Is this action or just more saber rattling and posturing? Would be nice to see the named and shamed list of companies being investigated but I bet we can guess most of them!

I think the only real outcome from these investigations will be that the Casino's will stop offering bonuses at all. They will still make plenty of money and I am sure they will find some other way of incentivising the casual punter. Little to no regulatory change will probably come of it.

The online companies will just stop offering bonuses or limit winnings, they won't cut the wagering requirements down, i hope the reverse withdraw gets a mention.

I'd love to see the option of removing the reverse withdraw. That I think would be a massive blow for the casino's.
And also think bonus's will not be as regular anymore, understand a casino needs to protect itself by all means, but for a lot of players who don't play often or perhaps only have a small budget a bonus is a great way to extend play time and it'd be unfair to those players.

I think they might put a withdraw limit on instead of wagering ie minimum £500 if you take a bonus maybe

Maria Casino told Chris he had an account with its sister company Unibet, and he had used a self-exclusion feature on the site - something introduced by the Gambling Commission to help problem gamblers...
This is why you don't self exclude unless you want to quit gambling.

Another thing - bonuses are not compulsory - they are not required. Play without them and you will find yourself having a stress-free playing experience. A lot of these articles come across as if you are only allowed to play with bonuses - and that is BS.

Sure there will be some regulation but that does not mean that promotions will become worthless.
I don't see any real connection between regulation and less valuable promotions.

Not 100% but pretty darn close, here is a quick formula..

Reverse Withdrawal = Will Power + Patience = Cash in your pocket :thumbsup: :p

More of a personal perspective before anyone tries to chop my head off :)
