How Not to Run a Promotion
Is it me or is Dancer whining and moaning just because he didn't win anything?
If Shackleford had affirmative evidence that he (and everyone else giving the Riv early play) was getting screwed, I have to imagine he'd be talking about it. I mean, the man openly advocates going to bat for customers of online gaming houses if they can prove legitimate doubt on the fairness of a game. Unless he were pondering legal action against the Riv over the matter, I have to imagine he'd say... something... in that same spirit.
Boo hoo, Dancer experienced negative variance and couldn't game the system this time.
I 100% agree that it is him whining, but that doesn't excuse what Riviera did. If you send out a promotion, you need to actually do the promotion. At the very least the employees should have known about the promotion and that it was canceled.
Bob and Mike should have assumed the worst when they went through 3? managers that had no clue what promo they were talking about. They did this because they believed it was an advantage play. Don't assume the casino will do what you want in the end just because you think they should.
This just doesn't excuse marketing from sending out false info.
I think there is a huge difference in legal action against a game that isn't fair vs a promotion that the casino can change at any point. If Dancer thought the VP machines were not fair, I'm 100% convinced he would go to gaming to press the issue. He has faith games regulated by NGC are fair. It is harder to have the same faith in online casinos when it has been proved many times that some software has not been fair.
