    I may as well spill the beans, Rival is shutting down to Canadian players, I have known this for a couple weeks but decided to keep it quiet until a formal posting, I just read an email from Mayan Fortune so it is now fair game. It looks like we have a month or two to finish up.

    I received my emails today from sloto and a few other rivals of their closure.
    Sloto was the only rival i enjoyed playing at and was the only rival i had a cashout from. After playboy leaving us and hearing now mg are banning american players i wonder if we are next.
    Interesting enough a few months back this nice little gift came in the mail from a mg casino. Learning that the mailing address for the parcel was just around the corner i had a look as i drove that way later that week. This mg casino had 3 floors in this office building, they are no longer there now so im wondering if canadian players will be next unable to play. That just leaves us with rtg and intercasino and playtech. Playtech i have never had a cashout i just find their auto bonus terms impossible to meet before you bust.

    Lauram,

    No offence, but it seems that you are playing at the wrong Playtech casinos. I wouldnt play at those who gave me an auto bonus and even if they did, the accredited ones would galdly remove them on request. If you dont already have accounts at them, try Betfred and Bet365. They are very good imo.

    Thanks chuchu interesting enough i have tried most of the other playtechs. I wont mention them as it only seems to give them extra credit when their names appear in a post. I will try those 2 this week i do believe long ago i tried betfred but i will look into that and try them again. I just got tired of depositing and before i knew it i had a bonus added i never wanted at least at rival you had a choice to take one out or not. Now with the 2 you mentioned do they have those pop up boxes appear as your playing asking for more deposit money. That was the other factor that drove me away from this group.

    Lauram,

    I havent played Playtech for more than a year now since the Playtech platform does not accept Hong Kong players. However, when I was playing there, the 2 playtechs I mentioned didnt ask for more depositing money in Real Play. In Fun play, I understand many playtechs set up those annoying boxes and tell you its your lucky day and ask you for your deposits.

    The other good thing about the 2 playtechs I mentioned is that they have quite responsive reps in this forum and if anything goes wrong, they are readily available for assistance.

    Hi there,

    After you create your account and once logged in to the casino lobby, over on the right hand side you will see a large yellow "@". Click this and you will go directly to our support team (24 hours a day) and simply request that they mark your account 'no bonuses'.

    Failing that, drop me your username (private message please!) and I will see to it personally.

    Hope to see you at the tables soon!

    Kind Regards, Ian.

    Actually i rarely play at Playtechs for the LACK of decent bonuses. I get them almost daily from my regular mg casinos, betfred of which i am a member of i get very few and even when their are bonuses on offer, their usually quite poor. :what:

    Warning

    I am going to put out a warning on Rival Casinos.

    There is one Rival Casino, that has keeps delaying a payment to me. this has gone on now for over two months...
    And I don't live in Canada.

    The casino will remain nameless for now, because I am still trying to get my money from them... but it is a Rival.

    Hmmm,
    2 months is far too long. Dont want to press you but naming them might just have the desired effect. If they have delayed it for so long why do you think they will pay even if you keep silent about it.

    Nevertheless, I hope you get your money. And the Rival, if its reading this, pay the player now and try to halt the slide towards roguedom.

    I am going to give them till everyone returns from London, next week sometime.
    At that time, if I still have not received my money I will file a PAB with Bryan and Max and follow their advice. They are the experts when it comes to collecting from casinos like these.

    I should also clarify, this is not a player payment, it is a affiliate payment that is owed. But a delayed payment is still a delayed payment.

    Also, chances are that if they won't/can't pay a business associate, there are going to be problems paying the players. seen it happen before, several times.

    If this is an affiliate payment then its probably even worse. Unless they have solid reasons for not paying, then its back to what we experienced last year ie they are not flush with cash and probably when they insist on the 5-day processing period for withdrawals. I hope I am wrong but unless they revert back to paying within 48 hours to players and reasonable time frames for affiliates, then the signs are not looking good.

    This seems all back to front to me, banning Canadian players, but still seeming to allow AMERICAN players despite it being "very illegal" to make transactions in the US, whereas in Canada there are no such clear impediments to transacting, and only unenforced rules against online gambling.

    There has to be more to this than meets the eye. Are these Rivals licenced in Kahnawake by any chance?

    Gotta dispute that.
    Only illegal to make transfers of gambling funds on Sports Bets.

    Sports Betting is the ONLY form of gambling that is made illegal by US Federal Law.

    Lots0, I know you don't want to mention the Rival Casino's name that is in question here, BUT...it could save countless players the grief and maybe even the loss of thousands of dollars that they could also experience by continuing to deposit there. By going ahead and naming them would benefit thousands of other players in my opinion. For whatever reason they are withholding funds and not paying you is not only a bad sign of a more serious issue here but also could reflect other factors regarding this operation.

    I too promote all of the Rival Casinos and I certainly don't like to hear issues like this brought up. It not only looks bad on the Casino in question but us as affiliates as well for promoting them.
