Not that I had much faith with any software comming from the English Harbour group anyway... But it is still amazing they decide to use this rigged game even though it is a just 5$ giveaway advertisment.

Some people never learn.

And btw. why do they mail this offer to existing customers when the bonus can only be used when signing up.

You win every time. Try put the chip on a single number.

I won 10 times in a row no matter where I put them.
Anyone managed to lose?

Edit: Just won on different single numbers 10 times in a row. I can not loose.
If someone is losing it is probably because of the URL. I took it from my mail and maybe
the URL is specially made to me (IP check or something)

lol, I hardly doubt this "game" has any type of connection to EH software. Just a simple flash program. The wheel and ball spinning is just there for eye candy.

It's a pretty lame marketing tactic...they'd be better off sending out an email offering a $5 ND bonus.

To be fair, I think this is mostly just an advertising gimmick. However, it does appear to be a legit roulette table and the (false) impression given is that this is the same software that you would use inside the casino.

Not so much rigged software as a very bad marketing idea bordering on deceptive, in my opinion.

What, and the software they use for real wouldnt be rigged? I think they should be applauded for being so upfront about the kind of 'randomness' you can expect.

I think it's extremely dishonest and disreputable. Most people who get hooked on gambling do so because they win the first time and get a buzz. Many people would see that page and get the impression that they really were lucky.

No indication is given that is just a con to get you to signup to their casino.

They tell you up front in their email you're going to "win" $5. There's no "gamble" to it. I would think 99.9% of people would realize that, and know they're not "winning" it. There's links to this roulette game on EH's site....it's strictly an email gimmick.

I just got an email for that the other day...wish I would have saved it, but it does have "WIN $5" in caps....not "spin for a chance at $5" or anything like that.

I do believe it's deceptive, but hardly a reason to cause problem gambling.

The sign below implies that there is an element of chance involved. Given the recent events, I would expect EH to stay clear of rigged games.

I tend to agree that it is just a stupid promotion gimmick. But my headline said 'rigged software' and I still find that true, whether it is flash promotion software or the real casino client.

Agreed that its a stupid promotion gimmick, but it does make me think - If they can rig a flash based promotional game, wouldn't they have the capability to turn it ON in real money games?

I think, by definition the use of the word "win" means that they are saying it is open to chance. You cant win if there is no chance to lose. The word should be collect or pick up ... there is no competition to win.

Unless "win" has a different meaning now.

And here we go again:

Let me guess... You hit 3 scatters for bonus game. And magically the prizes from the 3 chests add to 5$.

Notice that the bet is actually 90$. So what an 'amazing' win of 5% bet size on that bonus round.

And btw. you only get the 5$ if you are a new customer. So why the hell do they keep
spamming existing (former...) customers?

This is very questionable marketing. Enticing people to deposit via a scheme like this. Not very respectable IMHO.

FYI:

Superslots is running a similar promotion. I recieved this today.

WTF?

I guess they're going to have a different flavor of this promotion for all their casinos, and don't plan on stopping this BS behavior.

Spin The Wheel of Chance now and WIN $5!

Win up to $2,400 in one bonus spin at Super Slots!

Wheel of Chance has already paid out over $2,000,000 in 2006!

Superslots: The Home of Online Slots Since 1997!
