The credibility of online casinos is a very important aspect in determining where you play. The majority of casinos have a solid reputation and are trustworthy. Unfortunately, there are a few that have poor business ethics and should be avoided. These are what are labeled in the gaming industry as “rogue”.
There are several factors that determine a rogue casino including: unreasonably long delays when processing payouts, nonpayment of payouts, predatory terms and conditions, poor customer support and unfair gaming operations. Can you trust online casinos? read more here.
In the table below we use the following icons to illustrate these factors:
Knowing what casinos to avoid can be overwhelming without a resourceful reference tool to guide and educate players. LCB strives to bring awareness and educate players by placing a Warning symbol next to the name of casinos that should be avoided. A written warning and recommended alternative casinos are available under the review.
Below is a list of casinos broken down in four categories including:
Blacklisted: Stay away!
This is the most severe warning where players are strongly urged to avoid these casinos at all costs as they are regarded as highly unethical in business practice. The most common reasons they have been placed on this list include (but not limited to) declined withdrawal requests for legitimate wins, pirated software, no license to operate and are unregulated by any jurisdiction.
Predatory terms and conditions are also possible with unrealistic wagering requirements and other bonus rules that are flat out unfair. Other rules may employ low payout limits resulting in lengthy drawn out installments, or restricting certain countries with a different set of rules that are unfavorable. This group is the worst of bad apples and considered the most rotten ones in the bunch. Anytime a player sees a blacklisted casino, don’t walk away, run away!
Warnings: proceed with caution!
Players should exercise caution before playing at these casinos with this warning attached to it. Finding an alternative site is highly recommended to avoid unnecessary headaches. Making a deposit here can result in delayed processing of withdrawals that can linger up to a month or longer. Contacting customer service about any issues could go unresolved with no support to assist players. Some terms and conditions are rogue and may change at any time without warning. This may also include certain countries restricted to payouts equal to deposit, which voids any wins over that amount. Declining cash-outs without explanation or due to breaking very T&C's are possible.
Probation: Working to be better
'Probation' refers to those casinos that say they are turning over a new leaf, more specifically these are casinos that have been on our warning list but have gotten a second chance to try and redeem themselves. They have a month on the probation list to assist players and get all complaints resolved and to update any predatory or rogue terms that they had in place when they received the warning. If their probation period proves to be successful and the LCB team sees that they have cleaned up their act and players are happy then they will be removed from the list.
We do still advise players to proceed with caution when depositing at these casinos and to read the terms and conditions very carefully as to not break any rules. If they have already been on the warning list once they could fall back into old habits.
Closed: Blacklisted & closed down
Closure of these casinos is a result of operating a site that doesn’t live up to the proper industry standards regarding poor customer support, delayed processing of withdrawals and any other shady business practice. LCB supports these closures by always striving to bring awareness of casinos that are not reputable or willing to change. Unwilling to cooperate with players and trying to make every effort possible to resolve issues are common reasons. Eventually the gambling community catches on after repeated unethical business practice. Losing their integrity and deemed as untrustworthy leads to a traffic flow that continuously dwindles eventually leaving them with no choice but to close their doors.
Players should use extreme caution when playing at any of these casinos. It is advisable that these casinos are to be avoided altogether.
The casinos on the warning list will stay in place until LCB deems them honorable in ethical business practice. The decisions are based upon player experiences, unresolved complaints and affiliate partnerships.
