The goal of Time2play AU: earning your trust

Written by
Reviewed by Elena I.

The world of gambling can be a wonderful, entertaining one — emphasis on can. Often, gamblers put their faith in sources that are serving the casinos or bookies, not the players.

Time2play is taking a stand against that. We’re not here for your short-term money. We’re here to earn and deserve your trust.

The Time2play dream

Most online gamblers use Google, Twitch, or Reddit to figure out where to play.  

What do the search results from these platforms pull up?

Just look at almost any other recommendation portal out there. How many of them feature only casinos or bookies which are truly the best and most trusted in the online industry? Why do you think that is?

The Time2play dream is to be the source of truth for the gambling community.  

Our pledge to you is that we will never allow gambling sites any say in how we rate them. We will never adjust negative user reviews. We will never accept deals that make us profit from your losses.

The rating system is our guarantee to you

Our Time2play rating system is how we walk the walk. Composed of three different important review methods, it ensures your 360-degree view on the topic at hand.

Our proprietary Playscore — all sources, one rating

We know that a lot of gamblers like to have multiple sources of information. Instead of needing to visit many different sites, our Playscore provides a complete market overview at one glance. The aggregated score summarises what other recommendation sites have rated — and all sources are linked and listed as well.

A published rating scale and real people rating

Usually, it’s not possible to check how a review site actually rates. Mostly because the ‘system’ behind it is whatever the casino/bookie pays for. Meaning, there’s no actual objective system — it’s a fixed rating from the get-go. The Time2play experts, however, review based on a published rating scale. All users can double check that the reviews are truly objective. And an extra plus? Our experts are real people, not afraid of putting their name on our project —  unlike what you often see out there with fake profiles covering for multiple ghost writers.

An actual gambling community with players helping other players

Most importantly, at Time2play our users get a chance to rate all products. We pride ourselves in featuring the user ratings as they are — never adjusting them to make a gambling site look better. Our users get a chance to really help other users, and even casual players can provide support with their recommendations, warnings, successes, failures, and more. 

The Time2play Playscore

Our Playscore is one of the three pillars of the Time2play rating system, built on a foundation of unbiased transparency. 

We want you to have a comprehensive overview of the market in one place — that’s why Time2play experts consider ratings published by other review sites. In short, the Playscore is the average score (out of 100), collected from up to eight other sources.

The Playscore is integral to our system and offers three key benefits to our users:

  • Check Round Green

    A complete and convenient overview

    You can use the Playscore as a reference point when choosing the best sportsbooks in Australia, with all the data you need — all in one place.

    You’ll find all ratings at the very top of each sportsbook review. If you need additional information or want to know what other industry experts have to say, you’ll know exactly where to find them.

  • Check Round Green

    Consistent and straightforward ratings

    Not all review sites use a 100-point rating system, so we factor in an appropriate equivalent for comprehensive, at-a-glance coverage.

    A rating of 4.5 stars, for example, is converted to 90 on our scale. The final Playscore is an average of up to eight ratings, expressed as a percentage. 

  • Check Round Green

    Odds-on transparency

    The Time2play crew diligently examines every nook and cranny of Australia’s gambling sites, but we don’t want you to take our word for every claim.

    The Playscore is meant to empower you to make the right choice for you, offering a reference point for comparing and contrasting experts’ objective data and insights. 

Helping you avoid the scammers

We don’t just hope to guide you TO the best online gambling sites. We also hope to guide you AWAY from platforms that aren’t looking out for your best interests.

We advise you to avoid any gambling site with less than 40% Playscore or expert rating. There are data-backed reasons for such a low score!

We definitely don’t link to such sites — regardless of what this costs us in lost revenue.

It’s all about people

We’re all about reaching the vision so that you have an honest community you can go to. And we’re all about doing it in a way where we, as a team, can be proud of both the product and our people. 

Some of us are gambling experts. Some of us don’t know anything about gambling. All of us, however, are united in our passion for having a positive impact on the gambling community.
