Welcome to MiGamble
Looking to start gambling online then look no further.
On this site I’ll review the BEST online casinos, sportsbook and bingo rooms. Update with all the latest gambling news from around the world and post the latest slots and games updates.
Looking for a good all rounds sportsbook then look no further than Bet365! they’ve been around since 2000 and started of life in a car park in Stoke! Since their small humble beginning and a £15m loan they have grown to become a gambling powerhouse! respected worldwide for their generous offers and reliable gambling services! Bet365 have grown so rapidly they declared almost £350m in PROFIT last year and billions in revenue. Cofounder Denise Coates has been propelled on to the forbes rich list after making billions from her stakes in the company!
The reason for Bet365s success is down to several factors, first and foremost thy accept players from all over the world (except USA) and they took a huge amount of custom from China despite firewalls and various legal issues. Bet365 is offered in many different currencies and languages as well as have multilingual support staff at their offices in the UK. They have recently launched in Australia too hiring Sam Jackson to be the man behind the company, despite losing $40m in the 1st year they see great profits ahead with such an emerging economy.
Another reason for success is they have been very innovative in developing new technology, they were one of the first to offer inplay betting many years ago while massive companies like ladbrokes seem content with offering a few markets at not very favorable odds. A few years later bet365 launched their mobile product which blew other companies out the water, many companies thought mobile wouldn’t catch on but it now accounts for 50% of the traffic!
The final (and main) reason for bet365s success is the incredible bonuses on offer which attract a constant stream of players! New players get a 100% match up to £200 (uk only), countries outside the UK get a similar bonus depending on where they live. As well as this you get a 100% match on your first mobile bonus up to £50! With no time limit, infact I set my account up over 5 years ago and only just realized I hadn’t used my bonus, and I could still claim it today! All new players get bonuses on the casino too, as well as Vegas and Games. When you compare this to sites like Betfred or William Hill who only offer bonuses worth £20 or so you can see why there is mass appeal for the site.
If sports aren’t your thing then take a look at Mr Green! they’ve been around for a good few years now offering casino games from multiple software vendors such as Microgaming, NetEnt, Nyx Interactive, Betsoft, IGT (WagerWorks), Leander Games, Quickspin, Thunderkick, Elk Studios AND NextGen Gaming. That’s a LOT of software platforms meaning a LOT of games to play! Infactt they have well over 1,000 slot games alone. Plus your usual supply of table games i.e. Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and ofcourse Video Poker!
Mr Green have a prety big presence in the UK, advertising on TV and popular print based media, the company is actually based in Sweden but operate out of Malta for licensing reasons. They are fully regulated in the UK and offer their gaming services to customers throughout the world (apart from USA) in 7 languages. The company is linked to the betson group (founded by the 3 same people) which have a good rep in Europe. In 2013 Mr green reported profits of £ 6.5m which was almost double that of the previous year. So nowhere near the size of companies like betf365 but still pretty sizable and a great option for players. As well as USA Mr Green exclude players from Denmark, Spain, Italy and france.
On to the bonus! Mr Green currently offer new players 3 welcome bonuses offered on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd deposits. You will get 100% on your first deposit 50% on 2nd and finally 25% on your last deposit. As well as a host of free spins and other bonuses which vary from time to time. From time to time Mr Green with email you with special offers such as Cash races and random cash drops (simply login to your account to see if you’ve been given cash!) as well as lots of free spins on new game releases etc. Ofcourse loyal players get a bit more with VIP hosts who will give you tailor made bonuses and even VIP days out for the high rollers!
One of the best things about Mr Green, and something I really respect them for doing is the ‘Green Gaming’ section of the site. It allows you to instantly set deposit and loss limits with a great variety of actions. You can also self exclude for life if you wish! A lot of companies such as William Hill have a minimum setting of £20 per day+ this means you can still deposit and lose £600 a month where as with Mr Green you can customize this to any amount, even £5 per month!
I’ve had many yeras experience playing poker live and online, so in order to pick ONE favorite all round poker room is difficultly. Most people would go with Pokerstars or Full tilt but in recent years my trust in them has shrunk, recently, after being bought by Amaya, pokerstars has gone down hill for me. Amaya decided to cut of existing affiliates from a lot of money which is rightfully owed, as well as introducing poker formats which are terrible for the longevity of poker such as jackpot sngs. Furthermore they introduced a massive rake hike at the end of last year making it almost impossible for a lot of low stakes players to even make a profit, this is all a blatant cash grab from a company now in massive debt thanks to the buyout. The future looks bleak for a poker world dominated by such a cash hungry company, and with rumors circulating that amaya are going to buy Party/Bwin too this could be awful news for players and affiliates.
But enough of the negativity….. My favorite poker room may surprise some, as it’s a small independent room but ran well with some great promotions! Sky Poker! the traffic on sky is minuscule compared to Pokerstars but it’s very well ran and very much aimed at the recreational player! This is evident by the lack of HUD support (Heads up display) which is a software addon used by professional players to gather evidence about your playing style. It’s like playing live with the same group of people over hundreds of hands, you know exactly how each one players, now imagine this is online and some players have all that information about you, instantly. Infact the info they have on your is far more in-depth.
New players get a £10 no deposit cash bonus when joining sky poker, this can be used for tournaments or cash games! it’s up to you. Every night their are several tournaments that are run with decent guarantees (normally £10,000+ guaranteed) and the major ones are even broadcast on sky Poker Tv with commentary from the pros and hand analysis! The software is pretty good and you can play in your browser (or ipad) the only downside is all tournaments are 6max (probably to accommodate TV interaction)
Sky Poker is based in the UK with offices in Leeds and London, they recently sold of 70% of the company to an investment firm but retained 30% and will continue running it as it is, with lots of TV coverage and promotion. As a sky poker customer you can play on SkyBet and SkyCasino with further bonuses available.
Remember to gamble responsibly and only bet what you can afford to lose, there are no ‘sure things’ in gambling and even ‘safe bets’ in sports betting will sometimes lose. You can’t beat the house edge with any system or strategy. Gambling should be a form of entertainment not a money making venture. The only way to really have an edge of the casinos is to use a bonus, but even that is no guarantee nowadays with the terms and conditions making it more difficult via wagering requirements and max bets.
When setting up a new casino account I always recommend you setup deposit limits or stop losses. Every site on this page allows you to setup such a facility quickly and easily. I never recommend casinos that force you to email a self exclusion request (or even worse asks that you phone them) self excluding should be easy to do and instant. Raising deposit limits should always have a cooling of period of at least 24 hours (ideally a week). Some casinos allow you to raise deposit limits instantly which ofcourse is against the whole point.
