24Pokies Casino Busted Using Pirated Games

Vigilant gamblers alongside the Casino Listings management team busted another bogus casino this week when it was discovered that Australian-focused site 24Pokies was using pirated games.

The fraud was discovered by CL-Ed on Wednesday when he noticed a winning screenshot in our forum that showed a Novomatic game. This led to him being skeptical, as Novomatic games aren't allowed to be offered for real money in Australia. The casino is clearly targeted toward Aussies as it uses the term "pokies", which is what our friends down under call slot machines. This was picked up on by CL user Blackjack AA, who also spotted the fraud.

An investigation into the matter revealed that 24Pokies uses legitimate game servers for free play versions, likely in an effort to draw in players and make them think that the casino is legitimate. Upon signing up for an account the servers are changed to bogus versions that aren't licensed to the casino.

There are a couple of other sites that appear to be associated with the same operator, all of which are running the same fraudulent games:

This is a major issue, as it means that the casino is a scam that is highly likely to rip you off. We urge all players avoid playing at this site. If you have money on the casino pull it out as soon as possible and close your account.

It looks like these guys are associated with, or maybe skins of, other sites we already had on our blacklist called 77Jackpot and 1bet2bet.

Take care people!

As some casino softwares have been closed for Australians recently, it gives chances for criminals to form a kind of black markets (?).

Nice catch of them, CL-Ed, BlackjackAA !!!
