Casino La Vida Casino

Overview

Review last updated – May 2016

Casino La Vida – the sister casino to RedFlush – are one of the two casino making up the Club Red Gaming group, one of the smaller independent Microgaming casinos groups left on the market.

Trustworthiness

 - 3 / 10

Only one of the six reviewers who work regularly for this site holds an account with the Fortune Lounge group. They report positive experiences.

In the last year the Fortune Lounge group has aggressively expanded and taken over a substantial proportion of the the Microgaming only casino providers still on the market, including the BrightShare, WagerShare, RedReturns and the ReferBack groups of casino (listed by affiliate programs).

None of the groups that make up this super group of Microgaming casino have a spotless record when it comes to the discussion of player complaint and treatment of their affiliate partners, but some of the groups have a better record than others.

At the present time it's not clear exactly how this amalgamation of casino groups is going to function, whether the individual groups will continue to function autonomously and form their own policies regarding the discussion of player complaints or whether there will be one unified policy applied to all casinos in the group.

For the time being, while we will detail the player/affiliate issue with all groups within this amalgamation in one entry, we will continue to treat the groups individually until such time that we see evidence that they are sharing management policies.

While doing the background research for this review, we came across several instances wherein the Fortune Lounge casinos failed to respond to attempts made by various websites to mediate player disputes.

Red Flush casino are part of the Red Returns group of casinos.

We cannot currently monitor the terms and conditions for Casino La Vida due to the design of their website.

Only casinos carrying ThePOGG Deposit Guarantee Seal can score higher than 8/10.
