Review of Golden Arch Casino

Despite what the name might suggest, McDonalds has not opened an online casino. Imagine that - spin five Big Macs in a row and you win the jackpot - 4 million chicken nuggets. Golden Arch casino is actually operated by Multiactive Holdings Ltd, which is registered in Cyprus. It consists of an ordinary looking website that screams "cheap". Frankly, we recommend you avoid this casino due to some outrageous clauses in their terms and conditions, and the possibility that you can end up owing the casino money by playing on an automatically created line of credit!

Do not waste your time or money

The terms and conditions listed on Golden Arch's website are frankly ridiculous and reek of a dodgy operation. Here are a few choice quotes from their terms (emphasis added by us):

4. The minimum amount of winnings that may be withdrawn is $200 USD. Funds deposited by a player cannot be combined with winnings of less than $200 in an effort to circumvent the $200 minimum amount.

11. A request for withdrawal that meets all criteria herein will be honored within 10 to 14 days from the date of such request.

The casino automatically sets players up with a $300 "line of credit" account, meaning that it is possible to go into debt by losing more than you actually deposit by playing here. Golden Arch has even been known to "invite" players to play at the casino by mailing them a supposed line of credit card. Not only that, but it is deceptive in that it displays the line of credit as part of a player's regular balance:

Your cash and credit information is shown separately on the cashier page, but due to space limitations, those numbers are combined in your Balance as shown on each game. If your Balance is more than $300 you are playing with cash or bonus money. If your Balance is less than $300 you are using your credit line.

We could find no evidence of the following claims made on the casino's "fair gaming" page.

The Gaming Software has been examined by leading international accounting firm TST . After testing millions of game rounds, their analysis reported 100% random results. We also publish payout percentages on a monthly basis and the casino software is examined periodically by an independent third party accounting firm.

If you can find the link to those "published" payout percentages please get in touch and let us know where it is hidden.

And to top it all off, we have received reports of players being denied large winnings, with the casino claiming player error causing winnings to be forfeited.

Golden Arch Casino is just not worth risking your money at. In fact we're not even going to post a link to the casino's website. If you choose to play there, don't say you were not warned.

Warning! This casino is blacklisted and should be avoided.

Just wanted to comment on Goldenarch Casino policy. Goldenarch has changed its website and casino games, but has gotten worse on the bonus playthroughs they are going to be changing their terms to a 60x playthrough on slots, a 80x playthrough on table and a 15x playthrough on bingo. Just want to warn people. When I started to play on their old site it was only 20x for slots and that was only 2 years ago. At this rate if you get any bonus match you will never be able to cash anything out. By the way min cashout is still $200.00.. Its a lose - lose situation.

Thanks for the update Debscove. Golden Arch is a truly horrible operation - I cannot believe it is still in business with that ridiculous line of credit scam. Take the tip people - don't play there!

Yes it was taken down in the "Black Friday" seizure earlier this year in May. It was the same seizure that affected Full Tilt Poker and other sites that accepted Americans. The Feds actually did people a favour on this one.
