Default Casino-on-net reputable?

Hi,

I'm going to start playing at Casino-on-net in a few days, is that a pretty reputable casino? It's Europe based, which means nothing really.

Default cant decide

i cant decide, i have had no problems with the casino side of the operation, but i was playing poker on pacific poker, who own casino-on net, and 5 queens came down in a hand, so something was not quite right there.

Yes, Casino-On-Net is the same as 888.com, and they're one of the largest online casinos. I've never had a problem with them. They also have some decent promotions from time to time. Cash-ins are slower than some places, taking several days. However, I think you have nothing to worry about as far as fairness and certainty of payment.

I played there last week and did quite well. After I finished the WR for my bonus, I tried to cash out. I still haven't got my money, as I deposited via Credit Card. I'm not saying they are dodgy at all, just make sure you use Firepay or something to deposit, otherwise it may take a bit longer to get your money back.

Default Casino-on-net

So I have played the popular www.casino-on-net blackjack and was not that all impressed. It seemed I would loose a good 4 to 8 hands in a row before I would win one. I started playing at Starluck and found the blackjack game would go in "clumps" many losses and many wins stringed together. I played consistently at Starluck winning a little each day and finally cashed out with over $900.00 in winnings - took about 3 weeks. I have revisited Starluck and never been able to win with any kind of little streak at all.
It seems they turned the dial or something as if they new what I won and were going to make sure it would not happen again. I am now playing at wealthcliubcasino which I believe is a windows ran casino. Their blackjack game is by far the best and fastest I have played - I mean lightning fast! So it is really fun. However, I am bouncing around and have not really won any money yet! I guess time will tell! Has anyone played the live dealer blackjack games? They are played by webcam.

Default Trust Casinos

Dear all,

I am, like you all, very keen to play on casino (I like 888 casino until now - probably because I got used to it)

BUT

I have made some researches on how safe/secure is to make a deposit by credit/debit card on online casinos (not to mention the cash-out policies, that have been discussed several times within this forum).

I found few things that made me think more than twice before starting my "online casino experience":
- I have never seen any casino using 3D secure feature for processing online payments, which is a recommendation (and soon, it will be a must) for all VISA/MasterCard processors
- for credit card deposits it is difficult to identify the online payment processor that the casinos use
- some security experts talk about spyware and adware inside casino desktop applications: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,15409356
- when making your deposit you cannot see any "Certificate" on the deposit page - it is true that they say it is a safe connection, but you cannot see if the page is using HTTPS (the locker is just a logo; normally, in a browser you can see the yellow locker and you can click on it to see the certificate - down-right)
- I read that for credit/debit cards, there are some new rules from MasterCard and VISA, that do not allow the casinos to pay you the cash-outs, no more than the initial ammount you have deposited through card - for the rest they will use another method - that is why, some casinos do not mention as cash-out payment method the credit cards
- did anybody was in the situation to provide further documents for cash-outs ? IDs, Credit Card copies, Driver license copy, etc? would give your personal information for that? do you know the risks?

I hope somebody here has these answers for me (and for you too)

Credit cards are ineffective for most players in the US anyway, as most of the issuing banks decline all gambling transactions. That's why Neteller is the preferred deposit and withdrawal method. http://www.neteller.com

Even when credit cards worked for depositing, the restriction on withdrawing more than the original deposit meant that any profits would be paid by another method, usually a mailed check. Neteller eliminates that issue.

As for further documentation requested before cashing out, that's common at a lot of online casinos. You'll also see less of that if you use Neteller, because I think part of the reason is to prevent chargebacks on credit card deposits. Basically, there are a lot of fraudulent players out there, and that means we are all inconvenienced by the additional security measures necessary.

Having said all that, I'll finish with a bit of advice. If all this stuff makes you uncomfortable, you're better off not gambling online. It takes a real leap of faith to trust the games, the deposit and withdrawal procedures and the casinos themselves. If all that effort means you won't enjoy the games, why bother?

888 / Casino on net are fine. no problems with play or transactions and they only have a 20xWR.

so 10/10 from me.

Casino-on-net has changed their terms. you only recieve 25% of the bonus to begin with. To recieve the rest of the bonus you have to wager your deposit 20x making the wagering requiment a total of 40xB.

I just recieved the rest of the bonus but have deposited by Visa card and I'm pretty worried about the cash out seing this discussion.
