Worst Casinos in 2016 to Avoid

Back Worst Casinos in 2016 to Avoid

There is nothing worse than getting duped by a casino. The excitement of winning a nice sum of cash fair and square suddenly turns into a nightmare because the casino has more excuses than carter has liver pills (a borrowed phrase from mom) to pay up. There a slew of reasons why casinos earn the title of rogue.

LCB takes pride in busting casinos that are nothing more than imposters. That’s right they are masters of deceit but not that good they could fool us! They are a pirate of sorts and no not the Johnny Depp kind instead they claim to be powered by top shelf software but it’s not the genuine software at all. Yes, these sites are the great pretenders of quality products all in the name of operating their business in the cheapest way possible.

We were busy in 2016 scouting out these fakes and reporting it to members.

Here is a list of casinos using phony software:

worst casinos 2016
  • AFFPower Brands - Cosmik, Park Lane, AtlanticCasinoClub, EuroMoon, Osiris and Deuce Club
  • Twist and Vulcan Casinos
  • BTC Casino
  • 77 Jackpot
  • Pamper Casino
  • Golden Cave
  • Pin-up Casino
  • 2WinPower

We also wanted to take it a step further in protecting players against predatory terms & conditions. We changed our casino review format to reflect not only the advantages but disadvantages. By combing through the t&c we eliminate the work for you and list anything that appears unethical.

We did a special report in November on Riviera Play Casino’s questionable terms. In the article we listed 8 shady terms including some of the top no-nos:

'All withdrawals will be paid in from £/€/$250 and up to £/€/$3000 installments. To approve the withdrawal This process may take 5-10 business days”

''The casino won't pay two successive withdrawals in the case the player is not active after the first withdrawal.''

''If your balance is less than the amount of the bonus you will not be able to withdraw.''

Players weren’t too happy either:

Zuga commented: “Terrible cash-out limits and unacceptable long withdrawal times, including up to 10 days pending time. Awful .”

Other comments:

“Used free bonus, no winnings. Withdrawal time too long.”

“I used their 10 free no deposit bonus but honestly i never trust Rival casinos ,to weird terms and conditions and too long withdraw time frame i think i will stick to my favorite casinos i can trust.”

Casinos That Belong in the Sin Bin

Some of the casinos added in 2016 have either been placed on our Warning page or we are keeping a close eye on which in part is due to the valuable comments given by players who have had bad experiences.


Versailles Casino has a rating of 1.8 and Melcb in our marketing department said:

“No license info displayed on the website:/”

A member stated: “I hate Rival casinos) Dodge this casino :) They have some problems). Pay attention to another casinos which you can find in this forum. This one is not trustable.”

4Grinz Casino has no license and has already on our Warning list. Member Niels share his unhappy experience with us:

“4Grinz, i still felt a shame i ever deposit with them, what a terrible experience ,chat agents are almost robots no professional help at all, very stupid answers and i even wondered if they had any idea that they work in an casino!”

“i won quite a decent amount long time ago and it never have been processed after weeks of waiting i was done so i played my balance all away and closed account , they kept telling me they had cashout problems etc, which wasn't completely true, because other agents says they didn't had any problems and payment team have to approve and they kept telling me that for days, every agent told me something else terrible casino!”

Silveredge Casino lacks the necessary license to operate. It is also based in Costa Rica which has a poor reputation for regulations. Ludicrous terms that state any payout over $1,000 is paid in installments.

Madame Chance Casino is an Affpower brand operated by Game Tech which was reported using pirated NetEnt slots. Feedback was far from complimentary:


“Yesterday they sent me only 20 euro on my skrill account. Many thanks Madame Chance for stealing the money i won. I just want to say that thieves like you i've never seen in my life! It's easy do in this way with your fake terms and conditions. You should change your name because you don't give any chance to players. Enjoy with my money Madame!”

“Another bad thing is that the player can't see the wagering requirements. In fact the player can know this only in the chat...very very strange. In this way i think that many players lost a lot of money expecially if after they find excuses to not pay them. Another bad thing is that i have to wait another 4 days to get the deposit. However i played for nothing and i lost the winnings (205 euro). I only hope that this casino will be closed because their terms are absurd as i read also on other reviews.”

Reporting the Good, Bad and Absurd in 2017

The LCB team will continue in the new year to keep an eagle eye on any casinos that appear to be missing the integrity required. We would like to thank members for their valuable feedback. Working together we can help players eliminate making bad choices. It is our goal to continually report unethical business practices from rogue casinos and in doing so hopefully create more winners in 2017.
