for when we review a new site?
The first thing we do is a deep dive into the general terms & conditions to find out any weird terms or unfair fine print. Then, we do the same for the bonus T&Cs, along with the separate ones for every active promotion.
With the ‘boring’ stuff out of the way, we get right into action. An account is created, and we check the deposit options available at the cashier. At least one banking method from each type is tested, like debit cards, e-wallets and cryptos.
With a successfully topped-up account, it’s time to play. We place wagers on all products. Slots, live tables, fixed odds and live betting. While doing so, we take note of the website’s functionality & responsiveness, betting features and market uptime in in-play markets.
We do our tests both in the desktop version and mobile to make sure that the site is smooth for every type of user. Of course, we also contact the customer support team to see how quickly they respond and how knowledgeable they are about their products.
With all this said and done, it’s time for the last (and most important) step. The withdrawal. We try to get at least a successful win with every deposit method used so we can try them out for cash outs as well. This sums up pretty much the general checklist followed 99% of the time.
What is our approach to a scam site?
A site can be characterised as ‘scammy’ for many reasons. Not paying out winnings is just one of them. They might have contradicting or vague terms, settle bets wrongfully against their own rules, void bonuses without a significant reason and much more.
When something goes wrong during the process above, we try to clarify the issue with a CS agent. If we can’t find a solution, we send an email, expecting a clear answer. And if the matter is not promptly resolved, we designate the site as a scam and stop dealing with it altogether.
What do we do in case a site mistreats our readers?
This is one of the worst cases for a website like ours. We feel awful when a site that we enjoyed ends up creating a bad experience for one of our readers. So we do our best to help resolve the issue.
First, we ask both sides for an explanation. You should know that most of the time, in online casino disputes, it’s the players' fault for not reading the T&Cs of an offer or going against the rules.
That does not mean that online gambling brands are never in the wrong. So, if the player is right, but the site maintains its incorrect stance even after our involvement, we remove it from our lists and mark it as a scam.
How often do we update our sites and Rankings?
After a review is uploaded, we try to re-visit it for a full test at least once every 30 days. Then, we update the rankings if needed. Of course, we may come across new changes and/or features before that timeframe and do it sooner. That’s why we encourage users to contact us if they detect something out of place in a review.
Our Commitment to Player’s Enhanced Gambling Experience
As avid players ourselves, we are committed to serving only quality and legitimate content for all UK users out there. We are not going to sugarcoat any pill. Our reviews, while respectful to all brands, are fully unbiased.
With that being said, we want to make clear that not being under Gamstop’s & UKGC safety umbrella means that you should be as responsible as ever. Practice safe gambling habits, and set limits to your bankroll. Contact the brand’s customer service for a time-out whenever you feel that your sessions are no longer entertaining and you risk losing funds meant for overspending.
Last but not least, we would like you to share feedback with us. Your comments, either negative or positive, only help us optimise our content and deliver you only the best articles & guides.
