Are there computer generated names at Costa Bingo (15/07/2010)

Are there computer generated names at Costa Bingo

Costa Bingo - UK Bingo
FAIRGROUND SLOTS

In may I joined costa bingo and as you may know you get 24 hours in the first time depositors free room which was brill. The next day I invited my bloke to join too because I won quite abit in the room and it cost me nothing to play. He too enjoyed playing in the first time depositors 24 hour free room. Afew days after that I invited my youngest daughter to join too because this free bingo room seemed really good. But that was when we noticed the same names winning in that room as was winning when I joined days ago. We were getiing really suspicious by now as we couldn't get back into that room after 24 hours was up, so how could the same names be winning days later.

To cut a long story short in the end there was 6 of us that joined over a period of 19 days, with the same names winning on every day we were in that room. We had collected a list of 11 names that should not have been in that room. I contacted Costa Bingo about it because we were fuming about this, the 6th person that joined counted 70 wins from the players on our list that should not have been there. I gave Costa 5 names off my list. They took 2 weeks even to acknowledge me with some rubbish about player confideniality.

This was a really serious matter either computer generated names or allowing certain players to take more than 50% of the so called prize money meant for newbies. I logged in a little while ago and 2 of those names were still playing and winning on Costa. Whether the names are computer generated or they are allowing players who are not first time depositors in that room I will probably never find out.

Im finding the whole of costa bingo shady now, my brother refuses to deposit now as he played through enough to withdraw without losing his bonus money yet it still said he had to play through everything he had to not lose it. he took the risk and took it out anyway and they even took the bonus money from their daily play thing. Also their side games are the biggest scam ever, once you have any sort of win it wont give you another win at all, have played through £100 of losing spins before playing 25p a spin... Also on about 4 or 5 different slot games ive had the top paying win the first time i played then they NEVER came in again even though ive spent alot of money on the site. With the amounts ive spent, laws of average says I should of seen them once atleast

I play on Costa every day and have been quite lucky on it. I never got into the free newbie room though because I joined before they had that. But it definately does sound dodgy if the same players are winning a room that's only meant to be for newbies x x

Not acceptable that this practice is still going on on all the sites the same winners most of the time and genuine players just getting the odd wins to keep them coming back

I joined and noticed the same thing at the present time myself and a group of friends are doing our own monitoring and recording our findings with a camera.we see ghost players who never enter never leave and are nowhere to be found winning.They arent in other rooms either because we have them all covered and you cant autobuy unless you enter room first.Will post again after monitoring complete.

Well why am I not shocked to hear these stories. I am a member on lots of bingo sites and it is always the same players that win, especially the big games. I accept that I've been a mug and actully got myself in lots of debt trying to get some of the money back I have spent. It won't happen, I realise that now I just have to get my self sorted and stay away from these on-line sites. I will say this though I could never work for one of these sites even if they paid me mega bucks. All the staff must know whats going on and surely have no conscience.
