Beware Betfair Promotions

    Just a little vent here about a promotion being run by Betfair.

    They are offering a 100% match Bonus for their Arcade section on deposits of £20 or more.

    After accepting the bonus my Arcade Bonus Balance read £40, but when opening any of their slots my balance was zero.

    Here's the live chat:

    " Kristina : Hello welcome to Betfair you are chatting with Kristina. How can I help?
    Paddy: Hi.
    Paddy: I made a £20 deposit and accepted a £20 bonus for the Arcade section.
    Paddy: My Arcade onus Balance reads £40
    Paddy: But when I open any slot my balance reads zero and I am unable to use the funds.
    Paddy: Why is this happening?
    Paddy: Terms & Conditions state "Any slot featured on the Arcade will be eligible for you to play your bonus."
    Kristina: Not to worry. I shall have a look for you Paddy.
    Paddy: Thanks Kristina :)
    Kristina: Thank you for waiting Paddy.
    Paddy: No problem
    Kristina: Unfortunately we are having a bit of an issue with that promotion.
    Kristina: My supervisor has raised this with the relevant team. I shall be sending her your information so that they can correct your account.
    Kristina: I do apologise for any inconvenience.
    Paddy: So what now?
    Paddy: My £20 deposit is just tied up and unusable?
    Kristina: You shall need to wait 24 hours before trying it again.
    Paddy: Can you immediately place the £20 back to my Skrill acount please
    Paddy: as I was hoping to use this money.
    Kristina: Once this is resolved, you will receive a confirmation e-mail.
    Kristina: I am sorry for any inconvenience. We are looking into this and will try our best to resolve it as soon as possible,
    Paddy: Yes, but in the meantime you can immediately place my £20 deposit back to Skrill so I can use it elsewhere.
    Paddy: That would be the preferable outcome for me in this situation.
    Kristina: The £40 is a bonus, you would not be able to use it until the issue is resolved.
    Kristina: I can check with my supervisor to cancel the bonus for you.
    Paddy: Well I feel sorry for you Kristina for having to deal with all the customers that aren't going to be happy about this :)
    Paddy: Yea, but then I won't be ale to take the bonus again.
    Paddy: Complete shambles.
    Kristina: That's fine. I understand that these things happen and I try my best in explaining the situation as best as I can, to make sure that my customers are still happy.
    Paddy: Well thanks for the assistance in the matter Kristina.
    Kristina: I am very sorry for any inconvenience.
    Paddy: No problem.
    Paddy: Have a nice night."

    So now I have to wait until Betfair get their shit sorted before I can use money that I deposited and wished to play immediately, my money is hostage.

    So just to anyone thinking about taking the offer, please consider not bothering, you'll save yourself the hassle and frustration.

    Don't think I'll ever be taking a match offer here ever again in the future, in fact I'd nearly go as far to say I won't bother depositing there at all. As good a sportsbook as they are, this type of thing in 2017 is just plain unacceptable.

    I know it sucks when these things do happen. But sometimes you just need to grit your teeth, Kristina seemed to deal with it well, apart from ignoring your request for them to give you the £20 back.

    I hope they sort it for you. I do not play at betfair myself. I have an account, but never deposited based on some factors :)

    Yea she did, but I mean her response is as generic as you'd expect under the circumstances ;)

    Anyway there is obviously no fault attributed to Kristina in this situation, all the blame is firmly directed at their shitty technical team.

    True, and maybe but then again, it might be something to do with servers, Or maybe they just didn't fully implement the bonus properly. What is more is you probably wont find out who was to blame or what exactly happened, we usually never do :p unless of course they do pass the info on to the support staff who then are allowed to tell the players. But mostly they do not divulge that info to us mere players :p

    Well she told me to clear cache and cookies, before telling me she would pass it on, so at least you didnt get that :D

    She also told me to try 4 other games, 3 of which werent in the arcade section, and the 4th wouldnt open

    Raping rhino should work i think though if you want to lose on that!

    Ahh yeah, that really annoying standard reply we always get lol. It gets soo irritating when they say to clear cache etc etc. It is more annoying to people that are very knowledgeable in the first place, it is like insulting our intelligence, but hey, they do not know if the player they are speaking to as great knowledge or not :p

    Yea Rhino works, Literally playing it now after trying to open a shitload of games and seeing my balance on crap games I do not wish to play, and balance not showing on games I did.

    Not on Super Monopoly Money, but on Rhino both WMS (Scientific)

    Not on Topcat, but on Ted (Blueprint)

    This suggests it is irrespective of Provider. Also No NotEnt, which I guess is a blessing.

    Sorry you got caught like I did, but also glad someone else did too :D

    Btw are you Colin s on Slot Battles?

    I took their survey where a lucky few get a voucher. 25 people i think.
    It must of gone on for 30+minutes. I dont know how i pushed on after noticing the progress bar going up slower than guts previous boost bar would if nearing mini status. I feel i will be buying something from amazon soon as no one else could have possibly been as bored as i was to reach the end.

    Anyway, sorry to hear of this fuming situation of which you speak

    Betfair have some of the best casino promos. x5 or x10 wagering for 100% bonus is some of the best about. Never had any issues and if I do they quickly sort it.
