Hi Guys, I have been looking at the online casinos can any of you tell me of any NOR friendly ones,by that i mean the ones you have been most successful. Thanks Guys.

Lou30,

Where are you based? If someplace other than the Colonies, you're good to go with several international brands, most based in Europe with a few across Asia.

If you're US based, you're pretty limited at this time. With only two that I'm aware of, only one of which I'm familiar with.

Be prepared to produce a LOT of pretty private information to whatever casino you do decide to play on. Well, not really to play on but when you go to take out your winnings, you will be asked for a lot of information to confirm who you are.

Go slow with chosing your online casino. Test it a lot in free play. I would recommend ONLY playing the live dealt games and not the RNG, but that's my own personal preference based on past experiences.

Once you do chose one or two, check back in and see if anyone else on the forum is playing there.

There are a few sites online that track online casinos. You may want to check out casinomeister dot com and take a look around.

Lou30,

I remember the day I made the decision to become a fully paid up member here. I put a lot of thought and time into it.

Probably the best "gambling" decision" I've ever made.

I won my "fee" back mostly with online play and have never looked back since.

Well, this looks like as good a place as any to ask this question.

I was playing tonight on BetPhoenix and during the shoe, about hand 45 or so, the "tote" board just kind of disappeared.

It was very disconcerting at first but as I was keeping the usual running record anyway, it wasn't all that big a deal, but the tote board never actually came back and I finished out the shoe.

Anyone else seeing this in their online play?

For those who wish to play "that" shoe, here it is, as I recorded it.

Wow, what a great shoe. A little mishap on the first 4 but I played it OTB4L U1D1M2 Mode 3 for ST and Mode 2 for ZZ.

I quit when I hit +38 the second time. Not bad for a 60 play shoe.

The new start up rule got the first 4 wrong but it made up for that by getting the ZZs right and the rest of the 4s right.

MVS,

Do you have problem while playing at betphoenix?

No. I've been playing there almost 4 years now.

Other than the occasional drop out of the game it's been relatively smooth play. I do not play when I don't get a good video feed though and will usually just wait for another time or day when that happens.

Can you tell us how to deposit into betphoenix?

At the time I made my one and only deposit, it was kind of a trust type thing, which nicely got around the prohibitions on US credit cards. I had done my homework and read over the deposit and play agreements on the site and then actually called them on the phone to get a feel for the operation. All of my questions were answered and we did a "cash advance" to pay for the deposit. Nobody in their right mind would EVER use a cash advance on a credit card for any normal reason (very expensive if you don't pay your cards off on time) but it was the only "valid" way to get the money to them at that time. They did reimburse me for the "advance" fee that my credit card charged, which was a nice touch. As it was only a $200 (40 units) deposit, I figured I could immediately cancel the card if anything funny started to happen on it. Nothing ever did and that card eventually expired so it all worked out fine.

Also, be aware that playing online, and actually taking money OUT of the casino will require a substantial amount of documentation and personal information to be transmitted to them. To a lot of people, this is unacceptable so be sure and email or call them to find out just what they will want before you can take your money out.

I do not know how they accept funding these days as I've not had to do it. Hopefully there's a better way now but there will always be a certain element of implied trust when you do these things.

Also, I did not, nor have I ever, taken any bonus play. I find the play through requirements to be very lopsided in favor of the casino and it does tend to hamper efforts to withdraw money at times. If your game is good, you won't need the bonus money.

Do they accept US player?

They did for me and I haven't heard of any players lately on the various forums who have said they've been turned down by them.

I have found that being able to play from the comfort of my desk, surrounded by scoresheets and computers is much nicer than being surrounded by chain smoking losers. I will play in the brick and mortar casinos when it is presented to me, but my time actually inside the building is generally just enough to beat the shoe and get out of there. My tolerance to heavy cigarette smoke gets smaller by the year!

Like I've mentioned in several other threads. Be sure and do your homework when chosing an online casino. Read the signup agreement and then read it again. Be sure you understand all of the banking rules. How to pay. How and when to get your money out! What are the fees? Some online casinos charge a LOT of money just to take your own winnings out! READ THE AGREEMENT and if there's something you don't understand, call them and ask about it. After all, it's YOUR money you will be dealing with. Understand just what you're buying into.

Also be aware that there are casinos out there that attempt to tag on to a good casino's reputation but having a similar sounding name. BetPhoenix is not BetPhoenixCasino. One is good. One is really bad. I almost found that out the hard way.

I am in no way associated or affiliated with BetPhoenix dot ag. I'm just a member and player. If they sucked, I would be among the first to speak up about it. Hey, it's my money too!

MVS (off soap box for now)

Has anyone used Sportsbetting.ag ? Any good or bad feedback would be appreciated!

Monte,

Hmm, that name sounded familiar. I went over and logged in and doggone if I didn't have $56 in the account. I hadn't been over there for a long time as the "shortcut" I had on my computer listed it with another name.

The interface to get to the "live" casino was a bit cumbersome, but I made it. Then I had to figure out how to get money from my account to the live casino account (hint, click on cashier) and then I could make a few small wagers to test it out.

The game is VERY fast. Much faster than BetPhoenix but if you have your tracking sheet made out quickly, you can get the wagers down in time.

I ran four quick hands and won three of them. Woo-Hoo! Then had to negotiate my way out of the casino. Evidently there is no graceful way to do it other than just close the screen. I then went back into the live casino and hit cashier to move the money back into my account from the live casino account.

A very nice, large video of the live casino worked well and you can "chat" with the girls if you're into that kind of thing. I don't unless specifically addressed for some reason.

Anyway, I'll try to get some sporadic play in over there now that I'm aware I've got the account funded for a bit.

Thanks for bringing it back to my attention.

MVS,

I have only watched parts of a couple shoes there. They looked to be very good for OTB4L. I did see that they do a hand shuffle and wash after each shoe right at the table. Please keep me informed as to the stability of the game you play there. I dont want to put any money there until I have a better history! Thanks

All,

With a few forums coming up with "online casino" threads and which ones to play, I had to go back out and see which casinos are using who's studio for their live games.

As it turns out for me, I've just "rediscovered" the following. . . . .

5Dimes' "Vegas" live baccarat table is the same as the Black Orchid studio.

5Dimes' HD live baccarat table is the same as Sportsbetting's studio game.

So, depending on where your "home casino" is, depends on which studio you'll get to play.

I did prefer the 5Dimes/Sportsbetting (HD) casino play for the larger screen and normal cards but playing on the Black Orchid front end is not a problem either.

I have just recently been put back on to Sportsbetting dot ag so that's why I've been looking around again. I'm still a full time player on BetPhoenix but will continue to "test" Sportsbetting/ag.

MVS,

Withdrawal fee at BetPhoenix seems to be high. What about a free check every 30 days? Have you tried that or do you have a different withdrawal method.

Tks,

jsintl,

Hmm, I don't believe I've ever paid any fee to take money out. I use the "once a month" free check thing.

I have noticed that a lot of online casinos really take a big chunk out of your winnings when you go to get your money. I don't understand why players insist on pulling their money out several times a week, AND PAYING TO DO IT!

Anyway, use the one free one a month and it will be delivered to your front door by FedEx drawn on a Canadian bank.

Thanks MVS for the info. What about if your account is inactive for months? Do they charge you with dormant fee every month.

They offered me bonus with 12xrollover which I will not get + $100 casino chip. Do you know anything about this $100 casino

chip if I have to do wagering requirements as well.

Again, thanks for the input.

Brgds,

I don't know as I've never been "dormant". Call them and ask.

I do know that my old Racebook online account had been untouched for over a year before I found out they had restarted under a new name and my account was just as I left it with no "dormant" fees at all.

They offered me bonus with 12xrollover which I will not get + $100 casino chip. Do you know anything about this $100 casino chip if I have to do wagering requirements as well.

No I don't. I don't do any bonus play. Call them and ask what the "play through" requirements are.

Once again, to everyone reading this thread who is thinking about opening an online casino account.

Read the agreement and if you have questions, CALL THEM.

If you can't get a hold of anyone before you send them money, it will probably be just as bad once you have a problem and need to call them.

infact the best way to gamble got to a land base casino they can hide but they can't run

Dark,

Well, that's OK if you're reasonably close to a casino but for many of us, it turns into an "all day affair" to go to the "local" B&M casino.

For some, the problems of cigarette smoke, noisy people, obnoxious table mates and several other distractions are not what they are looking for when playing baccarat to win.

If one is vigilant and keeps their online balance at a reasonable level, the comfort and convenience of online play is a huge plus.

All that and I can brew up a correct spot of tea for the shoe at any time!

Dark,

OK, one more time.

I only play the LIVE DEALT baccarat games. Never the RNG or computer simulation games.

Live dealer = Yes!

Computer = No.

Get it?

some live dealt they will lag when you get a natural 9 or 8 with bigger progression either tie or lose after lag never win

Darkvalefor,

If you're having that much trouble with your online casino, I would suggest you not play it.

You never did mention what casino you actually do play at while online.

Please let me know so I can avoid it!!
