Surprised it's taken so long, but there are now sites on the 'dark web' selling counterfeit versions of popular Play'n Go slots including Book of Dead and Pimped. Two of these sites, alongside with Greentube and NetEnt fakes, offer packages starting at $800 which include 'installation on your server' and anonymous banking facilities.

All of the screenshots I've seen are Russian but wouldn't be surprised if English versions exist. They include the recognisable brand logo, but the coin value interface looks noticeably different and appears to be a flash version as they are missing the fast-play and additional play setting options. Premium symbols don't look as sharp either.

Unlike my last find back in 2016 (NetEnt fakes) which in the end led to the Affpower exposure (because they were actively linking to them from the dark web) I'm yet to find any working examples of them. If there are any unlicensed casinos using them now or in the near future, it shouldn't be long before they are found.

Sticking with accredited casinos at Casinomeister and other reputable gaming operators you'll never encounter these fakes, but at this stage, apart from the minor cosmetic issues, I don't think there is anyway a player can tell if a Play'n Go game is genuine or not from the help file?

The dark web scares me. Enough to never go on it.
