Player Score

The Player Score is our community-based scoring system that allows online casino players to contribute themselves to the overall picture around a casino. Users can contribute to the Player Score only after we’ve confirmed that they actually played with that casino.

What is the Casinos DB Score?

The Casino DB Score boils down to two simple things: the combined casino ratings from all published reviews and the credibility of the reviewer behind each one. Let's break it down for you!

The Casino Rating

The world of online casinos can be overwhelming, with countless types of ratings and rankings to sift through. Some experts use 5 Stars, others just words such as Good or Excellent. At Casinos DB, we've simplified the process for you by aggregating all these individual scores and converting them into one, easy-to-understand number that you'll see listed next to each casino on our site.

The Top Expert status

When it comes to online casino reviewers and publishers, not all are created equal. We take our analysis seriously and only give weight to those who are true authorities in the industry. We know that you deserve the most accurate assessment possible, so we prioritize the contributions of reputable publishers in our formula. Those who truly stand out get a chance to contribute to our coveted Great badge!
