The online gambling industry is huge. Yet there are not many quality casino WordPress themes on the market that meet high quality guidelines. Affiliates are building more-and-more sophisticated websites with advanced features that rely on theme or plugin functionality. We have picked a couple of themes that are not only compatible with the VegasHero plugin but will meet the criteria of most gambling affiliate website builder.
In our casino theme selection you will see the theme demos not necessarily show a gambling theme – this is where many affiliates restrict there choice of wordpress themes. Just because a theme doesn’t have a casino content demo setup it doesn’t mean that the features are not perfectly suitable to host a casino affiliate site.
If you thinking: “why an earth would I choose a non-gambling theme?” – consider this:
By picking a WP theme that is not marketed with casino content also means you will have less affiliates using that same theme for a casino affiliate site which will makes yours look more unique.
Our minimum requirements for a casino / gambling / betting wordpress themes are the following:
- review and rating capabilities (often meaning compatibility with the popular WP Review plugin)
- advanced SEO features including rich snippets
- custom post type support (for games post and casino reviews)
- responsive layouts including grids and page customisers (for example Visual Composer)
- multilingual support
- only themes from well-established authors with quality support
We can recommend a couple of premium themes we personally used and work great with the VegasHero plugin:
Great framework to build a community focused casino / games review site. The amount of customization options and third party integrations are mind boggling. This would be our best pick for an all purpose theme.
A carefully crafted magazine template to create a great niche affiliate site. Very versatile theme with outstanding SEO and layout options. Good review features too.
Minimalist design, great SEO and excellent implementation of review pages. Fast loading pages and excellent structure for SEO.
Responsive Multi-Purpose WP theme with drag-and-drop layout builder. Some of our customers used this theme and made great looking websites with this theme.
Best Theme (from MyThemeShop)
A clean magazine theme with good ad management and super fast page load speeds which is great UX. It’s from MyThemeShop, a WP resource that we highly recommend. Among other very widely used themes and plugins they are the developers behind the invaluable WP Review plugin too which we utilise on nearly all our sites.
Hope you find a suitable theme from this list.
As a side note our team at VegasHero is in the process of developing a premium casino WordPress theme that will be geared towards games and casino review functionality coupled with killer SEO structure, modern looking layouts, multi-device responsiveness and geo-targeting.
