First - the simple answer is no, I have never heard or seen of this one before.

I took a quick look to give you my impressions:

- It must be a very new site as it is has no recorded pages at archive.org.
- Website appears to be hosted in Hong Kong. This is very unusual, in fact I don't remember ever coming across another online casino that is hosted in Hong Kong before.
- Domain registration is privacy protected so there is no clue there as to who is running the casino.
- The website does not list a company name for the owner or operator, and refers to itself always by the domain name.
- The website does not specify where its operator is located, nor whether it is licensed by any jurisdiction. There is no phone number to contact them so again no clues there.
- It looks like they do accept Americans judging by this list:

Quote:

Please note that we DO NOT accept registrations and/or deposits/withdrawals from any of the following countries. Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia (Hrvatska), Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Hong Kong, Romania, Russia, Philippines, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine

- The first term for the welcome bonus contradicts itself by saying one thing in words and another with the example numbers given:

Quote:

1. Minimum deposit amount to qualify for this promotion is $10. Wagering requirements on the welcome bonuses are 40x the deposit and bonus before any cash-outs will be permitted. For Example: deposit $20 get $20 as a bonus and your wagering requirements will be $20 x 40 = $800

- 40x (deposit + bonus) on a $20 deposit + $20 bonus is $1600, not $800. Which is it supposed to be? Assuming the worst case, a wagering requirement of 80xB (40xD+B = 80xB at 100%) on a non-cashable bonus is so bad that you should never claim it, as it is an attempt to lock you into long term wagering and a high chance of losing rather than a genuine offer to boost your bankroll.

- Enjoy waiting a month to get your withdrawals? This is the place to play!

Quote:

Cashouts are processed on a first come, first served basis. Cashouts are processed 24/7. Typical times for cashout deleivery are as follows: 20-30 business days.

After all that, I'm surprised to see games from Amaya Gaming on the site. I don't believe I have seen them available to American players anywhere else.

My gut tells me to stay well away from this place for the time being. There are many things that are definitely not right there.

Thanks Ed, belarus restricted, so not interesting at all. But SUB looks awful, right.
And Amaya should not accept USA players, it is strange.

Ok I have to confess. I'm not stupid and I've seen just about everything from spammers before. Signing up from an IP address in the Philippines and then setting your country to the USA like Mmvkhm... yeah its not gonna work.

So it seems to me that this was a poor attempt to spam our forum and get a brand new casino's name out there. And look how it has backfired.

I'm happy to point out dodgy casinos to our readers and spamming our forum is one of the quickest ways to get me to do it. Give it a week or two and suddenly we'll start receiving emails from the casino asking us to remove this thread. Its sadly predictable.

Omg, someone still think that spam still works? At good affiliate website forum? It is just sad, nothing else, i am really tired of seeing such absolutely unmanner things.
I have an idea, why not create a list of such casinos, who just spam? Just a new thread, with a list of spammers? No one like spam...*opened inbox, saw 10 new messages for a day from casino rewards group*

and change thread title. And mention in your post something like:
double diamonds casino is scam.
Just for search engines.
Double diamonds casino use rogue tactics.
I can made 100 more sentences with such statements, but most will be with word 'idiots' lol

The sad thing is that there are many sites where comment spam does in fact work. Usually old sites where the webmaster does not look after them. They keep trying here, every single day. No matter what we do to make it hard for them.

This will start showing up on the search engines soon. In fact it is already #1 for "anyone heard of doublediamonds.co"
