Our Opinion

EmpireOption still lags behind some of the brokers that utilize the same white-label platform that it uses. Apart from the live chat and online form, there is no other way to contact the broker. In addition, the broker is not very explicit about its payment methods and the conditions attached to it, and there is a lot of ambiguity in describing the true regulatory status of this company.

Some of these issues will make it hard for traders to commit their money to EmpireOption. Traders who want to use the SpotOption platform will definitely prefer to use other brokers such as IQ Option which are definitely better packaged and are very explicit as to what trader will encounter when using their platforms. EmpireOption has a lot of work to do if they are to compete favourably in the binary options marketplace with some of their competitors.
