Habibibet Editorial Principles

Habibibet has a wonderful team of editorial staff that fact-checks every single article before publishing. Most of our team has at least a couple years of experience in the casino industry and have mostly written exclusively about the gambling industry for Arabs.

The team at Habibibet stands for:

  • Quality:
    We maintain quality by making sure our reviews and articles stay up-to-date and only use information from reputable sources to ensure we bring you the best content.

  • Responsibility:
    We have a strong commitment to responsible gambling. We will always recommend you to play responsibly and we strive to educate our readers on how to do this.

  • Transparency:
    Open communication is key! We let you know that we receive a commission when you click on our links and make a deposit in a casino.

  • Integrity:
    We are truthful and honest in our work. If we notice a casino doing shady things, we will rewrite the review if necessary.

  • Autonomy:
    Even though Habibibet is an affiliate site, our ratings and reviews are not biased in any way. We test and review each casino according to our rating guidelines, and are not afraid to call out bad casinos.

How were our editorial guidelines established?

There’s an entire team behind Habibibet that usually work behind the scenes. Our team consists of people from different countries and cultural backgrounds, however, we all hold the same values and principles that are recorded in several of our policies. These editorial guidelines are a team effort built from the following guidelines:

Content Creation and our Review Process

Our review process has been recorded in our rating guidelines. The content creation process is another story. We have several core elements that we go through for each article or review we end up publishing:

1. Identifying Casinos and Sportsbooks for Review

The first step is finding casinos and sportsbooks to write about. Our editorial team is contacted by hundreds of online casinos on a monthly basis, requesting we write reviews about them. To select the best casinos and sportsbooks to write about, we will initially only ask for key information. The operator subsequently has to be fact-checked, safety-checked and other checks mentioned on this page and in our rating guidelines.

2. Criteria for Review

Here we check the most important criteria that we need to build a well-informed argument. Things we check here are licensing, player security, transparency, variety of games, bonuses and more. Our reviews are always written with the same guidelines, and you’ll find that all our reviews follow the same structure. This should help you figure out easier which casino is best for you.

3. Maintaining Impartiality

Remaining impartial and offering unbiased information is the core of what we do. We make sure our reviews are honest and unbiased by looking at the good, the bad and the ugly. It is of the essence that we provide you with objective information, so you know that you can trust our opinions and reflections on the data we gather. By keeping things fair, we hope we can build a relationship based on trust with our readers and guide them to better choices in the gaming world.

4. Understanding the Role of User Experience in Our Evaluations

Your opinions matter! We love interacting with our readers and learn from your experiences. This not only makes the reviews better, it also helps us foster a great community on Habibibet. We encourage you to share your views on matters involving how easy a casino is to navigate, was your sign-up experience the same as ours, and so on. We’re currently in the process of developing a feature where you can leave your own comments under reviews and articles. With this feature we can start up a discussion!

5. Reliable and Current Information

It’s our job to stay on top of developments in the gaming world. We follow various news outlets such as sigma.world and Gambling insider very carefully. This helps us update information where necessary and stay on top of the latest trends. It can be any information related to gambling, such as new bonuses, newly introduced legislation, the release of new casino games and much more.

All of this is fact-checked again by one of our editors before publishing. Assuring you will receive the most reliable and updated information.

6. Updates and improvements

Even though we do our best to publish amazing content, we are humans and sometimes we make mistakes. To remedy any negative feedback, we constantly check if the information is still error free. Any reported errors will be handled as swiftly as possible, and with that said we want to encourage our readers to report any mistakes to us.

The Habibibet team will work hard to rectify any inaccuracies. We want you to know that we appreciate your feedback as it helps us understand our readers better and are able to deliver content that will satisfy all our visitors.

7. Commentary and Suggestions

As mentioned under updates and improvements we love receiving feedback from our readers. Your insights help us better understand what information is relevant to you. We can in turn use this to publish better content that you actually need. In short, your feedback helps us make our reviews complete by understanding what factors need to be included.

8. Disclosed References

Our knowledgeable staff does their best to provide you with the best possible reviews, gambling strategies and more. Besides using their own expertise and experience, they use only the most reputable sources to aid them. We will disclose all the used sources at the end of an article, where applicable. This way you could fact-check yourself!

9. Freshness and Originality

The team at Habibibet is aware that the gaming industry is a fast-paced one, where things might not be the same tomorrow as they are today. Because of this constant change, we need to remain vigilant on any updates. This means that our team is always on the lookout for new developments and will update pages on a regular basis. 

Once a review or article is published, we will continue updating it whenever necessary. The casino industry never sleeps!

Fact-Checking Protocols

Our fact-checking protocols ensure all the information we present to you is accurate and relevant. Our main editor - Ehsan Gamal - proofreads and edits every piece according to a set procedure that we will explain below.

Fact-Checking Procedure: Step by Step

  1. Find operators:
    As mentioned previously, the first step is to sift through all the applications we receive from online casinos. This is a team effort where everyone in our team helps out, we’re separating the wheat from the chaff in this step.

  2. Verify the operator:
    After gathering a list of all casinos that we would be interested in reviewing, we will request information from the operator and double check this with reputable sources we can find online.

  3. Data verification:
    Following is the data verification. This is where we crunch the numbers and double check the provided data is credible.

  4. Expert consults:
    Even though Numa is our main expert, we have some people that have specialized knowledge on e.g. slots, table games, crypto casinos etc. If it is necessary, we will consult with these experts to verify any information.

  5. Context analysis:
    Ehsan checks that nothing is taken out of context in the reviews. We don’t want to paint a more positive or negative picture because a piece of information is taken out of context.

  6. Editorial review:
    Finally, Ehsan will go through the review or article and assess it on its overall accuracy, quality and coherence before publication.

Checking for Legal and Regulatory Alignment

We will only recommend casinos that have a license from any of the reputable gambling authorities such as the UKGC and MGA. This ensures our visitors only play at regulated casinos where they can enjoy a safe and secure player environment. 

The Arabic gambling industry remains an interesting market as gambling is not viewed as virtuous in all countries. This is why our staff will check local legislation and respect national laws and perspectives.

Transparency in Affiliate Relationships

We want to be completely transparent with our readers, and this also means we should inform you about the fact that Habibibet has relationships with operators. We also call this affiliation, or affiliation marketing. 

We write reviews that in turn send traffic to the operator. Operators will give us special bonuses to make signing up to the casino more fun, and we will receive a certain percentage in commission. This does not mean we give up the editorial integrity that we have. We will always be honest in our reviews. Being able to offer you a fun bonus at a casino, is merely an extra reward for our readers.

Why are Editorial Principles Important?

Editorial principles are important because they hold us accountable and help us maintain a certani level of quality all across our website. Editorial principles keep us responsible for the information we provide in the following ways:

  1. We have to remain consistent, so our readers know what they can expect from us in terms of quality content.

  2. We communicate clearly. There shouldn’t be any confusion on what is being said in the reviews.

  3. We are honest. Fact checking and verifying everything we mention in reviews will help our readers trust us and view us as a reputable source.

  4. We are ethical. Even though the casino industry is often frowned upon, we do our best to remain ethical in terms of adhering to local legislation, copyright laws and avoiding plagiarism.
