I Have brought this up before but id like to bring it up again as im still not sure,

There is a new online casino , its powered by sheriff gaming , i want a few long time meister members to have a look and tell me what you think, the graphics on the site are crap , and certain games just... bewilder me.

is it ok to post the link to this site here or can i just say the nameof the casino and people can look it up?

lol , its called Solimates , Ive done some basic research on them , Nominet and things like that , they have a office based in London or at least thats where they say they are based , i looked up this place on google sat , and it really does not look like the kind of establishment where something like this would be based as it is a flat.

After that i emailed directly to the owner and asked a few questions etc.. His name is Tom

I also then went on to live chat a day later and it was Tom also running the Live chat ,

Also the Bonus WR don't really seem right.

I will take a look at some info in a sec, but can I ask why it is you ask these questions when you are already promoting them?

Edit: well they block access to anyone outside the U.K so not sure how much I am going to be able to find.

It's not a good idea to promote a casino before knowing them well...however, I DO see the validity when it's brand new as you can only sign up once so only one affiliate gets the gravy. But make sure at least, if you know nothing about them, tag a disclaimer 'sign up at own risk'

This is why im Searching them up, I run the site , not the Forum , Theres a deal in place with me and my partner regarding revenue earned from the forum adds and revenue from the site , My partner has allready made a Deal with Solimates , And thats why im curious as Deals don't happen that fast. I would like to take them off now to be honest as i dont no a thing about them , if i it turns out they are not up to it then i will have them off there very quick , but im giving my partner the benefit of the doubt as they are certain they are legit from what they haveseen and said between eachother , but.. i want to do some diggin my self which is why im researching them now

Based in a flat, with the owner doing the CS.


This is beyond fishy!

This reminds me of Pamper casino, which appeared to be based in a London Pizza shop, which they denied. Admittedly they were right, it was a takeaway, Google street view was out of date:p They are now based in Costa Rica.

Do the council know that Tom is running a casino from his flat? He should be paying business rates, and have applied for planning permission for a change of use from residential to business.

It would be worth doing some analysis of the IP address of the gaming server, and see if this is also in his flat. If so, this is an outright scam. If the server is at least in a jurisdiction that allows such operations, at best this is a very small operation, or a larger operation providing fraudulent operator details to players to hide where it is really based.

All this points to one thing, AVOID!!!!!!

It may turn out to be another Pamper style rogue from Costa Rica using a false UK address, but what makes this even MORE interesting is that it targets ONLY UK players. As such, it would merit attention from Trading Standards and the Gambling Commission, as a UK only casino should have a proper UK facing license, and they cannot argue that UK players just happen to form part of it's international business, and have joined of their own accord based on their own research. UK authorities are never going to believe that a casino that ONLY takes UK players does not do any marketing to the UK specifically, which would be covered even by the existing "must be licensed in a whitelisted jurisdiction".

As for you and your site, your clear agenda of going after the money and not bothering to look past the bank balance, instead of ensuring your visitors get the pick of the most well run operations, is damaging your business.

The more often you ask about a casino you have been promoting on your site because you "know nothing about them", the worse you make yourself look. It is YOU that should be in a position to answer such questions when asked by others, such as visitors to your site.

Its not making me look bad at all, If you check on our Website you will not find Solimates, It is only on our Forum and it is not Affiliated what so ever.(Which removes your theory of the Money) If it comes this place is fair then it will be Affiliated.

Ah and the company behind the operation is called Sugarpixel Ltd. Ring any Bells?
