Who Were the Best Newcomers of 2020?

We made it! 2020 is done, and it is time to celebrate. While this was hardly the best year for, well, anything… the casino industry did not fall asleep.

New Casinos Awards 2020

We reviewed well over 100 different new casinos from 2020. We can hardly believe it. A year that started off so slow, gradually impressed us more and more with its output.

Of course, our UK readers got a smaller selection; but we are still talking of over 20 new casinos licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. Not bad at all, and each is of course compliant to their strict standards.

It is time to celebrate the greatest achievements of the year that was, and the winners of our New Casinos Awards 2020 are now out! Follow the link to see what our readers voted forth as the best casino of 2020.

We want to take this opportunity to give the best casinos of last year a closer look and make sure you didn’t miss any potential favourites. On this page, we will therefore give you a clear overview of our favourite casinos of last year, as well as reveal our most compared and most visited casinos.

Our Experts Speak: Best New Casinos 2020

Editor's Pick 2020

This is the most exciting set to reveal: the 5 casinos our experts have selected as the very best of 2020. This is based on their thorough assessment of each attribute and feature, from the bonuses to the game selection, to design and features to the customer support. In other words: the complete package.

Casino Friday – Winner

Casino Friday is the brightest and happiest casino we saw last, and the user experience is simply top-notch. They also offer more than 2,500 games, from a massive list of developers, giving you all the variety you’d ever need.

The bonuses are the only thing ordinary about this casino, but more campaigns are around the corner. It is also worth mentioning they host top-notch tournaments, for extra excitement.


AmunRa is a colossal casino with more than 3,000 games and a massive welcome package. They have a loyalty program, open for all, and even better: they offer 10% cashback every single week.

The design is rock-solid, making it easy to browse through the incredible game library, and even more so: the atmosphere is turned up to 100. They also have all the key payment methods you’d need, and so much, much more.

Casino Days

Casino Days is a relaxing casino, with a light, pleasant design and a lot going on under the hood. They have more than 2,000 games, including an excellent live casino, but the most exciting thing about them is their use of cryptocurrencies.

At present they allow you to play with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and XRP: and you can deposit directly from your cryptoaccount. Casino Days is undoubtedly the best crypto casino of last year, but was cut short by only having an adequate welcome bonus.

Mr Bit

Mr Bit is a gorgeous and futuristic casino, with their own sports section. They win us over with their almost endless collection of promotions. This includes a loyalty program and up to 10% cashback. Hell, they even give out birthday bonuses.

The game selection is rock-solid, with more than 2,000 games and a strong live casino. The welcome offer gives a nice boost on each of your first three deposits, and if you needed an even better reason to get excited Mr Bit also allows bitcoins.

Swift Casino

Swift Casino delivers on the design, and creates a wonderful, classic atmosphere. However, it is the VIP lounge and their constant tournaments and daily picks that really sets them apart from the competition.

The welcome bonus and game selection may be a bit on the average side, but with a great minimalist look, and once again: their incredible VIP lounge, it is very easy to be won over.

Most Visited Casino Reviews 2020

Most Visited Casino 2020

Expert opinion is one thing, but what about cold, hard facts? We always keep track of just which casino reviews cause the most excitement among our readers. We can not give you the actual number of readers as that is secret, hush-hush information, but we can tell you our top 5.

One Casino – Winner

One Casino is the only one on this list that actually went the extra step and offers no deposit bonus for everyone who registers. Even better, they have fairly low wagering requirements and a VIP/Loyalty program called “Club One”.

The game selection is a little limited but improved tremendously by the fact that they also develop their own. That’s right: they have exclusive in-house games.


Casoola is without a doubt one of the most fun new casinos on the market. It is undoubtedly the exciting design that caught our readers’ attention. However, that’s not all they have under the hood.

This is a casino that sports a colossal welcome package and is complete with a large selection of payment methods and fast cashouts. There are 1,300+ casino games to choose from, including a live casino provided by Netent. They may not be the biggest casino of last year, but it has everything needed for a fun time.

Lucky Vegas

Lucky Vegas is likely the most classic casino on this list. We are almost surprised they garnered as much attention as they did: but what can we say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.

They sport a modest but good welcome bonus, 1,600+ casino games and an excellent live casino.

It is also really important to point out that Lucky Vegas actually has a VIP club. In other words: they take loyalty seriously. You will get automatic access but grow over time as you wager. Your own VIP account manager and exclusive bonus offers await.

Swift Casino

We can see why Swift Casino gathered so much attention: they are already nominated to Editor’s Pick! This is another casino that offers the classic gaming experience. The excitement here once again comes from a strong VIP lounge. The focus on loyalty is one of the great trends of 2020, and one we can tell many of our readers appreciate.

The game selection only hits 1,000, but with constant tournaments and daily picks, it feels much grander. The minimalist look is also a major win for many, and the general user experience is through the roof.

Viva Fortunes

Viva Fortunes also has a loyalty program, see what we are talking about when we said this was the trend?! The best part about it is that as soon as you reach level 4 you start to cashback. It is paid out every month and can be a great consolation price and boost for the coming month.

While the game selection is not colossal they have a strong live casino and get new games from all the key game providers. The design is simple and easy, and customer support is available for you 24/7.

Most Compared Casinos 2020

Most Compared Casinos 2020

One of our proudest moments in 2020 was launching our revolutionary casino comparison tool. It allows you to compare every single casino we have ever reviewed, and see which casinos actually have the best offers.

It is a great way to benchmark casinos and lets you see their key attributes and an overview of their strengths and weaknesses side by side.

We are incredibly happy you loved using the tool as much as we loved making it. Thank you! And to honour the system we have decided to go into our data and pull out the 4 most compared new casinos of 2020.

Viva Fortunes – Winner

Viva Fortunes is shockingly the only UK licensed casino in this batch – and, the only casino listed on both most visited and most compared. There is something about Viva Fortunes that just set people’s imagination on fire.

It is worth noting that they are part of the well-respected 888 Group. This makes them a great casino to benchmark against. Still, those comparing it against other top casinos will see an oddly smaller game selection; under 1,000 games and a bonus that does not drive overt enthusiasm. Still, this is a really well-made and user-friendly casino: and we can see why it connected so well with our readers.

Cobra Casino

Cobra Casino is one of the very best live casinos of last year. They sport more than 250 live games, out of a total game selection of 1,500+. This is a casino it is so exciting to compare to others: as it really has it all.

They sport a massive welcome package, regular promotions and VIP program and cashback. To top it all off: they are crypto-friendly. The only negative is that they at present only hold a Curacao licence.

SlottoJam Casino

SlottoJam sports a modest welcome bonus, but also comes packing a VIP program. They are one of the casinos that compare less well; and we are intrigued as to why our users kept looking into them: perhaps for that very reason.

The game selection sports a little over 1,000 games and the design is quite colourful (pink) and busy. Payment options are a big strength, with a big set of various options, a low minimum withdrawal and a max 24 hour processing time.

Slotum Casino

Slotum is one of the casinos that get a lot more impressive once you start looking under the hood. They may not have the best bonus offers, but what they do have is one of last year’s best game selections.

You can choose between more than 4,000 different games. They are also one of the very best when it comes to payouts, promising a processing time of 5 minutes or less. Now that is just incredible.
