Yes! One of Ricardo's Casino's highest priorities is security. To be able to provide the highest privacy available we use the SSL4 protocol with 256-bit encryption. The system allows the highest security and integrity for all the information that passes to and from our server.
These precautions prevent access by unauthorized third parties. Apart from regular reports (which are sent to our customers via email), we strongly recommend all our players to make full use of the Transfer and Wagering history available in the cashier.
The payouts of our games vary. All games results are determined by Rival's cryptographically secure random number generator, which has been independently tested and confirmed to provide suitably random sequences of numbers. Independent auditors audit payouts from time to time. Depending on the game, the system may use a single deck or multiple decks that are shuffled before every wager.
If the gaming server received the bet it will be recorded and the result will be displayed after your Internet connection comes back. If the gaming server does not receive the bet you will either see the result of your previous bet or you will be asked to complete the unfinished bet.
This is caused by poor Internet performance. The results from the server are not reaching your computer, therefore the slot wheels keep spinning as they have not received the message telling them when and where to stop. If you close the program and run it again you will be refreshed to the last known position.

Promotions typically have wagering requirements associated with them. That means that there is a minimum amount of play required after claiming a promotion before you can withdraw your winnings. The amount you must play to meet the wagering requirements is a lot less than the average player would ordinarily play. Wagering requirements are typically completed in a couple hours of play (often much less) and the average player plays longer than that.
