888 Casino blocked my account while I was playing Real dealer BlackJack and I had a bet on the table. I got kicked out literally kicked out of the game and then I received the following email:

I replied to that email informing them that I had an old closed account (I asked them back in the days to close an account that I didn't want to use anymore).

And recently I wanted to play again so I created the new account "nickmontreal". I wasn't attempting to do nothing wrong or abusing a welcome bonus or anything.

I am still waiting to get an answer.. But this is very barbaric from them, to kick me out of a real dealer blackjack game. Instead of calling me directly and try to fix things. As you can see in the email they sent me, there is not even a phone number. I'm still waiting to get an email from them. I have a balance of 1000$ I am very concerned about this situation.

I'd like to add, this is very unprofessional from 888casino, they are not respectful toward the players at all.

For example that sentence from the email:
"If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact us."

Of course I want to discuss this matter, I have a balance of 1000$. They are not even talking about what's happening with my money, all it say in the email is that my account has been blocked.

Can someone help me?

Did anyone notice the casino said "accountS"? Sounds like more than one.

Nick, did you claim any signup bonus on this new account?

I did not claim any signup bonus. I'm still waiting for a reply from them btw. (operations@cassava.net and Rachel)


Couple of months ago I asked them to close my account because I didn't want to play anymore.

I recently changed my mind and I wanted to play, so.. since my other account was close it was logic to just re-create a new one.

hahaha! I know right


UPDATE: I just received a new email from 888casino (feedback@mailer.888casino.com).

It look like they are returning my balance $ to me (thanks God!). But they didn't reply to me at all. I assume they don't want me to play anymore :( ..

Ok, we can consider my situation as resolved, and may I add that I am extremely pleased to see that they are replying to me and now I am in discussion with them.

They have a very good support.

Thank you 888 and Rachel for helping me.


The problem is .. when I closed my first account, I did mention that I was maybe having a little gambling problem.. (But the main reason was really that I was upset about a technical issue that I was experiencing while playing and I was tipsy when I wrote to them)

I was experiencing a technical bug that when I clicked on "hit" to get a card, it wasn't working sometime.

Anyway.. I explained to them that my financial situation changed recently and I wanted to play again.. plus I was not experiencing this technical issue anymore while playing.

This is almost certain to be whaty caused this issue. As far as they were concerned, you had lapsed and opened a new account. They froze this account as soon as they found it. Industry guidelines suggest a MINIMUM of 6 months exclusion when a player closes their account for a reason that may indicate a gambling problem. Many argue this does not go far enough, and that closures due to gambling problems should last much longer, even to the point of being permanent. Accounts should not be reopened on request either, but after a thorough assessment of the circumstances of the player then and now.

They won't want you to play because they are not convinced 2 months is enough to get to grips with a gambling problem. They should, if they haven't already, make it clear you are NOT to create further accounts at any related casino in order to sneak back in. They may not be so forgiving the next time, and will probably void all your bets.
