Some industry news fresh off the press from the renowned Casinomeister website that is considered industry leading and the go to place for players.
The first news is an update on a story that was featured here on the 10th May 2017. Readers may remember that Casumo was rogued due to them not dealing with affiliates that used practices that were rather dodgy. Practices such as misleading adverts were reported to the Casumo representative but brushed under the carpet. As a result of this, the casino was put in the rogue pit.
This week, the team at Casinomeister has returned Casumo to their accredited section following action that was finally taken by the casino management. The culprit affiliates were dealt with and commitment was given that this would continue.
Playing at Casumo from a players perspective was never under doubt (it was the affiliate actions that led to it going in the rogue pit) and having accreditation back will only confirm this.
But the vacancy in the rogue pit was not there for long. Today, Casinomeister has decided to put GoWild Casino in the rogue pit and it is recommended that you no longer play at this casino as a result of this.
And the reason for this begs the question why you would indeed be so silly to continue playing there.
A player on the Casinomeister forum complained that GoWild refused his substantial winnings because he broke the following rule in their terms and conditions:
6.2. Without derogation from the generality of the foregoing, the following activities are not allowed and constitute a material breach of these Terms of Service: i) colluding with third parties; ii) using unfair advantage or influence (commonly known as cheating), including the exploitation of a fault, loophole or error in our software, the use of automated players (sometimes known as ‘bots’); or the exploitation of an ‘error’; iii) undertaking fraudulent activities to your advantage, including the use of a stolen, cloned or otherwise unauthorized credit or debit card, as a source of funds, or taking part in any criminal activities including money laundering and any offence with criminal repercussions; iv) irregular play, which may include but is not wholly restricted to any one or more of the following types of play: placing single bets equal to or exceeding the limit defined in the terms of the bonus campaigns of the value of the bonus credited to the player account, in advance of the wager requirement for that bonus having been met; using the double-up feature to increase bet values; placing even money bets on Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette and/or building a balance and significantly changing play patterns for example bet size, game types and bet structures etc.
but the player (and that is quite important here) was not playing with bonus money or was clearing wagering. They used this rather rogue term to not pay him.
As we players know and do, we vary our bet size as the balance goes up or down and that usually isn’t and shouldn’t be a problem. Us players decide how we bet. Slots are random after all and don’t care about the bet size.
Taking note of the bet size and the irregular changing of it, should only be watched when you play with bonus funds because a max bet rule is normally in play and irregular play such as regularly varying the bet size may be frowned upon by the casino.
The confiscation of this player’s winnings deserved a place in the rogue pit and I can’t emphasise enough not to play at this casino. If you do have an account with them, please close it immediately – there is definitely better out there!
Happy, and safe, slotting everybody!
