Had a look but for some reason it does not give me confidence to register:

1. Registered in Costa Rica - raised a red flag for me, very weak jurisdiction
OTOBET is a trademark created by Repus Apud SA, a joint-stock company incorporated under the laws of Costa Rica. REPUS APUD SOCIEDAD ANONIMA, registered under the number: 3-101-423689, San Jose, Mata Redonda, Avenida 4 Calle 80 Casa 204, from Canal Siete two hundred meters west and fifty meters south, P.BOX: 9-2400, REPUBLIC OF COSTA RICA
2. Very small selection of games - something like 20 slots only!!! :what: :confused: A normal casino has 500+, Videoslots has 1100+

3. List of Winners - looks like a loop of the same winners. :eek: If you look at it for about 2-3 minutes you can see the same names and winning amounts repeating

4. No Net-ent/MG slots - so pretty much a No Go for me :rolleyes:

Could probably come up with some more things but these above are enough for me not to register.

In no way i am saying though that they are a casino to avoid, the statement is just my personal judgement.

I agree with harry, and i think you may be lucky you got paid.. also took a look (would remove the link btw) and that license is nothing worth mentioning on any site really. The 25,- NDB is of course tempting, especially on Novomatic games, (@harry: there are quite a few smaller sites out there with limited selection, they do also seem to be more of a sports-book and Binary trading crap) but i don't really trust it.

The only thing that looked cool for a second was their "new" slot "The Hobbit" which has a little resembance to the ever so popular, no longer available LOTR from MG, but this is a 5 liner with abysmal payouts and a silly bonus game, or so it seems:
Tested it out in freeplay, and collected 5 dragons for a bonus game that paid out 20 coins, which is exactly one bet.

Then i checked the paytable, and found "max win is 20" and stuff like "games pay superjackpot, be the king of superjackpot"
and at that point i was convinced i was wasting my time :p But nevertheless checked those novo's too and found them to be the cheap version, at best, or the "fake" version at worst. Would stay well clear, but that's just me of course.

EDIT: i see whilst posting Casinomeister already removed the link ;p

I'm concerned if these are ripped off versions of legitimate games. If so, this is being run by probably an organized crime syndicate. There is no such thing as a gaming license from Costa Rica - and the "US" office is a registration office for businesses. This company has no real land based presence.

I do not believe that Novomatic would allow its games to be played by US players on Costa Rica servers. It's been brought up before in this forum, and I am sure the answer lies somewhere here.

If so, it's a fast-track into the rogue section.

I would avoid it until we get an official answer. I wouldn't want to dis them if they are indeed legit.

You can even did not wait reply Bryan. It is faked games, i played with NDB once there, not need to be clever to understand that it is absolutely, terrible done fake of novomatic.
True, but it's always good to hear it from the horse's mouth. :D

It's one thing for me to make a claim based on my observances - it's better when these claims are confirmed by the owner of the software.

It's a classic confidence trick mate.

They WILL pay those whom have won with the NDB a 25euro Skrill payment. A great investment for them if you then go on to deposit hundreds of euros and lose all the while believing you will be paid if you win.

And then, if you win - read Bryan's link above.

But thanks for that free 50e anyways :D

Sorry for potentially stupid question, but how do you know the Novomatic games there are fake? I honestly don't see the difference between those in Casino Atlanta and those in, let's say, Quasar Gaming. Not that I analyzed every tiny detail, nevertheless I'm curious to know how you can spot the fakes. Is it simply due to their licence / the fact that they allow US players e.t.c.?

I loaded book of ra on freeplay and it could not be much more different :p

Different colours, pictures, sounds, effects all mixed up. Such a poor copy - on this Oto place anyway

Exactly same thinkings when played at Futurity and Atlanta, both providing also that ''copied'' novomatic games, bad graphis, and the reels are spinning very weird, and sometimes bit unfair looking. never put real money in there since im scared i get issue's with them;( but otobet also have these copied games! pretty fast u got your withdrawal:O
