Review of Aladdin's Gold Casino
Aladdin's Gold is an online casino run by the experienced Club World group that offers games from Realtime Gaming (RTG). This casino is part of a group that has been in business for the better part of a decade now, and had proven to be reliable and trustworthy. However since a change of ownership in late 2016 I no longer feel confident that the casino is in good hands.
Warning: under new management, linked to rogue operator
All casinos in the Club World group changed hands in November 2016 after an acrimonious bust-up between the family members that shared ownership of the business. It has since come to our attention that the inexperienced new management has brought in external advisers that are associated with the extremely rogue AffPower group of casinos, an organisation that sits on our blacklist. We urge players to reconsider playing at this casino as we no longer feel confident in saying that it is a safe place to play due to the influence of a criminal element on casino management.
Software and Games
The Realtime Gaming casino software is PC based, and has relatively low system requirements. It will actually run fine on an older computer, so pretty much any machine you bought in the last 5 years will have absolutely no trouble with it at all. Don't be fooled by the low requirements, though - this casino looks fantastic, and offers extremely smooth play. There isn't a download version for Mac users, but many of the games on offer will run in instant play mode inside Safari or Firefox and you can play them quite comfortably there. If you're savvy enough to run Vmware, Parallels, or Virtual PC, you'll find that the PC version runs fine inside it.
Naturally, there's a good selection of video slot and classic slot titles - there are over 70 to choose from in fact. Each slot is simple to play, and can be played with bet sizes ranging from pennies to dollars. With such variety on offer, you are bound to find one to suit your taste. As for non-slot games, you can expect to find both American and European roulette (single zero with a lower house edge), Craps, Keno and Sic Bo. There's also an awesome array of card games including Blackjack, Baccarat, Caribbean Stud, Caribbean Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Let 'em Ride plus several more variants of table poker.
Support and banking
Support is offered via email with a 24 hour turnaround time, or directly via live chat. There is also a phone number that is manned at all times of the day and night. I have always found the support staff at this casino to be courteous and knowledgable.
Aladdin's Gold supports deposits via credit and debit cards, ECOPayz, eCheck, Neteller, Skrill and Wire Transfer. It also supports withdrawals to all of the above (except credit cards, of course), and they'll even send you a cheque if you'd prefer. Historically withdrawals are processed and paid within 48 hours, though with the recent management changes noted above I think that situation could take a turn for the worse.
Aladdin's Gold was at one time the gold standard for RTG casinos, particularly for American players. However with the recent changes in management and the known involvement of a rogue operator, caution is well and truly the better part of valour when considering whether to play at this casino.
