    Following on from the thread about Casumo offering free spins on Mega Fortune with the chance of winning the jackpot, where it transpired that a progressive jackpot could not be won from free spins. - confirmed and apologised for by the Casumo rep.

    I came across this advert on Facebook from LeoVegas

    LeoVegas _ misleading advertising ??: ScreenHunter_01 Jan. 20 16.57.jpg,Jan 20, 2016

    They do offer 20 free spin, on sign up, and there is the option to play those 20 free spins on Mega Fortune Dreams.

    But how do you WIN £2 MILLION, when it's not possible to win a progressive jackpot from free spins???? :confused:

    The link goes directly to the LeoVegas registration page, and there doesn't appear to be any affiliates tags. So I'd assume the advert is from LeoVegas themselves :eek:

    These sort of adverts are not good for newbies, inexperienced players or those who have no understanding and maybe taking their 'first step' into the world of online slotting.

    Us more experienced players would see that what this actually means is, Play your free spins (from which you cannot win any PJP's) but with the monies won (if these is more than the usual 10p) you can use these funds to then try and win a JP!

    More poor advertising than misleading IMO but that would be their argument and if I am totally honest I would go as far to say that these sort of adverts are specifically aimed at the inexperienced with the hope they may be 'sucked' in and never in a fully confident position to totally understand what is going on anyway.

    I agree that it is a terrible promotion and they could have just as easily picked any other slot to give the 20 free spins on.

    Players new to this gambling malarkey might actually be under the impression that they have a legitimate shot at winning a fortune when in reality it is just a farce.

    Imagine what that would do to one's psyche if the jackpot was triggered only to find out it was a sham.

    So if anything it's just cynical marketing and LeoVegas are under no illusion that no player will ever realistically hit the big one with 20 spins, let alone at minimum value.

    I did expect a bit more from them but then casinos still believe many of us came down in the last shower unfortunately :mad:

    Well, it's not that it's unrealistic - it's impossible. The PJP can't trigger during FS.
    So everyone's psyche is safe for anoher day.

    Did we not go through that not too long ago?

    You cannot win the jackpot with the free spins but you might win the jackpot with the winnings from the free spins.

    There are probably several layers of T&Cs to cover their behinds., or maybe not.

    Read the fine print baby, ready the fine print.

    Not casino related, but less than 3 hours a discussion about Uber on NY eve... drunk and don't scroll down.

    Even I got caught back in the spring for something were the conditions are below the accept button. I should and do know better, pretty much immediate cancel when I read on confirm, again not gambling.

    I started working as a legal secretary in 1977, I've read the fine print ever since.
