Happy Hugo - Self exclusion and jurisdiction


Found for the Casino - Self-exclusions at Curacao license gambling operators do not carry over to other properties on the license.

Read our Happy Hugo Casino Review.

Player's Complaint

I was self excluded last 2018 at Viggoslots for gambling addiction and jurisdiction. Even now i cannot access the site and says site is blocked due to jurisdiction but then i relapsed and signed up at happyhugo without knowing they are from the same company. Since i was not in proper mental state j keep depositing and losing. They will not refund due to self exclusion. They dont have proper responsible gaming limit and will not recognize jurisdiction law.

Hi babyshopph,

This is the 3rd complaint you have submitted against a Curacao licensed property where you are seeking losses refunded because you have self-excluded with a different Curacao licensed property. As we have repeatedly explained to you, self-exclusions under the Curacao licensing system only apply to the property they are requested at.

I would also suggest that you may benefit from our free Responsible Gambling app BetBlocker. This app will allow you to restrict your internet capable devices from accessing over 6.9k gambling websites, including both Happy Hugo and Viggoslots.

Sorry we cannot be of further assistance.

Hi Babyshopph,

That makes no difference. As I've repeatedly explained to you, self-exclusions at Curacao licensed properties only apply to the property they are requested at. These casinos are 'white labels'. The license is bought from a central company but player databases are not shared with the other companies renting in the license.
