    In your opinions and experiences, what Casinos do you guys here find to be the most fair and respectful, that do not rig the game into their favour and offer nothing but a fair and honest gaming experience for it's gamers?

    Awfully curious! Thanks.

    Some thought about this very topic...

    ***

    Great idea for a thread! :)


    Funny that "Paradigm" should bring up this very topic this afternoon (my afternoon that is... ;) ). At least in my perception, I really think it depends on the game. I usually gauge the software at hand, and I take it even further by considering what casino I'm going to. I've been told (and read) time-and-time again that all the casinos under a particular software provider ALL play-out the same way. IOW, the all use the same RNG. And that may very well be true, but my gutt feeling and personal records would indicate otherwise.


    The best game to indicate the software and the casino (in my opinion) would be single-hand BJ.


    Having played MG BJ on-and off-for the better part of a year, I forgot what absolutely "PURE" BJ looked like. Needless to say, I'll not comment on MG BJ for the time being. But... having played at "totalbet" this week, I was stunned at how random the cards were falling. It was like, playing at the local B&M back in Winnipeg. Or like my early days of playing exclusively at PlayTech, where I used to feel as though I was getting a fair shot, win-or-lose (back in '02-03).


    I was scared-off (and scarred) by what I saw from "Intercasino's" BJ after numerous sessions last year. Despite both casinos running on the same software (Cryptologic), I can't tell you how impressed I've been with "totalbet". And although I may regret this, I'm thinking of playing at "Intercasino" again.


    And for what it's worth, looking at your question again, I have a hard time lumping "fair" with "respectful". Why is that? "Fair" can be perceived as a casino that gives you great bonuses/offers, and that will always pay on time w/o any red-tape. But to me, that should also include how well the games play-out for the player.


    Some of the most "respected" operations, offer EVERYTHING, but I can't buy wins from them. I do much better (always have) with the lesser-known/safe operations.


    With my selection of most played games falling-in-and-out of fashion by the month, I'm sticking with BJ (for the moment). And this will be strickly based on paying attention to who's doing what, I have this MAJOR inkling that those who come out ahead at the end of the month probably play primarily at "Cryptologic" casinos, and everything else is secondary. That's not necessarily a knock on MG operations (because they have a high number of quality and elite operations), but that RNG has got WAY too many negative swings happening. If someone who was new to online gambling wanted my input on whether or not MG casinos are great, I'd give it a passing grade with my endorsement, but at this point I'd do so without any enthusiasm. :cool:


    As far as pretty much all "Cryptologic" casinos go, they're all pretty much amongst the best operations around. They may have only a fraction of the casinos that the other big 3 software provider's provide, but they're probably at this point in time, the best. If I were investing in a casino, it would be 32Red, but if I were starting a casino, it wouldn't be with MG. Kudos to "Crypto" getting rid of that whole "E-Cash" nonsense.


    BTW, is it just me, or are there a TON of "CANADIANS" joining-up as of late? :what:

    Being a roulette player, i judge fairness of casinos by how much and how oft I win there (or if I didn't cashout in time, how long I had fun).
    If RNG is not rigged, it's possible to win even playing roulette (high HA). :p

    So in my personal opinion:

    TRIDENT LOUNGE is 120% fair

    Harrods, King Neptunes, Golden Reef - 100%

    Spin Palace, 32Red, Arthurians - 99%

    888, Intercasino - 98%.

    All others - < 90%.

    Of course, it's all subjective depending on how much I cashed out at particular casino ;)

    But I always test a new casino by roulette, if roulette seems OK, all other games should be also OK IMHO, then I can play without any doubts.:cool:

    I never played there - can't say anything :confused:
    But I am going to try casino Challenge - I've read somewhere they have a very good payout percentage on table games, in particularly roulette. :)

    Too bad William Hill doesn't accept german players, they also have a high payout percentage on roulette.

    It's funny because whenever I play "Play Mode" on various Casinos, it tends to be MUCH MUCH easier to make money than the Real Mode.


    This is what I find very skeptical. I'm not going to play 100,000 hands to present accurate facts about that, but yeah.



    888 is a good casino? I thought they were kind-of 'riggy' as well.

    Hahaha, I put up a flag there for you "jonevegas". :D

    I shouldn't throw-out esoteric references like that (because I'm thinking only one other forum member will get that), but for the record, I had better luck at McPhillips Street Station. In a matter of 72 hours, I went on a run, where I cleaned-up on BJ. I took "McP" for roughly $4,500, and then "Club Regent" for another $2,000 (driving back and forth between both casinos). I thought I was invicible, and well, you know how these stories generally end. In part, that's why I was able to come out here to South Korea. :cool:

    From experience

    For best service and knowing their software is good I say Monaco Gold...(Playtech)
    However I still have the question if they are related with CD.. which wouldn't be good... However their service is great...

    Gaming experience will have to be Playtech... But, unfortunately not all their casinos work in a good way.

    Riverbelle is very nice.

    But, without experience with their casinos Cryptologic casinos have to be the most trust worthy... They have showned for the last couple of years how business are done.... According to comments from other players their gaming experience is excellent plus CS is quite good.

    No doubt Trident Lounge by far...

    I have got to agree with Lydia about Trident Lounge...

    In my experience with them, I have found the utmost professional, courteous, and prompt service with all of the departments across the board (customer service, security, accounts department).

    I recently did a cashout (and this is not the only reason I am praising them, btw) and had to communicate back and forth with them via live chat and email. I had used Payspark and there was an issue as to whether or not the payout would go to my Payspark Internet account or Payspark ATM account. I also had to email Payspark a few times as well, but Trident's representatives were so quick in responding that by the time I finished sending an email to Payspark my response was back from Trident (within minutes). All was settled and I was still paid within 48 hours (meaning the complete process where I could withdraw my winnings from the ATM). I have had to deal with other casino groups as far as verification, etc., and the payout had been delayed by a week or more.

    The security department as well had noticed the two separate Payspark entities and asked for verification (id, etc.) Soon after I sent it, they authorized/validated the account for future use with no discrepancy.

    I also think that Trident has a great bonus/comp program. Not only the Trident Cash Card based on collecting stamps per deposit (will receive a bonus after all stamps have been collected), but also a loyalty cash back program.

    As far as fair, and this is speaking in terms of the thinking many of us have that, once you have a big cashout, it will probably be a long time before you win again.... soon after my cashout ($1000), I hit again for $600 (which, unfortunately and my fault, I did not cash out that second time and played it back..but such is life). ;)

    I was gone flyfishing in the Merritt Kamloops area so sorry to take so long to get back to you but my poison was right beside McPhillips st at the (was it conti) anyway the VLT parlour, I hit a straght flush and was getting pissed on Club beer and doubled up 4 or 5x times for max 4000 credits, and then went to McPhillips and played some stupid monkey slot and won another 2k, that was my downfall!!
