Announcement: change to CLchips in this forum

5 replies • Last post

Over the past few weeks we have been going through a few ideas aimed at refining the CLchips rewards program we run here. The events over the weekend where we were "forum bombed" by a multi-accounter trying to game the system have accelerated things a little.

As of now, we no longer award CLchips for conversations in the General forums section. This currently includes the Forum Games and General Chat forums. We still award CLchips for discussion in all forums within the Gambling section, plus a couple of other forums like the Help and Feedback forums, along with the reviews, news articles, and any other pages where you may make a comment.

In addition we have introduced a new mini-review bonus where you will earn extra CLchips for posting reviews of casinos that you have played at. You can check out the full detail of that opportunity right here.

You can see all the different ways to earn CLchips here.

We're sorry that we had to change the rules, but in light of recent events, we felt that we were left with little choice.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.
Every comment you make in our forum earns you CLchips which can be used to buy real prizes in our CLchips shop!

No problem! I am not sure about others, but I play for FUN and the chips are just a "perk." I have NEVER been a member of a forum where I am awarded for posting anything at all, so this has been such a wonderful experience for me. However, that is not what drew me here in the first place. I think you all know that without me having to explain it again, but I just love this place, lol! Smile

I am really disappointed that the Forum Games have been eliminated from the reward program.I really enjoyed it and don't think it is fair to those who play by the rules to be punished for someone else's dishonesty.I am a minority of one,but that is just the way I feel.If there was a problem,I am sure the rules that were already in place could have eliminated any member who was abusing the site.

I totally understand and respect how you feel wildgerri.

Sometimes its tough to find the right balance but we think we're on the right track here. We're always open to suggestions for other ways to earn CLchips and we'll definitely continue to run regular contests for CLchips within these forums.

I do understand your perspective, WG. Sometimes people want to connect in other ways and may not be extremely into the online casino scene, but come here for fun, games, general chat, and camaraderie and friendship. And I also understand the part of one person spoiling things for all. But I think some of these changes were being discussed beforehand. I just have to be grateful I am rewarded for posting in any way, because like I said, I have know of no other forum that does this.

PLEASE still join us in the games and explore the other forums. Also, I hope you will still enter our contests. You know I think the world of you and I enjoy your sense of humor, so please don't be a stranger. Smile

I followed Hope here and I have enjoyed the many games we have played here. I will continue to play the games. I have greatly appreciated the CL chips. They have allowed me to buy things I probably wouldn't have bought otherwise. I understand that you want the website to grow in other ways. The reviews of the casinos will help others in deciding whether to play at a particular casino or not.

I know that because of Hope's review of a casino (can't remember which one) that I decided to go play there. Without her review it would have been just another casino on a list. It's always fun to see how other people perceive a casino.

I have enjoyed chatting with other people here too like BF. We had a war of the women vs. men, but he won. It's always nice to log in and see people that you want to chat with.

I wish only the best for CL. Smile
