Signed up a few days ago at Sky Vegas and managed a withdrawal of £173 from their welcome bonus.No request for documents or any of the usual faffing about and the money was in my account less than 24 hours after making the withdrawal request.
If Sky Vegas can do it why do so many players suffer the usual prolonged agony at other casinos when attempting to make a legitimate withdrawal.Would also love to know if there are any other reputable places that offer a hassle free experience.

You will be unlucky to get a request for documents from any of them (although not guaranteed - nor is Skybet)

Just a FYI - with Skybet/Vegas if you bank with Barclays or Nationwide and do a withdrawal of up to £1500 by card - it will be back in your account in under 2 hours, usually within a few minutes.

Seeing as your in the UK. You have obviously been electronically checked.

All the bigger UK casinos do it.

Mr Green was the same for me last week. Requested a withdrawal a couple of hours after joining, money was in my bank the next morning.

Thanks.So it seems that it is all the large bookmakers are the main ones who do not make you jump through hoops.Interesting that they can do it whilst others cannot (allegedly).

Only casinos that have access to the info can do it electronically, if they don't, you have to send docs in manually. Some casinos chat can verify your documents there and then, others its a different department, who only work 9-5 mon-Fri, hence delays

Sometimes a withdrawal limit is put in place. Or used to be. Thinks it was Guts and 32Red that requested documents when I went over a set amount, was like 2k I think.

All accounts will need pre verifying from 1st of July (UK facing)

Virgin Casino (also StarSpins, Jackpot Joy - same group) verify you electronically - I've withdrawn thousands from all three and not once had to send documentation.

As I said in another thread, this should be the norm and not the exception.

Obviously they only have those two banks co-operating with them on it at the moment as remember, banks make money on your pending BACS transactions (which is why that antiquated method of money transfer hasn't been ditched yet).

All casinos have access to this data if they're willing to pay for it...

Card transactions aren't BACS, I'm sure in a few years all card payments (in and out) will be instant, but its a fairly new concept that is in trial stages still :(

Pretty sure they follow the BACS 3 day cycle. Processing day, waiting day then money in day.

In reality this cycle can take just over 24 hrs to complete in the week if you time it right. Payment processed 11pm first day, then waiting day then money in 12am next day.
