Big Dollar Casino Review

Review last updated - June 2017

OVERVIEW | 3.24/10


Big Dollar are one of 7 casino that make up the Grand Prive group. Grand Prive previously worked with Microgaming, but shifted to BetOnSoft software when Microgaming pulled out of the US market.

TRUSTWORTHINESS | 1/10


BigDollar are part of the Grand Prive Group which now lists its ownership as Genesys Technologies NV. There are indications that these groups shared ownership long before they publicly stated this and at the point where we questioned a rep from the Genesys group regarding term changes that were mirrored across both groups it was implied that if we published this information they would be likely to pursue legal action against this site.

The Grand Prive group have been a contentious issue amongst the gambling community for a long time now. They started out with Microgaming software and there were accusations of unethical marketing practices intended to ensure they paid their affiliate business partners less than they were due even back then. When Microgaming pulled out of the US market, the Grand Prive group jumped ship over night to BetOnSoft and changed their regulator at the same time.

When they shifted software platforms/regulators, firstly they don't seem to have given any notice to the groups they were working with and more significantly, when they moved away from Microgaming they dropped the Microgaming affiliate platform that they had been using while leaving their casinos open and left all of their affiliate partners with no recourse for the substantial lost earnings that resulted. For this reason they are Rogued at Affiliate Guard Dog.

Further down the line Grand Prive restarted their affiliate program and have tried to cast the blame for their actions on Microgaming. They seem to have offered to make right affiliate losses, but only partly, compensating a percentage of every $ earned rather than the full amount.

The Grand Prive group have also been unresponsive to player complaints at other portals.

Closing Thoughts


Between the questionable history of the properties owned by this group and their non-responsive approach to player complaints there's simply no way we'd recommend players use this casino.
