Begado: Closed

Top Casinos: United Kingdom

Begado Casino

Players from United Kingdom are welcome at Begado casino.

Overview

Review last updated – June 2015

As of July 2015 Begado casino have closed.

The only venue in the AffActive group to use NuWorks software, Begado are part of a group that has a history of non-engagement with mediators when disputes occur and a historically high level of complaints.

Trustworthiness

 - 0 / 10

After doing the background research on AffActive, we did not feel comfortable asking any of our reviewers to play with this group.

The most damning justification for not sending out reviewers to the AffActive properties that turned up during our background research of this group was the multiple connections between this group and Gold VIP Club. Gold VIP Club have historically been one of the blackest of the black rogue operations and involved in just about every sort of dodgy behaviour. When talking to various customers, the AffActive casinos have at various points stated that the customer was through to Gold VIP Club support, handed out Gold VIP Club email addresses and in one instance a customer who clicked on an AffActive venue live support on an AffActive casino website ended up with the Gold VIP Club chat window popping open. An AffActive representative has dismissed all of this as technical errors due to sharing the same software provider as Gold VIP Club, but this seems highly implausible as no other RealTime Gaming venues have had similar issues.

Beyond this the AffActive venues have the most extensive list of complaints that have not been responded to that we’ve ever seen.

Alongside generating a huge volume of complaints and failing to respond to them, the AffActive group have been involved in confiscating a player’s winnings based on a vague ‘spirit of the bonus’ term.

There have also been several instances where this group have issued bad cheques to players which have resulted in the player’s bank issuing charges that the casino refuse to take responsibility for.

In late 2014 a situation came to light where an affiliate was found to be hacking into other sites and posting their gambling links on these sites without the owners knowledge or permission. This activity is clearly illegal and unethical. The majority of casinos that were receiving traffic from this affiliate closed the affiliate's accounts upon finding out what the affiliate was doing, however some casinos chose to ignore that the traffic coming from this affiliate was generated via illegal activity and continue to work with this individual.

Maybe all the connections that AffActive have to Gold VIP Club are nothing more than unfortunate coincidence, but given their other issues, we would suggest not taking a risk on this group.
