Askgamblers fake?!

    Hi dear casinofriends,

    I don't know if I'm allowed to even say this, but Askgamblers seems like a fake suggestive casino promoting site. I see people who wrote over 2400+ reviews reviewing casino sites at Askgamblers (against their T&C. Also they have high ratings of casino's who aren't even respecting responsible gaming and supporting their clients with issues.

    For instance some rogue casino's are still high rated and my reviews of genuine experience get deleted there without any explanation.

    It seems to me they get funds from some casino's to seem very reputable companies so when a potential player googles the casino they end up there.

    I heard that many complaints also don't get accepted even with genuine evidence.

    I don't know if you guys already suspected this or your views about it.

    I'm glad that Casinomeister is a really genuine site/forum to do your research before playing at a casino.

    Greetings

    Skephan

    Money from affiliation far outranks ethics at AG. They had to be dragged kicking and screaming just to remove Affiliate Edge/Affpower sites and that was only because the pressure got too much for them. It became a lot worse when Catena bought them out a couple of years back. They promote plenty of sites rogued here or grey-zoned.

    AG is a joke, but that is my opinion.
    They indeed promote rogue casinos and have no issues leading their readers into damnation.
    Stick to Casinomeister and you will be fine,if you would have an issue with a CM accredited casino you have a good chance it can be resolved in a decent manner with the PAB option here.

    I sure wish I had found CM BEFORE AG, got badly stung by one of AG's 'Highly Recommended' casino's and then by their bullshit 'Impartial' arbitration! Will always stick with and be guided by CM. :thumbsup:

    Well glancing at their Pornhub thread (which came nowhere near our own) I'm sure I saw their mods give Pornhub Casino the ok, provided they pay fast and don't mess players around, which kind of says it all.

    I guess anything sorta goes there :eek2:

    It's all about the money. And only about the money.
    The keyword is *only*, not *money*.

    And I concur too lol.

    I was done over to the tune of 3.5k by one of their ‘trusted/recommended’ sites (also listed as UK).
    False reviews appeared frequently but they weren’t interested when I told them.

    The plus side of it all was that I ended up here where everything is above board and honest (unless it’s posted by @goatwack lol)...

    Can’t help wondering what @LadyJelena thinks about the OP.....

    The biggest issue I have with AG is that they promote unlicensed (non UKGC) casinos to UK players despite each page carrying the Union Jack and recognising you are connecting via a UK IP address.

    There was a video posted on YouTube a few months back (which was swiftly removed - but I still have a copy ;)) from a casino manager detailing how much he was 'to pay' for higher rankings and a front page listing.

    At CM the experiences, opnions and advice are genuine wich really contributed to an online comradery but also a safe haven for us players. Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks this way about AG. What do you ladies think about the OP;)

    :thumbsup: Cheers buddies ... have a cold one :cheers:

    Oh my, still have to learn forum language :D

    Is this because I used to work there? :) Didn't know members know this fact :D

    Well, the only thing I can say is that AskGamblers team (based in Belgrade) is really great, a bunch of cool and creative young people, but honestly I didn't like the website being sold to Catena. This happened not long after I left. Catena is too big and commercial, so I was afraid AG will lose a lot from their genuineness and personal, close approach to their players, afterwards. But guess it's the usual destiny of websites bough by giants.

    I also like lots of the articles they publish and design as well, so I'm a bit sad reading the negative player experiences. Spent there working for 4 years, from the period it was still a handful team, so I'm very happy and proud they grew this big, but still I'd never like to be part of this kind of concept where everything can be bought, reportedly.

    So happy that Casinomeister still sticks to the right values ^_^

    That is exactly why I wondered what your thoughts and feelings were. But then felt a little bit bad to have asked sorry.
    I was curious about a view from the inside of the site... knowing how genuine and honest you are.

    They had to be persuaded more than most, that is true. With both Bryan and myself on their case regarding Affiliate Edge. But, to be fair, they finally did the right thing.
