    Wild Jack Casino is NOT part of Jackpot Factory

    A recent spate of problems with PABS concerning Wild Jack Casino has revealed that they ARE NOT part of the Jackpot Factory group and probably haven't been for some time. Apparently a few forum members discovered discrepancies some time ago (kudos to VWM, KK and others). Confirmation that WJ is no longer part of JF came today, directly from both JF and WJ representatives.

    Wild Jack's Accredited status is TBD pending Bryan's return from summer vacation and his review of the Wild Jack situation.

    FYI
    : According to my records they were sold by Jackpot Factory to "Nexigames Ltd" in June 2010.

    They did still keep the same affy program though (Brightshare), which may have caused some people to think they were still under the same owners as their other brands.

    As I discovered today, ALL the former JF casinos are now run by Nexigames, so you STILL don't have the truth.

    Players at All Slots and All Jackpots had an email informing them that both were moving to the LGA, billed as an "improvement" for players.

    Now that the move has taken place:-


    Wild Jack Casino is managed by Nexigames Ltd. (C38617) a Maltese registered company with registered address at 8, Villa Seminia, Sir Temi Zammit Avenue, Ta’ Xbiex XBX1011. Nexigames Ltd. is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta LGA/CL1/259/2006.

    All Slots Casino is managed by Nexigames Ltd. (C38617) a Maltese registered company with registered address at 8, Villa Seminia, Sir Temi Zammit Avenue, Ta’ Xbiex XBX1011.
    Nexigames Ltd. is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta LGA/CL1/259/2006.

    All Jackpots Casino is managed by Nexigames Ltd. (C38617) a Maltese registered company with registered address at 8, Villa Seminia, Sir Temi Zammit Avenue, Ta’ Xbiex XBX1011. Nexigames Ltd. is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta LGA/CL1/259/2006. You are being played.
    So, how can it be possible that Wild Jack are not connected to All Slots and All Jackpots?

    Where is the lie?, the two reps, the one KK contacted, or the website (where it's a legal requirement of the LGA to post the correct and up to date information, which implies the LGA have been mislead too).

    There is much more to this than even now the companies are prepared to admit, and this is so far short of the standards for accreditation that it beggars belief they have managed to get away with it for this long.

    If the whole corporate structure is such a sham, how can players be assuredly safe? They certainly can't trust the LGA to protect their interests if things suddenly turn sour at Nexigames.

    Retaining Wild Jack within Brightshare seemed a little odd at the time, but now it makes perfect sense, Nexigames owns the whole lot.

    Maybe Nexigames was nothing more than another holding company of the ultimate and rather secretive owners of the JF brands and the in house processor Inexia. Maybe there never was any sale, and that the purpose behind the creation of Nexigames was to provide a means to move Wild Jack from Kahnawake to the LGA so as to allow advertising in the UK. The move now having been completed by the transfer of All Slots and All Jackpots to Nexigames, all three now running under the same license, the one the LGA originally granted to Nexigames for Wild Jack.

    To admit that the three are now connected would blow away the veil on the last 3 years, but it's becoming pretty clear that they are connected, and always have been, throughout all these changes. It's just that they have artificially compartmentalised the business of Wild Jack from the other two in order to retain consistency with what they have told players, but if CS for one arm can pull up a players details from another, there is quite a considerable connection.
    Trust me, I'm a weatherman.

    : I have gone through my e-mail archives and only have 2 references to "Nexigames" as below.

    Dated 20-June-2010:
    Subject: BrightShare Updates

    Dear Mark,

    On June 21st, we will be migrating Wild Jack Casino and Wild Jack Mobile Casino players to a new server in accordance with our remote gaming license from the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.

    Up until now, players have been able to use their Wild Jack Casino accounts to play at other Jackpot Factory casinos, and vice versa. Per the terms of this license, Wild Jack Casino is no longer part of the Jackpot Factory and is now owned by Nexigames Limited and therefore crossplay will no longer be possible. Play at Wild Jack Casino can only be through a Wild Jack Casino account. Please update your site content regarding Wild Jack Casino and Jackpot Factory accordingly.

    Please note that on June 21st, we expect about two hours of casino downtime between 5-7 a.m. GMT, while the changes are taking place at Wild Jack Casino. If you have any campaigns that are scheduled to go live on that date, we recommend delaying them slightly.

    Having this European license is an important step for Wild Jack Casino, and offers great marketing opportunities. Please contact us if you have any questions.

    Best Regards,
    Liyu

    Dated 04-April-2013:
    Dear Mark,

    On April 8th, our clients, All Slots, All Jackpots, First Web and the VIP Lounge, will be getting a remote gaming license from the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta (replacing the Kahnawake License) as they move their operations from SquarIT to NexiGames.

    Please note that on April 8th, our clients expect about five hours of downtime from 2-7 a.m. GMT on the download, Flash and mobile platforms, while the changes are taking place.

    Having this prestigious license in Malta is an important step for our clients’ brands and offers great marketing opportunities.

    Please contact us if you have any questions.

    This seems to imply there was never any sale, merely the creation of an artificial structure to suit the requirements of the LGA at the time.

    Now, I didn't know they had crossplay to start with (I don't normally use it anyway).

    Now, I wonder if crossplay was retained between All Slots, All Jackpots, and First Web when the moved the server.

    If so, it provides for an experiment to determine the possible level of connection now

    Crossplay.

    I have the All Slots download installed, and managed to log in to All Jackpots, thus confirming that crossplay is still enabled.

    I then tried logging in to RedFlush, VIP Lounge, and Wild Jack via the All Slots lobby.

    With Red Flush, as expected I got the "wrong username/password" error, it's the wrong server, no connection between the casinos.

    I know for a fact that my VIP Lounge account was locked when I was booted from the VIP program. The email from Brightshare said that now that Wild Jack had been "sold" to Nexigames, cross play would no longer be possible.

    One would assume that cross play cannot, by design, work between unconnected casinos, even if based on the same server farm (Malta in this case), and the result from the attempt to log in to Red Flush via All Slots seems to confirm this.

    It also follows that trying to log in to VIP Lounge would generate a message that indicated the account was locked, rather than it was "unrecognised", and it did.

    However, logging in to Wild Jack, I ALSO got this same message (see below), rather than the expected "wrong username/password" error one would expect when attempting to use cross play between unconnected casinos.

    This would match the information on the three websites (all 3 Nexigames under the same LGA license), rather than the "official statement" from the rep.

    maybe something to read

    Hi! I think all is behind this Spiral Solutions. jackpotfactory or nexigames..

    Who knows...

    I wound in web this order : https://www.google.fi/url?sa=t&rct=j...51156542,d.bGE

    ADMINISTRATIVE PANEL DECISION
    SquarIT Limited v. Ravis Varmas
    Case No. DNL2013-0016




    1. The Parties

    The Complainant is SquarIT Limited of Belize, Belize, represented by Spiral Solutions, Israel.

    The Respondent is Ravis Varmas of Paris, France.


    2. The Domain Name and Registrar

    The disputed domain name <allslotscasino.nl> (the “Domain Name”) is registered with SIDN through EuroDNS S.A.


    3. Procedural History

    The Complaint was filed with the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (the “Center”) on April 9, 2013. On April 9, 2013, the Center transmitted by email to SIDN a request for registrar verification in connection with the Domain Name. On April 10, 2013, SIDN transmitted by email to the Center its verification response confirming that the Respondent is listed as the registrant and providing the contact details. The Center verified that the Complaint satisfied the formal requirements of the Dispute Resolution Regulations for .nl Domain Names (the “Regulations”).

    In accordance with the Regulations, articles 5.1 and 16.4, the Center formally notified the Respondent of the Complaint, and the proceedings commenced on April 24, 2013. In accordance with the Regulations, article 7.1, the due date for Response was May 14, 2013. On April 24, 2013, the Center received several email communications sent from the registrant’s e-mail address as listed in the WhoIs database for the Domain Name. In the email communications an individual claimed not to be the owner of the Domain Name. The Respondent did not submit any response. Accordingly, the Center notified the Respondent’s default on May 15, 2013.

    The Center appointed Willem J.H. Leppink as the panelist in this matter on May 29, 2013. The Panel finds that it was properly constituted. The Panelist has submitted the Statement of Acceptance and Declaration of Impartiality and Independence, as required to ensure compliance with the Regulations, article 9.2.




    4. Factual Background

    The following facts are undisputed.

    The Complainant has a long established reputation in the use of its ALLSLOTSCASINO and ALLSLOTS trademarks in relation to online gaming and casino services. The Complainant has been using these marks in the course of trade for many years.

    The Complainant owns, manages and operates its websites under the domain names <allslotscasino.com> and <allslots.com> since April 25, 1999.

    The Complainant owns Community Trademark registrations for the ALLSLOTSCASINO trademark (registration number 10563781) and for the ALLSLOTS trademark (registration number 10563716), both registered on June 13, 2012, for goods and services in classes 9, 41 and 42.

    The Domain Name was registered by the Respondent on October 4, 2010.


    5. Parties’ Contentions

    A. Complainant

    Insofar as relevant, the Complainant contends the following.

    The Respondent is unlawfully using the Domain Name in order to promote its “All Slots Casino” website (hereinafter the “Infringing Website”). The Complainant contends that the Infringing Website is in fact an infringing copy of the Complainant’s websites, with all of its intellectual property rights therein, including its content, titles and/or trademarks, made by the Respondent without the Complainant’s consent, authorization or permission.

    The Domain Name is identical and/or confusingly similar to the Complainant’s trademarks. The Domain Name wholly incorporates the Complainant’s ALLSLOTSCASINO and ALLSLOTS trademarks. Consequently, the Respondent is misleading Internet users and consumers to believe that its Infringing Website is somehow related or connected to the Complainant’s websites.

    As a result of the above, the Complainant also contends that there is a substantial likelihood that Internet users or consumers will be confused into believing that there is some affiliation, connection, sponsorship, approval or association between the Complainant and the Respondent.

    The Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the Domain Name. The Respondent has not been commonly known by the Domain Name and has not acquired any trademark or service mark rights regarding the Domain Name. Furthermore, the Respondent is neither an agent nor a licensee of the Complainant and has no connection or affiliation with the Complainant.

    The Respondent has no rights to use the Complainant’s ALLSLOTSCASINO and/or ALLSLOTS trademarks, or marks that are confusingly similar to these trademarks.

    The Complainant is unaware of any legitimate rights the Respondent could have in the Domain Name, which is confusingly similar to the Complainant’s trademarks. Therefore, the Complainant contends that the Respondent has no legitimate interest in the Domain Name and has made no fair or good-faith use of the Domain Name.

    The Complainant contends that as both the Complainant’s websites and the Infringing Website are using the same content, titles and/or trademarks and as the Complainant’s domain names and the Domain Name are identical, it is clear that the Respondent is unlawfully using the Complainant’s trademarks in order to mislead users to believe that the Infringing Website is actually the Complainant’s website and/or somehow associated or related to it, thus offering competing services to such online traffic. Furthermore, as both the Complainant’s website and the Infringing Website offer online gaming services and/or information, it is clear that the Respondent has registered and is holding the Domain Name in bad faith with the intention to profit from it.

    B. Respondent

    The Respondent did not reply to the Complainant’s contentions.


    6. Discussion and Findings

    According to article 2.1 of the Regulations, for this Complaint to be successful in relation to the Domain Name, the Complainant must prove that:

    (a) the Domain Name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or a trade name, protected under Dutch law in which the Complainant has rights; or a personal name registered in the General Municipal Register (‘gemeentelijke basisadministratie’) of a municipality in the Netherlands, or the name of a Dutch public legal entity or the name of an association or foundation registered in the Netherlands under which the Complainant undertakes public activities on a permanent basis; and

    (b) the Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the Domain Name; and

    (c) the Domain Name has been registered in bad faith or is being used in bad faith.

    As the Respondent has not filed a Response, the Panel shall rule on the basis of the Complaint. In accordance with article 10.3 of the Regulations, the Complaint shall in that event be granted, unless the Panel considers it to be without basis in law or in fact.

    A. Identical or Confusingly Similar

    Pursuant to article 2.1(a) of the Regulations, the Complainant must establish that the Domain Name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or trade name in which the Complainant has rights.

    Taking into account that the top-level suffix “.nl” may be disregarded under the test of identity or confusing similarity, the Panel finds that the Domain Name is identical to the ALLSLOTSCASINO trademark.

    The Complainant has therefore established the first element of article 2.1 of the Regulations.

    B. Rights or Legitimate Interests

    The Complainant contends that the Respondent does not own any trademark registrations for “allslotscasino”, or has been known under that name. Furthermore, the Complainant contends that the Respondent is not making a legitimate noncommercial or fair use of the Domain Name without intent for commercial gain to misleadingly divert consumers or to tarnish the trademark of the Complainant, since it appears that the Respondent is using the Domain Name to offer online gaming services and/or information with the intention to profit from it. The Panel finds that the Complainant has made a prima facie case that the Respondent lacks rights to or legitimate interests in the Domain Name.

    The Respondent has not filed a Response, and the Panel has not found any evidence in the record that could establish rights to or legitimate interests in the Domain Name on the part of the Respondent.

    Under these circumstances, and considering article 10.3 of the Regulations, the Panel finds that the Respondent has no rights to or legitimate interests in the Domain Name. The Complainant has therefore established the second element of article 2.1 of the Regulations.

    C. Registered or Used in Bad Faith

    The Complainant contends that the Respondent must have been aware of the Complainant and its rights when the Respondent registered the Domain Name. According to the Complainant, this is emphasized by the fact that the Complainant’s websites and the Infringing Website are using the same content, titles and/or trademarks and that the Complainant’s domain names and the Domain Name are identical.

    In this regard the Panel notes that the Complainant’s ALLSLOTS and ALLSLOTSCASINO trademarks were registered almost two years after the Respondent registered the Domain Name. The Complainant has furthermore provided no evidence as to how the Infringing Website would be “an infringing copy” of the Complainant’s website (for instance, no screenshots of the Complainant’s websites have been provided). On the other hand, the Panel notes that the Complainant has been offering its services under the domain names <allslotscasino.com> and <allslots.com> since as early as 1999, that the Infringing Website appears to offer information regarding online gambling services, in particular about the Complainant’s services, and that the Domain Name is identical to the Complainant’s <allslotscasino.com> domain name. The Panel therefore finds it likely that the Respondent had the Complainant’s business in mind when it registered the Domain Name.

    The Panel finds it furthermore likely that by using the Domain Name as described above, the Respondent has intentionally attempted to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to its website or other on-line location, by creating a likelihood of confusion with the Complainant’s trademarks as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of the Respondent’s website or location or of a product or service on the Respondent’s website or other location.

    While not dispositive by itself, the fact that the e-mail address as listed in the WhoIs database for the Domain Name appears to be incorrect, supports the finding of bad faith on the part of the Respondent.
    The Respondent has not filed a Response, and has therefore not provided any evidence to rebut the Complainant’s allegations.
    Under these circumstances, and considering article 10.3 of the Regulations cited above, the Panel finds that the Complainant has established the third element of article 2.1 of the Regulations.

    7. Decision
    For all the foregoing reasons, in accordance with articles 1 and 14 of the Regulations, the Panel orders that the Domain Name <allslotscasino.nl> be transferred to the Complainant.

    Looks like a fake landing page used by a spammy affiliate got shut down. Kudos to All Slots in this case

    I have seen loads of stuff like this, you get spam for a well known operation, you click through to "their site", but often every link you click is a download of some completely different casino, and you end up installing some junk from a less reputable or even rogue casinos.

    This could be a new way to combat this type of spam, not complain to the affiliate program for the casino actually downloaded, but to the better known casino you were expecting to download, pointing out that this fake site has dented your trust in the industry as a whole, including the reputable operator.

    Maybe we'll see less of the All Slots spam now that he has lost his landing page, and on top of this, we now know his name

    It's been known that Spiral Solutions is the vehicle behind the JF casinos, and behind Spiral Solutions would be the Israeli brothers who own this "empire", although how many shells, holding companies, trusts, etc between Spiral Solutions and them is unclear.

    In this case, we should be looking for evidence of a connection between Spiral Solutions and Nexigames. This would back up the theory that the "sale" of Wild Jack was not genuine, but more a transfer from one subsidiary to another, probably for tax and licencing reasons.

    SquareIT would seem to no longer have any assets, so would be a shell company if it hasn't already been dissolved. The JF brand may have remained with SquareIT, which is why All Slots and the others are now "managed by Nexigames", rather than "Jackpot Factory".

    I believe we have been here before, with All Slots USA, which also lead to players being told "They are nothing to do with us" when trying to get help from "Jackpot Factory" reps and support.
    Trust me, I'm a weatherman.
