Can you provide any more details of why exactly they closed your account and voided your winnings?

Btw.. i just looked at the casino´s website, why do you play at (shady?) places like that? If you play straight cash there are far better alternatives and this forum will give you much solid input on choosing the right casino next time;)

They welcome UK players with no UKGC licence and for player security they are "Gamcare Certified" :eek:

They have one of these too.

4.6. Any winnings derived from a deposit of 25-100 $/£/€, are limited to a maximum withdrawal of 10 times the deposit
They have the Rival logo and are based in Curacao.

Due to the nature of the Internet, it is not possible for the Company to limit access to its website to those jurisdictions in which it does business.
Nothing to do with the nature of the internet. Many companies manage to restrict access to those countries they are allowed to serve. Ask the big music and movie companies, they are so convinced it can be done that they make this a requirement in any licencing deals.

I suspect this term is a way to wriggle out of having to obey the law here in the UK, and allows them to turn a blind eye to UK players who lose, but I bet they will suddenly notice that they shouldn't be serving a winning UK player and will simply return the deposit.

This is typical of Rival, they really don't care about who they licence, regardless of all the promises they have made in the past to "clean up their act", and regardless of how failure to vet licensees has ended up giving Rival as a brand such a poor reputation.

Amen to that!
It really grinds my gears that Rival have followed Playtech and RTG before them, in selling their great products to any Tom, Dick or Harry who is prepared to pay for it. :mad:
It's stupid, short-sighted and very bad for players and everyone else involved in the online gaming industry :(

This one is even worse. It's not merely rogue, it is acting in a CRIMINAL manner with it's fake and bullshit "Gamcare certified" claim, and this is regardless of whether or not it actually accepts wagers from a UK player, or blocks them as soon as they enter their country in registration. However, offering the UK Pound as a currency is a good sign that they ARE prepared to flout the law.

This is a new low even for Rival. It puts them on a par with casinos that rip off software and pretend it's their own, rather like Jackpots Heaven.
