Question Local jackpot slot removed?

    Hi guys,

    Bit of a weird one here, but I thought if anyone is going to have an answer, it'll be you guys on here!

    So over the past few years, I have played a lot of "Deal or no Deal - The Banker's Riches" on a high stake. I have seen the jackpot (and this is a local jackpot, not a cloud jackpot spread across multiple sites) for this particular stake go from £20k to £90k with Grosvenor Casinos online. I know for sure that is down to primarily my own contributions, as this slot isn't played much, and I have had hundreds of thousands of spins on this slot over the years, without the jackpot being won.

    Recently, this slot has been removed from Grosvenor Casinos, and I have asked the question - what happens here? What happens to that huge jackpot fund, given that it wasn't (to the best of my knowledge) won? This was around two months ago now, and despite chasing up several times they tell me they are still awaiting an investigation with the supplier.

    Given that this jackpot took a chunk of % out of the RTP, surely by removing it before it is won, that has some form of impact on the RTP regulation for that slot? Should they not wait until it's won, or alternatively split the remaining jackpot up on a % share basis based on historic stakes by the players?

    Or perhaps nothing at all? Just want to understand, as it was my intention to keep playing this slot indefinitely until the jackpot was won, especially given that I was one of the few players on that particular stake on this site.

    Thanks guys.

    I think when a jackpot slot is retired, the player contributions are usually used to seed another new jackpot, that's been th
    e case in a few I recall, but none of them Playtech. I know for our land-based slots here in Ontario, and in Quebec, it's part of provincial legislation that that is what happens. UKGC has fairly stringent rules, I would be surprised if that scenario is not covered. Perhaps another UK member more familiar might chime in.

    Are you sure this is a local jackpot?
    I always assumed it is a network one.
    Played this slot quite a bit myself in the past... I like it!

    Looks like the game is missing from more sites that just Grovesnor.

    Thanks guys, appreciate your responses. As I said, I have been in regular contact with Grosvenor, but have yet to have any useful response as of yet. Obviously this is a fairly unique situation so wanted to get a feel for any similar previous experiences anyone may have had on here.
