Just as a reminder to always leave enough in your bank account to cover the check, return fees your bank may charge, plus foreign bank return fees. Deposited it the end of October, just got a bounce letter today.

Have emailed the casino with a copy of the letter and check. No idea how I'll get paid now. Isn't online gambling fun!?!? :rolleyes:

Who was the Casino?----so we can be on the look out!

Maybe they ARE running out of funds----maybe that is why the games are SO COLD!

That is why i refuse to play at a casino that sends you checks as a payment. Checks have and will bounce. If im not mistaken a casino groups checks were bouncing all the way to the bank. Gl hun and your right gambling is fun(as fun as getting bite in the behind by a mangy dog) sometimes.

It was Jackpot Capital. Never had a problem before, but processors come and go like [email protected] in the wind. LOL I think all the accredited casinos have plenty of money... with USA players and RTG the problem is the processor. If the processor gets shut down or just walks off... then poof!! you get bounced checks, or transfers that don't get done.

I've always preferred a check. International wires cost too darn much. But that may be what I end up with.

I wont play any where that wants to send me a check. That is why I don't play 3 Dice. I wanted to cash out, I think around 450, and they would only do a check for under 1000. no thanks, I blew it all back trying to get to the 1000 and moved on. I wanted to try Winaday as well since there are some good reviews here, but when I checked, its a Canadian check only for under 1000.

I would never dream of depositing a check from an online casino into my account. It does work for some but i would worry about things like this.

How much do they charge? I always withdraw with international wires and its never cost me a penny (besides from the odd small casino fee)

Wow, that is a bummer that it happened so much later than when you deposited it :(

I also won't make a withdrawal in check form for that reason. It's not worth the hassle even getting the bank to accept it never mind waiting to see if it bounces, as they have more and more often in the past few years. I'll pay the $30 or whatever in wire fees just to make sure I get it and they can't take it back and screw me for a ton of overage charges, because you know that check is going to bounce after you have paid all your bills and have $10 in your bank account :)

Not sure when you're referring to but I've played at 3dice for a good while and those aren't the limit options nor all of the payment options. You should talk to their CSR in chat etc. I mean if you decide you want to play again. I don't want to list all of the options as some feel you shouldn't in the open forum etc.

Depending on which casino it was they might issue you a new check with the original amount less the bank return fees. Merry Christmas.

Casinos usually charge around $45 to send a bank wire. Then the bank charges anywhere from $45 to $65 to receive an international wire.

Chu, if Jackpot Capital sends another check how do I know it will be any good?? The check bounced because the processor account was a closed account. I feel they'll take care of it, but... meanwhile, I've got a big dent in my account.

It's a right royal mess here in the states trying to get our withdrawals out.

FTR, if you do get a check from 3Dice You will have no problem depositing it. As Cleveland said, I don't think it's wise to discuss here why but they have an excellent system.

I emailed JC support yesterday afternoon. Shouldn't I have at least received a reply saying they'd check into it, or they'd forward it to the finance dept by now? I don't expect the problem to be corrected immediately, but I'd like to know they'd received it. :confused:

I absolutely hate when crap like this happens on a weekend... and holidays coming up as well. Sheesh....

they are sometimes slow to respond via email but I have found that when that is the case talking to them in chat usually gets the matter resolved fast JC is reputable and I am sure it was a processor that went belly up on them and they will make it right. They offer other pay out methods where you don't run the risk of a check bouncing. I use these options a lot and never have an issue. I hope this issue is corrected for you asap

I am puzzled at how it took 2 MONTHS for the bank to realise that the money wasn't there to back the check. They should have called in the funds after the usual period, and then they would have discovered it was a dead account. It's a question for the bank as to why they took so long to inform the customer there was a problem.

If they really are taking this long to call in funds, it explains why there are so many complaints like this. We know that the processors tend to move things around, so such delays inevitably mean that valid accounts are no longer operating by the time the banks call in the funds.

What if this had been one of those check cashing stores? They would not have known for 2 months they had just paid out on a bad check, and that might be too long for them to retrieve the money from the customer.

Yet I think were referring to a Canadian check.
Trust me I've heard horror stories about US banks collecting on canadian checks. I don't know why, you would think the US and Canadians would even be friends banking wise. Making it easier for them to cash the checks, yet apparently there isn't. Even my bank said it could take up to 60 days for a Canadian check to clear or bounce.

Yes, a canadian check. Seems the clearing house holds international checks till they collect up a few before sending on to canada.... or something silly like that.

JC has been in touch. Will post when I receive my money.

I just had the same thing happen today with a check from JC ... I deposited my check 30 days ago. It came back as the bank account being "frozen" ... nice .. now my account is in the red and I am really upset! I contacted support but they wont do anything until I get the check back so I can send it to them. That is what live chat told me and now I am stuck with one of my bank accounts in the red to the tune of 1K, and I sure don't have an extra 1K just sitting around to cover it right away either. Now I am going to be charged continual overdraft fees until I can get the account into the black ... shit I am PISSED!!!! First time I ever had to take a check from them .. I couldn't do WU because I had a different cash out in the same week. They should just stop with the checks to US customers and strictly allow US customers to do WU for their cash outs more than just once a week since checks seem to be such a problem. I wonder just how long all this crap is going to take to straighten out??? Geez! :mad:

Sorry I missed this post. JC must ensure the next check is good and they should be adding the bank costs you incurred + a small chip for the hassle.

If WU once a week then i would deposit and if i withdraw i would wait another week to deposit again so that i ould use WU again. You right in saying WU needs to be more then once a week.(IMO)

The main problem any casino faces with the cash transfer options. Are the fact that Western Union tends to catch on way faster to odd foreign transfers than a regular bank does. So that's why they limit the amount and how often you can perform a transaction. There trying to keep you and them under the radar.
Otherwise once you go over a magic number, you get put on there "radar". Which could be rejected future transactions or even have you black listed from using the WU or even Money Gram system until they verify these transactions are for genuine purposes.
I've mentioned this idea to a rep before, and for the above reasons. They just can't offer cash transactions as often as we'd like.
The major problem is that there trying to prevent money laundering and possibility having there services used for illegal purposes. Trust me, have you read all of the fine print for either cash transfer services form lately? It'd scare you on how much they analyze each individual transaction and how much information they store on you for that transaction.
Really honestly for us U.S. people, it's really going to eventually come down to waiting for some legal options to come into the US. Besides Jersey and Nevada. I'm talking like an option available to the majority of the states. That way we don't have to worry about the feds or the cash transfer services seizing our money along the way. For as long as they see large amounts of transfers coming from Panama, UK, Cyprus, small country, and other small country wherever. There going to keep trying to figure out what the transfers are for and why so many in the US are getting them.

It is hard and that is why i said just deposit once a week if your waiting on WU withdraw. The checks especially when they bounce is not good at all.
