How to choose the best online casino?

This page hosts a list of online gambling sites and casinos that are not part of Gamstop. These external operators hold licences with places like Malta, Cyprus, Curacao, Gibraltar or other off-shore entities outside of the UK. Casinos that are not based in the UK should be approached with caution. These sites do not have the same level of safety as those licensed by the UKGC, as they are classified as non-Gamstop casinos. These gambling sites accept players from all over the world, including the UK, but they are not specifically targeted at British gamblers. They usually use euros as their currency rather than pounds sterling. The sole purpose of this web page is to provide feeless and straightforward self-exclusion from any gambling websites not included in Gamstop s scheme. The top list is for foreign residents living in the UK who want to play at a casino that isn t licensed by the UKGC. If you want to stop using these websites, we recommend that you manually block yourself from each casino not on the Gamstop list or explore our other self-exclusion options. For a general casino player, playing an online slot machine or live casino game for a few free spins is a great way to de-stress after work. For some people, gambling is not a casual activity--it s an addiction. Fortunately, the Gamstop scheme exists to help problem gamblers in Great Britain by allowing them to self-exclude from online casinos. If you or someone you know suffers from gambling addiction, encourage them to seek help through this program. If you re looking to gamble online, it s a smart move to sign up for Gamstop. Once you re registered, Gamstop will exclude you from all participating online gambling and casino sites. Right now, it s voluntary for casinos to register with Gamstop, so there are some that aren t included. Gamstop is a UK-based initiative, and currently, online casinos licenced in Malta, Cyprus, Curacao are not registered on Gamstop. The UKGC can’t force an individual to join the Gamstop scheme.

Euteller casinos have been the favorite gaming slots for many casino players for many years. Euteller is a service aimed at Finns, whose idea is to make it easier to pay online, and online casinos have been using this payment method for almost 15 years. Euteller casinos make use of online banking, but unlike regular bank transfers, Euteller casino is a much faster and more convenient guy for the job. One of the best things about the service is the short Euteller withdrawal duration, which is at best only a few minutes. Since Euteller is a Finnish payment method, of course the casinos that offer it are also particularly good choices for players who recognise the blue and white colour. Especially Finnish online casinos aimed exclusively at us have taken over this payment method, at least for deposits. One of the most important features of euteller-supported online casinos is that they are mostly Estonian or MGA licensed online casinos. If this didn t get your socks rolling yet, let s just say this is especially great because you can withdraw your winnings completely tax-free!

Stereo to Surround, Why? How? How Much?

Turning your stereo system into surround isnt always as easy as you think.

There you are with an Arcam, Rega, Naim or Linn stereo amp and 2 good speakers and all you need to do is change your amp and add some more speakers. Right? 

While you are right, it is that simple, often people don't understand that doing that while retaining or improving the quality you are used to isn't at all simple. 

Here are some examples of surround systems with 'proper speakers' that also sound great for music

Don't forget though that there are also really great stereo systems that can route your video HDMI signals and sound brilliant through just 2 speakers. Currently my cinema at home is running a Linn system in stereo, no centre, no sub, no rears, but awesome sound!


So what are the solutions?

Depends where you are, what you have, and the budget. 

To start a new system here are some options for you, £2000-3000


We love the Marantz NR 1711, it is brilliant value.

We use it with satellite, bookshelf and floorstanding speakers and it sounds really really good

Match with a Kef package bookshelf fronts Q350/Q650/Q150/Kube or floorstanding fronts, Q550, and there is an offer for either full Kef package


Going further? £ 3000-10000  

Move up to the next level with a specialist amplifier such as the marvellous Anthem or Arcam range, now on dem, and the whole system becomes clearer, punchier, and also better for music. Most people have Jap amps and never get to hear something this good so if you are serious about having a great cinema you need to check these out

Speakers should also be upgraded, the Kef R series are a wonderful match for better amplifiers
