Resolved BetVoyager - No response and money "missing"

I have been playing at betvoyager, the even chances casino, 6 days ago. Both blackJack and Roulette. About 5-10 times an hour my game gets cut off, every time after I placed a bet, before getting my cards dealt. I get an error message stating there is a "synchronisation error". If I close the game and load the game again, I always get another error. So I need to log-off. I started to notice that when I login again the money from the bet I placed seemed to be gone. So after watching closely, I concluded that indeed the bet was lost every time! I've lost about 30 euro this way, never getting a game with the bet I made.
Although this is a problem, it should not be something that would be difficult to resolve. I tried to contact their live chat. Here is a copy of this chat:

09.08.2009 01:28 xxxx1: i make a whitdrawl buy moneybookers and the money is not in my account ? can you help me please


09.08.2009 11:21 xxxx2: i think there many problems...


10.08.2009 10:49 xxxx3: hi


10.08.2009 10:50 xxxx3: how Can I cancel my account


10.08.2009 10:50 xxxx3: ??


10.08.2009 11:22 xxxx4: hai


11.08.2009 10:01 xxxx5: hell


11.08.2009 10:01 xxxx5: o


11.08.2009 10:01 xxxx5: anyone here?


11.08.2009 10:02 xxxx5: i need support


12.08.2009 00:20 tombee: hey I need some help?


As you can see, there has not been any operator for days. I tried to e-mail my complaint to support@betvoyager.com. I got a Delivery Status Notification (Failure). So this wasn't much help either. Then I tried to mail them using the form on the website. It has been 6 days and I did not get any response to that!!
So in my opinion, this casino is VERY VERY badly organised. There is no support at all (maybe the phone works, but this will cost me much money) and the software seems to be dodgy. I wanted to know what this error was about and why my money is gone every time I get this error. I still don't know it :what:

BELIEVE IT OR NOT!

I was waiting for their live chat and decided to read new posts at CM.
Today I tried AGAIN their address: support@betvoyager.com. I received a Delivery Notification - Failure. I tried the same the other day, with the same result.
...Wait! Someone showed up. Right now I explained what I wanted. Now he (she) left: "17.08.2009 18:20 * Support: has left."

- What an exciting report, right?

I have been waiting long for the support to show up. He took a glance and left.
Everything I said is 100% accurate!

THE SUPPORT IS BACK

While I was typing here their support came back and answered my question.
And what do you think? His answer really makes sense - it is quite logical (except for the fact he is asking me to write an email through their dedicated window on the site).
I am chatting right now with him.

Hurry up, tombee!

Doesnt sound good, especially the e-mail problem. Always tought there was something fishy about them. Hopefully Im wrong and both of you get your issues resolved.

Their "unofficial" spokesperson will probably soon jump in on their defense.

Edit: florin, report back on the progress.

I did what the live support said: wrote an email through their dedicated window.
I must confess this is the first time I use it, so I don't know how long will it take till their reply.
As I said, I used the normal email and the address support@betvoyager.com and I got the message: Delivery Status - Failure.

Let me know if you got any response. I do not expect mine anymore.. I'm glad I'm not the only one with problems over there, although of course I hope it all gets resolved :)

I'm seeing a number of complaints and issues related to these guys, Betvoyager, popping up recently so I'm thinking we should get a PAB or two rolling on them to find out what is what. Interested? The PAB process starts here: Pitch-A-Bitch FAQ.

Hello to all forum members.
I just arrived from my vacation (Golden Sands, Bulgaria :)), so I was unable to make a quick reply.
As you know, I'm playing at BetVoyager almost since it was launched. I won a lot of money from them, and I was paid in full. But it's not the case. I just wat to say, that I know how to deal with them...

tombee, which channel did you use to contact Support in chat? I hope you know, that BetVoyager's Chat has two channels: General (where players talk to each other), and Support (where you can contact Support Operator). I hope you used right channel (Support).
As for contact email, I have successfully sent them test message (see attachment). By the way, the best way to contact support is to send them an email through their internal email system ("Mail" benu item above the main page).
I personally hope that all your issues will be solved quickly.
If someone has any questions - you are welcome.

P.S. I saw their news, informing players about server maintenance. Maybe that is why you are experiencing these problems.

I tried both chat channels after I saw there were two options. I dit not get any reply to the internal email-system :) Maybe the server problems were to blaim, I'll try to contact them again. However I still believe problems could have been handled better.

Hello, Mr Badger and welcome to the forum!
BetVoyager isn't listed at Casinomeister (not in Accredited, not in Rogue section) and they don't have Casino rep here. The best way to contact 'em is to send email through their internal email system.
Also you may ask you questions here - I will be happy to answer :)
Cheers

deposited my 10 over the 5 days turned that into 106 with some lucky numbers but i never betted above 2 it was all penny bets so after a few thousand penny bets up and down i logged out on going back in to the site it said i only had 6 left:eek: WTF after a few days of emails to support, managment, they said on my last bet i placed a 100 bet and lost:eek: which i did not make, over 6 days and thousands of bets i only made penny bets and looking at my history they can see this, and i no when i went to log out i had 106 in the account. HOW THIS HAPPENED I HAVE NO IDEA, i have asked them to look into it but guess what They are not returning my emails so it looks like i,ve been shafted, and welcome to on line gamberling emmm

Playtech!...

Hi, Mr Badger

I could recommend 3-4 decent Playtech casinos. Minimum bet = 0.1.
In this order: Club Dice, Carnival Casino (NOT "Carnaval"!), Magicbox Casino, 21Nova.

21Nova is the former 32Vegas, which is rogued here at Casinomeister. Frankly I can not tell anything bad about it: they pay in 4 days (plus 4-5 hours), have very good support and roulette is quite decent.

The first one, Club Dice, provides the most balanced roulette outputs I ever saw!

As with all Playtech, you will have to play short sessions (30 min max).

Hello, Badger, and thank you for your explanations. Although I cannot say anything about your situation, because I've never experienced such problems. The only one I know is when player closes game window just by clicking on [x] instead of clicking "Exit" button. In this case your money you "took" for play will reamin "in game" and won't be appearin in you balance. For example, I have 300 on my acc, then I start the game and take 100 "on the table", so my balance will be = 200. And when I close game incorret, my balance won't be = 300, because 100 are still "in game". I will sned an email th their support with link to your post and ask to comment it. thank you.

I just got an email from Management:

Dear, Viktar
We don't provide internal information to third parties. Therefore, we cannot describe the entire situation to you. All we can say is that the player played with relatively small bets and at some moment made one big bet for 100 euros, which he lost. It's possible that he did this accidentally having twisted the mouse wheel or due to a different reason. Because he claimed that there was an error in the software, we checked it over very thoroughly and didn't find any. The player made this bet himself.
Sorry, I cannot advise any other casino to you, because I play only at BetVoyager and trust them 100% (I have never had ANY issue with them, and was able to withdraw over the 18.000 euros).

This does not add up:confused:

so after a few thousand penny bets up and down i logged out on going back in to the site it said i only had 6 left
That certainly looks like a software glitch to me, taking a 100 credit bet whilst processing the log out command.

There is a pretty simple check they can do to check out this story too, if true, the 100 credit bet should be the FINAL bet of the session, OR the FIRST bet of the new session.

It's possible that he did this accidentally having twisted the mouse wheel or due to a different reason
MORE BS! Surely the software does not increase a bet all the way from 0.01 to 100 for a VERY COMMON but accidental thing that happens whilst sat at the computer. To have this "design feature" is clearly at odds with the principle of "supporting responsible gambling".

More BS still.

They disclose a surprising amount of info to a third party, yet WILL NOT RESPOND to the player concerned.

They clearly KNOW that around the time of these incidents that they were having server issues, yet seem to dismiss this out of hand as a possible explanation.

P.S. I saw their news, informing players about server maintenance. Maybe that is why you are experiencing these problems.

Shoud have investigated whether disconnects and botched software "resets" could have been the cause.


This may be the tip of the iceberg;

I'm seeing a number of complaints and issues related to these guys, Betvoyager, popping up recently so I'm thinking we should get a PAB or two rolling on them to find out what is what. Interested?
A few PABs should reveal if there is any "bigger picture" to all of this, so anyone here not satisfied should submit one (and then stop posting further until it has been processed).

Fully agree with you, vinyl.
PAB should be posted.
