Last week I deposited $100 at Casino Craze, before checking out the software and decided I didn't like, so I withdrew my $100. Well one week has gone by and still I am getting the run around. Here is the email thread:

Dear Graham,

Thank you for your email.

Until we confirm your documents were satisfactory or until we receive a
readable copy of your address this process will not be completed. As you were
informed by Larry we will be in touch by email shortly with the outcome of the
review.

Should you have any further questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact
us again.

Kind Regards,

Paul

Sounds as if you are being given the runaround, alright - this looks like standard CSR stalling to me.

Casino Craze is Boss-powered and owned by an outfit registered in the BVI called Penny Lane Holdings - Fast Poker.com belongs to them as well.

I would advise these clowns that you are going to contact Boss and Webdollar regarding this unreasonable delay over $100 - that should have the desired effect.

If not post here and I'll see if I can assist.

I think 'Scummy' is far too polite.
They make you jump through hoops to get your own money back?
Money laundering with just 100 bucks? :what:
Give me a break!

BTW, this was the casino with the 'Silly' T&C's in my post 'Silly bonus of the month - May' - so I guess I should not be surprized...

Hope you get paid soon.

Only played there once but from the way that they dealt with my problem, I had no doubt that the customer's interests were not high on their priority list.

to much

Another online casino delaying payment. Gee what a shocker! And what makes it really sad is that it is your own money! The things these online casinos pull these days. Stall, Stall, STALL!!!! How sad.... :(

I had only heard good things about them, but this is ridiculous.

There are some strict rules about money laundering, and that is how it should be - this is the excuse the DOJ is using to crack down on the industry in every way it can.

But $100? Paleeeeese! :eek2: That is just plain silly!

They whine and whine about security and fraud prevention just like every other internet casino but the stupidly hypocritical bit is they only ask for ID when you withdraw. They're happy to take money of children or money launderers but a bit mffed when a genuine customer wants his money back.

Latest Reply...after faxing a third time and emailing twice

This is to inform you that we have requested the Accounts Management to
contact you regarding the fax you sent containing your drivers license
as we do not have access to the faxed documents. You should receive a
reply either tonight or tomorrow morning British Standard Time.

Wow! I Got My $100 Back!!!!!!!!!!!

IT'S A MIRACLE!

After 9 days of waiting, 9 days of begging, 9 days of headaches, 9 days of endless email trails, 9 days of stalling, 9 days of being jerked around, 3 faxes with 3 pieces of ID, Casino Crazy gave me my $100 back!

Thanks to Casinoguru and Jetset for their assistance...

I'm 100% sure, without their help, I'd still be getting the run around by the Craze!

These guys are the biggest joke I've encountered on the Net in nearly 2 years of poker/casino playing.

My suggestion for anyone looking for a new Casino Online to play at, try Casino On Net or the Fortune Lounge. Better yet, learn poker and avoid these online casinos in general...

Cheers,

Mac

Very glad to hear you got paid. What a ridiculous run-around though. :(

Mind you, you must have been a little CRAZY to have deposited there in the first place, if it was your first deposit for a 100% sign-up bonus. They have a 50x WR on this = nearly the worst of all Boss Media casino's, and something no-one should ever commit themselves too!

Good luck (and read the T&C's first :rolleyes: ) in the future! :thumbsup:

$100 Bonus Credited To My Account

After all the stalling and BS, Casino Craze decided to give me $100 bonus credit, after I received my $100 withdrawal.

It was thoughtful,...but something along the lines of a husband beating his wife, then the next day saying he's sorry and loves her...


Sorry, not good enough...the damage was done...

Just the way I see it.

Cheers,

Mac

More great news!
Now all you have to do is simply wager $5,000 without losing more than $100 and you'll be compensated for the earlier BS! :D
Good luck again! (You're gonna need it!)
