Review of Cafe Casino

Café Casino is one of the newer U.S. focused casino skins run by Lynton Limited, an operator responsible for the established Bovada brand along with a couple of other sites. Of these, Bovada offers a complete betting solution covering sports, casino, and poker, while Slots.lv is a slots focused casino. Café Casino treads much the same path as Slots.lv in choosing to focus exclusively on both casino games and American punters.

Software and game selection

Café Casino operates using a web-based platform that eliminates the need to download any software to your computer. This instant play platform allows you to register, deposit, play, and withdraw funds directly through the browser, and is very efficient in its execution. The site appears to be designed primarily with mobile compatibility in mind with large a large, "blocky" layout, so I had no problem in accessing the site and playing games on my iPad.

The games offered by all Bovada-associated casinos are a mix of established developers like Rival Gaming and an older set of Realtime Gaming (RTG) games, along with a collection of in-house developed slots and games that you cannot play at casinos run by other operators. I say "older" when referring to the RTG games because this operator bought their own copy of the games from RTG many years ago now, and they don't get any of the developer's newer releases. Slots are the primary focus of Café Casino, with dozens of 3-rell classics, 5-reel, and interactive slots available for play.

If you prefer to play table games, you'll find that the casino has six different styles of Blackjack, Baccarat, Caribbean Stud, Craps, Roulette, Three Card Poker, and Rummy on the roster. Video poker fans can also get in on the action, as there are single and multi-hand versions of Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, and Joker Wild games. Specialty games like scratch cards, bingo, and keno round out Café Casino's roster of games, although if you're like me and the majority of players, you'll likely not care much about those.

Banking and Customer Support

The banking system at Café Casino is limited but still good in terms of processing speed. Deposits can be made through Bitcoin and credit card, with the casino particularly keen to encourage players to use Bitcoin. Withdrawals may be paid via Bitcoin or check which is shipped out to your house via FedEx Overnight. I have never had an issue getting a check from this casino group, and generally see my money arrive within a week (sometimes even as fast as 2 or 3 business days) of requesting payment. If you elect to use Bitcoin you can expect to be paid within 24 hours.

Customer support is handled through email and telephone, and while it's a disappointment to see no live chat function available, the staff does manage to get back to you relatively fast through email. I had a few questions about banking with Bitcoin, and had an answer to my question responded to within a half hour.

Responsible Gaming, fairness, and security

Café Casino dedicates a page on their site to responsible gaming, which provides tips on how to avoid problem and underage betting. There are also links to gambling assistance organizations and the option to limit or self-exclude yourself from the site. On the other hand there is nothing in your account settings that allows you to set limits on your play or control your time spent on the site.

In days gone by the operator was licensed to run casinos by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission which is just about the top of the tree when it comes to jurisdictions that are willing to license offshore online casinos that cater to American punters. However in September 2016 this operator surrendered its license and at this point in time appears to be operating without a license from any jurisdiction.

Looking through the terms and small print of Café Casino, I was unable to find any information as to the fairness of the casino's games, nor any theoretical or actual payout percentage data. This is disappointing to see because while this casino's operator is obviously a leader in some aspects of casino operation for U.S. players, it lags behind others in areas such as this.

Security is handled through standard SSL encryption technology, which protects your data from prying eyes while in transit between your computer and the casino. The encryption is active at all times while you use the casino's website which is as it should be.

Conclusion

Café Casino is more or less a "skin" or clone of the casino section at Bovada, and that is not a bad thing. You can expect the same set of games, and the good level of service that you get at the operator's other casinos. While the payment options are limited, the casino's increasing focus on Bitcoin means that you can get your money back in your hands very quickly so long as you are au fait with this new technology.

I tried to deposit money there 4 times today. Each time, a green bar moves from left to right making me think that my deposit is being processed but nothing ever happens. The screen just seats there, stuck on neutral. Too bad. They seem to have a lot of games and I wanted to give them a try.

I tried this casino bc I trust bovada but I did not have much luck here. I liked the layout and they seem to have some good bonus offers and free chips but I did not manage to have any good hits making a few deposits.

I don't care if it is associated with Bovada, the people behind this casino are not trustworthy. Extremely shady casino. Had 2500 cash in my account, made another deposit with a bonus attached to it. They took my money I already had and put it in my bonus balance once I went a cent below my original balance. How does that make any sense???!!! Also, they will let your withdrawal sit there for a week and if you press spin once on a machine and go below the amount they cancel out the withdrawal and make you start all over, even if you get the balance right back to where it needs to be. Also..high bonuses with ridiculous playthroughs and extremely tight slots. I mean, you can't give a 600% bonus and have fair odds. Go elsewhere!! These people are not worth trusting your money with.

Put in $250 and was matched with some pretty fantastic matches, but you can't get a descent hit for trying. REALLY tight slots. Go somewhere else unless you want to give them your money like I did. There are much better odds elsewhere.

I am dropping my rating of this casino. I deposited 35 and hit 170 right when I started playing so I called to forfeit my bonus. The operator said I cant do this and must meet playthru. I let her know that I hit on my 35 and was not using bonus funds yet and that I have forfeited a bonus with them before. She said that was a 1 time option. Yet they did not tell me this when I did it the 1st time. I told her all of the other casino Bovada, Ignition allow the bonus to be forfeited and she said they are not associated with any of those casinos.

I will not be playing at this casino again. What is the point of a 600% bonus with only a 10x cash out and the playthru is what 45x. So I have to play thousands to unlock 350. No thanks!! I just went ahead and bet 10 a spin and played it to 0. Waste of $35 dollars. I was totally fine with the max cashout as long as I had the option to cancel the bonus before I used their funds.

These guys are snakes, i had 2200 in winnings but they revoked the winnings because the account was under a relatives name when in their terms and conditions it states one account per household which everything was legitimate.

I swear they will use very small detail to prevent you from getting your winnings whether it be bonuses or verification or card usage.

Avoid these cafecasino.lv guys at all cost.

They stated they will provide refunds, within 15 days due to my account having winnings. So i'm guessing if i didn't they would of kept the deposits entirely.

Absolute Frauds and Con Network.

Bovada, Slots,lv, CafeCasino, and Ignition must be avoided like the plague. At least if you burn your money you get a few moments of heat. This network will do everything in their power to lure you in with huge bonuses and once they do... Good luck winning, and if you do they will figure out a way to steal it from you. I personally was robbed and harassed by this network to levels I wouldn't wish on my mortal enemies.

Beware of Cafe Casino, they are extremely deceptive and just be prepared to have them cheat you out of your winnings. I will never play on this site again and if you're smart you won't either.
I give them a half star rating.
