Betway Casino – Blacklisted and Rogue Casino
Betway Casino is one of several online casinos owned by the Palace Group who operated the blacklisted affiliate program Wagershare, which has now joined Referback to form Buffalo Partners.
The Palace Group are also responsible for condoning by their inaction, the spamming of the search engines, by a group of webmasters, who were and are currently hacking websites.
With the individuals responsible redirecting the hacked sites to portals promoting the casino brands owned by the Palace Group. For further details please see this thread on Casinomeister here.
Furthermore the owners of Betway Casino which they acquired in 2011, owed OCR over £3,000 in marketing costs, yet see fit to spend over £10 million on a European Television advertising campaign. The marketing costs owing to OCR was only paid after several years and once a successful negative online campaign against Buffalo Partners took place.
Other online products operated by the Betway Brand include an online sportsbook and an online poker room which is part of the Microgaming Poker Network. All should be avoided by players.
If this is not enough to raise plenty of red flags, Betway Casino also operates a withdrawal limit, meaning players can only receive winnings of up to a maximum of £/$/€4,000 a week. Despite the fact that Betway have enough cash to launch an expensive television advertising campaign.
To be quite blunt, the above is shocking behaviour from a Microgaming Operator and one that is eCOGRA accredited nonetheless. But in my own personal experience in dealing with the owners of Betway, I am not surprised.
The management of Betway Casino also seemingly operate a policy whereby they refuse to discuss issues in the popular casino forums frequented by players.
Players should avoid Betway Casino and their associated products at all costs!
