July 25th, Vegas Partner Lounge is launching their " new" casino. They will be getting rid of their downloadable casino, and adding new providers. Netent, Quickspin, PlayNGo etc. Anyone playing on Maple will have their account migrated to Crazy Vegas, using existing log in credentials. Casino Mate and Golden Riviera will have a stand alone with same games added. I'm really excited with this! I haven't deposited in eons with these guys, but have kept in touch over the months via e-mail. They are a great bunch of people <3 :D

One of my most played brands / operators until they dumped us in the UK.

Would be good to see if multi - providers encourages multi - licences, I hear Go Wild have done or doing so.

I LOVE these guys! You can call and just chat with them, lol. They don't treat you as a number, they treat you as a family member, as odd as that may sound. I have to leave for treatment in 20 min, but I will call them when I get back and see if they are going to add UK players in the fold :)

The caveat is that without MGS downloadable software, you miss out on the wide assortment of video poker (57 games!!). Yeah, I know, I know, most everyone here is a slot addict, but it's shortsighted to toss the VP players to the wind. Netent's VP sucks, Playtech's VP sucks, most every software provider VP sucks. Downloadable Microgaming is awesome.

Hey Bryan, i'll take your word for it any day, but would also appreciate a little elaboration? Why exactly is MG VP so good in your opinion, and what do the other examples lack? I personally almost never play VP anymore, except the occasional hand on either 32Red, or 3Dice (i think 3Dice VP may be one of the best in terms of returns/autoplay and/or graphics) so am no expert, but i would think if the RTP and the playing speed are similar - and multihand, level up and jackpot variants are present, they all are pretty much alike right?

Also, wouldn't they be able to convert those games to a web or HTML5 version?
If there's an in depth thread about it, i'll definitely settle for a link:p

Cheers

*Update. I talked to the casino, and I am to check back with management tomorrow. The VIP host said they were discussing adding UK back in yesterday, but he doesn't want to give me the wrong answer. VP as far as he knows will still be available with Microgaming. Everything that was on the download version will be on this platform, but with added providers. I told him to check for sure and to give me a definitive answer tomorrow. I feel crappy and going to go lay down. Enjoy your day/night :)

Actually, we should have a forum exclusively for VP, like we do for slots.

Besides the standard VP, MGS VP offers multi-hand up to 100 hands in just about every flavor (Double Joker, Double Double Bonus, Bonus Deuces Wild etc.), then there is the Level Up (totally different strategy - much like Multi-Strike), and that comes in about five variations. And then there is Reel Play Poker, which is much like your SPin Poker, but this is only one flavor - Jacks or Better.

No other software provider offers these - not even IGT, which is an absolute shame.

This showed up in my e-mail this morning. Sorry UK players :(:(

Hi Jennifer


Hope you are well today.


I managed to have a chat with our Managers regarding UK players and video poker as you had enquired. Unfortunately, UK players will still be unable to register on our new platforms as there are more complex regulation procedures that need to be followed according to UK gaming authorities. Maybe in the future we will be able to take in UK players but not for now. However you will still be able to play Video poker.


Regards,

I wonder what f their cash out times will change

If you are VIP status, which doesn't take much, you can have it flushed. Typically depending on what method you use, it takes the next day to show up in your bank account. Also they are very generous with their bonuses. Again if you are VIP and you have a bonus attached, if you have reached an amount that you want to cash out? They will remove the bonus if it hasn't been played out. I haven't played on there for a long time because 10 dollars doesnt go anywhere on MG, but with all the new providers, I am in!

I agree, but even more important than offering less games is the fact that the browser-based MG video poker games are really slow and clunky. The MG download games play very fast and have a great feel: they're definitely my favorite video poker games. Paytables generally vary from OK to very good (with some bad ones thrown in)

I hope Microgaming will upgrade their browser-based video poker to get the games to play faster and smoother.

Up And Running

Crazy Vegas is now up and running! Anyone who had a Maple account, it has been migrated over. To log in, you have to go the Maple Casino page, a pop up will prompt you to change your password, then when this is done, you will be able to log on with existing user name and new password. They are working really hard on getting UK licenses. The graphics are amazing, huge amount of games, live games included. Take a peek. I have no money to deposit, but was given a free 10 to try. Everything looks great! :p

I was just playing at Crazy Vegas. They are now operated by MT SecureTrade Ltd., everything seems to be set up like Guts, cashier etc.

It was not a error free move though. I noticed banking details and previous KYC data are missing. Also different language versions are not working. English version works, but if their settings are identical to Guts, some games will not show on English version of the site (for example Cleopatra does not show if language is set as English, will show up if language is changed to Finnish [@Guts]).

Another thing was, that I could not find any T&C listed anywhere. Also the promotions page comes up empty.

VPL could have done a better job in the change to browser based gaming. It's not like they are new to the business.

The new terms came up for me. Infact I had to read and agree to them before continuing. I have never played at Guts so I can't compare, but I will forward this off to them. They are really keen about player experience ( not sure why there is no active rep, but I brought it up to them)
Thanks :)

The new T&C came up on first login for me too. But after playing for a while, I wanted to re-check their bonus terms. I was not able find a link to these anywhere on the site.
