Review of Pinnacle Casino
Pinnacle Casino is the online casino arm of the highly regarded Pinnacle Sports bookmaking site. It features live casino games from Global Gaming Labs and RNG games from little known developer MultiSlot. The site boasts transparency, high payouts, and a generous cashback scheme as a point of differentiation instead of the usual bonuses that every other casino seems to offer these days.
The main focus of Pinnacle's Casino is the live dealer games that are provided by 3rd party supplier Global Gaming Labs. You can find live Blackjack, Baccarat, Casino Hold'em, and both American and European Roulette, though quite why anyone bothers playing American Roulette at double the house edge is beyond me. The games are broadcast from a live dealer studio, which we believe is located in Costa Rica.
The first thing that strikes you when you browse through the MultiSlot part of the Pinnacle Casino is the relatively small number of games. There were less than 50 slot machines when we tested this casino, 6 video poker games (which all lack a double up feature), and a handful of table and keno style games. The slot machines in particular can only be described as looking fairly ordinary - certainly nothing spectacular like we have become used to seeing from the top end developers. The table games look and play ok, but it is clear that this casino is more utilitarian than flashy.
In years gone by, Pinnacle Sports operated using games from Galewind Software, and was regarded highly for its high payout rate settings on games such as video poker. However with the change to MultiSlot those days are gone, and the odds on games such as video poker, blackjack, and roulette are no better than anywhere else. Pinnacle does publish an audited payout report each month that lets you know exactly what the games at the casino paid out in the preceding month. The random number generator (RNG) used by the software has also been audited to ensure the outcomes of each game are random and not rigged.
One for the High Rollers
In a world of casinos that often restrict players to withdrawing at most a few thousand in winnings per month, Pinnacle Casino's high stakes tables stand out like a sore thumb. Want to play Baccarat at $5000 per hand, or Blackjack for $10,000 per hand? At Pinnacle Casino you can, and the "no limits" withdrawal policy means that you will be paid in full when you withdraw your winnings. In fact we would go so far to say that Pinnacle is one of the better, places for high limit live blackjack, high stakes baccarat, or roulette online.
No bonuses? No worries!
We here at Casino Listings have bemoaned the fact that bonus offers seem to get worse every year and the conditions placed upon players claiming these bonuses become more and more onerous. More than once we have wondered why a casino doesn't try to simply do away with bonuses and all the associated baggage that comes with them. Well we are pleased to say that Pinnacle is attempting to do just that. Instead of giving you a bonus then locking your money up and forcing you to play through a set amount of wagering, Pinnacle simply rewards players with 0.3% cashback paid on almost every hand played or spin made. You earn the cashback every time you wager - win, lose or draw - on every game in the casino. No lock-ins, no wagering requirements, and you are credited with your cashback on a daily basis. Add 0.3% cashback to a game of Blackjack that pays 99.6% or a game of Pontoon that pays 99.7% and you can see that you are more or less playing games with no house edge.
Customer support and banking
Customer support at Pinnacle is conducted exclusively via email. There is no live chat facility, nor do they offer up a phone number publicly that would allow you to call them unsolicited. Although we found the response times to be pretty quick with all our queries answered within a few hours, sometimes the immediacy of live chat can be far more convenient.
The options you have to transact with this casino are many and varied and both the deposit and withdrawal limits are very high. In fact should you find yourself winning a progressive jackpot or go on a major winning streak, you can request to have your entire withdrawal wired to you in one single transaction, just as it should be. Keep in mind that there are fees applied to withdrawals if you make more than one in a calendar month and plan your withdrawals accordingly.
Pinnacle's change from the high-paying and trusted Galewind Software to a Costa Rica based live dealer suite, and an unknown RNG supplier in MultiSlot looks to have been motivated by a shift in focus to live dealer games. There are more games to play now overall, but the payouts which were what set this place above the rest in the past, are no longer a positive. Pinnacle seems mainly a destination for those of you who like to dabble in live dealer games along with your sports betting.
I've been a member at Pinnacle casino for quite some time now. I initially joined them as I liked their welcome bonus offer, which I had a good time with and managed to make a withdrawal. Afterwards I played there a few more times and made a couple of withdrawals. I've always had good experiences there, the withdrawals have been smooth and I never had any issues. I've spoken to their customer support team a few times and they've always been very helpful and professional. I think they have a good selection of games and their mobile casino offers good user experience. I haven't played there for some time now just because I wasn't really interested in their promotions, there wasn't really much going on. Other than that, from my experience they seem like a trustworthy brand and I don't see any reason to not recommend them.
Pinnacle is a huge name in gambling industry and i respect them so much. And not only me but also many other players.
Talking about their casino, so its not the best place for slot lovers because they cant offer many games. also they dont have bonuses. So i believe that they dont make a huge profit from their casino.
Sports betting is the biggest reason why Pinnacle is number 1 in the world. They offer probably the best odds in the world but the biggest reason why i respect them so much because they allow to play for winners there. They will never puts a limit on winning accounts. If you dont bet big amounts you probably will never see a diference but start to win thousands and you will find that even such a monster like bet365 is a trash comparing to Pinnacle because they will put a limit very soon if you started to make good profit from sports betting. So for everyone who wants to bet big and to win big i suggest to play in Pinnacle.
But if you are a regular member who just little amounts maybe it;s not for you because: 1. Sports betting lines dont have many of extra bets; 2. You need to rollover your deposit at least 3 times before withdrawal; 3. They dont offer the bonuses.
But despite these disadvantages i gave to Pinnacle 5 stars because of the respect for winning players.

Pinnacle Casino using games created by Global Gaming Labs and MultiSlot. It is operated by Ragnarok Corporation N.V. The games in here is so so simple. Not interesting at all, but Pinnacle Casino is good in sport beting. For payment Pinnacle is good. But if playing casino in here is not good choice.
Pinnacle Casinos sports betting section is what they are most popular for but the casino is a great additional benefit and added extension for those who like myself who enjoy the best of both worlds , they offer Ecopayz as a deposit method which is crucial for a lot of players who have split ways with Neteller and Skrill , the slots and games on offer are plenty from all the leading providers with p Yggdrasil being added soon only makes this a casino one to add to the little black book of favourites, the bonuses and promotions are not the best and can be improved but the cash back on wagers is always good thing to have in place
Pinnacle sports is very well-known and reputable sports betting operator, this gives him very goood start to be also a good casino operator, but in my opinion, he is wasting his chances and offering poor casino games variety and services at all. Personally I dont like that weird slot games (other ones are unchecked, these were enough to me) and pinnacle is getting itself down on my personal quality ladder of online casinos. I was disappointed and dont recommend this operator for online casino gambling,
Oh,and the promotions are also poor - here the negatives could be overweight but again, wasting chances and better bearing its "no-promotions-at-all" reputation. 😢
PeDrone’s Pinnacle Sports Casino Review
This online casino using games created by Global Gaming Labs and MultiSlot. It is operated by Ragnarok Corporation N.V. – and is very reputable operator because of its sportsbook fame. However, the slots software doesn’t seem to be interesting for me at all.
Here comes another negative! Pinnacle Sports Casino does not offer any bonuses at all – they mention this also almost inside their advertisements! It is true that they usually make this better with better odds on sport bets and some other details, but for me as a Slot player it is a big negative.
Deposits and withdrawals
There are quite many deposit and withdrawal options, I used Skrill as usual to deposit amount of ~30 eur, did not want to give more, and anyway I did not withdraw anything finally, so I have not also regretted it.
As I said, I couldn’t also check their withdrawals.
Live chat support service should be also live chat but they simply and rudely accept only emails. This is a big disappointment for me, as the live chat missing is a large break to any Customer support solved issue – it multiplies the time of solving the solution (especially if there is a feedback needed) 10x+ at least in my experience.
I played few games here, but everyone should understand that as it provides absolutely unknown softwares, I do not remember the games exactly 🙂 But in result I finished with zero as well.
I recommend this site as a sportsbook, definitely not as casino – they are NOT designed to work as casino in my opinion.

Pinnacle sport i never use for casino games or slots games i join this casino because my friend who always bet in our land based bookmaker ask me about internet betting and he is not very good in such things and it is really hard for him to use PC at all so he told me can i find for him good place to make bets and that place that will not steal money. After searching and reading many forums with sport bettors i find that looks like pinnacle sport is good for making bets and many guys say that it is one of the best place. So my friend give me cash and i create account and make deposit from my skrill for this amount and just make bets that my friend told me on phone. He did very good and most his bets was winning so i deposit also some my own money and he allow me to make bets with his strategy too. I am win about 300$ from his bets and buy him few beers. Casino verify my accout for 2 days and on 3 day i get my money and money of my friend on skrill. We use this sportsbook few more times and still sometimes he ask me to place some bets and this casino always withdraw money with not any delay and never try to stole money.

Hello! I was start playing at pinnacle sports long time ago. And i can tell that it has it name not just for fun, and this is not another one stupid casino name. I believe for pinnacle sport casino part is not so important, like betting part, and probably two years ago i start playing different and interesting bets. Actually i am have absolute zero knowledge in sport betting, i am always bet for team that i like, or just for any bet that has higher chances to win than other. Few times there i made about 10 bets 10$ each at favorites, and my strategy work, and everyday just making such stupid bets i just see how my money growing and growing. I made there 100$ deposit, and one day probably a week after start betting i found myself sitting at nice 400$ balance. Wow, thats was nice feeling to get 300$ in profit just for nothing, i think this is even better feeling than big win in slots. Of course i request cashout, which was paid on next working day after verifying my account.
I did not play their casino side, but betting looks ok, and you can trust them! I have nice time playing at pinnacle sport casino. 4 stars.
