Hi guys,

So I signed up to 32Red and stupidly accepted the bonus of £32 for every £10 deposited (Up to £50).

I spent the next 3 days grinding it in roulette and slots to complete the wagering. I completed the wagering and got to £2k.

I requested a withdrawal yesterday but I just checked the t@c's and they have a max bet of £6.25

A lot of my bets were above £6.25 :(

I spoke to live chat and they said my withdrawal will be processed this afternoon, I really need this money :(

What's gonna happen?

Thanks

Depends on how many bets you did over the max bet rule. And almost every bonus online has a restriction like this. They are well within there rights to withhold all winnings as it is clearly stated in the terms and conditions. And there would be nothing you could do about it. The golden rule if taking a bonus is ALWAYS READ THE T&C - otherwise you will face issues like this time and time again.

32red are proper stand up so never try to screw player out of legit winnings but on this one who knows. Maybe contact the rep here Mark, he is a good guy who can look at this for you maybe.

Good luck with it though. :thumbsup:

I'd imagine that casinos are a tad more stringent with new players using signup bonuses, as opposed to a regular player who has made a mistake by betting overlimit.

Roulette is notoriously slow to wager through so unless you were doing outrageous bets they may find a compromise. By the same token, new player bonus abuse i something casinos have to be wary of, hence the $6.25 limit.

I'm sure this will be dealt with fairly as 32Red are a trustworthy outfit :cool:

Some people don't want to be reading pages and pages of terms and conditions it's suppose to be a leisure activity after all not a lesson in casino law, if it's not permitted to play over $6.25 then it shouldn't allow you to stake any higher (even a warning message pop up!). I get fed up with seeing certain people get up casino's backside and defend everything they do, we all know why they allow you play over the amount so they can have a great opportunity to hold and cancel winnings.

And in regards to Mark the rep I've hardly seen him respond to these threads and ignores his private messages.

Then you do so at your own risk! Not reading the t&cs because a person cant be bothered is not advisable especially if taking a bonus. I dont think anyone is defending a casino here, just stating fact. The OP broke the casinos t&cs and its within the casinos right not to pay out if they so wish. Claiming ignorance is no defense. And I would say the legit top casinos here never need to rely on such tactics as hoping to trip a player up. Mark is a really a top rep and does a great job here ... I would be surprised if he ignored pms unless he is away or off.

Taking a bonus without reading the terms is folly and no point coming here moaning after the event if a person finds they are denied a cashout cause they didnt take a few mins to read through whats allowed and whats not.

Well they need to make Terms and Conditions shorter that way more people would read them. But hey if you read the terms and conditions in every aspect of your life including every purchase you make or the services you use, then good for you, obviously you have a lot of time on your hands. But I get once again you are 100% defending websites, I put a decent suggestion together like limiting stakes or providing a warning message which really is pretty much common sense in this case, which you have instantly dismissed against pages of terms and conditions instead. Anyway one day the casino's will do you over like they do with many thousands of people each year, only this way you might learn not to defend them so much when they hit you personally.

Well then dont play online and go to a B&M if you cant be arsed to read the the rules. This isnt a daycare where your milk is poured into your cheerios.

And in legit casinos, they have a small section of bonus rules that are no where near 2 pages long.

And just to add, Mark is a wonderful rep. Sorry he hasnt responded to you.

As to if I have allot of time on my hands or not is not relivant. Each makes there own choice and I choose always to read the t&cs when it comes playing at a casino. And yes I will defend a casino when I feel it is needed and when not I will speak my mind.

Max bet protection is in place at some casinos such as VS ... but they dont have a bonus structure like 32red so its a mute point in this instance. And due to historic bonus abuse by players, casinos over the years have had no choice but to tighten the reigns when it comes to bonus play. Thats a known fact and has been for some time. The advise you are trying to give out and suggesting not to read the T&Cs is foolish to say the least. But your choice - play without taking a few minutes to read the T&Cs and you do run the risk of falling foul of the casinos own rules.

I have never spent more than 5 minutes reading through terms for a bonus at an accredited site as they are now usually on one page , clearly written and well formatted. As is the case with 32red :D

Just like in your other thread I agree that casinos ought to be more progressive and receptive to change. I have brought up how far behind the industry is in regards to customer care, and user rights when compared to the likes of Amazon, Sky or whoever myself.

One thing you'll realize soon enough is that we are all playing to their rules and often rely on the casinos' discretion. This is why many are annoyed and angered at their constant updating of Terms, because looking out for pitfalls is hard enough once, but once a fortnight is tiresome and feels like they've been implemented to diddle the player.

Warning messages, auto-limits etc, all very easy to do, but they don't listen to feedback as much as we'd like or are extremely slow to make adjustments. So it's not a case of defending any casino as such, just knowing which casinos at least make some attempt at customer relations :oops:

Just to add a little bit of info to this thread for the OP, except for the welcome bonus there are NO max bets with bonus money which I personally think is bloody brilliant!

I found this out when accidentally putting immortal romance on coin value 5p and spinning £15 a few times before I noticed, went to the customer support to be pleasantly surprised that there is no max bet when using a bonus. Tbh I cant think of another casino with this rule

:thumbsup:

Thanks for your input guys.

Update - They converted the £2k into bonus funds which need to be wagered 40x (£80,000), and it still has the £6.25 max bet restriction :(

Pretty much impossible to wager it especially with the max bet restriction still in place.

So they don't only use the max bet restriction on the welcome bonus!

Will be closing my account with 32red once my 2k is gone :(

While it's no easy feat to wager 80K, it's not impossible from a 2K start. It's 40x wagering, which is in line with many casinos offers.

There are a lot of casinos that would void you win entirely, perhaps even confiscating your initial deposit, although many reputuable one would at least return your initial deposit to your account.

That 32Red applies a penalty instead of voiding the win entirely is rather fair IMO. I had it happen to me a number of years ago, and at that time it was 100x penalty on your winnings.

They are one of the best casinos out there, and offer frequent and fair bonuses. I wouldn't be too quick to throw them under the bus for what is YOUR mistake.

If what you really enjoy most is roulette and not slots, you are probably best off playing without bonuses as when it is allowed, the percentage counting towards wagering is quite low. You should look instead for a casino that offers some good loyalty program for play or cashback scheme.

I think its fairly reasonable, I know it may not seem like it because of the wagering, but at a lot of other places you wouldn't have got that second chance.

Bonus terms are one of the better things 32Red still has going for it, once you are passed the welcome bonus.

Pretty much impossible to wager it especially with the max bet restriction still in place.

Yes and no, lady luck could be smiling upon you. (Load up some high variance games and go for it, or play some low/medium and play for a couple days at the max bet allowed). Most players are amazed they can deposit $50 and wager over 10k.

So they don't only use the max bet restriction on the welcome bonus!

You took the welcome bonus didn't you? So those T&C would still be in place.

Did you play on the download client? 32Red has the option to limit the bet within the software as its a fixed size (at least on Viper). They have chosen not to do so.
There is a thread from several years ago where Pat explained why they wouldn't do it. Was something about that it may deter some customers seeing the max bet being so low and that they wouldn't impose any penalties on those that broke the rule in good faith.

It was an awful decision back then and still is.

You are stil on the welcome bonus so the max bet rule still applies. Be grateful that 32 Red are decent enough not to confiscate the funds that you shouldnt realy have because YOU didnt stick to the very clear rules. They are a very decent casino. With top notch support . They bend over backwards to help people like yourself who still moan !

SO try and beat the wagering and be happy !

No wonder casinos can do basically what they want when members think the OP should be grateful etc. 32Red has the option (and have had for years) to prevent this from happening but they chose not to because their profit margin would be lower.

Disgraceful and the reason why I stopped playing there.

Simple

Read the T&Cs or dont take the bonus.

remember, you have to be over 18 to bet.

Nice attitude and shows why the gambling industry is crooked.

A casino has the ability to avoid situations like this but refuses to do so because of greed. It was quite clear from their reply that they didn't expect all of their players to read all the rules.

People defending casinos and saying they should be allowed to create win-win situations for themselves is fair?

You guys are ridiculous. Even the most reputable casinos hide their dodgy terms and conditions within blocks of text.

Why don't they update their front page banners with: MAX BET £6.25. ???

Telling people to read the terms and conditions is stupid when most casinos have: General terms and conditions page, Bonus terms and conditions page, specific bonus promotion terms and conditions page, and to add to the insult, some have an extra "excluded games page".

Everything is done on purpose. You can tell people to play without a bonus as much as you want, but these promotions are done on purpose to attract players. But as soon as customers join, they just become victims.

Next you are going to tell me that the casino that stole over £2 million jackpot winnings because off rogue terms and conditions are well within their right too.

The line between reputable and rogue casinos is ridiculously thin with terms like that.

Nice doom and gloom post.

The only people who are ridiculous are the ones that sign up with a bonus and think the casino are giving them 100% match with no terms. In what world does a business just give you $500 and say have a great time, no worries!

If any reputable casino have dodgy terms or even hidden for that matter, alot of the members here will point it out and suggest it be fixed. So no we dont just blindly defend casinos. I know many reputable casinos that have told me right in chat or in my welcome email "please read the terms" "terms and conditions apply" so I find your post incredibly misleading
