Best of 2012: Best Online Casinos

Our favorites from the past 12 months.

Online Casino Reports lists its Top 10 online casinos - a list that we keep constantly updated to bring you the best the industry has to offer. With over 10 years (!) in the business, we feel like we have a good grasp of what a player wants, and what casinos should deliver.

We evaluate online casinos based on the following criteria, among others:

  • Best online casino bonuses
  • Best online casino games
  • Best online casino customer support
  • Licenses and legitimate track-record.

Our reviews address all of the above and other criteria. Today we take a look at the year that was, and announce our favorites and most recommended online casinos.

William Hill Casino

It is very likely that before you ever placed a single bet at an online casino - in fact before you ever heard of online casinos - that you have encountered the name of this "gentleman bookmaker" from the UK. William Hill is an establishment if ever there was one, and with solid products and legitimate operations it helps lead the online gambling industry - online casinos and beyond - to widespread popularity.

The casino, specifically, is Playtech powered and holds the necessary licenses to operate in the UK and any jurisdiction where it is offered. The localized tailoring is not a side-issue, but rather features prominently in any review of this brand. For example, William Hill's cashier is loaded with payment methods that players from different countries will find specially designed for them, or even already-familiar from other online commerce and shopping they engage in.

As the top online casino in our view, we wish also to point out the "other" William Hill products: William Hill Sports, Poker, Bingo and Games. Online casino players can, with the same account they already have and with no need to sign up anew, place a bet on horse racing, chat at the bingo rooms or try their luck (and skills, naturally) in poker. It makes your experience that much more whole, and is a pleasure to play 365 days of the year.

All Slots Casino

This Microgaming powered casino is a leader in many aspects, which might seem technical but spell out clear and present advantages for players. Naturally, as we're discussing All Slots Casino, we shall begin by reviewing ALL their SLOTS games.

All Slots features over 400 games (!), including slots games but encompassing all casino games under the sun. New games are added regularly - several new games every month and more.

All Slots Mobile has established itself as a prime mobile platform in the past year as well, quick to download and perfectly fitting your 3.5" iPhone 4 screen or larger iPad, Androids, and even Blackberry devices. All Slots are releasing new games for their mobile platform, and games in HD at that.

bet365 Casino

Another 365 days have passed in which bet365 has featured prominently on our Top 10 list and in many news articles we reported in the past year. This casino is as reliable as any!

The one thing we like to mention in bet365 casino reviews is the selection of casino games. It's not about sheer number, or this or that games provider, but rather the good work the folks at bet365 do in hand-picking games from several dozen software providers to make for a one-of-a-kind games selection, and a one-of-a-kind casino.

JackpotCity Casino

As far as the most popular online casinos go, it seems like JackpotCity Casino has a warm spot amongst many players. For years and ears this casino has featured among the best. It's not that it has changed so much over the years; as a matter of fact, it seems to be much the same, save for Bigger Bonuses, New Games, Jackpots Won and Payment Methods added.

In the past year, it should be noted, JackpotCity has developed its mobile casino and added new currencies to its cashier. From year to year, JPC seems to find new ways to grow and stay honest to its identity.

We recommend trying these online casinos, and only for lack of space we do not mention the other casinos on our Top 10 homepage list.

We hope you had fun and success in 2012, and remind you to play safe in 2013.
