    Question How recently have you added new sites to your rogue site list?

    About four years ago I asked a poll question about whether GPWA members published a list of rogue sites on the web, and if they did, how many sites they identified as rogue. At the time about 2/3rds of folks answering the poll said they did publish a list of rogue sites, and on average, those lists included about twenty sites. You can see that poll and the responses here: How many gaming sites do you identify as rogue or blacklist on your portal site?

    Well, I have rogue sites on my mind again. Over the past week or two I've had some interactions with the legal department of Novomatic AG. It seems the Casino City website I oversee listed a number of sites that claim to operate slot games offered by Novomatic, but the slot games were counterfeit stolen games and were obtained illegally. You have to wonder, if a site will operate using stolen games from a large gaming manufacturer, what will they do with unwitting players that don't have in-house attorneys on call? The result was a new record for me - 11 online gaming sites got marked as rogue on Casino City in one day.

    In my view, these sites deserve to be named and shamed, so here is the list for everyone to see:

    1. Adjara Bet
    2. AzartPlay Casino
    3. e-Casino365
    4. Europe Bet
    5. FeralPoker
    6. Futuriti
    7. Gaminator Club
    8. Geogrand
    9. Luxor Slots
    10. Outcome Bet
    11. Peter Palace Casino


    For this week's poll question, let us know how long it has been since you last added a site to a public rogue or blacklist. And besides voting in the poll, be sure to post how often, on average, you add new sites or update your list, and some of your favorite reasons for doing so.

    My rogue list is longer than the list of sites I recommend. I add to the list if players or affiliates are cheated and if the operator misrepresents their product (i.e. - claims they are licenced but are not).

    I add to my list on an "as needed" basis and I am proud to say that such lists have achieved results - both in helping players avoid playing at rogue sites AND in recovering money they were "cheated" out of.

    I don't have a specific rogue page on my sites but when one does go rogue and I happen to have a review up for them - I remove the links to the casino itself, but instead of removing the review - I mention that they are now rogue and the reason why.

    I recently did this for Vegas Sky ( RivalGaming ) as their affiliate links go through to a site called TrafficBoyz if you use IE. This has been raised with them many times but they can't seem to be bothered to do anything about it. They also owe me money - only a few hundred dollars but still...

    I used Vegas Sky as one example and probably had about 10 reviews up for them from different sites in my network. This is now 10 pages that mention they are rogue instead of just one main rogue page.

    Having said that I have been meaning to do a rogue list but haven't got around to it as I prefer spending my time on positive stuff instead of negative stuff, so I keep putting it off.

    I haven't touched my rogue page for a long time. I probably should do a bit more work on it.

    Michael, are you saying that the software these sites are using like for instance "Betsoft" games at Luxor Slots are being used without being a licensee of Betsoft??? Are there any news articles or something to back that up? That's pretty serious.

    I don't promote any of the above but I agree with BigDaddy that this is a serious issue.

    Praise and reprimand...
    The mixture is the essence.

    Why nobody is posting a positive list?
