Online Casino News - Past Online Casino Scandals: Hampton Casino

Past Online Casino Scandals: Hampton Casino

by Mira Patel, News Staff Writer

October 24 2007

Perhaps you’ve heard horror stories about unethical online casinos, which promise big jackpots and then fail to actually pay their so-called “winners.” Strict regulation of online gambling has made it so that scandals like this are virtually non-existent, but it’s disingenuous to say that it never happens. In 2003, one online casino was forced out of business due to accusations of fraud, making worldwide headlines and casting a pall over the whole internet casino industry for some time.

Hampton Online Casino refused to pay out one-point-three million dollars in winnings to an anonymous player, claiming that the online gambling fan had resorted to an elaborate “’bot,” or robot, to rig the game and force the jackpot. The player vehemently denied the accusations, and sued for their winnings. The internet casino was forced to pay out, but the fallout from the incident was already too big to contain. Manager Rich Katz was ultimately compelled to quit his post at Hampton, and the online casino’s software provider, Real Time Gaming, publicly condemned the site’s management. Hampton never regained its former popularity, and was eventually bought out. Nowadays, the casino is called King Solomon’s.

Naturally, the best way to keep an online casino horror story like this from happening to you is to exercise good judgment when taking part in online gambling. There are many sites on the internet that can recommend the best online casinos for your money, and Online Casino Suite is proud to be among them. Millions of folks just like you have fun at internet casinos, and some win big. The key thing is to use your discretion in sorting the real deals from the scamsters.
