WhichBookie Bookmaker Reviews – How They’re Rated

As mentioned, there are a lot of factors we consider when rating a bookmaker and determining whether they are recommended or not. The ratings which you’ll find across this site are determined by customers and not our independent reviewers. Our bookmaker reviews are based not only on our own experiences but also the feedback and experience of others. We recommend that you read both our reviews and the comments left by WhichBookie visitors to gain a better understanding of how recommended a bookmaker is.

If you’re looking to create an account with a bookmaker then it’s important that you gain as much knowledge about them as possible prior to signing up. Below are a few factors to take into consideration to ensure you will be betting with the best bookmaker possible.

1. Licenced Bookmakers

There are hundreds of bookmakers online and not all of them have a good reputation for one reason or another. You’ll probably be confident signing up to some of the big brands in the industry but with new bookmakers surfacing all of the time, it’s not easy to know if they can be trusted. 

If you reside in the UK then we would only recommend betting with a bookmaker which has a UK licence. For other countries, make sure that the bookmaker holds the relevant licence. This information should be displayed on their websites and usually in the footer or on the ‘About Us’ page. If a bookmaker does not hold a UK licence then they may not follow the regulations set by the UK Gambling Commission which helps keep online betting safe and fair for players. You may also not be able to receive the same support should a dispute be raised with a non-UK-licenced betting site. You’ll find which licences each bookmaker holds in the sidebar of each bookmaker review.

2. Reputable Bookmakers

If you search for any bookmaker, it’s likely that you’ll find a number of reviews written by websites. However, the best way to gain a clearer picture of whether or not a bookmaker is reputable is to hear the opinions of real customers who have had hands-on experience with them already. Issues such as bookmakers refusing payouts, voiding bets or excluding customers from promotions can only be made aware of from customers who have experienced these things. That’s why at WhichBookie, we encourage all visitors to leave their honest opinion and experience of bookmakers in our reviews.

3. Site Features

Once you have found a bookmaker which you can trust, it becomes a question of what they have to offer. The gambling industry in the UK is extremely competitive and so bookies are constantly looking for ways to improve their service and how they can offer more than other bookmakers to attract more customers. Some bookmakers do a better job of this than others and offer a lot more. Below are some of the features and aspects of betting sites to take into consideration and it is up to you how important they are when choosing a bookmaker to sign up to. You’ll find allof these points covered in each bookie review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take the time to read through our reviews to determine for yourself which are the best bookmakers to sign up to. You’ll find that the top bookmakers are the ones which have a good reputation, offer more features and promotions and who have received a number of positive customer reviews.
