Probably me lol with that Big Bonanza win and then telling their CS if they get shirty with the SoW I'll shut my account thousands ahead. Which they did, and I did. Therefore providing them with a good example of how relentlessly difficult it is for newcomers in the UK.

UKGC - "Did you check dunover's SoW?"
Bethard - "Yes, when he'd made 3k in deposits."
UKGC - "Did he complete it?"
Bethard - "No, as we were asking him to prove the source of funds that we ourselves paid him in winnings, i.e. the bleedin' obvious."
UKGC - "So what happened?"
Bethard - "He shut his account over 2k up on us, which we now have no chance of turning over and getting some back."
UKGC - "Ahh..... we see."
Bethard - "Tell you what, shove your license, irrational rules and nannyism up your arses - we're outta here and will offer our services in markets that we have a greater than 50-50 chance of avoiding bankruptcy in."

:D:rolleyes:

Shame - it's a good site, played there quite a bit.

Yes, lightning pay-outs and decent game selection etc. Typical. When we get a good new site, the bastard closes within months. :mad:

A very true synopsis of what UK players face and how so many casinos are basing their strategies on in recent times and no doubt going forward

As purely a player and one whom previously was up for all the restrictions and bans etc I’ve changed my mind.

We seen here a influx of players ripped off from genuine clip joints with licenses as valid as a Nigerian bank request.

Those players with issues probably 90% won’t see a penny. That’s basically theft and it’s a disgrace.

Obviously many of those players are driven to shit hole casinos because of insane SOW requests etc, so will the ukgc be able to help them folks?... absolutely not, unless the player can bankroll a solicitor.

It’s getting silly the nanny state, I’m up for regulation In the right places of course iam.
But the way they are going we are going to end up with a monopoly of the big boys like William hill etc running the show.

Then what happens to players whom had self exclusions from years ago with casinos linked to the big boys whom can’t play there anymore?..
they will flock to shit hole licenses and casinos where if you have a issue your basically as safe as Alan Carr at a Barrymore pool party full of drink and merriment.

Aye. And the big boys are shite at times. Ladbrokes - capped winnings, no lock withdrawal (last week, anyway), and getting slower to pay out. But hey, they're licensed!

Main casino I play at and they have been great over the past year. Payouts were instant, gave me free cash at times with no wagering. Been down for ages there but I just hit 5000x win on fruit party last week and now I'm in profit just as they close...

Shame its gone this way in the UK.

If I'm ever left with shite places like Ladbrokes to play, I think the towel will be getting chucked in.

In their defence - the various GVC sites all currently have daily freebies of various sorts, most wager-free (or 1x wager at most). But they're so SLOW and buggy lately, the sites are no fun.
