Any thoughts on Mansion Casino for Blackjack?

    Just reading a glowing review of them at casino.com. They evidently have a nice casino and a 100% bonus up to $1000. I read some of the archived threads about bonus problems with them, so I might avoid that.

    But what is the impression of those who have played blackjack there? It appears they are proprietary software. Any good?

    Thanks!

    Note that the sign up has 200xBonus wagering requirements, if you play BJ.

    I believe that they are trustworthy and safe. Examples include quickly paying $millions to the people took their riskless sportsbook offer earlier this month. And crediting me an extra $100 bonus after I made a complaint on this website relating to "promoting" my sign up bonus.

    Downsides include changing their T&C and sign up bonus more often than any casino I have seen. Their independent software has proved to be buggy.

    My advise..

    I might be paranoid, but propietary software is not my style.

    Who knows who is behind that software....

    What I would do, is wait an analysis from Michael Shackleford to see what he believes...

    Other than that, only good things I´ve heard about them. However, they haven´t been much in business in order to make a conclusion.

    Man, I did just notice after posting that BJ only counts 10% towards the WR. Wow. Guess I really won't be taking any bonuses there! But I'll probably try their BJ with play money just to see how it trends.

    What software do you recommend, based on your experience? Do you have any favorite casinos among the accredited list?

    mmmm

    great question...

    From the credited list... it would be either Sun Palace from the Main Street Group... or the Riverbelle

    Sun Palace is from Playtech, Riverbelle MG...

    Honestly I rather Play at Playtech since its a software I am very familiar with.

    The only thing I don´t like about Riverbelle is their CS which is not bad, but is not outstanding and their site is a little bit disorganized.

    I mostly play poker, in which case I love Playtech or Pokerstars...

    XXLClub Casino is not on the accredited list... however i have tested their CS and its great. The site is amazing and the desing of the casino is one of the best I have seen. They run under the Playtech plataform.

    Intercasino is one operation I truly respect since you will find the least amount of complains compared to any other casino. (not only here at the meister´s site). You will see that Intercasino has probably the best reputatoin along the web.

    Pharaohs and Sunset Casino are pretty good. I usually play BJ when I get low on funds for slots and then build it up to go back and play the slots again.

    Have done that numerous times during a session without busting out. Keeps you in the money for quite a while and playing for hours (me anyway).. All the others I try this at are lousy. Especially Cryptos and MG BJ.

    i deposited to mansion at the start of the summer for their first 3 deposit bonuses. i only got the first (lowest) one done, and came out lower than expectation on casino war, back when that was the game to play for it (never played their bj as not allowed for the signup at that time for me). anyways, they switch the terms of the bonuses after i had only done the first [had no disposable roll at the time (not toilet paper), so needed to cashout from mansion to help make the 2nd depo]. so i contacted cs to see whether i had to complete under the new requirements for the next two. they said unfortuantely yes. i said well i need to wait on the cash anyway. next day, they tossed me a 20 dollar bonus with 1x wr. i ran it up to 34 and was able to cash out at least more than i deposited. that was cool of them.

    then they ran two free sportsbets. the first one i didn't get on it because i wasn't active at 2+2 and missed hearing about it. but i made the steelers bet (no hedge!) and made a free grand. all of which cashed out to neteller in ~2 hrs. i have 400 of bonus to rollover there, might go hit it up, you can use poker or casino or both to clear it. mansion is class.

    their keno game got exploited for its whoring properties (100% wr contribution plus low-ha sidebet) and their vp (which i am editing my post to mention as i don't play it either and forgot to mention it) anyway their vp was recycling cards and screwing the players, but 2 or 3% of all vp bets were refunded to all who played during the faulty times. those could be the "cs problem" OP was talking about, or possibly referring to their excessive network traffic and busy live chat csr's circa the week leading up to the steelers bet. just thousands of people double-checking they bet correctly. hands down, mansion is quality and they give exciting promotions and they're rich enough to pay out 5 million+ in a day.

    no i'm not a shill and i'm also not just saying all this because they gave out a risk-free sports bet. they are good. i oughtta pay them more traffic. and so should you! lol but yeah OP go hit it up, however beware the wr-contribution% of the various games. enjoy! gleich kommt oktoberfest, was trinken ja?

    Huh, it looks like the signon bonus at mansion is basically neutral or barely +EV if you play their single deck blackjack game, due to the monstruous WR. But it looks like other games might be +EV. Maybe video poker (I really need to figure out how to play VP)

    Something else I just discovered last night while first playing for fun (they cut my fun account off after just 30 hands of BJ!), then messaging CS with my questions.

    They have a scaled minimum and maximum betting limit for blackjack. You have to choose between one of three levels:

    MIN 1 / MAX 300
    MIN 10 / MAX 500
    MIN 20 / MAX 1000

    Why do this? Can't you just switch the scale from one hand to the next? Seems silly.

    Well, in a brick and mortar casino, limiting the bet spread (a LOT) will tend to thwart card counters.

    Online, it has two benefits for the casino that I can think of:

    1) If a player is martingaling, and goes on a bad streak, this will prevent them from betting a nearly-infinite bet, and ensuring the casino gets the bust-out.

    2) It limits the damage that can be done by someone sweeping in with a one-shot risky bonus-hustlin bet when the bonus is sticky.

    You are quoting a TEN-YEAR-OLD thread! :eek:

    CM does not read all posts made - that would be a full time job! If you want to ask him something - send him a PM (Personal Message).

    I must admit - I thought they were in the Rogue Pit where they belong - but it seems I am wrong.
    I don't know where they are now - but I do know they are definitely an operator to avoid.

    Welcome to the forum! :thumbsup:

    I play at Mansion all the time (when bonuses are offered) and always receive payments in a timely manner without any fuss.

    Just make sure you follow their bonus T&Cs. They seem to be a good casino in my experience.

    Because if a player got lucky and won a progressive jackpot, Mansion would only pay out the winnings at $10,000/month maximum.
    e.g. If you won the jackpot on Spamalot today ($1,355,873) it would take more than 11 YEARS to get your money. :mad:
    And Jackpot Giant ($3,910,406) would take more than 30 years!

    This is totally unethical because the money does not belong to Mansion - it is held in a "pot" by Playtech and is paid to the casino in one lump sum.
    (They also have an affiliate program with a history of ripping-off their marketing partners).
