Review of Jackpot Wheel Casino
Jackpot Wheel Casino is a browser-based, no-download required casino owned and operated by the Grand Privé Casino Group, licensed under the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. Jackpot Wheel was blacklisted by us in December 2008 due to the termination of contracts between its parent company and thousands of affiliates and business partners.
Blacklisted - Parent company no longer pays the bills. Financial trouble?
In November 2008, the Grand Prive Group, along with all other Microgaming operators, pulled out of the US market for new players. However Grand Prive went one further and shut down their affiliate program while continuing to service existing players. The end result is they will no longer service their contractual obligations to their affiliates, advertisers and business partners. This looks to us to be a desperate move by a company looking to cut costs by any measure possible, so we urge all players with outstanding balances at these casinos to exercise extreme caution and withdraw your money while you still can.
Update April 2010: In another worrying sign, they also recently switched software providers from premier (and most expensive) supplier Microgaming to unheard of (and presumably cheap) BetOnSoft.
Like other casinos under the Grand Privé, brand, Jackpot Wheel Casino offers quick and easy game play, great game variety, and excellent game quality. They also offer a great range of payment and withdrawal means and methods, apart from innovative bonuses and loyalty comp points to reward members.
Jackpot Wheel Casino has placed UTCS Limited, Chericko Holdings B.V. and Epiphinance B.V. in charge of the casino’s electronic cash transactions. Safe, reliable and secure transactions are conducted using 128-bit encryption technology and anti-fraud mechanisms to ensure that member transactions remain private.
Jackpot Wheel Casino is recognized by the Internet Content Rating Association. It is also a member of the Internet Gaming Council. Jackpot Wheel Casino is definitely high up in the flash-based casino ladder when it comes to credibility.
