Dread going on there again now I know they are monitoring my account it just gets me fuming that I’m being told how many spins I have done bear in mind over the 7 day period most of them spins were trying to get bonanza to bonus :/

I think it's just an auto-generated message which simply gets send to all of their customers. I reckon nowadays, such site features are "must-have or the-way-to-go" for the UKGC.

Casinos should monitor all players account, all they have their own triggers and then decide when interact with player or take what ever action. You are not alone with account monitoring :)

Monitoring accounts is what one expects, after all it keeps me safe in the knowledge that they got my back, and care.

Also shows they always have their eye on the ball at all times, should the need arise for them to check play styles or detect fishy betting patterns prior to voiding big wins, in combination with the software provider of course!

But really they can throw stats my way until the cows come home. It's when they utilize those stats to prohibit my gambling is where the problem lies

It seems to be happening all over, loads of nagging with implied accusations re being a problem gambler. I haven't had a spin/bet count relayed to me though, but more general 'activity alerts' and 'do you know you can use our responsible gambling controls' even the day after I lost about a tenner :rolleyes:

probably a generic, tick box operation to please the ukgc and convince them they take responsible gambling seriously, all the while most of the games take an hour to get 1 bonus if you're lucky, or games like royal mint which dangle an extra special bonus if you play the game for 5 hours, but it turns out this extra special bonus is 99 times/100 ***t :mad:

I hate these new message pop-ups reminding me how much I'm down in a session, every hour, talk about triggering me to chase even more! :oops: :laugh: :(

Yeah messages can be a pain in the ass.

Opened a game on WH today to get a pop up saying i had been playing for 0 minutes and lost 0 did i want to continue.

Looked at it and decided i didn't want to continue as i was only loading that game to see what it was as was a newer one i had never played lol.

Those bloody popups that appear (usually during a feature) drive me insane. I scream at the screen "fuck offfffffff" when they pop up.
Yeah agree mate the rage it happened other day pop up during bonus and it said you’ve been playing for an hour it kicked me out the game and restarted game bonus was trash as well makes ya wonder lol

Most volatile slots take 5000 bets to bonus :laugh:
Imagine having a wager requirement the pop up would be something like ‘please try and beat the wager with the least amount of spins possible’ so we don’t have to keep popping up

more nanny state bullshit that just winds me up day after day,how about a function for the rest of us who are quite happy about the control we have over gambling that enables us to turn off the endless messages which quite frankly makes me feel patronized

Agree with the box ticking exercise, getting automatic emails the next day after playing with PP and Sky Vegas .

I don’t think playing for an hour is excessive. Especially after just going after a bonus which doesn’t appear for 2 hours ....

They should be sending messages to the providers , “the player has spent 2 hours and 2000 spins without a bonus , if you think this is not responsible gambling then please reprogram your games “

Its getting outrageous isnt it, lost count of the amount of casinos i am done with due to this kinda BS, seems the best thing for quitting gambling in 2020 is actually attempting to gamble..

They have started a shit load of bingo groups on bakebook over here which is a fucking nightmare waiting to happen.
I was quizzing my mates wife on how these games work you order the amount of books you want and they have local sellers in the greater Belfast area who deliver to your door (cash on delivery) if you were lucky enough to win they Paid by bank Transfers until they had their bank accounts closed due to anti money laundering.
Now if you win the cash gets delivered to your door this is a fucking nightmare waiting to happen and I suspect could be a nightmare for Facebook for hosting unlicensed gambling.

It's not many months ago when it was posted here and discussed quite widely that based on UKGC additional COVID security, all sessions over one hour need to be considered possibly harmful (first version IIRC was to interact with all who reach that one hour but the phrasing was a bit changed as making it mandatory to email, call, send pop-up to all who play one hour would be quite a spamming :)
