    Turn right, then right. then right again
    I made the mistake of putting $25 in as the games were new and the rep was here posting.

    When I registered, it took me to another page with two buttons saying "choose your signup bonus". One button said "300% deposit bonus" and the other said "70 free spins".

    OK, so I choose the 300% bonus option. Deposit $25. Get a $25 bonus. WTH?

    So, I contact support, and am told in broken English (always a red flag) that the offer is actually a 100% bonus on your first THREE deposits. I tell her it is misleading, and she says "No, it is correct. 100% + 100% + 100% = 300%." Ummm....yeah....not misleading at all!

    I realize I'm.wasting my time as you can't have a logical discussion with someone not fluent in your language, so I go to the webpage and it says "300% deposit bonus" AND "$7 free". I went to the promotions page and yep, it says 100% x3 on that page. Well its the first time it was mentioned. I didn't read that page first, as 99.9% of the time when I see "300% signup bonus" it means I'm getting 300% on my first deposit.

    As for the free $7.....nowhere to be seen, and nowhere to claim it. I did think back to the 70 free spins offer and maybe that was it....I don't know. If it was, its yet again deceptive advertising as nothing was mentioned about free spins on the website, and nothing was said about the offer being the deposit bonus OR the $7 free anyway.

    I then logged in to play hoping the games were worth the crappy customer service and deceptive marketing. Boy was I wrong.

    The slots are TERRIBLE. I can't honestly remember a lot of times I've said that about slots, as they all have their quirks, but this pathetic collection is just outright crap. Only some of them are actually "line" slots....many are just five scratch cards in a row that don't interconnect. The bonus games I hit several times, and when the first one hit I got something like 12x for the win, which isn't awful I thought, until I realized it was TIMES LINE BET not total bet I.e. $1.20. I did not get higher than my bet from any bonus...AND some are just clones of the others.

    My recommendation is to AVOID this place. I would say this purely based on the games. The other rubbish is just a bonus reason.

    Hmm. Maybe you should ask Chris Sutter, he works at Affglobe.com, the affiliate program of WinnersIsland. Or perhaps you can PM the casino rep here: http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/member.php?u=26985 He might be able to help too. :p

    Oh wait!! You're all on the same computer - so why don't you go ask yourself :thumbsup:

    And you can go tell your boss you just got WinnersIsland fast tracked to the rogue pit :p

    Lesson learned - you don't f*** around at Casinomeister. We be watching you. :eek2:

    So my assessment was spot on. Nice to know I haven't lost my rogue radar.

    It's a shame it cost me $25, but I'm happy to lose it if it saves some other poor sods from being ripped off. Any operator that resorts to blatant shilling like this will have no scruples about anything else.

    I really enjoy it when these pathetic spammers and shills are caught red-handed - not even enough smarts to properly cover their tracks (thank goodness!).

    Well caught Bryan!

    omg.. this is the same guys who kept sending me messages through the contact form to sign up with their brand.
    till I sent an email back telling him if he had taken just 30 seconds of his precious time to actually browse the site he would have seen I already had his brand on there, and to immediately stop spamming my email box.
    never got a response back after that.
    think I'm gonna send an email to a boss of his now, asking him/her if they are aware an employee of theirs is putting them on a path to failure. yes I'm a bastard. need to get my kicks out of something :D

    ...and Nifty for wasting his whole month's spouse allowance on exposing their crap CS, games, and deceptive promotions :(



    *Spouse Allowance = the amount my wife gives me to enjoy myself.

    haha Nifty. what the hell were you thinking anyways depositing at a scratch brand? :D you are now part of an elite club ;)
    on a serious note. I didn't mail them yet. This morning I woke up, and to my surprise I received an email telling me my new affiliate manager to be was ... drums please ... Chris! :what:
    So I told them no thanks, keep mr.shill out of my life. Explained situation.
    Apologies followed. Then I told em this:
    I can forgive Chris for sending me messages through the contact form even when I already was a partner.
    But the casinomeister incident is a severe problem, and it shows players (and affiliates alike) have to proceed with caution.
    I'm a webmeister at casinomeister, which means I look after my players, and do not promote rogue brands.
    So this error in judgment leaves me no other choice but to add a warning to your brand's articles on my site.
    -----
    but anywho.. it's just a scratch brand.. nothing casino about it.. scratch brands are all alike.
    oh and Nifty. they all have that same strategy of giving new players the choice between a deposit bonus and a free bonus. but thing is, if you claim the free one you get the same deposit bonus afterwards.. most scratch players know this. except all the pariplay brands have this strange idea 300% is the same as 3 x 100%.. I had this misinformation listed on my site till I gave the terms a proper read :cool:
