    The only one thing I cannot understand is that why "cashout" button is unavailable until dept is unavailable (like all cashouts are being processed manually). So why don't allow players submit their cashouts at any time? :confused:

    Yeah, I know Russian
    well, cash out type is not available and that is not right. 2 hours prior to that, live chat told me that they are processing withdrawals same day, kind of strange, huh?I will keep you updated on how this thing will get resolved, but at this point i physically cant cash out.
    ----------
    ok here is my latest chat with them:
    Please wait while I transfer the chat to 'Jenny Montealegro'.

    You are now chatting with 'Jenny Montealegro'

    me: hello again jenny

    me: we spoke last night

    Jenny Montealegro: Hi

    Jenny Montealegro: yes how are you?

    me: i would like to make a withdrawal

    me: and i was really shocked that I could not make it automatically

    me: r u here?

    Jenny Montealegro: yes

    me: so, how do I initiate a withdrawal

    Jenny Montealegro: please send your request to

    Jenny Montealegro: This email is not visible to you.

    me: and then?

    Jenny Montealegro: they will be in charge of sending you your money I believe you need to send a copy of your ID and a utility bill

    Jenny Montealegro: make sure to let them know how you will like to receive the money

    me: so this is a procedure for every withdrawal?

    Jenny Montealegro: yes

    me: then tell me what are my option on payout method

    Jenny Montealegro: they will provide a WU or MG name

    me: so no quicktender?

    Jenny Montealegro: no we cant do payouts with it

    me: and last question, just to make it clear. Player cannot initiate a withdrawal within software, is this correct?

    Jenny Montealegro: no for the moment every time you want a payout you need to send it to that email

    me: ok thank you

    Jenny Montealegro: no problem

    -------------


    So, FYI, all payouts must be requested by email at this casino. And NO QUICKTENDER payouts. Pretty much only Western Union or Money gram. I deposited 100, got plenty of bonuses, so cant complaint on this. Played for a while. Live chat told me last night that they are processing payouts same day. Let's see....

    That reeks of "clip joint" casino. IF the procedure were merely to email a request, why didn't the original live chat rep say so - it was nothing whatsoever to do with a "tech problem", this was CS AT IT'S MOST BASIC LEVEL, yet the so called live chat rep didn't even have this level of knowledge, so what was the point of having them at all. It seems all they are there for is to give the IMPRESSION of 24/7 support, but all they really do is refer players to "office only hours" support.

    Modern casino software should be good enough to handle both deposits AND withdrawals from within the software, so that whatever time-zone the player is in, the request can be processed in the casino's own time-zone with the minimum of inconvenience to the player.

    Sounds like cheap software, put in use before it was fully developed. Not a good sign, but if you are US, this is the kind of BS you tend to get with the major softwares pulling out.

    In terms of impressions, this looks like a casino run "on a shoestring budget", otherwise they could afford well trained CS 24/7, and well developed software.

    No Quicktender could also cost them the US market in a months time, as WU and MG do NOT accept these types of transactions willingly, and they may catch on and freeze the ONLY withdrawal method this casino is offering, and players will run for the exit because they think the casino is no longer paying out.

    Now hold on.

    Betphoenix sportsbook is one of the larger ones on the net. I highly doubt it is a clipshot joint.

    The WU and MG transactions are the norm in the sportsbook industry and I think they are trying to carry it over to their RTG casino...(something most RTG players are unfamiliar with). Usemywallet and Quicktender are rarely used at sportsbooks...that is why it is not available I believe.

    BetPhoenix will end up sorting it all out in the end....just don't play there for a month or two until they get their act together

    I was able to deposit twice when they first launched using QT, so if the casino can take QT, it just seems to me that they should be able to pay out with QT (usemywallet).

    In some ways, that is even WORSE!

    The CS should have been properly trained BEFORE the casino went live. Asking how to request a withdrawal is probably a pretty common question, and even if CS couldn't access the system, there was NO excuse for being unable to look up the simple procedure required (send an email), and give it to the player there & then.

    If this is RTG, what archaic version are they running that has no cashier support for requesting a withdrawal - I have NEVER heard of one of the major softwares having such a basic deficiency.

    The lack of Quicktender support is very short sighted, since this may well be the ONLY way US players can get paid once WU and MG start ENFORCING what has been their long term policy of prohibiting gambling related money transfers. They won't be "the biggest sportsbook on the net" then.

    Hey man I agree with you. They should not have launched when everything was not in place......not getting off to a great start.

    I play at The Betphoenix sportsbook and all withdraws are handled through the cashier(different software) so there is little doubt that they will eventually get around to adding it.

    Hopefully (keyword) They will iron out the major faults and be a decent place to play for US players.

    Or just another RTG casino that floats away with 92% payouts....


    I just don't think they will end up scamming people...Bet Phoenix is highly rated at SBR(very trusted source)...I deposited over 50k during NBA season with them and feel 100% safe.....the RTG casino should be a good addition to the group....(they already have a live casino and DGS software casino on their sportsbook..it is very confusing why they felt the need to open up a RTG one)


    I am sure they will add Quicktender if their playerbase demands it.

    PS: I am surprised you never heard of the WU and MG payouts every major sportsbook has used them for years and years and years...

    I HAVE, but it works only because the transactions have been "massaged" to look like simple person to person transfers, rather than payments to and from gambling sites. I know that WU prohibit gambling related transfers, but have quite a problem enforcing it without impacting upon perfectly "legit" transfers. UIGEA may put pressure on WU and MG to "try harder", because it comes with sanctions that can be applied after June 1st. All it would take is one seizure by the DoJ of WU or MG funds, or even a mere investigation, and they WILL "try harder".
