    Hi guys, quick question:

    Don't normally get spam from Ukash, but I got an email today promoting a 200% exclusive signup bonus at a place called casino.com

    Casino.com Yea or Nay?: ukash offer.JPG,Mar 24, 2015





    They appear to have a handful of Playtech games, such as Incredible Hulk.

    I tried to find them on the accredited list, not there. I tried the no go lists, but 40 matches when I do a search for casino.com (as many casinos end with this exact letters) and I cannot find any mention good or bad of them.

    Can anyone chime in before I get taken for a ride? Would be nice to see the ol HULK SMASH once again, but not at the cost of playing at a rogue casino. Almost was in my glory when slotsmillion came out, but sadly Playtech will not work for some users in Canada there.

    Casino.com is a sister casino to Mansion Casino (and Club 777, Les A Casino, & Slots Heaven).
    You can find Mansion here: http://www.casinomeister.com/no-can-do-list.php

    I used to promote their brands on my websites, but I had pretty good evidence that they were ripping me off - so I dumped them in 2012.

    Can't really comment any further than that. They may or may not be OK from a player's perspective.

    3 reasons to avoid:

    1. Playtech.
    2. Playtech.
    3. Playtech.

    OK, a bit trite, but related to a casino on the NCD list, tucking affiliates up and no doubt have the rogue jackpot instalments rule plus no doubt a sudden urge for Notarized ID via the Philippines should you win a few grand - of course that's assuming they pay more than few grand a month out.

    I'd say avoid.

    I quite like Playtech and used to play it quite regularly a couple of years ago but very rarely nowadays. There just doesn't seem as much bang for your buck and playtime is extremely short.

    However, having played at Casino.com extensively I can vouch for their reliabilty and you will get paid with no problems!*




    *just don't win any jackpot


    and bear in mind that 90% of the games are somehow jackpot- related

    I can't tell if you are joking :eek2:

    Any casino that has a clause in it meaning I'll get royally shafted if I ever actually win "BIG" will never see a penny from me.

    Well then I guess it just falls into one of two categories really. As a low- roller I've taken some bonuses and also NDBs and they have always paid me, so from personal experience I've found them to be a decent Playtech outfit.

    As for winning big, I wouldn't know. It doesn't strike me as a good place to place to high- roller, as with any Playtech joint as most of their flashier games are tied to jackpots....hence if you were to win a major one these places tend to pay out in small increments.

    I get what you are saying. But my problem is this -

    Playtech casinos that enforce a payout limit on progressives are THIEVES, pure and simple.
    A progressive jackpot comes from money which is pooled from countless other casinos running the same game(s). The jackpot itself does not come from the casino's own pocket.
    Yet when a progressive is hit, Playtech (disgusting company for this reason alone) pay the jackpot TO THE CASINO first, and entrust them to pay it to the player (rather than doing what Microgaming and NetEnt do - pay to the player direct).

    Of course, this is like Christmas fucking day to the casino who now have a huge sum of money (often in the millions), sitting in their account(s) gaining interest, earning the casino a small fortune the entire time. Whilst the player gets spoon-fed a few grand here, a few grand there, and misses out on an enormous sum of money in interest alone.

    It is a pathetic practice reeking of the lowest form of rogue-ish behaviour. There is not one single casino in the entire land of internet that could ever be called "reputable" whilst intentionally robbing a player of what is rightfully THEIRS :mad:

    I apologise for my language. But this sort of thing pisses me off.

    You are not wrong there, it's actually incredible that they are allowed to carry on with this practice. It is unethical without a doubt and it seems that most if not all Playtech- only casinos are just finding new ways to copy each others' terms to shaft the player and hold onto the money. It seems like Playtech themselves are doing their part first so it saddens me that their reputaion as a software provider is being tarnished by these rogue terms.

    I'm pretty sure this group do NOT have the cash-out restrictions for Progressive Jackpots.
    None of their casinos are listed in the Rogue List for this, and being UKGC licensed, I don't think they would be allowed such a practice - at least, for UK players anyway.


    I'm 99% convinced that these Progressive Jackpot rules stem from Playtech themselves. i.e. they are the default terms and it is only the good casinos who change them to something less unethical.
    Playtech are based in Israel, as are most of the rogue Playtech casinos - you do the maths... :rolleyes:

    Well there you go, I now know a little more about Playtech, and I still love their back catalogue. I guess my original point stands to reason - just!

    Casino.com seem to quite sound in my book, but ask me again when I win a PJ and I'll let you know then

    Thanks guys. Never really play expecting to hit a big one. I don't really agree with the jackpot payout scheme myself, but it's the titles like Hulk, Baywatch and Pink Panther etc that have me excited. Spent a fair amount of time playing some pretty decent games I tended to low-roll anyways at Playtech before I got casino-street-smart. Never deposited more than 25-50 and always tried to cash out by 400. It only took a half dozen to actually never pay me at all, even though I won fair and square (like City Club casino) (wish I knew this place existed back then...lol I think I still have a cashable balance there, even after like 5 years, but they wont let me have at it) to finally realize Playtech casinos suck for the mostpart!

    Maybe it's be a good idea to check - I admit I didn't because usually it's a safe bet PT casinos will have either the notarized BS term or a drip-feed term somewhere. If KK is right then you'd be good to go. The only confirmed concern then will be a casino on the NCD list.

    If KK is right (and he probably is), then what I said doesn't apply to casino.com

    Apologies to goatwack :thumbsup:
