Here is Bao Casino - a relatively new casino in the GZ. They are EU facing - no UK or US.

They seem to have quick payouts, but have monthly withdrawal limits.

You can read their review here: Bao Casino

Poked my head in their and played a smidge not long ago, don't recall anything particularly noteworthy that put me off revisiting. Site is easy to navigate, not a HUGE collection of providers, but most of the fan favourites. Promotions seemed a tad scarce, but I didn't journey too far down their road of rewards, so it may be more impressive than it appears at first glance. Also didn't see much in the way of a loyalty/vip program or recurring weekly promos, races and such.

Hi, sapit222 !

Please bear in mind that there are no bonuses available for Swedish players in our online casino. However you can still play using EUR currency. Thank you for understanding ;-)

How generous of you to accept Swedish players. It's so nice that you can let all of those players that have self excluded from all casinos that have a license here still play.
They will of course not be able to get anything extra but they will be free to lose all of their money I suppose, and you won't even have to pay tax.

Now how great isn't that? Well done!

I advice all affiliates to not have them on any list that accept Swedish players please.

Is it illegal for them to accept Swedish plays, in the same way as it is with UK players and non-UKGC licensed sites?
If it is, then maybe the grey zone is too good for them.

Why spend time writing reviews for dodgy Curacao licensed sites. When there are plenty of decent casinos with UKGC/MGA licenses needing reviews

No it's not illegal. Only thing that will happen if I report their casino is that they will get a warning sign up for Swedish players to see that they are not licensed.
Not much more they can do, and I guess the same is for UK.

From the start I thought wow, I want a normal place to play, but that was very selfish.
Now there is already 20 000 Swedish players who have signed up to a similar place as your Gamstop. For their sake I don't want these sites to offer us to play.

Then it's not fair to those casinos that have paid a lot to get the license and are paying taxes too.
I advice the casino to stop accepting Swedish players!!

Oh yeah - I know, but we are doing this to expand our data base - especially for the C2O that loads of folks have forgotten about. :D

Don't forget, as a Meister Minion - your comments can become part of that review.

The way it is going very soon the site might well get renamed to “curacaomeister” ...
WTF is that supposed to mean? How many casinos that are listed in the Accredited section are licensed in Curacao?

Well since I don't have many options in casino choices, I will give this one a go.

I rarely take bonuses so that part don't bother me :)

When I signed up to Bao Casino a few weeks ago the maximum withdrawal from the welcome bonus was SIGNIFICANTLY less than $3000CAD - I'm trying to remember but I'm almost certain it was only 300-400CAD I made a smaller deposit with welcome bonus because there was no point in depositing a larger amount if my turnover rate was only going to be 3x max.

Although I'm glad that they have increased this amount substantially, I wish it would have been done in the onset of the casino launch.

I have joined Bao Casino the other day. :)

Deposited via bitcoin and that was a mistake as the currency shows bitcoin amount as they don't have a converter so I was confused as to how to play this in bitcoin :confused:

Next time I will use Neosurf etc plenty of Payment method to choose from so that is a plus :thumbsup:

Very limited providers for my country only Bgaming, Betsoft Gaming, Evolution and Platipus :( Quickspin would be nice if it could be added.

I did not take a bonus so I was playing with $55 but in Bitcoin currency, kept checking balance and I was up $108 so I decided to do a withdraw.

I submitted documents and only a few minutes later received an email that they do not accept screenshots of photo Id so I took a photo of it and it got verified within minutes :)

I made my withdrawal and an hour later it was in my bitcoin account. :)

So I like the fact that documents get verified quickly :thumbsup:

Cash out is quick as well compared to other casinos especially being my first withdrawal :thumbsup:

Lots of different currencies and payment/ withdraw method :thumbsup:

No problems of lagging and loading of games :thumbsup:

Changes to make, have bitcoin converter and more providers for some unlucky countries ;)

I will play there again for sure as there are more positives than negatives :cheers:

Almost forgot they also have quests and you earn points, I am on level 3. Will have to find out more about this one :)

Would you please look into when depositing with Bitcoin if it can be converted to AUD etc currency as not many people know how to play with Bitcoin and it is a preferred payment method :)

Other Casinos have it and if Bao Casino can have it in the near future it will be even a better casino :thumbsup: ;)

Unfortunately, there is no possibility of converting BTC to AUD once you've made a deposit. However, thank you for the recommendation, we'll consider it in our constant development process ;)

Dear sapit222,

We are happy to announce that on numerous requests of our beloved players we have reconsidered our bonus policy, and there is no longer a maximum win limitation on the deposit bonuses!

I would never join a casino that limiits cashouts on a deposit bonus, unless it was a very large xbonus amount, or extremely low wagering.

Hi, Jasminebed,

We are delighted to inform you that we have updated our bonus policy and there is no longer a cashout limit on deposit bonuses! So feel free to check out our online casino, we'll be happy to have you as a player ;)

I find it a bit rude to quote a Swede who is not eligible for the bonus for your happy announcement that everyone else can cash out the max. He won't be able to even try :rolleyes:

Tirilej, by no means, are we trying to be rude here. We are just responding to the users' comment on the drawback of our bonus policy and informing about the update. Anyway, we are sorry if anyone felt offended by the comment you mentioned :(
