Dishonest Online Casinos

By the Moderators at Blackjack Forum Online

Based on our own experience and reports from other professional players, in our opinions the following casinos are a danger to players.

Some use non-random software in which the payout rates appear to be rigged.

Some didn't pay winners, or required extraordinary effort to collect.

Some had exceptionally bad customer service or engaged in unethical business practices, such as refusing to honor the bonus terms and conditions in place at the time a player made a deposit.

Because we know that some experienced players will occasionally play riskier places in order to take advantage of exceptional bonuses, we have separated the most serious problems and near-criminals from the shaky-financials, stingy offers, questionable softwares and hopelessly inept so that you can decide for yourself how much risk to take. You will find this second group in our "Iffy Casinos" list below.

There are so many reputable and well-run casinos on the Internet, why take a chance on the places where other players have been having problems? And there is so much competition for customers among the good casinos, why take your action to a place with a non-competitive bonus, or bad rules or payouts?

Bear in mind that, although we strive to keep this list up to date, new crooked casinos do crop up from time to time and conditions at established casinos may change.
