New Study Sheds Light on Online Casinos with Poker Rooms

A new study conducted by KeyToCasino has found that online casinos with poker rooms are more trustworthy than standalone online casinos.

A new study conducted by KeyToCasino, an online casino information site, has come out with some interesting results: Online casinos that have poker rooms are more trustworthy than those without poker rooms. The study also found that online casinos with poker rooms perform better than standalone casinos in the following areas: Payout time, complexity of restrictions, language options, accepted currencies, non-payment risk and overall player performance.

Olena Prachenko, a research coordinator at KeyToCasino, commented, “Positive experience is never guaranteed in the online casino world. However, the results of our study do show that casinos with poker rooms are generally trustworthy and more likely to provide a positive experience. They pay players faster and have a higher payout limit.”


The study examined 798 online casinos and 4,146 reported player experiences, one of the largest research studies conducted in this field to date. Researchers looked at each casino, marked whether it had a poker room on the site, and pulled relevant information from their database. This information included the number of languages each site offered, deposit methods, currencies accepted, and how long the site took to pay its players.

KeyToCasino also combed its database in search of relevant player comments. The comments were sorted according to topic and whether they were positive or negative regarding the online casino in question. 57% of players who played at online casinos with poker rooms reported a positive experience, while only 49% of players who played at standalone casinos reported a positive experience.


In addition to the simple convenience of playing at a casino with both a poker room and casino games, KeyToCasino’s research shows consumers something much more. Through their research, they have come to the conclusion that when players are selecting an online casino to play at, they should strongly consider those with poker rooms. In almost every category, online casinos with poker rooms trump those without poker rooms.

For players who have been playing at standalone online casinos and would like to move over to casinos with pokers rooms, Winner Casino, bet365 Casino and William Hill Casino are all reputable online casinos that offer a wide selection of casino games as well as poker rooms.
