    Had a great win but then, as usual, grandprive support failed to answer emails for two days finally called and told since VIP they would ask to have withdrawal expedited. I will post outcome for everyone to view.

    I know they are Rouged but I had a huge win at Lakepalace in July and thought I would try Roadhousereels and won. Their problem is poor response to emails and slow processing of payouts.

    Guess they just don't care.

    Guess no-one here will care either.
    If you play at a casino which is ROGUED by CasinoMeister - you get what you deserve IMO.

    They are rogued for a very good reason - they stole money from 100s of people by reneging on agreed contracts. If they'll stab their business partners in the back, how do you think they'll treat their players?

    For reference, these are all the rogue casinos under the Grand Prive umbrella:-
    Villa Fortuna
    Big Dollar
    Casino Grand Bay
    Roadhouse Reels
    Bella Vegas
    Lake Palace
    Jupiter Club
    Fortune Junction
    Jackpot Wheel

    (All are Microgaming casinos).

    FYI they didnt steal a cent. They used a cancellation clause. Almost every affiliate program has that clause, not limited to online casinos, and they can "enforce" it when they see fit.

    Even if you would be able to take them to court you would lose because you are not an employee or a consumer and companies generally have very little if any notion of obligation or commitment to you.

    And no Im not a lawyer but these are the facts.

    I have been playing at roadhouse reels for a couple of months and every single withdrawal has been processed. All quite quickly Followed up with a telephone call telling me it was being paid. I must admit i didn't realise that they were rogued. Must think twice now though.

    I am still astounded to see people say "I know they are thieves BUT" But what you think they will be kind once and not steal from you? Sorry but people that continue to play at these brands will not get my support or symphony!! If everyone banded together and told them to take a leap maybe they will feel the pain and learn a lesson that cheating players and affiliates is not the way to go!

    Why reward these clowns there are so many better and well deserved places to play at.

    There are plenty of affiliates that endorse casinos that have completely screwed over players.

    So it shouldn't be a surprise to see players acting equally nonchalant when the situation is reversed.

    While it's not an ideal situation, players at a casino don't really have the same interests as affiliates, so I don't see that a player boycott is necessarily rational.

    kasinoking...My post was to those thay play at Grandprive

    Sorry, but I win at Grandprive and was paid within 3 days afterall. Actually, they changed their "reversal period" to 48 hours and will not flush anylonger, but, after the 48 hours was up they paid my QT account.

    They are still bad at answering emails, so those that play there should phone instead.

    Atleast they have phone support unlike Inetbet which is promoted here and takes forever to answer emails at times.

    Bottomline, my post was basically informational to those that care and play there.

    I hope this post is also helpful to others.

    I don't post here as often as I use to because I find those responding to my thread really don't respond with helpful information and much of it negative commments.

    I make my own decisions on who I consider to be a rogue. I don't rely on this or any other website. I do however listen to others play experiences at a given casino or casino group; and I suggest others do the same.

    I didn't ask for anyones sympathy. you people need to stop responding with such ridiculous comments. I play where I win and get paid. I also attempt to let others know my experience at a given casino. Which is what this website is partly about. I won, 2000.00 on 50.00 deposits/casino lakepalace and roadhousereels. I deposited at several, non-rouged casinos and won nothing. Get a life!

    Oh yea.... not all of us are "sheeple"

    As you can see by other posts, there are those of us that play at Grandprive.
    Unless I am wrong, we are free to post our experiences even if they are rouged here. Correct?

    I think the majority here does not play at any Grand Prive casinos. But KK has made some valid points. Whether you consider valid or not that's your decision. And I wish for the life of me that members would stop telling others to get a life. Its not a nice thing to tell someone. Members here are being cautious there is nothing wrong with that. Is there? You want to play @ a rogue casino, that's your business, but do not expect the membership to accept it. When you posted this thread was you going to expect members to say good job? Congrats on you winnings? Hope you get paid? Was you expecting that? If you was, wasn't going to be by anyone who has the sense not to play at these casinos.

    Read my initial post..........


    I didn't ask anyone for anything. I believe if you read my initial post you will find it was a "Statement" not a question. And yes, I got paid within 3 days of my withdrawal. But as I said, they are slow to answer emails. The information was for those who play there. If you don't play there, then you shouldn't find a need to comment at all.

    I find yours and others comments to be much more rude or offensive then anything I have posted.

    I have always been paid by grandprive. I also had my biggest win ever at grandprive, $14000.00 on Break the Bank. I only, play Jackpot factory, Mini-vegas group and Grandprive since I am a VIP at all and get paid faster and win more then the others.

    I also play Club world, Rushmore and Inetbet. However, Inetbet least favorite due to lack of online support.

    First thing: I think you might misunderstand how forums work.

    You are free to post, others are free to reply/comment/whatever as they see fit.

    You don't 'own' the thread so it's not really up to you to say what is or is not a suitable response.

    I think you might be thinking of a blog where you post what you want to post and get to moderate the comments. We have blogs here at CM if that's what you're into: Member Blogs.

    Second thing: your original post said "Guess they just don't care."

    Like it or not that is pretty much an invitation for the rest of us to pitch in with our thoughts/comments/whatever of the subject.

    Getting snippy at folks when they do reply is seriously missing the point of what goes on here.

    I should also add that having members point out that you are playing at a known problem casino and one that is officially blacklisted here at CM is not a trivial thing. A substantial part of what we do here is help players with casino problems and warn them off of sites that are likely to bring them such problems. If you choose to ignore such warnings that is your business but you are in no position to tell others to 'shut it' when they remind you and others that trouble that way lies.

    Finally, your 'Get a life' comment and similar things you've been saying prompt me to give you some unasked for advice: chill a bit. There's no need to get all humpty, the replies people have made here are neither offensive nor trivial and deserve a lot more respect than you're giving them.

    Remember: you are free to post, the membership is free to reply. That's how this works.

    Worth to note is that Grand Prive is rogued because of bad business practice. Not because they havent paid their winners. And its quite obvious why they used their cancellation clause and I cant see how it would affect the players.

    I dont play there for various reasons but there are other MG casinos that are far worse.
    And no, I wouldnt recommend they either. But not for the reasons affiliates have they blacklisted.

    The problem is that they LIED as well. They first said the reason for cancelling affiliate contracts was that they were closing the casinos. This was a lie, they DID close them for US players, but those affiliates who recruited NON-US players, were completely "ripped off".

    This indicates how they do business, they are RUTHLESS, and if they can get away with something, they will try it on. They also pulled another stunt, they used their mailing list to recruit players to a different casino they were running at "arms length", thus cutting out affiliates. The intent at first seemed to be to move their non-US players over to Villa Fortuna, and close the other 5, but the other 5 are still open, and so is Villa Fortuna.

    They are one of the VERY FEW casinos to "bonus ban" me for PLAYING SLOTS, AND BEING DOWN, surely the ideal customer.

    Recently, I received a phone call from Grand Prive. The rep told me I could claim a special bonus of 100 for 100. I declined, and then he sweetened the pot, promising that if I did, the next day I would get ANOTHER 100% offer. He then told me this was only available today, by his special invitation.

    Since I was flush (after my 51000 winning spree at 32Red), and in the interests of research, I deposited the 100.

    Research results:-

    1) LIAR - although I DID get the bonus, it was NOTHING TO DO with the rep who phoned. I found out by checking Playcheck-detail view, and saw it was the standard eMagazine bonus I had in the post a month or so earlier.

    2) LIAR AGAIN - no 100% offer followed the next day.

    This demonstrates that the ethics ARE being extended to their dealings with players. They will make offers over the phone, often a ploy rogues use, and will later renege on at least part of the offer.

    This kind of behaviour (making false offers over the phone) is not something that a REPUTABLE casino would do, it is WORSE than the increasingly common practice of phoning players with offers if they reverse a withdrawal, something I have increasingly been getting from Prime casino (now uninstalled after my refusal to accept was followed by a "fraud audit" on my withdrawal:mad: - they paid, but too late - after I put the pressure on by giving them a formal 14 days notice before moving to an eCogra complaint).

    Did they actually ever say they were closing the casinos? Never saw any news about that only speculations.

    Grand Prive have "never" been ethical. Remember that Bryan rogued them back in 2006. Surprisingly didnt see any reaction by affiliates back then. I wonder why:rolleyes:

    Indeed, and another fine example of their unethical behaviour is the increase upto 48 hrs and the fact that you can no longer request a flush. Bad!

    They were back again!!!

    LIED again!

    Told me I only had 8 points before I reached Jack, and could have ALL THE BONUSES.

    8 points is a pittance, but it was 68, just as it was last time I checked.

    I am also BRITISH, and WE ARE ALL FRAUDSTERS & BONUS ABUSERS according to them, and now they want a BRIT back AND with BONUSES too!

    Now, it wouldn't be anything to do with them finally being FORCED out of the US market by Microgaming themselves, and needing to bring back those NON-US players that were once thought of as "poor quality".

    It's MY turn to tease them now:D

    I registered for their slots race promo, using the SAME name as I use everywhere, INCLUDING the Red Flush Birthday Fiesta, played for a bit, then stopped, then ........ nothing.........


    I await my phone call this week:D

    When I get it I will say, "hello, are you the rep who lied to me in August, or the rep who lied to me in September?"
