Online Reviews on FTR: Only the Best Online Casinos!
With hundreds of online casinos to choose from, your options may seem overwhelming. Fortunately, we here at FlopTurnRiver have reviewed some of the top casinos in the industry to bring you the answers you need to make an informed decision. We’ve graded each casino on a scale of 1 to 5 to make it easy for you to tell, at a glace, which online casino operators are at the top of their class.
However, different casinos have their own strengths and weaknesses, which cannot be accurately represented by a single, simple number. Thus we’ve broken up our reviews into detailed sections that will tell you exactly what areas a given casino excels at as well as things that could use some improvement. Read on to discover what you’ll find contained in our in-depth reviews.
You’re really missing out if you fail to take advantage of the appropriate bonus codes to activate new player (or reload) bonuses, wherever you decide to play. Therefore, we list the most useful and popular bonuses available to players. We’ll tell you how many times you can claim a bonus, the maximum size of the bonus and the percentage match offered. In some cases, users of FlopTurnRiver may qualify for exclusive bonuses that are not available anywhere else, so be sure to check out this section of our reviews if you like free money.
Wagering Requirements and Bonus Terms
A mere list of the different bonus codes available is hardly useful, so we’ve included a section letting you know what you need to do to clear these bonuses. Two bonuses of the same size could differ wildly in value depending upon the amount you have to bet to comply with the bonus terms.
Whether you like to play blackjack, craps, roulette, slots or video poker, you’ll find a detailed breakdown of the wagering requirements for your game of choice. The mathematics of figuring out how much you need to bet to complete the playthrough can sometimes be tricky. We’ve tried to clarify everything by giving you specific examples of how much you’ll need to wager for different deposit amounts if you’re playing various games.
We’ll tell you if certain games are not allowed for the purposes of bonus-clearing. Also important to know is whether the bonuses are able to be withdrawn or not after you’re done with the wagering requirements. There are sometimes strange house rules or other unusual conditions attached to casino bonuses, and we’ll let you know about them so that you aren’t blindsided.
While bonuses are very important, they’re not the be-all and end-all of casino rewards. Most casinos value their regular players and will issue them with comp points, reward points or some other loyalty scheme. In most cases, points can be traded in for cash, and players receive more points the more they play with a better exchange rate or faster point accumulation as they level up the VIP scale. We’ll go over the details of the casino’s loyalty plan so that you can understand if frequent play will bring you significant benefits.
Redeposit bonuses, prize drawings, casino tournaments and loss-back insurance are just a few of the other enticing benefits offered by online casinos. These promos vary wildly from casino to casino. In most cases, they change frequently, but we’ll let you know what types of promotions are run frequently at a given casino even though we may not be able to list out every single promo that’s active at any one time.
At casinos that have an attached sportsbook or poker room, there are sometimes valuable cross-product rewards available. Some of these rewards include poker freerolls or free sports bets for players who wager a certain amount in the casino. If you enjoy gambling on poker or sports in addition to casino games, then you should certainly learn if your play will qualify you for bonuses or promotions for other products.
Just like at brick-and-mortar casinos, individuals who are serious about playing either a large volume or at high-stakes have come to expect – and in many cases receive – special benefits from their online casino. These may include larger deposit bonuses, a VIP host, a customized rewards package and more. There are sometimes special redeposit offers made exclusively to the upper tier of a casino’s customers. We’ll give you a breakdown of any special offers that are designed to cater to high-rollers.
It’s important to get a feel for the history and reputation of any company with which you are thinking of doing business. Some firms have been around for more than a decade and have a history of reliable payments and honest business practices. Other entities have not been around for long, in which case you may wish to exercise caution. Here at FlopTurnRiver, we don’t recommend any casinos that are outright shady, but there’s still a big difference in customer service, speed of payouts and other attributes between the best, established companies and some of the smaller or newer operators.
We’ll give you a rundown of the software used by the casino. The number and type of games offered, the quality of the graphics and sound, and the organization of the lobby are a few of the things we’ll inform you about. We’ll also instruct you about what computing platforms can be used at the casino and if there are instant-play and download versions available. One of the growing trends in the industry is the availability of live dealer casinos, and if this feature appeals to you, you’ll certainly want to know about it before you create an account.
Of course, all of the preceding parts of the review are moot if it’s impossible for you to make a deposit. We’ll make recommendations as to which deposit methods are easiest and most convenient to use.
Some casinos, particularly those that serve residents of the United States, charge fees for withdrawals. We’ll do our best to give you all the details of these fees within our reviews so that you can know about them before finding out about them through bitter experience.
You may make a deposit, receive a bonus, clear it, make a withdrawal and receive your winnings all without a single problem. Nevertheless, it’s nice to know that competent support staff are there when you need them. We’ll tell you if support by phone, email, webform and/or live chat is offered and how easy it is to get in touch with support personnel.
Armed with the data found in FlopTurnRiver’s comprehensive reviews, you’ll be well-versed in the strengths and weaknesses of the casinos you’re thinking of playing at before risking a single dollar of your own. In some cases, our reviews will deviate slightly from the format outlined above. We believe in giving you all the relevant information, even if it doesn’t exactly conform to our standard layout, so some of our reviews will have different sections or present the info in a different order. As always, we’re committed to your satisfaction and wish you good luck at the tables!
