Hi folks,

With some players reporting they're being asked for KYC docs from Curacao-licensed crypto casinos (leading to some UK players unable to withdraw their funds) it looks like some casinos are - perhaps - proactively getting ready for new Curacao regulations, if and when they come in.

I'd like to know, if you have a moment - do you play at crypto casinos? Let us know in the poll here.

(For the purpose of this poll, I'm referring to crypto casinos operating in Curacao/other weaker jurisdictions/unlicensed sites.
 
If anyone has any suggestion on good crypto casinos, which let you play with only email and password, post them up

Just a word of caution, especially for any UK/US/other country not allowed to play at Curacao casinos; we've had reports of multiple crypto casinos locking players out of their accounts until a Know Your Customer (KYC) check has been performed, and if you're in the UK/US/Other restricted country your account will not be verified. This is likely down to the new Curacao rules that are set to be brought in soon.

I'd advise proceeding with extreme caution if you opt to go down this route. I've already seen players with £10K + balances locked out of their accounts (even from the biggest, most 'reputable' crypto sites'), and you will have little-to-no recourse if you end up in this situation and you've joined the casino from a restricted jurisdiction.
 
IF I fully understood crypto AND I could 90% play safe and get paid then I'd be there tomorrow

However the above not being the case, far from it, I will sadly have to stick with the nanny state OTT rules we humble UK'ers have to put up with.

The well know slogan "When the fun stops, stop" is no longer an RG statement, much more fitting for the fact that the 'powers that be' are draining the life out of a once relaxing and enjoyable past time.

In recent months I've had a couple of Player Arbitration (PAB) complaints against them, both non-payment issues and they were unresponsive. I can't offer links to those because our PAB service is private by I can offer a quote from one of those cases:
Try to get hold of support and they just lie to you and constantly say that they have have problems with their XRP node which is a lie. Now they don't even answer you and ignore you. They have now resorted to blatant stealing and lying. They have to be one of the most dishonest untrusty casinos' on the internet ...

As you can see, the story seems to be pretty consistent: not good and getting worse.

I believe @Smithyy recently posted some links regarding non-payment complaints, perhaps he'll drop by and refresh our memories.

Yes, in the last couple of days a lot of UK players with accounts at BCGAME found they were unable to withdraw. The casino was demanding KYC checks - something that would be impossible for UK players to complete, given that BCGAME isn't allowed to take UK players. However, it looks like it wasn't just UK players that were affected; a couple of days ago BCGAME also announced they were scrapping their loyalty program as it stands, and since then, hundreds of players, as @maxd shows in the TrustPilot screenshot shows, found their withdrawals to be stuck/unpaid.

HOWEVER, in a rather surprising twist of events, it looks like BCGAME has now accepted Driving License/Passport documents from UK players and processed withdrawals. However this looks like it's *just" begun happening, as I've only started to see a trickle of UK players reporting this - so anyone thinking of playing there, ESPECIALLY if you're in the UK, I would strongly recommend holding off for a few days to let things calm down and see what happens.

Thanks for this! A lot of online casinos have bad ratings in TrustPilot. My XRP cashouts and pretty much everything has been working without any issues at BC.

Yep, I usually don't pay any attention to TrustPilot - but in the last 48 hours it was a battle ground - as was BCGAMES' Twitter and other online gambling forums - almost every player was reporting the same thing. So in this case, it was worth paying attention to. Will be interesting to see how things pan out; I can't believ they're going to continue approving UK players - potentially - just days before the big 'Curacao overhaul' AND given that they're looking to enter the UK market with a UKGC license!

And so the nirvana of unlicensed crapto casinos for UK players comes to an inevitable end with non-payment and arbitrary account closures......

I'd never have guessed, it was like predicting Christmas in December. :rolleyes:
 
I have every faith that any lingering doubts and confusion will be cast asunder on the 28th, heralding a new beginning in Curacao's illustrious i-Gaming history.

That is, for those ministers and delegates not too bleary-eyed and wired from the rum, hookers and blow.

Last man standing wins! :cheerleader:

No need to be so happy about it Dazza, we just want what most of the rest of the world is allowed, without training wheels and nappies being force-fitted.

I'll go down fighting to the last shonky Curacao joint standing, and will never deposit so much as a single pound again into a UK so-called "online casino" - ever!
 
There are several casinos that accept crypto which do not specifically have the UK listed as a restricted territory, but instead have an ambiguous term stating that if it is illegal for you to play from the jurisdiction you reside in, your account will be closed.

Also on checking these few casinos, there are several territories listed, the UK being one of them, that no bonuses are allowed and any withdrawals made on the back of receiving a NDB, free spins or a deposit bonus will be voided.

Now these are not your Non GamStop type casinos, which as we are all very aware are scam sites.

The above is from checking out a few casinos which IMO are above board and I would have personally recommended. Regardless of the fact they are 'licensed' in Curacao.

Sorry, thread jacking this thread a little with this information. But the above was new to me and only came to light after I did a bit of digging.

Basically proceed with a LOT of caution.

I'm not happy about it, not gloating if that's what you think but seeing a depressing situation whereby you feel compelled to choose between unlicensed (Cure-a-cow) and unplayable (UKGC).

Not at an end - and other very good outfits on that side of the world - plus crypto like it or not is easy - cheap and fast.when you know how and where Plus I have made decent money playing the markets away from the casinos. Its here to stay so people need to get used to it. And no matter what the dross served up by the UK gambling scene is surpassed almost in every area now when playing offshore.
 
oh now some slots you get profit lost in crypto casino

I voted "Yes - in UK", but it depends on your definition of "Crypto Casinos".
I play at RTG & Rival casinos where the easiest way for me to deposit & withdraw is with Bitcoins. However, they also accept deposits by other methods.
