Screw Ball - Notice of recent deposit in your account.
One of the worst things about the 'net and online poker is people are always pitching me. I mean, I'm pitching other people too but I don't lie to them.
In scoping around looking for things to write about I happened to the hoaky "Amazing Gambling Systems" (AGS)web site. I'm not linking to them so don't bother looking.
I got an e-mail from AGS entitled "Screw Ball - Notice of recent deposit in your account".
The body says "This email is to notify you that $200 is waiting for you now. Get up to $200 FREE with your first purchase. That's right, a $200 New Player Bonus!"
So it's just a 1st deposit bonus and not a very exciting one at that. I guess why they felt the need to lie in the e-mail subject.
I guess what bugs me is it's such a bad lie. How can they make a deposit in an account that doesn't exist yet?
You know what's worse? One of the sites Web Casino World links to is Golden Palace Poker (GPP).
If you go directly to the GPP site and check their promotions page it says there's a 300% match bonus on an initial deposit of $25 to $100 using NETeller, myCitadel, or FirePay.
I don't imagine too many people will get sucked in by Web Casino World but anyone who does deserves it.
P.S. Looking around the GPP ads I see they're heavily into responsible gambling and supporting some good environmental and social causes. Good on them.
