amandajm, A poster at WOL, who has posted about Boss Media several times before and always seemed to have a considerable amount of knowledge about the inner workings/management of Boss, started all this by blowing the whistle on them. Once again his information proved true. He said that Boss told players the jackpots had all been won on a single day, I believe him 100%. Everything he has said in the past about Boss and this have been true. Go to WOL and read the thread if you want.

King said a player was told this by email Don.

Would like to see the wording and content of that email.

Spearmaster, according to the regulations of the Isle of Man, the players were and are the rightful owners of monies in progressive jackpots.

Isle of Man regulations is based on Nevada regulation. Progressive jackpots monies are considered held in trust for players by the casino or progressive operator, this is standard in the United States.

There's no question that Boss made a huge mistake.

Gamblers should be able to rely on the honesty and integrity of any casino that one of their own will eventually win all the money in the jackpot which they have contributed towards; just like any poker game! Not crooked casinos who want to sneak away money to bolster up their bottom line to make themselves look more able at moneymaking!

To toss in rubbish like "rightful owner" and "good response" comments etc. is really a case of rationalising webmasters trying to paint white what is absolutely pitch black IMO! If someone else had made such points they would have been slammed really hard. Ban me if you like Bryan...I really couldn't care less after seeing this rosier spin being put on such a dishonest act then compounded further by lies! Boss Media, you were great and now you are pathetic!

I came to edit my last sentence as I thought I should not be so stern with Spear and Bryan! But I could not, so it will have to remain LOL!

For me, one of the surprising and rather disappointing aspects of this story and the "removal" of these monies is that there appears to have been no reaction from the specialised gambling media, the IGC, the stock exchange / Boss shareholders or from the Isle of Man licencing people. These are all relevant and were all made aware of this issue, and yet only sites like Casinomeister and OPA have aired it.

It would seem that as long as Boss Media keep to their undertaking to redress the payout questions raised here they will cruise through this matter without even a word of warning or censure. At the very least it would have been reassuring to see a release or two approving of their candour but condemning the action that motivated it.

They would of course be mad NOT to keep to their undertaking as that would keep this debate open and vigorous.

It says something that is not very flattering about the level of concern from parties in this industry who should have a more vigilant and perhaps critical view about such bad practice, and the courage to make that opinion known.

I should add Winneronline to that list. Although they have seemingly avoided covering the story editorially (and I would have thought that was warranted) they have allowed it continued exposure on their forum, where the story originated.

Hi Vickinz,

Ban you?? You almost made me choke on my corn flakes!!! As I mentioned before, my "good response" comment was in response to the spirit of their explanation not specifically the content. A lot of this had not yet been hashed out in public. Most software providers remain silent when there are questionable practises aired, yet this company chose to be vocal about the situation, thus the comment.

I've been away since the third, but since this thread is still active, I'll be checking into this as time permits.

Oh well Bryan I couldn't resist playing Gold Club's promo, and was paid promptly as I have always been. >,sigh<, I rationalised that Boss Media will be very careful to do the right thing now that they need to prove themselves to some of us all over again.
