New country display preferences

4 replies • Last post

Some of you may have noticed that we have rejigged the country settings up the top of the page. Basically we are trying to make the site more personalised and relevant given the wide range of different rules and laws that apply to gambling in different countries.

So what we do is detect your country from your IP address and display it up the top of the page. If it is not correct, you can click the link and set it manually and it will be saved either in your member account if you have one, or a cookie if you are an anonymous visitor (this saves you from resetting it every time you visit the site). Same thing for your preferred currency.

We want to use these settings for a few things:

  1. To filter casinos and bonuses from our ranked lists that do not accept players from your country.
  2. To provide accurate recommendations of the best casinos for players from your country.
  3. To show bonus and jackpot information in your preferred currency where possible.
  4. To indicate which casinos support any non-English language(s) spoken in your country.

We are currently going through our entire database of casinos and updating the information for which countries the casinos do and do not accept players. The aim is that within a few weeks you should only see casinos in our list of bonuses that you can actually play at. Also if you are in a country that does not speak English as its main language, you should see flags that indicate which casinos provide a service in your native language.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

I just noticed the little UK flags all over the place. What do they signify? I thought it must mean that the casino is in English but then I saw some that I know are in English and they dont have the flag?

Ah, for UK visitors we added a little something extra. The flag indicates that the casino is operated form a jurisdiction that is whitelisted by the UK Gambling Commission. That list of jurisdictions includes Alderney, Gibraltar, The Isle of Man, Antigua, Tasmania (Australia), and anywhere else in the E.U. This means that the Gambling Commission regards the standards required to gain a gambling license and operate in those jurisdictions as being at a similar level to its own. So if you are in the U.K. it is highly recommended to stick to casinos licensed in those jurisdictions and marked by the flag.

If you are outside the U.K. and want the same information, we list whether the casino is UK whitelisted on the individual review pages, or you can temporarily change your country setting to the United Kingdom by clicking your country's flag at the top of the page.
