    This video and some of the comments, not to mention my own horror stories, really put the idea in my mind that "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark".



    There is also an argument that says "Do not underestimate the power of human greed". So I'm not completely convinced by the argument that casinos don't need to scam you because they already take your money with the house edge.

    No is the simple answer, the ones that are regulated are very fair. It's like anything like this, you have to take it in good faith. Certainly I can say that sites in the UK/Europe like PaddyPower and Bet365, PlayOJO etc are all regulated and games are tested by a third party. I'd say there is a few bad guys in the industry but as whole I don't think we are being scammed at all.

    I'd say look at reviews and make a judgement on which site you want to try.

    It is clear that some online casinos that are not regulated use a rigged RNG which offers a better edge for the Casino and cleans your bankroll quicker. But as Neal said, the majority are not rigged and they do not need to be since we can say that all the games that a Casino offers are already rigged in their favour (unfair payout Vs probability of winning), this is how they are in business since they exist.

    Unfortunately, this video is presented by Roulette30, so based on Kav's (admin) previous behaviour, it can't be trusted as anything more than click-bait.

    Having said that, the question is not "does cheating exist", but more "where does it exist"?

    Sticking to reputable casinos is probably safe.:D

    And amazingly, there are some online casinos that don't "cheat" and pay their winning clients on time.

    Live dealer only. No RNG play for me at all.

    Online casinos are a predatory scam.

    They all too often ban and keep players winnings.

    I have never had any issues with Sky Casino or Sky Vegas ( I'm not affiliated this is just my opinion).

    2k is nothing if you've had some losses. However, there's no chance in hell that you can pull that out everyday and not get banned.

    You seem to ignore that Dublinbet does not have only an online activity, it is a land based Casino where real people are playing at the tables. If you had the chance to win 2K everyday, of course they would pay you, but as TurboGenius you are dreaming stand-up, you can't do that.

    1. The same terms and conditions for playing online at Dublin are not same as playing in the actual casino. Yes, they too can and will seize your money if you win too much online if they decide that you're a professional gambler or part of a team.
    2. Land base casinos can and will ban you as well, but the win threshold is much higher and they don't usually try and keep your front money, but will sometimes try and keep your win depending on where you are. Indian reservations are the worst, but even Caesars Palace in LV has a history of trying to keep from paying out large wins.
    3. Read the conditions of playing online. You'll find the rules aren't fair.

    Dublin is operating since 2004, 24h/24-7d/7, by this long time it would have been known if someone would have been banned or not be able to withdraw his jackpot at whatever games.
    You are making assumptions but cannot give concrete examples because they do not exist, there is no one who complained about their winnings not paid, you can search but you will row, I tell you.

    Bago,

    FYI..the casinos don't advertise when they ban someone, and when they take their money. There is no list.

    FYI people can report their bad experiences and scams on the Internet and also take their cases to court. Sadly for you there is no record of a player being scammed by Dublinbet. It is silly to think they would rip off someone whereas they are an established and old Casino in Ireland.
    I would agree with you if it would be a set up Casino in a rented studio like it was the case for CasinoWebcam (which disappeared), it is quick to run with the money pot, but when you have a land based Casino, you do not scam a player on the Internet with the big risk of having a bad reputation and lose customers. They don't need to cheat as you should know, they are operating already unfair games that guarantee them a long term income.
    Also there are no professional roulette gamblers online, so they have nothing to fear, you should stop smoking the carpet.

    That's funny, I know of one that's currently trying to find an attorney so that he can get his money.

    Look around and you'll find that there are complaints.

    Haven't they changed their licensing from Isle Of Man to Costa Rica approximately a year ago?
    Don't you wonder why?
