How we rank apps
Bonus.com ranks apps by analyzing a set of criteria deemed crucial to both player security and enjoyment. Staff members involved in the ranking process include experienced researchers, industry analysts, and experts – all of whom operate at their sole discretion and are not beholden to any outside entity or organization. In addition, we tap into real users who give their honest opinion—so we give you the full story and limit our bias.
Legitimacy – We don’t recommend illegal, offshore online casinos or sportsbooks to American or Canadian players.
Reputation – If a casino has a bad reputation, per player reviews, they’re automatically omitted from Bonus.com. It’s possible for an online casino to turn around their reputation later on for inclusion, but that has yet to happen.
Legality – All sites must hold a license with a state regulator to prove player protection and legitimacy. Legally-licensed online casinos are heavily regulated and restricted from sharing private data in accordance with state and federal law.
Security – Online casinos need to have the most up-to-date SSL encryption, keep players’ money in a completely separate bank account (which is required by law), and follow all privacy laws. They should also offer two-step authentication for players who want to add an extra layer of security. If anything of this is missing or the online casino has a reputation for violating these concerns, they get a strong thumbs down.
Support – Any company that handles money should have an immediately-accessible support channel. Ideally, a company has multiple options as well, such as online chat support, email, and a phone number.
Usability – A top-rated online casino app gives players several options for making a deposit and cashing out. The best payment methods include online bank transfer, Venmo, and PayPal. But, really, the best are simply whatever you prefer. If an online casino’s payment methods force you to create a new web wallet, that’s some serious points against them.
Variety – A top rated online casino should have games from a variety of different software companies, several progressive jackpot slots, live dealer games, and hundreds of slots adn table games.
Bonuses – Bonus options include no deposit bonus codes, deposit-match bonus codes, free spoins, risk-free play, and more. We also take a look at ongoing promotions and fair playthrough requirements.
Features – We take into account loyalty programs, if demo practice mode is available, and if users can filter to easily find the content they like.
Rankings – No one knows an online casino better than its long-time users, which is why App Store rankings can be so valuable. The top rated online casinos strive to have the highest possible App Store ranking, bringing in tens of thousands of reviews and boasting a 4.5 out of 5.0 or better.
