About Safest Casino Sites

Safest Casino Sites launched in 2012. This is not our first website that publishes truthful reviews from the point of view of a player. We launched SafestPokerSites in 2012. That site helped expose some of the shadiest poker sites in the online poker world, including Lock Poker, Everleaf Gaming, Absolute Poker, and Ultimate Bet. We keep a detailed list of sites that have closed down without paying players.

The goal at Safest Casino Sites is exactly the same. We write our reviews with the hope of helping players avoid scams. If a casino site does not pay, we tell you. If its support is incompetent, it is right there in the review. We do not hold back like some other review sites that are simply in it for the money.

Who Wrote the Reviews?

The author of many of the reviews is John Mehaffey. He has been in the online gaming industry since the early 2000’s. While his focus is poker, he is also an advocate of fair casino play. He has lobbied hard for regulated online casinos in the United States.

He has been a member of the Casinomeister forum since 2002 where he was invited to join the Casinomeister Advisory Group. Players that are invited to join this exclusive club give input into casino policies and actions.

John has also been a moderator of Two Plus Two. That is where he helped players find the best poker rakeback deal without getting cheated by rogue affiliates.

John’s favorite game is blackjack. That is because he has the basic strategy memorized and the edge is so low. Craps is another exciting game he enjoys, where he always plays the don’t pass. Video poker that has good pay tables is another fun way for him to pass the time. His favorite video poker game is Joker Poker.

He calls Las Vegas home. He finds the newest games and analyzes them while they are still in the testing stage. His favorite game to hit the market in the past few years is Free Bet Blackjack. In that game, players get free double downs and splits. To account for this, the dealer pushes on 22.
