    Hi Gang

    Just got this email in case anyone is interested:

    Dont know who 'Bonne Chance' is, but I hope they continue the great service, fun slots, and quick payouts :)

    I must say I enjoy playing on Rival software - its something different and I have managed to have more wins than on RTG and MG.

    Interesting development and we've fired off an email to Rival CEO Stephen Padveen to get clarification, because Bonne Chance NV is a subsidiary of Pantasia, which looks to me like a mere affiliate program.

    But....this is up on the site, too.

    "Pantasia is a casino owned and operated by Silverstone Overseas Limited, Ingles Manor, Castle Hill Avenue, Kent, Folkestone, United Kingdom (hereafter "Silverstone") a company wholly owned by Bonne Chance NV (hereafter "BC"). Bonne Chance NV is a company incorporated, licensed and regulated by the Government of Curacao for the purpose of operating an online casino."

    Yup - definitely an online casino using Rival software and offering an affiliate program.

    Well I would be happy for Pantasia to take over as they have also provided excellent service and fast payouts and very generous bonuses.

    Thanks for looking into it Jetset :)

    Also reference this to You must register/login in order to see the link. which looks like another online casino offering Rival games.

    Of course, 'Bonne Chance' is French for 'Good Luck'
    I hope that is a wish for our gaming experience, and not what we'll need in dealing with the new company! :p

    I understand this will affect almost nothing except increase the number of offered payment methods.

    Looks to be a good move, benefitting players by providing more options.

    Well, several days later and still no response from Stephen Padveen at Rival software, so perhaps they're unhappy about being as transparent as they promised they would be when they started out.....

    heck, they're already more transparent than RTG

    It appears that Padveen had only a short tenure in the CEO office at Rival - here's the latest from the company's m.d. Scott Giesbrecht:

    Hi Brian,

    Your inquiry has been forward to me as Stephen is no longer working for
    Rival.

    As you know The 400 Group had 4 casino operating, Paradise8, This Is
    Vegas, Davincis Gold Gold and Cocoa Casino. These have been acquired by
    Bonne Chance N.V, which was operating a single casino, Pantasia.com.

    This will only effect players for the good. They will have more options
    for depositing and withdrawing their funds, with the same great customer
    service.

    If you have any more questions you can send me an email directly.

    Kind Regards,

    Scott Giesbrecht
    Managing Director
    Black Chip Ltd

    Well Ive been playing at some of these casinos quite a bit this past week, and I can say that the cashouts are actually faster and Ive been sent some really good promo offers. I also really like the bonus terms which are usually around 10x - 13x and cashable - makes the other providers look a bit ordinary really.

    So far....so good!

    Thanks for the follow-up Jetset :thumbsup:

    i found the cashout button last Friday night (so I couldn't touch it Saturday night when I was schnockered)

    the withdrawal hit my ECO account just now (Tues afternoon). It might have been quicker but I had trouble with my sigmoidoscope. Hence it took a long time to prepare all their faxback requirements.

    Here ends my run at the Rival casino's it seems. I did very well in the past at all of them but Pantasia for some strange reason. Now that they are running the show I bet my badluck expands lol. Just had another bad session at Pantasia, that account is now closed. Good luck to them though, I do like the slots.

    Cocoa's host sent me a "$15 chip" loyalty bonus today. That was nice!

    I have it up to $230 so far. Do I stop now or drink some beers and get busy?
