3 tips for choosing the best online casino in 2023
Finding a good and safe online casino in 2022 is not a difficult task. Gone are the days when every casino promised a €2,000 bonus to its new customers. Bonuses with huge wagering requirements have been banned from Latvian casino sites, and instead there are friendly risk-free spin offers without any wagering restrictions. Also, deposits and withdrawals can be made with Swedbank and other online banks in just a few minutes.
Often, players who have used all the new customer bonuses offered by Latvian casinos look for other casinos to receive their bonuses. Therefore, in this article we will look at three key factors to consider when choosing an overseas online casino in 2022.
The quickest way to narrow down your list of potential casinos is to exclude any casino sites that do not clearly state that the casino is licensed by a country’s gambling regulator. In order to obtain a licence, a casino must ensure fair operations, otherwise its licence may be revoked, which could bring its business to a halt.
A quick way to find out if a casino is licensed is to open a web page, press Ctrl+F on your keyboard and search for “licence”. You can then plug the licence number into Google search to make sure it is a real number.
There are hundreds of licensed online casinos available, so taking a risk on a platform that doesn’t have a licence is madness.
To ensure a pleasant online casino experience, your chosen casino must take full responsibility for protecting the data of its customers. The most trusted online casinos use the most advanced security and data protection technologies to ensure that players’ personal information is fully protected from malicious activities by third parties.

Choice of casino games
The main purpose of casinos is entertainment, so one of the most important aspects to consider is the variety of casino games on offer. You’re bound to have a favourite casino game, such as Book of Ra. Would you be happy if you registered at a casino, made a deposit, only to discover that the casino did not offer your favourite game? I think you would be disappointed!
That’s why, before you register and deposit, it’s a good idea to go through the list of games offered by the casino and decide whether they meet your requirements and preferences.
The most popular casino game developers are Microgaming, PlayTech and NetEnt. If you do not find casino games from at least one of these manufacturers on a casino’s website, you may conclude that the casino is trying to “go cheap”. A wider and more modern range of games comes at a cost to the casino and many casinos want to keep these costs to a minimum, so they opt for lower quality alternatives.
But there is so much choice in online casinos that you should not settle for low quality. If you see a casino offering unfamiliar games from unfamiliar casino game developers, then feel free to go to the next online casino and do the same research.
Bonuses for new customers and regular promotions
If you are having trouble making a final decision between several casinos after you have ruled out potentially dangerous casinos without licenses, you can choose in favour of the one that offers the best bonuses for new customers.
Many foreign online casinos still offer 100% bonuses, which are very tempting but also very dangerous. If you accept the 100% bonus, you will receive a bonus equal to the amount of your deposit. For example, if you deposit €100, you will immediately have €200 available to play casino games. However, these bonuses come with cruel turnover conditions that can freeze your money until you have made up to 40 times your deposit + bonus turnover. In this example, a 40x turnover would mean that you would have to turn over €8,000 before you could make a withdrawal. There is a very good chance that you will have lost all your money in the meantime.
Nowadays, many casinos also offer risk-free spins, which usually come with no rollover conditions. For example, if you deposit €100, you will be awarded 200 risk-free spins on a particular casino game. Once you have made 200 risk-free spins, you will be able to withdraw the money to your bank account.
Always read the terms and conditions of a bonus carefully before accepting it so that you don’t have to complain later that you can’t withdraw your money.
New customer bonuses and regular promotions are definitely one of the most important factors when choosing an online casino in 2022. But once again, read the bonus conditions carefully.
