    What word(s) do you see being used illegally ?

    There seems no shortage of using the word FREE and it's legal definition being abused.

    I was inspired to create this thread due to :

    Which is then legally ruined by :

    Obviously, that's not "MONEY BACK" and this needs to be stopped. Money and bonus funds are not and never have been the same. I couldn't walk out of the old arcade and buy a maccies with a handful of 20p tokens.

    Apologies if this thread by definition LOL has been done before but in legal terms, this is still happening and shouldn't be. FYI AceKingdom is part of Ladbrokes.

    I do agree.

    Ladbrokes is a mess these days anyway and they sure never seem to do themselves any favours either!

    Risk Free they say hmmm, whats the chances of meeting the WR on their casino slots, that is the only way it is 100% money back and risk free and you should not have to do that.

    A company as Large as them could offer now and then (or for dormant players) a GENUINE risk free deposit which is refunded in CASH and instantly withdrawable.

    Chances are that the participant would play it back anyway!!!

    To be fair Jon Ladbrokes regularly offers risk free deposits and bonuses to their players again in their games section. And all the Games bonuses, cashback ,and occasional free bonuses all only have to be played through once before withdrawing. On my Birthday I got offered a 100% bonus up to £200 that would be added a couple of days later which also had 1x playthrough. Their games sections getting better all the time with the netent slots etc. Still don't play there that often but they have improved one hell of a lot in last year.

    Fair enough and a good pointer mate!

    For some strange reason I seem to never remember that they have the bulk of the Netent games these days and never consider them for a deposit since the removal of MG.

    However I do actually like a lot of Netent and also WMS which they have so I think maybe I am too hard on them and a bit stubborn too!

    Every Sports bet I make is in my local Laddies shop so I could also collect my winnings from online much quicker.

    Cheers for the input and heads up that they are improving, appreciated!

    Lol like you I use Ladbrokes for sports sometimes. But as I do most football bets online I go between 3 bookies sites. Hence reason I play Ladbrokes games sometimes tho wouldn't touch playtech.

    But might as well have my tinfoil hat moment here. Out of all the casinos ive played netent at. William Hills only one I regularly get good hit on JATB at and Ladbrokes is only site ive had several good wins on COTBL at. Just luck I guess but seriously in last year only good wins have been at bookies sites even tho I play slots less at them and I cant hit sod all at just plain casinos tho I play them more.

    Okay sorry.

    And I was sort of sticking to thread as you mentioned they were part of Ladbrokes so I was commenting that Ladbrokes does give back risk free cash with just the 1x playthrough.

    But this isn't about the times when companies use it a bit more fairly. :thumbsup: effectively dragged this off topic... it may be rescued, we'll see if it happens again.

    It was the same I brought up in regards to BetAt about that cashback promotion they had couple weeks back. BUT they decided to ignore my PM and also my posts despite I informed them even about my post as well. That is really disappointing but oh well.... :rolleyes:

    And yeah I don't wanna chase up on that again just wanted to mention it as its what this thread is about. I know they have plenty to deal with right now because of that dDOS attack so I will leave it be. They are a great brand and always very giving and do so many good things also for the Casinomeister community including also donations charity etc.

    For a UK licenced outfit, the answer would be to report all infringements to the ASA. If they see loads of complaints about misuse of terminology with protected legal meanings and misleading advertising content they will act. Quite a few online casinos have fallen foul of the ASA. It's unfortunate that the ASA can't issue summary fines for these offences, they can (and do) ban the advert from being used again in that form. It's only if such a ban is ignored, and the ad is used again in violation of the ruling, that a company might be hit in the pocket.

    However, if the ASA have to rule repeatedly against a specific company, this might arouse the interest of the UKGC, who have the power to remove their license and effectively kill their business. Misleading ads can fuel irresponsible gambling, so I would expect the UKGC to be "hot" on any misleading content that is against the interests of encouraging responsible gambling.
