...or write for that matter. I received a promo mail the other day and was thinking damn why didn't I save/write down all the stupidities have forgotten most of them. I could just as well have named the thread "How to get a member to run for the hills" or "How to give a member a good laugh" well you get my drift I'm sure.
People please share :) I'm sure there's plenty to choose from.
Not a good idea to share the casino names though I guess ;)
I'll start with this promo mail header.

I like the ones when they say ... " Get $xxx absolutely free when you deposit $xxx with WR" ... Absolutely free ??

Not really that bad. At least not like the one from Go Wild when asked what promos they have 'You are free to deposit and play any games you like' ie stating the obvious without blushing.

Score, woot!

Doesn't (or didn't, I have no idea if they still do) Party Poker/Casino have a WR on all deposits, even if you didn't take a bonus. :what:

Quite a few (maybe even most?) casinos impose a small WR on non-bonus deposits - usually only Dx1 I believe.
This is to discourage players using their casino accounts simply to move their money from one place to another; e.g. Deposit with a credit card and withdraw by Neteller. The player would incur only small (or no) fees for this, whereas the casinos could have to pay large-ish fees for the transactions.

Sorry for my abscence. Good ones lol :lolup: :thumbsup:

All this twisting of words reminds me of another one. "Casino X 50% discount"

Do you have some funny or stupid chats to share? :) I so wish I would have saved those.

The latest, no copy sorry

Co: Hello and welcome to xxx

Me: Hi, I'm trying to register through a link but I end up at another casino

Co: If you use the link you get the welcome offer

Me: Yes I know at another casino obviously

Co: Thank you for your understanding

Me: Never mind, I imagined it would be good for you to know anyhow

Co: Thank you for your understanding.

Me: Ok (sigh) bye

Co: Thank you for your understanding

I had a chat once where the chat person logged on and said "Is there anything else I can help you with today?"
I said, "No that's all thanks." ;)

Seriously though, I have a theory that they have some set responses already typed out:

Welcome to xyz casino, this is (insert chatname) - how can I help you?
Please hold whilst I review your account (whilst?)
Thank you for your patience
Thank you for your understanding
The bonus terms are..............
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
Thank you for contacting blah blah blah

And they insert them by a keyboard shortcut and sometimes they just do the wrong one.

OH - once I had a chat with someone and it was one of those where you're supposed to put your name in the one box so your name shows up in chat like this:
Cindy: Hello

And I had actually started typing my question in that same box - so through my whole chat it was something like this:
Chat person: Hello how can I help?
CindyHi when I log into the casino I get this error and I'm wondering if it's because I'm doing something: Hi
Chat person: How are you?
CindyHi when I log into the casino I get this error and I'm wondering if it's because I'm doing something: What the?

:oops: It was so ridiculous.

:lolup: Funny stuff it's my impression too that they have some set phrases, From now on I'm gonna save the memorable ones including my own screw ups usually technical ones.The tech support people are usually friendly and helpful but I can see them shake their heads and reach for the aspirin. :oops:

I just received a video from their CS ... They apologize for the issue that occurred ... This explains it all lol :D

Exactly. :lolup:

I've had some weird chats at one casino where there's a delay in the system, can't explain it any better. They say it's some kind of overload and obviously they don't think it's a big deal cause they never apologize.
On my side it's a big deal since I have to wait 5-10 minutes for every damn line the CO writes.
It goes like this

Ok let me have a look at that.
Then i see "operator is typing" and she's typing infinitely. I'm waiting anxiously for the reply for 5-10 minutes and then finally she stops typing, and then it comes
Thank you for your patience
Then she starts typing again and it starts all over. When i finally get the reply to my question what happens? It all starts again naturally and I have to wait 10 more minutes to see if she will add any other useful information but it's usually:
Is there anything else I can do for you?

It drives me crazy :sob:

I think you will find that this is down to the CS dealing with other customers, so when you see them typing, it isn`t always a reply to you ;).

Said this before but 1 or 2 that really get on my crown jewels are;

"Clear your cookehs!"

"Uhm,I have"

"Clear zem now!"

Or

"Uninstall ze casino zen reinstall!"

Not sure why he's always German.

Like I wouldn't have thought of these before contacting support.

My problem is more frustrating

Before I can chat they ask for my casino name....account number and email address. Then the chat starts:

Hi may I help you

ME: yes I would like the 100% bonus that was mailed to me

Can I please have your account number and email

ME:..WTF...

Cant blame them. You should have elaborated what you were doing or making like making ####.

Then they will be able to give you a definite answer lol.

If that happened to me I would have spent the rest of the conversation telling her "Could you please address me by my full name? Thanks." Every time she spoke to me.

Yeah it does happen on some of the chats. You can rechange your name just by clicking on it and retyping it in on the name bar however :D
