CASINO-MATRON KEEPS 'EM GUESSING
An unexpected takeover on a suspicious date….
The notorious advent of April had members of the Casinomeister online gambling information portal on the hop this week.
When they clicked through to the popular website, owned by occasional prankster Bryan Bailey, they found a brand new lurid purple corporate identity "Casino.Matron" and the information: "I am woman – I am proud – I am in charge now."
The mission of the "new" owners was listed as "No more macho Casinomeister chauvinistic subjection. No more sexist robot – he was fired ( a reference to the webmaster's robotic alter-ego Vortran).
In previous years Bailey has amused and at times alarmed the unwary with April pranks such as pasting official-looking warnings across his website notifying online gamblers that they may be under investigation by (fake) US authorities.
