I used to look forward to my monthly perks at the bookie sites. Its getting increasing difficult to find any deposit bonuses these days.

Still waiting for regulation on the irresponsible RTP system you know something that would protect players rather than just irritate us.
From what I understand is that the UKGC have more or less caved in to the Casinos regarding the changes to their VIP regulations in as much that from now on a new player to their VIP system is required to produce a SOW to confirm that they are able to join. It seems that what happens after that is largely still up to the casino.
I guess it pays to promote ex MP's to the casinos boards

For a gambler like me who gambles and will gamble anyway the following is a shit rule;

"Operators are also banned from incentivising customers based on losses".


I was always getting withdrawable cash bonuses from casinos I play, and it means from now on I won't get anything...

There is an article in the daily mail today , about a hairdresser VIP affiliate for Paddy Power hat benefitted from 25% of a customers losses.

for some reason it ended up in the high court , and flutter group have pledged to cancel all personal introducer agreements within 4 weeks.

By the sound of it any affiliate getting paid from a percentage of loss will be the next targets.

Are people really going to submit Source of wealth and fund documents so that operators can decide if you can afford to be part of the VIP program? And if you can't afford to be a part of the VIP program can you just play on site without the VIP tag and other VIP perks?

Doesn't really seem fair to the customers although I understand this is all about responsible gambling and not taking advantage of high value players.
