Fourth Point of Contact Award 2015

The “fourth point of contact” is US paratrooper lingo for the fourth point of your body as it hits the ground during a parachute landing fall. In other words, it’s yer ass.

This year’s award goes to Playtech and every operator whose casino is listed on the Playtech Progressive Limitations page in the rogue pit.

This has been going on for years – and all cries for justice have fallen on deaf ears. What is the problem? If a player wins a progressive jackpot at most Playtech casinos, that player will only be paid max $/€10,000 per month. Why is this predatory and unethical? The progressive cash is pooled funds – it doesn’t belong to the casino – it belongs to the winner. To limit the payments is deplorable and abhorrent. Bottom sucking casino operations.

There is a documented case of a woman who gave up half of her jackpot winnings because she didn’t realise that rule was unfair. The casino kept over a million dollars of her winnings, and what happened. Absolutely nothing. What happened to the money? It doesn’t take an Einstein to figure that one out.

And no one seems to give a care. And no one seems interested in changing this predatory, unethical, rogue term. You would have to have a screw loose to play at one of these casinos, and for those promoting these properties – you probably have your head up your fourth point of contact as well.

What can be done about this? Well, Playtech obviously won’t do anything, affiliates who promote these brands don’t care, the main stream media is oblivious, the only ones who can really do anything is you the player. Vote with your feet.
