    New games at intercasino and malware warning.

    When you start up Intercasino it will start downloading all the new games at intercasino. There are several new very interesting slots and 10/50/100 hand VP (still the same VP variants and paytables).

    However, the reason for my post is that right after the installation, Firefox had an extension ready for install. Since Firefox is kind enough to ask if I want all sorts of crap installed (compared to IE that just does it) I of course denied. I had to manually delete it from the extension folder or firefox would keep asking if I wanted to install this unknown crap every time I opened the browser.

    The folder name was: (XXX is my username on XP, yours will be different)
    file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/XXX/Application%20Data/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/crl1q8eb.default/extensions/wagerlogic.xpi

    Actually the file is named wagerlogic.xpi which is a kind of giveaway that it was the intercasino upgrade that tried to install it.

    It is probably not harmfull in any way, but I did not install it to test it and I do not intend to do it. Can anyone contribute with some information about this or similar experience?

    I believe it is obvious that I do not approve of this way of forcing browser extensions on the players. I am still not sure I actually understood all this correct since I would not expect this from Intercasino.

    Very interesting. Maybe I will try playing for free (Can't play for real ) and see if it does the same thing. I'll give it a run and see what I can come up with..


    be back.

    Sounds like they are trying to add a button to Firefox that them and other casinos are doing for IE already....of course without asking, too.
    Operators: If you don't know what Transparency means, then here you go.....now how about practicing it?

    Transparency, as used in the humanities and in a social context more generally, implies openness, communication, and accountability. It is a metaphorical extension of the meaning a "transparent" object is one that can be seen through. ...

    Yep - I am checking it out to see exactly what information they are transferring back and forth. Hope I have something by tomorrow.

    I had to play real-mode to get those new games, though. Good thing my account isn't locked.

    Hi Zoozie,

    I really like reading your posts. You're always spot-on with your math and you give good reviews on the artistic stuff too.

    I think most of the VP paytables are the same, but I know for sure that the Joker Poker table has been increased in our favour. I'm not sure how much in percentage terms, but it has been upped.

    I tried it and it just puts a button on the toolbar that launches the casino application. Harmless really, but nice of Firefox to ask permission first. That's why I use Firefox instead of IE whenever possible.

    Thanks! And brave of you to try

    But the puzzle is solved at least. So it really was Intercasino.

    Looks as though they have been hit by the US ban.

    They are starting to spam the computers. They installed a quick launch in THREE place on my computer

    1) The start menu
    2) The Bar on my IE explorer
    3) On my quick launch bar

    I think they should have asked first, if they want to keep their reputation!

    Yes - that is correct. I took apart the code to see if anything else were going on under the hood and couldn't find anything bad about it. I think it is, of course, bad form for them to insert a BHO at all.... But at least it isn't spying on us.

    Is there a way for us to get rid of this piece of crappy code? Anyone found a solution? It keeps creating shortcut in the quick launch bar even after I delete it.
