Some of the Real Time Gaming casinos are questionable and in 2002 many players lost their accounts when one of their casinos, Casino Merlin, went under. Most of their online casinos, however, are legitimate and reliable. Since then, Real Time Casinos have put a lot of effort into cleaning up their image and it has improved greatly. All of Real Time's gaming software is thoroughly tested and approved by Technical System Testing (TST) which is a world leader in game testing.
