Hi everyone,

I hope this hasn't been posted already, but I couldn't see any information anywhere.

In the accredited casino list, I decide I want to try Go Wild Casino - so I clicked through, and it takes me to lucky247 Casino.

I also searched Google for Go Wild, clicked the first (main) link, and it again took me to lucky247.

I can't see anything about them rebranding, so am I being really stupid here about something, or is lucky247 a UK arm of Go Wild?

Thanks!

Alex

This is a redirect from go wild it self, As go wild do not accept U.K no more, I wonder if the boss knows about this??

When the U.K rules come into affect a few sites that decided to not take U.K no more & directed you to other sites, I still getting spam from theses sites asking me to sign up to another one, Take casinoU.K for example, that was the domain for a casino site, Now its a affiliate site lol,

I bought this up when aload of sites decided to leave U.K some links in the accredited section bought you to this casinoUK site (affiliate) If this is the case and mesiter is getting no credit for thios than I feel sorry for go wild, Some poor chap could come n and click the gowild link and be bought to 24 and get ripped of, And not much can be done about it

Go Wild simply has no UK license. They probably signed a deal with Lucky247 for the traffic they are forwarding to them.

Don't register at Lucky247, plenty of complaints and FU rules in their T&C's.

If you want a MG download casino then try 32RED or Roxy Palace.

If our traffic is being redirected to non-accredited casinos, that is unacceptable - double much so if I was never informed. I'm awaiting word from Gia to see what's up with this.

Spintee is 100% correct.
When Go Wild left the UK market in Dec 2013, they sold all their UK players to 32Red (and they all stopped playing - what a coincidence!).

After that, anyone in the UK trying to visit the Go Wild website got automatically re-directed to 32Red.
I guess this was only a 2-year deal, because since around the beginning of this year, visitors have been re-directed to Lucky247 instead.

A lot of affiliates are very unhappy about this, as there was (and still is) no forward linking.
Other casinos just have a pop-up saying "sorry, we don't accept players from your country" - but Go Wild chose a different route... :(

And no one brought this up here? WTF? This is totally unacceptable. When players click through these links, they expect to arrive at a casino that has been vetted and meets the accredited standards. Redirecting them to a casino that lost its accreditation is totally effed up. Newbie players don't know different. There is a reason why Lucky247 or other non-accredited casino are not accredited.

This is another reason why everyone should install the C2O
https://www.casinomeister.com/c2o/

This will tell you what the status of a casino is at Casinomeister. Use that, and you will see that Lucky247 was removed from the Accredited section.

The mail problem from the player's viewpoint is the lack of information as to WHY they have been redirected. They click on GoWild, and without any explanation they are shown the landing page for Lucky247. As demonstrated by the OP, this can cause confusion as to who they are really about to sign up to, especially as they may have clicked the link in response to a good review they have just read, and would probably assume that the casino they were redirected to was a "sister site" to the one they were expecting, and with the same levels of service as they would have expected from the review.

This could be happening more than one might think, but you could only tell by visiting from one of the countries they are picking to redirect, anyone else will get the site they expected. The UK is one such country, but there are others that might exhibit this issue, Canada for example due to the NetEnt crackdown and previous pull outs by other softwares. Australia may also see a rush for the exit in response to the recent law changes, something that Aussie players have already begun to experience.

Being from the UK, now i think understand why the only casino to offer me a £5 birthday bonus at the beginning of this year was Gowild. Thought it was a bit overly generous at the time, especially from somewhere i don't recall ever depositing (if so, once max) - in comparison to others where i do deposit & got offered nothing that same day (except for 20 spins from Spingenie).
Can't help but be left thinkin now that perhaps the random fiver was not to different from a shih tzu being pulled off the bed by a huge plastic bone that had been dipped in gravy b4 being dangled above it's head in an attempt to lure it outside into the cold where the kennel awaits :sob:
