Top Ten Bingo Site Ratings: How Are They calculated?

We have a wonderful job here at Best Offers – we play at, then  rate and review the top bingo sites – poor us. There are many new bingo sites launching on a monthly basis, all trying to attract our attention with amazing competitions, huge bonuses, massive jackpots, and catchy advertising campaigns. We understand how difficult it can be to keep up with such rapid developments, which is why our team of journalists do all the hard work for you.

We rigorously test out new sites, and have a strict set of criteria – if a site fails to impress us, we will be sure to condemn it accordingly. However, if it passes our battery of tests, we put it in the top 10 hall of fame. This means whenever you pick a site from our top 10, you're virtually guaranteed a wonderful, safe, secure, and potentially profitable experience. So, what do we look for when we prowl those online halls? Read on, and discover some of our secrets.

Is a site whitelisted?

First things first – we check that a site is licensed in a recognised and legal jurisdiction. There are four main jurisdictions – if you fancy doing some detective work for yourself, you'll always find the jurisdiction mentioned in the small print at the bottom of the homepage. They are as follows:

  • Gibraltar Licensing Authority.
  • The Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
  • The Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.
  • The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Committee.

If a site claimed to be operating from say, an unrecognised jurisdiction like Nigeria, or the North Pole, sirens would ring at Best Offers HQ and chances are, we would not recommend the site to our darling players.

Background checks

We thoroughly investigate the history of the site – does it pay up quickly or are payments slow? Word gets around quickly if a site misbehaves, so rest assured if a site fails to pay up, you'll be the first to know.

Juicy jackpots

We all want to win a wallet-bulging jackpot – after all, that's the main point of playing, right? If those jackpots get our reporters in a tizzy tailspin, they'll be sure to let you know.

Ticket prices

None of us want to pay big prices for tiny jackpots, although some operators seem to think that we do. We're constantly on the lookout for bargain games with monster jackpots – we want our readers to save money because we're lovely like that.

Support and security

It would be nice if we didn't have to worry about disputes, duff software, and hackers, but they're just an occupational hazard. We ensure a site has 24-hour support to help with any queries, and that disputes are resolved fairly quickly. Security is also a major issue – after all, you're giving your highly personal financial details away to a third party. A site must provide the correct security protocols, once again the details of which can be found at the bottom of the homepage.

Amazing competitions

It's the competitions that get our reporters really excited, and they should get your juices flowing too. Imagine winning an iPad, a car, a Caribbean holiday, or a VIP encounter with your favourite band? The quality of the promotions is often a hallmark of a good site – they generate a real buzz in the chat rooms, for starters.

Rest assured and play safe.

These are only some of the criteria we use at Best Offers Bingo to choose our top 10 bingo sites, and just like the music charts, it's an ever-changing list. Be sure to check back here on a regular basis to see what's new – it's the perfect way to discover safe new places to play.
