It is a good thing that some sites are now removing the fees.........it does still beg the question would they still be doing it if it weren't for this polite 'reminder' thread? :p

While it may be illegal I know of stores that still do it. I know in California its supposed to be illegal to charge a fee if you use Debit but they do it anyway so I use credit. They claim a lot of crap, processing fees, transfer fees etc MONEY HUNGRY is what they are..This is the bottom line, greed is the root of all evil. I hate to use religious terms but that is what its all about money money money......ya it takes money for you to hit a button......I bet their fingers hurt after its done.

This is correct Colin, now that the implementation of the EU directive has become far clearer and secondary opinion has been received, we have removed all charges for depositing and withdrawing via credit/debit cards for the EEA area.

Edit: we have decided to do this for all fees, for all payment and withdrawal methods so that there can be no confusion

If businesses and casinos had been charging ONLY what it cost them in fees, rather than trying to profit from debit card deposits, by charging a percentage or an inflated fixed fee.
Then these directives probably wouldn't have been brought about.
The fee for a debit card is fixed at a few pence. But people got greedy

Whilst the EU directive is still a tad muddy for some casinos and open to interpretation, I guess they'll carry on with the charges for the time being. It's a slow, complicated process :D

It's actually pretty clear in the UK, any casino who are charging payment fees are acting unlawfully. It's as simple as that.

Regarding the costs, they do vary on many factors, a lot of small businesses are paying 50p for a debit card transaction, which is why you will often see £x minimum spend signs up.

Right that's it. Just for that, I'm gonna throw a deposit into Rizk this weekend, hit a wild line early and withdraw the lot and run :p (that's if this rapidly declining memory doesn't let me down along with the RTP Gremlins :oops:)

As for that caravan, don't like holidays anyway *throws dolly outta pram**

Casino Luck were free to deposit there but now have ADDED a 2.5% fee! I asked customer service about it and they said it was a management decision. Well with some casinos now getting rid of that fee it baffles me as to why they would add it. Have not deposited there since that poor decision.

Then in that case, as far as I understand things they are breaking the "law" as far as UK players are concerned.

Jono - Off topic - but I've no idea how this happened!? :eek2: I'd never seen that before - so I clicked on your profile pic and it gave me an unignore option...? :what::what:

Please consider yourself unignored :laugh::laugh:
