Kudos Casino (New RTG - Good)

18 replies • Last post

Hi, CL Members,

I found another New RTG casino - Kudos Casino Smile

This casino show at the bottom that they are part of iNetBet Casino.

I didn't check in details, but, the promotions are quite different from iNetBet.
And probably, they are very new, so, there are still very few of promotions.

I didn't register in yet. If you have some time, it is worth browsing around.

Good Luck Smile

It looks like they have a bit of a different approach from iNetBet, but they should be pretty good in terms of reliability and management, given the same team operating the sites.

I think I am going to sign up here a bit later and will let you know what I think.

I decided to try this one out. I registered and played on a FREE15 chip I found on the web at "Casino Cash Journey" for new members only. I got a fair amt of play on this at a minimum .25 wager, and then deposited $30 when this was gone. I continued to play with a fairly low wager, had one good return doubling my deposit but then lost it, as I normally do!!!. I found that the games loaded fairly well although I initially had to spin a few times before the music and full sounds kicked in. I did have to go to the home page to find live chat and inquired about the 150% cashback for a first day of deposits. How it works is that i have to wait until monday for deposits from friday -sunday. If this had been on a thursday I would have my 150% credit on friday. NOW, I could also make additional deposits today before a certain time EST, and also get a 150% cashback on monday on those BUT I wont qualify for the cashback until my balance is less than $10 from my deposits today. Additionally I will still also qualify for 15% weekly cashback and 10% monthly cashback credit on that first deposit and a 25% daily cash back on future deposits. The wagering is 10x on the cashback and the limit is 20x for withdrawal. It really doesnt sound like a bad approach. No super high wagering requirements for what they give you! Also, customer service is friendly without the canned answers that I have already come to hate!! Customer support is apparently in the UK and I think that all transactions are in or converted to US$, making it super US friendly I suppose. Finally, if you play the 15free your games are more limited than when you make a deposit. And I would guess that there are still more if you download , although I havent done this yet. I will update any further experience with this new casino, but I think I like it so far!! (ok, I wrote so much that I think this should count as a review!! Wink. )

Update to state that my 150% welcome cashback was in my casino account immediately on Monday am ( It might have even been after midnight but I am not sure) and I also received an email stating that monthly cashback (only $3.00 for one deposit) was placed in my account this morning after midnight. SO, the cashback is automatic and prompt. you dont have to go to customer service to ask for it.

Actually, I had a negative experience with Kudos which was mostly my fault, but at the same time, they were a bit sneaky.
I had been awarded my "end of the month" bonus of $14. I really didn't know why but saw it under my balance and on the first slot spin, I hit $400.
(BTW, I no longer play bonuses at any casinos because of the play thru requirements and "many" conditions).
I contacted customer service and asked them if there was a maximum cash out or conditions and they said $280 was the max. No biggie, so I withdrew that amount only for it to be declined a few hours later. When I inquired, the second Customer service rep said I needed to wager the $14 ten times for a total of $140. I asked him if there were any other restrictions or issues and he said no. I wagered the $140 and still had enough to withdraw the max of $280. However, a few hours later, I noticed that not only had it been declined again but I had no money at all in my account. A note said my maximum AMOUNT PER SPIN exceeded the terms and conditions as it was $3.50 per spin and I did $5 so all winnings were voided.
Had I known that and if they had told me, I could have still wagered the required play through of $3.50 per spin instead of $5 and had enough funds to withdraw the $280.
Even though I will accept that I did not read all the T and C, and should not have relied on customer service to be accurate, I still think it's pretty sneaky on their part.
It's not about the money, but the principle that they got my money on a technicality. Did it really benefit them ? I closed my account and will do business with casinos that are little more ethical. Once again, I don't see where Kudo's introduced a new bonus system as you still need to read ALL the terms and conditions. It was another reminder of why I never play with bonuses.
Draw your own conclusions and thanks for letting me share.

Yeah I totally sympathise with you on that jimebear. I have been saying for a long time that casinos that want to institute bet limits need to program it into the software so you can't break the rules accidentally. But I suspect that the majority want to keep it up their sleeves as a get out jail free card.

without a doubt....they will not "volunteer" any information that could prevent them from making every nickel they can. But it gave me just as much pleasure to close my account as I have tons of really good casinos to choose from and certainly don't need those kind. Funny thing is that I was within the limit as I only played one dollar and hit the $400 on my first spin. Then I stopped to inquire about the max. cash out and EVENTUALLY told I needed to wager $140. No big deal so I just did $5 spins to hurry up the process since I couldn't cash out more than $280. That's why I never do bonuses and should have inquired BEFORE ever making a spin. They won't last long at this rate and sorry they are affiliated with InetBet.

That is even worse. The whole idea of that policy is to prevent people from claiming a bonus then wagering high amounts in an attempt to make a quick big win, then lower their bet size to complete the wagering requirements. You have done the opposite and you still get pinged.

I hear stories like Jimbeam's all the time. On one hand, the answer always comes back that "you should have read the T&C," but I would counter that casino T&C should be in protection of their customers, not riddled with sneaky stipulations so that they can empty your balance every time you bet 5 dollars on a game that in fact lets you bet 5$ as maximum. So excuse us for thinking 5$ was the max bet. And I get the software is sold to the casinos so it's hard to program each casino's specification into the software. But, come on, changing the max bet can't be that hard a thing to program.

Ah, this casino seems to be not very good with their bonus policies.

If the finance team is the same with one of iNetBet USD casino, the withdrawal should be very quick within a few hours, though.

I think that I will play in iNetBet USD Casino from time to time.

About the max bet per spin, yeah, it is a little tricky...

Among RTGS, all affiliates of the Jackpot Capital, Slotocash, Intertops set the max bet up to $10 and the actual limit per slot spin is set at $5 or $6.25 which is the minimum bet per line x 50.

Therefore, players don't have to worry about violating their max bet policy, except playing card/table games.

But, as I remember, iNetBet Casino set the max withdrawal up to 20% of Deposit and the minimum deposit for some match bonuses is $10. And the actual max bet in slot is set at $5. So, players can start to bet over 20% of deposit when they are winning good. I don't think that iNetBet (and Kudo) is doing it with a bad intention, but, yes, it is not very clear.

The way I see it is it is now 2016. We have computers that can pilot a spacecraft to mars and land remote controlled robots there that send us back pictures. We can get close up photos of Pluto. We have cars that can drive themselves and palm sized phones that put the entire collected knowledge of humanity at our fingertips wherever we go.

Surely it can't be that hard to program some casino software to not allow you to bet over the limit imposed by a bonus that you claimed until such time as the bonus terms have been met? I thought this would be an interesting thing to ask an experienced computer programmer and software developer, so I found one: me. And my estimate of the difficulty of doing such a thing hovers in the area between "not very difficult" and "simple".

I can't explain why they don't do it. I suspect it is because it allows them to cancel wins like in jimebear's case and/or because they don't want to pay someone to do it. But if that truly is the reason then they aren't very smart. I reckon the added up savings in time and labour costs across all casinos that use a brand of software of dealing with complaints and dissatisfied customers, plus the negative effects of bad publicity, would far outweigh the amount they save in paying out in the long run. If the bonus rules and limitations are instituted in the software then no-one can accidentally or deliberately break them and no-one can be surprised and disappointed. Its a no-brainer.

I have this feeling that, the main aim of the T&C is not to protect themselves from harmful players but to pay as less often as possible...so I don't think they will update their casinos in order to pay this kind of players.

Yeah, especiall I saw very ridiculous and aggressive clauses in some rogue casinos, something like " The casino has authorities to close down the player's account who committed behaviors in order to make the image of a rogue casino out of us" Smile

Hi, CL-Ed,

I think that it should be not difficult at all even though I am lack of the technical knowledge.
And I get curious a little, too.

The job is like to co-relate Bonus and Bet Size to make the individual casinos to adjust up to their policy ??
And it should be the RTG developer's job, not the casino's. And probably, casinos are not entitled to develop this kind of functions, either ... I don't know

So, some RTGs - Slotocachs, Jackpot Capitials, etc.- set the max bet of all slots below the max betting amount by their policy. I think that these group of casinos are doing what they can(?). Of course, this will protect them from players' huge wins, simultaneously Smile

RTG only changed their cover since late last year. This is convenient, but not showing the information of volatility of slots (I am not sure if this information is very meaningful, though, anyway )

I think that RTG is investing as least as possible. And this least investment is to lead to higher costs of individual casinos, as you pointed out. They just sell the software whoever pays the money.

No wonder why there have been so many rogue casinos in RTG.

You mentioned that they are a part of Inetbet casino, which is actually quite odd- Inetbet used to allow players from my country and then at some point they changed that. But at Kudos casino I had decent time with free bonus for new players. I don't think I would deposit there, this seems to be a new RTG casino and I don't really trust RTG..Too many casinos with bad rep. from this software.

Did you make a withdrawal with the free bonus from Kudo ? How long did it take for you ?
