The world’s biggest casino conglomerate, Las Vegas Caesar’s, was forced to pay tens of thousands of pounds to players of online bingo games in United Kingdom who discovered an elementary math mistake on the online bingo games website.
Las Vegas Caesars, which operates British online bingo real money website for U.K. bingo players, (sorry Americans, but your government doesn’t allow you to play), made a costly mistake with their sign up bonuses which was immediately exploited by sharp eyed bingo bonus hunters.
According to online gambling news in United Kingdom, Caesars offered its new customers a sign up deposit bonus of 200% up to £400 – so with an initial deposit of £100, the bingo player will automatically get £300 to play with.
Normally, promotions such as this are constructed to ensure that the casino will not come out on the losing side by making the new player place a certain number of wagers prior to being able to withdraw the monies.
Caesar’s bingo however made the mistake in their online bingo promotion by allowing online bingo players from England to bet only the bonus money without touching the initial deposit.
One family allegedly made £3,000 from the mistake and a family friend can now pay for his upcoming wedding with the winnings from online bingo.
Caesar’s replied to media inquiries that “if bingo players are taking advantage of something that is our error they will get to keep the advantage. If there’s fraud then there’s an issue.”
