Review last updated – January 2013
We do NOT recommend playing with Rushmore casino.
Thepogg.com has no financial ties to Rushmore Casino. Rushmore Casino and all casino in the Rushmore group have been blacklisted at the thepogg.com due to the number of player complaints placed about them at the various 3rd party mediation websites and their recent withdrawal from communication with CasinoMeister.
Rushmore casino has been added to our Blacklist. For more information see Rushmore Blacklist.
Only one of the six reviewers that work regularly for this site holds an account with Rushmore Casino and they had a very negative experience.
Upon making their first deposit of $400 after having entered the promotional code for Rushmore’s sign-up bonus of 100% up to $400, the bonus was not added to their account. When our reviewer contacted Rushmore’s instant chat customer service facility they were informed that this bonus was not available for Neteller deposits. Our review proceeded to point to the terms and conditions for the sign-up bonus which clearly states - AS THE VERY FIRST CONDITION – that “This Bonus is valid for deposits made using all methods of payment.” According to support this makes no difference as the advert lists valid deposit methods for this bonus and suggested that our review emailed email@example.com and they might address this issue and add the bonus.
Assuming that this was a simple error and that Rushmore would quickly resolve the issue, our reviewer emailed the deposits department as requested. Given over 2 weeks, Rushmore’s Customer Service failed to even respond with a courtesy reply indicating that they were looking into the issue. At which point our reviewer decided to initiate a withdrawal and had to submit ID simply to withdraw their deposit despite never having placed a single wager with Rushmore and after having been misled into making an initial deposit.
However that is not where the story ends. Despite advertising that withdrawals are processed within 2-3 working days the withdrawal didn’t come through. After a week our reviewer once again contact Rushmore Casino’s live chat service and were told that there was a delay on their withdrawal and that they would have to email firstname.lastname@example.org to have the withdrawal processed. Upon doing that, it took Rushmore another 5 days to process the withdrawal and at no point did our reviewer receive an email to apologise for any of this.
Over and above this Rushmore Casino has recently been rogued at CasinoMeister, have a list of complaints as long as your arm at AskGamblers and also have complaints at Gambling Grumbles. This is not a casino you should trust.
Payout Speed and Banking 0/10
As reported above – it took our reviewer nearly two week and several emails to receive their requested withdrawal, and that’s without any play for their security department to check.

We recommend using Neteller for speed, convenience and security. To sign-up to Neteller click here.

Submit a Complaint
The Rushmore group are one of the worst cases of a good group gone bad in modern gambling. From their persistant slow pay issues, to withdrawing from engaging with 3rd party mediation all the way through to the very poor experience that our reviewer had with Rushmore customer services - there really aren't any good reasons to play with Rushmore.
