Online Casinos Using Direct Mail To Target U.S. Players

3 replies • Last post

With all this talk about offshore online casinos being "illegal" I was surprised by what arrived in my mail box the other day. I ended up getting a nice glossy post card which arrived in a plain white envelope. The card was advertising two RTG casinos called Slots Jungle and Casino Titan.

Being a marketing and advertising industry guy before the economy collapsed I was quite impressed with the card as it was well designed and definitely got me to respond to their call to action, but I was VERY surprised an offshore "illegal" casino would dare have the guts to target market U.S. players this way. Kinda seems like a high risk marketing venture albeit very profitable if they can get online players like me to download their casinos.

Any of the other U.S. gamblers gotten marketing material like this? What did you get? Did it drive you to their casinos?

The question you should be asking, assuming you never played there or one of their related casinos, is how on earth did they get your mailing address? They are a sister site to WinPalace, so what we say there applies to them too.

I get stuff in the mail like that regularly too, mostly from casinos I actually play at. Its a similar situation because its illegal in Australia for an online casino to accept Australian customers, but its not illegal for a player to play. (And you thought the U.S. was weird!) And of course none of the casinos are actually in Australia, so the law is effectively useless.

I've seen plenty of mailers but Party Casino probably sent the most awesome mailer, made of cardboard and with popup sections for a circus promotion a few years back.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

i get snail mail every once in awhile. And if they are free chips i don't walk to my puter i run! If they are just deposit bonuses and nothing that extraordinary i don't bother. I can find those kind of bonuses right on line.
