Who gets sms text spam from online casinos here, many of which you never have heard of? I am currently receiving a handful every month, latest this afternoon. Not going to even click on the unsubscribe link of the latest received which I have attached a screenshot of below.

My mobile number has been the same since I moved back to the UK in 2006, so I am guessing my signup details in the past have been sold on, not necessarily from an online casino, but anything I have provided my mobile number to.

It is incredibly annoying.

Several each month. Phone setting is changed and screens them as spam but I still get told they are being sent.

I used to get loads of those, on a daily basis, until I installed an app to vet all text messages.
You just add keywords to the app. Any texts which contain those keywords are blocked.
My keyword include such things as - gamstop, bonus, restrictions, spins, etc.
Any legit casinos tend to email me any special offers. So I doubt I've missed any that I'd want to see. Not that there ay decent offers these days anyway.
The app is Verosms I only have an iPhone. So I don't know if it's available on Android. But it probably is
 
I've seen a marked increase in recent months (and they mostly get marked as spam - the odd one gets through and promptly deleted).

Similarly, email spam has gone through the roof recently - whoever got their hands on the Rizk email list (I flagged it as compromised in December 2020) has been going ham as in the past week I'm seeing 10-20 emails per day promoting a mix of dodgy casinos and other crypto scams.
 
It's not a 'current' thing either.....I've not partaken in any gambling for close to three years now, let alone register at a new casino months before that.

And yet, peppered in among the Russian brides-in-waiting and girth enhancement pro tips I still see the casinos at it, so trustworthy too:

^ Ok 'fairy' 'nuff, that's actually a good deal :p

So with the email chaff, it certainly looks like my details have been bandied around like a lady of easy virtue ever since submitting them, all those years ago. Since not registering at every site like a madman however, and not giving out my mobile number, the SMS casino offers have been fairly infrequent, especially given how the number's changed since then.

It's almost as if handing one's number out to supposedly reputable casinos ultimately ends up in the wrong hands, as if......by magic 🎩 🐇
 
It was a pain to set up unique email aliases for each account (about 10 years ago), but that has paid off over time as it has identified a number of breaches - including some that have never been announced. Thankfully, in most cases it's limited to name and email address (which suggests poorly managed or outsourced marketing campaigns) but the companies should still be disclosing this - and many of them don't, fearing a PR or regulatory (ICO) backlash.

Hmmm, that is interesting as before I signed up with GamStop several years ago now, I used to play at their sister casino Guts.
Funny you should mention them, as the wooden spoon goes to... Guts and Rizk - I flagged up three leaks, Guts in April 2015, Guts again (different alias) in May 2018 and Rizk in December 2020. Naturally they denied it and "I must have used it elsewhere" 🤣, but the evidence speaks for itself...

I can't comment if things have improved under the new ownership as I no longer play at either site (although one left the UK market anyway).

Ok I have downloaded and installed this, be interesting to see how effective it is. Will also enable the ability to block those spam texts including from the govt that don't have a number assigned to them, thus meaning you are unable to block them within iOS. :)
 
I've been having phone spam for around a year since i decided to sign up at one of Progress Play casinos because i had no other place to play, everywhere limits were reached. I block spam, but still, i can see that it comes on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, around 5 o'clock. But this is only a small thing ... In August i found a small charge of £13.51 on my bank statement, labeled as "ProgressPlay LTD." My only ever connection to Progress Play was through one of their casinos more than a year ago, which account is closed.

Another UKGC-licensed venue where little thieves abuse player data is Merkurslots. I once asked my girlfriend to sign up there because again my limits were hit and i wanted to play something. She signed up using a fresh email, and since then that email has been filling up with all sorts of spam.

Edit: Changed from Admiral to Mercurslots.

If i ever registered at a new casino, i would have a separate sim card, like pay as you go, etc. Otherwise that shite fucks the proper phone number forever.

is it ad free?
 
Had nothing for years, until past few weeks, now getting about 6-7 per week, mostly come through Fridays and the weekends.

Strange thing is the only casino (I think) I updated my recent-ish mobile number change to is the casino I only use, IE: VS. all the defunct casinos I stopped using ages and ages back have my old RIP mobile number.

Guessing they get numbers from phone provider rather than other casinos (like they used to do??)

I just delete them and never will even entertain them. Lots are all seemingly experts at offering 400% bonuses and getting round UKGC regs lol.
 
If these are personalized spam messages with your name in there, then they know more than just your phone number.

I get personalized ones and usually laugh on how they craft those messages to get me click on that link....

It usually goes like ... At [a moronic casino name] today we've prepared blah, blah
 
Yep, likely have got my details from a data breach, there have been a few over the years, including LinkedIn, which said details then get sold on. Or like as mentioned further up in the thread, an operator being loose with the details they have.

In terms of passwords and account access etc. I am not too worried, as even I don't know my passwords, including my login to the Casinomeister forum.

It is just a major PITA my phone being infiltrated with this crappy spam.

Email spam, I am used to. But text message spam takes it to another level IMO.
 
There is an age-old service for checking whether your email address have been .. feked.

I don't know any that would check phone number exposes, but for emails it works fine.

Just stick your mail in and it will show you some of the biggest data breaches.

Two of my emails (that i don't use anymore anyway) are getting smashed with spam.

Check yours guys, and change password if you're there, at least :D
