New MG - or new Scam? Vegas International

    In a moment of madness I clicked on a link in an obvious spam mail - and got taken to the 'home page' of "Vegas International Casino" (See below).

    It looks just like any number of MG home pages - including the MG & other usual logo's along the bottom - but everything on the page, including all the tabs at the top (you can see which ones I clicked) bring up a download window with a URL which looks like an affy link...

    This casino is not listed on Microgaming's site.

    Typing in the home URL gives a private page - no access...

    VERY LOUD ALARM BELLS RING! :eek:

    Anyone know anything about this place?

    I can't read the URL well enough.

    What's it say in "about us"?

    I'm surprised that people aren't catching what this truly is. It's the spammers that's been hitting many many affiliate programs lately.

    If it's a landing page with some bogus casino name & the only link the page gives is for a casino setup program, it's fake....

    It's only a fake casino name, but the casinos they are spamming are very real.

    I've been getting these spam emails for these casinos for a couple of weeks now and try to block them but they change their email address each time and I get it again.

    The domain is vegasinternationalcasino.com, not vegasinternational.com .

    It's a proxy for Ruby Fortune.

    So do I and I can't escape it. The casinos change too. Why doesn't ecorga do something about this. It's very irritating and there is no way to unsubscribe from it.

    You're probably right. They just started with MG casinos. Before, they were only targeting Playtech and RTG affiliate programs....mainly RTG, go figure.

    If this is a part of the "999" thing it's been going on for a while. I started getting hit with the MG casinos around Christmas.

    This ties into the other thread about Phoenician (999). I went back to them days after I posted in that thread. I was told they cannot control emails being sent and that I was in the wrong place. It gave me a laugh. :)

    You must register/login in order to see the link. is on an email I got a few minutes ago. It's "Happy Vegas Casino" which when you attempt to download goes to "Jupiter Club Casino"

    I suspect this is just a rogue affiliate. If you email the affiliate tag to the associated affiliate programs, they'll probably ban the guy and take care of this problem.

    I used to get several copies of this spam every day. It was a Ruby Fortune affiliate, every link on the page would download Ruby Fortune. Eventually I complained and the spam stopped, but I cannot tell whether I was simply taken off the mailing list or the affiliate was terminated. Maybe the Palace Group rep would like to comment on why they let a spammer to become and to stay an affiliate for such a long time.

    I'll chat to them this morning and see what they know about it or what action can be taken.

    Top man! :thumbsup:

    I'm shocked it has anything to do with such a reputable group (Ruby Palace :p ) - I hope they find out who it is & drop a 16-ton weight on them!

    That's exactly right. Looks like the same old spammer with a new ambition. Exactly the same modus operandi.

    From the affiliate program's perspective they just see stats for clickthroughs, downloads, sign-ups, earnings... They were likely not aware of this guy's spamming, and will likely ban him, if they are made aware. It should be easy to identify which affiliate it is, so long as they have the affiliate tag.

    They have been reported numerous times, so the affiliate program in question is definitely aware of the situation. Let's hope they're not like CPays and totally ignore the situation.


    Remember, this is not a single spammer. This is a network of spammers all around the world working together.
