    Hi I am new to the forum here but not to Internet gaming...I was wondering if anyone else got fooled by the misleading current river belle mardi gras $25 promo? Here's an excerp of what their promo email stated:...... Grab MARDI GRAS GOLD:
    1. Make a SINGLE purchase of US$25 on board The 'Belle
    from 18h00 (6pm) EST, Friday, February 08, 2002,
    until 18h00 (6pm) EST, Sunday, February 10, 2002.

    You can purchase using FirePay, PayPal or your
    Credit Card!

    2. Once you have made your SINGLE purchase of US$25,
    claim your US$25 FREE, IMMEDIATELY!

    To claim your US$25, click here: ( removed this link for my own security)..............................OK so I went to paypal ON THE 8th and paid and confirmed with the belle, and they sent me an email saying ear XXXXXX(my name)

    Thank you for taking part in our Mardi Gras US$25 FREE
    Promotion.

    Your River Belle Gaming Account, XXXXXXXXXXX will be
    credited within 72 hours, once approved.

    Warm regards,

    Sebastian
    First Mate
    THE RIVER BELLE..........................................Wit hin one minute I recieved another email that statesear xxxxxxx(my name again)

    Unfortunately, you did not qualify for the promotion for
    the following reason(s):

    The promotion does not start until the Saturday, February 09, 2002 at 12 AM.

    First Mate

    THE RIVER BELLE......................
    WHERE DO THEY GET OFF WHEN THEIR OWN PROMO EMAIL SAYS THE 8TH WAS A_OK??? BEWARE! I have spent way to much money at this casino and they are going to rip me off for a measly $25 bucks? I guess they don't want my business anymore? Bad business judgement on their part in my opinion.....Thanks for the use of the forum to vent and warn future river belle users. There promos are possible fakes,, shifting dates like that!

    This doesn't make any sense. I've requested that the casino respond and clarify this email.

    This seems to be a frequent occurrence with
    many casino's. Arguing over time frames, nit
    picking over minor points, and such.

    Why do these casino's keep e-mailing out
    all these "wonderful" offers, and then
    "hassle" players who take them up on them??

    Geez.... You would think they would understand
    by now all the "problems" that are caused by
    this type of "arguing" over such insignificant
    points as this! Guess not!!

    This has to be just a mistake.
    I played this very promotion, and I deposited on the 8th after 6 PM. I got my bonus with no problem.
    Of the 50 or so places I've played, Riverbelle has been among the very best for customer service, despite their association with the questionable Proc Cyber Services for E-cash services.

    Hello again everyone. Thanks admin for trying to help. I could go as far as taking a screen shot of my paypal page and uploading it to the web to prove I paid proc cyber on the 8th, but I agree with mrracetrack, about the nitpicking. I went back again and reclicked that email link to qualify and got the same response, "I could not qualify for the free chips". Maybe it's a paypal issue, but the money did show up on my river belle account to play with which usually means to me that proccyber & the belle should know that the payment went through paypal and at what time of the evening.....oh well, life goes on, I even went back the other night and played $20 in chips just to get over it. It's not like the offer I lost out on was a lot of money. I was as surprised to have it happen to me as you are to hear me tell it on this forum....So far I haven't ever played at other casinos other than the belle, so I guess it's time to look around.
    Thanks for listening pixel

    Why does it seem that whenever a
    "problem" regarding a casino is
    posted in a forum, that the casino
    all of a sudden "corrects" this
    in a very timely fashion?

    Why can't they take care of this
    when the player requests assistance
    PRIOR to posting a public grievance?

    Food for thought??
