Found two likely GameTech-linked casinos

Postby Thinkreadplay » Sun Jul 28, 2019 5:13 pm

Hello, this isn't a complaint as I've never played at any of these casinos, I'm not a gambling sort in general, actually quite miserly, but I felt I should post here about this.

It is highly likely that CasinoCenterCity DOT com and PlayNetCasino DOT com are ran by the Game Tech Group, AKA Affpower. One reason why I say this is that CasinoCenterCity's terms and conditions, when you enter them into Google, pop up on websites that have been proven to be ran by the Game Tech Group. PlayNetCasino's source code has "GS_doBannerAction" in it, and when I entered that into PublicWWW DOT com I found some Game Tech linked websites listed in the results.

Also, CasinoCenterCity has games from "Betclip", which I was not able to find anything about. I heavily suspect they purchased these games from a freelance developer. PlayNetCasino has some of these games, although they're not labeled as coming from "Betclip". This also ties the two together.

ThePOGG: if this violates the rules my deepest apologies. I hope you have a delightful week.

Hi ThinkReadPlay,

No this doesn't breach forum rules at all - it's sharing information and has no basis in any negative experience you have had with the operator.

As far as what you've claimed - I've taken a quick look and I'd almost certainly agree with your conclusion. Webdesign for PlayNetCasino is remarkably similar to known GTG operators, the terms are effectively identical and you are correct that the same code with 'gs' (most likely referring to 'Game Scale' software) matches on just about every GTG operator.

Initial inspection also suggests that PlayNetCasino may be running pirated games as well. I'll dig further into this over the course of this week.

I made a mistake in my first post, it's CasinoCenterCity that doesn't label some games as coming from Betclip, not PlayNetCasino. I must have muddled the two names up. I enjoyed reading your blogpost exposing Alpha Interactive Solutions/Equinox Dynamic as aliases of the Game Tech Group, by the way. I also liked that post you did about a network of shady Russian casinos and them trying to seem legitimate. You're a good writer and investigator.

The freelance developer(s) I was talking about in the first post are: https://codecanyon.net/user/all-scripts/portfolio and https://codecanyon.net/user/codethislab/portfolio. They don't seem to be selling rigged games or anything like that, but I suspect that the Game Tech Group brought the games (or got them for free), probably tinkered with the settings knowing them, and then uploaded them to CasinoCenterCity and PlayNetCasino.

Also, BetClip DOT net pretends to be some sort of live-dealer casino service, but the phone number is presumably generated, it's not a real phone number, and it plays demo games on their website. Here's a link to a demo of one of the games they have (if you add the slashes): betclip.net SLASH fruitybar SLASH html/. That sounds dodgy and dishonest to me, and it makes one wonder what else they may have been up to.
Checking the nameservers, BitzGames DOT com is ran by them, as is lotto123456 DOT com, probably a Hebrew version of BitzGames.

https://domainbigdata.com/109.203.101.34 shows some casino websites linked to this (some are obviously just testing websites, abandoned, but others are active - or look it, at least), although BitzKingz DOT com looks much more like something out of the Virtual Casino Group than the Game Tech Group. It even lists AceRevenue as an affiliate program and links to them. This is really quite confusing.

I think I worked out where these casinos are coming from. 777playgames.com has sitesec.net setting cookies and if you go to sitesec.net you'll see "Transgol" at the top as a logo of sorts. Transgol also has a website at transgol.com, and it does iGaming software and offers a live-chat thing known as sitesec. All of the casinos I've found connected to this that has a live-chat thing use sitesec.net. hitbet247.com is also connected but for some reason when you enter it you get a cookie from bCasino, which is linked to the Game Tech Group, likely because they've stolen bCasino's images for the Gambling Commission, GambleAware, and GamStop stuff at the bottom (can be found if you view the page source). They also made a website for an abandoned "independent" testing group: www DOT gekkogroup4u DOT com/inspections.html

Hi thinkreadplay,

I have done some more digging into this issue and will have something to say on it shortly. However we have to wait until a couple of 3rd parties confirm certain pieces of information.

Ah, ok. Thank you for the investigating you've been doing, I have no doubt you're very busy what with all the complaints you get due to the complaint service you run and it's very generous of you to do this. Also, ignore the e-mail I sent you - I think something funny was going on with the cookies there that was making the forum say my IP address was banned from the forum, which I was pretty confused by. I hope you enjoy the weekend!

Thank you very much, ThePOGG. I think that CasinoCenterCity also has a clone website at CasinoDreams.bet and that it's linked to Transgol, an Israel-located company that does iGaming software. MajestySlots changed the name of the company they're ran by from Tall Mountain Limited to Deep River B.V., although ClubLoungeCasino and CashSpinsCasino still have Tall Mountain Limited at the bottom. ClubLoungeCasino has an affiliate program called StayLuckyPartners.

About the Russian websites, I saw some Game Tech Group connected websites being formerly hosted on an IP range the Vulkan casinos were using at that moment, so I think they could be working together. By the way, Atlantic Management B.V., which runs 4 Russian-focused casinos, is very likely linked to the Welcome Partners group - vulkanmaximum3.com, part of the Vulkan websites, has "nascms.co" as one of the websites setting cookies and the Atlantic Management B.V. websites do too. A list of these websites is here: askgamblers.com/owner/atlantic-management-b-v. The affiliate program for Atlantic Management B.V. owned casinos is called JimPartners.

Also, I found a post you made in 2015 about "Brivio Limited" being linked to the Welcome Partners group: https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/threads/original-or-fake.66587/post-682335 - Brivio Limited now run a website called gg.bet, an esports betting website which sponsors some esports teams and even has tournaments named after it. GG.bet is further connected by their website using "yhelper.net", which some of the Vulkan casino websites do too. I strongly suspect they are connected to the Welcome Partners group which runs the Vulkan casinos.
