    :mad:Well im not going to mention the casino but i been playing for 10 yrs and never was charged a fee for ewaLLET from the casino 25.00 this is unheard of just because they cant do wire transfers or checks charge me as fee? look below this is the response i got


    Thanks for contacting me. We do very quick withdrawals and we allow for one free withdrawal a month but there is costs associated with all additional withdrawals. This is not something I can do anything about. It is a policy. For our regular players as well as VIP


    There telling me all casinos charge a fee of 25.00 looks like ill be looking somewhere else to deposit this is not fair If im wrong ill eat my at but i know im not. Not using any names they know who they are

    The way things are going as of late online, getting paid and getting paid quick might be worth the $25.00 dollars.

    Think things out before you over react.

    This is VERY unusual, and to try to cover it up with a blatant lie (all casinos charge this) is rogue behaviour. Most casinos do NOT charge for ewallet withdrawals, and the few exceptions that I know of charge MUCH MUCH LESS than $25.

    Intercasino charge $1/1
    Purple lounge charge $1/0.50

    The ONLY time other casinos make larger charges is when they see large movements of funds in & out with relatively little wagering. This is to discourage it.

    If they are saying 1 free withdrawal per month, then once you withdraw, don't deposit for another month, play elsewhere. This will surely cost them more than the savings they make by charging $25 per extra withdrawal.

    Casinos DO pay fees, but most do NOT pass it on to the player, believing it will discourage them from depositing.

    For a low roller, this is prohibitive, although a high roller might not be overly bothered, except on principle.

    I have NOT seen such large fees for EVERY withdrawal option elsewhere, this is HIGHLY unusual, since casinos normally pay all the fees for the player if their deposits and withdrawals are considered "fair use", that is - they deposited because they wanted to play.

    Their policies also make it even MORE prohibitive to use more than one deposit method, since single withdrawals after numerous deposits from different methods CANNOT all be sent to the same method, since the deposits have to go back to where they came from, which looks like a whole load of fees will add up just for a single withdrawal.

    Once players encounter this, they may well decide to move on to another casino, where these charges are NOT made EXCEPT for the premium services.

    Hi all,

    I'd be telling them to bang it :mad:

    As VWM suggests it's restrictive to low rollers. Especially when on average players may make 10 or 20 deposits. Of these, it's likely they only make play through (if on a bonus) once and enough to cash out once, for what maybe, only $500 or so.

    I'm sure most of these players are still in the hole.

    To expect these players to wear a withdrawal fee, is nothing short of penalising players who win.

    As a high roller even though the fees would hurt me, I still wouldn't pay them. On the basis of what VWM said, principle.

    Though it would be highly likely that higher rollers would have these withdraw fees waived by casino management.

    All in all it's BS...I'd be playing someplace else.

    It's not about shaming them it's about giving other players a heads up.


    Cheers

    :)

    I agree. it is not about shaming them. But if this is a change in policy, you state you have played there for 10 years, then we all need to know. I don't go in and read every time I deposit to see if there have been changes. That is what is great about casinomeister. Because we all find these things out. I say name, so the rest of us know if this is also a place we regularly play. So much has changed since january that it is making it so it is not worth playing.

    I wonder if I can charge them $25 to deposit. If I knew which casino I'd email them my bill.

    Not sure, but this looks like Lock Casino. They were charging for QT withdrawals also, but rescinded due to some comments on a thread about Lock Casino.

    Last week I was told by a rtg rep here in forum that if you deposite with a cc and withdraw thru qt there is now a 25. fee on anything under 250. and it wasnt from lock casino. rep it was another accred. rtg casino here. I told her they need to let people know this before they dep. with cc. instant message them when casino opens to let us know of change. She said they were working on that.

    The important thing here is that any charges like this must be made clear to the player before making a deposit. It should not become a surprise after a withdrawal attempt is made.

    Casinos have a right to charge whatever they like to make a withdrawal. (Banks have always done so) But the difference is changing your casino account is far easier than changing your bank account.

    Having a flat fee does seem a little unfair, especially to the lower rollers. A percentage based transaction fee would seem more appropriate.

    IMO they should not be making a profit on transaction fees, It should be just the actual cost plus a small administration fee.
    Otherwise charges like this start to become a membership fee by using stealth methods.

    so you would rather your fellow gamblers deposit blindly into this casino possibly an then go to withdraw an find out the charges then
    seems you posting you are not happy about this
    so why not name them
    so what if they block you

    makes no sense to me that you would not name them

    Not sure if I am following this correctly- is this a fee for making a credit card deposit and withdrawing to an E Wallet or they are charging this fee if you deposit by an eWallet and withdraw to the same EWALLET ?


    Edit- Sorry didnt read properly- I thought it was all EWALLETS you were talking about- this fee is for withdrawals to EWALLET EXPRESS.:oops:

    I use Neteller and there is no fee for withdrawals.
