        there's loads of available info here; to be truly honest, HALF of these problems could have been avoided with a little bit of research and by actually READING these threads
        I've been screwed; but it's either my fault or the casino's; it's got zero to do with lcb. If anything, their site has improved my gambling awareness
        Why the hotility? Why not say thank you for everything they DO do, instead of the few things they don't

        Why do you feel it's their obligation to be the watchdog, and not just be the best forum out there?

        marty,

        I don't and never have "cow towed" to anyone. What i do try to do is bring a balance and fairness to all involved which include our members and the casinos.

        This is a public forum. Many players come through here who have legitimate complaints for which LCB takes very seriously and watches closely for more feedback.

        There is also the disgruntled player who is plain mad they lost. In most of these cases the player either gambled beyond their means or didn't play by the casino rules.

        We have NEVER censored bad raps on a casino. Like i have stated before the most active threads in the No Deposit section are rogue and there is a warning sign posted next to these threads. Not only there but a list of warnings and a paragraph warning players not to play at these casinos under our reviews. And why are they the most active??? The members want to play there thats why. The proof is in the threads!

        We can lead a horse to water but we can't force them to drink it. The purpose of any forum is to bring an awareness and education to players. Zuga and Blue work endlessly to resolve issues that players have that are legit. As well as any other Moderator who is asked to help a member.

        Guess what marty??? When they are not resolved and there is enough complaints they go on our warning list. The staff is not what makes this forum it is the MEMBERS.

        Our job as staff at LCB is to bring balance, fairness and awareness to ALL. What kind of forum would we be if we rogued every single casino that a member had a complaint on! There would be NO casinos left to play.

        Everyone complains at one time or another, its human nature and the way of a gambler. But that does not constitute a casino to be rogue. No business whether a forum or a casino deserves to be bashed unfairly.

        I do NOT get paid from ANY casino to give positive feedback. If i did i can promise you this LCB would FIRE me on the spot. What i am here to do is be as informative and fair to all as possible.

        The post you made is coming as an attack and it wasnt called for. I dont think you realize how much work Lips and other mods put into this site and helping our members.
        We do watch for all the members. Thats why we have all the warning signs, warning in the reviews and a casino warning list.

        We also have the direct casino support board where our members can ask questions and post their issues to approved LCB casino representatives.

        Also Ive personally resolved hundreds of complaints in the last 3+ years and all members here know they can PM me if they need my help.

        The whole purpose of this thread was to remind all members that there is two side to a coin. We do get a lot of unfounded complaints, and players bashing a casino just coz they lost.

        We cant, nor want to put a warning on all casinos just coz they received a negative feedback.

        The whole hostility thing you brought on yourself with the way you posted.
        The main purpose of LCB is not to be a casino watchdog. We are a comparison website, where you can find info on various casinos and their bonuses. We also have one of the biggest online gambling forums on web. The power of the LCB is in the community we have and the free forum we run here, where everyone can post their experience, good or bad.

        But with all the warnings placed, casino reps on board and the influence we have that helped in resolving complaints and bringing more transparency in casinos/players relations, theres no need to be tagged as casino watchdogs. We have created something unique and that belongs to all LCB members.
        We do listen to players feedback but we also respect casinos and thats why this thread was made. Not to protect the casinos, but to bring a different perspective as some of the issues raised on this very forum were simply a rants with no ground. And being that we do not censor posts, this thread that Lips made is more of a guideline and showing the other side of the coin.

        cheers

        Don't you think you could serve your members better if you offered better protection along w/ the atmoshere you have now. ie tropica is still in top ten casinos after the recent negative postings, should that be a warning?i guess most people would rather get free chips than warnings.what kind of rules are in place about voiceing your opinion. but its an attack .i can see you only want favorable feedback. and my opinion was un called for

        You think what you will. Its your prerogative.
        As far as me wanting only a positive feedback... Do I appreciate your tone in addressing to Mods and what we doing here, NO I dont. But you are free to post, arent you?
        Ill just remind you not to bash at Mods here.
        As far as Tropica issue we wont rogue them just coz of one negative post. And you are obviously missing the point of this thread and all that was said here.

        When i read this it Truely reminded me of why i am so proud and honored to be a member of this forum.................

        I do agree somewhat but its not just the run of bad luck that happens for players.

        We win some and lose some but when it comes to stupid things like depositing $1000's at 1 casino without a withdraw.

        Most people would say "play elsewhere then" when it comes to this. But if all known paying casinos were as random as they all suggest then surely playing at another casino would give the same results.

        Losing streaks are not something that is random bad luck. Its when at that moment in time the casino does everything in its power to make you lose. We all know that games outcomes are always decided when you hit spin or deal so if randomness was put into it how is it that for example when playing blackjack you could win quite a few hands in 1 sitting at $1 a hand, but raise to $2 and you have a 20 game losing streak... For me and many others this has happened time and time again so often is the situation that its 1 "randomness" rule for 1 bet amount and another for a higher amount.

        Gambling over previous years has always been a bit of fun and a game where you mostly lose, however you do win now and again.

        I previously thought and knew of gambling as in essence paying money into a big pot. As it fills up to the top you are given a large chunk of that pot and the rest is kept by the pot owner for regulating and looking after that pot for you. (as an example depositing $20 into a casino each week for 5 weeks and then on week 5 cashing out $60, so overall for 5 weeks you are $40 down but got a bigger sum than you would deposit usually in 1 go)

        As the industry has grown so has the greed and this is not just down to players trying for more than they could get.

        The house edge is an advantage so in casino terms they always make profit as long as theres players (minus affiliate and card transfer costs) but this advantage has gone above just the typical house edge.

        To add to this house edge there is "reversible withdraws". Everyone knows how hard it is to not reverse a withdraw and often money that a loyal gambler has cashed out is thrown back in and lost because of stalling casinos, excessive reverse times mixed with the temptation of them throwing offers to make you come back. Too many responsible gamblers have hit withdraw and wanted their funds but then got tempted to reversing and losing it. Yes it could be put as the players fault but there is no need to let the withdraws be reversible for that long.

        Wonderful post marcus!! I can tell you know your "stuff". I couldn't agree with you more on many  valid points you make. Especially the delays in processing withdrawals and players end up reversing.

        I would love to hear more of your  feed back at the forum.
