I have no idea what I am claiming, because I never heard of this place in my life, so how could I have an "existing rewards points balance" there or anywhere? I don't know They are obviously using sly tactics to get me to accept a no-deposit bonus. That is what I gather from the message anyway.

Going to unsubscribe to that message. I have never heard of them before, and I don't appreciate the solicitation.

I got that one too. My guess is that the former English Harbour group are responsible because they used to run the same VIP Rewards Plan thing.

At this stage I don't know if they have sold their customer database to these people or they are the same people starting again.

I have never played at English Harbor, so they must have found my name from someone else. I don't like all this sharing of information, but seems there is not much I can do about it. I did "unsubscribe" to their offer. We'll see.

English Harbour had about 6 or 7 casinos such as Millionaire Casino, Slots Galore, Caribbean Gold, VIP Slots and a few more. So if you played at any one of those you could be on their list.

Okay. Yes., out of those, the only one I have played at is Slots Galore, so that must be it. Thanks!

Well, so much for unsubscribing! Sad

I unsubscribed to the email/place, and now I have another message from them in my inbox referring to the "email we sent you last week." Nice. What a turn off.

I will try again to unsubscribe. That is all I can do, I guess.

Is DRAKE an actual casino or what? They are sure trying to lure me there. Makes me nothing but angry.

NOW when I click on the "unsubscribe" button/link it won't work. Goes nowhere/nothing happens.

Nice.

Its funny that "your existing Rewards Plan balance" is worth a square $50 - the exact same as me!

Anyway, I've taken a quick look. They are indeed a casino. They accept Americans from most states, but not all of them. They are operating out of Curacao and they use games from Betsoft. Apart from that I have no judgement on them as I have not played there. And frankly I hate spammers so they aren't off to a good start.

But we'll check them out anyway.

I noticed the link ended in eu, so I was assuming no American players.

I will be interested in hearing a review on them, but I agree with you that they are NOT off to a good start by spamming me and on top of that, not allowing me to "unsubscribe" from their stupid list. lol

Keep us posted, anyway! Thanks! Smile

A bunch of casinos that continue serving Americans have switched to .eu domains recently because they are afraid the U.S. government might seize their .com domains. They have prior form for doing it to other casinos and poker rooms so the fear is not without merit unfortunately.

Yeah, that is what happened to Bodog recently. After that a lot of casinos are out on .eu bandwagon.

This place keeps sending me that same free 50 dollar offer. What did we ever decide about this place? I might be tempted to try it if my funds run out for my every other weekly bankroll. lol

They sure are persistent.

I believe one of our testers tried to register and it wouldn't work, or the software wouldn't download or something like that. So it has kind of slipped to the back of our queue!

I also had problems getting Drake to run. The damn thing wouldn't let me register fully, but that has not stopped them from sending me lots of spam that I cannot seem to get filtered out a lot.

I can't vouch for the casino as a whole, but not be able to register myself fully and sending me spam anyway kind of puts them on my jerk list.

They would not allow me to unsubscribe either! Angry

So what is the sense of SPAMMING then not letting players even register? I didn't even try. I think I peeked at the place, then came right here to see what everyone else thought. Forget them! There are plenty other options even for U.S. players, that I don't need them OR their SPAM! Bomb

OMGosh, you guys, my oldest son ADORED Mr. T. when he was little. From the age of four or five on, whenever I brought him for a haircut he would ask for a mohawk just like his "idol." lmbo! I never gave in, and now sometimes I wish I just would let him get it out of his system. lol There were other kids his age with all kinds of crazy haircuts (remember the "rat tails?"), so a mohawk wouldn't have really been that bad, lol.

Too funny.

I was just talking about Mr. T. with my oldest son after this thread and bring all this up. I had to tease him a little, lol.

Did you HAVE a rat tail, CL-Ed, or do you just remember them? lol I know lots of my sons' friends had them "back in the day." Smile
