Latestcasinobonuses.com (LCB) reported on fake Yggdrasil and Pragmatic Play slots found at Hera Casino website.
“Hera Casino is one of those sites that feels wrong from the get go. Even at first glance, you can’t shake off a gut feeling telling you something is not right here. We came to know about the site through several forum topics, in which players related their, mostly negative, experiences about this operator. Several players noticed Hera’s slots behaving strangely at various stages throughout the gameplay, showing odd winning patterns, or other suspicious bugs. This is always a red flag for us, since we have seen enough fake software to know that disregarding such occurrences is never a good idea. After investigating the platform, we can confirm your hunch – the slots do not function correctly because they are pirated versions of the original games.” – LCB commented.
This is the first time these two studios were encountered being targeted by pirates and rogue groups.
“In addition to unlicensed software, Hera has a dubious layout, very few games, and incomplete terms and conditions. They are also unable to provide evidence for the UK license they claim to hold.” – LCB added.
Latestcasinobonuses.com inspected the source code of Dragon Kingdom from Pragmatic Play and they found out that the iframe source link displays a blank space, but hovering cursor over it shows the slot is hosted on the casino’s domain, which original games never are. This proved the game is pirated, but also indicates the site is aware of this fact and attempts to mask the source link to appear genuine.
Furthermore, LCB discovered other discrepancies: chat and odd buttons embedded into the game, missing ”CLOSE”button from the upper right corner of the screen, solid black instead of semi-transparent background in the pay-table section, and a missing ”X” button used to exit the pay-table. Aside from these, the slots are near-perfect copies of the original products.

“We are happy most of our members were smart enough to either stay away from the site, or take a closer look by using some of their no deposit offers. When that nagging bad feeling won’t go away, it’s best to follow your gut and find some other site to trust with your money. Hera Casino is not one of those sites, and should be avoided at all times.” – team Latestcasinobonuses.com said.
