The UK’s Best New Casinos of 2019 So Far…
June 17, 2019
The casino world is ever-changing. It’s hard to keep up with all the new casinos out there but Casino Circle has you covered.
In the list below, we’ll be looking at the UK’s best new casinos of 2019.
But how exactly do we determine what’s the best in the UK? Here are some criteria:
- Safety – Every casino on this site has a UK Gambling Commission licence and most have licences from Malta, Gibraltar, and Sweden. The UKGC work tirelessly to make sure player safety is paramount. Licences are given to casinos who follow regulations and prevent money laundering and problem gambling. If they don’t have one, they don’t make it on the site.
- User experience – Slow, lethargic sites of any kind are a pain to navigate. After a few seconds, your brain turns off and you leave. That’s not what anyone wants and that’s why we don’t feature those kinds of casinos here either. The best UK casinos have quick, responsive sites with great navigation and multi-device support: desktop, mobile, and even console and VR!
- Site appeal – UI (user interface) works hand-in-hand with UX and that’s why a good looking site is so important. Many share similar aesthetics but whatever your tastes, easy navigation and load speeds is crucial to keep your appeal levels through the roof!
- Payment methods – Withdrawals, deposits, time it takes to do both, do they accept PayPal? These are the kinds of questions you’ll ask yourself when deciding on the best casinos and so do we. If it’s too difficult to get your money in or out (legally of course), or they don’t have the basic payment methods, they’re not friends of ours. Think of us like online casino bouncers but more attractive than Max and Paddy!
Now, let’s get into those casinos!
Aspers Casino have a major prestige offline and decided to showcase their presences online when they launched their site in 2018.
The site has a fairly minimal colour scheme and simple navigation. The site speed is great on desktop but could be improved on mobile but a great experience overall.
Some of the games Aspers Casino offer include:

You don’t need a genie in a lamp when you have Wishmaker!
The online casino launched this year with some wonderful features up its sleeve: 16-hour customer support via live chat and email, FAQs, a 100% deposit welcome bonus up to £100, and over 1,300 slot games in their catalogue.
For the user experience, we called it very nice in our full review. The great design isn’t extended to all parts of the site but we can give them a little leeway since the site is so new.
And that games library is behemoth in size. Here are some gems:

Ah, good old PlayOjo. They’re one of the best casinos on the internet and with good reason. Their TV adverts are one-of-a-kind and so are their offers are amazing – no wagering bonuses and free spins galore!
Their other features are stellar too with a 24-hour support team and over 500 casino games including live casino and progressive slots.
The PlayOjo user experience is top notch with stunning colours, brilliant graphics, and a truly immersive experience. The full screen layout means you get more on the page and you don’t have to scroll as much. How thoughtful.
They also have a cool games collection. Here are 5 to choose from:

A co-operative casino – what a concept! That’s what Fansbet provides with their mission statement: “the only bookmaker in the world which creates a bond with sports fans by committing to share half of its net profits directly with supporters.”
Alongside that, they also offer a 24/7 email and live chat support team, 100% bonus up to £200, and nearly 700 games.
This site is pretty minimal in black and green. It’s responsive, speedy and looks awesome on mobile.
Here are some great games on offer:

And last but not least is the highest rated casino on Casino Circle. Winstar launched its site in 2018, but there was already a bricks-and-mortar casino in the USA, classed as a “tribal casino”. It has a huge reputation in the States and it’s no wonder their online offering is rated so highly.
Their top features include 24/7 customer support, a 100% match bonus up to £250 + 100 free spins on your first deposit, and nearly 400 games.
The site’s layout is bloody marvelous with its lush purple, orange, and red ensemble. The navigation is awesome too and super responsive.
Here are a handful of brilliant slots to try on Winstar:

There you have it – 5 fantastic new UK casinos to try out for yourself. But we’d like to remind you of some pointers before you make a decision on where to play:
- Read the T&C’s. Fine print is something we often forget to read but it’s important for online casinos because you could get stung without realising.
- Scrutinise the wagering requirements. Some casinos like PlayOjo have no wagering requirements so you’re fine but many others do and whether they’re 20x or 40x, you need to know what they are so you can prepare for them
- Never bet more than you can afford. Chasing losses is a precursor to problem gambling and can cause a lot more issues down the road so apportion some money to play with and stop when you’re up.
