I'm happy to say the withdrawal of my remaining $860 came through today. I actually received $905.85, because the value of Bitcoin went up 5.33% since I put in the withdrawal.



Maybe they got a clue about who they were trying to stiff. Not sure if you were Joe Ploppy you would have the same result. Still very good news.

My article is out: DOWN AND OUT AND INTERTOPS.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I agree that Intertops was slimy and did many things wrong.

From what I gather, the deposit bonuses are geared toward getting new players to the site. They restrict you from moving money back and forth from a wallet, and the also do not let you deposit funds that you have withdrawn.

Are the AP Bonus hunters violating the spirit of those rules? Yes.

However, the site should not continue to send you bonus offers, nor should you be allowed to start a bonus if the deposited funds do not meet their Terms and Conditions. In this respect Intertops is 100% wrong. They are basically freerolling. If you lose they keep your money. If you win, they don't pay out.

I wonder why anyone would trust an online casino in the first place? There are SO many ways to get burnt from unverified software to downright theft.

I don't know about ploppies. For me, it's a Risk VS reward thing. As for the ploppies, I don't think they have to worry about cashing out their money very often.

The Wizard mentioned how he was enticed with bonus offers. It would be nice if all the online casinos were regulated and 100% safe to play at. However, as an AP I always thought that could also mean it might not be as profitable for bonuses hunting AP's, however other things might make up for it. I think the online affiliates would really get hurt if there were only regulated online casinos.

here is a situation that raised my eyebrow.

The very last part was the most disturbing part IMPO. Allowing people who are self excluded to still have access to the gambling sites is a huge no no. They deserved every single penny of those fines. The online Casino Staff SHOULD be automatically blocking the addicted gambler's IP so that the Gambler will just see something like,"This page is blocked because you are self excluded,".

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

The most disturbing part is the fact that they only allow the casinos to give one new member deposit bonus.

Isn't that the way to block banned people's access? For example, I am permanently banned at another website for starting a thread that seened like a good idea in my head but came off as potentially really awful in The Admin's point of view and in hindsight I could see why I was banned. When I refreshed about an hour later to see how well my "good idea," thread took off, I got basically only a blank screen with the message saying,"You have been permanently banned," I had to go into incognito mode to see that my "good idea in my head, awful as an actual thread" had been completely deleted. That website blocks IP so that banned members basically only see a "Banned," message.

No. Wrong on so many levels!
Incognito mode neither hides, nor changes your IP address.
Still Kudos to that other site in realising the value that you brought as a member there.
