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!

I haven't written much about Sonus Faber loudspeakers so their updating of the popular Sonetto range to Gen2 is a great reason to do so.

FYI it's pronounced Fab-er not Fabe-er, I'm told.

Made in Italy by true craftsmen Sonus Faber produce the most beautiful cabinets around.

We have found a steady stream of happy clients for Sonetto and the new range promises to continue this.

Visually the cabinets are very similar, keeping their famous lute shape.

There are technical improvements to the drive units and as a result they sound cleaner than the current range, which I already like and enjoy.

Their press release is a bit flowery for me: relentless pursuit of sonic excellence, bespoke approach to design, elevates the audio to new heights, ensuring 100% sound purity, innovative approach ensures a seamless flow of sound waves, precise control over sound propagation and resonance, all pretty meaningless faff, perhaps it was written by AI !

What does mean something is the 'internal cork chamber'. This is to break up the sound from the back of the treble and midrange units internally. If you were a manufacturer who looked at Kef's meta material and thought 'that's a bloody good idea' this is one approach you could take. The curved internals of the Sonnetto already helps in this respect.


Sonetto 1

There is also a new base made of concrete which looks great and makes the cabinet more stable

Other improvements include a new midrange unit with a phase plug in the middle and new drive unit surrounds.

Sonetto G2 - Synergy Audio

Sonnetto V

Of course all these improvements cost money and the respective models have increased in price. I also have a few of the Gen1 models here available to go at reduced prices.

The new line ups comprises:

  • Sonetto I small standmount: £1,750/pair
  • Sonetto II bigger standmount: £2,200/pair
  • Sonetto III slim floorstander: £4,000/pair
  • Sonetto V slim with an extra bass unit  floorstander: £5,500/pair
  • Sonetto VIII large floorstander: £7,000/pair
  • Sonetto Centre channel: £2,250/each
  • Sonetto On Wall speaker: £1,150/each

Sonetto I-II G2 speaker stand: £800/pair

New models will start arriving from July onwards, call in for a listen

Or snaffle a pair of the current Sonnetto 1s for only £1150 down from £ 1450
