I need help! I have £450 I just withdrew sitting in casino rewards. Its gonna be sitting smiling at me in reverse withdrawal for two business days which means it might not process till next Thursday assuming that Mon and Tues arent counted as business days due to the holidays. They dont do flush!

I can just see it now the boredom will set in during the holidays,then computer on. Reverse a little at first say £20.Then a little more £30,then £100, then the lot. After which will come the crazy high bets trying to win it back and before I know it I have gave them a £100 deposit.

I wish I could put a limit on reverse withdrawals as I can with deposits.

Wait, maybe I will win! If I reverse just a little...........and so it begins!

Just try and keep yourself occupied-surely there's something you can do with family over the holidays to keep you from reversing it.

And just keep thinking what you can do with the money once you get it...Be hard on yourself-tell yourself you have the willpower to refrain from reversing it.

Even i the short time I have been gambling online,I,like most others have ending up reversing a w/d and regretted it-having that sinking feeling having blown it.

Remember that feeling? Still want to reverse it?

You know what's so sad (other than casinos leaving WD in players accounts for longer and longer waiting times)? Once upon a time, it wasn't that hard to get a casino to remove your WD from your reach -- out of the pending WD/reversible -- when asked nicely.

I never had that much trouble leaving a WD alone because there were plenty other places to play (back when USA players had 'choices').....

but perhaps you could uninstall the casino?

There is plenty to keep me occupied of course having a 3 year old keeps me busy,just becomes more inviting when there one two many shandies down my neck watching the "real" football next week. (Big game next week)

I could uninstall the casino but an mg casino downloads and installs in less than a minute. I will maybe ask support to lock my account for a week,dont know if they would do that.

I would never deposit anywhere near as much as i sometimes lose as a reversed withdrawal. Its just numbers on a screen I suppose until its actually coming out or into my bank account.

I like the "note on the screen suggestion"

What I will do is go play at one of the other casinos instead........just stay far away from the one where you have the pending w/d/ There are plenty of others to pick from where you live!

Congrats ...........BTW!

Do uninstall the casino. It places a 2 hour barrier on you reversing, and I bet family will nag you to "get off the damn computer" during that time.

If you MUST play, use a different casino, even a casino rewards one. Whatever the outcome, you will get £450 back by Friday at the latest. Just in time to lose it back on new years day:D

i know how you feel, i have been there too many times, maybe reversed over 60K++ last 6 years, and the best method is to be busy with whatever you do, worst thing you could do is to have the computer front of you and get the "just reverse 50$ of it" it WILL start with little and suddenly whole withdraw is 0.

call your friends, be with your family, watch a movie or two, make a nice dinner for youself or family, etc--

if you MUST play log on to diffrent casino, play for fun mode with 450$ and try hard to lose fast, after you lose you can get 1% of the feeling how you going to feel if you lose the real one.

Good luck :thumbsup:

I don't know if this will work, but you could try logging in three times with an incorrect password in the hopes that it will lock your account after the 3rd attempt. Then wait until you get paid before you email them asking to unlock it.

My brother says, " It's all just numbers on the T.V. until you get the money in your hands".

Instead of gambling just come here to Casinomeisterland and talk about gambling. And vent if you have too. :thumbsup:

Just uninstall it and switch casinos. There are several that have no or short reverse periods or will flush for you. You'll also get rid of the maxium weekly cashout limit too. :thumbsup:

I spoke to chat and of course they were very understanding but the two working day rule would have to stand,thems the rules. The first working day will indeed be next wednesday.

So I asked them to lock my account for the time being, so problem solved for me. But them not providing a flush means they are gonna miss out on quite a few deposits over the next 7 days.

Thanks and a Merry Christmas to all forum members and staff.

Crazy isn't it? They WILL lock the account for 7 days - but won't flush??? What a crazy business model!

When I have a pending withdrawal queued, instead of reversing I rather make a small deposit in some of the casinos that offer a huge deposit bonus, regardless of rollovers and max cashouts. That trick saved me several times from reversing the bigger cashouts.

Cheers
