    Just saw this on news feed from the sun, but really just looks like a blatant advert..

    Someone wins 6.3 million from £4 bet just an hour after making first deposit at Casumo

    I love a feel-good story, especially those rags-to-riches ones, they warm the cockles of my heart.

    So what if it's made-up lies and blatant clickbait advertising for a failing news outlet in desperate need of readership and credibility. I 100% believe every word of it!*

    It is a genuine story, new player from Aberdeen IIRC and he signed up and collected the FDB at Casumo and hit the jackpot. I You must register/login in order to see the link. about it a couple of weeks ago as it was rare for a UK player to win and not a Norwegian :D

    I know the Daily Mail allow brands to pay for editorial these days but not sure if the Sun do. I think in this case they have ripped the story and images from a local rag.

    Admitaddly I didn't have a thorough look, but it looks to be legitimate to me. If it's an affiliate advert (or an advertorial as they're known as), somewhere on the page, it MUST state "this is a paid advertorial/this is a paid sponsered listing", or something along those lines.

    Obvioulsy for some less-then-trustworthy brands/regulators this isn't always enforced - but with a UK site, overseen by both the UKGC and the ASA, it would be pretty suicidal for a paper to emit that.

    (Although as I said, I only had a brief skim, didn't look too deeply)

    Here's an example, if you're interested, for the Mirror:

    Have a flick through, and you'll come across some casino/lottery/gambling promotions in there :)

    Why is it always someone who "just signed up" and why do they NEVER realise what they've won, straight away?

    Are they all visually/mentally impaired, too?

    The story is obviously told in a way that is not 100% accurate. They often exaggerate and make up some aspects of it to make it more of a story.

    But believe me Jackpots can be won. Don't forget I did hit that max progressive on that yggdrasil slot holmes secret of the stones in jan 2017. And I to always thought these progressives would not be winnable until I hit it. But mine was obviously not that much. Wish it was lmao Mine was only €12.2k euros which worked out at around £9,400 exchange rate at the time. And it was from a 0.40pence spin at leovegas.

    You should always remember that famous line never fully believe what is written in newspapers and on the news. The wording and the way they are reported are not to be believed to the same extent. it is better to just read the headline and then make your own judgement based on that and read and look for the facts only and then if you want to know the real facts of a story. Try googling it to see if other media outlets have repeated the same or written it differently.

    Wouldn't trust that guy. Convinced a fair few of us war was imminent between the US and Russia, quite a coincidence he was also doing thyrosafe @ 50% off regular price for the weekend . Prolonged the story for ages while never once saying you can become dependant on them.

    As a general note, if The Sun are going to run this paid for PR, then the winner has to tick some of the following boxes

    Needs to be someone who just 'fancied a punt'
    Preferably from the armed forces, maybe carrying an injury
    Cannot be of any faith other than White Christian
    Must be poor, but not claiming any benefits - ideally just getting by on 2 jobs
    Must love football
    Must hate immigration

    Then you've got a story!

    I agree, he was a good teacher in the basics to a newbie, whether he still is, I don't know, but once you got the basics it's time to go elsewhere.

    He is most definitely cointelpro, and also being steered by his advertisers, and he seems to have aligned himself with alt-right, who are a bit scary.
