Short Bio About Ben

Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, on both counts. But the point remains – the Byrne-Boland double act is a native-English component in the wider NetEnt Casino machine, which features several different nationalities, each bringing their own excellent set of skills.

Originally from Norfolk in England, Ben has mainly lived in Malta since 2016, putting his writing abilities to use in the iGaming industry and developing a solid understanding of games, providers and bonuses along the way.

Ben’s main duties include keeping on top of NetEnt’s latest company news, researching and writing about upcoming games, and ensuring that all casino reviews are up to date and as informative as possible.

Ben' Casino Tips

Greetings, NetEnt fans! Though my writing experience is primarily news and sports-based, the last few years have allowed me to find out about the iGaming industry and all the different aspects of it. Most fascinating to witness has been the huge growth in technology – and that is something that is only going to continue.

These are my casino tips…

  • Do Your Homework

    Or at least allow us to. There is no need to head to an online casino blind these days, as all information and honest reviews are readily available at a few clicks. There are such a plethora of options available that you really do not have to settle for a website or game that is not a perfect fit – browse both here at NetEnt Casino.

  • Stay Safe

    The Internet can be a vast and confusing place and the last thing you want is to waste your time and/or money on a website that is unreliable.

    That is where our site comes into play, bringing honest reviews that cover all areas. It is advisable to give particular attention to the licenses that a casino holds, ensuring that it is reputable – though all our recommended casinos are safe to play at.

  • Take Advantage Of Opportunities

    If you are a player that is open to new opportunities then you will have plenty of options. New NetEnt games are always fun to try and most casinos will offer free play, meaning that a full demo of the game is available without you having to stake real cash.

    If slots are your thing, then many casino bonuses include a free spins element that will allow you to keep winnings. In short, it really is worth taking your time to find the offer that is suited to you.

  • Gamble Responsibly

    You will have read this cliché before, but it is too important to be ignored. Gambling should be a fun hobby and never become an unhealthy habit, so ensure that you are watching how much time you are spending on gambling sites – taking regular breaks – and only depositing within your means.

    All reputable casinos will have a range of measures to help you keep on top of your gambling, so do feel free to use these if you feel that you need some help.

Ben' Favourite Games

  • Cash Noire Logo EDITORS CHOICE Cash Noire
    This is a recent release from NetEnt that you can just tell will still be played in years to come. Great graphics and an atmospheric soundtrack make Cash Noire stand out.
  • Themed games based on television shows are becoming more commonplace and NetEnt hit it out of the park with Narcos - keep a look out for the character symbols!
  • NetEnt Live Casino logo EDITORS CHOICE Live Roulette
    NetEnt is not just a slots provider (though these are invariably excellent) and they have some excellent live dealer titles. Live Roulette is the pick of the bunch, in my humble opinion, and is open to players with no casino experience.

Life As An IGaming Content Writer

In simple terms, my role is to produce high-quality content that is both informative and easy to read. This includes potentially complex ideas, such as the terms and conditions of a bonus, and explaining it succinctly to visitors. I make it my mission to cut through the jargon and give you the salient points, allowing you to draw your own conclusion by checking out a casino for yourself.

From personal experience, I know how much dedication and effort from the whole team goes into ensuring that NetEnt Casino looks great, but is also regularly updated to ensure accuracy.

I am particularly interested in the growth of live casinos and the potential for them to become even more realistic in the coming years – and NetEnt’s software is likely to play a major part if the sale to Evolution Gaming goes through.

Ben’s Recommended Casinos

While every casino player is going to have their own reasons for playing at a particular website, there are some things that just can’t be ignored. Clearly, the range of games is a massive attraction and any self-respecting casino will have a selection of NetEnt titles to play, most likely slots.

That is all well and good, but to really stand out many players are rightly going to look at the welcome bonus, and whether it is worth their time registering. This is where our website comes into play – as with any comparison site, precision is key and we will always outline how strict wagering requirements are before you deposit any money.

That leads to my final point: payment methods. Nearly all casinos will accept Visa and MasterCard but you may like checking out those with cryptocurrencies or even no account casinos, which look like the way forward in terms of convenience.
