JACKPOT CAPITAL, SLOTASTIC, AND GRANDE VEGAS CASINO HAVE "TEMPORARILY' HALTED BANK WIRE WITHDRAWL OPTIONS FOR U.S. PLAYERS.
When I asked the customer service rep at Grande Vegas to "define temporary," she replied that the information could not be shared with me at this time.

U.S. based palyers can only obtain their rightful winnings by courier check which has become an outdated in today's electronic banking world, takes a very long time to clear, and is the most unreliable withdrawl method (ever had a check returned for "insufficient funds")?

The only other option is WESTERN UNION with the following ABSURD transaction fee structure:
$150--$500: $65.00

$501--$1000: $90.00

$1001--2000: $180.00!!!!!!!

This is the equivelant of usury.

:what: Don't follow you here. Usury?

But if you are in the States and still chose to play at online casinos, you have to expect issues when it comes to payments. It's been like this for a few years.

You wrote: "usury, don't follow". Go get a dictionary, look up the word. Then, compare the definition of usury to how these sites are going to charge 18% minimum on a $1001 withdrawl. The only other place to find a rate of 18% is your credit card when you don't pay it.

As for your implying that you in the USA will just have to take it---WRONG! This very site rates all RTG casinos as to who is trust worthy, and who isn't. You have suggested that this has been going on for "years"---are you excusing illegal behavior?---I read Casinomeister to protect myself from this sort of action---as do thousands of others!

Hold on! You are saying this site condones illegal behaviour. However, have you checked the fees for Western Union money transfers. High fees? Yes but its the company not the casino that charges it. Like it or not, USA players will have to contend with payment delays although there are casinos like 3Dice who go the extra mile to send payments timely. Your lack of respect towards others is annoying.

Yea,really chuchu. I highly enjoy online gambling, however I don't necessarily condone it. But i cannot express how much I appreciate casinomeister and this forum, and how I feel like I have a place to go when a problem might arise. I would never dis the Meister!

Chill out, dude.

It states right here:
https://www.casinomeister.com/accredited-casinos/
ATTENTION US PLAYERS: In most cases, the casinos listed here do not accept players from the US. There are some that do - please be aware that these casinos may have payment issues and your winnings may be delayed.

What don't you understand about that? If you are a US player and are still participating at any online casino - that's your choice, not mine.

The problem is just another thing that makes it difficult and expensive to experience this hobby.

My post reads that I rely on Casinomesiter's posts and information to protect me. Just because something is wrong doesn't mean I have to be accepting of it.

First off Welcome and hopefully you will find a great deal of info and resources here on CM. What you wrote implies that you have used CM for reference to play online? Correct?

I had already posted this tidbit about JC Group ACH issues in another post a couple days ago...............https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/threads/47102/

The accredited pickings for US players that gamble online are slim. I shall assume you cannot accept a check as payout? If you can get a check, you will be paid , just not in as timely fashion as in the past. So far JC group has kept their word (from my personal experience) and is (being presumptious here) making a concerted effort to retain their US following and reputation.

Otherwise, here's a suggestion to solve your problem Uncle Murphy-----

As painful as it is..........Don't play there. Simple as that! :cool:

Direct the anger to your Congressman

Yes, All these hassles, limitations, etc.. placed on U.S players really suck and I am also pissed about it. In this case though, it's not exactly the casino's fault and definitely not the fault of this forum or its admins so you are way off base there. You and I choose to continue playing online because we enjoy doing so. We know DOJ stance on this issue but basically we tell them to "F...off" by continue playing.
I personally believe they should not even be trying to tell it's citizens how to spend their money. This is not a case of a Casino trying to screw over a player but processing issues caused by DOJ sticking their long ugly noses into things again. So its a matter of how much risk we want to take...even playing at accredited casinos are risky as a U.S player. PAB at your congressman.
Maxd can help you draft up something. :)
