    Amazing New Casino Begado, Must Read

    Has any body played there and had good/bad experiences?

    Bonus looks decent

    This is an actual statement from them; " is a six-time winner of the Best Casino award from Casinomeister, and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. ... Begado Casino All U.S. Players Welcome"

    Any truth???? ( I will hold in my laughter for now)

    Thanks in advance

    Begado is an affactive casino. Stay away!

    Affactive are spammers! They will never get any awards (at least not positive ones) from here.

    Edit: Winpalace, Slots Jungle and some others are their brands.

    They DID win a Casinomeister award of sorts, check the rogue pit:p

    Bryan REALLY pissed Affactive off a while back, so maybe this is some kind of revenge. Maybe they will join the elite club of "double rogued" casinos, currently a club with one member, Rushmore group. Could be a proper club with Rushmore and Affactive, and maybe Virtual group might fancy joining once it realises it's latest "turn over a new leaf" effort has been fooling noone. If Top Game also join them, we could have another public punch-up:D


    Maths is not their strong point, they have won TWO awards, not 6 as stated.

    It seems they are pretty crap at spelling. The word is spelled "worst", whereas they have spelled it "best".

    The two prestigious awards they have won are:-

    1) Worst casino group 2010
    2) Worst casino group 2011


    Maybe the spammer is clairvoyant, and has prior knowledge of the 2015 Casinomeister awards listing, and has thus arrived at six:D

    Them relating to casinomeister as a reference point is akin to a turkey thinking "Oh he likes me" after Bernard Mathews has just winked to it.

    This might be affiliate spam rather than casino spam to be fair.

    Can you send a copy of the email to the meister please Kassiap?

    I received two emails from two different affiliates. Neither mentioned Casinomeister, but it's interesting to note the contrast between the two emails. One had an unsubscribe button at the bottom...needless to say whoever this creep is I've never subscribed to get his/her spam...and the other had subscribe and report spam buttons. If I were to join this casino guess which affy link I would use.;)

    Yup I just received one too... reported it for whatever good that will do. And the links in the newsletter do have an affid (20125) but also the address "Lodolia investments ltd • av limassos 99 • limassol, 79277", so the affid may just be an in-house tracker.

    I had 5 or 6 of these in my junk mail folder, but none said anything about casinomeister.

    Although it brings up an interesting point. If a casino has received awards for Worst Casino, they can still say they won a Casinomeister award and they wouldn't really be lying. :rolleyes:

    I received the spam with a $45 no deposit coupon code. Decided to try (without clicking the affiliate link in the email) and sure enough the code was no longer working. Went to live chat and I was told that it was sent by a 3rd party and they don't control it. CS added $10 to my account for my trouble with a $400WR and a $50 max cashout. Lasted about 3 minutes at $0.25/spin.

    These guys are pushing out a lot of marketing publicity at the moment, touting Begado as a new online gambling venue with a US-friendly policy.

    Affactive Affiliates seems to be managing the affiliate marketing, and they've been involved in a dubious dispute reported elsewhere here at Casinomeister.

    The skinny is that the operator, Netad Management, also runs WinPalace and Slots Jungle, which have also had their 'historic' moments in the industry.

    Licencing is Curacao, which doesn't say much.

    If they are making extravagant claims about Casinomeister awards and London stock exchange listings I would be very careful.

    Sure enough, bait & switch. No doubt CS will "compensate" you for this "misunderstanding" by offering you 200% on your first deposit.

    As a player, ask them why a "third party" would go to the bother of sending such an email where you can see nothing in it for them unless the casino is paying them to do it. This could make CS, even management, sweat a bit over the answer.

    Then tell them you can find no evidence of their stock exchange listing, so have decided to go over to "this casinomeister place" to look for these awards they have won.......... then ignore their replies for a couple of weeks:icon_twis

    Got the same e-mail and thought,Hey,Give it a go,anything for a laugh.

    Coupon actually worked and off I went,and to my amazement made the playthrough.

    Then went on to withdraw and up pops a fax back form and underneath it it says"Withdrawals will not be processed without the returned form and a deposit is needed as well",needless to say,after reading up on them,decided to deposit £1,000 (NOT).

    Had some fun playing the games though.

    No, not quite bait & switch. The emails are not coming from the casino themselves but from affiliates, most of whom are using the same spam template. I've gotten a total of four affiliate emails for this casino...two from one affiliate and two from another. Affiliate 1 offered a $25 free chip, affiliate two offered $45. These free chip offers were authorized by the company to these affiliates as exclusive offers under their affy tags. It's standard practice for different affiliates to be able to offer bonuses depending on the relationship the affiliate has with the mother ship.

    Ergo, because Balthazar didn't use the affiliate tag he didn't get that affiliate's bonus. Of course, most people who receive unwanted spam might not know how exclusive affiliate bonuses work. Anyway, that's my take on the matter. YMMV.

    Slight derail...I see the brain trust at casinobonus2 are enticing signups for this casino using those same exclusive affiliate free chip codes, and his players are going apeshit because once again they're not getting the bonus that they're not entitled to...but once again casinobonus2 will make money from the dishonesty. What an effed-up business model.
