Online Casino Red Flags- 5 Signs it’s a Scam

After spending your day at the office, listening to your boss, and dealing with the stress of work, driving to a casino is not worth it. Playing colorful slot machines and having a few drinks with your friends at a local casino seems like fun, but now you can do it all at your home. Did you notice the recent transition of conventional businesses to online and digital platforms? What about casinos? Have you tried online casinos?

Fortunately, the online casino industry has become one of the most promising ones in the entertainment realm. Gamblers are now looking forward to online casinos instead of land-based casinos. The rise of online gambling is supported by many factors like convenience, ease, and affordability of entertainment opportunities. In this guide, we will talk about online casino red flags. If you see any of these signs, you need to steer clear of such casinos.

Are Online Casinos Safe?

Yes, online gambling is a well-structured entertainment industry, and different legit authorities oversee the performance and services of online casinos. Before operating in any region, online casino companies have to get valid licenses from prestigious regulatory and licensing authorities. Here are some international gambling licensing authorities:

  • UK Gambling Commission (UKGC)
  • Malta Gaming Authority (MGA)
  • Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC)
  • Gibraltar Regulatory Authority (GRA)
  • Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission
  • Curacao eGaming
  • Kahnawake Gaming Commission
  • New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement

An online casino is safe and secure for all types of financial transactions if it has a valid license from any of these licensing authorities. There are many other popular international and local licensing authorities that can issue licenses to online casinos. Software providers are also verified to supply games and software for online casinos. If an online casino is offering bonus bez depozytu (no-deposit bonus),  licensing authorities will ensure that users are delivered what they are promised by the casino company. Here are some signs that might indicate that online casinos are not safe and are probably being operated by a rogue company.

No License

The very first and most important red flag is the display of licensing information on the home page. All licensed casinos are required to display their registration details at the bottom of the home page. This section will include some basic details about the casino and the operating company. Here are some important details that you need to check before making any deposit:

  • Name of the owner
  • Company registration number
  • Company’s physical address
  • Casino licensing authority
  • License number
  • Registration number
  • Year of registration

A licensed casino is legally bound to obey the laws and regulations to entertain its customers. If anything goes wrong, consumer protection laws will entertain the customers. When these details are not available, you are not sure if the casino is transparent or not. Instead of risking your data and bank details, you should choose licensed casinos only.

All Games are new and from unknown Developers

Having new and fresh games is a good thing for an online casino. All popular casinos try to update their game libraries regularly. New games can help them to attract more players who like the variety of games. But if all games are from unknown and shady developers, you need to hold your horses. It is possible that you may not be aware of a couple of games, but if you don’t see even a few popular games from known developers, there is something wrong.

A lobby of fully new and unknown games is not going to be fun. Either they have no known software providers onboard or top web development companies for casinos are not selling them their products. In both cases, such a platform is not the best option for online gambling.

Bonuses and Offers are too generous

All online casinos have a bonus section to attract new players. Every business tries to lure new customers by offering them additional perks and rewards. The same goes for online casinos, as players need to minimize risk levels to enjoy prolonged gameplay. Welcome bonuses, no deposit bonuses, free spins, and many other similar bonuses are available at online casinos.

All bonuses come with certain terms and conditions. If there is no condition to claim a bonus and everything seems to be unrealistically good, you are probably making the wrong choice. An online casino bonus is a marketing technique where the company also benefits from the bonus. If you think that bonuses are too generous without any catch, that’s fishy.

Money Withdrawal is not smooth

Rogue casinos will try to offer a wide range of options for deposits. It will take you just a moment to make the deposit. Once you have deposited the money, they will not approve your withdrawal request. Usually, they will make different objections to reject your request or will try to charge ridiculously higher withdrawal fees.

It is possible that a rogue casino may not pay you anything at all, even after winning the games. As this casino is not registered or licensed, you can do nothing and cannot get any legal assistance.

The majority of Reviews are bad

There are casino experts like Emiliana Rostowicz who like to share their expert opinions and insights about online casinos. It is highly recommended that you go through some reviews by experts to understand the pros and cons of the casino.

There are different online customer review sites where you can search the reputation of the online casino. If most reviews are bad and negative, you have no reason to choose such a platform over hundreds of other popular sites with good reputations.

Conclusion

The popularity of online casinos has attracted many rogue casino companies and fraudulent platforms, too. New users need to beware of these scam casinos because a little mistake can land you an unregistered platform that might pay you nothing. A valid license means that all types of games are fair without any manual manipulation of the outcomes.

Esports World Cup Reveals First Five Game Titles for Summer 2024

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Esports World Cup (EWC) Foundation this week revealed the first five games that will be part of the inaugural Esports World Cup this summer in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The addition of Honor of Kings, Counter-Strike 2, Dota 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, StarCraft II to the Summer 2024 program underscores the EWC’s mission of bringing together diverse game communities for a truly global event.

“With a mix of storied PC games and some of the biggest mobile esports titles in the world, Esports World Cup captures the past, present, and future of esports,” said Ralf Reichert, CEO, Esports World Cup Foundation. “StarCraft II, Dota 2, Counter-Strike 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and Honor of Kings are all outstanding titles for the Esports World Cup. From the games that foundationally defined this industry, to the premier mobile titles beloved by a new wave of gamers, we are building the World Cup to connect with and elevate clubs, players, fans, and the entire esports community.”

The first set of titles features three games with rich histories central to the global popularization of esports. Franchises like StarCraft built standout esports ecosystems during the early days of the industry, and titles such as Dota have consistently shattered viewership and prize pool records throughout decades of competitive play. Counter-Strike 2 represents a new era for a storied esports title, which remains one of the most popular esports in the world 25 years later.

Mobile games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang lay the foundation for a new frontier of esports – one that leans on the accessibility of the platform and opportunities to host top-tier competition anywhere a 5G signal is available. Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is among the most-watched esports in the world by peak viewership, and presents an opportunity to engage an underserved, yet large and diverse, segment of esports fans.

Honor of Kings, the most-played mobile MOBA, is the latest title confirmed for inclusion in the Esports World Cup. Honor of Kings has announced a $15 million commitment to build the game’s international esports ecosystem. In 2024, its esports circuit will feature more tournaments than ever, with over 1000 events across global markets to support the game’s full international launch later this year.

Esports World Cup aims to bring this mix of platforms, genres, and fans together for the largest-ever celebration of gaming as a global sport. Alongside initiatives such as EWC Foundation’s Club Program, announced earlier this month, the tournament will help foster cross-game competition, connecting the audience to their favorite titles and new opportunities for fandom, and facilitating world-class tournaments in dozens of titles.

Participating publishers and games were introduced on social media through related videos that captured not only their unique IP, but the regions that have been integral to their esports history. The campaign highlights the rise of esports as a global sport and the convergence of these regions and their favorite games at the Esports World Cup in summer 2024. The full list of reveals and the cities featured in their CGI reveals to date includes:

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (Shanghai, China)
Dota 2 (Seattle, Washington, USA)
StarCraft II (Seoul, South Korea)
Counter-Strike 2 (Cologne, Germany)
Honor of Kings (Shenzhen, China)
Additional titles will be announced soon.
