Recent Casino Experiences (WARNING: long.)

Seems nowadays free spins with no wagering requirement is something casinos brag about.

I took a 10 month break from online gambling this year and only recently came back for a little while. I intend to take another long break and concentrate on poker.

But here's some notes I made on the various casinos I visited over the last month.
I usually browse over the accredited list and sign up through CM's links. ;)

Place has gone downhill in terms of promotions.
They used to offer 100% bonuses at 30xB but now it seems they only offer 5%-10% bonuses with some ridiculous playthrough.
Their comp points were wager free but now that's changed as well.
Going back about 7-8 years ago All Slots were extremely competitive in terms of promotions.
Could be that they have changed ownership, there's little reason for anyone to deposit here now.

I never took their SUB originally, but decided to take them up on an offer which seemed reasonable. Bonus rules are pretty harsh and 32Red have had long enough to change the rules but still haven't. I doubt the hash rules at Roxy Palace will ever change.
Turned out there was a problem. See:
Luckily Mark solved it. :thumbsup:

I won't play at Nedplay and Dash because I was bonus banned (for mostly playing slots.) :rolleyes:
But ever since they halved the value of their bonuses there's little reason for me to play at 32Red & Golden Lounge as I can easily find casinos that offer 100%-200% deposit bonuses with reasonable terms. These casinos might not be as safe as 32Red but I'm willing to take that risk.

Video Slots Logo.jpg
Very stereotypical stuff; free spins weren't credited and I took some advice from a forum member and followed it up with the rep and got no reply.
It's not worth chasing imo.
That's another problem with Video Slots, their prizes are so minuscule, if there's a problem it's not even worth chasing it up.

Also, I noticed that they removed the game with the lowest HE "Microgaming Single Deck Classic Blackjack."
My guess is that someone won a few K on this game and it put a bad taste in management's mouth.

I just don't get all they hype and fanfare about this place. If I ever wanted to make a flat deposit, with next to no chance of winning, I'd consider depositing at VS but not until then...

Be careful with Bonuses!
It is  crucial  that you understand and agree to the terms and conditions of any bonus that you accept. Most of the complaints that come through our arbitration service are bonus related; it would be safe to say that there are tens of thousands of players who have never complained because they realized after the fact that they did not understand or had never read the terms. Nothing in a casino is free – so whenever you see “free” being used, there are stipulations. It is important for you to understand that.

Please check out our Bonus Section that lists the offers given by our Accredited Casinos. No deposit bonuses, welcome bonuses (AKA sign up bonuses [SUBs]), exclusive bonuses, reload bonuses, free spin bonuses...all this and more!

They have a stereotypical "spirit of the bonus" term. I asked support at Casumo and they said that term only applies to people who create multiple accounts. But, that's just it, why not just say "don't make multiple accounts" it just doesn't make sense to have that spirit of the bonus term.

And another thing about this casino; the staff act like children and I didn't find it entertaining; I found it bizarre. It seems that this is a current trend at some online casinos.

My country got banned while I was in the middle of playing!
I noticed some time later that they even restricted their webpage from Australians.

I had a quick look at their bonus and it didn't seem worth it; 50XB is way too high.
(I dropped a line to the rep about that. )

They were using Guts Casino live support. See:

Description says they have Microgaming software. When I went there, I could only see one MG game. The selection of games is very poor, it's mainly NetEnt games and some other obscure slots software. The quality of this casino was shockingly bad. I understand they are pretty new but I think they have had long enough to do something about it.

Another note I made about this casino: they had a term saying that if you decrease your bet after winning, your deposit will be forfeit. (Yes, that rule.)
I questioned live chat about this and they told me to disregard it. Why have that rule in the first place when they are telling customers to disregard it?

I started going here for my RTG fix after getting frustrated with iNetbet's lack of customer support.
My experience with CWC has been pretty good, the staff have always impressed me. Although, I can't say much about the RTG software, I kinda feel sorry for Americans who have little choice.
(evil laughter :p)

Slotty Vegas Logo.jpg
Was not happy to say the least.
Firstly, I had no idea that they were a sister casino to BetAt. If I knew that I wouldn't have deposited. It's complicated...
Next time I will read the description on the accredited casinos page and make sure I'm not depositing at a "sister" casino.

I had other problems at Slotty Vegas; namely they had an ambiguous bonus term which cost me about $100. Imo they should pay that not me. But whatever...

Another annoying thing about Slotty Vegas is that they do not allow anyone to close their account.
They are the only casino on the internet that I've come across that do this.
They only allow people to perma-ban themselves, or they offer a take-a-break option for up to 6 weeks.

Why don't they allow people to close their accounts? The most obvious reason is usually the right one. ;)

They also wanted a picture of me holding my birth certificate for verification but rescinded when I said I just don't have a birth certificate.
I'm good but I'm not that good, thanks Slotty. :thumbsup:

Note: Slotty Vegas had a hidden $1.50 AUD deposit fee.

Slotty Vegas was by far the worst experience I had coming back.

Thrills Logo.jpg
This place wasn't too bad actually. Everything was A-ok until I went to withdraw and then I encountered a problem.
They allowed me to deposit with my Visa yet they did not allow me to withdraw with my Visa. Instead, the only option they gave me was to withdraw via bank wire. Which I find to some degree to be deceptive, I would simply expect to be able to withdraw the same way I deposited. I am also still waiting on the withdrawal to hit my bank account, I have been waiting well over a week now.

I also got lots of lag when I was playing at Thrills.

If I had to write a review of casino's mine would be pretty much word for word the same as yours!

Roxy Palace, they send out some decent offers every now and then but bonus rules make them pretty impossible to win from, however you do usually get some decent playtime.

32Red, closed my account a while back.

Videoslots, don't get all the love for them on here. Customer service is terrible at times, also noticed Dan is selective to who he replies to in threads, bonuses aren't good, however being wager free is good, which I suppose is the payoff for them not being great in size.

Casumo, not impressed with support, games always seemed to be a bit laggy for me, but no real complaints.

Guts seem fine, I just don't take bonuses due to the high wagering.

Can't comment on allaustralian, but AllBritish are fine, certainly a wide selection of MG games in the UK. The bonuses aren't very high but the way they work is possibly the best way, if you win before you touch the bonus you can withdraw and forfeit the bonus. However I used the welcome bonus and one more for a whole £7.50, and got bonus banned, probably made 50 deposits there so certainly not a bonus abuser, so worth bearing in mind if you do take bonuses. Also they have a 24 hour pending period for all withdrawals, during which you can't make another deposit without reversing which is annoying as it resets the clock. Also as soon as you login you get the deposit page, no matter how much you have in your balance, change it to go to the games ffs!

SlottyVegas/Betat won't play there after the reps comments in the tournament thread.

Thrills are fine, never had a problem there, although for some reason I don't play regularly.

I'll also add

DrVegas, I would play there if it wasn't for the long running payment problems thread, comes across like they are having money troubles.

Rizk, not had a problem with them, fast withdrawals, games are spot on, never had any lag. However I stopped playing because of the deposit fees, and getting 5 free spins on the wheel about 30 - 40 times in a row.

MrGreen, apart from the odd withdrawal delay, they have been fine. Generous with bonuses if you ask live chat, games all work, and still have the old version of DoA :)

Just would like to add on Videoslots that I do feel appreciated as a low roller. Am a weekly depositor and I often find an additional 10, 15 or 25 fs after I have deposited and played a bit. $5 or $10 tickets to the battle of slots and awards involving higher percentages to the casino race are also in my Rewards section on a regular basis.

I could have been more lucky at VS, but perhaps I should switch games (find myself always returning to Piggy Riches, Thunderstruck I, Ladies Night, Kathmandu and Cloud Quest) and browse through their impressive slots selection a bit more.
