Let's see,

I don't love any Playtech casino, but to be honest, I've never had any withdrawal issue (in the fews I've won :rolleyes:).

They have good slots (Lotto madness, A Night Out, Doctor Lovemore, etc.) and they have full customer support in spanish (I've only found it on Playtech casinos, not in MG, RTG, etc.) Bonus system and loyalty program is better than MG and RTG by far (very often 100% deposit bonus with 8-10 WR).

Bad things for me is, first of all, find a good/fair Playtech casino (I've tried a good number ot them but I've only won something in "Europa", "EuroGrand" and "Bellini"). Other problem for me is the long withdrawal pending period (4 days or more).

I've played at Vegas Red, Tropez, Bellini and Cameo.
Won a few times in Vegas Red, Tropez, and Bellini, and haven't had any issues withdrawing. They do seem to let you win a bit the first couple of times you deposit, and then just go icecold....at least for me.
I ususally deposit at Bellini (first monthly deposit is $97 and they give you a $103 bonus), and just play their slots, and Tropez every sunday, where they have a 100% bonus.
One of the above won't see me again tho....Cameo ... their slots are DEAD ! And I'm not just talking skindead...totally and completely dead for me !
Only thing that REALLY pisses me off, is the 15 X wagering requirements for me, because I committed the crime of being from Denmark ?!?!? (I know it's even worse for british, and some other countries ... wtf is up with that anyway?) I've discussed this with their support people again and again...it's just not fair that most people have 8 wagering requirements, and mine is double that, when I'm only playing slots.

Edited for spelling ... omg, I shouldn't post when I just get out of bed, and can't see :)

cameo and tropez and tilia only prob is i have never withdrew from any of them
And cameo has a terrible habit after you take a bonus few rounds in you hit something live chat comes on trying to get you to take another bonus out while your playing. It never ends they just keep saying add more money in and this time will be 200 % bonus. So ive stopped playing there but i do miss my bonus bears

Well...they all do have that nasty habbit of interrupting during play, with their shitty advertisements....very annoying, I agree.
I forgot to mention in my previous post, that this guy from Cameo called and woke me up, very late at night, to tell me he gave me a free $10 bonus ... basicly told him to go piss up a rope.
Do NOT call me....especially not when I'm sleeping....minimum price for doing that is $500 !

Do they just advertise bonuses for the casino you're playing at, or do they advertise them for sister casinos too?

They advertise their own bonuses, and beg you to refer your friends...and ask you to play their progressive jackpot slots. Ususally 3-4 windows pop up in a row, and then you won't see them for a while, and they start over.
I've had staff interrupt my play, and advertise sister casinos too ... it's really annoying, but seems to be less lately.

IMO, the ones tied to sportsbooks: Bet365, Mansion, Centrebet, BetFred, etc are by far the best, most reliable and reputable.

I can't stand Golden Palace because of their advertising antics (especially the Olympics nonsense from awhile back that Meister has detailed).

Indio, African Palace, and Maxima (now Class1) have long histories of being awful.

Turn right, then right. then right again
I have gone off Playtech.

I logged in to Cameo last night to use the $10 some fool from god-knows-where called me to inform me about at 10pm :mad: ...and this is what I got before I even got to my first spin:

Perch: Hi there! This is Perch from Online Support! How are you doing?

Perch: I have an offer for you,would you like to know that?

Perch: I am pleased to inform you that you're eligible to get 50% up to 200 bonus if you will make a deposit right now.

Perch: Do you want to take advantage to this offer? I will be more than happy to assist you with your deposit.

Perch: I suggest you to take advantage of the offer while it is VALID
Perch: Why not make a deposit now?
Perch: I am so excited to let you know that Beach Life jackpot is 2.4 million!

Perch: Who knows if you are lucky today and win the jackpot prize!:)

Player17: I am not able to at present, but I will let you know.

Perch: Please let me know if you're interested with my offer or if you need my assistance in making your deposit.

Believe it or not, it went on and on until I just blew the $10 asap and logged out.

It makes then look terribly desperate and its a BIG turn-off.

I have seen 50x for UK at one Playtech, slots too, and non-cashable. At this level it is a joke, 15x does at least offer a chance. I fail to see how they can claim some countries are "better" at SLOTS than others, unless of course, they are not random as they claim, but work like UK "slots" (Fruit Machines), which would explain why the Brits now outrank the Danes as the smartest slots players on the planet.

Oddly enough, only MG and Crypto have "Fruit Machines", and they don't seem to be afraid of Brits playing the same WR terms as everyone else.

I mostly play MG, especially now most have the EZBonus system, and have not touched a single Playtech so far this year.

Hi, Cesar! Why don't you try bet365? The best Playtech casino IMO. Their w/ds are very fast (12hrs on Moneybookers, and one day or so - on my CC):thumbsup:

I am playing at Europa Casino, Bellini (here I am VIP Silver), 5 x Wag. req. for the bonus.
I like the slots esp. Fruit Mania and Wall Street Fever, the payouts are better than in MG, RTG or Rival Casinos.
Support is very well and it is in my own language.

The only bad things are, the long pending time for the withdrawals and that all Bonuses will removed from the account if you withdraw.

I love one--and only one so far--Playtech house

Totesport, for a variety of reasons, which I'll go into if any asks...they'd be just about perfect if they accepted at least one e-wallet.

Most of my other faves are MG, because I can't live without the autoplay feature (especially with the optimal strategy built in).

Play smart and Play safe.

Bet365 and Totesport are the cream of the crop

Hey Slotmonster...

Check out Totesport...a Bet-365 work-alike but WITH a fabulous (Dep 500 to get Bonus 300 auto-deposited the second you meet WR)...and you know from Bet365 just how good the comps program is at tracking your wagering.

And they also have nice regular solid reload bonuses (starting with 50% to 50 on first dep of month)...and simple terms...all allowable games (including all BJ and VP--and all "doubling" and "doubling-halfs" count too) fully weighted.

Only downside is that TS doesn't use a decent e-wallet...but I love them enough for the play-quality and the reg-bonuses and the comps that I overlook that big blemish.

(I also loved Bet365--even without the ongoing bonuses--for the same reasons...but then they put my innocuous little country on their "crappy terms" list...so I had to find another decently run PT casino--and that's not easy...lots of them have a predatory feel about them--just thinking about CasinoBlasters gives me the creeps.)

By my reckoning the two best are Bet365 and Totesport, and most would favor one over the other, depending on what's most important to you...quick convenient payouts, Bet 365 rules...great startup and ongoing bonuses, Totesport. And since they're not group mates you can enjoy them both.

So, with Totesport, you'd feel just like you were playing at Bet365, but with a nice bonus wad...and more hassle getting it back--but much less than I'd have imagined...my Visa card DID accept the cashin.

Onward,

Onward,

Thank you for this info, fitguy67, but I think it's useless for me for three reasons:
1. Players from my country are not eligible to receive bonuses at Totesport.
2. I don't use bonuses. I used to do it but now I play only with my own money.
3. I've already found two casinos in which I can play with safe and in which I will always get paid - bet365 and Betvoyager.

Don't like any Playtech...

They used to be OK pre UGIEA, but it seems to me after UGIEA Playtech management decided to take the low road after leaving the States.

cant you just leave the chat window open and drag it to the bottom of the screen, it feels a bit rude ignoring them but at least they get the message

Casino del Rio

I am playing only Playtech Casinos, because i like their slots and video poker. My favorite is Casino del Rio. Never had any bad experience there and the customer support is extremely friendly. Recently I made a nice cashout there after a reckless doubling session in "Jacks or better" and it all went smoothly. The only negative thing is the pending period of 4 business days. A few times it happened that i cancelled a withdrawal and lost. Apart from that, I think that Casino del Rio is absolutely recommendable and if things dont change I will continue to play there.

Cheers Balky
