Since betting first went online in the 1990’s there has been an explosion in the number of gambling sites for you to choose from. Whilst choice is a good thing, it can sometimes make it difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for.
This site is the culmination of thousands of hours of research, testing and categorising to bring you an in depth guide to betting online. We cover a variety of different types of bets including sports betting as well as casino, bingo and poker games all of which can be legally done online for real money.
Below you’ll find a list of our top recommendations for players in the UK and Europe. Other countries are often accepted as well, but this isn’t always the case. For non UK/EU visitors we’ve written a series of guides which you may find more useful including Australia, Canada and the USA.

For each site shown we’ve written detailed reviews which you’ll find in this section. We made the decision to combine the products into one review per brand – so, for example, we have one review covering the sportsbook, casino, poker and bingo sections of a site.
The reason for this is that a lot of the information – such as who they are, licensing, banking and currencies – is the same for all products and it didn’t make sense to repeat ourselves four times for each multi-product site. We also believe it helps build a stronger picture of the site and helps make a better decision about who to join.
This site started life under another name – Good Bonus Guide – and move to it’s new home in late 2016. First launched in 2006 the website primarily focussed on bonuses, covering lists based on product, country, language, currency and payment method. And whilst we still have that information on site, we’ve grown to also incorporate reviews, guides and various articles that go beyond simply listing bonus offers. For this reason we decision to rebrand to a more suitable name.
Initially we rebranded to OnlineBetting.eu, and them almost immediately regretted it. Due to the ongoing drama surrounding Brexit (and not knowing whether we would even be allowed a .eu domain once the UK left Europe) we went out on the hunt again to find another new name that not only represents what we do on this site, but also does cause confusion.
And finally we have settled on our new name: OnlineGamblingWebsites.com.
So, who are we? Based in London in the UK, the team behind the site have decades of experience in the gambling industry between them, covering both online and land based gaming. We run a series of websites offering guides, reviews and general betting wisdom as well as local information sites aimed at people who like to do their gambling in person – such as the UK Casino Guide which provides a directory of land based casinos in the United Kingdom.
We also wanted to say thanks to a few people for assistance with the site including The Canadian Gambler for his help researching the Canadian section of the site and Ben from Bonus Betting for general advice and guidance whilst expanding our sports betting section.
Finally, a word on responsible gambling. For most people, placing a bet on a football match or playing roulette in the casino is a harmless form of entertainment. But for some it can get out of control.
Please ensure that your betting, be it online or real world, is sensible. That you bet within your means, never chase losses and only ever do it when you enjoy it. To quote Gamble Aware, When The Fun Stops, Stop.
