Top-Ranking Online Casinos 2014Published November 17, 2014 by Mike P
Here is our eagerly anticipated list of awards to honour the best casinos of 2014. See if your favourite sites have earned a mention.
Having closely monitored the online casino market for ten months, we are now ready to name our best casinos for 2014. To provide a broad range of quality recommendations, we have chosen casino sites to represent ten key categories of operation. And now, here is your list…
Innovation – Slotty Vegas Casino
Slotty Vegas impressed us greatly this year, which is why we also awarded it the title of Best New Casino 2014. As for innovation, Slotty Vegas is a clear winner because of the Supercharged feature that is attached to its leading video slots. This generous feature sees extra winnings added to every winning spin.
Slotty Vegas has been so impressive because of the site’s commitment to satisfying players. Key to that strategy has been a rewarding VIP scheme, rapid cash outs, and widespread language coverage.
Mobile – BETAT, bet365, and Winner
Category number two sees an incredible three-way tie between three quality mobile casinos. Starting with the newest player, BETAT Casino delivered an incredible experience by providing more than 75 mobile casino games from NetEnt and Microgaming.
bet365 Casino earned a share of our mobile award because of its all-encompassing approach, covering games, poker, sports, and betting in-play. Winner Casino is another operator that impressed us greatly with its diverse approach to mobile betting.
Customer Service – Tivoli Casino
Tivoli Casino takes this award because of the site’s thorough approach to customer service, which is an area that no online gambling operator should ever overlook.
Players can send their queries to Tivoli with either a contact form or by email. Customer service hours run from 08:00 until 22:00 (CET) from Monday to Sunday.
The final factor is language support, with options for players to switch between Danish, English, Finnish, German, Norwegian, and Swedish.
Game Selection – bet365 Casino, BETAT Casino
The quality of the games at bet365 is highly impressive, with the online casino receiving them from Playtech. This makes the site a clear leader because players have access to the newest releases of Marvel slots plus TV/movie-themed slots like The Sopranos and King Kong.
BETAT is clearly worthy of a runners-up spot behind bet365 because of its multi-developer approach that combines video slots from both Microgaming and NetEnt. Players can switch easily between from Jurassic Park or Terminator 2 to popular NetEnt slots such as Aliens or Scarface.
Language Support - EUCasino and bet365 Casino
Here we have another tie, with EUcasino and bet365 sharing the multilingual honours. EUcasino is worthy of its position by covering more than ten languages, some of which include French, German, Russian, and Spanish.
Cementing its status as a truly global gambling operator, bet365 Casino offers an incredible 18 languages. Along with familiar European languages, coverage is given to Czech, Dutch, Polish, and Slovenian speakers – plus many others, including Asian languages.
Bonuses and Promotions – Cherry Casino and EUcasino
The speed at which casino sites update their bonuses and promotions is of growing interest to many players. Throughout the market, there is intense competition for providing the most competitive welcome bonus deals. However, what can often get overlooked is the quality and frequency of the regular promotions.
Cherry Casino is one of the winners for this award because the site regularly switches up its promotions and launches some pretty quirky deals. The site has so far had a bubble popping contest and a scavenger hunt in 2014.
EUcasino has earned a share of this award because of the daily promotions calendar that is provided to players. From races and happy hours to redeposit bonuses and VIP deals, there is no shortage of possibilities.
Payment Information – EUcasino and Winner Casino
EUcasino supports nine currencies from all over the world, even covering the Russian rubble and the South African rand. A vast range of payment options are provided, including the likes of Neteller, Skrill, POLi, Ukash, and paysafecard – plus many, many others.
Winner Casino has earned a share of the payments award for its transparent approach in which players can see bonus deals for depositing with specific payment methods.
Live Dealers – All Slots
Powered by Microgaming software, All Slots features a live casino with dealers hosting tables featuring blackjack, roulette, and baccarat. However, it has to be the glamorous live Playboy dealers who steal the show.
Progressive Jackpots – All Slots
Adding another award in quick succession is All Slots, where one fortunate player has managed to win €1 million. Historically, All Slots has had a string of incredible player victories going back to 2006, when user Gail G won $98,753 in the space of just nine days.
Overall Casino Experience – Casino Cruise and bet365
Casino Cruise has wowed us because of its sheer ambition, which is highlighted by the promise of a cruise giveaway each month. Additional perks are the daily tip, an easy-to-use menu, and the fact that all games can be accessed in fun mode.
bet365 has earned a share of this award because of the operator’s continued dedication to excellence on all fronts, spanning games, mobile, sports betting, and more.
