eGaming Review is a popular magazine devoted to online gambling industry. In August 2004 thay made top 50 gambling operators. Here is what they say about their job: "This is not just about who is the biggest, but who exercises the most influence on the industry, who others listen too, who others follow and who will shape the future. In order to do this, we based our results on four criteria: Scale, Reach, Diversity and Influence. Scale is a combination of turnover and financial backing. It's not just about who is making the most profit, but who has the most potential to expand. Our next criterion is diversity. If you are only a casino operator you will never make a difference to poker or sportsbook operators. This is why only those players prepared to take a risk and try and build their brand in new areas find themselves at the top of the power tree. Influence. This is where we plead subjectivity. We have consulted far and wide on this, but at the end of the day this is just our opinion. If you are a US$1bn player but only operate will be less than a player half your size with a strong base in several continents. This is where Reach comes into play."
As you can see, not only casinos, but gambling groups, poker-rooms and bookmakers are included in the top. If a group owns casino(s) I put the most popular of their casinos in the list and you can read more about the group in "Review" cell. You can consider this list as the list of the most serious and well-funded casinos.
