Jackpot Secrets

From Scams Exposed

The logo for this fake news website.

Site type: Fake News

Product being advertised: Grand Mondial Casino

Bait used: Advert (Revcontent).

Pretends to be: CBC News.

"Story": Debbie Lewis, a widowed 76-year-old woman with 14 children, is living at a retirement home and finds an article about Grand Mondial, "a reputable (citation needed) Canadian gaming site offering 150 Free Spins + Welcome Bonus, guaranteed win (citation needed) for new players from Canada on signup", while browsing Facebook. She wins $1,782,390 while playing it. Apparently, "Debbie no longer wants to be a part of her children’s lives and vows to donate the money to a cause for the elderly when she passes. She doesn’t think her 14 children deserve it, and she’s felt that way for a long time." It ends with this huge pile of promotional clickbait BS: "UPDATE: Since publishing this article we received a ton of emails from our readers to thank us for mentioning Grand Mondial Casino's 150 free spins promotion. This was not our intention but it seems we made a lot of our Canadian readers rich (citation needed) by doing so and emails are still coming in every day with stories of new jackpot winners (citation needed). Readers were telling us it's almost guranteed win (citation needed) on Grand Mondial Casino. After further research of Debbie’s jackpot we decided to check out Grand Mondial Casino for ourselves. We found that Debbie was just 1 of 400 players across Canada who had won (citation needed) playing with the free spins promoted by Grand Mondial Casino. In fact, Grand Mondial Casino has already paid out (citation needed) over $4,500,000.00 in total winnings (citation needed) and will be ending the promotion soon – largely due to the publicity they got from Debbie’s story. Our finance reporter, Steve Westervelt even tried his hand at the jackpot, but only walked away with a meager $280 on a $25 wager..."

Note: This fake news story has some similarities with the Dave Rhodes Make Money Fast chain email from the early '90s (the last half-decade of mainstream Usenet use).

Note 2: To prove that anyone can make fake news, I made something similiar to this website.
