Good evening peeps.

I just wanted to know peoples thoughts on Casino Calzone. From what I can tell, it's a pretty good looking casino run by a respectable bunch. Just signed up a few days ago, deposited £200, and was VERY fortunate to win in excess of £2000! Withdrawals were processed on Friday late, so hopefully I'll receive my winnings soon.

Anyhoo, I just wanted to get others input.

Cheers big ears! :cheers:

Yes, good lot, have met them at trade shows and cannot really find any negatives from feedback I have seen.

Just received my winnings. 1 day. Not bad considering I'm with a crappy bank. Yep, all feedback looks good (apart from on that so-called review site, Trustpilot) I just like to get further confirmation from the ONLY casino review/forum site I trust :rolleyes:

Documents approved. Jobs a good 'un :thumbsup:

I didn’t mind them withdrawls within half an hour and in bank within the hour, then they decided to put a thing on account which wouldn’t allow me to be logged in for longer than 90 mins a day then they said they would remove that but put a loss limit on account of £300 found the whole ordeal a let down and have rarely deposited there since. Was showing no signs of problem gambling and it pissed me off that they took it upon themselves to insinuate that I had a problem

Funny you mention this as they have just done the exact same thing to me. Why do they get to dictate what people spend. Like you, I'm not a problem gambler. I do however like to deposit in £20 increments. I can do this up 20 times some days. So perhaps that looks bad to them and so feel like they are protecting me in some way. I don't need protecting. If ever I thought things were getting out of hand, I set deposit limits myself. But because they took it upon themselves to this without consulting me, I now cannot play until next month.

I also find the near constant reminders telling me how long I've been playing, intrusive & irritating. There's promoting responsible gambling, then there's spamming people with near constant pop-ups. So yea, as you say Luckyscouser.........withdrawals are fast, but setting limit loss's on account without consulting the player is B.S. I doubt I'll be back.

Had my biggest win ever on calzone, was transferred quickly and without issues.

I haven't played there a lot recently simply because their Merkur games stopped loading for me, but the casino absolutely get a thumbs up from me.

Just some 'balancing' to keep things fair: this is one of the very few Casinos out there i tried, that seemed excellent at first but quickly turned out to be one of the worst user-experiences i had, and literally made me feel like the whole support/verification staff was a bunch of clowns trolling me or severely incompetent..both options unacceptable. Needless to say i self exluded there asap.

Was very surprised as they had ties to the GUTS group (iirc), which i hold up to having a high standard.
Just to clear up, i made a small profit there, on my first deposit, then gave back a little, trying out the loyalty scheme, and that's where things started to go sour. I wanted to verify my account (and that is after i was paid the first WD) and in that process i encountered the most infuriating back and forth i had in years :what:

Mind you, i've been around and before i found CM and knew what i was doing i even tried all the rogue outfits, so i am 'used' to bad experiences..but this really baffled me.

Perhaps they are good now, but at that point in time (a month or 3 after they just launched) it was extremely lacking in the abovementioned departments (support/verification)

Just glad i found out before i played back my winnings..

Also the calzone wheel is a joke 5 spins every single time piss take when building it up to then get 5 shitty spins on spin town which coincidentally are always 9/10 5 dead spins on the bounce!!!

My experience was similar. I was fortunate to win way beyond my deposits totalling £200. I made 2 withdrawals of £300 without an issue.....no documents needed. But on my third withdrawal of £1500, they wouldn't authorise it until I sent in my docs. Fine, I thought. So I sent everything they asked for. It was a full 24 hours until they got back to me. This time asking for yet more documents. Again, I sent these in. It was at that point I started to worry that they would keep demanding more & more documents so I feared I would never see my £1500. But after I sent the final piece of documentation, the withdrawal was authorised and in my bank.

I have experienced my fair share of rogue outfits and worried Calzone were one. I even went into live chat to say I hoped they weren't. I eventually got all my withdrawals, so no worries. What bothers me now is I have to send in yet more docs in order to increase my loss limit! Arghhh! :confused:

I thought it was cool pinnit till they slapped me on a 90 min session without even speaking to me then all the messing round removing it to then add a loss limit. Jokers. Left a sour taste. Shame as well Cos I’ve had £1k payouts within half an hour from them. I just stick to PP now

I experienced this at the weekend while playing through a bonus and had to wait until the next day to carry on and the momentum was gone and i bust out quickly.I have changed the minutes now to 240 in a 24 hour period but its still a load of crap to tell people how long they can play.Its one of my regular casinos though.

Well I was pleasantly surprised to log-in tonight & find £5 sitting in my account. Better than nothing. Maybe I will play here again.....from time to time.

I had bonus amount of £20 to play with.

Dont know how as i have not had £200 losses this week so pleasantly surprised. If this is the new format for Cals Home Delivery then i prefer it.

Also went through the whole restriction questioning and time limit but after a bit of back and forth all was removed,

I cant knock them as every single slot is max RTP also, which for me, trumps most things as long as i can get my withdrawals which have never been an issue for me.
