Bonus.com News Editorial Policy

Bonus.com is an independent gambling news and information service. Bonus.com has partnerships with some of the top legal and licensed gambling companies in the US. When you claim a bonus offer or promotion through a link on this site, Bonus.com may receive referral compensation from the gambling company. Although the relationships we have with gambling companies may influence the order in which we place companies on the site, all reviews, recommendations, and opinions are wholly our own. They are the recommendations from our authors and contributors who are avid casino players themselves.

Bonus.com is licensed and regulated to operate in AZ, CO, CT, IL, IN, KS, LA, MI, NJ, NY, PA, TN, and VA.

Bonus.com and our sister sites in the Catena Media network strive to be the most trusted sources of information on and analysis of the US online gambling industry.

We pledge to bring you content that’s informative, accurate, and framed in a way that reflects the sincerely held perspectives of our writers.

That said, this is an industry that has produced a huge number of online media outlets. All of them claim to be legitimate, and many are. However, there is also a lot of misinformation out there, and you can’t just trust a site’s owners to tell you if they’re honest or not.

For that reason, it’s important that we show you why you can trust us, rather than just telling you. The easiest way to do that is to show you what we do and what we don’t do.

What We Do At Bonus.com

At Bonus.com we:

  • Work with experienced journalists and those with direct, relevant experience with the gambling industry
  • Promote regulation and responsible gambling as a means of harm reduction in the gambling industry
  • Publish only articles that have been fact-checked by the News Editor Alex Weldon, Casino Content Manager Mike Epifani, and additional sets of eyes as needed
  • Act within the larger Catena Media North America network, which comprises dozens of experts who share their knowledge freely with one another
  • Operate in full compliance with US law and hold a valid, current vendor’s license in all states which require it
  • Source our facts as directly as possible, from lawmakers, regulators and representatives of the companies we report on
  • Issue corrections swiftly when information is found to be in error, and are transparent about our mistakes
  • Do our best to keep our permanent pages up to date, and indicate the time of last update on “living” pages that change frequently

Corrections & Feedback Policy

We do our best to be as accurate as possible in our reporting. However, we are a small team producing a large volume of output in a rapidly-changing industry.

Significant factual errors in our reporting are rare, but they do happen, as they can at any media outlet.

If you encounter what you believe to be an error on our site, don’t hesitate to contact the News Editor. We’ll be quick to correct the error if that’s what it is, or clear up any misunderstanding.

This applies to both our news and affiliate marketing content. Even when it comes to promoting our business partners, we are committed to ensuring anything published on our site is as complete, honest and accurate as possible.

We also welcome general feedback, positive or negative. Our readers are a diverse group, including everyone from players and journalists to investors, lawmakers and industry figures. Whoever you are, we’d like to know how you found us, what you think of our content, and what types of stories you’d like to see more of in future.
