Real Time Gaming casinos

    I am a little naive on these matters, so please forgive me if I am missing something obvious.

    I am just wondering why Real Time Gaming, which has perhaps the best software available, which is fast, sharp and has some very nice games, is associated with so many frankly shoddy outlets.

    It seems to me that this can only be a conscious decision by Real Time Gaming, to accept operators whose standards of probity and business ethics repeatedly fall far short of any honest person's expectation.

    Things seem to be so bad, that the assumption is that a RTG casino is not a good place to play unless you have evidence to the contrary - where for say Microgaming or Wagerworks the player is given reassurance by the operator's name, with RTG it's the reverse.

    I guess it can only be a conscious business decision to go for the bottom of the barrel, and increase profits by working with a large number of shoddy casinos than fewer more reputable ones. This seriously debases the reputation of their fine software, as well as those of the good guys like Bodog. Their dispute resolution system does little to dispel the image as a player-unfriendly site operated by casinos with more sharp practices than a knife factory.

    Again apologies if this a chestnut, but the number of bad or player-unfriendly RTG casinos seems to be far out of proportion to what it should be.

    Not sure it does damage those like bodog. As you said, RTG is one of the most player friendly softwares around and people enjoy playing there. However when you've got such a motley crue of rogues to choose from it is quite easy for a couple (bodog and obviously geisha if the meister agrees to endorse them) to really shine out.

    Its certainly true that it damages the non rogue but non-exceptional ones but the ones people are really confident with probably do well. It'd be good if some adopted it as their marketing slogan "We may be RTG but we're not going to steal your money"

    It is bizarre though that RTG takes so little pride in its work and is happy to deal with such unscrupulous operators for so many of its casinos.

    Yep, there's definately good RTG's out there, just have to find them. I too wish RTG cleaned up their act and had a stricter policy for not allowing the rogues to operate with their software.


    I would definately recommend King Solomons and Geisha lounge (both on the accredited list here btw). I had a 4 day cashout via KS, and a 2 day cashout via GL just recently.

    I agree with everything except the statement about RTG being the best software out there. In my opinion, MG software is in a league of its own, with all of the others trailing way far behind.

    I like RTG because the software is so clean and fast. Its a shame that I rarely play at a RTG casino because of the operators. Crypto is getting a bit slow especially since the new updates this year. MG software is far too bulky imo and sacrifices speed for flashy sounds and graphics.

    If you want to speed up Cryto - just go into 'Settings' and turn off the animations. Then it's real quick - you can even play slots at about 40 spins a minute! :D

    Not that I do that myself mind, I prefer a slower game, and even slow down MG cards when I play there! ;)

    Thx KK, although i was referring more to the loading times for Crypto and how it sucks a lot of resources from the computer.

    I couldn't agree less!
    On my PC at least, Crypto's start up almost instantly and have no effect on other resources.
    I much prefer it over Microgaming, with it's software loading (every time??? :what: ), and which 'takes over' the whole PC - resizing the resolution, and not leaving my toolbar so I can switch between programs... :(

    When you're in the games lounge @ MG, you can go to options and uncheck "full screen". This will let it run in a normal window just like any other program...

    Microgaming is worse. The new version of Crypto is much more demanding resource wise compared to v4 which i really liked. Granted you get turbo mode with the new version but i do prefer my casino software to have more zip (I have several computers and it only runs nicely on my newest PC). Likewise i preferred the old MG (non-Viper) which was even better then v4 of Crypto. Mind you i've been playing for more than 4 years and have seen the changes in the software platforms.

    RTG Operator response

    I thought i would add my 2 cents here as a person who has worked for and played on both MGS and RTG .

    I truly like and enjoy and still play at many MGS Casinos and can tell you that i was rather hesitant to

    A) Join a Group that used RTG software - I joined because i knew and trusted the CEO and he presented me with a fantastic vision that is close to completion

    b) Leave the MGS environment for something completely different

    In that time period we have watched cajoled and harassed RTG into making changes over and above the ones that they have scheduled and i have come to really enjoy playing at the various Casinos.

    They have made major strides in both the software -the look and feel of games and they still have a long way to go.]

    With regards to their selection of operators, they would be the first to acknowledge to you that they made mistakes. What new business does not?
    What i can tell you is that there is a new breed of RTG operator now and they take gaming very seriously. If you want to succeed in this industry one thing above all needs to be followed - Attention to your Players _ It does not matter what software platform you are on ,if you do not look after players they will leave you and you will fail.Like i needed to tell you guys that.

    Dont for one minute think that RTG are the only group to have unscrupulous operators -i know for a fact that MGS has had them in the past. I know, i worked for a group that had a lot of MGS clients.

    Rather then continuing to drag up the past and continually rehash the same old stuff, speak to your RTGs and tell them what you want. If they (the Casino )are any good they will take these requests to RTG and discuss with them the practicality of implementing suggestions. I know that i have picked up some valuable suggestions from the forums with members PMing me and i am in constant touch with them re these changes.

    Just as RTG the software creators rely on us the operators to tell them about changes and needs in the market -we rely on players and others to tell us what they want.

    They will probably not be able to do things immediately but i can tell you that they will and do try incredibly hard to make things work and better.
    RTG is here to stay and will only get bigger and better thanks to players who enjoy the software and i for one am very glad that i have had the opportunity to work with them

    Have a great day guys and may the gods of gambling smile down on you all.

     Hello, Greg. So it will be much more fascinating if RTG leaves some
    casinos like you, for example, including the famed casinos we can find
    here at "Acreddited..." corner.

    The point is, I am seeing and myself experiencing many crappy and
    unacceptable events occuring at casinos totally far away from your
    "accreditted village" and I am wondering why RTG has this kind of
    "black and white difference while "white" guys are really good people
    and "black" guys are helluvalot wreaking unethical havoc here and there
    as you might have seen yourself. RTG should and MUST do hard review
    on these "black" guys otherwise peolple will later think ( or some may have
    thought already ) RTG is the very source of all the unethical conducts
    occuring around.

    I like RTG software very much since it moves quite smoothly. So that is
    why I REALLY hope RTG WIPE OUT possible threat to their reputation
    NOW WITHIN NO TIME otherwise their reputation will be ruined.

    Hi universexf6

    I can tell you that from discussion with RTG they are taking steps.It is not an easy process but examine the facts. Over the last year RTG have picked up a few operators like ourselves and Bodog.The quality of operator has a lot to do with the software.That is where MGS initially had an advantage.That is changing and will continue to change.

    Unethical behaviour exists on all gaming platforms regardless of software.Take a look in the rogue section and you will see a lot of non RTGs

    The only real way to make your point as a player is to not play at a place where you are not appreciated.If you are scammed you have various resources at your disposal such as this forum.

    Today i received another email regarding the RTG software .This is the link

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Now i am not sure who the company is that tested the software and i intend to ask for more details but it does tell me that RTG are very serious about their software and are prepared to let outside parties test it.

    I agree re the software howver i find it preferable and i play all over the place

    Thanks for the feedback at any rate Universe

    Regards
    Greg
