Review of Dublinbet Casino
When we first took a look at Dublinbet some time back, we noted how this predominantly live dealer casino was fairly ordinary, offering a series of dated looking games and payout times and service that wasn't much better. Things appear to have changed in recent times though, with Dublinbet adding a large number of slots from modern developers, re-designing their site layout, and adding even more new live dealer games. It was time to revisit Dublinbet and see if the changes are for the better.
Software and game selection
Dublinbet has a web-based platform and utilises a bunch of different software from developers including Yggdrasil, Actual Gaming, Betsoft, Net Entertainment, Play'n Go, Microgaming Quickfire, and Visionary iGaming. What this means to you is that you will have access to a wide assortment of games, including slots, table games, and video poker games, along with the casino's well known focus on live dealer gaming.
The casino's main point of difference on the live gaming front is that it broadcasts some of its games live from a land venue, The FitzWilliam Card Club in Dublin, Ireland. Sadly though, not much has changed with these games that are provided by Vuetec subsidiary, Actual Gaming, over the years that they have been offered. The quality of the video is terrible compared to the latest studio dealt games, and the placement of the cameras high above the tables is not ideal. This is no doubt due to the venue being open to punters physically playing at the tables who would otherwise block your view of the action. But the end result is that you feel like you are participating in the games through a security camera, rather than being at the table.
On the other hand, there are a bunch of other live dealer games that are broadcast from studios run by the likes of Microgaming and Visionary iGaming. These games offer a much better experience in terms of video quality, number of different betting levels offered, and a feeling of sitting at an actual table. I much preferred the studio games despite the attempt at providing greater authenticity via the FitzWilliam Card Club.
There are also a set of games that Dublinbet calls "TV Games", which feature baccarat, bet on poker, Wheel of Fortune, Dice, Lucky 5 and Lucky 7 (both of which are lottery draw games). These games are presented very well, offering what may be the best experience out of any of the webcast games, and the betting interface utilised is definitely the cleanest offered at the casino.
Players looking for a more traditional online gaming experience will find that Dublinbet's library has beefed up nicely over the past several years, as there are hundreds of slots to play from top developers like Net Entertainment and Microgaming. Mobile slots are also available on select games, giving punters another impressive slate of games to play away from their computer. Progressive jackpots from Microgaming are available, allowing players the chance to hit it big with games like Mega Moolah, King Cashalot, and Major Millions routinely offering jackpots that are six and seven figures.
Mobile play has also gotten an overhaul at Dublinbet, with the casino offering standard casino games and a full live dealer experience that can be accessed by smartphones and tablets, although you will want to make sure that you have a solid data connection (with ample data in your plan) if trying to stream the live dealer games over a mobile connection.
Banking and customer support
In my past review of Dublinbet, I noted how I did not like how the casino had low withdrawal limits and also held your winnings for 48 hours before processing payouts. My feelings on the 48 hour rule are always negative, as this gives players an opportunity to reverse their decision to take the money while ahead and lose what they won back to the house. Looking through the casino's terms and conditions I did not see anything regarding the 48 hour holding time so I asked the support staff who informed me that the casino's payout verification period can range from 1-5 days, with the actual payout process going on top of that depending on the method used. Unfortunately, the payout limits are still relatively low for those of you that like to bet big on the live dealer tables, with maximum withdrawals of €1000 per day, €5000 per week or €20,000 per month.
Customer Support does an excellent job of giving good information via the instant chat, as I found a helpful rep named Alexis who gave me the above-mentioned information on the banking. Alexis was quick to respond and seemed to know her stuff.
Security, fairness, and responsible gaming
Dublinbet's security is not in doubt, as the casino encrypts all information being sent to and from the casino using SSL technology. This means that any information coming and going is encoded by an encryption algorithm that cannot be intercepted and interpreted by any outside party who may have nefarious plans for your personal information. The casino does not list an accreditation or any outside third party auditing group to ensure the fairness of their games, but many of the casino's software suppliers do subject their software to testing, and I have no doubts that the casino's games are fair for players.
Responsible Gaming is addressed in the footer of the casino's webpages, giving a link to a dedicated page that gives some information with a few tips about cooling off or understanding whether or not your gambling behaviour is risky. While I would have liked to have seen a few links to support organisations, the fact that the casino does offer a self-assessment to help you set gaming limits and gives players the chance to contact the support staff to self-exclude you for a period of time between 7 days and 6 months is good to see.
It sure seems like Dublinbet has done a lot of work since the last time I took a look at the casino. It has produced a stylish and functional upgrade that now includes hundreds of games. The most significant improvement to me is the inclusion of studio broadcast live dealer games, which for the most part look great and play well and integrate many types of draw games that other casinos do not offer. On the flip side, the fact that the banking system remains somewhat limited is a black mark, and I would like to see to see the withdrawal limits increased and payout times speeded up. Still, Dublinbet has made great strides and I have no problem recommending this casino to you so long as you are aware of the inherent limitations.
