Sun Club Casino Busted Using Pirated Games

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Internet betting site Sun Club Casino has been busted using pirated games, thereby earning a spot onto the blacklist of most reputable affiliate sites in the process.

Our sister site Latest Casino Bonuses conducted the investigation, noticing that the site's claim of holding a Curacao license was sketchy as there was no link to the certification. Looking further, Sun Club was found to be offering Novomatic and Greentube games to players, but the issue at hand is that Novomatic doesn't sanction games to casinos that solely hold a Curacao license.

This led to the team looking at the host servers for the games, which showed that they didn't match up with the legitimate host servers. Rogue casinos often employ pirated games to offer titles that they don't hold the rights to. This allows the casino to escape paying licensing fees while also altering the game's odds in order to screw players over.

Players are strongly urged to avoid playing at casinos that use bootleg games for multiple reasons. The theft of games is outright wrong, and players are being put at risk for playing slots that are rigged. We blacklist every site that we find to be using pirated games, and most of the time these sites are scams or involved in criminal activity.

Yeah these cheap rip-off casinos with fake games are like cockroaches, popping up out of the cracks of the internet whenever you're not looking! There are companies that are deliberately selling these games and marketing them as genuine as part of a "run your own casino" white label package. Some of the operators of these casinos probably don't even know the games are fake. Not that it excuses them as they are obviously too clueless to be trusted with people's money.

No doubt also that many are resurrections of casinos that have been busted in the past. All the crooks have to do is hut down then spin up a new domain name and a website template and they are up and running with a new casino.

I hadn't even heard of this casino but this obviously brings a lot of negative attention to them, and for very good reason. I so much dislike sites that don't care about anything legal and there are always people who fall for it.

In so called real world you would of been chased by the authorities for that and could end up in jail, it's a shame these guys could do anything they want cheating and nobody going after them!
It should be the largest genuine casinos primary goal I think(if there's not anyone else interested), in the end not only the punters suffering from the frauds loosing their money but the casinos loosing a potential clients I think.
