    After looking over all the rogue casinos listed at Casinomeister, I noticed A LOT of them were from Playtech. Should I stay away from all playtech sites just to be safe? Or are there some really good exceptions? Thanks all!

    Absolutely not - though you are quite right to be very cautious.

    Casinomeister lists 9 Accredited Playtechs which are perfectly safe to play at: http://www.casinomeister.com/playtech.php
    These casinos do not follow the mould of the rogues and are as safe as accredited casinos using any other software.
    Pretty sad situation though, that only 9 out of 85+ Playtechs on the net have decent operators.

    I'm sincerely hoping that Bryan's roguing of all those immoral places will FINALLY get Playtech to sit up, smell the coffee, and realise that they simply can NOT treat their players with such contempt. Great software - but a really shitty attitude. :(

    Some of them are not rogue per se, just not recommended because of that progressive jackpot rules.
    However, keep your Playtech play at Omni / Fly Casino, Paddy Power or Bet365 and will be in good hands.

    If you like to play with a bonus Omni/Fly are highly recommended, but those other two are great multi-software sites.

    Good luck!

    Okay - I'll check out the accredited playtech sites now! Geez though, that company really needs to be careful with some of the operators. I think they make up at least 50% of the rogue list lol

    THANK YOU ALL REPLIES!!! :D

    True!

    This issue with the progressive jackpot which noone knows who won, or at what casino it was won is as bad as those terms.

    As others have posted, plenty of decent Playtech sites out there. They are one of the biggest developers in the industry so for every 10 decent sites, there will always be 1 or 2 that don't cut the mustard so to speak. Judge it on a case by case basis though. I think these days you have to have your wits about you wherever you play.

    I wonder why Gala and Coral are not in the accredited list? Have they ever tried?

    In Playtech's case it is more like for every decent site there are 5 to 10 crappy ones. ;)

    Betfred are also on the accredited list but you need to read their terms carefully.The sign up bonus is 'sticky' and having played there in the past,it seems that all the bonuses they offer follow the same pattern.Quite unusual I would have thought for such a huge brand to implement this.

    Try Bet365 as well. They pay pretty fast, and they offer lots of bonuses for their standalone Playtech Download Casino. You don't get lots of offers automatically, but there's a "BONUS TEAM" button and if oyu ask them they often give you 50 or 100% slots match bonuses, especially if you lost your last deposit without taking a bonus.

    Sad but true

    Unfortunately the majority of them are terrible in thier practices, but I have had only good experiences with FLY casino and Boyle casino both are brilliant with their customer service and payouts :D

    I had no idea there were so many rogue playtech operators. I assumed they were pretty solid as almost every UK based operator seems to run playtech games.

    Also bet365 is by far the best option as mentioned above, can't fault them.

    What's not to like about Playtake?

    Apart from the shitty low RTP's of 90-92 on many of their games which decreases average playtime by over 40% compared to 96% slots, apart from allowing casinos to 'disappear' jackpot money, apart from batshit-crazy instalments on jackpots which the customer would need to be immortal to collect (if the casino never mysteriously went 'bust'), apart from some criminal operators, apart from the f*ckwit 96-hour pending many have, apart from them spreading like herpes among all the bookmakers?

    Other than that they're fine.

    I used to play a lot of Playtech games about 18 months back (think I used Eurogrand, Mansion, Supercasino and Winner casinos) and ok, general play didn't yield much in way of RTP, but I used to play for the bonus games and progressives. Did have quite a few big wins (ok, went through a fair bit of cash trying for the bonus) on the Spiderman, Hulk and Iron Man 3 bonus rounds. I also got the progressive bonus round up 4 times resulting in wins of £1800, couple of £300+ and another of about £160. All progressive bonus rounds popped up from £2.50 per spin stakes and mainly on Spiderman. No problems in getting these paid out.

    Ok, in reality these slots weren't great if wanting to play for a lengthy time with minimal loss, but lovely when the bonus rounds popped up as that is where the money is.
