    Dan: Hopefully, they can find out what my original deposit is! I suppose in everything there is a risk so we just have to try to take calculated risks.

    Ok for you guys looking for the island casinos
    First let me say good luck. The credit card processer is handa lopez inc out of sunnyvale Ca.
    Their phone number is 1-888-426-4643. That number is like their email address, no good.
    So if someone has recently purchased chips from this casino, maybe you could get another phone number from your bank. In the meantime, Nuke em

    and file a complaint against them here Internet fraud: You must register/login in order to see the link. The toll-free telephone number for the organization, which will connect you, the website says, to a "counselor" who will take all of the relevant information and assist you in getting the complaint to the proper authorities, is (800) 876-7060.
    I will let you know what happens

  5. Dan and David Hess: Surely the casino would back-up their data? I certainly hope that would be the case. Any casino owners out there care to comment?!

    Depending on what data was lost and what credit card processer was used, they should be able to easily check your purchases. If not, something is really wrong with them. Most casino's use a seperate company for processing purchases. If a hacker somehow got into the casino software it should not affect the credit card companies records.

  9. Casino owner: So if a hacker got into the casino software then my credit card info would not be effected, but what about the gaming info? I understand that most casinos use a separate company for purchases, (for example, The Lucky Nugget use Proc Cyber services), but what about the actual gaming data? Could that be changed to benefit the hacker without the casinos knowledge?!

    What do you mean gaming data? How many hands you played and the outcome? Or the odds? It is possible I suppose for a hacker to change your data. Like how many hands you played ect. That would not benefit anyone. They could never change the odds. One thing to remember, I have owned a very popular casino for about three years now. And never ever had a hacker get in. It is next to impossible.

    I am new to video poker. I would like to learn more about how to play. Is anyone an expert or is there a book I can buy?
  14. Jul 7, 1999
  15. Hi Ron,
    You may want to speak to Steve Adkins: He seems to concentrate on video poker with his gaming. You would probably also find plenty of info by simply reading through this forum!
    Casino owner,
    Thanks for your reply.

    Steve, it was a pleasure watching you win the video poker tournament in Atlantic City. Are you going to compete anywhere again soon? And I have to be nosy, Out of the $75,000 was there any taxes that they took?

    I would like to get some input on what players think in general of the EOGA, Ethical Online Gaming Authorities, and the IGC, Interactive Gaming Council. Do you find their role important for improving the services in general offered to the players. Would you be less reluctant to connect to sites adorning their logos or are you indifferent to it?
    I am a rookie when it comes to online gaming and so far I have not seen many sites with a banner from these associations.
    Thanks for your input on this subject.

  31. Kris: You can read all the forums and all the various sites dedicated to reviewing online casinos for an overview of what the particular casino offers. However, the only way you're ever going to see if a casino is good or not is by trying them out. By this I mean call there support line and ask them a few questions; Do they even have a 24/7 support system in place? Also, buy with small increments to start with. Maybe they have an evaluation system where you can try out there software for free? I know of a few casinos that do offer all of these facilities and when I've called (no matter what time of day/night) they're able to help me. I guess what I'm trying to say is get a "feel" for the casino and play within your means initially. Research before you spend!

    Thanks a lot for your advice Frank, it has not fallen into a deaf ear. Just because these companies are vouched by some gaming body shouldn't implicitly mean that they are reliable. we are never better served than by ourselves.
    What about an association representing the online players, does it exist? after browsing the web for a while I come to realize that there are at the very least 500,000 regular players on the net. (Maybe this is only the top side of the iceberg) This is a very good forum, but(hey I am a laymen, tell me if I am completely of the track) I have a hunch there should be more to this than just "A forum"?

    Player Association? Now that is a hell of an idea
  38. Jul 10, 1999
  39. Hi Kris,
    I think there are FAR MORE than 500,000 regular players on the internet, but a lot of them either don't know about Forums such as this one, or are not willing to participate in active discussions. I personally find it difficult to keep up with all the activities that occur here, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy dropping by and checking on what has happened! I think this is a good forum and the fact that Brian keeps in touch with what happens is great. A players Association is a good idea if it is well regulated and if it has a central figure to mediate! But then I guess that is exactly what Brian has achieved with this forum.
