04 Apr Anna Casino Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n GO Curaçao, Malta Player said the casino was withholding €5000, claimed they’d been falsely accused of having multiple accounts. y Turned out there was good reason to suspect the player and the phantom “other” account. In the end we supported the casino’s decision against the player. closed Private complaint
04 Apr Park Lane Amaya, Betsoft, etc. Curaçao Player claimed to have won €24000 over several days but the entire amount was confiscated because of “a bug in the system”.

04 Apr Bet365 Playtech, Aristocrat Gibraltar, UKGC Player reported that £29000+ had been confiscated after an extended disagreement over payment methods. n Casino people told us that they were “not player facing” and would not discuss player complaints.

6 Apr Aladdin’s Gold RTG Kahnawake Player expected an $1100 WD but only received $100: casino had limited the WD to a previous free chip.

Casino offered the player a little something to ease the pain which the player accepted and played out. closed Private complaint
7 Apr Planet 7 Casino RTG Costa Rica Player claimed he’d won $11000 and then was promptly locked out of his account. ? Turned out the player had multiple accounts at Casinomeister and had done non-Accred PABs before. When confronted with this he tried to blag his way through it. Player, meet curb. closed Private complaint
10 Apr Casumo NetEnt, Microgaming, etc. Malta, UKGC Player reported having happily followed an email advert to the casino, played and lost. Then they “remembered” that they’d already self-excluded at the casino, wanted their money back. y Turned out the player had almost certainly changed enough info on the second registration to fly under the casino’s radar. Sorry dude, it sounds all too deliberate to us. closed Private complaint
15 Apr Casino Cruise NetEnt, Microgaming, etc. Malta, UKGC The player had won and wanted to WD €3500 but the casino had stopped payment on the grounds of KYC issues. n The casino had taken care of things and the player was paid in full. resolved Private complaint

19 Apr Gossip Slots BetSoft Curaçao Player claimed they’d been playing slots, had hit a bonus round, but the game had glitched out and reduced their balance. Same thing had apparently happened again. Y The player had originally complained to the casino about the glitch and was compensated. Then they’d falsely claimed the same game had glitched a 2nd time and paid out improperly. Turned out it was the same incident just rewarmed for another try at payment. closed Public Complaint
19 Apr Marsbet NetEnt, Microgaming, etc. Curaçao An affiliate issue where there was €1800 owed but the account was locked without notice. n Casino people said they’d look into it but nothing came of it.
