  1. I’ve been signed up to Gamstop for ages and it works really well but I’ve always been able to access one major site since I did and it suited me as their responsible gaming tools are excellent so I set them to suit me and happily had access to that site as an avenue for a bit of online gambling. However, tried to log in today and got the message I knew would eventually come... “Account frozen, contact support”...... Im not bothering to contact them as I know why they will have frozen it... I’m not that fussed either to be honest just means that hats the game up for me online altogether now.... Unless I want to play at a site not registered with the UKGC and I honestly couldn’t think of a worse way to basically donate your money to some unscrupulous chancer.... There’s a reason they’re not registered with the UKGC after all..., The site was Stars btw.
  2. I’ve said for a long time that this was coming and that it wouldn’t be long before the government went after online casinos in a big way. Especially as they base themselves off shore the tax revenue to HMRC is low anyway. Thats the like if the Bandit et al well f***ed if that comes in.... Shame....
  3. Hate the Hills/Betfred platform, never play there now.
  4. Let us know how you get on please.
  5. I have never heard of this? Even last week Ladbrokes we’re happily refunding to my card. Id be furious if they wanted to do it by BACS rather than card refund after they have been quick enough to take a deposit from your card. My advice if your going to play using a DC is don’t go to Corbet! I think you’ll get your money btw, but, there is a small risk they’ll see your exclusion and stop it but this would open up u claiming back the deposit you won from so I doubt it would be worth the hassle to them.
  6. Put the £1000 in, if you want to be £2000 behind. Accept your loss
  7. This slot on ultra play has been getting right on my Bristol Cities as I just couldn’t seem to get any sort of result on it never mind a feature! Anyway finally got the bonus yesterday and the mystery retrigger for 10 extra spins for the below result but it’s an awful slot imo and I won’t be rushing to play it again!
  8. Nope, I did however consider betting a GE in December early last week when the price drifted out to around 2/1 but I didn’t 😡
  9. My latest effort below, have a look to see how I got on!
  10. Quite obviously I needed a follow up yesterday 🙈... Anyway, I ended up in for £540 😨 but as Hope seemed to be dwindling I hit the below and end up around £500 in front 😃😃 🎰, I mean even Mighty Black Knight chucked the jackpot!!! naturally I’ll most likely end up doing my brains at some point in the very near future......
  11. 8 hours!!!!!! Did you give the bloke a Gamcare leaflet?
  12. Sounds about right to be fair🤣🤣🤣... i’ll wager though that at some point in your life you’ve put the wrong number down on a bet and it’s won! I know I have and an occurrence back in 1998 springs to mind. I wanted to bet the Runner who had number 12 but as the stalls were loading I just wrote down the number and got confused and wrote “No. 13” in error.... £5 on and the stalls open and I realise to my horror that I’ve backed a 25/1 outsider in error, this of course soon turned to glee as said 25/1 shot duly bolted up 🤣🤣🤣🤣
  13. It’ll pay for my weekends racing this weekend on my first visit of the season to Cheltenham 👍
  14. Oh and of course I gambled DofG to 30 free spins and only needed 6 🤣🙈🙈
  15. Been off it a few weeks now but fancied a go today. Off to Ladbrokes with £150?in hand. Played In order Burn em up 7s, RR DoG, Super Star Turns, Prism Eye and then finally back to RR DofG. The only game that played poor was the initial shot of DofG... results and couple of stills below😃
  16. And here’s the reality of the situation! This why watching streams and uploads can be dangerous. You get sucked into thinking that it looks great and the reality is that very seldom to people get monster wins. Online casinos aren’t charitable, they have one aim, to turn a profit and that means parting people’s from their monies by and large.
  17. Where you standing next to me 🤣🤣🤣🤣. seriously though, yes there are plenty who I just wonder why they bother.
  18. This again comes down to the old argument of “what have they got to gain?”... Not a lot. All lotteries in the UK are heavily regulated and I’m as confident as I can be that you will be seeing a fair, random draw.
  19. He doesn’t take six figures out of the slots, it’s far more devious than that. For those that don’t know how affiliate payments work here’s what happens.... Affiliates have a website and their streams/uploads are their direct advertising to get you on their website where you will find reviews of casino sites & games. A nice link to direct you to a casino is provided to swiftly take you there. You sign up through the link and the system recognises the affiliate link and links your account to that affiliate (e.g. Nickslots), now that affiliate probably dependent on their status with the site will now receive a certain % commission on either your deposits or losses (not 100% sure in which), so imagine you being a big Nickslots fan decide to take his recommendation to play at site “X”, you sign up deposit and lose £1,000 and nick gets 10%, yup, your “mate” has not only enabled your loss of £1,000 he’s tailed a nice £100 of it for doing so! He literally wants you to LOSE So gets a slice of YOUR cash! That said in fairness to Darren he plays a lot of FOBT and arcade which I doubt he gets anything from but will make sone advertising cash from YouTube and affiliate cash as well, he also plays at “sane” levels for the most part and seems to have a reasonable game plan which prevents him doing his bolx 🤣🤣. I don’t know Darren from Adam but I suspect he at some point one way or another has reached a point where he’s financially comfortable and with his revenues as noted above probably plays a break even game maybe he does make profit overall, I don’t know 🤷‍♂️? I just get the feeling in Darren’s case it’s not about the money per se but more like a hobby if you will, he enjoys slot play and evidently enjoys doing his videos and that’s why he does it. Others as far as I’m concerned want people depositing and losing as much as they can get out of them through their links so they can keep raking that in and feeding their own habits through the misery of others (you can decide which streamers fall into this for yourself). For the above I have NEVER signed up to an online casino through an affiliate link and never will.
  20. I have done this exercise using bank statements over a seven year period when I was really bad and I mean really bad. It was the shock and awe I needed to rein it all in at the time. I added up all deposits to online companies and all cash withdrawals over £100 as I was certain most of them were gambling related. I also added up all the returns and unexplained cash deposits into accounts as they would most certainly have come from cash gambling. Anyway the total deposits versus withdrawals left me with a deficit well into 5 figures... closer to six figures than four. Is it any wonder I was at the front of the que to sign up to Gamstop? FOBT are just the top of the iceberg, it’s the online that will decimate you.
