@Casinomeister could maybe have a think about that one.
The reason the rule for accreditation is there, is to prevent unscrupulous casinos holding onto a network progressive after they've received it from the provider.
But in the case of a local progressive, the jackpot has already been 'received' by the casino from their customers playing the game. It's the contribution from their stakes, which builds the jackpot, and is already included in the TRTP.
Or specify 'network progressive' in the rules, to save any future confusion
Exactly, this shouldn't be part of the cashflow, it should be ringfenced so when it's won, it can be paid in full by the casino. They have had the money, theres no excuse for it not to be paid, in fact it should be paid faster than a network progressive as they don't have to wait for the funds to be transferred by the provider.
