LVHM please tell me the credit card because the lowest fee I've ever seen for foreign currency purchases is 2% (egg card)

Refunds always are around 6% less than what I pay (with my 2.75% fee). If I could get back the difference on all the purchases that were refunded I'd get quite a lot to say the least.

Actually just found Capital One VISA charge 1.75% but not anything lower (been searching in www.deja.com). Even withhout any charge I wonder what difference there would be just due to the converting rate from one currency to the other and then back again.

You snooze, you looze! Golden Palace promotion, buy $50 get $50 ...Now I know I could've gotten real busy on that had I not missed it. I had my head buried in this forum and forgot to check those emails...jeez! Can't use it for "roulette" or "craps"?? They assume you won't win on video poker? They must have forgotten I already WAS a BIG WINNER there on the poker games!
Hey Hitmob...Am I understanding that you no longer fancy playing at AiB? Uh, is Heather allowed back to collect her go-go boots?

Warning about the Perplexa casinos.

Make sure you read the rules for earning the bonus. They generally offer 15% on an initial deposit. The rule on the website when I played said play the deposit + bonus. After winning and collecting, vegaspalacecasino.com changed the rule to you must win 150% of the bonus. So I played some more and did just that. I'm still waiting for the check. I asked them to update their website and they did in the rules and regulations.

Another one Abetzcasino.com held my check citing wire transfer difficulties for 3 weeks, changed the bonus policy to you must play 5 times!!! your deposit + bonus. As of this posting they haven't updated the website yet.

Another one Snap casino potentially may do the same. I spoke with David at Abetzcasino.com, and he stated this is a Perplexa thing, not a casino thing. Snapcasino.com has also held my check for 3 weeks citing wire transfer difficulty. I expect them to also come back with "the rules have changed".

Alohacasino.com, and Shangrilacasino.com have promptly sent checks without delay. Those casinos were played after Abetz and Snap.

Balicasino.com sent a check without a delay, but they were played before Abetz and Snap.

Monalisacasino.com denied my deposit calling me a "bonus hunter". I told them to go ahead and deposit without the bonus, as I need to evaluate them. Yes I do play alot of casinos with bonuses, because they generally offer a bonus on your initial deposit. It is my job to go through a list of 72 casinos in evaluating them. First Live is also on my list, but as part of my job I need to make a deposit with them, and withdraw even though I know they don't payout to insure and independant evaluation.

So watch out for the Perplexa casinos on your initial deposit. They will change the rules on you, even those that were effective on your initial deposit and cashout. Otherwise Perplexa casinos are fast and reliable on their payout. I was in the process of giving the Perlexa casinos a quite favorable rating, until this started up.

It has been my job to evaluate a list of online casinos. I have 72 on my list which include alot of Perplexa casinos.

Rule of thumb...if it sounds too "perplexing" to be true, it probably is Perplexa! Watch out!!

There I was dubiously counting my MANY MANY 3's of a kind, (as this is an honest site) practicing in hopes to be the big winner...when alas, I ran out of my "free" 10 coins and had to slam some more in the machine...over and over again. Okay,
LVHM...nice site, but cough up a few extra bucks and buy a couple machines that can tally and hold OVER 10 credits....after all, it's an "honest" site and with a lot of luck a player may actually accumulate more than 10 credits. Hey, and get a Joker Poker video poker game on there...just for ME! Has to pay on Kings or better! Cool car on the home page! I will be back to carry on at carryoncasino!

You should be able to consistently win with their single deck blackjack. Their rules mean that with proper basic strategy (they shuffle after each hand) you'll have an advantage. I haven't played them yet though.

Do Golden Palace always cancel deposits (instead of refunding them) when you win? I deposited $2500 at the weekend (20% bonus) and would have lost about $140 in exchange rate fees when it was refunded but I emailed them at cashin@goldenpalace.com about the possibility of them cancelling the deposits (they have cancelled some in the past when I've deposited twice and cashed out twice within a few days) and didn't get a reply. Today though they emailed saying they sent the wire tranfer yesterday, and my purchases were shown to be cancelled and won't show up on my credit card statement. This saved me about $140 and I think more casinos should do this.

I was talking about perplexa blackjack that you should have an advantage with. Yes LVHM, I should get a US$ account.

Sirius,
That is what I was saying that Golden Palace does, "cancels the purchases" and while that works well in your situation...it is terribly difficult to make sure you weren't double-billed and double-cancelled for the transactions...as it DOES NOT show up on the credit card statement. More casinos should do this...as long as YOU are sure to keep track of your own purchases.

Yeah right HITMOB...give up PAYDAY now. Gee, it woulda only cost you a couple dozen donuts to let me (your most loyal fan over a 2 week stretch) and Steve (your co-hort) know about this a little ahead of time.

Vegaspalacecasino bonus question -- That rule sounds pretty weird. If I buy in for $1000, get $150 bonus, then make $1500 in bets ending with a balance of $1100, can I cash in for $1000? only $950? Hmmm...

Ok, I tried AIB. After you learn how to buy chips and sign up it sucks. sorry all you aib fans and employees!

On a scale of 1-10, it does not even get a 3.

James, what the hell?? I had to pull out my calculator to follow that...that was as bad as trying to count 3's of a kind while having to drag and drop 10 quarters in every other hand at LVHM's site...jeez, there are females here...keep the numbers simple, pleeese!! Kinda like Steve's little numbers...you know a 3 or lower for AiB.
Thanks for the tip, Steve. Unlike some forum members keeping the tips to themselves.

Steve,
Since you were so terribly rude to me, your wife cannot keep my go-go boots. Please send them back promptly.

Sirius,

yes, if you cashin at Golden Palace soon enough, they just cancel the credit card transaction. This saves them money. It helps a lot to have credit cards that are devoted exclusively to gambling, even better to get one that gives cash back on purchases (Like the Discover card) I keep a ledger book of all my transactions, it's the only way to keep track of what's going on.

By the way, I'm a female too, and Kyla, not all females are math-nervous. Let's save the "keep it simple" shtick for the pit bosses, ok? Thanks

Steve, as you sound like a rational sane person, I will check your site out as soon as I get a chance to download it...tried it online, but couldn't get it to load the games.
