While we don’t like to have to report news like this, somebody’s got to; and it’s important for us that our members are kept in the loop, especially when it comes to online casinos to avoid. Unfortunately, another site has been added to that list as we’ve been informed of the existence of pirated games at Hera Casino discovered by LCB.
The news was first discovered after coming across several forum topics, in which the site’s members reflected on their negative experiences. Many were consistent in their complaints of slots acting strangely, including odd winning patterns and other apparent malfunctions. When games don’t function the way they should, it raises a major RED FLAG, and indicates the likelihood of fake games. Sure enough, after careful investigation, it was discovered that the casino was operating counterfeit games from both Yggdrasil and Pragmatic Play. While it’s common to see pirated games from leading brands like NetEnt or Microgaming, it’s far less common to see rogue groups targeting brands like these two. In fact, this is the first case we’ve ever come across.
Its not just the unlicensed games that should concern players. There are several other reasons users should think twice before registering an account with Hera. Their layout is questionable, at best, with a very small selection of games to choose from, and missing information from their terms and conditions. Also, while the site claims to be licensed by the UK, they have yet to provide any proof, leaving us to wonder whether that’s actually true.
Overall, the site is poorly designed and appears unfinished. Additionally, we find it suspicious that a point was made to bold areas of the text concerning their rights to forfeit/withhold/void bonus winnings, terminate accounts, and other negative actions.
We advise players to avoid this casino at all costs.
