4 tips to prevent casino spam

We list four tips to avoid being inundated with junk mail.

1) Two email addresses

The simplest tactic is to keep two different e-mail addresses. One is your "real" address, which you use for official correspondence and to mail with friends and family.

The other address you use when you register somewhere on the Internet, for example, a forum, a contest, or an online casino. If all goes well, you will only be bothered by junk mail at the second address. If the spam at your second address gets out of hand, then you take a new second address.

2) Have a separate address for each casino

If you play at several online casinos, you might consider creating a separate email address for each casino. For example, [email protected] for Casino A and [email protected] for Casino B.

If you then suddenly get spam mails at one of your addresses, then you know for sure who sold your address.

Legal casinos with a Dutch license will never sell your email address. If they do, they can lose their license and face a huge fine.

3) The trick with the at Gmail

Gmail has a very handy feature that allows you to create as many email addresses as you want, while all the mail just comes into one inbox.

Behind your username, you put and a word of your choice. For example, janjansen [email protected] All mail sent to this address will simply arrive in your normal inbox. Handy! Optionally, you can filter all mail to different addresses with a in it and have it go into a separate folder.

4) Never post your email in a public forum

Another important tip to stop casino spam: never post your email address in a public forum. Also, not in guest books, condolence registers, or anywhere else. If you do, you can be almost certain that your address will be picked up by robots scouring the entire Internet for addresses. Say goodbye to your tidy inbox.

What if you're already receiving casino spam?

There is one golden rule regarding spam: never respond to it.

It's best not to open the mail at all. Certainly, don't click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. If you do, the spammer knows that you still use your e-mail address and read his e-mails. There is a chance that you will receive even more spam. Answering spam is not a good idea for the same reason.

What you can do is complain to the customer service of the casino that is advertised in the email. As said, online casinos rarely send unsolicited emails themselves and are happy if you point out the spam.

The casino can use the email to find out who sent the spam and correct them.
