    "This is probably one of the best responses I've seen coming from a software provider in a long time. What do you think?

    Good going Boss! "

    Geesh Bryan, Are you really that naive? You must be the only one who believes this was an oversight.

    The right thing to do would be to immediately remove all Boss casinos from your site and for the OPA to put them on the not recommended list. This was nothing but a major act of theft and they got caught.

    Does anyone honestly think you can trust Boss Media anymore?

    I don't think it was theft. Boss is not hurting so bad that they need $100K. Furthermore, this is a publicly-listed company that is already likely to suffer from its rash decision, but has plenty of funds in reserve.

    Spear what do you call it when someone takes over 100K that don't belong to them and pockets it with NO INTENTION of returning it to the rightful owners? Just a big honest mistake?

    What would Boss have done with the money if they hadn't been caught? Would have went into the company coffers? You bet it would have, and probably will end up there anyway.

    How can anyone trust BOSS MEDIA AGAIN?

    Tell me, who are the rightful owners? The people that DIDN'T hit the jackpots when they were taken down? The casinos that DIDN'T have to pay out those jackpots (not Boss, the casinos have to pay out)?

    There WERE no rightful owners of the jackpots - although they should never have been taken down, your statement there makes zero sense. And Boss would not have been able to make any money from taking down the jackpots because they have no direct involvement in the pot!

    They just made a poorly thought out decision, that's it. And they will have to suffer the consequences of this silly mistake.

    They've invited PWC to examine the logs as well to ensure that the money gets paid out.

    Exactly how much more can you ask for?

    "Geesh Bryan, Are you really that naive? You must be the only one who believes this was an oversight."

    In defense of myself. I was merely implying that this was a great response from a software provider. On a daily basis, I receive complaints here at Casinomeister, many of which are handled no problem and go unnoticed by all except those involved. Sometimes I gotta go to the software provider to get an explanation of what the hell is going on. You'd be suprised (well maybe not) at how often I get no response from a software provider (this is usually done at a last resort effort to get some answers), or some half-assed bullshit response that don't cut it.

    It was refreshing for me to read a thorough thoughtful response from a software provider that I honestly feel is trying to grab the bull by the horns and take care of a screw up. I wasn't so focused on the word-for-word context, but on the spirit and intent of the explanation. Naive? I think not.

    You want to know who the owners of that money was? The players who would have hit them someday, thats who the owners were.

    My statement makes perfect sense to those that know the law, and I am basing this on Vegas law which is how we should be looking at this, that those jackpots ARE NOT the property of the casino or BOSS Media. They are the property of the players or more specifically, the player who will eventually hit the jackpot.

    The casinos and Boss media have already made their profit off of those funds. Everytime someone took a spin on one of those slots or played one of those games with a progressive a very small percentage went towards the progressive jackpot which is intended to be won. The purpose of the progressive jackpot amount is NOT to line the pockets of Boss Media or any individual casino, they are already making their money off of the game without the progressive jackpot.

    Do they have it in their terms and conditions that they can take down the progressives anytime they wish and pocket the money? I would think not.

    This is nothing, and I repeat nothing, but a case of theft in which Boss was caught.

    Bryan I understand your position that they made a public statement and are now doing the right thing. But the fact remains if no one had caught this they would have just pocketed over 100K of players money and moved on as if it was allright.

    Anyone, and I mean anyone, who thinks that wasn't Boss' intentions from the start is naive and ill-informed. Proof is the bullsh*t stories they made up about all of the jackpots being won in a single day.

    Both of you should remove all THIEVING BOSS MEDIA casinos off of your sites immediately and the OPA should have them on the Not Recommended list forever.

    There WERE no rightful owners of the jackpots - although they should never have been taken down, your statement there makes zero sense. And Boss would not have been able to make any money from taking down the jackpots because they have no direct involvement in the pot! [Endquote]

    Spearmaster - I strongly disagree with you.
    All $$$ in the progressive jackpot belong to the players, and will eventually be won by 1 player, except in the instance of the Caribbean Poker jackpot, in which a player who hits a straight flush is entitled to a % of the jackpot. (Therefore multiple players might have won)

    A casino has no right to discontinue the slot and seize all the $$$. Bossmedia made a terrible mistake doing this. And yes, they did have DIRECT INVOLVEMENT, since they claim ownership of thier flagship site, Gold Club Casino, and therefore every penny seized would have gone straight into Bossmedia's profits.

    Having said that, I also disagree with DonGambler when he claims Bossmedia is a crooked company. I've won more money there than on any other turnkey provider. Thier games are completely random. I still have a lot of confidence in Bossmedia, and will continue to play there.

    This scandal PALES in comparison to what I think might be going on at Microgaming.

    No one is saying that the casinos were entitled to keep the money - this is the whole point. But there were NO RIGHTFUL OWNERS at the time they were taken down - so kindly find a way to rephrase your contention.

    Dave - where did I say that the money didn't belong to the players?

    And yes, I'll give you Gold Club
    LOL
    - but you see every Boss casino used to maintain their own jackpot. Boss does not and could not have received the funds from all Boss casinos.

    As for the last comment, you know that's just hot air, no one even has anything to point to.

    What part of this don't you understand? The PLAYERS, both past and future, were the rightful owners of that money.

    In a Vegas progressive game if the casino takes down the game the progressive amount must be transferred to another game otherwise it is considered stealing. The law considers the Players, both past and future, the rightful owners of that money.

    But here we have Boss Media and some casinos thinking they can make a quick 100K at the expense of the players who built those jackpots up. Then lets see, we can make up some little lies about how they were all won in a single day while. Nothing but a major act of theft by a completely dishonest company.

    If any documentation is forthcoming regarding Boss or a casino telling players the jackpots were all won on a single day then indeed Don has a strong point.

    Certainly warrants further investigation.
