umm im just wondering would it be possible that a wireless user logged on from his unlocked modem signal ?? just brain storming thats all ??
ps of course thats if he is wireless and the idea has merit
If this was the ONLY linking evidence Lock had, then they should NOT have considered this good enough to cry "fraud".
Referring the cases to CDS will only work if CDS pulls it's finger out and shows it gives a damn about PLAYERS. Many get the impression that they don't even bother to investigate complaints unless they are constantly harrassed, and even when they do, they simply "rubber stamp" the casino's decision. CDS also seem to lack any real power to MAKE an operator abide by any of it's decisions.
The two players with issues at Lock have STILL heard nothing back from CDS, and this only serves to make other players wary about playing at the casino, or indeed ANY RTG casino.
Before claiming fraud, they should be sure it really IS the same player using more than one account, and NOT merely a coincidence of circumstances creating spurious "links" between DIFFERENT players.
The same betting patterns may be down to the players being referred by the SAME FORUM, usually a "bonus beating" one. Whilst this is not the kind of customer the casino prefers, the CASINO is quite happy to pay the AFFILIATE for referring the "bonus whores" from their site. Casinos are SUPPOSED to be vetting the sites that are allowed to be used for affiliate referral (it's in the affiliate terms), and surely they could lessen the problems by not allowing "bonus beating" forums to post methods that are against the casino's terms (such as a guide on running multiple accounts, and getting away with it). Offending affiliates would have THEIR balances confiscated, and contract terminated.
