How we rate our recommended South African online casinos

Rating South African casinos online isn't as simple as it may sound because there's more involved than simply looking at a casino's website home page. Instead, when our team undertakes a site review, they look at it from the point of view of a player, rather than an industry professional, in order to understand first-hand the experience a player such as yourself would have. They open an account, claim their bonus, make deposits, play games, ask for support - and in so doing, they form as clear a picture as possible of what it's like to be in your shoes as a player, and whether the experience as a whole is a rewarding one. If it is, you'll see that casino listed here with a glowing recommendation. If not, you won't find it mentioned on CasinoOnline.co.za at all meaning that it's best for you to stay away, and make another pick instead.

The checklist that our experts use when reviewing online casinos is a comprehensive one, but it needs to be in order to ensure that the gaming site in question is worthy of your time and consideration:

  • Does it offer the latest in casino games, from blackjack, roulette and baccarat to poker, slots, parlour games and more?
  • Does it offer huge welcome bonuses in ZAR to South African players?
  • Does it offer a selection of regular promotions and loyalty rewards for existing players?
  • Does it maintain top levels of privacy and confidentiality with stringent security methods?
  • Does it offer a world-class selection of South African deposit and withdrawal methods?
  • It is licensed and regulated in a recognised gambling jurisdiction by a reputable governing body?
  • Does it conduct regular auditing checks to review its payout percentages and RNG fairness?
  • Does it offer South African players dedicated support via telephone and email?
  • Does it ensure that its games, promotions, banking and security are of a high enough standard to attract a regular flow of players?

If the answer to every one of these questions is yes, it's a gaming site worthy of CasinoOnline.co.za approval!

So who are the experts responsible for rating and reviewing the best South African casinos on the Internet? Let's take a look at just some of the qualified professionals making up the CasinoOnline.co.za team:

Nicolas Brown Casino Security

Nicolas Brown, Casino Security: Born and bred in the Gauteng province, Nicolas (or Nick) is our resident gaming watchdog - a former player, IT whizzkid and self-proclaimed cyber detective. If you're an online casino looking to take players for a ride, we almost feel sorry for you - because with Nick's talent for sniffing out fraudulent activity, you'll find yourself on our list of blacklisted sites in no time. When we approve an online casino as being fully secure, it's Nick who's tried and tested it, analysing its encryption technology, probing it for any potential weaknesses, and assuring himself that its security measures are second to none. In his spare time, of which there isn't much, Nick likes binge-watching CSI, Elementary, Criminal Minds and The Big Bang Theory. Bazinga.

Tsidi Mabyane Casino Games

Tsidi Mabyane, Casino Games: Blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker, slots, Keno - you name it, Tsidi's played it, and more than likely beaten the house too. A gaming enthusiast from an early age, Tsidi spent the hours after school in the North West province playing sports against his friends, board games against his family, and later games against the computer which is where he found his calling. Today you can find Tsidi at the best casinos in South Africa, testing their games selection, checking for regular updates, reviewing their gambling software and making sure their payout percentages are optimal for players. That's why if a game has the Tsidi stamp of approval, you know it's one guaranteed to delight! When he's not challenging croupiers, Tsidi can be found challenging refs instead on the soccer field - although he assures us they deserve it.

Marina Rossouw Casino Banking

Marina Rossouw, Casino Banking: If you need to split the bill after dinner, you want this Free State numbers genius doing the maths for you because with her head for figures, she'll have it worked out in a nanosecond. A lover of all things number related, Marina is one tough finance cookie, and our resident casino banking expert. Thanks to her Masters in Finance and Investment from the Wits Business School, Marina has all the credentials she needs to assess the suitability of deposit and withdrawal options for South African players, advise on the best options for SA gambling fans to take, and review deposit promotions and incentives as well. Something else Marina takes delight in reviewing is the percentage discount she can claim in the designer sales she frequents - although with her ability to drive a hard bargain, we hear the shop assistants are a little less enthusiastic.
