just tried to play a variety of netent games.

Not allowed in my country. tried on laptop, pc and mobile. they do not even show up anymore on the list. wow.

which means no more battle of the slots for us...well at least not with netent games.


there goes that.

No more netent games at videoslots for canadians.

Such bullshit if that is the case. Lose out on rewards, race and cashback.:mad: What else is there to play that you can win something decent on? I still can play some main games of mine but netent was a big chunk.

Feeling the same way. Feeling pretty disgruntled I did not get an email alerting me to the fact, that I logged into free spins I had from a tourney just a few hours earlier to find out this way. Then come to CM to get the lowdown after clearing cache and cookies. To be fair, support did credit me some spins on a Play N Go game to replace them.

But an awful lot of tourneys will no longer be available to play, and there are many games I was well into the achievements, working on 10K winning spins.

You cannot convince me they had only a few hours notice this was coming down the pipe.

Since Jasmine is closest to me I think, I wonder if I can get emotional support (aka hug? :p) as I am going to have the shakes with no more playing my favorite slots. I still offer doing chores for you.:p

I was on there last night. I was just about to deposit but I thought I'd use up the little amount I had on DOA. Could not find it. Could not find Creature or any Netent games. Went to the battles and the list was half as long as normal. Thought I would wait until morning as surely Dan or someone would alert us to this. I assumed there would have been an email this morning but there is nothing.

Oh well. Glad I didn't deposit. All the reasons I have been playing there have just been taken away. Very disappointed in the way this was handled.

There not a bad site as we all know,

But the other day someone pointed out about update in terms, Dan came along and stated it was only to do with affiliate side, But again people started to notice other terms have changed, I cannot vouch for that as terms to me are pointless, Max bet, disallowed games is the only rules I need to no, Unless I click max bet by mistake than even the first rule does not apply to me, oh and no bonus with ewallets is another one I look out for,

If MG or netbent got took of the shelf's for U.K players I think there will be a world war 3 on the horizon,

As if we didn't have enough tin foil hats on than they just ban country's? Not only have they not stated this was going to happen but take all the affiliates, They can bring in big revenue or a casino yet not been informed? I am sure if they was than we would of been told,

Have netent actually banned the games due to not allowed or is it a temporary thing?

They have had several YEARS notice of this. NetEnt banned operators from offering their games to Canadians a couple of years ago, but the problem was that they couldn't enforce it, and most operators were not going to cut their throats by pulling a large chunk of their offerings and see Canadian players jump ship. A few refused because they had contracts with NetEnt that did not permit NetEnt to impose a Canadian ban, and NetEnt would just have to wait until these contracts came up for renewal. This is probably what has happened with Videoslots, and unfortunately those other places that are still serving NetEnt to Canadians will follow suit as their contracts come up for renewal, or when NetEnt finds a way to impose the ban from their servers (as Microgaming does when it bans countries).

Unfortunately, one big problem for NetEnt is the ease with which their games can be pirated, so the total removal of legitimate NetEnt games from the Canadian market opens the door to those operators prepared to run pirate versions to target Canadian players who cannot get NetEnt from any legitimate operator. They will probably use a licence from Curacao, who will turn a blind eye, and market to the ignorance of most players who will feel that the fault lies with the legitimate operators who don't value their Canadian customers sufficiently to treat them like everyone else and let them play NetEnt. As far as these players are concerned, it will be a new and fully licenced online casino offering NetEnt and bonuses to Canadian players, and treating them the same as players from elsewhere. They will have no idea that the games are pirated, and might also be rigged so as to rip them off.

I think Terry is right on when he states that it is the greedy Government trying to clamp down on offshore casinos. They have been slowly screwing us over on withdrawals and deposit methods. I think VS will suffer greatly from this so I am sure this is something they did not want to happen. I am sure this is permanent Terry. And yes, they are a great casino so it probably won't stop me from playing there but the days of trying to meet the WR for the freerolls is definitely over.

When Net Entertainment games stopped working on mobile two weeks ago, I knew the end of access to them was near.

As we all know, Canadians were never allowed to play Net Ent in the first place so any casino that allowed play on them here was in violation.

I'm not upset as DoA was the only game from them I was playing regularly from them. What concerns me is that I could possibly see a scenario where I'll be forced to play at Microgaming casinos or PlayOLG.ca and that's a losing situation for everybody.

After this current VSO deposit, I will take the rest of the year off from online slots and chiefly play roulette/blackjack at Leo Vegas once in a while. Perhaps it's a good thing.

I wish I lived in the U.K. or Australia, where gambling is advertised and is freely accepted. Canadian provinces simply want too much control of everything from lotteries, to sports betting to casinos in order to screw us out of every penny. Ridiculous.

I know many here love Canada. I do, too. It's just a terrible place for gambling.

That's right. Somewhere in one of the VS threads I brought this up that Netent no longer loading on iPad or mobile. and here we are. No Netent games for us.

It would be nice to have received some sort of notice..from VS themselves. Even if it wouldn't make a difference. It makes a difference when you expect your casino whom you've spent money on and who have been nothing but fair and good and excellent in every way possible to have done this one thing for their Canadian customers as small as a contingent as we are.....we are still customers. Loyal ones at that. it would have been nice to have been given a heads up. To make it official. And final, I suppose.

And not one word on this thread either may I add. I for one am sorely disappointed in my 9.8 casinomeister rated casino. And will continue to be a customer.

Not so sure about depositing again Steviedoo. No respect from Videoslots. Should have at least communicated to us how this will affect freerolls, free spins etc etc. Extremely disappointed after having spent so much of my time and dollars here. I got notifications from Trada and Guts but nothing from these guys that I have been extremely loyal to. I have 2 words but I will not say them.

I get it ...I said I was going to be a customer....maybe not so loyal. I spent most of my gambling money at VS. And now I am completely lost as to where I am putting my money today. Maybe a good thing. Who knows.

I wish MG casinos would change their cashout ways. I refuse to play there on wed starting at 6 all the way to Sunday afternoon. Cashouts are on Monday and waiting for a cashout since wed and having it be reversible all thru weekend is a bit much. And only one I play at sometimes is Gowild cuz you can still flush your winnings there.
