    I just got a casino rewards newsletter. I used to have an account at Blackjack Ballroom, when I was trying out several casinos with Gonegambling back in the good old days. I wish I had thought to cut and paste it here. It was disgusting. Story about someone winning about $290,000 who really needed it to help a 95 year old mother and some other family problems, etc.
    Their point was to keep trying to win and your time will come. I thought it was a terrible newsletter article. To me, gambling is with disposable income only.

    All of these "gambling success" stories have the same pattern: the wife was gambling online in the middle of the night, she won something big, and then went to wake her husband up to show him and/or have him confirm that she actually won.

    I think this is the third story like this in the recent couple of months, and they don't all come from CR if I remember correctly. Perhaps it is Microgaming who is fabricating these stories. Kind of like their slots games - just take something that was created a long time ago and repackage it as something new.

    Stories

    As with all these, they are sent in by players in the hope of winning a bonus for any that are published. CR does not seem to offer such a reward, but every newsletter contains an invitation to send the stories in. Players keen to win are probably just working to a formula - I cannot see how these tales can be verified, they are published as is. Authors are identified by their first name and initial (surname) if at all, maybe just a location.
    It is even possible that casinos keep good ones back in case they have a dull month, or need to drum up trade.

    "Everyone has a big win eventually" - well, this is true, and can be proved mathematically. I believe such a proof was done ages ago, I believe it featured Primates, Typewriters, and a well known English Playwright of old:D


    Of more interest to the dedicated whore is the current promotion. Each day, $500 goes to the player who plays the longest on any progressive. The only criteria is that one spin per minute is necessary in order to be considered to be playing. Clearly, one spin for every minute of the day guarantees a win, this requires considerable dedication, and lots of caffeine, but is pretty +EV unless too many players tie for first place.
    If I had 2 computers (in the same place) I would be having a go at this myself. I would use my Windows 98 PC, and would thus not be requiring any caffeine!

    Spot on. This newsletter is a true lack of judgement on CR's part. Sure we can use our winnings to pay the doctor bills and sustenance for our elderly parents, but it should never ever been in the scope of financial support.

    What are you trying to say here, Casino Rewards? What the hell is this?

    It's perfectly acceptable for a casino to publish accounts of people winning big prizes on slot machines, but it's completely irresponsible to tug on the heart-strings with stories like the one you posted.

    I wish the geniuses :rolleyes: running casinos like this could be taught not to do this type of promotion. It must be a contributing factor to the right-wing U.S. anti-gambling types.

    What I want to know is if they tried to pay the jackpot in installments of $4k a week again?! And I agree, stories like this shouldn't be used - CR should know better.

    I wouldn't play there again even if I could. This type of thing disgusts me, and I can tell from the thread that I am in good company. Thanks to the member who did cut and paste the article so you would all see what they published. :thumbsup:

    i doubt this is in line with eCOGRA's "responsible advertising" practises.

    Maybe eCOGRA would be interested in the email.

    Scrutiny

    I have had another think - it turns out there IS enough information here to verify the validity of this story, and astonishingly this stands up to scrutiny as being a genuine player's tale!

    From the information, Saturday 14/10 at Virtual City with Major Millions (sounds like Cluedo:D )

    I have the following:-

    This also gives the name of the "anonymous player" to the usual level (first name + initial). All data in this entry matches the clues in the tale. We can, of course, comment that the player has a dangerous attitude to gambling, or that they have simply presented CR with a nice tale to publish in the euphoria of the win.

    It could be considered in bad taste to publish such tales without a disclaimer pointing out the dangers of playing with the attitude portrayed in the tale. Unlike the Jackpot Factory, CR are guilty of no more that publishing a player's tale without reinforcing the ethos of "responsible gaming" as a postscript.
