Hey it's under BetRev, Jon Jon's affiliate. I doubt that the casino could be as bad as said as Jon Jon used to be here giving help and etc with his other 2 Casinos there. GiantVegas and 1 more... can't really remember.

Perhaps I should try and then give a report on it... Hmmm... When I have the money, I will :p

Aodat, I hope you meant that to be taken with a massive pinch of salt.

Jon Jon claimed to have ended his association with BetRev after his failure to broker a settlement for the Giant Vegas player, according to his last comments in the Giant Vegas thread:

Note clause in bold:

Casino Policy on Bonus Abuse

We stress that bonuses are designed to offer players an opportunity to look around the Casino and try a variety of games without fear of risking their own money on games that they are not familiar with. The bonuses are not intended to attract casual players who are looking to exploit this offer for their immediate financial gain. If for any reason whatsoever, upon such review, it appears that player/s are participating in strategies that the Casino in its sole discretion deems to be abusive, the Casino reserves the right to revoke the entitlement of such player to the promotion.

Furthermore, if upon such review, the players' practices have been deemed to be 'Promotion Abuse', the Casino Management has the right to take the following actions, at its sole discretion, against such abusers: All winnings on any account/s opened will be null and void and all cash-ins will be cancelled where play has been deemed abusive. Abusing Player accounts may be terminated with immediate effect. Players found to be abusing promotions may be barred from receiving further promotional offers at the Casino. In the event of a dispute, all decisions made by the Casino will be final.

I highly recommend going NOWHERE near this casino. Aside from the above extraordinarily unacceptable terms, the Giant Vegas affiliation is reason enough.

I believe the other one is Royal Dice.


... my old stomping grounds. :rolleyes:


I have a question. I seem to recall Royal Dice Casino and Magic Box Casino (and if I'm not mistaken, Swiss Casino + Casino Las Vegas) all being under the same roof at one time? That is... let's say about 3 years ago. I may be wrong on this one, but everytime I used to download the software, I'd get other pop-ups/portals leading me to these other sites.

Yep JohnSteed, you are right. Magic Box, Swiss, Casino Las Vegas, Casino King and Royal Dice were all part of the IOG group of casinos. Good memory!!

Innocent unless proven guilty. With so many complaints against playtech casinos, maybe it should be the other way round. Instead of Caruso's nightmare list, maybe a dream list of playtech casinos including acropolis, kiwi etc. will help. It's not that the accredited playtech casinos are not up to it but since Bryan only started accepting them back a couple of months ago,the list may not be comprehensive.

Good point Chuchu. I'll leave that to someone else as I'm not really clear on who is okay besides Kiwi and Mainstreet Group.

$50 min deposit and a matchplay signup maxed at $300 with a W/T of x20 (x40 on some games) D+B. This is a subjective opinion, but the site has a rather cold feel to it.

I wonder what happened to Giant Vegas's litigation against RTG, btw - that seems to have dropped off the radar.

The T&Cs are enough to scare any player away imo - it suggests that this is the sort of establishment where an arbitrary decision on whether a player is a bonus *abuser* or not will be made regardless of whether he or she has respected the T&Cs, and that such a classification will result in immediate winnings and bonus confiscation and banning.

Who needs to take that risk?

This Australian operator has been in this business long enough to know perfectly well that the correct and fair procedure to follow in alleged *abuse* cases is to pay out what has been promised to the player who has accepted an offer and complied with the T&Cs. Only after that has been done should the account be locked or the player removed from the promo lists.

Not before sufficiently badmouthing the player in question so as to prejudice any settlement and public opinion of the case.

Interestingly although he claimed to have ended his relationship with these shoddy casinos they're still promoted loud and proud via his affiliate management site. They have some good bedfellows too- he also lists Cirrus, Cool Cat and Palace of Chance as clients!

Contender for rogue affiliate manager?
