    The whole system's bonkled anyway and not there to protect the interests of the player.

    I guess too many casinos skirt around their RG requirements. I can set deposit limits at 'A' but revoke them within 24 hours. I can only set minimum limits at 'B' to 50 p/m based on their scroll-down options. Accounts can be closed & re-opened by myself at 'C', on-site. I can't close accounts permanently, only Self-exclude and be branded a problem gambler. Load of bollocks really.

    Here's a good idea. How about casinos implement fixed deposit limits, or at least subject to review after a few months? But no, RG doesn't quite extend that far.....because it might actually be helpful!

    Like when you get a online catalogue, you limits can only go up after every so often.

    Yes it’s all hypocritical really. I keep going back to bookmakers but it’s because this is an example of what actually happens within the industry. With the reduction in roulette stakes on FOBTS imminent I called in my local bookmaker the other day. I saw an old friend who’s self exclusion (due to losing a fortune on roulette) had expired. He had experienced a bad day losing £1,500 and said he was going to SE again. The manager practically begged him not to do so, saying that in a months time the roulette won’t be available in the same capacity and that he would be silly to SE. The guy is a problem gambler obviously and can lose enough on slots but who was the manager looking out for? The answers obvious and won’t be the only example of staff not doing their proper duty.

    I only read that as the manager having the guy's best interests at heart :p

    He knows when the roulette is gone the guy will just end up doing his nuts on the slots. As he is one of the “top ten” high rollers in the area they don’t want to lose him.

    Come May in the UK players must verify themselves fully before they can deposit. Those on Gamstop or on group exclusions will not be able to circumvent rules.

    I will tell you how easy it is to circumvent and get a verified account at the moment. I won't name names but as part of an investigation into several casinos it was found that signing up with an incorrect date of birth and still being able to pass the identity check were widespread even in cases where a passport was sent. It's simply dodgy and the UKGC have taken action recently. 3 big casinos fined and loads more close to the same. Pass marks have to go to MT Securetrade, SkillonNet, Nektan and Cassava. They have what's called "in depth checks" on sign up and they search their databases against many variables and can catch an excluded/Gamstop player easily. You would be amazed at some of the big names who failed hugely, some will not surprise anyone. I'm sure you will read about these soon
