    Another member of that forum said even if a customer spends $2 (or maybe it was two euros) they want to know.

    Over the years, most of my tenants have paid me in cash, or made a deposit of cash themselves into my bank account. I'm too small a landlord to set up direct deposit options for me.

    A close personal friend and online gambler is a waitress. She often will come home and make a deposit based on her night's tips to unwind at 3 am.
    Also it's not only casinos that will do this. It's companies all over Europe.

    I do get your concerns, but in some ways I still think it's humans who works at casinos, and they are allowed to make up their own minds about customers.
    What is scary for them is if you should be convicted for money laundring later and they haven't done a proper check, then they have to pay for it too.

    Maybe some rep could be asked to post what they think, or you could ask someone in private. This thread was about Betsson so maybe we could ask him.

    Perhaps the plot thickens

    I Agree , the casinos are going to find this just as much a headache as us players as it would more than likely detour fresh player singups, looks to me to be a kind of assault on the industry , maybe slowing it's growth down for whatever reason
    But that's my conspiracy theory thinking maybe getting carried away
    If this intrusive
    KYC
    procedure picks up momentum then one is certain Bitcoin casinos will certainly capitalize over this issue

    Seriously, all merchants? Are they trying to sink the EU? Purchasing accommodation for a trip can easily exceed that. Want a new computer? A camping trailer? Time for new appliances? Looking for that ring to finally pop the question?

    I actually have less problem providing it to casinos that face some regulation rather than all and sundry merchants. Look at the data breaches even at major retailers over the past few years.

    So let's say I wholesale auto parts. Do I simply refuse to sell if I suspect criminal activity? Or do I report it somewhere?
    Free advice is worth what you paid for it.

    No, not all merchants. Just some who deals with larger sums. Cars, banks, casinos etc. But it will not affect everyone.

    I did find this and I'm trying to get some clearer answers now.
    CDD by casinos where customers wish to place a stake or collect winnings of at least €2,000

    You can read about it all over the net. I just want to know if all customers will be checked when they make a bet or cashout of that amount, or if it's just new customers? Can casinos judge by themselves if they are suspecting something, or are they forced to check everyone?

    Betsson seems to have started a bit early.

    "solved"

    "Thank you for your patience while we were investigating.

    I am glad to confirm that your recent withdrawal of $*** has been approved today in the morning. The money is on it way to your account. I apologise that the verification process has taken longer than you expected.

    At the same time our Security Team has decided to permanently close your account therefore you won't be able to continue playing at Betsson."
