Got the following email today.

Hey kingkong098,

How about getting up to $99.00 FREE to play your favorite Casino Games?

Just play between Wednesday, May 26th and Thursday, May 27th, and use coupon code SUPER33 before making a minimum deposit of $33.

So remember just use coupon code SUPER33 before making a minimum deposit of $33.00 and get an instant $33.00 FREE to play your favorite casino games*!


There's a link to the terms in the email which comes up as this: Link Removed ( Old/Invalid) (screenshot below).

1st the chat agent tells me there are no bonuses currently, then they tell me the bonus is slots only despite the terms clearly stating
The 33/33 coupon lets you play almost any game in the casino
and
Wagers made on Baccarat, Craps, Roulette, Blackjack and 21 games, Video Poker, Multi-Hand Video Poker and Sic- Bo will not count towards the wagering requirements.

Next thing I know the web page disappears. Support continues to insist the bonus is slots only despite the evidence shown. Here's my chat.

The intention may have been to make it slots only, but the info in their email and website clearly states otherwise.

Rod Myers: Welcome to Casino33! How can I help you today?

Blunder or intentional, the casino should have to honour the program as advertised and emailed to its players. Stubbornly sticking to their guns when they are wrong doesn't say much for their integrity.
