    I have read a number of posts from players who have had to wait forever to get paid. So I wanted to share my experience with Nostalgia and Phoenician casinos. When they say "instant withdrawals through Neteller" they are not kidding!! :notworthy

    I saw the Meister's posts for Nostalgia and Phoenician and thought, "what the heck" I will give them a try. I received the promised 100% bonus (sticky) from each and began to play. I met the playthrough and managed to increase my bankroll by six times with one casino and ten times with the other. I cashed out and asked for instant payment through Neteller.

    The money was in my Neteller account immediately in both instances. I thought, well this is the way it is supposed to be. After having had to wait weeks to get paid from other casinos, this was a very pleasant and refreshing experience.

    And if life couldn't get any better, they even put the bonus money back in my account to play another day.

    Cheers to the Meister, Nostalgia and Phoenician casinos. Bravo!

    Yep, Phoenician group have very good reputation, and both casinos are in my top-list, BUT recently i saw that their Comp-system and other things is not in my top-list at all. Sometimes i feel, that they are only "instant payments casino", nothing more. But ok, i still play there in future.

    And their CS, it works smoothly, and they reply always, but it is so schematic (i'm not sure is that right word)

    "Dear Sir/Madam", etc, ...and they don't use their names.

    ...once again Global Player do everything better! :thumbsup:
    Ok, sometimes they pay in 4 hours,
    since Phoenician group pay in 4.38 min

    I couldn't agree less!

    Suezcat - you don't happen to work at, or be related to someone who works at these casino's by any chance? :what:

    Despite my reservations about giving RTG another go after avoiding them like the plague for the last few years - I decided to give one a go on the basis of the Meisters recommendation. I must have forgotten WHY I've been avoiding them - but I soon found out!

    These so-called 'bonuses' are really just another trick to get people to sign up. I read all the T&C's first, and knew it was a 'sticky' bonus, but I didn't expect this:-
    I deposited $100 & got $100 bonus. I met the 10x wagering requirement, but had some pretty bad 'luck(?)' so by the time I had done this my bank was well below $100. I knew & accepted I couldn't withdraw this, so carried on gambling until I got to a low point of around $30.
    OK then - that's $30 of bonus money left - right?
    The T&C's say bonus can't be withdrawn, but any winning made from it can. So I carried on & struggled back to $61 in the bank = $31 made from the bonus money. So I tried to cut my losses by withdrawing this.
    It was refused. They now say I can only withdraw winnings above $100!
    My conclusions are:-
    1. They deliberately word their T&C's to hide this fact.
    2. These 'sticky' bonuses are not worth the web-page they're written on!
    3. I must have been MAD playing at an RTG site again!

    So I URGE everyone to avoid these, and similar sites at all costs!

    Do yourselves a favor & NEVER gamble on a 'sticky' bonus.
    There are plenty of proper bonuses out there to be had - Crypto casinos are world leaders in this - check out You must register/login in order to see the link. for a list.

    Now I must stop writing and think of a good way to turn $61 into $161! :D

    I have also found with Phonecian that I do OK... At small bet amounts. Any large bet and I lose. Similarly, if I have won a bit I find that suddenly I go on the longest losing streak. I guess I should stop, but I thought 'cannot go on like this forever'.

    Got $125 up to $235. Suddenly, every bet lost and after around 7/8 losing hands I thought.. this one has to win. Put down $100 and nope that lost too.

    And unfortunately this has happened every time at phonecian. Do ok to start with small bets and the suddenly every hand is a loser.

    Probably not going to play their any more.

    Either that or an affiliate looking to keep up the good publicity and maintain the spectacular affiliate deals this group offers. If anyone thinks the affys are all currently pimpin' this lot to the absolute maximum because of the instant Neteller payouts to players, think again and try this for size: $250 for each player sign up plus 40% of player losses. It's a total feeding-frenzy in affy land at the moment.

    caruso, how can they afford to do that. That is crazy, either they have deep pockets or they going for broke.

    Not sure about Nostalgia & Phoenician in general, but I don't see any reason to complain about this bonus, or sticky bonuses in general. Your reasoning about the remaining money being bonus money & therefore any winnings from it being withdrawable is more or less logical, but I don't know anyone who's done a sticky bonus & thought for one second it would work like that!

    It's completely standard that you can never withdraw anything if your balance is less than the bonus amount. Sticky bonuses are high-risk but definitely another way of making money for the player. The only problem is when you're betting your whole balance on an outcome (which is generally the best strategy) you really do have to trust the casino in question to be truly random :eek:
