Testing Process at

At it is our goal to provide you with the tools to find trusted, safe and fair casinos where you can play your favourite online slot games. To achieve this aim we have carefully selected slot sites for our lists that are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. Each site is reviewed by one of our writers and a rigorous testing and research process is followed so that we can publish an accurate and unbiased account of the player experience.

The following is an outline of the research and testing we carry out on each slot site we review.

Background Checks

Before we carry out any testing on the website and games themselves we carry out the following background checks on the casino and operator.

  • Research in which jurisdictions the operator is licensed. We publish license numbers and links to the license summary page on the regulators’ websites. This is to confirm that the site is totally legit.
  • Research any historical regulatory action taken against the operator. We publish details of regulatory action and provide links to the relevant pages on the regulators’ websites.
  • Research the operator company’s name and address and any ‘sister site’ or other gambling websites they own.
  • Research the launch date of the slot site.
  • Across the web research third party and user reviews on websites like Trust Pilot for a rounded assessment of the user experience.
  • Research testing certification from 3rd party auditors to prove the fairness and trustworthiness of the websites.

Product Research

Before we start testing the website we research the following product information from the casino via their support team and their website.

  • Total slot games and other games available through the casino. We also note any big name game providers or slots that are unavailable and any notable inclusions.
  • Cashier services available including all debit cards, eWallets, pre-paid cards, mobile payment and bank transfer services.
  • Minimum and maximum deposit and withdrawal amounts and payment processing times and fees.
  • Sign up bonus terms and conditions including minimum deposit, maximum bonus, eligible games, wagering requirements on match bonus and free spins winnings.

Slot Site Testing

The most important component of every review we publish is the testing process.

To provide an accurate and real assessment of the player experience at each slot site we review we carry out the following tests.

  • Usability – we browse through the website on desktop and mobile and check to see that important information like registration, log in, terms and conditions, FAQs, contact and promotions are clear and easily accessible.
  • Registration – we sign-up an account noting the time taken and any problems during the process.
  • We deposit up to £50 into our account using a debit card and one eWallet, noting whether we can do so without going through any complicated verification processes first.
  • We claim the sign-up bonus and play through our free spins and bonus to assess the player experience from deposit through to fulfilment of the bonus. This includes assessing how easy it is to see how far we have progressed in completing our wagering requirements.
  • We browse the game menu, search and load up a selection of games to test the user experience.
  • We verify our account by providing requested documentation like passport scan, driver license scan, utility bills and payment card scan. This is to test the speed of the process and the efficiency of any tools required to upload your documents.
  • We make a withdrawal to debit card and one to eWallet noting the withdrawal times.
  • We utilise the support services to assess how efficient and timely their responses are and their availability at different times of day. This includes assessing the live chat function and any AI bots that are used.

Slot Site Comparison

As well as giving you an honest appraisal of our experiences playing at each site we also tell you how they measure-up against competitor sites and in which areas they perform better and in which areas they perform less well.

For example, in our reviews of the welcome bonus at each slot site we compare the wagering requirements against those at other sites, as well as the maximum bonus and available games.

Conclusion – Our Verdict

In conclusion we give you our verdict on the strengths and weaknesses of each slot site. This is a summary of the key points from our testing and research.

Ultimately, every player will have a different combination of preferences for their casino. For some, a low wagering requirement on the sign-up bonus may be important. For others, it may be finding games by a less well-known game provider like Thunderkick. And for others, a payment service like Paypal may be a must-have.

Our reviews are simply written to give you a detailed, accurate and objective assessment of each slot site. And then, it’s over to you to make your mind up about where you want to play.
