Hi all i thought i would share a little of my personal experiences of playtech casinos i have tried out, think i have run out of good ones to play at! but i do really enjoy the playtech slots. I haven't played at paddy power or betfred yet as none of the offers have really grabbed my attention.

Fly, There were a couple of small hiccups that were very quickly rectified, customer support was great and my withdrawal was processed in less than 12 hours, yes i managed to come away with some nice winnings on my first play! not sure how with 50x bonus playthrough but i think maybe wizards did it. The issue i had was that it wouldnt allow me to withdraw back to the card i deposited with but this was quickly processed manually instead. Would play here again no doubt.

Omni, Customer support was great no issues here, can't comment on withdrawals as i didnt make it that far this time.

Betfair, I know they are down as rogued but i really enjoy playing here probably the place i have deposited most on, never had any issues with bonuses, withdrawals processed quickly, customer support is so so but mostly no issues.

Bet365, Good customer support although long wait to get through on the live chat at times, no issues with bonuses but i was not lucky enough to get to the withdrawal process this time.

Winner, I would say overall winner seemed ok, required i.d for withdrawal but no major issues. Probably wouldnt bother here again wasnt really wowed by anything.

African palace This has been the only truly terrible place i have played, if i had only seen more about them before i foolishly deposited to be able to get my winnings from the no deposit bonus. Supports bad, withdrawals im not sure they exist a 3 week wait so far for a modest withdrawal, maybe one day i will see the money who knows. The return to balance still shows after all this time, it was said to have GBP as currency it does not, only method available to withdraw was by wire transfer which required IBAN and swift numbers.

Boyle, No issues support was fine some nice promotions, didnt get to the point of withdrawal with them though so can't comment on that side of things.

Gala casino, quite long wait to speak to live support at times although they are helpful when you do speak to them, not a lot of promos available but i know my moneys safe here which is such an important part of it, won a small amount on the no deposit bonus had to deposit £20 to withdraw but it was processed quick enough.

Coral, some good promos for new customers but not so much after the welcome bonus played a good bit here without issues but didnt make it to the withdrawal process here. Support sometimes slow again.

Casino del rio, Really odd experience here played with the no deposit bonus no win, deposited £20 for a big £100 bonus so thought i would get lots of play out of it, but when i went to look through the slots after the deposit i was shocked to see a lot of the games were showing as £10 minimum bet per line or more, checked with support they said this was correct so i just withdrew my deposit straight back out again. Went back to check on my withdrawal and the prices were different mostly showing as from 1p per line. Was in contact with support over this but no resolution was found not sure if they thought i was lying or they were trying to cover their tracks.

Golden galaxy, I can see this place is not listed here probably for the best, Won on the £25 no deposit bonus and was required to deposit £20 to be able to withdraw, wouldnt accept my card type although it stated they did. Live support didnt work email response took 3 or 4 days and was in no way helpful someone from the casino was supposed to be "taking care" of this but i never heard anything back. Just gave up on this one.

Club gold, I actually really enjoyed playing here, no issues with welcome bonus managed to come away with a win which after sending in i'd was processed quickly also get lots of free chips from them and customer support are pretty good. played here a few times now and overall been a positive experience.

Genting, no issues had a £30 bonus on a £10 deposit support was good didn't win anything but the casino itself seemed good.

Jackpot 247, Don't remember much about this place only played there once it wasnt bad it wasnt good was just fine really, wagering terms seemed higher than most that i have seen.

william hill vegas, Tried out the £20 risk free on the vegas section, didn't win but the £20 was refunded as withdrawable cash within 24 hours of the end of the 48 hour promo period. support was fine.

I have played at a couple of other places but nothing worth mention, hope it's ok for me to share this information and any questions feel free to ask.

Unfortunately you're playing with fire when playing Playtech.
Fortunately you've named all the decent fast-paying Playtechs there except probably the best, paddy power.
You've named some craphouses too. One other good one is Supercasino.com
Generally stay with the big bookies' sites and you'll be OK.
Some you've named (like winner) will NOT pay you a jackpot in one go if you win it, but only a few k a month. This is despite getting the WHOLE amount up front from Playtech. Invariably if these sites have 2 million quid of YOUR prize they encounter 'trading difficulties' and fold or offer you a percentage all at once then the rest vanishes into the ether.
Don't take the risk -ONLY play at Playtechs on the accredited list just in case. The jackpot-withholders are on the not recommended list.

Hi thanks for the reply, yep im fairly new to playing at online casinos, im now trying out different software but there are a few playtech ones i would trust to play again on. With regards to the jackpot i noticed about that after playing at most of these as i have terrible luck and never win big that luckily didnt affect me. Thinking about trying out 32red as my first MC casino as i can see they seem to be held in a good view. If anyone has any suggestions on software or sites to try i noticed guts and betat are rated well but im a sucker for a big bonus when trying out somewhere new! I believe supercasino is linked to jackpot247 if i remember correctly i did also play there.

Yes Playtech is my favorite software. You have named quite a few of the good casinos also some bad ones. I personally play at Club Gold and have never ever had any issues there, my cash-out for $1,300 went through smoothly as well as other cash-outs at around the $1,000 mark. They have good regular bonuses and free chips. I also play Omni which I really like I haven't played at Fly as much mainly because I haven't downloaded the software. Both have pretty high WR but on PT slots it's certainly doable.

But yes as Dunover pointed out stick to the accredited casinos if you plan on playing the progressives. You never know you could have a jumbo win and you don't want to be stuck being drip fed.

You won't find big bonuses at Bet365, but they are just about as solid as they come IMO. Canadians can't play Paddy Power, but I've heard nothing but praise for them.

I'm a fan of Club Gold as some may know, but their monthly cashout limits are fairly low if you are not a high level of VIP. Great support though and lots of free chips, even if wagering is high and max withdrawal fairly low on the free chips.

Always extremely important to read and understand terms of the bonus... they vary pretty widely among Playtech casinos.

You should give Betfred a try.I have never had a single problem with them and withdrawals to Neteller are super fast.As you are in the UK you should get verified without the need to submit documents (based on my own experience).They also have double up deposit promotions of £25 and £50 on every Saturday and Tuesday.

I wasn't happy with their stance on the Speilo incident. Didn't they say they would refund customers that had played the games and then never did? I love Playtech but would never play there even though they are accredited (still). I do believe everything else is on the up and up though :)

I do have some reservations with betfred ive heard mixed opinions on them. Plus my hubby is a Man city supporter and fred being a big UTD fan he doesn't approve of me lining freds pockets ;) I may give paddy power a try at some point but i will hold out till i see a promo i like the look of. Tried sports interaction yesterday with the CM special promo code,bonus wasnt credited on deposit but the support did it manually, but i have never lost so much so quickly on playtech slots before so grumpy me i like to get lots of play out of my deposits :p

You never know,you might hit a winning streak and empty the Betfred coffers which would make you very popular with your hubby:laugh:I am a massive Liverpool fan so for once i am really enjoying the season but gutted than Man U are having a relatively bad time (not).

coral is pretty good

they have a acca bonus

and for vip they have a monthly £100 which is 100% all games .

You dont need 15,000 cp to join vip, as if you mainly play slots they will invite you earlier( obviously VIP stand for valuable loser)

just from doing acca and other promos+ playing 1 or twice a week £20-£40, i was invited to vip

Harder to be invited if your a table games player
