Do you know how many online gambling websites are online? We would be surprised if you did that. In fact, we would be surprised if ANYONE does this. There are thousands of them, and we very much doubt that anyone has ever bothered to count them all.
It would be a pointless exercise anyway, as the number just keeps growing. It’s been over 20 years since the first gambling sites appeared, and there are still new ones being launched all the time.
As avid gamblers, we love the fact that we have so many choices of where we can play and bet. However, it creates a problem – especially for those who are new to online gambling. How exactly should you decide which of the many pages to use?
One solution is to just pick a website randomly, but that’s not a very scientific approach. And there’s a chance you’re joining a website that’s completely wrong for you. Or, worse, one you can not trust.
A better approach is to read our reviews of our gambling website. Unlike many other reviews that you find online, ours are actually genuine and not glorified ads. We do not just write about how wonderful a website is; We offer a balanced overview of exactly what they have to offer. We look at the negative aspects as well as the positive aspects, and we go into a lot of details.
You can find a complete list of our current reviews below. Further down the page, we have more information about our reviews and how we create them. There is also some advice on choosing the right gambling website for you, and some advice on online gambling in general.
About Our Reviews
How long do you think it takes to write a rating on a gambling site? One hour? Two hours? more?
It actually takes LESS time. There are tons of gambling website reviews on the internet and we would bet that most of them were put together in half an hour. If that’s the other one. Not surprisingly, this means that they are not very good.
The unfortunate truth is that the majority of reviews on the gambling website are essentially useless. They usually only provide some basic information, most of which can be found easily on the gambling website itself.
Worse, this information is often outdated. We see many reviews written before AGES and have never been updated to reflect changes. That really does not help anyone, does it?
It will usually be a big game about how amazing a website is, too, and maybe even a short list of reasons why you should sign up. Because that’s the whole purpose of these reviews. They are not produced to give you useful information, but simply to convince you to sign up and make a deposit.
That’s what we meant earlier when we used the phrases “glorified advertising”. That is all that most gambling website reviews are in our opinion. They are simply put together as quickly as possible to earn a few dollars.
The Review Process
The whole purpose of BoxySlots.com is to provide our readers with all the information they may wish to know about gambling. We are especially committed to helping you find the best sites to bet and play, which is why we make sure our reviews tell you everything you need to know.
We are really proud of our reviews. It takes a lot of time and effort and we really believe that we offer a useful service for online gamers. We’re going beyond WAY information about the basics, which are easy to find anyway. We help you to understand exactly what is on offer and what kind of overall experience you can expect.
The process for creating such high quality reviews is tedious. Here’s a quick overview of how we handle things.
The initial research we do is relatively simple. We look at things like how long a site has been, where it’s located, and who it belongs to. We also check if they have the appropriate gambling licenses and which authority issued those licenses.
An important part of this step is evaluating the track record of a website. Although our reviews are based primarily on our own experience with websites, it is also important for us to determine what kind of reputation they have in the online gambling community as a whole. This is something that we usually mention in our reviews, it also contradicts what we found for ourselves.
Open an Account
Our ratings are obviously aimed at people who want to sign up for gambling sites. It is therefore perfectly logical that we cover the process of opening an account. This requires that we go through the process itself, so that’s exactly what we do.
The key points to consider at this stage are what details are required and how easy (or not!) The entire process is.
Check Key Details
Once we have an active account on a website, we begin to examine the basic details that we know our readers will know. This includes details of which deposit methods can be used, which sign up bonuses are available, if there is a mobile app, and all sorts of other things.
This is usually a simple step as most of this information is easy to find. Sometimes we have to dig a bit deeper to get everything we need.
Make a Deposit
It is this step and the following ones that really make the difference to the quality and depth of our reviews.
We’re pretty sure many reviews are written by people who have never used the sites they’re checking, which is why they’re often so easy. On the other hand, we make sure that we extensively test the websites we review.
For this we need a funded account, so this step is essential. It also allows us to explain how the deposit process works in our reviews. This is something most people want to know, and we take this opportunity to look for “hidden” deposit fees that were not previously made obvious.
With a funded account, we set off to play. Most websites these days offer different types of gambling, so we make sure we try them all. This phase of the process gives us a real insight into the actual use of a website.
Please note that the RESULTS of our gambling rarely affect our ratings. We will not give a glowing rating to a website just because we happen to win or a terrible rating because we accidentally lost. It is the total experience that we want to tell you, not whether we made a stupid bet that lost in the casino or was lucky.
There are, however, some exceptions to this point. Of course, if we have reason to believe that, for example, we have achieved poor results due to an unfair game, then we will mention that. Fortunately, this is not something that happens very often.
Make a Withdrawal
We always ask for at least one payout from a site at the review, and usually more than that. As with the deposit, we can explain how the process works and check what fees are incurred (if any).
It also allows us to see how long payouts are processed and sent to us. This is VERY important information, for obvious reasons, and it is especially relevant when reviewing US friendly gambling websites.
Processing online gambling transactions is a real challenge in the United States, so withdrawals can often take a long time. People need to know this before signing up.
The last step we take before we get to work on writing a review is to contact customer service. We often have a few questions that we want answers to, and it also allows us to evaluate the quality of the support we receive. We also check what options are available to get in touch.
After completing this step, we will then proceed to actually write the review. Now let’s take a look at the details we include.
