Max, they have some great bonus's and incentives, and I am told, unique lines, but some people have been irate at how they sometimes stall payments. There was a blow up a few weeks back concerning a player who sent more deposits after losing a bundle. This time he won 50k or so, but was told he could just withdraw 10k a week. With 20k still in there he made 2 bets that lost. He came to the forums and there was a huge stink over it all since he swore he never made the bets. And even though the recordings were made public, he swore they had been tampered with. Two forums believed this guy and went so far as to have him take a lie detector test which he failed.

People feel strongly both ways about Royal, so if I were you I would go ahead and take the time to research.

Have found since the latest incident that Royal's service has improved. I requested a payout last week, clerk didn't transfer me to anyone else, simply explained money would be in account by next day at 5 which it was. I have never had trouble getting money out and have been paid by time promised on all but one occassion(few hours late). However, you use to always get transferred to someone who would try to get you to keep your funds at the book. This would irritate most I'm sure but as long as they pay me when they promise I'm tolerant. Lines are good, bonuses solid, if they cut out the occassional goofiness they could be top notch.

Why play there if you don't have to.

I love Royal's big bonuses. Never had an issue getting paid. Takes 2 days usually.

Tej is still in control, or still "connected" there. (Never saw the clarification that was supposed to occur). If you don't mind playing at a shop with a proven offshore stiff, then Royal is the place for you until Charlie Therwanger, opens his next shop.

I have been using betroyal for over 2 years and have never had a problem with them.

I think the easiest and truest answer to this one is they are safe up to $1000.00 as per the Major himself.
