A true and very scary story about Cirrus casino

10 replies • Last post

Well, if there were any doubts about the caracter of the Cirrus casino staff, read this story, a true story for one unknown player that made the mistake of to visit the "headquarters" of Cirrus casino in Costa Rica. He had some payouts pending for a long time and he was spending holidays in CR .

Quote:

Firstly I would like to apologise for not using my real alias as I am quite petrified by this group and I would like you to know the story.A year ago I was playing at Cirrus Casino and lost around $x,xxx no big deal.a couple of weeks later I started to gamble on sports at an outfit known as Royal Sports betroyal dot com. I deposited $x,xxx and built my balance through playing Teasers to $x,xxx. I then requested a cashout a modest amount - not too high. I got told by them I need to wait as they wish evaluate my play. So I did.

A couple of weeks later while I was in Costa Rica I decided to stop by in a place called Office Centro near Sabana Park. They were based on the 7th building of office centro on the 7th floor. Same building as another book I gamble at called Bodog. Betroyal and Cirrus I found out are owned by the same guy. Soon as I arrived on the 7th floor and introduced myself I was met by some sinster columbian looking bodyguards dressed in slick suits. Also by an acne covered indian guy in his mid 40s who appeared to be screaming his head off at some guys in the office. Not a great way to meet the owner I later found out. Anyway I was asked to leave of which I did, after spending less than 10 minutes then made my way to a resturant to grab some food. Little did I know the security guards followed me all the way there and warned me by hitting me around never to ask ever again about a cashout or mention on forums or they will have me killed. They also hit me around a few times which took me by total surprise. As you can imagine this put me off online gambling for life... and only recently after seeing some good operations such as VIP etc... have I started gambling online. People like this group need to be put to rest and never allowed to operate an online gambling outfit or any business.We need to join together and fight this crime..

Wow, that is scary stuff noctipaulo. Where did you get this story from, if you don't mind me asking. I think that there must be dozens of horror stories about this awful casino.

Casino HQ in Costa Rica?

Alone?!? Unarmed?!?

Err..........

My only advice to this guy is to wake up and smell the coffee.... or better still stay at home next time..

I live in another scarey-ish part of the spanish caribbean, so I hear this type of thing on an almost daily basis.

Cuidate gringos - especially if you ever want a 'refund' or a 'payout'. The words do not and never have existed here.

Sad but true...

We have no problem with links to CasinoMeister. It is a good site and Bryan there helps a lot of people.

To be fair to the player who posted that, it was maybe 10 years ago now and the industry then was a lot more like the wild west - if you can believe it given what goes on to this day at some casinos.

The person who owns Cirrus Casino and many others in the group has a criminal conviction for fraud. He has tried very hard to cover this up by creating elaborate website networks with fake businesses, charity foundations, Wikipedia entries, IMDB pages (yes he thinks he's a movie star) and other assorted fantasies in an attempt to bury his criminal past in the search engines. These guys are not people you would ever want to meet, let alone trust them with your money over the internet.

And once again, these are the sorts of people that the U.S. government has driven online gamblers to by trying to pursue a prohibitionist policy as opposed to regulation. Sick isn't it?

Here's the million dollar question Ed: How in the world are software providers like RTG still providing their services to casinos like Cirrus?

Why would they want to have their reputation stung by something like that, and why isn't there any accountability to them for that?

That question has been asked many times before and I've never heard a satisfactory answer. RTG just says "we provide the software and take no responsibility for what the operators do with it". To some degree I can understand that - I guess they figure its like blaming Microsoft for someone committing a crime while using Windows. But on the other hand there are so many dodgy RTG casinos that they are doing themselves a disservice by allowing it to happen. There are people that won't play at any RTG casino precisely because of it.

Great question, Slim. I never really thought about that before.

CL-Ed, I agree with you 100% that the situation is just plain SICK! Sad

I have to say that this does kind of turn me off to RTG casinos. I know that Club World is good, but I don't think I will partake in any other casinos that use the software... just too risky for me.
