Dukes Status: Not Recommended

Dukes Casino

Overview

Review last updated – October 2016

Dukes casino offer Microgaming games and run on the Progress Play platform.

Trustworthiness

 - 3 / 10

One of our reviews holds an account with a Progress Play casino which was opened for testing purposes. They report positive experiences.

(-1)We find Dukes Casino's dormancy clause for UK players to be predatory as it does not state that before beginning dormancy proceedings every effort will be made to contact the relevant player. Accounts held by UK players are declared dormant after only 6 months of inactivity. We also find their maintenance fee for dormant accounts held by UK players to be unacceptably high at a rate of 10% of the account balance per month.

(-1) Progressive Jackpot Monthly Withdrawal Cap -
Dukes Casino limit withdrawals for winner of Progressive Jackpots to £30,000 per month - since it is the software provider and not the casino that provides the winnings for Progressive Jackpots ThePOGG can see no legitimate reasons for implementing this policy - remember some Progressive Jackpots can pay out hundreds of thousands.

For references see Progress Play Group Player Issues

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

Licensing

 - 10 / 10

Dukes hold the following gambling licenses :

  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. Dukes currently use IBAS. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Malta Gaming Authority - In our experience the MGA is the best regulatory authority in terms of the management of player complaints. Their complaints team is open and cooperative in the discussion of player issues and we've managed to resolve a number of credible player issues working with the MGA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.

Closing Thoughts

Casinos running on the Progress Play platform have what we consider to be a predatory dormancy clause for UK players - declared dormant after 6 months and then subject to a 10% of account balance maintenance fee per month. In their Bonus Policy section it states that players from some countries will be subject to increased wagering on bonuses (100x rather than 50x) but players must contact Customer Support for details - it would be more helpful if the restricted countries were just clearly stated for players in the Bonus Policy section in the interests of transparency. Furthermore the three day withdrawal pending status could encourage some players to reverse withdrawals that they would not if the withdrawal processing time was lower. Be aware of this if you are a player that falls into this category. It should be noted that this casino institutes a maximum monthly withdrawal of £30,000 for progressive jackpot winner - not acceptable in our eyes since the casino does not actually provide the winnings for progressives - the software provider does - there is no reason for them not to pay out the whole amount at once.
