Not Recommended/Approved Online Casinos
Fortunately, the majority of online casinos and the people behind them are trustworthy. We wouldn't be in this business otherwise and we pride ourselves on not working with dodgepot casinos who are likely to screw over any visitors we send their way. We also don't want to get screwed over ourselves if the casino owes us advertising fees.
The following list of 'not recommended' casinos is a very mixed bag and just because you see a casino listed here, does not necessarily mean that it is a bad or unethical casino. Still, if they're on this list then we have decided not to put our reputation or approval behind the casino for one reason or another. Slowly paid or completely refused cashouts, broken contractual agreements, failure to respond to enquiries, outright theft of funds and excessive documentation requests are just a few of the reasons why an online casino could find itself 'not recommended' or 'not approved' by casino-download.
Take this list for what it is - information about online casinos that exist and might or might not be okay. Feel free to give them a try but be warned - if something goes horribly wrong then we won't be in a position to help as we do not work with any 'not recommended' casinos.
Play safe - start with our homepage to find trustworthy online casinos approved by casino-download.com.

3Dice Casino has been online since 2006 and for the first decade or so, 3Dice was a strictly download-only casino with no instant-play/browser or mobile version. Then everything flipped on its head. 3Dice discontinued its download casino and became an instant-play/mobile casino.

Aladdin's Gold Casino
Aladdin's Gold's games are from Realtime Gaming. The no-download version of Aladdin's Gold is Mac-compatible. Not a casino to be trusted.

Betfair is a betting site incorporating an online casino, poker rooms, live dealers, bingo games and online betting exchange.

Betfred is a UK based betting company. As well as its online casino and betting shops, Betfred also offer online poker, lotto, live dealers, bingo and virtual sports. Our dealings with Betfred left a rather nasty taste in our mouth and we won't be taking another bite any time soon.

Previously named Victor Chandler, BetVictor is an online casino, poker site and sports bookmaker (online and land-based). It's also a hugely unpopular company with advertisers/affiliates so don't expect to see them recommended on casino-download.com or any other legitimate/honest review portal.

We worked with BGO for a number of years, putting up with occasional (but lengthy) late payments but in 2019, BGO finally pulled the plug on what remained of their integrity. Failing to pay future-due revenue to advertisers and affiliates in what appears a 'cash grab' does not bode well for BGO's finances or integrity. Our advice: stay away from BGO - close any existing accounts and remove your identification details.

Another one to avoid from the same wrong 'uns running Aladdin's Gold. Buzzluck used to be trustworthy (and was recommended at casino-download.com) until new owners screwed it up almost overnight.

Available for PC, Mac and mobile devices, Foxy accept players in most countries but is most known in the United Kingdom. Foxy is regularly advertised and promoted on UK TV, which is as close as we ever want to get to this brand again.

Gala is a well known UK gambling brand most famous for casino and bingo, both online and land-based. Gala Casino added an extra dimension of gambling and risk to our dealings with them by keeping us guessing as to when they would bite us in the ass. So no, we're not fans of Gala, a view shared in general by online casino websites that's had the displeasure of working with them.

There's a phrase, "Greed is a bottomless pit" and Genting Online Casino appear to have jumped all the way to the bottom of that pit of greed. Breach of numerous contracts and confiscating funds has led to a complete ROGUE STATUS for Genting Casino. Genting online casino is now rogued at Casino-Download.com for ethical and professional reasons. Any links to Genting Casino will instead be redirected to a trusted casino available where you live.

Part of The Rank Group, Grosvenor is a UK gambling brand with land-based casinos and bingo clubs. Grosvenor Casino only accept players from the United Kingdom, Ireland and Gibraltar. We've met some nice people at Grosvenor Casino but unfortunately we are not in a position to promote them following a change of unethical advertising/marketing policies (closing accounts and retaining/stealing funds) and a mammoth reduction in the quality of their casino, going as far as to even remove the Grosvenor download casino entirely.

Guts originally established itself as a highly regarded casino with an 'interesting' name and a good sense of humour. Player reports were excellent and payouts super-fast, paying out winnings in just two hours. Unfortunately, as a result of Guts breach of contract with numerous websites (ourselves included) and a general lack of morals in recent times, we are not comfortable recommending any players risk real money at this casino. Stay away.

High Noon Casino
We are firmly back in dodgepot land with High Noon Casino where the cowboy theme could not be more appropriate. It's another RTG casino with a solid history that was blown to bits by incompetent new owners. Not recommended, in case that wasn't clear.

InterCasino demonstrate yet another sad downfall of gambling history turned into trash. Despite being one of the first-ever launched online casinos, InterCasino is now fully blacklisted at casino-download.com and most ethical review guides, following InterCasino's breach of contracts, funds-withholding, account closure/money-seized threats and other wild-west tactics by InterCasino's management, owners and JPJ Group. These dirty tricks include the now infamous money-grab achieved by retroactively breaking legal contracts and stealing revenue.

If you're in the UK then you've probably seen Jackpot247's live roulette on late night ITV1, shown every evening (except Sunday) until around 3am. As well as roulette, Jackpot247 offer live dealer blackjack, baccarat and auto-wheel roulette.

Kitty Bingo (+ Lucky Pants) Casino
Kitty Bingo has done some TV advertising so there's an apparent appearance of legitimacy but there's always been something 'not quite right' about Kitty Bingo and the other gambling websites within the same group, or rather groups as a plural as the ownership of this outfit is murkier than most internet gambling companies - and that's saying something. Call it intuition from twenty years in this industry but our spider-sense was tingling - with good reason, it turns out. It also helps that we know more about them than they realise - they don't have a lot of friends. We blacklisted Kitty Bingo in 2019 along with their mates Bingo Extra, Lucky Pants, Magical Vegas and SpinandWin with plenty more pure online casino brands to follow from associated casinos marketing under separate umbrellas but actually all part of the same outfit. Smoke n mirrors, y'know?

Lucky Red Casino
Another RTG casino cruelly struck down in its prime by the incurable 'new owners disease' (NOD) that claimed the long-earned reputation and success of Aladdin's Gold and Buzzluck. Let's try to remember them for what they were and hope there will be no more casualties of NOD.

Manhattan Slots Casino
Launched in 2010, Manhattan Slots is primarily a slot based casino with a downtown Manhattan boutique theme. It was all looking pretty and elegant in the boutique until our old enemy NOD disease banged its way through the door and made everything look, smell and feel like sixty-year old used underwear. Damn you, NOD! In summary, a casino only for dirty old underwear fanatics.

Mr Smith Casino
Boring name but not a boring history. Mr Smith entered the online casino scene with a UK focus and a questionable reputation from the day they took control of the casino from some really nice people, who had built this casino into a British success under the name of Harry Casino. Even if we dismiss all that, Mr Smith's owners decided in 2019 that enough was enough as far as paying all debts go - time to play dirty (and they did - closing accounts with due funds in them). Mr Smith is blacklisted and can go be boring and dishonest somewhere else.

Prospect Hall Casino
Prospect Hall is a multi-software mobile and no download casino based in the United Kingdom. We worked with these guys very briefly and don't plan on doing it again. Connected to Betfred's online casino affiliate program which has an appalling reputation for closing its affiliates' accounts and not paying advertisers.

Sahara Sands Casino
Sahara Sands is another rogue casino from the same stable as the equally horrendous Tropica Casino (see below). Sahara Sands has Rival Software games but we'd only recommend playing them for fun, never real money. Sahara Sands has failed to pay numerous debtors and isn't likely to change its ways.
Read more about Sahara Sands Casino
Tropica Casino does its best to impress its little sister, Sahara Sands (above) by leading the way in being a particularly crap casino. Player payouts are slow (that's when they actually happen) and the casino has a very justified reputation for choosing not to pay its advertising/affiliate fees. An all-round rotten egg.

Vernons Casino is a UK gaming site, part of the brand made famous through football pools betting back in the days before lottery tickets could be bought in every British newsagent. Vernons Casino has games from Playtech games. As with all other online casinos on this page, Vernons is not currently endorsed by casino-download.com.
