only when i try to download i get the message
the file was blocked because it does not have a valid digital signature that verifies its publisher

when i read that alarm bells started ringing, so was just wondering if its another scam

I noticed your T&C matches sections of the MiniVegas T&C word-for-word. Your bonus weightings also match MiniVegas' unique weightings. Are you connected with that group?

Old Chicago & Minivegas

Aka23, yep, Same people/assocations.

Different companies though 'cos Old Chicago is Malta Licensed, the rest are in Kahnawake.

Compare the home page of Old Chigaco to Grand Hotel :D
Then compare the italian notes in the source of both home pages. And file names used on the site, naming conventions, and if you get bored, email them both, and check the mail headers in the reply..
Site is also hosted on the same netblock as most of the Minivegas group..

It was an unfortunate choice of name then, the worst thing for a new casino is to have the same name as a rogue operator. A "Ltd" company would be expected to be the source of an URL bearing it's company name<dot>com, so if there is a site named webbet<dot>com, and a new company pops up called Webbet Ltd, players are bound to ask questions about an association.

Links to MiniVegas have been mentioned, although I have just had a look and it isn't obvious to me. Many similarities in terms are coincidence, as I am sure there are some default suggestions that come with any MG casino, such as the MG bonus system rules. MiniVegas tend to mix promotions between the bonus system and with alternative rules, not something I can see with Old Chicago, where the SUB rules are nothing like the MiniVegas rules for the SUB, which usually runs outside the MG bonus system.

Simply having a 100% SUB under "promotions" is a little boring (except perhaps for bonus whores:rolleyes:), and gives no indication of what regular players are likely to see running. The loyalty system is not "unique", it's bog standard MG - 1 point per 10 credits wagered, and 1000 points for 10 cashback (which is BONUS, not real cash).
Other MG casinos have moved away from this, and use tiered systems that reward regular players more the more they play. No mention of a VIP scheme either.

My question is why are the banking options so limited?
Also you accept Moneybookers deposits but they are not a cashout option :confused:

I have expanded upon this in introductions. Their banking pages are a mess:confused:

If you read them, and click through to "withdrawals", you would see Moneybookers mentioned, yet presumably you have reliable evidence to the contrary;)

I have also found the rules for credit card withdrawals somewhat confusing, depending on where you read, credit card withdrawals vary from "unavailable" to "mandatory" - you could hardly have a WIDER difference of opinion, could you:confused:

Ahh the website has been updated since last Week, then there were only 3 withdrawal options listed.
Either that or I am mixing this site up with another one but I think I am right as I decided not to try because of no MB withdrawals.

If they are liked to Mini Vegas,probably there is no neteller withdrawals,because Mini Vegas not paying back to neteller(my own experience).

Hi all,

Yes indeed Rusty, our banking section has been updated since that time, and before it did appear to be far more limited.

As mentioned, Vinylweatherman has made some succinct, valid observations on our thread in 'Introduce Yourself' which are currently under review so please expect changes soon!

Similarly if any other members have considerations for us regarding our website, please just let me know and I will deal with them/pass them on if required.
All greatly appreciated!

Also, thanks for beating me to it there C_note, appreciate your helpful answer :)
C_note is correct - we are not in any way related to Webbet.com, nor Mini Vegas. We are a wholly independent company and entirely separate from either of them.

Thanks for the comments

C_note noted some interesting similarities between MiniVegas and OldChicago. Similarities include:

1. The source code for the Old Chicago home page is remarkably similar to the source code for Grand Hotel (part of MiniVegas). It looks like the code was cut and pasted, as a template, then the relevant names were changed. It even contains identical programmer's comments in Italian. For example, after the last div the programmer writes "Chiude container generale" (means closes general container).

2. Old Chicago is IP address 209.47.15.230 . The MiniVegas group is in the same IP address block at 209.47.15.235+

3. Emails headers from old Chicago match email headers from the MiniVegas group.

4. Portions of the T&C used by Old Chicago match word-for-word with the MiniVegas group. A Google search does not show any other MG casinos using these phrases, only Old Chicago and MiniVegas.

5. Grand Hotel uses unique game weightings for their bonus, including 10% weightings on BJ, VP, and roulette. I believe only one other MG group uses these weightings -- MiniVegas.

Are you sure that there is no connection to MiniVegas? Perhaps some resources are shared between the two groups, but they are operated fully independently?

free 7 pounds and the chances of winning


i was awarded 7 pounds and initially did quite well with my gaming but after an hour of play just when i was eligible to withdraw i had another 7 pounds "mistakenly" credited therefore doubling my wager requirement and of course no phone number to contact them and i had to wait on an email getting to them and when this happened it took 3 emails to even get any sort of sense, i have been told they are looking at it now and will get back to me so watch this space and ill let you know

I received a response from the manager where he declair that ist possible to use MB to withdraw becasue this method in unavailable to Italy and he told me to choose another method between credit card, neteller, click2pay, cheque, wire transfer and ecocard...i asked to process the cashout before in my credi card and if isn't possible to use click2pay...stay tuned :cool:

Frank, would you care to respond to the similarities between Old Chicago and MiniVegas as mentioned a few posts above?

It would also be nice for you to answer the earlier question as to whether you will pull the same rogue tactic as MiniVegas of saying on your website you offer Neteller withdrawals but instead sending checks.

Simply leaving these questions unanswered as you have at this point does not at all help your casino's credibility.


P.S. I am amused you chose "Old Chicago" as your casino name, but don't allow Americans.
