I just had this from Casino Rewards!!

This is plumbing new depths of deception.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi there,

It's been a while since we saw you at one of our CasinoRewards.
I'm mailing to keep you in the loop of the best promotions.
My personal recommendation is the latest bonus at CaptainCooksCasino. $500 free and 1 hour to use it to see how much you can win. I'm sure you'll agree that's a pretty good offer for such a popular casino.

As you've come to expect playing with Casino Rewards, the award winning CaptainCooksCasino showcases all the latest video slot machines featuring incredible graphics and game-play, and of course card and table games including blackjack and roulette.

This bonus has been very popular so far and won't last long, so there is not much time left.

If you need any help depositing or withdrawing your winnings, contact our support.

See you soon and enjoy all the fun and games

Good Luck

Gary Cooke

This is "spam" fron one of Casino Rewards OWN SUBCONTRACTED MARKETING AGENCIES!!!!
Worse, it is deliberately misrepresented as an offer for me to "come back" (I am an existing player already).

I know better, the clue is here "and one hour to use it". I instantly recognised this as the NEW PLAYER bonus, and it is not a bonus at all!! This message has been deliberately misconstructed to make me think this is one where I deposit to receive $500 into my existing account, at which point CS would deny all knowledge of the offer, but they would have $500 most probably (even though required deposit is stated, I expect most would just assume it to be a 100% bonus).

The opening sentence "It's been a while since we saw you at one of our CasinoRewards" is yet another deliberate attempt to fool me into believing I have received a PERSONAL invitation from none other than the casino host himself to receive my $500". This also was so well done that it walked right through my spam filters, which are normally so damn trigger happy that 90% of my GENUINE offers get tagged as spam.

Form previous correspondence with Casino Rewards, they have admitted that they passed my basic details (not everything though) to their marketing companies to send out all the promotional materials for existing players, and that I could only unsuscribe to the lot, not just the "invites" to the new casinos I don't yet have accounts at.


......and now for some fun;)


Casino Rewards have allocated me a VIP host of my own (yes, they bought all the Casino Action casinos over time, and saw how breathtakingly enormous my "Action" had been after they pissed me off in 2004, and I defected to Casino Action.)

I shall see if I can get a $500 advantage over them for this cheek and deception.:D

Here is my email
It's been a while since we saw you at one of our CasinoRewards casinos. I'm mailing to keep you in the loop of the best promotions.

My personal recommendation is the latest bonus at CasinoClassic. $500 free and 1 hour to use it to see how much you can win.

As you've come to expect playing with CasinoRewards, the award winning CasinoClassic showcases all the latest video slot machines featuring incredible graphics and game-play, and of course card and table games including blackjack and roulette.

Now i had started a thread few weeks back, stating that I had closed any kinda casino account i had with this rewards group. My response from my thread was there was many of us that did the same. When i deleted the accounts and emailed them i had told them also reasons behind this. I asked to be removed from mailing lists also and told them players are TIRED of emails offering us promotions that dont apply to us. This is just another way of us downloading the casino again and maybe depositing with their group.
Not only that it gets confusing you join one of their casinos you get a dif player name yet your casino rewards name is suppose to stay the same yet when you sign up with them they dont give you the option of keeping the same cr name so then you get hit with bonus abuse.
When i emailed them and in live chat asked about this they told me player should know enough to inform casino that they have a casino rewards account and change it over to the other name. I said most players just want to play and not bother with any of that. If they want it that way then they should be the ones setting up the system for us not us doing their work for them. For me was a cover up if you take a bonus and hit something and didnt know you had to casino rewards account they plain and simple dont have to pay you.

Sadly, not so. I logged into Captain Cooks, and there was no sign of them having given me another crack of the "free 500" flash insert.

They do indeed say it is "bonus abuse" if you join another of their casinos from one of these invites, but only if you win with it.

They also pay slower than other MG casinos, having a 48 hour mimimum pending period, rather than the more usual 24 hours.

Most of their promotions are crap, but every so often they come up with a decent one. Not playing for a period of time usually improves the special offers, and often (for me) leads to offers of 500 or even 1000 bonuses, sometimes as 50% of deposits.

Be wary of using "autoplay" with an unfinished bonus, they can use that against you.

Since they saw my monster turnover from Casino Action records, they have not tried anything on with me, although this could always change.

Their offers are better than the shite I get from MiniVegas, which is 10% or 20% with some pretty harsh rules to even qualify for the extra chips.

Most definately spam.

I have recieved loads of emails from the Casino Rewards group.

several from blackjack ballroom

one from casino classic

and several from golden tiger casino.

I have never joined any of the casinos in this group. I don't know where they got my email address from, but it most certainly wasn't given to them by me.

Have forwarded my complaint to Ryan @ Rewards Affiliates . com
