Hi guys, just a quick one for you to give me a bit of feedback.
Played on Videoslots and deposited with my brothers CC to the sum of £800 with his permission of course. Apparently this is not allowed and Videoslots have closed my account because of this. So my question is are the deposits valid? As I am sure if I hit a big win it would not have been paid out. They asked for verification from my brother for the cards and a written letter saying he gave his approval so all seemed ok then a email saying my account was closed because of this. Whate do you think? My brother had used Gamstop to exclude himself maybe 2 months ago and was not playing on the site along side me at the time.

No your not in your rights to get deposits back not sure why you would even ask or think that......If you havent played or lost the £800 then of course videoslots will refund them back to the card.

Under the UK rules, the casino may well have to refund the deposits as the permission was invalid having come from a self excluded player. They do themselves no favours by sending out mixed messages by first saying it's OK to use a brother's card provided they can produce a signed letter of authorisation. Why would a player want to use someone else's card rather than their own? One obvious reason that occurs to me is "because they have no money of their own to gamble at the moment", which is surely an RG issue, and as such the casino should not be allowing it. Ideally, they should have systems in place that check the name of the cardholder against the name registered on the casino account and block deposits if they don't match and ask the player for an explanation. This would avoid situations like this from developing.

Did Videoslots ask for the letter before or after you made the deposits, ie did you ask them before using someone elses card?
Must say though, this isn't the first time I've seen Videoslots seemingly say one thing then do another recently.

It is not allow, but you can to do this
If nobody now ;)
So you can windrow the money with approve from your brother, but you shouldn't talk this for everybody
everything on your risk
No he can not withdraw the money because the account is his name and the card in another name, so he wouldnt be able to keep this a secret from the casino

Wouldn't have paid in either scenario, the brother docs were likely used to rule out fraud, surely....

before i knew much about online casinos i used my cousins credit card about 3 years ago on my royal vegas account
i had the biggest win of my life on thunderstruck 2 and i was never able to cash out any of it
i haven't come close to the winnings since and i have been playing slots pretty much every other week
i think the only times you hit it big is when you aren't able to withdraw or it was just dumb luck?

Asked for the letter after.

Or it could be a SE-ed problem gambler opening casino accounts in his brother's name.

Gamblers will go to any length to get their fix. Hence, I would take this story with a grain of salt.
Not the case,however have your pinch of salt moment.
