UK Casino Guide

UK Casino Guide ScreenshotThe UK Casino Guide is one of my most ambitious projects to date. As you might be able to guess from the name, the site is a guide to both online and brick and mortar casinos in the UK.

There are currently two distinct sections to the site (with plans to add a third casino games section in early 2013):

  • Online Casinos – This section is dedicated to online casinos and features reviews of each casino along with details of the bonuses and promotions on offer. There is also the potential to add user reviews to the casinos, but this is something I would do once the site is more established.
  • Brick & Mortar Casinos – In this section users can search for nearby casinos using an interactive map, or filter them by town. Each individual casino comes with location details as well as user reviews. When I get round to it I will also add custom descriptions to each casino, but this is a daunting task I’ve been putting off for quite a while – it might be time to hire someone to do it for me!

Both sections need to be significantly expanded and the site is nowhere near finished – this has always been a long term project that I plan on working on slowly. If the model is successful I intend on making similar sites for other countries, and/or a world wide casino directory.

One of the hardest things I’ve found with the B&M section of the site is getting users to leave reviews of casinos. I’ve had to resort to various tactics to get reviews – including asking people, running competitions and bribing friends with beer.

On that subject, if you happen to have visited a UK casino at any point and fancy writing an honest review, I’d be most appreciative (hint hint).
