    Hi everyone!

    I've just finished the WR (40x) of a 8$ no deposit bonus in 888.com casino (you must apply at the poker site, but you can play casino games through the poker client). Then asked for a withdraval.

    I'll tell you how is the process going in order to help with the accreditation of the casino (or not :D).

    I think this situation is a good one to test the 'rogueness' of an operation.

    I wonder why Paf.com aren't accredited here. They have one of the cleanest operations out there, best support and community managers and best no deposit bonus (5 to 15€ WR 1x!!).

    Yes, you will probably not find a more trustable casino than Paf.com

    You know, all of their profits are distributed to charity.

    An by the way, the latest Mega Fortune winner was playing at Paf (ref. KasinoKing). She won €5-5,5 mill or something.

    For Paf.com not being accredited here has probably something to do with their lack of interest. There are many casinos who most likely would have been accredited here if they where interested, for example Betsson, Betsafe, Paf, CasinoEuro and more.

    :confused:

    Is this TRUE? I've never heard of them, so had a look and their poker looks very interesting.
    I'm always on the lookout for a better, more interesting provider of my medicine.

    Yes, that is true. I did not see financial information for 2010 on their site, but it will probably be added soon. They distributes loans and grants to non profit organizations.

    This is from their "giveaway" in 2009:


    20 million euros in Paf funds distributed to the delight of many

    Grants (in euros)
    Community work 2,226,000
    Environmental activities 500,000
    Youth activities 263,000
    Sport 1,552,000
    Cultural activities 3,740,000
    Project grants 7,604,000
    Event grants 100,000
    Other grants 1,000,000
    Total 16,985,000

    Loans (in euros)
    Loans to youth organisations 15,000
    Other loans from Paf funds 3,000,000
    Total 3,015,000

    Hiya. I used to play at this casino when i first started playing On Line, many years ago. The games were fair, and the money was in my Neteller acct quickly. I only left because at that time they had only a few table games, and did not have Sic Bo, so i left.

    This is a bit nerdy but I wanted to know what the name of the gambling site stood for. It's Penning Automat Förening or PAF. Which google translates to Slot Machine Association.

    A search on Wiki say's "The purpose of PAF is to generate funds for humanitarian and social causes on the Åland Islands." So that means all the monies go back to help the Finnish Aland Islanders, which I would say is quite a clever economic business model.

    Yes, they started putting slot machines in the Åland Islands' ferries.

    But don't go too OFF TOPIC. Someone can mix Paf and 888 (which is exactly the opposite, completely evil :D).

    hehe...Paf "gives away" €20mill yearly to charity, while 888 Holdings pays chief executive Gigi Levy about $2mill yearly :p

    But 888 is not evil of course, they just need to sharpen up :thumbsup:

    Back to the case, has the withdrawal been proceeded without problems ?

    3-5 days pending is the standard, they told me that I can reverse it anytime by asking support to do it.

    At least they're not as evil as Playtech, whose pending withdravals have a big button next to them: "REVERSE WITHDRAVAL :D"

    hehe...oki. Just remember not to cancel this withdrawal :oops:

    Generally, 3-5 days pending is unacceptable in my opinion.

    When it comes to Playtech, the pending time will depends on the casino. I use Centrebet, and my withdrawals has always been proceeded within hours. But you`re right, there is a "reverse"-button.

    OFFTOPIC: In Casino Del Rio (Playtech), when they were owned by EuroPartners, I had to wait 5 + 12 days for my 500€ cheque. At least they didn't ask for docs and it was a bonus beaten (100% match - Depoed' 70, Played Live Roulette, Live BJ and Hi-Lo with 140€, completed 8x D+B WR and came out with 500€).

    It was a torture to see that reverse button everytime I wanted to check if it was processed yet. After such a winning streak, 5 days without playing there was frustrating :p

    888: I'll try to upload docs tomorrow in order to avoid more hassles. They say they may ask for notarised documents if they want to; what I find completely unacceptable. Aren't ID, credit card copy and bills enough for a little withdraval? A notary would cost more money than the beaten bonus income! x3

    UPDATE (6/4/11): Today I've recieved an email that says that my docs have been accepted and in the cashier I can see that the status of my cashout is "Paid" (I haven't recieved any confirmation email nor money in my bank account yet).

    UPDATE (6/4/11): Ka-ching! I've recieved the money in my bank account the same day it was processed :thumbsup:

    They didn't send me any email confirming the cashout, they must be mad at me :rolleyes:

    I think the whole process was fast (for a no deposit bonus) and fair. Support live chat helped a lot too. They have my +1 for accreditation ;)
