If when you visit allcams.com things seem a little familiar it’s likely because it uses the same database as camcontacts.com, a site that managed 2.5 / 5.0 when reviewed.
Not only does allcams utilise the same models it also looks very similar to camcontacts using the same (bland) look. The site was first created back in 2004, 4 years later than its twin yet still seems dated for the 21st Century.
As with camcontacts, you are likely to find about 1000 live cams with more than 100,000 registered chat hosts. As mentioned in our camcontacts review is likely the online numbers are ‘fudged’.
There is no guest chat on allcams.com, if you want sex chat you need to register, registering is fairly easy and is a 2 part process. Choose a username and password and enter your email address. After verifying your email you will need to enter your credit or debit card details. Allcams state that they take your credit card details for verification purposes only and they will not charge you unless you click one of the site links that take payment.
Charges vary from chat hosts to chat host and it’s down to the specific host to determine how much he or she will charge. At the time of reviewing charges varied between $1.00 per minute upto $6.50 per minute however many of the amateurs or non hardcore / fetish rooms were for under $2.00 which is actually pretty good value for live video chat.
You have two options when deciding how to chat, you can either go for open chat (where you share the room with others like you) or private chat (just you and the chathost). Open chat is obviously cheaper than Private.
Cam Quality & Features
As a registered member you would expect to get at least a little bit of free chat but no, even after giving your credit card the most you can do is text chat. This is a major flaw with this site. How the hell do I know if I want to spend $2 – $5 dollars with a model if I can’t even see the live cam first?
Clicking online models should provide you with something similar to the above image. Clicking video chat informs you that you are about to start a live chat with the model costing $x.xx and do you agree. Once you click accept you will be taken to the models room and your card will automatically be charged for the time spent in the room.
The quality of the online cam girls was ok, the large majority being Eastern European however there were American and UK models available.
Most of the cams seemed basic and many appeared somewhat fuzzy. I did encounter a couple of HD cams whilst reviewing however it would have made things a whole lot easier if they had put this information alongside the models profile.
Do you want to spend your time on an outdated site that looks like it was created in the late 90’s?
Do you want to give your credit card details to a company that offers live video chat yet doesn’t allow you to see the girls prior to taking your money?
Do you want to cam with girls and guys from all over the world like it’s 1999?
Then waste no more time because allcams.com sounds perfect for you.
The bottom line is:
Would I recommend this site to friends? No.
