    Has anyone had experience with bgo casino.Looks like they are relatively new,established in 2012 and they are offering a 200% first deposit bonus with 4x wagering although slots only contribute 25% but even so,16x wagering seems pretty reasonable.They are registered in the Isle of Man which is one of the best licensing jurisdictions but i cannot find any reviews of them.Thanks guys.

    Well, it's not 4x then, it's 16x.

    Rather creative method to be able to have a headline of 4x WR, when in fact this is misleading as it is really 16x. even this is good compared to the 30x generally seen at Microgaming, and often more elsewhere.

    The true figure for WR should be calculated on the basis that slots are 100% weighted, and other games have lesser weights. In most cases slots form the majority of games on offer, so you have the majority of games on the full 100% weighting. It looks like this casino has the majority of it's games weighted well below this 100%.

    This marketing ploy could backfire as it suggests an air of dishonesty, and other claims it makes to be so much better than the competition will be treated with suspicion.

    VIP Players at the old Jackpot Factory group had a 15x WR with slots weighted 100%, this is marginally BETTER than this 4x headline offer that becomes 16x when you actually play. Ladbrokes also had very low WR before it moved to clearplay, and I think they too had 4x WR on the bonuses won from their scratchcard promo, and they MEANT 4x, not 16x.

    If there was really no catch, a 4x WR on a 200% bonus is a no-brainer for players, but a disaster for the bean counters at the casino.

    If you had visited the site, then you would have seen that this originally is a bingo site.

    Bingo counts 100%, while slots count 25%.

    Nothing creative about this in my opinion.

    Interesting mix of MGS, IGT and Sheriff games - anyone know where the live dealer action is coming from?

    Microgaming provide the Live Casino :) We've also launched Net Ent now - woohoo! Around 80 games are live at the moment from Net Ent, we're hoping to have the remaining 60 or so from their portfolio live in the next few weeks.

    Addition - nothing sinister about the wording surrounding wagering requirements is intended, it just made more sense to leave the Bingo at 100% contribution and mark down the Instant games rather than have Instants at 100% and Bingo at 400%.

    Cheers

    It's not 4 x bonus but 4 x deposit + bonus, so in total we get bonus x 24 wagering if I'm right.

    I checked their website and they also offered 25% reloads - with 4 x deposit + bonus and slots counting as 25% - that means a whooping 80 x bonus rollover.

    Nothing sinister but just thought I'll mention that. In general they appear solid and wouldn't mind seeing them in the approved section.

    Yahoo! Now they are online. Crambled trough the T&C.. Found this term unclear for myself, could someone clear it for me ?

    "
    Any progressive jackpots in the Game may be removed at any time, at the discretion of the management. bgo.com will not be at liberty to dispense any funds accrued from these progressive jackpots to players."


    Is that some kind of weird bingo thing :what:. Sounds really odd.

    Allso, there is no game restrictions while playing with bonus, allthough Roulette, Craps, Keno games and progressive jackpot games contribute 0% for wager. Should this be red as those games are restricted?

    Actually really funny that Keno games contributes 0% and blackjack contributes 5% (Meaning their 200% wellcome bonus is open for bonus abuse from experienced blackjack player?).

    Hey All,

    Few questions to answer.

    Games that don't contribute to the wagering requirement are still allowed to be played...they just won't contribute to the wagering requirement :)

    Our hosting company were doing some planned work early this morning so apologies for the downtime.

    The progressive jackpot term relates to the games that we offer. Basically if we decided to remove one of the progressive slots which someone had been playing for months and months, contributing lots of money to, they may ask for their money back. We need this term to cover us for such a scenario. The same applies to Bingo progressives. We fund those games from the rake taken and not wagers, so it's just our way of not paying out twice if you like.

    As for the bonus query from Przecinek - you're correct in that the standard bonus terms apply across the board. Regardless of % offered it's always 4x deposit + bonus (which equates to 16x for Slots play).

    Cheers
    Paul

    Hey wobble,

    If you log in and then click on the 'Account' button, then 'Wallet' you'll see how much you have remaining on any bonuses pending.

    Played the wellcome bonus. Cave a nice playtime with 1€ bet. Then I finally changed to wolfrun with a 4€ bet and 120€ balance (Really wise I know :p).

    All the games worked just well for me. BUT when I was playing Boom Brothers my balance was 48~, but suddenly it jumped to 57~. This happened few times.
    But other then that bug, everything worked fine.

    Ye i came across there and had a look for some reviews. I didn't find any reviews but i did find something interesting at casino choice

    I always check my competitions site to see whats going on at casino choice is one i checked. They have BGO listed and RATED at i think 9.8 , But they have only being listed on there a few days. So either they paid there way to the top of that list or casino choice is lying as its the players that rate them there i think.

    But either way. it looks nice

    After reading this thread I went to check it out and signed up.

    First I started Gonzos Quest (NetEnt) in free mode to see if the performance is well, which it was and then I noticed that there's some handy information displayed on the left side of the screen, including the RTP. Which seemed to be case for all games.

    So I booted it up in Real mode, whereas the information was not there anymore and instead the game opened up in a what seems a javascrip window within the page. Which was a bummer.

    So at the rep, is it possible to display the RTP and the other information when playing for real mode aswell?

    Afternoon!

    It sure is - basically when you're logged in and you click on the game tiles it'll fire up the game. Use the text links at the bottom of the page to view the game pages that we've set up.

    Some of the games don't have the RTP values but I've tried to get as many as possible in there. These aren't dynamic yet and so a real pain to add for hundreds of games, but I'm working on it!!

    Cheers

    had a punt with the welcome bonus and had a good few hours play, doubled my total money at one point but lost it all trying to complete wagering, cant complain as it could have gone the other way :D was playing most of the newly added net ent slots, a got a bit carried away on frankenstein :(

    overall though i liked the site and everything seemed well laid out and functional.

    Nice range of games. Be good when the rest of the NetEnt selection and the marquee MG games are added. £20 deposit with £40 bonus (x16 W/R on the slots), £173 cash out a couple of days later :)

    72 hour reverse period is a little long for me though.

    I haven't asked about manual flushing but I would hope it's available if required.

    Overall 8/10 for me. -1 for the reverse time, -1 for the lack of the big MG games.

    Site is well laid out and I like how easy it is to view your bonus progress.

    Good to be able to play all the games in a resizeable window too :)

    only thing i did notice on the net-ent games was that i couldnt seem to quick spin/halt the spin by pressing the button again, certainly on games like jack and the beanstalk i prefer to spin them a little faster than default as it can be tedious
