eCOGRA and fortunelounge were not honest with me

I agree

22sithon, I share your same opinion with eCogra...

For me a site with their endorsment makes me think they probably just paid some $$ for that logo.

I would like people to relay more on the Meister here than on them however you go to go through ecogra for claims to casinos with their endorsments.

They were named #1 watchdog by gamblingonlinemagazine.com.. I think they just gave them that award for amount of sites endorsed by them.

If I ever have the chance to become more close to the watchdog world, I would never endorse a site before truly running a quality control test.

I have seen some problems in the forum with mummysgold.com endorsed by them as well.

I am a customer of the prima poker network my self, and honestly, somethings are just not right with them. 3 examples of sites endorsed by them have given me the doubt that they don't operate as they should.

Hey Fortune Lounge. Now that you're done beating up on old ladies, are you going to start torturing puppies?

This never should have made it to the boards, and your casino should be ashamed for having put this woman through all this.

Watchdog, when you're not knocking the USA you've been critical of eCOGRA in several of your posts and I would like to address your latest effort above.

Perhaps you would share with me your perspective of how operators achieve eCOGRA "Play It Safe" status, and what information you have that proves your viewpoint?

I'm interested to know how well informed you are on this.

Dirk, I know you have some pretty extreme views on operators, but is this really necessary....unless you know something that we don't?

That's a bit below the belt, Dirk. Not typical from you, even when you disagree you generally do it in a reasonable manner.

Don't know what it is, but the forums seem to be a lot hotter lately... maybe we need to repair the airconditioning or something :D

IMO people's BS tolerance meters are on over-load, I know mine is.

Nothing personal Spear...but...I doubt many if any casino support reps would attempt to feed you BS knowing your b/ground. Pity the same can't be said for the us, the other 1/2.

btw I've always found the fortunelounge rep to be fair and get things sorted out. (apart from my last post but that's cause he was away). So in that regard I feel that maybe a few people need to cut him some slack. Just my 2 cents worth!

:)

Maybe Dirk blew his top but Fortune lounge should really reconsider their Terms on confiscating winnings when all the player has done wrong is to withdraw twice without committing any fraud. Daylight robbery IMO.

If this is what Watchdog thinks of Ecogra I would like his opinion on Safebet(RTG).

That's a more than fair point chchu59 and something I think should be seriously considered and changed.

I actually agree with this, and as it becomes more widely known - and it will - it might be costly in a business sense for them.

However, I still believe Dirk's post was over the top.

I would be interested in your reply to Jetset's queries as well.

Can't help it; I'm a former Boy Scout with a soft spot for little old ladies :)

Anyway, I apologize to Fortune Lounge. I know they don't torture puppies, but I've heard they sometimes to unmentionable things to little kitty cats ;)

While were talking about FL, Id like them to send me a bonus every once in a while!

Hey FL, would it be too much to ask for you to send me a 20% max $100 bonus every now and then? I mean cmon. Youve left me hangin out here with no good places to play.
