What's your LEAST FAVORITE casino you've ever played at?

I'd be curious to hear people's least favorite casino. The more the information, the better at avoiding certain casino's.

For me personally, THE WORST casino I've been to would have to be InterCasino. Yes, I realize some people would frown upon my saying that. But I've done REALLY bad in my experience playing BJ there, as well as I'm not too crazy about their VP either (and, while I'm no longer sure, I believe that you couldn't double-up there... like Global Player... where's the fun in that?). I don't like their tedious log-in and deposit methods (well, it could be better), the graphics are alright, but aren't up to MicroGaming, PlayTech, or RealTime standards for that matter. And what's with all the constant loading. And while I've heard other people have had wonderful experiences with Ryan and the support team, I can think of many replies that have gone unanswered. I realize some of those rogue casino's would most certainly have to be worse than InterCasino, and perhaps I'm being quite harsh on them, but for the amount of praise it gets from most gaming portals, I tend to feel that it's highly overrated.

I look forward to hearing other people's "Least Favorite" choice.

Thank you for your time.

Yes, I've never read anything positive about that particular casino. This is good to know though. Never mind "phantom bonuses", too many "phantom clauses" as to when they hold your winnings (although I don't know your situation exactly). Thank you for the prompt response (I usually wait a day or so before anybody replies).

The worst by far is 1CNP. Their software is made by Little Jimmy Johnson, grade 3.
Not to mention they are the all time #1 ripoff artists.

I second that. These people are rogues. You wont get paid and the software is also lousy.

Intercasino is the best casino out there by a stretch.

1) The software, in my long experience, is fair.

2) The games are excellent.

and the icing on the cake...

3) They continue to offer monthly freebies to allcomers.

To initiate a thread for the purpose of bad-mouthing an operation like Intercasino is beyond belief.

LMAO. Quality argument.

Hi Caruso, I've enjoyed many of your posts from times past, and I can see what you're saying here. My purpose to initiate this thread was to hear about what casino's people dislike the most, or have had the worst of luck at.

While I did acknowledge that I thought there were worst casino's, I based my opinion on that I can't agree with the high praise that InterCasino has received, based on my on-and-off experiences with them. I think I clearly stated why I didn't care for that particular site, and what's the point in being able to post a thread unless you can't voice your opinion.


I'm independent of any operation, and I don't think it's fair to claim that I started this thread in order to undermine InterCasino (it's just my opinion), rather you could definitely say that I started this thread AND I complained about InterCasino.

You've done well there, and that's super (and I'm not being sarcastic about that). I haven't, and I did incredibly poorly, and I've not had good service (non-replies to queries), and for the record, I've kept going back with my awful track record BECAUSE of the high praise it receives. And each time I've gone back, I get blown-out of the water. Bad luck, yes. Have I only made 1 deposit? No, I've made a few now (in the $100 range), and I've not been over +$10 on any of those deposits after playing, and I do keep records of my game results.


Perhaps I wasn't absolutely clear in my opening statements, but I do think I have enough weight behind what I said. And again, it's just my experience with that casino.

Bit of a wide question really...I'm guessing you mean "worst gameplay experience at a casino" from the opening post. Had loads of them :D Regards the software, i remember uninstalling Gold Circle fast a while back but they're no longer around anyway. Regards treatment of players, then William Hill just about sneaks it for me purely because of an apparent refusal to acknowledge you're a customer - though the Crypto software is the same as IC - v. good.

I agree with the above posters - Intercasino is streets ahead in my opinion.
I admit that the main thing I like is the monthly bonus. I don't know about their support, because I've never had any problems that needed help. That says a lot in itself. I do however agree that their Blackjack is amongst the worst (if not actually the worst) I've ever seen anywhere. :(

The worst casino in my records was called NetGaming.com. I don't know if they still exist, and frankly don't give a rats rear-end if they do or not.
They had a game called Oasis Poker - like Caribbean Stud, except you could pay to swap one or more of your cards before the dealer turned his up. I played about 40-50 hands, and no word of a lie - the dealer qualified EVERY SINGLE TIME! Usually with a pair just big enough to beat my hand. I think I won just 2 hands - when I bought myself flushes. It was the most blatant piece of rigged manure I have ever seen.

in my experience at intercasino, their blackjack is very very streaky, you hid cold streaks of 10+ hands easily, but you also can often win 8-10 hands in a row too, I have won big on a couple of occasions there, but overall not so great. Bossmedia, just sucks, even worse than wagerlogic, RTG is terrible too. At either of the above you would be lucky to see 2 consecutive wins, but 10+ losses is no big deal. Probably the worst of all, as far as games go is Casino On Net, but I do have a grudge against them as they still owe me some cash

WorldWideVegas - are they still around?
Cheating software took me for $1000 when I was a rookie.

Intercasino - I have had some wild streaks - but then it is gambling.
One of the very best.

In retrospect, and considering what many posters are saying, I may have been overly critical about InterCasino. Whiile I have qualms about not wanting to play there again based on my experiences SPECIFICALLY with their blackjack, I haven't really played their other games, which might be quite good.

GrandMaster, you're quite correct in pointing to the list of rogue casino's, but I've always done some research since playing online since '01, as to know which casino's to avoid. I'm not going to deposit money into a casino where I've heard horror stories, so, I just avoid them altogether. I'm basing this on where I've played, and when talking about playing BJ, this is the worst I've done at any casino. And I've played BJ at roughly 130 casino's (almost all the PlayTech's, almost all of the MicroGaming casino's, many RealTime Gaming casino's, a few Cryptologic casino's, and various smaller casino's). And I generally have made multiple deposits at a high percentage of those casino's. Just because I'm new to this post, doesn't mean that I haven't been playing, and playing a lot, based on my low number of postings.

I did take up Destination Poker up on their no deposit bonus (which is something I don't generally do), and got paid $50 after fulfilling and playing above the requirements. While I know their poor reputation, and while I'm likely never to go their again, and I always look at the Rogue List, my experience was a good one, and I did get paid. Would it be better to list Destination Poker as being THE worst gaming experience of my online gaming life, considering that it's a Rogue? When considering my experience playing BJ, the worst game I've ever played time-and-again would be at InterCasino. So, I feel that I should be allowed to voice it.

Hello!

How long time ago did you start playing at İntercasino? Before i liked Intercasino and their cryptologic software. But this month i lost all my games at all cryptologic casinos and the gameplay looked very unfair. I lost 3 hands in bj on every winning hand. It was awful experience. I am afraid that some changes were made to cryptologic sotware and it wont be fair anymore. Hope i am wrong though

Cashed in over $1k on 90 deposit this month. Nothing wrong with Inter, just variance.

I've only been playing there for roughly a year now. But frankly speaking, I've never done well there, so I can't really comment about how the software has changed. All I can say is that THE WORST BJ games I've ever had would have to have been on my last 2 deposits. It's like it refused to let me win two hands in a row, and I went from $100 down to zero in a matter of minutes. I was disgusted, especially because I only increase my bets ONCE I win a hand. I played a safe and patient game, but it didn't matter. When you go down from $100 to about $60 only winning under 10 hands in that frame, you know it's likely purge. And, I was right. It kept playing out the same way, I played basic stategy, kept losing, the dealer kept defying logic and laughing at it with beating my pairs of face cards with only showing a 6. Again, some are lucky, and you can only hope that the software is legitimate.

Although I still rate Intercasino as No.1, I agree that something seems to have changed in the last 2-3 months. Blackjack has been awful at Intercasino for about a year now, but recently seems to have got even worse! I'm struggling with other games too. I sincerely hope I've just been very unlucky, because the other explanation - that they have 'tweaked' the software - is beyond contemplation... :(
Has anyone had a recent look at BJ results there?
Would be interesting to see some logs/stats.
Not much point looking at mine, because I can usually only stand about 30-40 hands of the piss-taking crap before I give up. :(

I have played Intercasino 10 times and had 2 winning sessions
a little below my 29% average overall. I play the monthly bonus
and have noticed streaky results lately.
My absolute worst experience was with Crystal Palace months
ago before I found the Meister and heeded everyones advice in
the Forum.

LOL, So if I said 32red was the worst, WOULD I BE STONED TO NEAR DEATH AND KEPT ALIVE ONLY TO HAVE IT DONE ON A WEEKLY BASIS?....

lol... I dont think I have played at Inter. so I wont say anything about it. Now I have played at 32 red and done reallly bad. I play slots only, but I dont play there anymore. I dont consider this the worst casino, but I can see where you might say that about Inter.

To me the #1 thing we think of is GAMEPLAY when it comes to judging a casino. If we win alot, then its a great casino, even if customer service is less then par. Good example: I loved Wild On casino, (when it was around, and I was the first person to warn everyone when it was going downhill.) I won at Wild ON nearly everytime I played and cashing out wasnt a big deal.
I played at Inet and lost my ass off, and Customer service wasnt the greatest in my opinion. I just talked to 2 different people so I am judging it by these 2 times.
Would I say Wild on was better then Inet, YES. Now to the real ? of this thread, IMO....These are the best, to me, cant say the worst as it would take to much.

Best RTG casino, Casino Extreme....Instant payouts, no real great bonuses, 20% cashback on all deposits w/o a bonus used. Great Customer Service.

Best Micro: Couple of them, (the 2 I play at mostly) Jupiter Club and Wild Jack Casino. Jupiter is alittle lacking in the bonus department, but good gameplay, (winning wise) and great customer service. Wild Jack I just started playing about a couple of weeks ago, but it has been great. I cant say bad about them.

Best Playtech: I DONT PLAY THEM. But Maxima would have my vote
I dont play any other.

Hi JOHNSTEED,
As for me, "Casinofrancenet.com" is not only the WORST but also the MOST STUPID. I recently received an advertising e-mail for a double 100% welcome bonus. I bought 100, played them and lost them. Nothing to say about that: it is a microgaming.
But when I claimed my welcome bonus I was answered that they refused it. I phoned to ask the reason. I was answered that my name was on a list of "bonus greedy players". (In french joueurs avides de bonus). That list was communicated by a casino belonging to the same group: MiamiParadise. On MiamiParadise, I had used too much 50% bonuses - sent on invitation - so that my percentage was greater than the average....
In France we call that "publicit mensongre" (misleading publicity).
Independantly their dishonesty, they are stupid. If they had analysed their records, they would have seen that I play only at videopoker which is excluded from their wagering requirements...
Long life to casinofrancenet......

Bonjour,

In France we call that "publicit mensongre" (misleading publicity).

"Casinofrancenet"... adieu et bon nuit

That must have truly sucked, and I've had similar experiences myself (although not at "Casinofrancenet" nor at "MiamiParadise"). There's no justifying their sending you an invitational promotion (over at MiamiParadise), while having any kind of restrictions that would promote you to that list of "bonus greedy players", then hinder your opportunity over at another casino.

While I've been told otherwise (tel. reps), I don't see how one casino CAN'T be independent of another. Whatever happened over at MiamiParadise, happened at MiamiParadise. Everything that happens at "Casinofrancenet" is isolated, and has no dependency on the other casino (unless of course you were working their bonuses under two names from the same address... or something of that nature... well then, you have no power). Otherwise, they should (MUST) state such gaming limitations at their website, AND MiamiParadise should also send you an email immediately after they've decided to put you on that blacklist. I realize that casino's generally don't do this (or ever?), but it should be common practice (or it should be the standard, in an online realm with few standards these days). For reaons like this, very happy to have joined the Casinomeister forum.

On MiamiParadise, I had used too much 50% bonuses - sent on invitation - so that my percentage was greater than the average....

...they shouldn't have been sending out those invitations in the first place. It's like some of the PlayTech casino's throw all of these surprise $10/$15/$20/$50 bonuses at you after talking to their online support (just so can get you off their back so they can go grab a cup of coffee... or some more sleep), and when you finally make good on it (meet the playthrough requirements, and get ahead), they come up with the MUST MAKE A MIN. DEPOSIT OF $20 IN ORDER TO WITHDRAW YOUR WINNINGS... or if not that, they come up with the "used too many bonuses in relation to the amount deposited". Even when you ask about the limitations upon receiving those bonuses BEFORE playing (when it seems to good to be true that is), they seem to skip their "mystical" restrictions/limitations list.

Merci pour l'information, "jpmomo"...

Thakid2U, I've also made multiple deposits over at Jupiter, and I've done quite well there. Surprisingly, the only reason I had first started playing there, was because at some time last year, they'd sent me a CD (software) in the mail, with a $100 credit attached, and again, I'd never played there before. I did well, had no problems cashing-out, and have them ranked as an upper-tier casino.

Wild Jack is on the "considerations list"... Thanks for the list.

You know, in three years of online gaming, I haven't had that many bad experiences at any casinos. I've lost and won on all types of software, and had long (and I mean long) losing streaks. It's just part of gambling. Back a couple of years ago, before I knew anything much at all, I deposited and played a few times at Grand Banks, and was actually lucky enough to win around $500 I think. Well, I cashed out, and that cashout sat in pending for over two weeks, and when I finally did get a reply...all I was told was that the finanace dept. was backlogged and it would be processed as soon as possible. And I see that they haven't changed, they're still backlogged, lol. Of course, I ended up reversing it and playing it out, mostly out of frustration. So that's probably the worst.

Customer service is a BIG issue for me, and Belle Rock Gaming needs some serious help in this department. Maybe four months ago, I decided I would give their casinos another try and made a few deposits each at Riverbelle and Showdown. Well, I gotta say the gaming itself was excellent, I played forever on each deposit, I love the selection of games, and their promotions are decent. But I can't tell you how many emails I sent without ever receiving any sort of reply to this day. Ended up having to call numerous times over very minor issues, and I hate having to call if I'm not in the mood. I also tried live chat maybe three times, and each time had extended wait periods. So I finally gave up playing there. I would really like to go back, but their customer support issue has got to be resolved first.

Other than that, I've been lucky I guess. Not counting all the times I could have cashed out large sums, but kept playing like the stupid fool I am, lmaooo.. Oh, and if the casinos could all flush withdrawals and do away with the reverse cashout button, I would be much happier. Can't count the number of times I haven't made it throught that 24 or 48 hr pending period, but that's my own weakness.
