Fake Novomatic Games Found at VegasCasino.io

VegasCasino.io is no longer in good graces, and in fact, serves as the latest addition to a growing list of online casinos that have been caught offering fake titles from Novomatic.  This news comes after sister site, CasinoListings.com, posted a series of screenshots, catching the casino red-handed in its use of counterfeit slot games. Online gambling guide, Latestcasinobonuses.com (LCB, followed suit, promptly adding the site to its list of casinos to steer clear of.

The Proof

The truth uncovered following an investigation sparked by one intelligent player’s intuition. The player’s suspicions were founded by the fact that during their time spent playing at the site, they had never once accumulated enough winnings for a withdrawal request, despite having made deposits reaching 1850 mBTC in a short timeframe. Suspicions further raised by a lack of promotional offerings following an initial signup bonus, along with minimum denominations on games set to higher-than-average amounts.

If there is doubt in anyone’s mind, there are more details to support this instance of fraud. On one Novomatic game in particular— Book of Ra, players were given the option of making IN-GAME BITCOIN WAGERS, a choice not provided by the brand’s official provider, Greentube.

Those who still need convincing can take comfort in the fact that the game’s interface was inconsistent with the legitimate Novomatic game, as functions appeared out of place. The final element which sealed the deal was a faulty domain. The official Greentube domain is nrgs-b2b.greentube.com.mt. Instead, the pirated game was traced back to an entirely different, and unknown server.

What Now?

Book of Ra was not the only fraudulent title on offer. Others included were, Beetle Mania Deluxe, Lucky Lady’s Charm, and Lord of the Ocean. The games are removed, but the site’s corrupt imprint has already been left on the online gaming community. Needless to say, this once trusted online casino is now one to avoid at all costs! Whether or not they have learned their lesson, the fact is that they were willing to go down this path in the first place, and have since made every attempt to cover their tracks as to avoid any repercussions.
