    I know that Golden Palace has already been rogued and/or not recommended, but I wanted to share this. My boyfriend had an account at Golden Palace, he played a bit but never really won - plus after reading opinions on THIS site, he decided to close his account with them.

    So he emailed support to close the account, and then when he tried to uninstall the casino, the computer's antivirus popped up a message that there was a trojan in the uninstall file!

    The corrupted file is Golden Palace Casino PT setup.exe, and the virus is called Win32:Trojan-gen

    This may be completely innocent, but I doubt it. When I looked up this particular virus, I found this description: Win32:Trojan-gen.(Avast AV name) - a Backdoor Trojan horse that allows a compromised computer to be used as a Web proxy. This Trojan also attempts to steal cached passwords from an infected computer.

    Make sure your virus protection is up-to-date! Happy gambling!

    grisoft.com gives a free version of avg-antivirus. It updates daily and in the three years I've been using it I have never had a problem. (sometimes a byt verify or java crap will land, but a simple ccleaner.com action will take care of it after avg notifies)

    I don't know Golden Palace, and couldn't find a casino contact here for them to alert them to the problem or tell them they had been 'found out'.

    Malicious. Thanks for the warning!!!

    SpyBot will also "catch" a Golden Palace malware type entry... as it will for some Microgaming entries... (it has to do with your password being kept on the casino log in page)

    The overall consensus is that these are not a real "threat".

    I just put them on "ignore" for future scans.

    This virus you found is troubling if that is indeed what it is.

    I don't know about Golden Palace. Is all else well there?

    oops, just googled, clicked alink, and it is Golden Casino. I know all I need to know.

    I'm probably the most tolerant of anyone I've seen here when it comes to casinos marketing to my inbox (spam) but these guys and their so-called affiliates are just asking for rogue status imho with their practices.

    I wouldn't deposit a nickle if they gave seven cents to charity. They are out of control, and if they think the attention they are getting here will be good in the long run (make them stand out) they are wrong.

    To be Rogued or not for their current 'marketing campaign' they have more than enough going against them: They do not pay, they do not communicate, and they produce shills.

    I know all I need to know about 'golden palace'.

    They should have a rep here to ease the weary mind of anyone who has downloaded their software, and they should fix that 'simple' problem. Not everyone here knows how to edit the register (if that's what it is) nor should we have to be geniacs to play online.

    Golden, KMA. You don't even divulge your software at You must register/login in order to see the link. which of course redirects to You must register/login in order to see the link.

    I must admit I was a little surprised at your post, you having been around quite a while.
    This group is one of the founder members of the 'rogue club' - a regular in the pit!

    Golden Palace is Playtech, therefore can not take American players, so they redirect to their 'sister' casino Golden Casino - an RTG specifically set up after IUGEA so they can still rip-off.. oppps sorry... accept Americans.

    BTW, unnecessary posting of their URL's is a little bit shilly IMO :eek2:

    I'm a shill bra:cool: I'd be glad to have this thread indexed in relation to this casino as long as everyone here speaks their minds, loud and clear.

    But yeah, Sorry, I usually do the link thing, was distracted, not focused at the moment. I'll be more careful in the future.

    I don't know the rogue list by heart. I click into ROGUE, hit control f, cancel, move to not recomended, try again, go to blunders etc. For golden palace I went to casino contacts because I've never heard of them. (if I don't participate in a thread it doesn't register)

    Thanks for pointing out that golden are rogues, I didn't get that feeling from one of the Meister's posts the other day (I could be mistaken) or I would have responded much differently.

    Using two licenses, have they no shame? r r r r ROGUE?

    Thanks for lookin out KK

    I had the same problem with Grand Online. I just left it installed I think...

    I've got 0.50 in there, but it won't download any new games (slots) so I can't get rid of it!
