Vegas Crest used to offer much of the Gameart library -- strangely listed under the game provider "Xplosive" instead of Gameart -- until those games disappeared a few weeks ago. I had previously heard some interesting accusations towards Xplosive on another casino discussion site and the games always played a little sketchy to me anecdotally.
Well the Gameart games have since reappeared on VC (sort of) under the "Lucky Games" supplier name yet all of the games look to be retitled. It's like bizarro world (see screenshots comparing the games on VC to Gameart games on Bitstarz) with the games' mechanics and pays being the same, just with different titles.
Anyone know what the deal is here? Why would they go through the trouble of re-titling every game and saying it's from "Lucky Games" instead of just offering the Gameart games? They load off a very generic-sounding "lucky897.com" server which looks a little 🤔 to me...
I see two possibilities:
1. They could be doing a Betsoft or Pragmatic Play and creating a faux supplier with the game names changed (and most likely RTPs too). They offer the "name brand" games in regulated markets and the re-titled games under the secondary brand in grey or unlicensed markets to get around licensing and regulatory issues.
2. The games could be pirated knock-offs.
Given it is Vegas Crest, who are an effectively unregulated Curacao casino, I've a hunch that it is option 1. Gameart are probably cleaning up their act in advance of trying to get some kind of proper European license (or maybe they already have one and are in trouble?) and hoping no-one will notice what they are doing.
Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.
