We only review the best online casinos on the internet

Why? Because you haven't got time in your lives to bother with rubbish.

It's the way of the world these days. We've become impatient beings, we want everything instantaneously, we only want to do things that are worthwhile.

We don't want you to mess about browsing rubbish casinos, playing with shit games, and flicking through a clutter of shit bonuses. Other casino comparison websites may offer more casinos, but none will offer both the quality and quantity that we do.

The casinos that we offer have to fit a strict criteria.

Safety first

Of course, they must be safe, that¡¯s a given. Anything that¡¯s not won¡¯t get through the door, so therefore all the casinos featured on our site are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and offer the latest security and encryption technologies. If a casino loses its UK license, it¡¯s coming straight off. No questions asked.

Then we go for the stuff that¡¯s a bit more subjective, the stuff that other casino comparison websites wouldn¡¯t be all that fussed about: we¡¯re talking casino bonuses, customer support, games, user experience. Of course, other sites aggregate on these metrics, or at least they say they do, but if a top online casino isn¡¯t offering value in these areas, we¡¯re not featuring them.

Like we said, we don¡¯t want you wasting your time, plus we don¡¯t want you depositing your hard-earned cash into a casino which quite frankly isn¡¯t up to standard.

Bonuses

Bonuses are massively important in the online casino world. But we don¡¯t want you diving headfirst into something that isn¡¯t right. We¡¯ve seen some seemingly magnificent welcome bonuses on the internet down the years, but once you read the small print they¡¯re anything but magnificent. In fact, they¡¯re absolutely terrible.

And that¡¯s almost always down to the wager requirements. These days more and more, and usually the best online casinos, are offering bonuses with no wager requirements meaning that the offer that they advertise is indeed the offer that you will get. Whereas at a casino that has wager requirements, you could be made to wager your initial deposit by up to 100x before you can withdraw.

Rest easy though, because we don¡¯t house anything like that on CasinoCircle. Every bonus has been vetted for best practice. Sure we offer casinos with wager requirements, but none of them are extremely bad.

Only interested in no wagering casinos? Well we have a page for that, don¡¯t worry! And a new Wager Free Spins site too.

Customer Support

Something that¡¯s criminally overlooked is the customer support offered up by online casinos.

When you¡¯re struggling online, there¡¯s nothing more annoying than not getting an answer to your question quickly and efficiently. You want to speak to someone, and you want to speak to them now.

So, as you will discover when browsing our site, every casino we feature offers customer support for over 15 hours of the day via telephone or at least live chat meaning you will get an answer to your query right away.

We have a lot of casinos offering 24/7 customer support via phone and live chat too, including the likes of Spinit and Betfair, which is just outstanding, really.

Games

Obviously, this is a big one. You don¡¯t want to be joining a casino which has less than 100 games of which they are all crap.

However, 100 games with them all being quality, well then that is good. 888 for example is a magnificent casino, yet it only offers a 100 or so slot games which to many might not be impressive, but when you actually flick through the library, you will be suitably impressed. Then you¡¯ve got the likes of SlotsMillion who are offering over 1,000 slots.

There¡¯s a lot of variety in this field, but again, be assured that every casino featured on our site has a very excellent selection of games.

User Experience

This is another biggie. There¡¯s nothing worse than going on any website and having a nightmare trying to navigate around the place. You want easy transitions and you want speedy loading times. PlayOjo, for example, excel in this field.

You always want an aesthetically pleasing site too. Sure it¡¯s not the be all and end all, but you don¡¯t want it to feel tired or grim. A beautiful site triggers those endorphins in your mind and makes you feel good about your gaming experience. Prospect Hall is one that nails this brilliantly.

But rest assured, just like everything else on our site, we¡¯ve done our best to separate the wheat from the chaff, the frauds from the legitimates.

No casino has made it through our net yet. There¡¯s no contamination over at CasinoCircle HQ, that¡¯s for sure.

So enough of the blabbering and the chat. It¡¯s time you to get playing on the internet¡¯s best online casinos!

Live Blackjack Review - Casino Circle

Live Blackjack

Written by:

With rules that echo the standard blackjack game you can play at any casino, Live Blackjack gives you that ‘in-casino’ experience direct to your home.

Blackjack is essentially the same as the game of ‘Pontoon’ that is commonly played in homes around the UK. The main variation is that the term ‘Twist’ is replaced with ‘Hit’ and ‘Stick’ is replaced with ‘Stand.’  The aim of the game, and how you get there are unchanged.

In short, when playing blackjack all players and the dealer are dealt two initial cards. You can then ‘Hit’ to request more cards and ‘Stand’ when you are happy with the cards you have. The aim is for your card values to add up to as close to 21 as possible, without going over (22 or more is called ‘Bust’ and means you lose that hand).

Card values are based on the number shown on the card with Jacks, Queens, and Kings all worth 10 points and Aces being able to be counted as either one or eleven. If your total is closer to 21 (without going over) than the dealers, you win the hand. The dealer can also choose to ‘Hit’ but will go bust on anything over 21.

Live blackjack then follows the exact same principles and rules. You sit at a table and place a bet to get dealt into a hand. You’ll often see other players playing alongside you, and the dealer will indicate to you when it’s your turn to ‘Hit’ or ‘Stand.’  It’s therefore as close to playing blackjack in a bricks and mortar casino as you can get, without leaving your own home. For this reason, live blackjack is one of the most popular live dealer games around.

Payouts

When playing any form of blackjack, including on a live dealer game, you’re essentially trying to double your money on each hand. That’s because when you beat the dealer, you’ll get back your initial stake plus the same again from the dealer. So, if you are playing £5 a hand, a win will net you £10. Therefore, you’re looking simply to win more games than you lose to walk away with a profit.

There are ways to get bigger payouts though, if you land a blackjack (An Ace coupled with a card with a ten value) you automatically receive a payout of 3:2. In our previous example of a £5 hand that would mean you receive £12.50 back, a slight increase on the £10 you gain for winning a normal hand.

There are a few other rules to be aware of around taking insurance or doubling down, these can be explored in our Blackjack Guide.

Overall then, Live Blackjack is essentially the same as playing a standard blackjack game. The rules are payouts are the same, the only difference is you are playing in a live environment. That means you’ll only have a limited amount of time to make a decision on your hand, but you’ll see the cards being turned over in a real casino environment that adds an extra edge of excitement to the game.

Conclusion

There’s not much more to say than this blackjack hits all the right buttons.

If you love playing your blackjack online, but have never tried playing on live dealer, then this game is the one you should dive into.

There’s nothing different, there’s nothing unique, just good old traditional blackjack, but live, just like you’d find at a real, brick-and-mortar casino.
