About Us

NoDepositFan is run by a tight-knit team with a wealth of experience in iGaming.

Each staff member has had a decorated career at prominent online casinos and sportsbooks and brings valuable insights and expertise to the team. Together, we strive to provide players with unbiased reviews, useful guides and articles and generous bonuses.

Put simply, our vision is to create the most comprehensive site for anything related to online gambling, with a particular emphasis on free bonuses that allow you to play more and have fun.
The operation is spearheaded by Simon Li – an avid gambling enthusiast who’s held managerial positions at some of the world’s largest online gambling companies for more than a decade. It’s safe to say Simon knows the business inside out, and with our committed and knowledgeable team helping him out, he works tirelessly to find the best casinos and bonuses out there.

Our Ethos

At NoDepositFan, we adhere to three simple principles that are never compromised:

  • We only list licensed and reputable casinos.
  • We write unbiased reviews.
  • We encourage responsible gambling at all times.

Read on to learn how we maintain these principles.

License and Reputation Is Paramount

Our first priority is to only list casinos that are not only licensed, but also have an excellent reputation.

Once we’ve established that a casino is licensed by a respected gambling authority such as the UK Gambling Commission or the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), we carry out background checks to see if it has ever been fined, had its license revoked or been rightfully criticised by players in trusted online forums.

A valid gambling license alone does not convince us of consistently good conduct. And if a casino has a history of stalling payments or manipulating bonus terms to deprive players of their bonus wins, we won’t list it on our site.

Unbiased and Objective Reviews

When writing reviews, we judge each casino according to the same criteria. Therefore, our reviews are never biased but factual and backed by data.

The truth is that few casinos excel in all areas, despite what you might have read on other sites. There’s almost always something that can be improved, and we like to paint an accurate picture by highlighting both a casino’s strengths and its weaknesses. For us, it’s important you make an informed choice before registering or claiming a bonus.

We want to make it abundantly clear that NoDepositFan is an affiliate website. This means that we make profit by charging commissions on the traffic we send to our partners.

However, contrary to many of our competitors, we don’t believe in bending the truth for the sake of making a quick buck. On the contrary, our long-term vision is to cement ourselves as the most factual, reliable, and accurate source for both new and experienced players.

Responsible Gambling

We appreciate that we have an important role to play when it comes to encouraging responsible gambling.

As much as we love online gambling, we’re acutely aware of the pitfalls that come with compulsive gambling. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to play responsibly and use the various responsible gambling tools provided by each casino.

We also encourage you to read the casino’s responsible gambling pages and do a quick self-test to make sure you’re playing responsibly.

A Final Word From The Team

We hope our hard work will let you play longer and have more fun. Remember to play responsibly and that it’s all about having fun. And oh yeah – good luck!
