How we make money

To keep our service free for users, we are paid a commission by some gambling site operators when a new customer joins via our site. This commission doesn’t affect your playing experience in any way and helps us maintain a dedicated, expert team, focused on adding new comparison features, accurate operator research and helpful guides, features, news and stories.
