I am playing online for about 12 years. I really like to play..and of course never decline any winnings! I never had really big issues with the many different casinos I played...until today...

I am playing on this casino for about 4 weeks. No big winnings in the beginning until last week. I made a 50€ deposit and....the fun started...playing low in the beginning the game I played went crazy and soon afterwards I was betting 10€ per spin ..then the slot went even more crazy...and few hours later I had a winning of 1k and decided to withdraw...but as many times I changed my mind and got the money back to play more....Well I actually did this several times. Yes, I have many bad memories doing this in the past with the result of losing everything. Not this time.....my balance went up to about 5k and I did withdraw in total 2k. Then problems started with the verification of my account. It took a while and not until yesterday I received the message that my account was successfully verified and I should receive within 2 days an email when to receive the money. Everything good I thought and before I received their email I kept on playing with the remaining money in my account and guess what...the slot went crazy again and soon my balance was over 20k. I switched a few times the slot but went back again to my lucky one. And yes it kept on going crazy. I thought this must be my lucky day and I raised the spins bet up to the maximum of 100€. Soon afterwards my balance was 45k. I thought maybe it’s time to stop but I couldn’t because I had the feeling that there was more. And there was. I hit a big winning....and my total went up to....92k. At that time I had no message back from the casino about the outcome of the verification. I regret very much now that I didn’t stop playing. I played down to 20k....and went on. Another big hit followed and I was back on 60k. Of course you guess right...I kept on playing and lost ..and stopped at 17k. I said to myself it’s time....and still a very good profit considering that I only deposit 50€. Soon afterwards a nightmare started. Today I received an email from the cashier writing me that my 2k pending withdrawal was canceled as well my my 17k balance money. What the heck I thought. They just mentioned that it was because I played bets with 10€ per spin with bonus money and according to their terms only 5€ is allowed. I never experienced an issue like this...But one thing I was sure of...I played all the time with real money. Yes I received in between 2 bonus’s because I reached a higher VIP level. One thing I was sure of is that this casino let you play real money first. So after all nothing wrong and rechecked the terms were it is written. I contacted via chat an agent and tried to explain....no ear...The just keep on mentioning that I bet too much on my bonus money. The odd thing is that I checked once my account after receiving an extra level bonus. At that time I had 55k in my account so didn’t worry about it. Few hours later I checked again and wondered why the bonus was gone while I kept on playing with real money. Unfortunately they have no VIP managers over weekends. I decided to write an email about this and few minutes later they replied that my account was checked again by the finance department and their decision was final...Basta....no words about my arguments.....

yes, I will contact my VIP manager tomorrow...and wait to see what he says ....until then I decided not to mention the name of the casino.
if any of you had the same experience or can advise me what to do....please....meanwhile I will try to stay....calm..

Thx Kroffe
I would like to add that the casinos communication was bad and cold as ice. I feel treated like a criminal.
The main issue is that I was playing real money all the time and meanwhile received some bonuses. It isn’t possible to cancel them. They activate bonus play while I was playing real money and this is clearly in contradiction with what they write in their terms.
They mention in their terms that in case there’s still a bonus in my account and I want to withdraw they will subtract the amount of a bonus from my real money....

Fact is that they apparently threw in some bonuses and made them active while playing with cash. The bonuses just disappeared while playing me not knowing....because I knew their terms and was therefor not concerned.
Finally received an email from the VIP manager....unbelievable.... without any personal note...just writing the words:
1.22 Until bonuses are still active, bonus terms and conditions apply to the whole player account balance.
This means that you have to follow the bonus terms and conditions for the spicific bonus that is active at any given moment, even if you are using your real balance and nothing else mentioned.
What he writes is bullshit ...this would mean that at anytime they throw in a bonus I will be in bonus mode.....and they will not Let you know...so in my case I had at one time 92k real cash ...and after they add a bonus...without me knowing...I can only playSpin bets of 5€!
Its clear to me that they do this intentionally....activate the bonus and voila...I become the bad guy making a mistake without knowing.

Besides the bad feeling of losing money I feel treated like a criminal.....I will contact them a last time...with no result I will post on several forums a complaint...they will find out that I am like a bulldog...​

Bienvenue a CasinoMeister.

First, please kill the links in your post.

I most probably know where you played and the news are not good. The group is rogued here at CM because of trouble with one of their other brands where they did the same, IIRC.

Crediting hidden bonuses while you are winning and still playing, to then confiscate and avoid having to pay out real money. A $50 deposit to 19K is a lot of cash from their own pocket.

You will have a tough time getting paid, they will at some point lock your account, ban you from live chat and stop answering emails. Other forums might have some contact person but I doubt that it will help. There might be even one still here at CM, will check in a moment.

For the sake of clarity: When you started playing with the 50 Eur deposit - Did you receive a bonus on that deposit?

I had a chat contact with a VIP manager...but apparently he didn’t want to burn his fingers but he promised me that the concerned department will do a further investigation....I don’t know if this is true because yesterday I received an email saying that their decision to not payout was definite....
Anyhow, I will wait for an answer and hope for some goodwill...until then I prefer not to mention the name of the casino because I think this could harm...

Right - I have seen the country you say you are from. If that's the case then this could well be an unlicensed casino because I don't know any legit casinos that take players from your country. If it is taking illegal deposits then I don't think you'll have any joy getting paid. The behaviour you describe sounds rogue to me. I hope I am wrong, but you can PM me the casino name and I'll advise you if you don't want it in public.

Copy the exact sentence into Google and you'll find out who the shower is that operates the site. :rolleyes:

Interestingly, I'm geoblocked from their site. So has the player been using a VPN to get around blocking as well? If so, that's not going to help.

Dunover, they can now but they need to have a French license. No VPN used. They also have a French team and French website.

If we are talking about the same..... the name I have starts with Mont..... then they do not have a French licence, only one from Curacao, worth nothing.

The group used to be called Danguard Ltd or something similar.... they even had a Trojan horse with a UK licence at some point. :rolleyes:

Edit: the group was Danguad Ltd.

Well oh well...then this must be the same with Nordicasino. Playing there for almost one year but last December I couldn’t connect to their website...receive message..no server connection possible. Contacted them and had to wait for an answer one week. Nothing mentioned about the reason...I just had to use a different link...nordec instead of Nordic. Yes strange but at least I could play there again. Spent 12k in one year...sad enough no great winnings...so lost all. Then in January I had problems with deposits with my French MasterCard....no explanation...they just said that it must have been a problem with my bank..nope.
This was the main reason why I switched to another casino...not knowing what would happen. Yesterday I went back to Nordicasino and guess what...I were able to deposit. My gut feeling now says...it’s not okay! But is there any alternative for me in France?

AFAIK, online casinos are still not allowed in France.

A licence was planned but I have not heard of one being passed by the regulators.

As of now, if you want to play online it is at "grey market" casinos like the ones you mentioned. The problem is that you are completely at their mercy, they can always choose not the pay you for any reason they can come with.
