2023’s Guide to Blacklisted Casinos
The following sites have been blacklisted as they have not met our strict set of criteria, and have consistently failed to deliver a fair service to their players. Remember, this list of blacklisted online casinos is updated regularly so it’s always worth checking back to make sure you’re in the know about the sites you should avoid.
GoWild Casino has been added to our blacklist because of predatory terms and conditions that have been revealed. The casino makes it hard to win without violating these arbitrary terms, which give the casino complete freedom to determine bonus abuse, fraudulent activity, and more. Furthermore, GoWild also has rules that discourage you from changing wager amounts. Because of this, we have blacklisted GoWild and urge players to bet at reputable gaming sites.
The initial report into GoWild’s practices was conducted by our sister site LCB, and that report can be found here.
VegasCasino.io has been found to be offering pirated games to their customers. Needless to say, this is a major no-no, as it means that the math for the games can be altered to make them unfair. It’s also stealing from legitimate game developers, who put in time and money into developing quality games. We had some major doubts about VegasCasino because of their lack of a gaming license, and unfortunately, it looks like those concerns were founded. We urge all players to avoid playing at this bogus online casino.
In June our sister site LCB caught Burnbet using pirated games, which are stolen from Novomatic, Aristocrat, and EGT. This is awful, and making matters even worse is the fact that the casino made it clear that they aren’t concerned about these games, and instead of immediately pulling the games, indicated that they’ll change platforms down the line. Because of this, we highly recommend you avoid playing at this bad online casino.
Boombet Casino is a site that looks like it’s pretty decent on the surface, but looking further into the group’s dealings, we’ve found that the site is predatory. There are multiple baked in terms that limit the amount players can withdraw, high fees for withdrawal, and more. Making matters worse is the fact that the casino has delayed payout of legitimate winnings. We’ve blacklisted this site and urge players to avoid playing here.
Casino1 is a newer online betting site, but it has already proven itself as being a horrible casino. The site has been found to be offering pirated Net Ent games, which is both unethical and dangerous for players. Using rigged software is one of the fastest ways to work your way onto the blacklist, and we urge everybody to avoid playing at Casino1.
Lake Palace is a casino that originally started out pretty decent, but has devolved into a cesspool of slow payouts, poor customer service, and predatory terms. Interestingly, many of these problems appeared after the group moved from Microgaming software to Saucify (rebranded from BetonSoft in 2014), which is substantially cheaper to license. We believe the group may be having financial difficulties, and because of this we have blacklisted this site and urge you to look elsewhere for places to play.
Le Bon Casino is tied in with several other bad sites like Silver Oak, Royal Ace, and Planet 7, and has had a long history of poor support and extremely slow payments, which can take in excess of a month to be processed. As a result, we have blacklisted Le Bon Casino, and can’t tell you enough to avoid this predatory site.
Casino Grand Bay comes onto the blacklist with a reputation for not paying players the money that they rightfully won from the site. This was not always the case though, as the site at one point offered Microgaming software and had a solid history of treating players well. This changed once Microgaming shut down their US operations, as the casino was forced to adapt to inferior software. For some reason, this began a downward spiral for Casino Grand Bay, as they began stiffing players and providing bad customer support.
You’d be crazy to play at Crazy Luck Casino, as the casino has had numerous instances of slow and non-payments of winnings. Making things even worse are several reports of poor customer service, as reps flat out refuse to respond to requests, meaning that you’re likely throwing away your money by depositing at this rogue casino. There are many better sites to play at for American players, and we’d recommend you check those out.
Wixiplay.io is added to the blacklist by the Wizard himself for cheating and ignoring withdrawals. "How can they cheat with 'provably fair' games?" you might ask. For the answer to that question and the full story of this blacklisting, please visit Wixiplay.io Blacklisting.
Interesting fact: Uranus is the seventh planet in the solar system. Well, Planet 7 Casino certainly puts the word “anus” to correct use with their tactics. The casino has a terrible reputation for their payout speeds and management, having left several players in the lurch after trying to claim their legitimate winnings. Because of this, we have made the decision to warn players to avoid playing at this site, as it’s likely that you're going to see your winnings either severely delayed or outright denied.
