DrakeÂ Casino was established in 2012 and runs on Betsoft software whilst also offering some Arrow’s Edge games. Currently they are licensed by Curacao eGaming. Their web design uses a palette of red, grey, black and white and the background features a lightly textured appearance. Their logo takes the ace of spades as its base.
Trustworthiness - 2/10
Gossip Slots Casino are part of a group that have continued accepting UK players without a UKGC license.
(-2)Drake include a dormancy clause that we find to be of a predatory nature and as such have been listed as Not Recommended. The casino states as item 26 of its Terms and Conditions: "If a Player's account remains unused for a period of six months, the Company reserves the right to close the account and confiscate any funds remaining in the account. Accounts that are inactive for six months or longer will in any event be charged a monthly administration fee of $10." The administration fee is perfectly acceptable but the confiscation of funds by the casino is in no way acceptable.
(-1)Drake Casino support assures us that they accept UK players despite the fact that they cannot legally do so without a UKGC license.
Drake Casino state in Term 25 of their Terms and Conditions that their maximum payout per week is $5000 and they do not preclude their progressive slots from this term - this is not acceptable.

Drake Casino are Not Recommended at ThePOGG as a result of their dormancy clause which is of a predatory nature.The casino states as item 26 of its Terms and Conditions: "If a Player's account remains unused for a period of six months, the Company reserves the right to close the account and confiscate any funds remaining in the account. Accounts that are inactive for six months or longer will in any event be charged a monthly administration fee of $10." The administration fee is perfectly acceptable but the confiscation of funds by the casino is in no way acceptable. Please not that Drake Casino's support assures us that they accept UK players despite the fact that they cannot legally do so without a UKGC license. The institution of a maximum payout per week of $5000 is not fair to players when progressive jackpots are offered by the casino. Bonuses offered by this operator cannot be claimed by inhabitants of: Israel, India, Lebanon, Romania, Poland and Russia.
