    Just wondering if the money goes to someone's bank account in the casino? or is returned to the game as per some regulation?
    (I had the pleasure of losing a nice winning due to bonus terms - max bet rule breach :D - lesson learnt!!)

    Nothing. Such money go nowhere and stay in casino.

    But i believe someone good start awesome practive to donate this money somewhere. Like ill kids. I'll be happy to see this. And there will be much less complaints i believe. Broke rules did not get paid - helped someone.

    What i think is basicly that money you generated with bonus money has never existed in case of confiscation.
    So its not + or - to casino, they just remove that money and thats it :D

    Bonus money is never real money until converted via WR, or in some cases is non-cashable anyway. Any decent casino would not gain from WR breaches anyway, as they'd void the bonus and its winnings and just make you play cash with your deposit or refund the deposit. So in real money they would or should not gain anything.

    Not quite. Suppose you win a jackpot on a game and then the money gets confiscated. Now the game will no longer have the jackpot.
    Or if you did not hit the jackpot and the game payed big. This game now will suck money out of anyone who play it until RTR is balanced. Sounds unfair right?

    I believe the credits/jackpot must be returned back to the game.

    Is such a scenario unless some rules are in place - as to what must be done with confiscated money - there is no stopping the casino doing what is best for them. (ie. pocket it even maybe!)

    Again incorrect - the casino would void the jackpot so it would go back to the jackpot pool and be reseeded with the funds replaced.

    Secondly the casino doesn't have the jackpot, it is in the account of the software provider who pay the winner direct in most cases, with the exception of Playtech who are happy to pay it to bent casinos who may then go on to blackmail the winner with it due to their rogue instalment terms.

    Jackpot thingy was incorrect. Agreed! Still that does not answer the scenario below

    Suppose the game payed big(happens in most cases) and this money was confiscated.
    This game now will suck money out of anyone who play it until RTR is balanced. Sounds unfair right?

    I believe the credits must be returned back to the game.

    Network progressive jackpots are returned to the pool. It's not like software providers give the operators x dollars in return for x bet.

    It's not money until WR is met according to terms.

    It's been said before in this thread, but sometimes you need to hear things more than once for them to sink it.

    The casino made their money on your deposit, and you broke terms. Even players that follow the rules lose their deposits at times

    They theoretically make 5% of a player's deposit on 95% slots. Your rule breaking does not change this. Whether it's 92 o4 97%.

    Games do not suck money based on past payouts. They suck money because they pay back less then then take in.

    Your play does not influence mine.

    No operator is going to chime in here, but players that do not read the rules are overall profitable.

    Read the rules, otherwise you have no chance of cashing out.

    No, listen. The jackpot must be VERIFIED by the casino in liaison with the software provider. The jackpot would not be released by the software provider to the casino unless the player checked out correct, i.e. he/she won legitimately and was not a fraudulent player or under bonus (if applicable) etc.

    If the casino misrepresented a player and claimed the jackpot was legitimate and then received it and subsequently told the player they had broken a term and kept it, it would be a major embezzlement crime. Like Joyland was.

    The game plays the same whether the jackpot has been won 5 minutes ago, or not for 2 years. The proportion of the game's TRTP that contributes to the jackpot is fixed.

    Not sure how it works when money is confiscated.

    Think the OP is getting at say a player played max bet on a slot like IR and hit 5 reel WD which paid a fortune, But all the winnings were void as bonus terms had been broke.

    Think hes getting at since that slot paid so much would other players then lose so much to make up for the win that it had paid out even tho the player would not have received winnings.

    Thanks for the reply guys. I understand now that it is unlikely the casino will profit from this.

    The above reply from Paul - sums up my last remaining query. I would like this money returned to the IR game in this instance. Because I believe - there must be better odds to play a game before it paid out big right? Your replies suggest this is not the case. Confusing!

    It is not money until its cashable. Any one spin is as likely as the next one to produce a big hit. Of course, it is even more likely to produce no hit.

    The reels are random, over millions of spins. The casino did not pocket your big win, they may have only pocketed your deposit. Many casinos will either return your original deposit, or give you a do over if you breached a max bet rule. If you have not asked about that, you should.

    If the casino has a rep here on CM, pm them about your issue.

    The casino can only make the amount you deposit, if you deposit 50 and win 1,000 then they lose 950. If you deposit 50, win 1,000 and they confiscate it they only make 50, if they return your deposit they haven't made a penny.

    Any Jackpot win should be returned to the jackpot. In fact the Casino would lose a small amount for any jackpot play as they would still be liable to pay the jackpot contributions. For this reason they should not allow jackpot play with bonus funds if they are not willing to pay it out.
    They would also not be able to make any publicity out of paying it so it really would be a stupid move to block a jackpot win, a player winning a large jackpot could be almost guaranteed to put a big chunk back in the casino that he won it from and it doesn't cost the casino anything as it is the supplier that is paying. This doesn't apply to most Playtech Casinos who would still advertise it but keep the money.

    If a player played max bet on a slot like IR and hit 5 reel WD it does not change the odds of any other player getting the same result. Every spin is totally independent of any previous spin regardless of bet size or result. If a 5 reel WD is a million to one shot then it is a million to one shot for every spin.
