Is anyone playing at any of these casinos for real? Are any of them safe to play for real? Any info anyone?

I have played on the no deposit welcome bonuses at all 5 of the casinos....lost them all but with lots of playtime. Lucky Creek also offered no deposit bonuses on the first 6 Mondays...which I finally won on the fourth try and was paid quickly and without hassle in about 5 days ($500 minus $20 fee).
I really enjoy the software so I made my first deposit last nite. Lost it, but will be depositing again soon. I had been getting tired of the same old same old.....so this was fresh and fun for me.
Only thing, and as other posters have noted, there are times when I have not been paid for a line win..... and also on a few occasions, the reels will continue to spin and you have to exit and reenter the game and the bet will be lost.
If they could just iron out those glitches...

I tried out Lucky Creek on the ND chip, the games are not bad and the playtime was on par, but I didn't win. Haven't heard a word from them.

I tried Mandarin Palace a few months back from their mailer (still don't know where they got my info), didn't like it back then and never returned. Since then I get about 4 emails a week despite asking for them to stop.

yeah, I hear THAT! Some of their slot games are quite good (graphically) and can pay out pretty well too.

I noticed that in Lucky Creek when I was playing the ND but I don't remember it happening in any of the others.

I tried out the Lucky Creek casino, on a ND chip and free play. I don't like the fact that I easily noticed some win lines not being paid. Makes me wonder how much I am missing.

They have a long, long way to go before I would deposit my money there.

The games are not bad, some I even liked, but no on line casino should display such blatant "cheating of the player".

I was paid out on the ND at Lucky Creek, 500.00 minus the fees and it came right on time, this was a few weeks ago and i didnt have any problems with them at all :thumbsup: Great customer service and fast feedback with the number so i could track it, rare you get that treatment from a ND withdrawal.

I had mine wired as well....and it took about the time they said....just under 5 days. In the cashier it says they take out $30 for a wire but I believe they deducted close to $60 from mine as well:confused:

I emailed them about this issue a month or so ago, and they told me they were aware of this problem and it has been fixed. Was this recently that you had this issue? This happened to me quite a bit a few months ago, but haven't noticed the line-win issue in the past month.



Mandarin Palace operates on BetOnSoft and I am pretty sure Grand Prive is behind it. Not 100% sure, but 80% sure.

Live chat told me 2 weeks ago that they (Mandarin, Treasure, Lucky Creek, Grand Eagle, Wizbet) are NOT affiliated with the Grand Prive group.

That's what they also told me today on live chat. However they could not confirm or deny that Grand Prive have an ownership interest in BetOn Soft.

JetSet mentioned Mandarin Palace in his article concerning GrandPrive upping sticks.

Also there is a thread on my forum on OCR dating back to May 2009 concerning Mandarin Palace and Grand Prive were mentioned back then as a possible owner behind the scenes.

Again I am not 100% sure, just 80% sure at this stage that there is a link other than just using the same software. No doubt more digging will uncover further info.

There is still the lingering question as to why these casino are invite only, which I never got a straight answer on.....and where they got the list of players for the invites.

They are US facing, and Grand Prive just got done screwing a lot of US facing affiliates.

Invitation only helps them escape the anger some of us have towards them.

The mailing list appears to be the Grand Prive list - or so I hear.

I never played at GP either and I live in Finland which is a "banned" country by GP but got a CD (or "invitation") last summer.

OT Messi scored 3 times in first half. Game over.

Same here

Never been with Grand Prive, not that I know of.
What casinos were Grand Prives? Back in those days I did not pay attention to who owned what and what sister sites were which, etc.
Pretty sure I only played the CM accredited at that time though.

I was living in hope when we scored first but without Fabregas it was always going to be difficult. We scored against Wolves only in the 94th minute during the weekend.

Thank You all4, I guess I could have googled myself (I am lazy at times:p), I appreciate your answer.
And I can honestly say I have never played at any of those places.
So how the hell did this group get my address? Better yet how did they get my *current* address since I no longer live where I did before the US was banned....curious.
