West Virginia Online Gambling Director Fired After a $1 Million Mistake
If you live in West Virginia and want to earn some extra money easily, then this may be the most exciting article you’ll ever read.
Trusted casino site Fanduel, has made a costly mistake after launching their online Casino in West Virginia that caused the company to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars to its players.
This glitch has already lost them close to $1 million in free deposits and cash prizes and the loss is going to continue to increase until 5 March 2021 when their new customer agreement takes effect.
What Exactly Happened?
Michael McGee, an experienced Casino player from West Virginia who was one of the first players to discover the loophole explains:
“The Fanduel new promotional campaign for new customers in West Virginia was supposed to give $10,000 in prizes of additional free credits to all new customers that signed through their account. Unfortunately for them, they had a wording error in the agreement so each new customer gets daily up to $10K in guaranteed prizes of free credit based on the registration instead on their first deposit.
As a result, people are signed up and hitting jackpots that are costing the online casino 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 West Virginia 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 Karen Hammond from Charleston, registered with Fanduel and claimed the free welcome bonus and after making her first $30 deposit for playing, she won the Slot Jackpot of $722,647. “I used to dread waking up each morning and going to a job that I hate, all to just be able to cover my rent and bills, now I have so much freedom.”
Fanduel Director, Stuart Rogers was fired immediately after the incident and the new manager Philip 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. The American market is very important to us and we are here to stay even after this costly error for the company.”
Here is how people in West Virginia are claiming their free money:
1. They sign up at Fanduel then use the free credit they receive to win money without a risk of losing and completely legally
As of 5 March 2021, the free bonus loophole is still available
