If your poker experience has strictly been at the casino or with group of friends on poker night, you may be a bit unsure about the legitimacy of online poker providers. One of our main purposes at YouRate is to give members a safe, fair, and enjoyable online gambling experience, so we work hard to guarantee security. In order for a provider to be legitimate, they must have an appropriate licence to operate in the UK. This means a licence from the UK Gambling Commission, and, in most cases, a licence from the Gibraltar Gambling Commission. You can find the relevant licensing information on the footer of all legal gambling sites. If you cannot find any indication on the website of a relevant licence, the site is likely illegitimate. Rest assured, all of the providers reviewed on YouRate are fully licensed and registered.
