Types Of Casino Review Sites
So let’s take a look at some of the different types of websites that carry reviews. You may find that by identifying different options, you’ll find a preference in them that suits you best .
Real Player Casino Review Sites
Often very popular because of the community feeling they build, real player review sites do just what they say on the tin. You’ll be able to read reviews written by normal people who want to share what they know.
This is a model that Amazon uses to great effect. Everyone wants to read what real people think about something.
The only danger here is that you could still get fooled. It’s not impossible to generate fake reviews, though you can normally tell by the way they’re written.
One of the most well known sites in this category is latestCasinoBonuses
Another good way to get real player feedback is by searching through various online forums. You can read more about the benefits of belonging to a casino forum on our forum page, though you don’t normally have to be a member to read though posts – only if you want to comment.
The value in forums is of course that they’re intended for debate and the sharing of information in a community environment, and many do carry specific sections which encourage members to post their own casino reviews to expand on a forum post or to generate new discussion.
Reviews From The Casino Operators
Actually not really reviews, but most casinos have an about page that explains what they deliver – their background, games, deposit methods, promotions etc.
Clearly on these the write ups are not going to be objective and they’re obviously biased, they’ll all think they’re the greatest and want to tell you so.
Still, these pages are worth a read if you’re considering signing up. If only as a starting point before getting some more ‘accurate’ feedback.
Standalone Websites & Blogs
This category describes the thousands of smaller, often one man websites or blogs that proliferate across the internet. It’s so easy nowadays to start off a blog through many different and often free to build platforms.
It won’t be a surprise therefore to find that quality varies considerably. A blog can be created carrying one casino review and never be touched again. As long as the domain name owner renews their domain registration each year it’ll keep on working.
That said, you are likely to come across many valuable smaller websites which are useful. In fact it’s possible to find smaller, low budget sites that are highly valuable and written by experts or at least by authors who are passionate about their subject.
It’s probably worth differentiating here between what’s know as authoritative sites and the smaller blog type sites.
Often blog owners tend to jump around subjects. You might see a post about a review of a specific casino one day, and the next post could be about a game, a bonus, or any other casino related subject.
The authoritative sites tend to be well structured and much contain much more valuable info with a strong focus on trying to cover the subjects in depth. The aim is for RealMoney.Games to fall into this bracket. Authoritative sites on online casinos will definitely carry individual casino reviews, alongside every other aspect of casino gaming.
