Casino Caution Sept 2007

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Mar 9, 2021

Disappointing downgrade

InfoPowa reluctantly joins several top online gambling portalmasters this week in warning about slow pays and possible business problems at the Australian-owned Hippo Jo Casino (see previous InfoPowa reports)

Only months ago, this new RTG-powered casino debuted to optimistic introductory reports, mainly due to the credentials of some respected and highly experienced Aussie online gambling industry personalities who claimed to be managing the operation. With an undertaking to accept any dispute resolutions through Casinomeister, it appeared to be a safe bet.

Unfortunately, Hippo Jo has not lived up to expectations, with growing numbers of slow pay complaints that are both disappointing and alarming. Exacerbating the situation, the two professionals involved in the management structure appear to be ignoring all attempts to communicate and get to the heart of the problem.

This has led to “rogue” status being applied, and players are urged to exercise caution and diligence before playing.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
