Popular Casino Group
is popular with me in this regard. They really tried to be good, but I'm afraid they are proving to be bad.
From their website: "'Popular Casino Group' (Gibraltar) Ltd. operates under the Laws of Gibraltar, and works under the provisions of the Gambling Ordinance for the purposes of operating Internet Casinos (online casinos)." Is it me that is reading too much into things, or does this imply that they are licensed in Gibraltar? Well whatever the case, anyone with a few functioning brain cells can click this link here
and see for themselves which casinos are licensed on the "Big Rock". Popular Casino Group is not listed there.
And it's a shame too, since they had so much promise. Lest we forget, they were the recipient of 2003's
Biggest Casino Scam
which I thought would motivate the operators to try and do some good, like clean up their act. And in May of 2003, I met the operator who explained away the scam. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and removed his casinos from the
...and our pleasant lives went on.
Until early November when one of their "affiliates" began an spam campaign using the reputable King Neptune's Casino as the senders email. And then it happened again in December, and again in January. Was this the work of a renegade affiliate, or the work of misguided casino operators? I have no idea, but it was the same affiliate link being used for each mailing even though the operator confirmed that the affiliate's account was shut down.
Is the Worst Casino Group too great an award for such a small infraction? I don't believe so. There is definitely something wrong here. And like I have mentioned before, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck - it is a duck.
