888 encounters Argentinian hassles

The Gibraltar-based 888.com-Cassava Enterprises online gambling group this week faces similar Argentinian legal problems to those already experienced by international firms Bwin and Victor Chandler in the South American country. The problem is the city of Buenos Aires, where the head of Attorney Office Number 4, Luis Duacastella Arbizu, is claiming infringment of anti-gambling laws 116 through 118 of the municipal Contraventional Code.

Reporting on the issue, the local news service Yogonet says that Arbizu has the backing of a municipal court ruling in requiring Cassava to block residents of Buenos Aires from its servers. Whether such a city ban can be enforced internationally is a matter of legal debate, but Arbizu has pressed forward with his banning initiative on websites 888.com and 888.com.ar anyway.

Arbizu has also ensured the local publication of the court's ruling in the media as well as in the official bulletin of CABA, giving the gambling company a 48-hour deadline.

Provincial regulators are empowered to grant individual licences in specific regions falling under their authority, which has enabled the Bwin and Victor Chandler groups to acquire licenses in Misiones province, but apparently not the populous capital city of Buenos Aires, where the companies have encountered previous legal problems leading to court actions and appeals last year that are still ongoing.

I read your post on the FREEBIE rules. I think I get what you're saying. You made 3 consecutive deposits and then went on to win a FREEBIE. But now your 3 deposits gets reset. Even if you made 10 consecutive deposits and go on to unlock a FREEBIE. You will not be allowed another FREEBIE promotion before you make another deposit. You can't BANK your deposit counts.  This is very standard rules and fairly reasonable. But here's my problem:  They allow you to activate these freebies and happily grant you entry to multiple free tournaments. Although winning will merely void your balance. Everyday many non freebie qualifying accounts knowingly take part in freerolls. But the worst is making the playthrough only to find out its non-withdrawable and void. Leaving you asking: 'Why the hell did you grant it then...?' *now just to be fair its not a policy flaw unique to Casino Extreme. Its pretty much the standard play.  "
