Fake games, dubious licenses, piracy, and illegal practices are the scourge that plagues the iGaming market. It is not unusual for some casino operators to decide and try something quite distasteful in order to gain more money. We are not talking about extortion or simple theft, the case here is old as the seven seas itself – forgery.
What Four Crowns Casino tried to do is naïve as it is controversial. To think that providing Dutch players with fake Novomatic, NetEnt, IGT, EGT, Merkur and Aristocrat games would go unnoticed is quite sloppy, or arrogant even.
One again, Four Crowns Casino got itself into trouble.
The place of our story is in the Curaçao jurisdiction, a place where 4Crown’s utterly failed to acquire validation seal from one of four master license holders – Antillephone (8048/JAZ), CIL (5536/JAZ), Cyberluck (1668/JAZ), or Gaming (365/JAZ).
This little malpractice of theirs is not tied to Curaçao only. The seal of approval is also missing in their venues in Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
The worst part of the story is that nobody in Curaçao seems to be bothered by that. Master license holders over there are rather difficult to reach and CIGA (Curaçao Internet Gaming Association) just turned the blind eye.
Whatever the reason for their indifference, it seems that regulators will tolerate this kind of behavior in the future so this is probably not the last story that we hear about 4Crown’s “exploits”.
