About our New Gambling Sites page

Players are increasingly versatile beings which is why we’ve continued to expand what we’re offering our players from WDW Bingo, WDW Slots to WDW Casino. This brilliant new page is a recognition of the diversity of our player’s needs and a foray into what we may end up calling WDW Bet!

Our “new sites” pages are very well regarded because we are industry leaders in trawling the web and our partners for new gambling sites. No one works harder at sourcing new brands. All you have to do is take a look at competitor comparison site listings to see how stale and misleading they often are!

If you want to explore our “new sites” strength or you have a more streamlined idea of the type of new brand you want to sign up at, check out our fantastically popular “new” selections. Each of these pages has thousands of visitors a month. Players also return week to week because they like our brand and know that we’re going to have something new to offer them every time they come back. These are:

If we list something on our “new” pages, we genuinely believe it has something new to offer the player. We recognise where our players are and where they want to go.

This exciting, first of its kind hybrid list shows you the absolute best of the breadth of our industry right now. Whether you’re a bettor, a spinner or a high roller at the table, our new gambling sites for UK players page is your number one destination.

How we put together and rate our listings

As always, we have a holistic but thorough approach to our page listings. With the new gambling sites page in particular, we’re taking into account more variables than ever before.

We believe that a player who’s searching for “new gambling sites” may be looking for something quite different than another player who’s searched for the exact same thing. Every player is unique!

Therefore we’ve included every type of brand with every type of welcome package under the sun on this page. A player may have arrived on the page looking for one thing (eg. to make a bet), and ended up finding something they like the look of more, like a handsome match bonus but the site has a sportsbook so they can make a bet later.

However, we understand that there are some basic tenets a player who’s come to us will be looking for on this page, and we do not take that lightly. These are our “commandments.”

Four Commandments

  • A genuinely new element for the player. This is usually a brand new site. However, if we believe there’s something that’s truly novel for the player, we will list it. That could include a mindblowing new welcome package, a massive relaunch and redesign, or a new product has been added to the site.
  • Quality Product. We believe any site we list has to offer some intrinsic value to the player. A product we deem bad and can therefore not endorse in some way will not appear on this page.
  • Licensed in the UK. This list is exclusively composed of new UK gambling sites for players based in the United Kingdom. Whether or not a casino has made itself available within UK borders is neither here nor there. If it is not a reputable site that’s fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, it will not appear on this website. Simple as!
  • A welcome offer befitting our players. We’ll explore what makes a good welcome package further down this article (and provide links to plenty of supporting articles where we’ve covered this topic in great detail before). Suffice to say, that different players will be looking for different types of welcome offer so what’s good for the goose is not necessarily what floats the gander’s boat. Excuse the many mixed metaphors… Whether your “good bonus” criterion is a large match bonus, lots of free bets or fair free spins, we’ll feature a range of what we consider to be good. But there won’t be any bad or unfair bonuses on this list!

Brand Spotlight of the Month

Every month, we shed some light on our favourite new gambling site. In May 2024, our spotlight is firmly pointed towards StarSports. Running on the Playbook platform, this site is a perfect example of a new betting site based on a great high street brand (in Star Racing) that has also introduced a great casino product and acquisition offer. Great sports betting, great slots and live casino – now that’s what makes it one of the best new gambling sites and our “star” in May 2024!

Our other top picks for May 2024 include:

Gambling Payment Methods

From our data, we know that players often have strong opinions about the deposit and withdrawal methods available to them.

In the past, withdrawal terms especially could really influence their choice of payment method. Thankfully, banking terms more generally are getting fairer to players as consumer rights become stronger and more enshrined in the law.

Whether there are more favourable terms on a specific payment method or you simply have a preference, we want to match you up with the right brand that suits your financial situation.

In general, there are four main types of payment method for depositing a new casino or betting site; Debit card, E-wallets, bank transfer and pay by mobile.

Notice we specified debit card as UKGC gambling sites no longer accept credit card payments. This important piece of legislation came into effect in 2020 in order to protect vulnerable players. Although it may be frustrating for some players, we really believe that it’s a net positive. Players should never be in a position to gamble money they can’t afford. This is an important guardrail.

We’ll talk a little more about our favourite e-wallet and bank transfer payment methods, and show you specific category listings where you will find the best gambling sites that accept PayPal, Paysafecard and the like.

We’ll also answer the all important question; what gambling sites accept phone bill? Hint: not too many but there are some goodies!

The best payment methods are also quality markers. For example, if a gambling site accepts PayPal, then you know it’s a trustworthy, well regulated site. Our other favourite E-wallets are Paysafecard and Neosurf.

If you’re more interested in transferring money via a bank system, your best option is to use Trustly.

In terms of simplicity and universality, there’s really nothing better than depositing and withdrawing via debit card. Every single gambling site we feature accepts debit card and you’ll always be able to claim an acquisition offer with a card, even if you can’t with lower quality e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller.

Licencing & Legitimacy in  the UK

Although we repeat this in practically every single one of our listings articles, so that there is no room for doubt we’ll say it again for those at the back. Every single brand, including all new gambling sites, that we list is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. The UKGC, founded in 2005 at the dawn of the liberalisation of the UK’s online sector, is one of the world’s premier regulatory bodies.

As we are a comparison site specifically catered to UK players in the UK market, we want you to know that all the site’s listed are 100% legal in this country. There is no ambiguity at all in what we offer. Legal sites for legal players!

Just because all of our sites are legal and regulated, it doesn’t mean that they’re all as good, fair and trustworthy as each other. That’s why we exist to serve you! We want to show you the brands of quality with objective facts to back it up. You want to see the best new UK gambling sites and we serve them up to you on a platter, especially if the platter also had a numbered ranking of the best dishes of food. Now, we’re really starting to mix our metaphors!

Safety & Trustworthiness

In a crowded market, it can be hard to decipher what new gambling sites are worth your time and money. Officially sanctioned comparison sites like ours can help as we only list the most trusted online gambling sites. As we discussed, being a licensed and regulated brand is a crucial first hurdle to being listed on our site. A non-UK licensed brand is disqualified from our listings. However, it is not the be all and end all; in fact it’s just the beginning.

We first appraise trustworthiness when we’re onboarding a new brand. When we’re joining forces with a new partner, if we don’t trust them, then what hope do the players have!

As long as we’re happy that we can work together with mutual trust, then we examine closely the brand’s relationship with its players. For example, the questions we’re interested in are:

  • Does the brand respect quick and easy withdrawals?
  • Are due diligence checks performed robustly and securely but with minimal friction to the player?
  • Are bonus terms and wagering requirements clear and fair?
  • What would happen to a player’s funds in the unfortunate and unlikely event of the business going bankrupt? Are they protected?

We explore that last point in more detail in our safe and trusted bingo sites article, which explains the different levels of protection that players are afforded at different brands according to Gambling Commission metrics. These are the conditions for the safest online gambling sites as per the UKGC.

Tech, Mobile Readiness & User Experience

If you’re reading this article, there’s an 80-90% chance you are doing so on your mobile phone. We know that because we get an anonymous breakdown of statistics from players visiting from Google.

This would have been unheard of 10 years ago but technology and thus playing habits have evolved dramatically. All the sites we list in 2024 are mobile optimised and offer a great, if not better, experience on mobile than on desktop.

I can speak from personal experience that it’s crucial to be able to easily bet on the go. In fact the last two times that I have been to a horse racing meet (Ascot and Goodwood), I have made made online bets on my mobile phone rather than schlepping over to the bookies! Equally I could have these bets while sitting on the bus watching a live feed (which the best online betting and gambling sites have). Or in the comfort of my own home!

All listed new gambling sites come with a mobile first guarantee – that’s our promise!

The quality of the interface and navigability is a factor in how we rank our listings.

Different types of Welcome Offers & Free Bets

On this page, you’ll find an array of different types of welcome offers as we cater to all different kinds of gamblers.

For the first time on WDW, we’ll be showcasing new betting welcome offers including, most commonly, free bets.

When signing up and making a first deposit at a new betting site, there are different types of free bets you may receive. In some cases, the free bets will be matched to the amount you deposit and bet in the first instance.

For example, if you deposited and wagered through £20 on your first deposit, you may then be entitled to £20 worth of free bets to spend as you please elsewhere. Frequently these have no wagering requirements attached, although you are unlikely to get the value of the bet back, which you would in a normal bet.

Another type of free bet offer includes receiving a certain number of free bets of set value in return for signing up and depositing. For example, if you’ve deposited and bet £20, you’ll receive 3 free bets worth £5 each. Again, you’re unlikely to get the value of the bet back, but otherwise there tends to be no strings attached.

Sometimes at new betting and gambling sites, you may get a free bets combo offer with some free spins or other such perks like a prize wheel spin or scratch cards.

How do these offers differ from slots bonuses?

For the vast majority of our casino and slot site listings, these brands offer match bonuses on slot play and/or free spins. Free bets are eligible for betting and the bonus can’t be transferred to other games like slots. Free bets tend not to be beholden to the large wagering requirements that casino bonuses are.

However, given that we now list so many new UK gambling sites that have sportsbook and casino, we’re hoping to have more brands which have a combination of both.

Fafabet offer such a welcome bonus that we list exclusively. Whenever we have these types of offers, you will find them on this page!

At WDW, we have loads of information about casino bonusing. Find more information on these pages:

Competitive Odds – Comparing the Market

The competitiveness of the odds offered at a betting site are crucial. The sites we list on this page have certifiably good odds but the sites with more competitive odds will appear higher in the listing.

How To: Signing up at a new site

Signing up to a new site, whether sportsbook or casino, couldn’t be easier! The majority of modern, mobile gambling sites have very simple, streamlined registration processes with step by step instructions. In the first instance, you’ll be prompted to give your name and email address as well as a password for your new account.

This common first step will then be followed by giving some further details including address, occupation information and payment details. Whether the site you’re signing up for has a no deposit offer or not, you’ll still be required to give card details but you won’t be charged until you actively make a first deposit.

Any of the gambling sites featured on this page will have a straightforward registration process, whether you are new to gambling or not.

If you’re claiming a welcome bonus, you’ll be guided into making the requisite first deposit and given further instructions about wagering before your bonus can be redeemed.

Once you’re signed up and into your account, you’re most likely to find an “Offers” tab which is where you’ll be able to redeem your welcome package.

Further down the line, you will likely be required to “verify” your account. This may be in the form of confirming contact details, providing identity documents and undergoing affordability checks.

Placing your first bet

This is a simple process, even if you’re brand new to online betting sites. Navigate the sports and events that you’re interested in. Head to a match, contest or tournament and you’ll find odds to bet on. This will vary from tiny things, such as who is going to win the next game in a tennis match, to more far reaching outright bets, such as who is going to win the Football World Cup.

Click on the odds of the event and you’ll be given the opportunity to place a bet on it. You can choose the amount you bet, provided you have funds deposited in your account. It will then tell you your potential returns should you win. Confirm the bet and you’ll be able to find all the details in your betslip. Check your account for all your upcoming, ongoing and finished bets.

Many of the betting providers offer the chance to “Cash-out” of your bet early. This will always be less than your potential full winnings but will vary heavily depending on the state of the bet.

Many betting sites also offer the chance to place Accumulator bets or ACCAs. Though you place one bet, a win is contingent on many elements of the bet coming through. For example, you may place one bet on four different football match results on the same day. Although the odds of everything going your way are lengthened, you will get a higher return should your ACCA bet come through.

Most popular sports to bet on

The most popular sports to bet on are:

  • Football
  • Horse Racing
  • Greyhound Racing
  • Tennis
  • Formula 1
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
