Dublinbet

25 replies • Last post

Ed - not sure if you have a review on this casino, Dublinbet, as it might be that because they have live games they fall between the lines of what your site covers. However it would be great to know any feedback good or bad that anyone has about this casino. Also what are the rules for USA players? Are they banned because they are 'online' although it is in fact a real casino as far as I can work out? Thanks as usual Smile

We don't and we have identified live casinos as a bit of a hole in our coverage at the moment. We have one of our guys going through our database and identifying which casinos that we have already reviewed have live play available (and also other stuff like mobile, poker, bingo, sports etc). And we will be adding more live casinos too.

As for DublinBet they are fairly well known and have been operating for a couple of years. They have a license from Gibraltar which is a good sign. I believe the games are live to the public as well as online, so you might see real people playing on the same table as you.

U.S. players are almost certainly banned from there, as they are from just about any Gibraltar regulated site. I like your thinking on it being a real casino vs a virtual one but I don't think that would stop the US government seizing bank accounts if it came to it!

Thanks Ed - would be great if you could do a 'live' online casino review list especially as a few of the biggies have live games as you mention but as you cannot see anything more than a lonely croupier broadcast from Latvia or Bratislava or Cambodia etc its difficult to have faith in how regulated decks or wheels really are Smile

Yes exactly, from what I have seen DublinBet seems one of the better ones as it is live from a real casino, not a studio.

Most of them will display something in the picture so that you know it is a live feed and not a recording - eg they might have CNN or BBC broadcasting on a visible screen in the background, or some other way of showing that is live. I guess you can always ask the dealer to scratch their nose or say something specific!

I think that would be neat. I am personally intrigued by the live online deal. I want to see how it works... but there probably aren't any options like that for us yankees, are there?

Off the top of my head I can think of the Sportbet / 5Dimes group. They have a live dealer and do accept Americans. Their withdrawal fees are a bit steep though.

I just took a peek at the Sportsbet site, and I read this:

"The Bonus Casino is another favorite which includes dozens of games with better odds than most online casinos. The Bonus Casino also offers fast paced Blackjack Tournament action where Blackjack fans can compete for amazing prizes."

I have to research more, but what the heck is a "bonus casino." I have never heard of that. Maybe you have to bet more? Maybe the "odds" are only a little "better odds than most online casinos?" Does anyone know about this:? CL-ED maybe? Wink

They have a kind of weird system there where they have 3 or 4 different casinos within the same site. The bonus casino is the one where they offer better than standard payouts on their games, it has nothing to do with "casino bonuses" that we talk about on here. They actually have some of the best video poker paytables and blackjack rules available online (i.e. they pay out at a higher percentage). From memory they have full pay jacks or better that is set to pay back 100% to players.

Hmmmm....that is really interesting, and please forgive my ignorance, CL-Ed, but how can they offer such great payouts? Does a player have to pay more or bet more? I can do my own further research, too, but I have been all over the internet tonight (having one of those ADHD internet visits tonight, lol), and I haven't read the fine print or researched further. If the payouts are that much better, I may have to, though. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention. I may have to check it out when I plan my next deposit.

Taking a little break right now after cashing out at Lucky Red. Feels so good to cash out, once in a while, instead of just depositing, lol.

The payouts are good because you can't use a casino bonus while playing in that part of the casino, and I guess they are relying on players not being able to play perfect strategy over time. Also I think their core target market is mainly sports bettors who are probably only casual casino players on the side.

Ed - that kind of list would be great. I will take a look at Sportbet now. I like Dublinbet so far. The cam is not such good quality but the games are genuine or they are paying one f of a lot of actors Smile I think its great if you want to play at "real casino speed" as I do, but players will have to wait a bit during rush hour in Dublin......

Hi yellowboots, good point I had not thought of that waiting like in a real casino. Time to pull out a beer and relax while you watch them perhaps?

Sportbet is for U.S. players. You have far more options, and I would stick with the name brands like you usually do.

Indeed Ed - sometimes there is enough time for a b-b-q not just a beer Joking But its all part of playing the game. The obvious advantage is that you are able to focus on what's going on because you don't have the usual loud distractions that you have in a real casino. Perhaps more casinos will follow this idea in the future, hope so. Some of the german casinos like http://www.spielbank-wiesbaden.de have great websites and seem to offer some kind of online play but not sure as my german is zilch? Smile

Hmm I took a look at that site and I can't see any online play. They do have an English flag which I clicked but it only seems to change half the text to English.

Hi Folks,

I stumbled across this thread about us here at dublinbet.com so hope you don't mind me crashing in on it.

I'm afraid we don't accept US players Sad but you're right to point out that we do stream from a live casino, in Dublin, and have been doing so since 2005. This makes us different from most other 'live' casinos who stream from a studio in that you can play at the same table as someone who has walked in off the street. Therefore our results are 100% transparent and genuine.

Our gaming license is actually from Isle of Man and not Gibraltar, in case anyone is interested.

Any other questions please feel free to ask and I'll keep an eye out and respond asap.

Thanks, Paul

Welcome to the thread Paul, good to have an inside man join the conversation! I like Dublinbet, it seems to me as a player that its a well run place. Also as you will see above Ed is considering putting together a list of 'live' online casinos, so what is your opinion on the whole sector of live casinos? Are you the only ones who offer the full, truly regulated casino experience rather than just a croupier and cards set up somewhere unsurprisingly distant from any realm of true enforcement of gaming rules designed to protect the player? I think some of these despite appearances and my caustic words are probably legit, Smart Casino for one seems to look ok but who knows? Perhaps in the months to come with the help of people like ED and yourself all this will become much clearer to the average player. Finally I would like to ask for your comments on another topic in here (under a different thread). Can you tell us as an industry insider why Dublinbet like most other online casinos only offer bonuses which must be played through a large number of times before they can be turned into hard currency? It seems to be a fairly logical thought that players with even a small knowledge of gaming will know about the house edge and that thus playing the bonus through successfully multiple times is extremely hard. Surely it will be a much better approach to give loyal players a % back of the money they have played through the casino, whether they win or lose at the end of the day/week/month? Gaming being what it is I would hazard a guess that a very high % of the money given back would pretty soon go straight back to the casino anyhow. Maybe this approach would be unworkable for reasons not apparent to the general player like me, but some fresh thinking in the bonus area by some growing casino groups in the sector would be great for loyal clients as it plain boring to run into the same offers each time from every competitor in the market. What do you think? All the best.

Ok thank you Ed for the response. As I once told you I am very suspicious about everything and everyone, that's why I am such a detail-oriented Smile

Yes it is, It is crucial I think... I never ever trust online casinos, even if they're rated top! I suggest everyone does so too.
