So - a sister casino of Nordicbet - powered by NetEnt and Microgaming. Since they are related to Nordicbet, I thought that a 30 fast track through the Baptism by Fire will suffice. Their listing here:
https://www.casinomeister.com/accredited-casinos/

Please post your comments here - Nordicbet is your man with the plan. You can contact him here:
https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/members/

For the casino's 300% bonus up to Euro 75,you can sign up here:

It has already come to the attention of the forum in another thread. It seems they have a few bugs to iron out. The most worrying has been a request to a player to correct a negative account balance by paying in extra money. Negative account balances shouldn't happen to start with, and the person sending that email should have realised this and not sent it out. The player posted that their balance had gone down to zero, not negative, so it looks like a glitch in the system.

They still only want Nordic countries along with New Zealand. No UK or European countries allowed.

What I find VERY odd however is that one of the allowed countries is Malta, yet they have a Maltese LGA license:confused::confused:

Malta do not permit casinos licensed there to take players from Malta, so how does Maxino get away with it.

That is not correct. Maxino's ordinary bonus is available for players from 18 countries including UK. Players from all of these 18 countries are also eligible for 10 free spins for signing up.

The special 300% deal that Casinomeister has posted may have another T&C, but this not their ordinary welcome bonus deal.

Wonder why no Canada on this bonus, as well we are getting penalized on the regular bonus 35xB+D as opposed to 50xB.

Well i contacted them regarding the mail i got,"Your account holds a negative balance"

I sent them a screen shot of my profile page from the casino,showing that my balance is 0 and not negative.

I got a quick answer from them and a apologie,a mistake made by them.

I see the UK is in a group that has 60x WR, the worst I have seen for MGS games.

Perhaps they fear my slot system:rolleyes:

I don't have any money that is luckier than the money generally available to players in the 40x B countries, so I won't bother until 60x becomes the industry norm.

Although they do accept these additional non Nordic countries, they do so on worse terms. Their target is still the Nordic countries, where there is also the 300% on offer.

I tend to avoid casinos that start imposing worse terms just because I am British - we get enough of this from companies like Apple and Microsoft, and the British consumer is fed up with corporations seeing us as "Treasure Island" when it comes to differential pricing of the same product.

They don't even have "Treasure Ireland" in the games list:mad: ;)

Careful when signing up to their affiliate program Maxino???? When I tried it said already registered.
I tried using username and password from Nordicbet. And it logged me in.

So If you are already affiliate for Nordicbet make sure you don't sign up again.

But no banners or anything for Maxino Casino.

Very confused here. Anyone willing to share the light for me? I know they are connected. But seems strange to me.

Thanks.

since also Nordic Gaming Group was bought by Betsson recently. Does this mean they will all get put into that program? So Nordicbet and Maxino will change to Betsson affiliate program? Affiliate Lounge.

The terms and conditions for the standard 100 sign up bonus are extremely hard to find, or is it only me?

You need to create a new account at Maxino not using your Nordicbet username. Once your account is approved, you should be able to access links and such. You can use mine in the meantime if that's helpful :p

Thanks Casinomeister,

You are right! I have tried your link and can see the t&c fine for your 300% bonus. Thats perfect...

However I would also like to able to see the t and c for the normal 100 for 100 bonus. I find it bad you have to make an account to see this. I dont want to sign up for anything without knowing what I am getting into! And it seems like they are brushing off UK players again anyway so guess I will stick to my usual places.

Surely blocking access to the T&C until AFTER you have effectively signed the contract is a rogue practice. One should always be able to read the full set of terms and conditions BEFORE you sign up. Even if you go no further, they STILL have your personal information that you would not have given had the terms not been to your liking.

If this was a completely unheard of new casino doing this, it would have some of the indicators in the "spot the rogue" advice.

I initially assumed the UK was not allowed because whilst it was easy to find the 300% offer and terms, it took a good deal of work to find the terms for the 100% bonus, and there WAS a sting for the UK and a few others, as we are in a special group deemed exceptionally lucky and have to make 50% more WR.

The other thing that put me off is that it gave me the "browser is outdated" message, so clearly there is no support for XP users as I have the latest possible version for that OS. I presume that my Windows 7 laptop will run it fine, but there would still be the extra 50% WR.

I'm sure they're shaking in their boots :rolleyes:

The WR is 60x BONUS ONLY BTW.

Only 40x for me though :D

I just clicked on terms and conditions before depositing, they were clear as day, both bonus terms and general terms, not sure where you are looking??

Their website, by the Meister's link.

They are there, but you have to scroll and click around a bit, whereas the 300% variant pops up straight away. The general terms do not say anything much about country specific exclusions of differences, these are in the bonus terms, and from the 300% one, it looked pretty clear that they were only interested in the Nordic countries + New Zealand and Australia. Although the 100% offer includes a few extra countries, the terms make it clear they are on a "second class" tier, with additional WR on the 100% offer over that applied to Nordic countries, and banned altogether from the Casinomeister special. It's not exactly inviting to UK players to be told right from the word go they are yet again "second class". There are plenty of Microgaming casinos that see the UK as a key market, and some even have offers that are for "UK players only". Nordic bet are probably going for those markets others don't like, as many of their "first class" countries are those that often get the "second class" treatment from other casinos who seem to think Nordic players are far luckier than anyone else.

The fact that two operators have opposite opinions of the luck of UK vs Nordic players proves the whole thing is based on prejudice rather than proven fact. It is like being ripped off by a builder, and then saying this proves all builders from that same area are bound to rip me off.

Canada is included in the higher rollover as well, I took the 100% but its moot now, 15 mins and gone, .90c bets, fastest NetEnt loss in my history of playing.

Please VWM! :rolleyes:
Where do you think the Nordic countries fit in? Or UK? *

However, even if this particular casino seems to like swedes I am fed up with casinos who wants to choose customers depending on where they live. In this case it's obvious that it's an marketing issue. An online casino should be able to reach all customers where it's allowed to gamble, and then treat them as equals. Different WR:s and bonuses really do make customers feel like they are less worth and I can't understand why, it's not more cheap or expensive to pay me or VWM to NetEller.

I will certainly register and take this 300% bonus offer, as I can't use bonuses at many places... Either bonus banned or because I'm a swede. :rolleyes:

Maxino, here I come! :D


* UK and the nordic countries are european countries.
