deucebag VS RedRabbit Casino

    Took their first deposit bonus, played Aces & Faces video poker, and lost. Took their second deposit bonus, played Aces & Faces video poker, and won. But no, they confiscate my money. Reason: I played Aces & Faces Video Poker. They claim this was restricted through their terms and conditions:

    Turnover/play on all Classic Blackjack variations, all versions of Atlantic City Blackjack, all versions of Vegas Downtown Blackjack, all versions of Vegas Single Deck Blackjack and all Vegas Strip variations, all Aces Video/Power Pokers, Jacks or Better Video/Power Pokers, all Baccarats, all Craps, Red Dog, Sic Bo, all Progressive Games and all 3 card poker games, do not count towards the turnover requirement for this bonus.

    Fair or not? I think the only reasonable interpretation of those terms is that "All Aces" video poker, and "Jacks or Better" video poker, are restricted, but other video poker games are allowed. The clue here is apparently the small "a" in "all". I have never heard of a category of games called "Aces video poker" before, so it never occured to me that it meant to include all the video poker games that have "Aces" somewhere their name.

    Interestingly, they say "We trust that you did not want to abuse our bonus offer on purpose, and you will be granted bonus for your future play if you wish so".

    So they don't think I was abusing their bonus, but they still confiscate my winnings simply because they can. So much for the theory that casinos will only invoke such "gotcha" terms for fraudsters/abusers. They were happy to take my first deposit loss, even though I played Aces & Faces.

    .

    I am not familiar with this casino. Took a quick look and was a bit surprised to see it was a Microgaming casino.

    Anyway. The rule you are referring to does not say anything about restricted games in my opinion. It only says that if you play any of these games, then your play do not count towards the turnover requirement (although you are free to play them if you wish).

    So my opinion is that the casino can not confiscate your winnings based on the rule you mentioned (I am not familiar with other rules they may have).

    A little further down in their terms they state:

    Note: If you play on the excluded games (0%) before meeting the playthrough requirements, then you agree that the casino holds the right to void any winnings and bonuses, at our discretion.

    More bullshit. They screwed up, and are now trying to claim that the words "all Aces" now has a different meaning to that intended when they made the terms. They banned the two variants "All Aces" and "Jacks or Better", but they are now using "spirit of the bonus" because you simply found the next best VP in the line that they had not yet banned. You also got it wrong, it's 4-UP Deuces Wild, not Aces and Faces:p

    I bet we will see those terms updated soon with Aces and Faces included. When they do, clobber them with a "retrospective application of terms" complaint.

    If they are MGS, how come I have not heard of them, especially if they have the fruities;)

    It's not true MGS, but another of those Quickfire type multi-vendor platforms that carry games from different providers. This one claims it is a new concept, but it has been beaten to it by others. They boast a seamless integrated bonus management policy over all products.

    They have a couple of "interesting" rules too;)

    Thanks for your support. Video poker games only counted 5% against the wagering requirement (aside from the 0% ones), so I didn't exactly choose the game for "easy" playthrough.

    That's quite a WR, but they do have those "spirit of the bonus" type terms, so I expect this is what they are really using, but are trying to pretend it is a simple case of playing an excluded game. Playing a 5% weighted game is not against the terms, so they are going to have to come up with another excuse. They ban Blackjack completely, so why not a straight forward ban on all Video Pokers, or even say "slots only" as many casinos now do (watch out for the excluded slots though, even slots players are not safe now).

    Turn right, then right. then right again
    It's got nothing to do with spirit of the bonus.

    It is a clear case of the casino f**king up by not including aces and faces in their banned list, and trying to pull the wool by insisting that by "all Aces video poker" they meant all video poker's with the word "ace" in them, and not just "All Aces" like any intelligent and logical person reading it would think.

    Refusing winnings based on the capitalization of one letter smacks of amateur hour. Operators who pull stunts like this need to be called out and put up to the membership and others reading as an example of a casino to avoid like dodgy clams........and the best way to do that is to get them rogued, and the best way to do that is to PAB.

    At best it is a case of ambiguous terms being applied unfairly.

    At worst it is a case of deliberate theft of legitimate winnings....the operator equivalent of a "fraudster".

    Stop posting deucebag and PAB.
