Speculation has been afoot for a while regarding who exactly is Digimedia Limited. Is it the Moshal brothers, who are also perporterd to have a controlling share in Micrograming. As most should know by now, Microgaming supplied start-up capital for eCOGRA. And the CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, held a non-excective seat on the board at eCOGRA. And, eCOGRA audit all Microgaming online casino games, poker rooms etc etc. Not forgetting, eCOGRA “Play it Safe” acceditation seal. Which is absolutely worthless. eCOGRA recants its own integrity statement on their “Play it Safe” seals.
The Digimedia Limited website, clearly needs someone to update their news ticker. It currently displays the following online casinos, poker rooms and bingo properties which all use Microgaming software and are now using the Digimedia Malta Gaming License (LGA/CL1/542/2008 and LGA/CL3/542/2008 were both issued on 16 June 2010):
- Platinum Play
- 7 Sultans
- Vegas Palms
- Giggle Bingo
- Back2School Bingo
- Poker Time
- EuroPalace Casino – associated to Digimedia sometime in 2011. Only recently (2014) added to stable of Fortune Affiliates
Previously – Fortune Lounge Group
Euro Palace – White Label: Previously owned by founder/CEO of EuroPartners
However this list has grown cosiderably over the last few months. The following casinos are also now operated by Digimedia Limited:
- Red Flush Casino
- Major Tom Casino
- Casino lavida
- Wild Jack Casino
- All Slots Casino
- All Jackpots Casino
- First Web Casino
- Jackpot Factory VIP Lounge
- Jackpot City Casino
- Gaming Club Casino
- Lucky Nugget Casino
- King Neptunes Casino
- Cool Hand Poker
- River Belle Casino
- Casino Epoca
Previously Red Flush Group
Previously Jackpot Factory Group
Previously Carmen Media/Belle Rock Entertainment
Where this get really interesting and has spured many casino affiliates and players alike into speculation, is both the previous casino groups and Digimedia have remained extremely closed lipped about these changes. I personal asked my affiliate manager at Fortune Affiliates back in 2011, why two companies who are supposed to be non-related, would be sharing hosting servers and IP blocks? Least to say, I got the usual talk to the hand response!
Now, more than three (3) years later, everyone is being fed the line (errr bullshit), it saves on gaming licensing fees.
The big issues here, isn’t about who owns what. It’s about casino affiliates and casino players being led up the garden path for years. If all these online casino groups have been owned by the Moshal Brothers and not seperate owners as everyone has been led to believe, what else have affiliates, players and the entire online gaming industry been lied to about?
Obviously this opens up a huge can of worms. Not withstanding all these casinos are powered by Microgaming. And reiterating, eCOGRA was founded on start-up funds from Microgaming and eCOGRA to this day audits all microgaming casino games. If all of these entities have essentially been in the control of one casino group operator, then its riff with conflicts of interest.
