We are online gambling experts

In 2020, Bojoko grabbed the prestigious EGR award in the Casino affiliate of the Year category. Here's how we did it:

Transparency

Bojoko is an affiliate website made by Good Game Ltd, a small but well-seasoned online gaming company.

On Bojoko, gambling sites create their own listings. Community members review and rate sites and individual games.

Recently, we asked experienced players to give you their honest opinion. Our testers have tried these gambling sites with real money and tell it like it is, without pulling any punches.

We closely vet the sites we promote and only feature UK-licensed, reputable online gambling companies that play by the rules.

Experience

Our team's focus is on frictionless online gambling, and we've been at it since 2011.

Some of our team members have played for over 20 years and made it into a profession. Others have built their career working with local and international casino operators.

As a company, we've got over 10 years of experience building gambling websites dedicated to comparing and reviewing gambling sites.

We use this knowledge to serve the Bojoko community. You can read more about our team and mission on the About us -page. You can also check out the Founders' Story to see how far we've come since the early days.

We know what we're talking about, and this hasn't gone unnoticed. Our authors (especially Joonas) are often quoted in industry publications.

We take an active part in the gaming industry and promote our vision of good gaming and a safe, transparent gambling environment.

What is gambling?

By definition, gambling is a form of entertainment where you risk money in the hopes of winning some more. There are many forms of gambling, but they all have some common elements:

EXAMPLE: You bet £1 with your friend on a result of a coin toss. You call heads; your friend gets tails. The rules are simple: if the coin comes up heads, you win £1 from your friend. However, you're risking £1 of your own money, and if the coin comes up tails, you will lose it.

Different types of gambling

Gambling isn't always as simple as a coin toss. Here are some types of gambling games you may already know:

Most of the examples listed above are casino games you play against the house. The odds are slightly tilted against you to cover the cost of running the game. We explain this in more detail in our Guide to casino games.

Why gamble online

Compared to brick-and-mortar casinos, gambling online has several advantages:

In the UK, online gambling is tightly regulated and closely monitored by the UK Gambling Commission. Every legal gambling site offering its games to British players must have a valid UK gambling licence.

On Bojoko, you'll only find properly licensed UK gambling sites.

How to gamble online

Today, practically every form of gambling is available online. In this online gambling guide, we tell you how to:

Choose a safe and trustworthy gambling site

Only gambling sites licensed by the UK Gambling Commission can take players from Great Britain. On Bojoko, every site listed has a valid UK gaming licence.

We've built a tool that makes choosing a gambling site as easy as pie. Try our quick filters to see lists of different types of sites or refine your search with easy to use custom filters.

Find a perfect site to match your taste.

Read reviews

When you've found a site that interests you, it's worth your while to hear what players just like you are saying about it.

On Bojoko, we have two types of reviews:

  1. Extensive tester reviews from experienced players
  2. User reviews made by our community members

Together, they give you an accurate idea of what it's like to play on a certain site. You can also join the Bojoko community for free and share your own experiences.

Take a bonus

Most online gambling sites offer bonuses to new players. For example, there are no deposit online gambling sites that let you try out the games with bonus funds before you risk your own money.

New players usually get a bonus when they:

  • Sign up, or
  • Make the first deposit

You'll find the gambling sites' bonus details on the Bojoko listings. They show you how much bonus you can get, how to get it and all the significant terms and conditions you should be aware of.

In the UK, bonuses work on an opt-in basis. Depending on the bonus you're after, you'll need to tick the right box at the right time.

We explain different bonus types and how they work on our Casino bonuses page.

Sign up

After you've clicked on the big PLAY HERE button, you'll land on the gambling site. Before you sign up, take a look around and make sure this is the place where you want to play.

Once you've made up your mind, there should be a big button that says REGISTER, SIGN UP, CREATE ACCOUNT or something like that. Click on it.

First, you'll need to fill out a signup form. It'll ask your:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Home address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • + additional info, e.g. your occupation

Fill out the form with accurate personal info. If you want to get your money out someday, don't make stuff up.

You'll also need to pick a username and a password. You're using real money to play on the site, so make the password unique and hard to guess.

Also, if the site offers a new player sign-up bonus, you need to accept it at this point.

Next, you'll need to verify your account. You should get a verification link either to your email inbox or as an SMS. Follow the instructions in the message.

Now that you're all set with a shiny new account, it's time to make a deposit.

Deposit money

Every site has slightly different ways you can pay for gambling online. The usual suspects include:

  • Online bank transfer
  • Debit cards (Visa and Mastercard)
  • E-wallets (PayPal, Skrill and Neteller)
  • Trustly
  • Prepaid cards (Paysafecard)
  • Pay by phone methods (Boku and Payforit)

Choose a method you're familiar with. Also, pay attention to:

  • Whether you can use your deposit method for withdrawals
  • Deposit and withdrawal fees
  • Deposit and withdrawal limits

You'll find the supported banking methods and their specs on the banking page.

Making the actual deposit is easy.

  1. Go to the deposit page
  2. Pick a deposit method
  3. Select your deposit sum
  4. Opt-in for the deposit bonus (optional)
  5. Click on deposit

The rest is up to the payment processor. Follow the instructions on your screen.

When the deposit goes through, the money should appear on your player account. This should only take a few seconds.

If you can't see your deposit on your player account, refresh the page. If the problem persists, get in touch with the support.

Play the games

Now that your money is on your player account, it's time to play. Online gambling sites have a vast selection of gambling games to choose from:

  • Slots
  • Card games, e.g. blackjack and baccarat
  • Roulette
  • Dice games, e.g. craps and sic bo

In addition to gambling machines and classic table games, some sites feature bingo, sports betting and poker.

When you navigate to the games lobby, you'll see different categories. Click on the title and the game loads. In the game screen, click on the ❔or 🛈 icon to see the rules and additional info.

Once you're ready, choose a bet size you're comfortable with and click on the "spin" or "deal" button to start the game.

Before you risk your own funds, most sites allow you to try the gambling games for free to see how it works.

When you're launching the game, choose the "Play for free" option to test drive the game. In the free mode, all your bets and winnings will be in play money. You don't have anything to lose, but you can't win anything either.

Contact the support

In case you have any questions, help is just a few clicks away.

On most online gambling sites, you have several ways to get in touch with the support team:

  • Email
  • Live chat
  • Phone support
  • Social media

You'll find the exact operating hours on the operator's website. You can also read our tester reviews to get an idea of the quality of help you can expect to get.

In addition, many sites list the frequently asked questions on their FAQ page.

Withdraw your winnings

You can cash out your remaining deposit and possible winnings at any time. Go to your account and make a withdrawal request.

You have to use the same payment method for both deposits and withdrawals.

Depending on the site, processing your withdrawal may take a few hours or several days. You'll find the quickest ones on our Fast withdrawal casinos page. In addition, some payment methods are faster than others.

After both the gambling site and the payment processor have cleared the withdrawal, the money will appear on your bank account or the chosen payment method.

Verify your account

Online gambling sites must make sure you are who you say you are. This regulatory requirement helps them combat money laundering, underage gambling and fraud.

Some sites can verify your account based on the details you provide during the signup process by comparing them to 3rd party databases.

However, you may also need to submit more documents before the site can process your withdrawal. This is known as the KYC (Know Your Customer) check.

The gambling site may ask you to upload or email them the following documents:

  • Proof of ID: Passport, driver's license, ID card
  • Proof of address: Utility bill or another official letter with your name and address
  • Proof of banking: Varies between payment methods. E.g. bank statement, photos of both sides of your debit card, or a screenshot of your e-wallet

Once you have sent the documents in the specified format, it may take a few days for the gambling site to check them and verify your account. Once again, our tester reviews give you a hint of how long this could take.

Online gambling FAQ

No. Gambling in the UK is perfectly legal and closely regulated. Here are the key facts:

  • The minimum legal gambling age in the UK is 18
  • The UK Gambling Commission oversees both online and offline gambling
  • All gambling sites operating in the UK must be licensed by the Gambling Commission
  • Gambling operators must also follow advertising and competition guidelines from CAP and ASA

On Bojoko, you will only see safe, regulated, UK-licensed gambling sites. Here, you don't have to worry about running into rogue sites or scams.

For the most relevant UK gambling laws, you can check the latest version of the Gambling Commission's licensing conditions.

Our gambling site selection tool helps you choose the UK gambling sites that best match your preferences.

Use the ready-made quick filters or build one from scratch. You can filter real money online gambling sites based on dozens of variables, including:

  • Bonuses
  • Banking methods
  • Game selection
  • Ratings

After you find a site you like, read reviews from other players and our testers, before continuing to the site.

Try our selection tool.

The top UK gambling sites listed on Bojoko are the best in terms of:

  • User reviews
  • Tester reviews, and
  • Opinion of the Bojoko team

We live and breathe online gaming, and our site managers have years of experience evaluating gambling operators. However, the tester reviews give us valuable first-hand information you can't get by just looking at the specs of a website.

Gambling websites are different from one another and targeted for different kinds of players. Some of these differences are purely matters of taste; others are more measurable.

These are the most important features of a gambling site we can measure:

  • Banking options and the ease of withdrawal
  • Bonuses and their terms
  • Amount and variety of games
  • Responsible gaming tools available
  • Ratings from our community and testers

Any of these factors may be irrelevant to some players. For example, if you only play live dealer games, you don't need thousands of slots to keep you entertained. Likewise, if you never take up bonuses, they shouldn't affect your decision.

However, we recommend keeping an open mind and trying new things. Who knows, maybe you can discover a form of gambling that suits you even better than your old preferences.

No. When you gamble and win on licensed UK gambling sites, all the gambling tax has already been paid. All your winnings are tax-free.

Gambling is a form of entertainment, not a way to make money.

All the secret tricks that reveal how to win at gambling are bogus. You can never eliminate the house edge completely, and in the long run, you're more likely to lose than to win.

Gambling always involves risks and is no substitute for income. If you really want to make money from gambling, you're better off opening a casino than playing at one.

Here's how you ensure you can get your money out at the withdrawal:

  1. Give accurate information when you sign up
  2. Don't create duplicate accounts on the same site
  3. Read and follow the terms and conditions, especially if you play with a bonus
  4. Upload any documents needed for the KYC check

If there's a problem with your withdrawal, get in touch with the support. If the site doesn't pay up and you haven't broken any of the terms, you can launch a complaint.

If the gambling site doesn't resolve the complaint in your favour, you're entitled to alternate dispute resolution (ADR).

You can read more about the complaint and ADR process on the Gambling Commission website.
