    I have been told that Shark Casino may not be the best place to deposit my money due to bad experiences in the past. Anyways I downloaded and installed the software to play in fun mode because I am kind of watching the play in several RTG casinos to see if anything fishy is happening with the software. This casino is the only one I have seen do this. When you try and increase your balance in fun mode it will not allow it and now has a message that says "We have eliminated the Fun Money replenishment to make the online gambling experience more life like. Enjoy the casino." So I talked to live Chat support and they said that to increase the fun balance you have to make a deposit and they will increase the fun balance 100x whatever I deposit in real money mode. What BS. I certainly don't want to play there now.

    Shark is the new look for Angelciti. For some inexplicable reason they've now locked me out - after a very positive end to that dispute last year.

    I suppose those two excellent trouble-shooters have now gone on their way and they've left the monkeys back in charge.

    If my memory serves me correctly:
    Angelciti had 6 or 7 casinos about a year ago. Of which Welcome To My Casino was one.
    When Angelciti (AGEL.OB) became listed OTC it becan to drop all the sister casinos. When you attempted to play at one casino, you were directed to Shark.
    I had a friend at Welcome who trully helped me, if and when I needed help. At the time Welcome paid within 10 minutes. Off hand I can't remember the name of the woman who was Manager at the time.
    Since all they have now is Shark and Blackjack doesn't have any bonus offers, I haven't played there.
    Also, just for the hell of it I typed You must register/login in order to see the link., in my address bar and guess what came up?
    PALACE OF CHANCE!!!
    Now why would that be?
    I don't know if this info helped anyone but all I wanted to do is relate my past experiences with the OLD Angelciti.
    As I said...I don't what they're like now but, in the past they were always good to me.

    I have all these people saying stay away, and their fun mode restrictions are strange. But I have talked to many people that have had really good experiences with them despite the bad reports. I think I will give them a try. Everyone I talk to says they were paid within one day even with a bonus claim. It seems that Shark may be one to add to the good RTG list. I will post my experience after depositing and playing.

    After reading many times about Shark Casino (from different forum)
    I have to say,

    This is interesting:
    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    "Our Obligation

    SharkCasino.com uses Real Time Gaming software (RTG), which is in accordance with the standards set by SafeBet, the only true regulator of online casinos. In addition, Real Time Gaming’s Random Number Generator has been tested and approved by software engineers from Princeton University, guaranteeing you absolute fairness in every game."

    Yep, we know what is Safebet.org

    Or do we?

    Press that link, in their site. And :eek: :D

    "SafeBet.org

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

    Remember you can always trust safebet.org standards! :D
    NOT!!!!!!

    Their CS, Manager, etc, fail to answer about this link and about Safebet.org questions

    (btw i didn't find safebet text anymore from casinomeister Evil-section,
    but you find with search option, in "Evil"/Rogue-section

    Played BJ. I think that shark casino is a "safe bet" even though they do not update their website after several months. They are too busy paying their players the same day.

    Any casino website that still refers itself to a "Safebet" approved site should be avoided like the mad cow disease.

    #1 reason: Safebet was always a "fake" watchdog organization set up by the software company to give their licensees credence.

    #2 reason: The casinos that posted this logo were knowingly aware that this was a ruse to trick the players into thinking that there was something "safe" about the casino.

    #3 reason: Safebet was ineffective in solving most ANY player problem.

    #4 reason: RTG let the domain name ownership lapse sometime last year (purposely), and it was picked up by a webmaster you runs a forum from there. I guess he hopes to pick up on the traffic that still trickles in from some of these RTG sites. Any casino that still refers to this is a) too damn lazy to remove the deceptive statements or b) hopes that the "Safebet" statements add credence to their operation.

    You be the judge.

    Shark

    According to Shark casino, I am a "Bonus Hunter". Because my total received bonuses is 34% higher than my non-bonus deposits, I have been labeled an abuser.

    Isn't that just nice.

    They want you to vote for them and do all kinds of promos but obviously they don't expect you to take advantage of them. Oh yeah... and they NEVER expect you to cash out.

    My play has not changed in the 3 months I've been a Shark member. I have made non-bonus deposits during the week all through this three months (if you play there you know their promos are only on the weekends) and have used their coupon codes on the weekends. You know, those coupons for "their loyal players".

    However, recently I had a good streak and within a matter of 2 weeks cashed out twice, once for $90 and once for $200.

    Amazingly all of a sudden I'm unable to redeem bonus coupons. They "Say" it's not because I won but that's funny because I was in the same 34% arrears PRIOR to winning that I am in now and I was able to use coupons up until the $200 cash-out. This is the first coupon I've tried to redeem since that time (note that I have made a non-coupon deposit since then but of course that's OK!). Just a coincidence? I don't think so.

    Also, am I the only one to notice that their playthrough requirements are higher than they used to be? Everything I remember was 15X. Even their terms & conditions state 15X. Now it's 18X in their newsletter. Hmmmm. What's going on here?

    I was always very happy with this casino. I enjoyed the play and they paid fast. I played during the week without bonuses, I played on the weekends with bonuses, I took advantage of those things that ALL OF US are here for. Now I'm a Bonus Hunter. Unbelievable.

    Watch your bonuses with this casino and hope you don't win too much. They may pay fast but they hate it.

    Technical error? Funny, this is what's on their website in the General Terms & Conditions:

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that we changed the set up of our fun money. The fun money play is set to $10,000.00 (ten thousand dollars) for new accounts. If you spend all or want to increase your fun balance we will multiply any real money deposit by 100 and deposit that amount as Fun Money into your fun money account.

    HA!

    Busted. Again.
    :lolup:

    I have good collection about Shark Casino Chat-sessions. And i can send those sessions to their Manager :)Laura Chacon), so she can read, how much they give misleading information, how much their site keep misleading information (or fake), and/or about fake safebet.org link/info (from their own security site)

    And here's Chacon's latest response - the players have prevailed it would appear!

    QUOTE:We have corrected the error in the website as well. If you download the casino you will see that people are able to replenish fun money automatically.
    We are deeply sorry for this confusion.
    I hope you can accept our sincere apologize.UNQUOTE

    That makes no sense. When I went into the cashier in fun play it clearly stated that to make the online gaming experience more realistic they have removed fun mode replenishment. So I talked to the live support and they said the same thing. It was explained to me that they will increase fun balance 100x whatever I deposit in real play. Technical error? I think not! They have changed it now though as of today when I went in.

    I very much doubt that this was any sort of "technical" fault - they probably just thought they could get away with this one!
