Top Five UK Online Casinos For Newcomers

Wednesday 15th June 2022

The UK is one of the most pro-betting countries in the world and has some fantastic online casinos from which to pick.

If you’re a beginner and unsure where to start, we’ve got some top recommendations for you to consider.

Mr Green Casino

A household name well-known from advertising campaigns, Mr Green Casino is a great online casino for British players just starting out in the world of online betting.

Players can set up deposit and loss limits to ensure that if luck is against them they don’t unwittingly stray too far into the red, and the help centre is there to answer common queries. Players who display a risky betting pattern may be encouraged to either take a break or alter their limits, and this approach saw the casino win multiple awards for its responsible attitude towards safe gambling, which is particularly important in the current economic environment.

Newcomers are welcomed to Mr Green Casino with 50 free spins (note that, as per all promotions in this article, these change regularly so be sure to check bonus details when considering signing up).

One of the best aspects of this site is the enormous selection of casino games from an impressive array of different studios, which offer different approaches to gameplay mechanics, art styles, sound design, and themes. On top of that, there are some Mr Green exclusive games that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

If that sounds a little overwhelming just check out the casino’s How To Play section for a straightforward rundown of the rules for various game types, or the Learn More About section which offers insights into slots, roulette, and blackjack. Beyond the regular casino, there’s a live category for those who like the real-world atmosphere mingled with online convenience, and there’s a sports wing too.

Leo Vegas Casino

With its tawny colour scheme and leonine iconography, Leo Vegas is a highly rated operator that lives up to its lion-like name.

For newcomers in the United Kingdom, it’s also one of the best places to start with a welcome bonus which, at the time of writing, includes 50 free spins and up to £100. There’s also a fun Leo King prediction bonus, which is free to enter and sees players try and forecast sporting results to win a share of £1,000.

A particularly nice little feature for beginners to betting is that there’s a concise casino blog that explains a lot of the basics and can be checked out without needing to sign in or register, and something similar for sports betting.

There’s a range of different betting types accessible at Leo Vegas with a casino, live casino, and sports betting. This makes it a convenient pick for those after a single stop for their betting needs. Because it’s a multi-developer site, with games from big hitters including Microgaming, Playtech, and NetEnt, there’s both a great deal of variety and a huge range of choices when it comes to slots, the main attraction of any online casino.

Among the most persistently popular picks are NetEnt’s Starburst, Play’N Go’s Book of Dead, and Microgaming’s Mega Moolah (a progressive jackpot slot that has made more millionaires than any other). In addition to slots, the site offers traditional table games like blackjack, roulette, craps, and baccarat, and the live casino has TV-style gameshows such as Dream Catcher. And there are seven bingo options to try.

888 Casino

The darker theme of 888 Casino is easier on the eyes than some others, and this decades-old online casino also has a lot to like on the gaming front.

All the best online casinos have a wide variety of payment methods to suit individual preferences, but the selection at 888 Casino is notably extensive. New players can also take advantage of 88 free spins just for signing up, or a 100% match bonus up to £100. As a recurring promo, the site has comp points which are earnt as users play, and can be redeemed for cash. In short, it’s a little reward for what you’d be doing anyway.

888 Casino has some exclusive slots, and its general game suite is pretty well-furnished too thanks to slots and more from big hitters NetEnt, Playtech, Red Tiger, and Play’n Go. These include great progressive jackpot slots offering lottery-sized prizes from the likes of Mad Max Fury Road, Gladiator, Aztec Realm, and Noche De Los Muertos, among others (including Playtech’s classic Age of the Gods series).

Live casino fans are in for a treat as the gaming tables here are very numerous indeed (over 180 for blackjack alone). In addition to the old-school table games, 888 Casino has 20 separate options for gameshows.

William Hill Casino

Another top online casino for new players in the United Kingdom is one that might be more associated with sports betting, but old-school bookie William Hill (founded in 1934) also has a great casino.

Online tournaments are not just for table games, and William Hill, at the time of writing, offers a slots promo that rewards players who top leaderboards for particular games with free spins. Meanwhile, the Strike Gold bonus can provide a prize with any spin, with thousands of cash rewards and a daily top prize of £5,000. And, just for newly registered players, there’s 100 free spins on Fishin’ Pots of Gold (£10 stake required).

Slots come in various themes, such as the classic Egyptian antics of Eye of Horus: the Golden Tablet. Everyone loves fish and chips and if you like angling too then be sure to check out Big Bass Bonanza Megaways. There are also a lot of scratchcards if that’s your bag and a whole category set aside for jackpot games. Table games are accessible in both regular and live editions, and William Hill Casino has separate sections for poker and bingo specifically.

Naturally, one of the biggest draws of the site is the sports betting side, which (given William Hill’s heritage) is just as impressive as you would expect and makes this an ideal place for newcomers who want to combine casino and sports betting.

Mr Play Casino

The attractive young lady wearing a comedy moustache on the home page of Mr Play Casino shows off the light-hearted and fun approach of this casino and sports betting site right from the start.

Newcomers who sign up can look forward to 100 extra spins and bonus cash of up to £200.

Among the most popular games to play are the sanguine romance of Microgaming’s vampiric game Immortal Romance, Gonzo’s Quest by NetEnt (and its updated Megaways-enhanced version), and Play’n Go’s Egyptian smash hit Book of Dead. There’s also plenty of roulette and blackjack if you’re an old-school player, and a live casino section as well. Scratch cards are also on the betting menu, and there’s an extensive sports betting section to boot where you can put money on football, F1, and many other sports besides.

The UK has many great online casinos and these are among the best for beginners just starting out their betting journey. Just remember to keep a tight eye on your bankroll.
