Deceptive cheats - one of the worst scammy casinos ever
By Casinomeister, Last updated Jun 10, 2023
In our twenty years of experience dealing with rogue operations, this one tops the list for its flagrant flaunting of good business practice. They were caught using pirated software – and nothing was done about it.
As long as players are stupid enough to play there – and as long as unethical affiliate web admins advertise these rogues, they will stay in business.
In May of 2016, it was brought to our attention that Euromoon Casino was using pirated NetEnt games. NetEntertainment is a leading manufacturer of some of the best online casino games worldwide to include the US – and they have received many awards to include the coveted Best Player Experience of 2012. It’s no wonder why these games are so popular.
Well, the thing is – you don’t steal other people’s intellectual property which is exactly what the operators of Euromoon Casino did. They had lifted the software, uploaded it to some East European servers, and ran their own gaming server to mimic the bona fide games. This meant not only were they not paying licensing fees to NetEnt, they were also controlling the game-play of the games. In other words, players were getting fleeced by unknown RTP settings and questionable payouts.
The worst is that their so-called licensing jurisdiction did nothing to prevent this, and they have done nothing to resolve this situation by ensuring all players who played these crooked games would get a refund.
The evidence for fake games:
All Netent games are served by their server gamesmodule.com. You can check this out for yourself by right clicking the flash game and then observe the settings. The following is an example of the Scarface Slots hosted by a Casinomeister Accredited Casino VeraJohn. This is legit and this is how it should be displayed:
Note Casinomodule.com – this is the actual NetEnt casino server.
Euromoon was using something a bit different. Here is a screenshot taken of their Scarface game:
And here are the details of the game server:
Please note that this game is hosted by http://gamesapi.net/ which is not an official NetEnt game server.
More bullshit: Gonzo’s Quest.
This is being served by 24techpro.com
24techpro.com is wide open. You can peruse their files here:
There are more here:
Who is behind the domain 24techpro.com? Well it certainly is not Netent – it’s some Greek guy.

Euromooncasino’s bogus license
Euromooncasino is licensed by Curacao-egaming.com – which is also known as Cyberluck (Master License 1668/JAZ). The licensing jurisdiction refused to offer a statement concerning this situation: why it was possible for their licensees to use pirated software, and if players who played these games would be able to have their deposits refunded.
What is also unfortunate is that the affiliates who are promoting these brands are probably being ripped off as well. If an operator has the audacity to rip off a well known brand of software, what do you think they are doing to the affiliate stats? In other words, you’d have to have rocks in your head to promote Affpower. Further, if you are an affiliate who is promoting these brands and knows that they have fraudulent software – you are aiding and abetting the crime. You could possibly be held liable in either a civil or criminal court.
Netent contacted us letting me know that after they informed the operators of Euromoon that the games they had been using were copies, these operators opted to host the actual NetEnt games. So now the NetEnt games are legit. They got caught with their pants down, and they are guilty of hosting bogus games.
A transgression like this can never be forgiven, and they have found themselves permanently rogued. In my eighteen years running Casinomeister, this sort of despicable display of unethical business practice has been reserved for the lowest of the low. Not paying players is one thing, but cheating both players and affiliates with crooked software is both loathsome and reprehensible. They should be drummed out of the business, and anyone promoting these guys should be held liable for promoting a fraud.
The bottom line is that is doesn’t make any difference whatsoever that they now are hosting legit NetEnt games. They were caught cheating, and in this business once a cheat – always a cheat.
Avoid these casinos at all costs.

BONUSES AND PROMOTIONS
Since this casino is so rogue, we won’t talk about the bonuses and promotions in our Euromoon Casino review as they feature crooked terms and conditions. You’d be playing pirated/fake games anyway – choose one of the better online casinos.
BANKING AND PAYMENT METHODS
Euromoon Casino offered a few payment methods – with all their banking partners likely registered off-shore. You stand no chance of getting your money back.
Withdrawals at Euromoon Casino are rarely processed; small winners MIGHT get paid, but forget about it if you get a big hit. You won’t see a CENT of that cash.
Like their “Know Your Customer” procedures, Euromoon casinos really couldn’t care less if their players struggled with online gambling. While they have a ‘token’ responsible gambling link in the footer section of their website, this is nothing more than a way to ensure that they can get an online gambling license.
They claim to offer players a few responsible gambling tools – but we’ve heard from players who were unable to set any responsible gambling tools up.
Euromoon Casino claims to offer customer support around the clock. They boast of the customer support team that works 24 hours a day, seven days a week – and that may be true for new players or for those who don’t request a withdrawal.
However, as is often the case with Rogue online casinos, if you run into serious problems – especially those related to withdrawals and bonus issues, you can expect Euromoon Casino to prompt you to send an email to the customer support team. You will likely not hear back – a common tactic rogue operators use to get out of paying players and answer their questions.
“Know Your Customer” checks are now crucial for online gambling. Virtually all online gambling regulators require licensees to carry out in-depth “Know Your Customer” and “Source of Wealth” checks on players to make sure they can afford what they spend.
Euromoon Casino couldn’t care less about whether you’re spending more than you can afford; they’ll actively encourage you to spend as much as you can while playing at the online casino.
They’re very likely to carry out “Know Your Customer” checks when you try to make a withdrawal. However, this isn’t for compliance reasons; it’s simply another ploy to delay having to pay you your winnings. They’ll do everything they can to find a loophole to avoid paying you.
Website Experience and Features
found it easy to use, easy to navigate and user-friendly, but this is nothing more than a ploy to try and get as many players to join up and spend money as possible. The software is far from state-of-the-art; it’s just cookie-cutter ‘pirated’ code, and there’s absolutely nothing special here.
It’s barely worth talking about the games on offer at Euromoon casino. While all of our online casino reviews talk significantly about the game selection on offer, we’re not going to do that in this Euromoon Casino review; all you need to know is that the Euromoon casino offers FAKE and PIRATED NetEnt games.
Complaints and Track Record
Here are just one of the MANY negative comments we get about Euromoon in the forums:
“Hi, here is a new horror story about Euromoon aka Tech Group .. avoid playing there at all costs. I started with an old account for €0. I got mail €100 bonus on the next deposit with code “100 extra.”
I deposited €20 with bonus code “100 extra” and ended with €123 bonus money to play with now the new scam is they give you €100 and hide €3 without explanation or info on-screen or t&c; now they see your account as €3 bonus and maxbet €0,60 even you have €123 bonus money and wager of €4800 or something
Now I did €1 spins and got all winnings voided as I made too high bets for my “€3 bonus” this corrupt system can void 99% of all payouts when playing with bonus on Euromoon and Tech Group.”
