Hi guys

Thanks in advance for you answers :thumbsup: I joined bodog about 8 weeks ago and ive enjoyed it so far, ive already done the whole ID check thing bout a month ago and all my documents were accepted.

ANYWAY lol

I have finally won, and well being one not to do things half ar$ed I have put in a request for 30K...so far lol, im still playing with 2k.

As this is my first experience with an online casino, i have read some horror stories and I am scared that i wont get the payout for 2 reasons, 1 ive never cashed out at bodog before and 2 the rep I spoke to on the phone says i have to cashout through moneybookers (another thing im worried about as ive read stories) I really wanted a wire transfer its safer than moneybookers i think

So guys any experiences you have had with bodog you would like to share with me I would really appreciate, I guess you can see where im coming from, winning this cash will make a huge difference in my life since the accident so im really stressing out about whether im going to get the cash or not.

Thanks heaps guys

Lilz

Thankyou for replying. Im glad to hear that i shouldnt have any problems with Bodog casino, its more moneybookers im worried about, they have a max 90 day withdrawal limit and well it doesnt cover what i have won, so I phoned bodog casino again and i still wasnt able to talk to anyone in the processing department so im not sure what to do now.

As I am only new to the forum im still learning a few things lol, but is there a bodog rep on the forum? Maybe he or she may be able to help me out with this bit of a rutt im in.

Why are they insisting the p/o go to moneybookers? Is that the way you deposited? I thought about playing there but I too like wire transfers and wont if I cant cashout that way.

I thin you will get paid by BODOG..I would ugget however that you don't get a wire transfer or check for $30,000...It will call attention to itself

Another thing I think you can speak to the accounting dept...Several years ago I was able to do that. Don't know about the new management

You can always send a message to BodogBecky here on the forums, she is very helpful.

Hi Lilly, you don't say where you are from so that makes it hard to give you advice.

I'm in Canada, and I'm pretty happy with Moneybookers. I think you will find that next to the amount there is an increase limit button... I've already increased mine, and it's about $32K in a 90 day period.

If you haven't already increased it, now would be a good time to do so. I can't recall exactly at present, but I think I had to send a copy of a bank statement with my name and address and a Moneybookers' transaction, and possibly my photo ID.

While not ideal, you will be able to withdraw your money in a few months in the worse case.

Bodog has a rep here http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/members/bodogbecky.html and I suggest you contact her to see if she can help.

BTW, if you are in a jurisdiction where gambling is legal, I wouldn't worry about receiving a wire. Depending where you live, you might have to pay taxes however.

If you do reside in the USA however, moneybookers is NOT available for online gambling, so you need to find another option.

This is one of the few online casinos that you DO NOT have to worry about getting paid.

You will get your money and congrats on your win. SPend it wisely

Hi guys
Thankyou for all the comments. I live in Australia and offshore gaming is completely legal, provided we dont play in any Australian owned casino's lol stupid huh.

I looked into getting the limit increased with moneybookers but i dont know if I can as i couldnt see a link. The only way I can deposit with Bodog is through moneybookers otherwise I would have used my CC and bodog already has all my ID checks done as there was a bit of a "hitch" when i made my first deposit....long story but its all sorted and they accepted my documents a while back so thats all done :thumbsup:

The chick i spoke to from bodog again last night said that they would send $10k at a time through to moneybookers, I was sort of left scratching my head, because I surely dont mind the "inconvenience" of a 4-10 day waiting period for the cash to come through as long as I know im getting it im going to be happy.

I did email them and i did get one rep ask for my bank details but i got another email following off another person stating more or less tuff luck for me, that it has to be sent back via moneybookers and if MB doesnt lift the limit thats my bad luck...hmmmm now im confused

why dont you ask for checks? Thats the way I was paid couple times.
You can ask for 4 different checks sent once a week,
In any way stay calm ...Bodog its like having money in the bank.

I would ask for a check but it takes aussie banks over a month to clear them for some unknown reason.

Ive just spoke to them again for the umpteenth time and they will not budge on sending the money via wire transfer...this sucks my moneybookers account has a 23k 90 day withdrawal limit so i wont be able to touch the remainder, ive explained the situation to them. I was feeling very hopeful about it all as i just checked my account and someone from their end had cancelled the MB withdrawal so i requested cashout via wire transfer but i guess they are just going to cancel that one too.

For a n00b i am kinda getting worried, even though theres probably no reason to be, but you would think that just this once they would make an exception given the amount it is and that i can not deposit any other way except for MB....so that brings me back to being nervous about my cashout.

I did leave a msg for Bodog Becky, I hope she replies soon because I really need help from management.

Could you not remain disciplined for a little while...That's to say, cash out 23k in MB leaving 7k in your casino account, but at the same time increase your limits at MB. As soon as your limits are increased (say 2/3 weeks) cash out the remaining 7k.

Well done on your win btw :thumbsup:

listen...everybody here told you already: there will be no problem.
Ask to open an account at quick tender, from there you can have money sent to you via money transfer.
You will need an invitation from them or any other casino you play at that uses quick tender
Start now by withdrawing 20 .000 via moneybooker and than you will receive the rest via usemywallett.
Or 23K via moneyB and the rest a check...with 20K in your pocket I guess you can wait for a full month while your bank clear the check....cant you?
Do you want to spend it all tomorrow???:lolup:

No need to yell lol ;)

I do realise that there will be no problem recieving the cashout, i have no doubts at all about that. Yes it would be nicer to have my cashout asap, then i can pay for my operation instead of still sitting on the waiting list to find out if i have internally the big C or not, so I guess you can appreciate why i am anxious. I never expected to win this much but this is a blessing and everyday counts when youre as young as me with little ones to think about and wonder if by the time they do get around to diagnosing will it be or wont it be your (my) worst nightmare. If I had not of won then i would still be sitting here wondering and waiting, but this means i dont have to wait, i can be booked in within a week.

Im going to phone MB when they open and ask them to lift the restrictions, hopefully they will, if not then I will just look at it as a term deposit, hey i wont be getting interest on it but atleast when christmas comes around it will be a nice one for the kids :thumbsup:

Ive never heard of quicktender before, i will have to look into it and hopefully i may get an invitation...ah being a newbie to the world of gaming sure makes the mind get all giddy haha

Actually last I knew bodog only did checks, western union, or money gram transfers. They won't even transfer back to eWalletExpress as of right now. So if they money bookers your already 10 steps ahead of everyone else that I've known that played there.

I don't know if you can even phone Moneybookers, and I know that you can't email them you need to use their internal mail system.

And don't mail them more than once, it moves you to the bottom of the queue.

Hope you get paid soon. Even 23K would be a great start, and 23K ahead of where you were.

Not like the other 7K would go away, but it does hurt to wait.
