Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

You don’t have to be a gambling enthusiast or an expert to want to play at the best online casinos out there. After all, it’s in our DNA to want the best things for us, and that applies to entertainment as well. So, in such a crowded market, how can you spot the very best casinos? You can either check out multiple reviews and hope that they’re objective and unbiased. Or, you can let the certified specialists in this industry decide for you, and only play at award-winning casinos. If option number 2 makes the most sense for you, we’re helping with a list of the 5 best award-winning casinos in 2019.

LeoVegas

In recent years, LeoVegas simply can’t stop grabbing awards left and right from the most prestigious institutions in the gambling industry and respected player communities alike. Their latest trophies, in a double-digit collection, are the GGA ‘Online Casino of the Year’ award and the Best Mobile Operator recognition from IGA. Of course, these titles wouldn’t have been possible without strong partnerships with providers like NetEnt – that also got the IGA Best Mobile Product and the GGA Award for Casino Product of the Year for Jumanji.

Overall, LeoVegas offer over 10 top-notch game providers and delivers an extended range of online slots, table games and progressive jackpots. The best example on how effective progressive jackpots can be, comes from the €7.8 million prize won by a LeoVegas player on Yggdrasil’s Joker Millions on a bet of only €0.50. Or, if the jackpot is not your thing of interest, you can try the LeoVegas live casino section powered by Evolution Gaming, the best live casino games provider.

VideoSlots

The most recent winner of CasinoMeister’s Best Casino Award, VideoSlots has gained a lot of momentum recently thanks to a player-oriented attitude and an excellent campaign – Battle of Slots. Over 60 software providers are delivering more than 3,000 excellently-crafted games for all players to enjoy. Napoleon – Rise of an Empire is one of the most eloquent examples, as this slot from Blueprint Gaming won the CasinoMeister Best Slot award. Of course, all the big-time hits like Starburst, Jumanji, Vikings, Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance or Halloween are also present.

Even though there are no notable jackpot wins so far on VideoSlots, you can choose from tens of progressive slots with multi-million jackpots from providers like Microgaming, NetEnt or Playtech. And if slots aren’t really your thing, head over to the live casino section of VideoSlots where a complete suite of Evolution Gaming live dealer tables await. Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and many other titles are to be enjoyed here.

Casumo

Casumo is a big innovator in the gaming industry, and that was bound to translate into some awards as well. The most recent is the Online Casino Operator of the Year from IGA. If you haven’t tried Casumo so far, you’ll love the whole gamification approach and how different things are compared to a ‘traditional’ online casino. Of course, award-winning game developers like NetEnt, Yggdrasil or Microgaming contributed as well since no matter how innovative a casino is, the games are still the beating heart. On the progressive jackpots front now, Casumo is proud to be ‘responsible’ for a €4.6 million jackpot on Mega Fortune Dreams on a €1 bet. Besides the jackpots, you can play all the top hits like Avalon, Castle Builder, Starburst, Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance or Gonzo’s Quest.

If you want to combine online gambling with the atmosphere of a land-based casino, the wide range of live casino games at Casumo will accommodate casual players and high-rollers alike. Just choose your favourite game, pick a table and face the dealer for nice wins.

Trada Casino

Sharing the CasinoMeister’s Best Casino Award with VideoSlots is a huge achievement for Trada casino. However, this is not the only major prize they win since they bagged the Best Customer Support award from the same community for the past three years in a row. Such an enjoyable casino experience can’t be delivered without an equally great set of games. And partnering with the big guys like NetEnt, Microgaming, Pragmatic Play or Yggdrasil proved to be the winning move for Trada. New titles like Vikings, Temple of Nudges or Ancient Fortunes: Zeus can all be enjoyed here, along with popular slots like Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest or Immortal Romance.

The list of casino games is completed by progressive jackpots, table games and live casino tables that deliver the same diversity and excitement as the slots department does. Even though there’s no registered huge jackpot win at Trada, you can never know when the next one will strike.

Mr. Green

We couldn’t complete the list of top 5 award-winning online casinos without Mr. Green. Bagging awards year after year from all the relevant iGaming institutions like the EGR or the IGA, Mr. Green’s most recent award perfectly reflects the involvement and concern for keeping gambling fun and entertaining. The IGA 2018 Socially Responsible Online Casino of the Year award is the best recognition of all the effort this casino puts into delivering the best gambling experience for their players. And when you combine that with thousands of top online slots from NetEnt, Microgaming, Play’n GO or Yggdrasil, you get the perfect recipe.

The €4.3 million jackpot won by a very lucky Mr. Green player on Mega Fortune is the perfect example of how rewarding such progressive slots are, and there are over 40 to choose from at Mr. Green. If Jessica C managed to win the jackpot on Mega Fortune twice in 2 years, what’s stopping you from getting your name on the winners list?

This concludes our list of top 5 award-winning online casinos you should definitely check out if you haven’t done so already. Before you go ahead and create an account, make sure to also secure the juiciest bonus possible. You can find the best online casinos in best50casino.com along with exclusive promo codes and bonuses for an unforgettable gambling experience.

Compliance Updates

MGA Tightens Definition of Start-ups

MGA Tightens Definition of Start-ups
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has announced changes to the regulations on gaming license fees to narrow the definition of start-ups, potentially ramping up costs for smaller gaming businesses.

Previously, a start-up owner had to generate less than €10m in revenue from gaming or related sectors during the previous financial year, but now, such an owner must generate less than this amount over the previous 36 months.

The rule applies both to individuals who have generated more than €10m and to those who are “part of, or controlled by, a corporate group” who have generated the same.

Under the current license fee regulations, start-ups are exempt from paying the compliance contribution, which may be between €15,000 and €600,000, depending on revenue and the type of gaming services offered.

“This amendment is aimed at ensuring that undertakings classified as start-ups are truly such, whilst simultaneously not prejudicing corporate groups that were in the business many years back and wish to benefit from such an incentive by starting up again,” MGA explained.

The changes will come into effect from January 1, 2020.
