Hey everyone,

I thought for some people around here it might be important to hear about my experience with these 2 Casinos ... hope this is the right place for it, in case it aint, please move my thread :)
First of all, I got my money :) I played their 25 EUR No Deposit Bonus at Royal Apollo on May 10th, managed to meet the wagering requirements and decided to stop at 75.12 EUR (even though they had a 100 EUR max cashout). After a lot of live chat conversations, I deposited 25 EUR (minimum deposit) through Moneybookers, so my balance was 100.12 EUR ... as the inital bonus itself wasnt cashable, I requested a withdrawal of 100.00 EUR, but knew in the end it would be 75.12 EUR, so actually I made a total of 50.12 EUR.
On the same day, I played at Vegas Regal. After claiming their 12 EUR No Deposit Bonus, I did the same as before, mostly playing "As The Reels Turn" and "Hole In Won" :)
Managed to meet their wagering requirements, having an actual balance of 75 EUR, which was the max cashout in this Casino. However, this bonus wasnt sticky, so I could - after depositing 25 EUR - actually request a withdrawal of 100.00 EUR (75 winnings + my own deposit). So, total winnings = 75 EUR.
Even though I read (thanks to this forum) Rival Casinos wouldnt be the fastest in payout, I couldnt help but contacting the live chat after 3 business days (both Casinos list 2-5 business days for Moneybookers withdrawals), I know, Im such an impatient person :D
OK, to make a long (at least it seemed to me!) story short, I requested both withdrawals on May 10th and received (after 8 emails from Royal Apollo telling me to claim a 25% bonus on my withdrawal reversal!) both of them at 7:58 PM on May 18th!
So I must say, even though it took a little longer (on the other hand, keep in mind it was a free chip), I can recommened both Rivals. Thank You to Royal Apollo & Vegas Regal for a total of 125.12 EUR! :)

If there is some interest, I could also post about my (great!) payout experience on 15 (or 20?) FreeSpins at the Go Wild Casino (Microgaming).

Keep rocking :)

Unlike some others here I am not surprised your experience was generally a pleasant one. As far as I know there has never been a case of non-payment from any Rival casino provided the player has not broken any T&C's.

The only very frustrating thing about Rivals is their very slow payments at the moment; my last one from Fortune Reels last week was a total of 8 days (including the weekend, so 6 working days). IMHO they are safe, but you do need to have great patience at all but a handful of them.

I'm sure many people would love to hear your experiences at other casinos too!
