    Dang son, these fake games look pretty bang on. Don't think I'd be able to tell the difference.

    How did you spot them?

    Our standard practice is when ever we list XWY casino on our site to make sure to check if the games are legit or not. We do this by checking their source ie where the games are hosted. We also look for other tells ( fake games cannot run progressive JPs , design issues etc ). This is a must and what we consider as part of our due diligence reviewing process.

    We also get requests from our members and fellow affiliates ( like in Pravda's case ) to check the games ( usually casinos we didnt list or review yet or dont plan on listing ) .

    Ah OK. I get using the server to ID if the games are real or not, just wasn't sure what was prompting you to check with these specific ones.

    That makes sense - cheers.

    It actually started few years back, after receiving couple player complaints in regards to games looking/behaving oddly.

    It is when we decided to make it a mandatory procedure to inspect games source when doing reviews.

    The weird thing is that one of those ones you screenshotted is not even faked, it just belongs to another casino. eg the Net Ent game is being served from redbet-static.casinomodule.com which is Redbet's legitimate NetEnt subdomain via the supermegaslot domain. They must switch to a pirated version when people login and play for real money.
