Officials are warning people to remain vigilant over fake emails offering free spins at online casinos.

Action Fraud, the UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime, has received 2,400 reports in two weeks relating to fake emails purporting to be from online casino companies offering ‘free spins’.

The links in the emails lead to phishing websites that are designed to steal personal and financial information.

A spokesperson for Action Fraud said: “If you have doubts about a message, contact the organisation directly.

“Don’t use the numbers or address in the message – use the details from their official website.

“Your bank or any other official source will never ask you to supply personal information via email.”
