Carnival: Not Recommended
Carnival is not recommended!
Players from United Kingdom are welcome at Carnival casino.
The Bwin/Party group extend to cover Bwin and Party casino alongside the Cashcade group that is made of up several WagerWorks casinos like At The Races and Get Minted and the iGlobal Media group that owns several Playtech casinos.
Historically these groups have been consistent in their refusal to discuss player complaints with 3rd party dispute mediation services (like ThePOGG). This has resulted in a poor reputation with these services. However in late 2017/early 2018 we have managed to establish a line of communication with this group and we have been assured all issues will now be resolved. As such we've elected to allow a probationary period where Carnival casino's Trustworthiness score will improve by one point for every six months without further issues to a maximum of 8.
Sadly, as of May 2020 this group has reverted to being non-responsive to player complaints submitted to this service.

Carnival casino offer the standard Playtech comp point program where you earn 1 comp point for every £10 wagered and can convert 100 comp points into £1, with the redemption rates improving as you move up the VIP ladder.
The extended Bwin/Party group do not seem to be able to decided what their position on the management of player complaints is. Year to year we get totally different responses, varying from enthusiastic cooperation to total stone wall. Until there is some consistency in approach this is not a group we can recommend to players.
