    Here's the e-mail:

    Fasten your seatbelts, because starting 1 April 2005 you could win 1 of 250 convertible BMWs with Vegas Partner Lounge Casinos! That's right here's your chance to win your very own BMW Convertible.

    All you need to do is deposit and wager 150 casino credits within 24 hours to qualify for the daily draw! Terms and Conditions apply for more information visit You must register/login in order to see the link..

    ---------

    Man... that's a lot of BMW's, I'm thinking. Is Vegas Partners really big enough to support such a giveaway? So I click the link to view the terms and conditions, all still looks well. Hmmm... some suspicious asterisks though. You have to click yet another further link, and... finally...

    It turns out if you deposit and wager a pile of money, you could be the lucky owner of one of You must register/login in order to see the link.. That'll look sweeeet in your driveway. If you happen to be Ken or Barbie.

    Actually... just kidding, sucker!! The one at that link is an impressive 1:18 (and sells for a whopping $24.95), the ones that Vegas Partners are giving away are only 1:43.

    Can you imagine not reading the fine print, "winning" and then finding out what you received? Especially if you lost a few grand in the process?

    WHY do companies belittle their reputations with cheap stunts like this??

    '05 z4 drop top is worth 42-44 grand depending on the location and season.

    Hard top is worth just over 40.

    I would like to be plugged into whoever they are buying it from. 35 grand is less then wholesale value for that car. If any cmeister forum member wins that car, I will give you $37,900 cash sight unseen, for a clean title.

    Then I will sell it for $39,950........50 bucks under the luxury tax cutoff... :D

    This group is not recommended any more! Seems to be going a similar way to Integrity regarding 'promotional abuse'. I can't really say much more at the moment.

    Sorry, it's nothing to do with this promo! I am asking the VPL guy at the mo if they've ever removed the bonuses from any players after they met the terms. They have at least threatened to do that.

    I have verified with the casino representative that they do have this policy of 'warning' players who they 'feel' are abusing an offer and threaten to remove the bonuses if they don't change their style of play.

    In part of the commmunication, the representitive stated that:
    The email players receive 'warning' them about their style of play contains terms such as 'promotion abuse' and 'minimal risks'. I think it's mainly about betting levels but some casinos state minimum bets in the terms and conditions (32red is one).

    It is open for abuse if you allow the casino to use their 'discretion' in removing the bonuses for unverifiable reasons (the terms should be clear to the player).

    I agree it IS funny... but in a pathetic unintentional sort of way. :)

    I think you're wrong about their intentions... if you read the e-mail(s) and the web page that they refer you to is not presented tongue-in-cheek at all.

    Depositing money in an offshore casino requires a great deal of trust, and lying* in an e-mail makes one wonder what else they might be deceptive about.

    Certainly not the worst thing a casino has ever done, but I still award them the prestigious Screeching Weasel keychain:

    (By the way, if you're too weasely to earn one fair-and-square, you can apparently purchase it You must register/login in order to see the link. along with similarly obtuse items. People buy this stuff???)





    * Yes -- lying -- you think you wouldn't get perjured in court for similar prevarication?

    "Mr. Jones! Earlier you claimed you DIDN'T stab your wife!"
    "I didn't stab her your honor, I sliced her."
    "Oh, ok. No problem. Proceed".
