Here is one from our very own Casino Listings:

Looks like they have a 50 dollar no deposit deal going on right now. No U.S. Players, surprise surprise, lol!

The first link says this:

U.S. Players: Virtual City Online Casino allows players from all but 11 US states. Online casino players from: Michigan, Illinois, Louisiana, Oregon, Wisconsin, Washington, Indiana, Nevada, South Dakota, New York and New Jersey are blocked, but all other states are allowed access.

CL Link says no U.S. players. Do you know if the above is true, CL-Ed?

Interesting choice of marketing strategy (a lot of people would read that and instantly think its a scam), but the offer is likely to be legitimate. They are part of a massive group of casinos known as Casino Rewards. If you have ever played at any of them, then they would have your address and can send you stuff like this. See down the bottom where it says you are a Casino Rewards member?

Check our review and look down the right side of the page where we list all the related casinos and that might provide a clue as to how they obtained your email: Virtual City Casino Review

One thing I would check the terms closely as this group does not often give away free chips of that size. It could be the "50 free" is just a regular 100% bonus that requires a deposit or something.

That other site is out of date hope. All Microgaming casinos stopped accepting new players from the USA 2 years ago.

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

You might want to see if CL-Ed can take your name and email off of there so you don't get spammed. It looked like a spam mail to me. I probably would have deleted it unless the casino sounded familiar to me.

Thanks, CL-Ed. I thought it strange that they would accept players for other states and not others. Once I found the CL review, I wasn't even going to link that one, but I was curious about that statement. More "old news," lol.

Ed I will PM you with my email adress and username cus I really dont want these kind of offers from that groupe and I dont really either like that they send out an email claiming that I have won something when in fact its just an offer to anybody. So In my case the not serious feeling that this is just spam makes my alarm bells ring!!
Thanks for the information all off you!! Smile

I have checked with Casino Rewards and this is a template mailer that can be sent by any of their affiliates. It is not sent by Casino Rewards themselves. So you are in fact most likely mailed by someone else who has obtained your email address somehow. I've PM'd you as Casino Rewards would like you to forward them the email so they can check out who is sending it and whether they are being naughty.

haha great Ed.. actually Casinorewards will stand alone with a bad name for spaming if they don't take these guys down! Tongue a serious look in to this email just shows that It stinks of spam from square 1. OFC I have not won anything.. why would I? But yes, that Casino is doing a 50 free campaing at the moment and it's open to EVERYBODY!

Why not send that info instead and I would be more likely to check it out!??
