It has been a few weeks since we took a deeper look at an entertainment and/or gaming website. Today I was introduced to GamblingReviews.com. First, lets take a look at their homepage (click for a larger look):

website reviews

Right when you get there, you can see that the website is geared towards fans of online casinos for usa players.

Website Reviews Also

The website is a nexus for online casino reviews and gambling news.  They strive to help USA players to find the “best” online casinos. Right when you enter the website, you’ll notice their top 10 ranked online casinos. They list the software the casinos use, the bonus involved with playing there, and a link to download it. Under this the website shares information on online casinos for players from USA that are unsure about online casinos and gambling. Personally, I know nothing about this type of gaming.

The left side of the page is broken down into three categories, each with their own links. Pictured to the right of this text. Once again, feel free to click the image for a larger look at the links bar.

The top category is for Popular Pages, and includes links to “Online Casino Reviews”, “UK & Euro Casinos”, “Poker Room”, “UK & Euro Poker”, “Gambling Forum”, and “Gambling News”. The next category lists Popular Games, included are “Baccarat”, “Bingo”, “Keno”, “Poker”, and more than 10 other games spotlighted.  The final category is the Beginners Guide, which includes links for “Do’s & Don’ts”, “eCogra”, “Microgaming”, “Playtech”, and “RTG”.

The website is very clean, with matches pages throughout the website. The Popular Games pages are mostly text and describe the games in detail. Some include links to online casinos that offer said game.  GamblingReviews.com is a good destination for beginners, just as always with casino related websites, be careful which links you click and what you download.

Continuing with My Hollywood Dream’s weekly review of entertainment websites, today I’m taking a look at Gambling PhD (www.GamblingPhD.com). The website is a guide that reviews online casinos and gambling websites along with posting daily news and betting advice for gamblers. Yeah, I am reviewing a website that reviews other websites. Until last week, I really didn’t realize just how big the online casino world was. Gambling PhD makes it a point to tell visitors to be careful with the sites they use for gambling.

Right when you open the page, you are taken here…

They jump right into things with mini reviews and links to nine different online casinos. Included in the mix are Aladdin’s Gold, VIP Slots, Go Casino, Rushmore Casino, Cherry Red Casino, and Golden Casino (to name a few). These particular reviews are short, and give visitors basic information on these casinos.

On the left side of the page is a list of links (as pictured below – click to enlarge as usual):

Links

The top link, Online Gambling PhD, takes us to a top 10 list of online casinos.  The next link, Casino Reviews, takes us to a longer list of 20 casinos with reviews along with a detailed “Introduction to Online Casino Gambling.” This introduction is great for people like me who have never had any contact with online casinos.  It has a warning of what to look out for to ensure that you are playing on a licensed website. Moving down on the links list you’ll find gambling tips, history, and a ton of general casino/gambling information.  The bottom link that reads “Daily Tips” has an archive of the website’s Tip of the Day. On this page you’ll find links to detailed info on such subjects as “Blackjack Card Counting”, “Perks”, “Keno Tips”, “Gambling Discipline”, and “Video Poker in the Nutshell” to name a few.

Overall, Gambling PhD is a good introduction to people that are unfamiliar with the world of Online Casinos. The website doesn’t have the best design, but it does supply visitors with a lot of information on the subject.

Today I took the time to check out Casinos-R-Us (www.Casinos-RUs.com), a website that is devoted to helping people make travel arrangements to casinos around the US and is a guide to gambling in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, along with other casinos and even Internet gambling.

Right when you enter the website you are greeted by this page:

Casinos R Us

This page has a welcome to the site. The first thing I noticed was just how basic the page was. A very simple website that is not trying to be overly flashy. No gawky glitter logos or annoying ads that flicker. After checking out a half dozen websites that have to do with casinos in the past week, it is refreshing to see a site that is not trying too hard.

The site gives us some basic information here, they have ties to some really impressive hotels on the Las Vegas strip, including Paris, Bally’s, Caesar’s Palace, Flamingo, Harrah’s and The Rio.  The Casino Tours that the site offers happen three times a year (in the spring and fall) and leave from three key locations; Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC. If you’d like to plan a trip from another city, the site lets you customize a trip from anywhere to one of the listed hotels. Because they book rooms in bulk, they get better prices than you or I would get by walking into one of the casinos.

When you click on the links for more information on the tours leaving from Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC, you are taken to this page:

Second Page Casinos R Us

This page is even more basic than the first page. A bit too basic and it doesn’t fit the style of the other page. It tells customers to call for a reservation, but doesn’t list a contact phone number on this page. It does have an email on the bottom for contacting though. Just curious, I checked out the contact page off the homepage, but it doesn’t have a phone number either, just a contact form.

Overall, the site has a lot of basic information about what Casinos-R-Us offers, but it is lacking depth and the site design is too basic for its own good. If you are looking for a Las Vegas casino tour that leaves from Pittsburgh & Erie, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC, than you might want to contact them for more information and rates.
