This article is in reference to an issue that occured in November 2012, and affected various online casinos. The issue continued in December 2012.
This issue occured on November 19th, 2012. Due to a “technical error”, various online casinos which used the Real Time Gaming casino software went down. If you tried to log in, you would be able to do so. If you attempted to donload the casino via their website or play the flash casino, you would be unable to.
December 15th, 2012 Update: As of December 15th, 2012 Begado Casino, Loco Panda Casino and all of the other online casinos affected by this outage are now back online.
This has affected various online casinos. Online casinos this outage has affected but is not limited to, is Loco Panda Casino, Classy Coins Casino, OnBling Casino, Grand Poker Casino and Begado Casino.
Not all casinos that are using the Real Time Gaming software are done – just a select few. This is good for Americans as it means it is likely just a technical issue, and not a legislation or regulation issue.
As of this writing, November 27th, 2012 none of the aforementioned online casinos are currently working. This is expected to change very soon – at last word, I was informed the online casinos would be working again as of November 28th, 2012 and will update when this happens.
I have spoken to various higher-ups at all of these online casinos, and they have assured me that as soon as the problems are resolved it will be “business as usual”. If you are looking to play at Classy Coin Casino, Begado Casino or any of the other casinos listed above then you shouldn’t have to wait that much longer.
I’ve also been informed that all of your funds are safe, and that any withdrawals requested will be processed as normal once these issues are resolved.
On top of this, the online casinos are expected to offer a pretty sick “compensation package” to all users affected by this outage in the form of some great bonuses, and most likely some no deposit bonuses too. If you are a new user, you will also be given an extra bang for your buck no doubt.
If you are an American looking for an alternative, I would recommend WinADay Casino. They have been in operation since 1998 and never been down even for a day. One of the top online casinos by far.
If you’re not an American – WinADay Casino is still a top choice due to the variety of games. I’d also recommend InterCasino who have been around forever, and are one of the most professionally run, secure online casinos there is.
Additional November 2012 Online Casinos Down Questions:
Is Begado Casino or Classy Coin Casino stealing my money?
None of these online casinos are stealing any money or anything as bad as that – don’t worry. This really is just an unfortunate technical glitch. The communication by these brands has unfortunately been weak – but I’ve spoken to them and everyone is working on getting this issue fixed ASAP.
Are these Online Casinos down because they accept Americans?
No – this is nothing to do with that. If this was the case, either every RTG Casino would be down(they aren’t – this only affects about 30% of their online casinos) or every casino from a “casino group” would be down. For example – the guys behind Begado Casino also own Casino Titan and Winpalace Casino – neither of those online casinos are down.
This is just an unfortunate technical matter that should hopefully get resolved soon.
whats going on with loco panda casino they have been down for at least 4 weeks they owe me money are they going to be back up soon cant down load or play
As mentioned above, they are currently down due to software issues. We spoke with the parent group of these casinos, Revenue Jet, on December 7th 2012. We were told by them that there is still no known return date, but they are hoping it is within the week. There appears to be some major technical issue as far as we know that is causing these problems.
