Read our Magik Casino Review.
I am aproblem gambler and have excluded myself from all UK based casinos.Unfortunately I answered a promotional ad sent through from this casino and that was it I was hooked again. The system looked very familiar and after I lost all my money I realised it was affiliated with other casinos from which I have excluded myself.I e mailed and asked for an explanation as to why I was allowed to open an account but the response was simply we have closed your account now and excluded you. Tonight 31.12.17 as I type this to you I checked and was able to log in. Immediately a box came up saying I had no money in my account and transferred me to the cashier. I did not make a deposit however even after advising them I am a problem gambler and asking them to exclude me they have not despite saying they had. This is an unethical casino and other players should be warned. I would like to try and get my money back from them as they should never have allowed me to open an account when I have excluded myself from associated sites. There is no mechanism for a player to set a deposit limit or self exclude, this has to be done through chat and as I see tonight they don't exclude you even when they are told of a gambling problem and lie when they say they will exclude you !
Hello Pogg, Many thanks for your reply.
I have now (too late) done some digging on Magik and other casinos such as Ridika, Play Sunny and i Net as despite excluding myself from all these casinos I was not only allowed to log back in but actively encouraged to do so with e mails saying I had a bonus waiting for me. As you can guess I have a terrible problem and I am desperate to find a way of stopping gambling These casinos have no morals at all and I have lost a fortune due to their unscrupulous tactics. I would be absolutely delighted to beta test your new RG tool. Thank you very much for the offer and any other assistance you can offer to get some of my money back (although I am aware these companies are unscrupulous and the likelihood of any offering a refund is minuscule). Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you re the RG tool.
The tool will be ready for testing in a few weeks. If you can provide me details of the devices and platforms you'd like to try I'll forward the right versions on asap (i.e. laptop/windows, mobile/iOS etc etc)?
I'm not familiar with PlaySunny or iNet casino. Could you provide urls for those operators?
Thank you this is great. I play on a lap top mac book air and have an android phone.Although I don't play on my phone I think it best to block that too. inetbet. Here is a copy of correspondence I sent them yesterday. Despite excluding myself they continue to send me bonus offers and I can log back in. I am trying my best however the unscrupulous tactics are awful. Begin forwarded message: From: [EDIT] Subject: Fwd: Manager Bonus Date: 4 January 2018 16:43:14 GMT To: iNetBet Manager As you can see from my e mail below I excluded myself from your casino. Despite this you keep sending me free bonuses to entice me back on to your site. Despite the e mail below I again today received another bonus which enticed me back on to your casino. Despite the e mail below I was still not excluded and deposited money again. Please return all the deposits I have made since I excluded myself. I have complained about your unethical practices to an online gambling review site. I will also forward them this email, the one below and the one from today saying I have a bonus. Please confirm my deposits will be returned and also confirm that you will exclude me from your site and stop sending me e mails stating I have a bonus.

Thank you so much. I have sent you a reply with details. I send her the url for the casinos referred to in your reply. I am amazed that play sunny allow me to deposit as it appears they have a uk url and I have excluded myself from all uk casinos.
Firstly apologies for the delayed response - due to the links contained in your posts your posts were incorrectly blocked by our spam filters.
The tool is still being worked on and I'll pass along the relevant versions as soon as they are ready.
Firstly PlaySunny - At the present time there is no global self-exclusion scheme being operated by the UKGC. My understanding is that something to this effect is in development, but has not been implemented at the present time. That being the case unless you have directly self-excluded at one of the properties on the PlaySunny license. Self-excluding at other UKGC licenses would not extend to PlaySunny.
iNetBet - if you want us to look into this for you you should submit another complaint. I will however state that iNetBet are not UKGC licensed either and as such are not subject to the same Responsible Gambling requirements as UK licensed operators.

Hi Chrismeid - welcome to ThePOGG.com!
Firstly I need to make you aware that as a UK citizen you should not be playing with any operator that does not hold a UKGC license. Magik Casino do not have a UKGC license and are breaking UK law by accepting your play.
This leads me on to my next point - Magik Casino are part of the Game Tech Group N.V. This is one of the most widely Blacklisted groups in operation today and are Blacklisted here. Due to this they are routinely non-responsive to complaints posted at this site.
I'd strongly encourage you to disengage from any future play with this operator!
Further to this the license they do hold does not require them to meet the same Responsible Gambling standards that are required of UK licensed operators. As such Self-Exclusions do not carry over to other properties after a restriction at one.
I'm happy to try and contact the operator for you but you should be aware from the outset that the chances of success are very low.
Finally, we are in the final stages of developing a free Responsible Gambling tool that will help players restrict themselves from accessing thousands of gambling websites. This is intended to help people in exactly your situation by simply stopping them accessing online gambling websites. If you would like to beta test this for us please let me know.
