The Best New United Kingdom Casinos
When making a list of new UK casinos, I’m going to have to qualify my remarks somewhat. I’m going to talk about the newest casinos in the United Kingdom, but don’t get that mixed up with the safest, most popular, or best. I’ve discussed my opinions on which casino operators I trust the most in the UK, which ones have the best initial bonus offer, and which have the most payment methods. So while I’m not going to direct you to a casino that has a bad reputation, many of these e-casinos have less of a reputation to go on than others I’ve discussed.
While I talk about the newer British casinos on the Internet, I’m also going to take the opportunity to talk about one or two trends I’ve noticed recently in the UK and world gambling scene–at least among English-speaking virtual casinos. While I’m at it, I might throw in one or two suggestions for Irishmen who want to frequent Irish casinos. I understand most of Ireland isn’t in the United Kingdom, but I do it out of respect for the people at Cryptologic in Dublin, whose casino software powers so many United Kingdom casino websites. Here’s to the men in Dublin.
Guru Play Casino
Guru Play Casino touts itself as the fastest-growing casinos in Europe. Guru Casino recently announced a site redesign in 2011 and a $1000 bonus offer to celebrate their relaunch. GuruPlay is a casino that’s anxious to draw in more customers. That means you’ll have access to good promotions, such as the thousand-dollar offer and the chance to win a Nintendo 3DS. Guru Play Casino is licensed in Malta and uses Bwin.Party, Smart Gaming, and NetEnt casino software. It is operated by the Bwin-Party Digital Entertainment Plc people.
Big Casino by Viadin
Big Casino is an online gaming casino specifically designed for British gamblers. Only players from the United Kingdom are allowed to play there. The casino uses Viaden Gaming software and is licensed in the Isle of Man. Big Casino has three deposit bonuses, a reload bonus for those who don’t like big risks, and a nice VIP rewards program. Plus, it’s only for UK players, so everything is catered to UK tastes and sensibilities.
Boyle Casino out of Ireland is a casino I haven’t talked about on this site before, so I wanted to discuss this slick operation. Boyle Casino uses Playtech casino software, so you should expect the Playtech experience. This means you can play licensed fruit machines like Iron Man 2 Slots, The Incredible Hulk Slots, Rocky Slots, Pink Panther Slots, Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven, and Gladiator. You can also play multihand blackjack, 3D roulette, and so much more. I recommend playing at the platinum level if you can, since you get exclusive birthday bonuses, faster withdrawal processing times, high conversion rates on comp points, improved bonus offers, and access to higher staking levels. Those new to the casino get a 200% sign up bonus up to £200.
10Bet Casino & Games
10Bet Casino & Games is a casino games and specialty games website with several different welcome packages for new customers. These are aggressive welcome bonuses, including the standard 1010€ massive welcome package, a 4-tiered slots package, an all-games package, and a continuing 100€ monthly bonus. Games featured right now include fruit machines like Avalon, Atlantis Dive, Archipelago, and Age of Discovery. 10Bet has a lot of language options and currencies, as well as a lot of payment options. 10Bet Casino is also featured by Casino City Times. For those who don’t like to play using downloads, you’ll be able to play using Microgaming’s Quickfire software for flash casino games. 10Bet is on the cutting edge of online gaming right now. I’ll tell you about something else on that cutting edge, too.
New UK Casino News – No-Deposit Bonuses
The latest trend I’ve seen in online gambling in the last year is “no deposit bonuses”. That isn’t to say that the free signup bonus incentive hasn’t existed in the past. It’s just that the term has become a catchphrase recently, so it seems that every Internet casino feels the need to offer some kind of no-deposit bonus to new customers. That trend seems to have come to the United Kingdom, too. Heck, it might have originated in the UK.
You might wonder how these no-deposit bonuses work. While it’s by no means typical, I’ll give you one of the most transparent (and therefore reliable) no-deposit offers on the UK gambling market today: the £750 no-deposit bonus from Ruby Palace Casino.
Ruby Palace Casino Bonuses
New players to Ruby Palace are given the option of choosing to accept a bonus of £750, $750, or €750. Players must register an account, but they don’t have to put one penny in that account. This might sound too good to be true. Let me explain the stipulation.
Players get 1 hour of gambling to use their £750.00. After that, the no-deposit bonus goes away. You don’t get to keep it. On the other hand, if you won anything while betting that £750, you get to keep the bonus winnings. If you don’t win anything, Ruby Palace gives you £25 for your trouble anyway. That’s an excellent offer, given the kicker of the £25.
Places I’ve Placed – Facebook and Casino City
Facebook and Casino City Times have joined together to create the “Places I’ve Played” web page. All you have to do is sign into your Facebook account and then head over to “Places I’ve Played”. People who’ve played at a casino give their feedback, so you have the best review system in the world for online casinos (or live casinos). You aren’t getting people shilling for a casino operator. You aren’t getting disgruntled ex-customers on a forum somewhere. Sure, you’ll get some of that, but for the most part, it’s real people talking about their real gambling experiences. I’ve noticed Places-I’ve-Played is a good place to learn about the latest online casinos and thus the latest casinos in the UK.
Old UK Casinos I Like
If you try all these new online casinos and don’t like any of them, I’ll suggest either Titan Casino or 21Nova Casino, which both started getting noticed in 2010. If none of the new casinos are to your liking, I recommend gamblers should try older, established casinos like Spin Palace, Win Palace, or Royal Vegas Casino. If none of those satisfy you–and I find that hard to imagine–then I’ll suggest venerable old “Online Casino William Hill”, as they sometimes refer to themselves on the Internet.
