Norwegian Online Casino CEO Fired After a 7 Million NOK Mistake


By Diane Jacobs , April 20th 2017

If you live in Norway and want to earn some extra money easily, then this may be the most exciting article you’ll ever read.

Trusted online casino operator Play Club Inc. (NASDAQ: PLCLB) has made a costly mistake after launching their online casino in Norway that caused the company to lose millions Norwegian kroner to its players.

A technical glitch has already lost them close to 6 million NOK in free spins and cash prizes and the loss is going to continue to increase until 27th April when their new customer agreement takes effect.

What Exactly Happened?

Matteus Berggren, an experienced casino player from Stavanger who was on of the first player to discover the loophole explains,

“Play Club’ new promotional campaign for new customers in Norway was supposed to give up to 2000 kr of additional free credits to all new customers that deposited at least 2000 kr to their account. Unfortunately for them, they had a wording error in the agreement so each new customer can get 2000 kr of free credits.

As a result, people are using the free credit and hitting jackpots that is costing Play Club Norway heavily. What is making matters even worse for the company is that there is no way for them to fix it due to the strict gambling laws in Norway which require casino companies to notify at least 7 days in advance before changing their terms and conditions. It’s a completely legal method until April 26th1.
Thousands of Winners

One company’s mistake can be incredibly profitable for everyone else. One lucky woman, 26-year-old Frida Bø from Bergen, registered with Play Club Norway and claimed the 2000 NOK free credits and after using just 250 NOK for spins she won the progressive jackpot of 750,000 NOK.
“I used to dread waking up each morning and going to a job that I hate, all to just be able to cover my rent and bills, now I have so much freedom.”

Play Club’s CEO in Norway, Peter Nyholm was fired immediately after the incident and the new manager Benjamin Thomassen has a lot of fixing to do. Thomassen responded to our enquiry via email,
“This has been a very unfortunate and costly mistake for the company but we have to learn from it and move on. Norwegian market is very important to us and we are here to stay even after this costly error for the company.”

Here is how Norwegians are claiming their free money:

1. They sign up on the Play Club Norway campaign page

2. They will make a small deposit of at least 100 NOK and then use the free credits they receive to win prizes and jackpots without a risk of losing – completely legally
