Review of Raging Bull Casino
Raging Bull Casino is an online betting site that offers up a slew of games through Realtime Gaming. The casino is friendly to American players, and I knew I had to take a look at the site to see if it was actually legitimate, as there are many RTG sites that are not trustworthy. So how did Raging Bull turn out?
Blacklisted: owned by rogue operator
We found evidence in early 2017 that this casino was being operated on the sly by none other than one of the world's premier rogue casino operators, the Virtual Casino group. We checked with customer support at the casino itself and they confirmed that this was indeed true. While we previously recommended that people should treat this casino with caution, and in particular decline all its bonuses due to the win limits imposed on all of them, we now advise everyone to avoid this casino completely. The new operator's track record is one of over a decade of mistreating, deceiving, and defrauding players, so we have no hesitation in placing this casino on our blacklist.
Software and game selection
Raging Bull Casino is powered by Realtime Gaming, giving it a software suite that is full of games such as slots, table games, video poker, and parlour games. The process of getting registered at the site is pretty simple, as you submit your information via a form and select a username and password, similar to any other other RTG casino. It only took me a couple of minutes.
When it comes to playing at Raging Bull Casino, players can choose to get in on the action by either downloading and installing a piece of software onto your hard drive or through using an "instant play" web platform that lets you play through your web browser. Both methods are very similar in their presentation and in this case I initially opted to play using the web platform, as I already have way too many casinos installed on my computer.
The game selection at Raging Bull Casino is varied and plentiful, and if you have ever played at an RTG powered casino you will know the games available to be played. Video slots are the biggest selection of games, with the casino offering up dozens of titles. Many of these games seem to bleed together in terms of features and themes, but there are a few standouts for sure. Some of my favourites include the classic Aladdin's Wishes, the more modern and graphically impressive Orc vs Elf, and the potentially monster paying Triple Twisters. Progressive jackpot chasers will find the usual RTG networked progressives at this casino, including potential million dollar games such as Aztec's Millions and Jackpot Pinatas. There are also smaller local jackpots that can be won randomly on various games at the casino.
Table game players are adequately catered for, with an assortment of Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Red Dog, Caribbean Stud and many other titles. The big thing players will find at Raging Bull is that there are variations on these main games, which does bump up the library in terms of game numbers. A small selection of the casino's games are also available for play on mobile phones and devices.
Banking and customer support
Banking at Raging Bull Casino isn't the most diverse I have seen, but the casino does a decent job of handling payment methods that are popular amongst American players. Deposits are handled instantaneously and no matter which currency you use, it is converted to U.S. dollars. However in accordance with other casinos in this rogue group, payouts can take 5-10 business days to be accepted, then another couple of weeks to process. There is a weekly cap on withdrawals at Raging Bull Casino, with players only able to take out $2,500 per week, and there is also a maximum withdrawal limit on all bonuses at this casino which saves the casino from ever having to pay out large wins to players that take up bonus offers.
Customer Support is available through chat, telephone, and email, and I never personally had an issue ringing up help. I found the staff to be helpful, even if they did push their bonuses on me a bit. Still, I never had an issue with them being able to answer any of my questions, though they had no idea when I pointed out a security flaw in the casino's website. However, when raised directly with casino management, this security issue was addressed and rectified promptly.
Security, fairness, and responsible gaming
Login, play, and transacting on the Raging Bull website is fully encrypted via a standard SSL connection. The same is true for the downloadable PC software. This means that while you are connected to the casino or its website, your communication remains private and cannot be intercepted or tampered with by bad guys.
In terms of fairness, Raging Bull is par for the course for an American facing RTG casino - i.e. it does not reveal any theoretical payout numbers for its games nor does it publish any retrospective audited payout figures at the end of each month. As far as I can see, there are no responsible gaming controls to limit your gaming activity or the amount of time that you play.
Even if you're an American looking for a new RTG casino to try your luck at, you should give Raging Bull Casino a miss, as should anyone else that does not fit that description. Aside from the crooked ownership with a long history of stiffing winners, the bonus terms at this casino are designed to ensure that you cannot bank a large win, the weekly payment limits are on the smaller end of the scale, and the wait to receive a withdrawal is unacceptable.
