The Online Casino of the Year election is organized by the websites CasinoNieuws.nl and OneTime. It is the brainchild of Frank Op de Woerd (editor-in-chief CasinoNieuws.nl) and Armijn Meijer (foreman OneTime).
The election is organized to find the best online casino in the Netherlands. The search is on for the best online casino in several categories:
Although CasinoNews and OneTime are the driving forces behind the election, they have no influence on the results. The public votes (50%) and jury votes (50%) determine who wins an award.
The websites CasinoNieuws and OneTime are websites that have relationships and agreements with online casinos in the Netherlands. However, this does not affect the outcome. All online casinos licensed by the Gaming Authority, are automatically nominated for the Online Casino of the Year election. Whether they have an agreement with CasinoNieuws.nl and/or OneTime or not. We explain further at Frequently Asked Questions.
The integrity of the election is guaranteed by openly revealing how the votes were cast. Through cryptography, anyone at home can verify that the election was fair. More information about how the voting works and what we have done to make it fair can be found on our integrity explanation page.
By hosting this contest, we want to make sure that consumers ultimately know which online casino is the best in the Netherlands. However, that doesn’t mean we close our eyes to the risks involved in playing at online casinos. On our Play responsibly page, we take a closer look at the dangers and give tips on what you can do if you feel you have lost control of your gambling behavior.
The results of the election will be announced on July 12, 2023. During a festive afternoon in Amsterdam, the winners will be presented with a trophy.
