Thunderbolt Casino - South Africa facing

9 replies • Last post

Hi Guys,

I am new to the site so a BIG howdy goes out to you all Surprized)

I was a big fan of online gaming years ago at a well known South African brand called Piggs Peak. They closed their doors in 2011 and I have not been active online since then. However I received a sms from the brand suggesting I sign up.

I have looked at their site and all seems fine. Is there anything I should look out for?

I would sincerely appreciate your feedback guys.

Best Regards
Dennis

Hey Guts99. I haven't heard anything about those guys, but it appears they are a Microgaming powered casino, licensed in Malta, and eCOGRA certified from their site. Those facts would lead me to believe that they are halfway decent, but like I said, I haven't heard anything about them so I can't say.

Welcome guts99.

You're got the wrong info there slim, or you and I are looking at different sites. The one I can see is a Realtime Gaming casino, which my first reaction to is always caution.

Do you have any idea how or where they got your mobile phone number from guts99? It seems odd to me that a previously unknown casino would be in possession of your phone number unless they bought or stole it from another casino.

Hi Guys
I also used to play on Piggs Peak, they were a very reputable casino but due to the restrictions of online gaming in South Africa they bailed, they were scared of annoying the South African authorities and TAX man lol.
I have not tried to see if they have reentered our market.
I can recommend the following for South African Players
Casino Tropez
Silversands Casino

my girlfriend plays at silversands poker and silversands casino, I'm personally not a fan at all,
If you want a nice, trustworthy and fair play tech casino I would say either fly, omni or sports interaction, for w multi platform next casino and casino luck are excellent for us South African players

Good advice Cnichas, Fly Casino and Omni Casino are two of the better Playtech casinos (the majority of them are pretty ordinary in my opinion) and Casino Luck is a great multi-platform site.

Yes, fly and omni currently best playtech casinos. Fast payments to ewallets + lot of bonuses and promotions(each day of the week there is a bonus!)

Piggs peak? never heard about it and by the amount of casino lists all over the google with various real or expired bonuses, that have I read for my past life, is that fact quite strange to me ...
