B3W Casinos Warning
B3W is a brand of Internet casino software. As of this writing casinos using this software are the Yachting Casino, Monte-Casino, Casino Broceliande, Aeroplayer, Casino Solera, and First Royal Casino. Here's a list of casinos using this software.
On October 11 and 12, 2006, I performed some statistical tests on a yet to be named video poker game at the Yachting Casino. The results concerned me. After sharing them with customer support they informed me the next day that they were very concerned and would complete a report by the middle of next week. They have since told me they are taking this seriously but the investigation is still ongoing.
For now I am making no official accusations until the Yachting Casino/B3W has had a chance to refute my findings. The reader may wish to postpone playing video poker at any casino using B3W software until said report is finished. Stay tuned for more details and further developments.
Nov 7, 2006 update: Nothing new to report. The B3W group remains in communication but still have no results to report. They did offer to refund my original $400 deposit, which I accepted, and they quickly reversed my funds back to Neteller.
Nov 24, 2006 update: B3W told me they found a "modification" with the launch of the 10-play Jacks or Better game. I think this modification also affected the 1-play game but they did not confirm or deny this. They claim both games are playing fine now, and the overall return was always in line. It is unclear to me at what date the correction was made. They say that after an examination of their files refunds will be made to affected losing players.
Apr. 10, 2014 update: AJ Thompson, the new CEO of B3W asked me to post the following update about their software:
Over the past two years B3W has made significant strategy changes to move further into the platform provider role and away from internal game development. In order to offer the widest variety of games all B3W casinos are now fully integrated with Microgaming, Net Entertainment, Leander Games, NextGen Gaming and the NYX Interactive range of games. This means that all B3W casinos can now offer the 'Millionaire Maker' Mega Moolah progressive jackpot together with over 750 games available both online and on mobile devices.
