Our Approach – How we rank
How do we know what makes for a reliable betting platform? How do we know what sort of betting website you want? Well, first and foremost, we’re gamblers ourselves. With this, we know that the priority should always be fun.
Our approach to this website will always be to help gamblers who are looking for a new platform, whatever their most important features. If we provide the information in a clear way, it’s then up to you to choose the one that matches your needs.
We want to find the best platform not only for our visitors and friends, but also because we’re in search of the perfect platform ourselves as players. We want a website that has simple navigation, that has lots of sports and markets, and that is fun to play.
Over the years, we’ve gone through the bad experiences and tested the poor websites so that you don’t have to. Thankfully, we’re now in a position to bring the best services to you whether you prioritise live betting, fantasy sports, or something else entirely. Of course, we’ll also always test new names to the market on your behalf.
At Find Betting Sites, we’re committed to those who visit our page and our motivation comes from our own passion to enjoy the betting experience.
Whenever we review and test a new platform, Responsible Gambling policies play an important role…and this will ALWAYS be the case. As gambling addiction continues to grip a percentage of players, we fully support the great work of BeGambleAware, GamCare, and all the other organisations who are working hard to prevent addiction, educate players, and help those who are already too deep to help themselves.
In the majority of our reviews, you’ll see a section dedicated to Responsible Gambling. This way, players can see the features on offer from the platform. Normally, this will include time limits, deposit limits, self-exclusion, and other measures. However, the very best betting websites go above and beyond by educating players, joining responsible gambling schemes, and offering self-assessment questions.
We encourage players to stop when the fun stops, and to only play with money that they can afford to lose – if you’re gambling rent or mortgage money, or other important funds, now is the time to reach out for help. Don’t worry, you aren’t alone.
We’ve seen all about responsible gambling, but how else do we assess betting platforms? Let’s take a look at some of our criteria:
Firstly, nobody wants a website that’s difficult to navigate or where the betting slip always crashes. We look at the layout of the website/app, how simple it is to move from page to page, loading times, the appearance of the website, and any other factor that will either add or take away from the experience.
Registration and Welcome Bonus
We need a reason to join one service over another, right? This often comes with the welcome bonus, and we also consider the registration process in this. The new verification process makes registration slightly longer than before this legislation existed, but some services still make the steps easier than others.
Next, we know the disappointment of liking a betting website only to find out that they’re missing some sports or markets. Therefore, we always comment on the extensiveness of a platform’s sportsbook.
We hope that our experience on a website goes smoothly, but we mustn’t forget that we’re playing with real money. What if you log in to find that your account is empty? What if you aren’t paid your winnings after a successful bet? Even if you’ve never experienced these problems before, it’s still good to have a reliable customer support system behind you should something go wrong.
We can assume that every service has single bets, system bets, and accumulators. Yet, not every service does live betting well. Elsewhere, some services have unique features when it comes to betting types and different ways to bet.
Finally, we also pay attention to the banking methods offered by services. What methods can we use to get money into our account? How long do withdrawals take? While most services are comfortable with debit and credit cards, they don’t all use eWallets, so this is an important section for users of Neteller, Skrill, or another eWallet.
Ultimately, we’re gamblers too. If we’re recommending a platform, you can be sure that it has been tested extensively. Be sure to read our in-depth reviews to find your next betting website and to enjoy the latest offers!
