Eye On Gambling owner and wife dead

EOG owner Ken Weitzner and wife reported dead

Mystery continues to surround officially unconfirmed reports that surfaced on Saturday that Eye On Gambling.com portal owner and sports betting industry personality Ken Weitzner and his wife Jacqueline had been found dead at their Chesapeake home.

Surprisingly, local police and the media did not seem aware of the report when approached, however a staff tribute appeared on EOG.com on Sunday, reinforcing posts on the site forum by the Weitzner's son, which indicated that no foul play was suspected. The 7 page, 222 post thread at EOG suggests confusion, sadness and incredulity among EOG forum regulars.

The staff tribute notes that Weitzner - universally known by his nickname "The Shrink" - and his wife had died on either late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

"At this time, the details of their death have not been officially made public and when or if the family so chooses they can release these details when they are ready," the obituary notes before going on to give a moving farewell and tribute:

"Ken's influence and presence in the offshore gambling world will not be forgotten. Ken is well known throughout the industry for his formation of the The Prescription in 1997, which he later sold in 2002. However, he remained on staff until 2005. In 2005, he founded Eye on Gambling and up until his death ran the day-to-day operations of the site.

"On a personal level, Ken was known for his shrewd, innovative business ability, his generosity, his humor, and his willingness to help others. His infectious personality will be a lasting memory for those he left behind. His love for his family and friends, Old Dominion, the Yankees, and the Jets was well known amongst the posters.

"He had a kind and caring nature that many did not get the privilege to witness. His passion and drive for the industry and life led him to have many people who dearly cared about him as well as those that did not like him at all.

"For those of you that attended the first EOG Blast, you had the pleasure to meet Jackie. She was a very gracious and considerate woman. She had a wonderful smile that made everyone feel important and welcome. She was the strong will in the family and family was extremely important to her. She adored her sons and grandchildren.

"The void left by these two wonderful people never will be completely filled both in the offshore gambling world and in the lives of family and friends.

"The staff here at Eye on Gambling extends our deepest condolences to Ken and Jackie's two sons, their wives, five grandchildren, his mother, sister and nephew, Lenny, immediate family, and dear friends."

The Weitzners will be honoured at a funeral scheduled for Tuesday April 13th.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago.  We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently  Regards Jason   thank you jason. yes  i know why i was  denied- as i said  i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and  then i was  confused  when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible  that is all- you explained me  that te $40 was for active players  and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear  for me now- just  a mistake- thank you fo r  your intervention-I am  not an  enough active  player so  i am no depositor- please i sent my documents  and i did no get a confirmaton about the  account  verification- can  you make something   for that please ? Thank you very much  for your help Jason  "

    "Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.  "
