Trustworthiness

 - 0 / 10

Stakes Casino have been unresponsive to player complaints logged at this site and therefore attain Not Recommended status here.

Stakes are part of a network that have engaged in retroactively changing their terms and conditions to restrict a game after two players had significant wins that they did not want to pay. One of the players in question presented evidence to demonstrate that the term had not been in place at the time they played. In response to this evidence the operator looked to discredit, suggesting that it was not reliable. However, we then checked our own ChangeDetection.com report and found that not only had the player been correct when they asserted that the term had not been in place at the time they played but that the terms document had been updated at the time the change was made to contain a 'Last Updated' date that was significantly before the date of change (the update was made on the 27th of November but the terms document was changed to state that the last update occurred on the 1st of September).

Jackpot Knights - another operator on the Danguad Limited license - have refused to pay a player based on what they claim in a violation of their maximum bet rule. However upon examination there was on betting combination on the game in question that could have resulted in that bet size. When we challenged the operator about this they claimed that the player used the double feature and that's how the bet size was listed at the value it was. The problem with this explanation is that the game in question does not have a double feature. When asked about this the operator became non-responsive.

An employee of an operator on the Danguad Limited license has posted an abusive message on our Facebook page.

An operator in this group has been found accepting deposits and wagers from a country that they cannot issue payment to - effectively free rolling players by allowing player from that country to lose without the possibility of ever winning.

We consider this group to be fundamentally dishonest in their practices and would strongly advise all players to choose an alternative casino to play with.

(-1) Progressive Jackpot Monthly Withdrawal Cap -
Terms and Conditions state that winnings of €10,000 or greater will be divided into monthly withdrawals of €5,000 and there is no mention of progressive jackpots being excluded from this - other casinos operated by Danguad have confirmed that their withdrawal limits also apply to progressives and so logically it would appear that the same rule is being applied at Stakes - 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.
