Trusted site 888, has made a costly mistake after launching their online Casino in New Jersey that caused the company to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars to its players.
This glitch has already lost them close to 1 Million dollars in cash prizes and the loss is going to continue to increase until when their new customer agreement takes effect.
What Exactly Happened?
Thomas Hummel, an experienced Casino player who was one of the first players to discover the loophole explains:
“888 new promotional campaign for new customers in New Jersey was supposed to give $50 of additional free credits to all new customers that deposited at least $10 to their account. Unfortunately for them, they had a wording error in the agreement so each new customer can get free $500 bonus.
As a result, people are using the free credits and hitting jackpots that are costing 888 heavily. What is making matters even worse for the company is that there is no way for them to fix it due to the strict gambling laws in New Jersey which require Casino companies to notify at least 7 days in advance before changing their terms and conditions. So getting these bonuses for free is completely legal.”
Thousands of Winners
One company’s mistake can be incredibly profitable for everyone else. One lucky woman, 26-year-old, registered with 888 and claimed the free welcome bonus and after making her first $35 deposit for playing, she won over $10,000.
888 CEO in New Jersey, Stuart Rogers was fired immediately after the incident and the new manager Phillip Halstead has a lot of fixing to do. Halstead responded to our inquiry via email, “This has been a very unfortunate and costly mistake for the company but we have to learn from it and move on. This market is very important to us and we are here to stay even after this costly error for the company.”
Here is how people from New Jersey are claiming their free money:
1. They sign up on the 888 page
2. They will make a small deposit of at least $10 and then use the free credits they receive to win money without the risk of losing and completely legally
