Casino-On-Net : Complaint Filed With Directorate of Offshore Gaming



A complaint was filed against Casino-On-Net
by me with the Directorate of Offshore Gaming
on October 18, 2001.

The complaint states that Casino-On-Net refuses
to pay me bonus money owed from their September
26, 2001 "Shaken, Not Stirred" promotion.

The complaint also mentions that other players
have also not been paid money owed them from
this promotion.

I have asked the Directorate to investigate
my claim and the claims of others that have
been denied such bonuses.

The Directorate of Offshore Gaming is the
government regulatory agency for on-line casinos
licensed in the countries of Antigua and Barbuda.

For information :
Factorx, I think Casino-On-Net should pay you, but they may be able to sneak out of paying because the terms/conditions in thier email that said a min deposit is required that day.

The problem is that they did not list specifics, and that is thier own fault. Neither on the website or in thier email did it list the amount of deposit required. Then after the fact, they tell you it was $50. This was an unwritten requirement.

The big question is whether or not the Directorate of Offshore Gaming will force them into paying up.
I personally doubt this. Don't hold your breath.

Did you make any deposit that day? If not, you're in for an uphill battle. I'm not saying your complaint doesn't have merit, it DOES.

But regardless of how vague thier requirement was,
the email still said to make a deposit that day.
Casino-On-Net denied myself and other
members winnings due us from the September
26, 2001 "Shaken, Not Stirred" promotion.
We were denied primarily for failing to
deposit the day of the promotion.

Those of us who read the promotion at
Casino-On-Net's website did not see this
deposit requirement. And for good reason:

Vahe Baloulian , Casino-On-Net manager,
said earlier on another message board that
"The website you are referring to simply
displays the calendar of events." Vahe
also said "We always give our members the
benefit of a doubt."

The actual color-coordinated disputed
website promotion was sent as an attached
file to the Directorate of Offshore Gaming,
often called the Antiguan Gaming Commission.

The actual text from that file follows.
You be the judge.

Even before the Events...
As millions of people around the world, I was glued to the Internet trying to persuade myself that what I am seeing is simply a Hollywood show.
Alas... I was brought to reality by troubled looks of our employees who have relatives working in Twin Towers.
Fortunately, all of them are safe and sound and we hope for fast recovery of those who suffered and pray for the victims of this terrible tragedy.
