To those i haven't spoken to in a while here well howdy then,lol, and to any people that don't know me hi, nice to meet ya ! Now say i was wanting to make a small deposit at a Rival brand casino, and say that casino was Vegas Sky, what would you pro's tell me goods or bad ? :thumbsup:

    Personally I would say they are one of the better Rival casinos around. There are a few better ones - but Vegas Sky are OK IMHO.
    I've been working and playing with them since they first opened back in November 2008 - and any problems I had with them were quickly resolved -except I'm bonus banned there for winning too much! :(
    I also have a contact there who is very responsive, should any issues arise.

    Nice to see you again peety.

    Long time ago, when they first opened, won on a generous welcome bonus they offered. It was the very first time I'd won anything on a free sign-up bonus.

    It was memorable for more reasons that that however. Needed help for docs due to lack of a printer/scanner, and then got the unusual request for a photo of me holding my ID. Payment was prompt after they received everything.

    Only a very very bad bonus offer after cashout though. Read most threads here, haven't seen complaints other than about bonus bans.

    I don't have anything against Vegas Sky, but I personally wouldn't deposit money there... I'm probably overly cautious, but I can't help imagining Vegas Sky may eventually get shut down by Sky Vegas.

    Sky Vegas is operated by BSkyB, a UK company with 10,000,000+ customers and over 6 billion in annual revenue. I'm fairly sure Vegas Sky is considerably smaller...

    The SkyVegas.com domain was first registered in 2005 while the Vegas Sky domain was registered in 2008, so it seems Vegas Sky can't claim they were around first.

    Keeping in mind that 32Red managed to get 32Vegas (owned by William Hill) shut down in January due to trademark issues, I don't think it would be difficult for Sky Vegas to shut down Vegas Sky.

    And so I wouldn't deposit at a casino that may find itself shut down or embroiled in legal issues. But I am definitely overly cautious about these things (really don't like my money disappearing) ;)

    I think if SkyBSB were going to take any action they would have done it a long time ago!

    I don't know if they still are, but when Vegas Sky launched they were owned by a large Lottery company operating in South Africa - not some tin-pot operation!
    Of course, it's difficult to be 100% sure about anything these days - especially when it comes to Rival casinos with the software provider moving more toward a "hands-off" approach like RTG & Playtech, for example... :(

    I agree it would be unusual to take action after remaining silent for so long, but maybe they've just been 'flying under the radar' for now (and Sky's trademark enforcement team have been sleeping).

    I know one thing for sure: if I owned Sky Vegas, and I learned there was a Vegas Sky which opened after my operation started, I wouldn't hesitate to go after them. Wouldn't be difficult to prove the case of "confusingly similar" or "likelihood of confusion" since they're both in the exact same industry. In fact I believe it's actually necessary to attempt to close them down, otherwise you create a situation of 'trademark dilution' which makes any other future situations more difficult to deal with.

    Of course I'm not a trademark lawyer so my opinion isn't worth much :) But I've had a domain legally taken from me by the Station Casino group in Vegas, and another domain taken from me by the Olympics Committee, so I have a bit of experience being on the receiving end of companies being very protective of domains even remotely similar to their trademarks!
