Given the recent changes to the UKGC legislation surrounding the use of online casinos, it poses the question as to whether no limit casinos are a thing of the past. In fact, were they ever even a thing in the first place?
The short answer is no, but the long answer is a bit longer winded – if you’re a British player, playing in Britain, and using an online casino that sits under UKGC jurisdiction, then limits have always been applied to spins. Furthermore, they’re going through a change at present where this is likely to become stricter still.
Casinos that don’t accept UK players, which foreign nationals are entitled to play, and are licensed elsewhere – research suggests that spin limits are far less strict and, in some cases, don’t exist at all. True, there will always be an element of restriction – after all, the house only has a maximum liability that it is willing to risk. But the likelihood of a punter wanting to stake more than that liability is almost non-existent.
Over in Monte Carlo, in the world-famous Casino de Paris, the glorious and antiquated building is segmented almost into two. One area for the lower stakers, another for the higher – no limit spinning is definitely a thing in existence here. Small piles of chips may be deceiving to the casual gamer – it doesn’t look like they’re punting much. But the reality is – some of these chips are worth £500k to £1m each – a hefty price for the wheel to spin on your desired red or black.
Whilst no limit casinos are uncommon, they’re certainly not non-existent. But for a British online player, operating in UKGC licensed casinos, they never really were a thing. And with the new regulation imminent, they’re never likely to be one.
