You should ask the jackpot question in another thread since I will be closing this one soon. Thank you.Happy ending after all. And kudos to iNetBet for making the more popular decision (from players perspective).
Now about this jackpot mfrasher won, I don't want to put blame on anyone or be rude, or try to put iNetBet or Bryan in bad light, but i'v been speculating this inside my head since last night and this forum is for discussion and sharing toughts so...
RTG casinos have two kind of jackpots. RTG network wide pooled progressive jackpot slots (see the image attached) that usually are unplayable and restricted with bonus money, jackpot amounts are hundreds of thousands dollars. And these jackpots of course come from RTG. There are not many, maybe 6 slots that are listed as progressive jackpot slots.
And then there is cavalcade of normal slots, which each one of them have in-built casino spesific jackpot. And those jackpots are almost like in Wolf Gold except that the amount is varying depending how often it is won on that slot. Because those jackpots are casino specific and each slot has it's own "jackpot", does RTG really pay these? Or the casino? They are not RTG-network wide or even casino group wide jackpots, but casino spesific, so in my head it would not make much sense if the jackpot money would come from RTG instead of the casino.
I have no fact and this is just speculation of mine. I tried to Google, but could not find any info.
I think I’ve just fallen in love with you BryanAfter a long detailed talk with the owners of the casino, we have decided on the following to resolve this issue once and for all:
The player's initial withdrawal was $5854.08 - Minus sticky bonus $300 = $5554
and the win from the non-allowed game was $14 = 9.33% boost on deposit of $150
9.33% of win = 518.37
Remainder = $5035.62 which iNetBet has agreed to pay.
Now I want everyone to be 100% clear on this: iNetBet is giving the benefit of doubt to the player, that a mistake was made, and that the casino is willing to remove that "win" the player made from that illegal bet - and that the casino is now willing to pay out of pocket. It's not RTG's money now since that jackpot money has already been returned - it's coming from iNetBet. This should underscore the fact the Max and I have harped on - that the operators of iNetBet are not the monsters or rogues that a load of people are trying to make them out to be.
I think that this resolution is more than fair. Again, this was an unauthorized game, the player should have known, and the casino had no obligation to hand over RTG's jackpot funds to a player who violated the rules - no matter how minor a number many of you made it out to be - paying him would not have been the right call. But in all fairness - the owners have decided to look beyond this.
A final note: for those of you criticizing my judgement, Max's, or making demeaning comments towards my standards or the motto "Advocate of fair play" need to be honest about your motives. Advocate of fair play is to be advocating fair play to all - which includes not only the player in question, but to the operators, to the software provider - and to other players who may be affected by a jackpot that was unfairly won.
This thread will remain locked because I have no more to say about this matter in the public fora. This issue has gone around in circles in public mainly from a load of misinformation, assumptions, untrue statements, and some downright bullshit. If anyone has anything to say to me in private about this, by all means feel free to PM me. For those of you making public false statements about me or my brand Casinomeister based on some of the BS that was being regurgitated in this thread, I would recommend retracting those statements or correcting them. That would be the right thing to do.
The player must be so happy. Its like he won twice. The initial win. Then confiscation. Then being told he will be paid afterall. I would be super pumped.
Really glad to see the outcome of this!
The player is happy. Of course!
The money is nice, sure. Won't deny that. But I'm most pleased, or should actually say surprised, with iNetBet and this community. I had written this off and didn't think they would come around. I also never expected this level of support from total strangers...
Kudos again to iNetBet, they've already begun processing the payout....
