Good Casinos Gone Bad

6 replies • Last post

I know it sounds like the title of an adult video series, but I have a question for you out there.

Have you ever seen a good casino go bad? I know they are out there, as I had played at English Harbour before they suddenly dropped off the globe (reportedly without paying their bills).

What good casinos have you seen go wild?

I am sure CL-Ed will have some answers for this one. I am too new to recall any "casinos gone bad," but I WAS highly saddened when Slots Galore simply disappeared. Sad

It happens. First that springs to mind is the ultra slow paying Rushmore Group. They really were very good a year or two back. But now its like getting blood from a stone when you withdraw from them.

Most Rival casinos started out ok or at least legitimate, then began banning anyone that won and eventually half of the white label "rent-a-casinos" ended up closing and being returned to Rival to run themselves.

Is Rushmore the largest group you know of going bad, Ed? I would be absolutely shocked to see a huge firm just tank it, but I guess anything is possible.

I think this can happen with all casinos in the world and even with people. Sometimes, we're well of life but the misfortune hits us at the door and we cannot fulfil our commitments. Same can happens to the casinos. A casino is a company... will honour their commitments while they have financial liquidity. Without financial liquidity how can they pay quickly? Well, I think that is what is happening with Rushmore, but who really knows for sure?

A solid point noctipaulo. I think that adversity can definitely test our morals. I would hope that a casino group would have more checks and balances as it would have more people involved than just one owner, but then again... who knows?

Agreed - this can happen, especially with the casinos that accept U.S. players that are subject to funds seizures and payment processors disappearing from time to time.

In my experience a casino rarely ever changes its standards under the same ownership. They are either set up to be run properly by honest people or they are not.
