Only one of the six reviewers who work regularly for this site holds an account with the Fortune Lounge group. They report positive experiences.
In the last year the Fortune Lounge group has aggressively expanded and taken over a substantial proportion of the the Microgaming only casino providers still on the market, including the BrightShare, WagerShare, RedReturns and the ReferBack groups of casino (listed by affiliate programs).
None of the groups that make up this super group of Microgaming casino have a spotless record when it comes to the discussion of player complaint and treatment of their affiliate partners, but some of the groups have a better record than others.
At the present time it’s not clear exactly how this amalgamation of casino groups is going to function, whether the individual groups will continue to function autonomously and form their own policies regarding the discussion of player complaints or whether there will be one unified policy applied to all casinos in the group.
For the time being, while we will detail the player/affiliate issue with all groups within this amalgamation in one entry, we will continue to treat the groups individually until such time that we see evidence that they are sharing management policies.
First Web casino are part of the Jackpot Factory group of casinos.
The Jackpot Factory group have failed to respond to several player complaints.
Alongside this, they’ve recently changed the terms of their affiliate contract and retroactively enforced the new rules on all their affiliate partners. As such they’ve been rogued at Affiliate Guard Dog.
Recently the Brightshare group of casinos have decided that in cases where a player breaches bonus terms and conditions they will void the player’s deposit alongside their winnings. This is exceptionally aggressive and unethical behaviour.

The First Web comp point program offers points for every wager you place – you can see the accrual rates below. Your points can then be converted to cash at a rate of 100 = £1. This comp point program is equivalent to the standard Playtech comp point system only for the top accrual level games. For other games the First Web comp point program is substantially weaker. Alongside this –unlike most other programs – your points expire after 90 days if not redeemed. The First Web comp point program is weaker than the industry standard.
The Jackpot Factory casinos now make even accidental transgressions by players offences that can see hundreds of £/$/€ in deposits voided. Our advice would be not to bother.
