Our Casino Review Policy

Before you take a gamble, it pays to know a casino inside out—the good, the bad, and the ugly.

That's where GamblingBaba steps in.

We help you navigate the online casinos we feature with detailed reviews, explaining their pros and cons.

Our thorough testing ensures we only recommend the best platforms for gambling in India.

The gambling scenario in the country is pretty messed up, we know. Our humble attempt is to keep you away from shady casinos and point you toward ones that are legitimate, fair, secure, and worth joining.

The ball's always in your court because you get to pick the casino that suits you best.

We'd never put a price on our reviews, which means we don't accept money to promote any casino found in our recommended listings.

Every review is done independently, without external influence, which allows us to call a spade a spade.

Our opinion about the listed casinos is a joint effort by a team of experts expressing their points of view. Expect transparency and objectivity in every word.

Wondering what's in it for us?

Well, satisfaction of the highest order!

As casino enthusiasts, we want fellow patrons to sign up at online casinos in India, without falling prey to scams. Your safety and enjoyment are our top priorities, plain and simple.

That being said, we also have to make some money to keep GamblingBaba running.

We might earn a commission if you sign up with a casino through our site.

But rest assured this won't impact our reviews. We will always stick to our promise of offering you the best and fairest options without playing favorites.

Our review process is detailed below. For clarity, we have split it into two sections:

  • Our team of casino reviewers
  • Our process of reviewing casinos

Our 10-Step Review Process

Step 1: Find a new online casino in India

We keep a list of every new casino we hear about or find, noting whether it accepts Indian players.

From this list, we choose which ones might be featured on GamblingBaba.

Step 2: Inspect its license

A casino's license signals legitimacy. It is our first checkpoint for trustworthiness.

Our focus is on recommending regulated online casinos that hold a genuine and valid license.

Step 3: Read the terms and conditions

A casino's terms and conditions speak volumes about it.

Withdrawal limits, high wagering requirements, and whatnot—these rules can make or break your gambling experience!

This is why we read between the lines to understand every detail. We only proceed if the terms are clear, fair, and reasonable.

You'll also find these vital details in our reviews because we want players to know what they'd need to agree to.

Step 4: Check the payment methods

It's important for a casino targeting Indian players to offer local payment methods like UPI and IMPS.

While we welcome international options like Skrill, Neteller, Visa, Mastercard, and even cryptocurrencies, we're more vocal for local.

That's not all.

We test each payment method to ensure it actually works because, sometimes, listed methods turn out to be duds.

We make small deposits to verify they go through smoothly.

Step 5: Test the casino for timely withdrawals and KYC

We spend a few hours playing real money games at the casino with our deposited funds.

This allows us to request a withdrawal legitimately.

Once we win and can cash out, we place a withdrawal request to test how fast and accurately it's processed, checking if it matches the casino's claims.

This is also a chance to review the casino's KYC process, typically triggered with the first withdrawal.

From requested documents to processing time, we make a note of all details.

Step 6: Interact with customer support

The best way to gauge how a casino handles issues is by interacting with customer support.

This is its first line of defense, so it better be strong.

First, we check if support is available, especially through live chat—the quickest way to get in touch.

Then, we see if they respond quickly because time matters.

Talking to real people instead of bots is important to us. We prefer friendly human interactions unless the bots are outstanding.

We act like regular players to avoid getting buttered up for reviewing the casino.

Finally, we judge the quality of their response by seeing if it addresses our concern effectively.

Step 7: Explore other titbits

So far, our review process has focused on convenience and safety.

Now, it's time for the juicy part: checking out the casino's games and bonuses.

Are there enough games to choose from? Are popular titles included? Do they offer a variety, including RNG games, live dealer options, and maybe even a sportsbook?

What's the RTP of the slots? Considering payout percentages vary across casinos, are you getting value for money?

Again, do these games count towards bonus wagering? Are bonuses available for all game types?

We want you to enjoy the excitement of playing at a casino that has it all.

Step 8: Do an online survey

Before we list a casino, we check what others have to say about it.

Player feedback on sites like Trustpilot and AskGamblers is important to us. We also look at the opinions of other casino reviewers.

Why?

Well, because while we are experienced, we are not the only experts, so we won't act like we are.

Step 9: List the casino

Once we are sure the casino ticks most boxes if not all, we move to the next step: listing it.

The draft is circulated within our team one last time for feedback. Then, we refine the text until it's clear and well-structured.

Only then do we publish it for all our readers to see.

Step 10: Revisit, re-evaluate, repeat

We don't just list a casino and call it job done.

Each month, we revisit every review to ensure the information in them is still valid.

During this re-evaluation, our ratings might change.

What we once called a top casino might now be labeled a disappointment. We might even blacklist casinos we once recommended if we find major issues.

Regardless, our recommended listings will only show you the best options.

That being said, the online gambling world moves quickly. Sometimes, things slip by us despite our best efforts to stay updated.

That's where you come in.
