Rogue Affactive and RevenueJet group casinos shut down, owners in custody

17 replies • Last post

I have some both good and bad news.

This week, it has come to light that the owners of the Affactive and RevenueJet casino groups have been arrested in Israel and charged with crimes relating to fraud, stock market manipulation, identity theft and other crimes.

They are accused of operating illegal pump and dump penny stock scams, and involvement in the recent hacks of JP Morgan bank of all places, along with other criminal enterprise. They are being held in Israel pending extradition to the United States where we can only hope they spend a long time in jail.

More info here:

That is the good news. It is heartening to see predators like this that we have been warning people about for years finally in custody where they belong.

The bad news is for those of you with money in their casinos. I don't think we're going to see anyone get paid. If you had money recently deposited in their casinos, I would seriously consider charging back your deposits ASAP with your credit card companies if possible.

We'll have more news on this as it comes to light. For now here are the list of shuttered casinos:

Affactive Group
Begado Casino
Casino Titan
Golden Cherry Casino
Grand Macao Casino
Jackpot Grand Casino
Slots Jungle Casino
Slots of Fortune
WinPalace Casino

RevenueJet Group
Classy Coin Casino
Grand Parker Casino
Loco Panda Casino
Onbling Casino
Ruby Royal Casino

Oh, wow, I see some familiar names up there, but I don't think I have played in any of those casinos I have gotten emails from some, and I think I checked out a few of those websites way in the past. I do feel bad for those who have money in those casinos, but for the owners, karma is a bitch!

It is interesting to note that a large network of thousands of hacked blog sites that have had malware injected into them to serve casino ads for the past year or more have all gone down at the same time. It looks like we now know who was behind that too.

I wonder if there are others that will get dragged down with them. I doubt the couple of chumps that have been arrested were the ones doing all the hacking and spamming. They were no doubt paying for the whole thing to happen though so yeah... karma.

If they had not been involved in JP Morgan hacking, they probably would still be running until now.

Player protection is not the main reason at all, as I feel about this good news, anyway Smile

Sharpshooter,

All I can say is that I am glad that these guys are behind bars. This past January I ran the three stooges slot up to $50k and only received a very low percentage of that money through the withdrawals. Every time I went for a 5k withdraw Grand Parker would find an excuse to lower my withdraw to a lower amount at the 11hour or last minute. I would go the full time waiting and they offered me only $100 on my withdraw several times. I finally got fed up with these guys and called my credit card company to do a credit card reversal. Grand Parker would have caller id and not pick up the phone when I called and when they did they would smart off telling me to be patient. The only thing I can suggest is to do a credit card reversal on what you put into the Onbling Casino. I am sorry Sharpshooter you are going through this. In January when I hit that big amount I thought it was my year but Grand Parker Welched the worse thing in gambling.

Thanks for the advice...my only concern is that I signed a faxback form...and the charges were months ago. Should I still go forward with reversing the charges?

Sharpshooter,

If the purchase was within 6 months the credit card companies will honor a charge back on your deposit. Call your credit card company and contact the dispute department inform them that you did not get what you had coming from the merchant and want to do a charge back.This process takes at least 30 to 60 days but your funds will be applied after the dispute is over. The best thing to do is to call your credit card company.

I highly doubt that there is anyone working there who will be producing a faxback form to argue the case. They have shut down the casinos overnight, all staff are out of work, and the owners are in jail. No-one is offering to pay anyone any of the money that was in their casinos at the time they shut them down so don't feel bad or anything, they are thieving scum. It looks to me like they are trying to destroy as much evidence as they can that they were running these casinos. The simplest thing would be to say that the merchant disappeared and went out of business without giving you what you paid for.

Reading the non-payment cases of other players, I am so lucky that I got the withdrawls from Begado and Slots Jungle, even though the unpaid amounts were not that big compared to the other players'.

Thank you, CL-ED !!!

I could be mistaken but Ruby Royal (Rival) should be added to the list of casinos involved.

Korzun,

I played the same Game 3 stooges brides , got it up to 10k - Which I was betting an unbelievable amount...
I wanted to do a withdrawl process of 2700.00 first time, and then low and behold the nitemare unfolded.
I got the run around so many times, I even had my bank account liquidated from this A-holes which was
shown that they hey gone into my checking account - Done a ACH transfer without my acknowledgement
for 1500.00 during the one day process, I had to call the authorities and the bank and do the quick process
of getting my money back!!!...They lied to Navy Federal Credit Union, saying I authorized it Bunch of thieves...
I then got spammed day and nite no matter how many times I blocked them...And the malware which was
attached to there PRogramme when downloaded was atrocious!...
