That's incredible news. We had no idea ⬆️⬆️⬆️

Yes, it is! And seems like their thing to stand out is going to be providing the slots with the highest RTP. I think this is a unique approach because at the moment everyone's out there is looking forward to setting them at the shittest % possible. Now you must deposit £500 to make your evening last as it used with a £50 deposit a few years back. It basically seems like we have to pay to be able to play in a casino without worrying about any winnings. This casino I mentioned is in the development stage as i can see they're connecting more game providers and making the rest of things fully functioning.

Here is a set of providers, which i guess is the easiest to connect:

I personally never played on a crypto casino because I simply do not need it. For me is ok to deposit some 500 in Betfred, enrich Freddy and then go to sleep like a real loser after playing some games that I've never seen before, lol. Had a phone call recently from one of them whose English was 10 times worse than mine, and he asked me if I'm OK with gambling. In a nutshell, i said, no worry about me, I'm fine and he unlocked my acc., lol.

You can almost imagine the trailer

"In a World, where one man faced software providers no one's heard of"

Trust Evolution to stand out like a giant - it's almost as if their brand is synonymous with cup 'o' cocoa clipjoints :p

....but that's for another thread

Wrong on many levels. A line up of 2nd and 3rd tier providers who will sign up anyone with a website. Plus Evolution. Quality wise, we are only one step up from Rival and RTG.

Not sure why the excitement about max RTP, either. I could go and play on any number of Crypto casinos at Max RTP right now.

Agree and my own experience with offshore "Not regulated" casinos earlier this year was a positive experience - cant say it was not. Crypto more expensive to D & W - but sometimes I sat on the currency and it moved upwards and ended up making profit on profit albeit small one but covered fees.

Im not recommending this as such - but love them or hate them - certain so called "clip joints" are giving an experience which is now light years ahead of the UK. Many will move to offshore in the coming months and year. As said in another thread its not without risk - you have zero back up if things go wrong - and god help ye if you hit a whopper as they could just refuse to pay and nothing you could do about it. But tracking certain threads of reddit etc you can get an upto date feel of whats good and whats not. But yeah it was good for while it lasted no complaints at all.

Yeah, there are a lot of clip joints and the main problem with these is the fact that they are run by inexperienced people that don't understand fully their customer needs, and if a problem arises they're unable to sort it out. And this is how they turn into rogue. But, there are good casinos too with modernly built sites and a lot of games, no KYC and fast payouts -- exactly what the online player needs. However, for the majority of players cryptocurrency is still something wild and mysterious. But, i guess soon this sensation will disappear. Years ago people were thinking WTF an e-wallet is and never trusted to use one, now it's just a part of everyone's life. The same will be with crypto wallets.

Never checked TBH and thought they all run at the lowest as no one tells them what to do.
No, all the main ones are at max otherwise what would be the point. One of the main reasons for heading over there is to escape lowered RTPs.

It seems to me that when we talk about rogue casinos we can now include UK casinos in that category, because I've completely lost all trust in the UK market.
I would go one step further than just blaming lower RTPs, because there are other changes being made to the games by the crooks, sorry, I meant to say developers, that are far more insidious. Used to play a lot of Book of Oz, then stopped because it started playing worse, but have just recently gone back to have a look again. Now, whereas I used to get a reasonably regular £7.50 (at 10p a spin) 5 major symbol win, and the odd £50 5 wizard win, they have completely disappeared, no matter how long you play for. Zip, zilch, nada, it doesn't happen anymore.
The same thing has happened at another of my previously stable games, Dragon Shard. Literally overnight it completely changed the way it played, with Epic and Legendary wins seemingly disappearing from the game, and don't even get me started on the dramatic increase in dead spins on all games I play.
It's almost reached the stage where I'm grateful to get my stake back on a spin!
I now rate casino operators, game developers and even the UKGC, in the same bracket as online scammers. I include the UKGC on there because at best they are responsible for all of this rubbish, at worst they're in on the entire scam, because their job is to protect us from crooks, not allow them to openly and blatantly rip us off on a daily basis. This industry simply can't be regulated anymore, otherwise how could they get away with it.
RIP UK online casinos, it was nice knowing you.

I bet crypto casino owners skim through such CM threads and write down all negative and positive into their note pads, lol.
But my guess regarding UKGC is that they want to get rid of all smaller casino operators and leave only high street bookie brands for all online gambling needs. But i might be wrong, of course.
