There are more than 10.000 online casinos in the world. There are more than 1.500 casinos listed at AskGamblers. But, if we asked you your guess about the number of accredited casinos by the respectable Casinomeister portal, the chances are that your guess could be off, even by a wide margin. This is because in the 12+ years of Casinomeister, the total number of casinos that hold its coveted accreditation is around…
Yes, only 50 casinos among tens of thousands. And now King Billy is one of them! It is with great pride that we announce our accreditation by the Casinomeister portal. We passed the most stringent tests, we answered all questions, we covered all bases, and finally we got it. But, why is the Casinomeister accreditation so hard to get?
Many, many reasons! Here follow the most important accreditation criteria for online casinos:
Prohibition of underage gaming
Maintenance of a spotless track record of fairness and integrity towards customers
Addressing player issues promptly and professionally
Display information on responsible gambling, including links to relevant organizations
Implement and enforce spending limits, along with temporary and permanent self-exclusion options
Process KYC (Know Your Customer) documents for validation while safeguarding personal privacy.
But, there are marketing standards as well. The most important of them:
Avoidance of false, misleading, or deceptive advertising
Refrain from spamming and taking of necessary actions against affiliates or third parties engaged in spam or deceptive advertising
No contact of players via text or phone calls without explicit permission, and cease of such aggressive advertising upon request
Abstain from aggressively encouraging players to reverse cash withdrawals using bonuses or other incentives
There are many other criteria, as well, which if published would make this blog entry excruciatingly long! (You can find them, however, all here).
