So today I deposit £250 on a new casino ended up getting to £1200, but would only allow me to withdraw £50 due to the sign up deposit. Anyway was doing good on Slots, then went down to £800 ended up going on the roulette and every spin was a lose. Each time this happens to me on so many different sites I simply exclude myself, this goes for those sites where you can reverse withdrawals you end up losing the whole amount and for me this will trigger another self exclude.

I must have excluded from around 100 online casinos now through frustration on so many levels. Is it just me that does this? lol

I've lost from so many winning positions that I'm almost numb to it. Some hurt more than others but on the whole I'll chalk it off and am not reactionary like that.

In regards to Self Exclusion, well, that's become a sore point for a lot of players. With over 100 casinos you mentioned there will be a few sister sites that will in all likelihood not pay you because you SEd at one of their other sites, yet all the while are happy to accept your deposits and losses. :mad:

It brings no end of problems, and casinos are taking it upon themselves to mark you as having a gambling addiction as the lines are still somewhat blurred in regards to UK regulations dealing with this!

Yeah I know what you mean, most casinos ask why you are closing and I'm honest with my feedback such as lack of bonuses, no 24 hour support, asking for ID etc etc.

The worse case of sister sites blocking me was Heart Bingo, which owns Jackpotjoy and Virgin etc. I was in the middle of a feature when a message popped up saying I'm banned and I rang them to say you allowed me to make several deposits and play for 3-4 hours before you banned me in mid flow on a slow. I made a huge deal of it and wrote several emails to the CEO etc In the end all my deposits was refunded etc.

I don't expect to win but expect a decent game for my money such as bonuses or the odd win spin on roulette etc, I do not believe for one moment games are random unless you are playing the huge progressive pots which I try and avoid.

Do yourself a favour and stop calling it Self exclusion. That is for problem gamlers and not angry players.
Ask to get your account closed instead and you're a bit more safe.

...and the games are random!

If I get pissed off with a casino, I just set the monthly deposit limit to the minimum.

So even if i forget not to play there, I'm reminded when my deposit gets rejected, since all my deposits are always above the £10 (or whatever) minimum.

Then if I change my mind at some point, I delete the limit, and wait however long it takes for that limit to be lifted.

I've never personally seen the point of self excluding...or take a break (TAB) because I don't like the session or want to play elsewhere. I just move on or close the acct and still move on.

SE for problem gambling is a different kettle of fish.

Haven't seen you in awhile. Welcome back!

I only have self-excluded from PlayOLG.ca. Nowadays, I don't even bother doing it manually as I wouldn't put money into their poor excuse of a casino. The Euro casinos, sadly, are making my job easier to avoid them in regards to country restrictions and tighter slots. I might be only gambling at Casino Lac Leamy and OLG Rideau Carleton Raceway again like I was doing prior to 2015.

What the hell does that bolded part mean??
Did you make a typo or do they actually have such Terms and Conditions? Deposit whatever amount you wish, and get a whopping max WD of 50 quid?
Seems like a bs ploy right off the bat. Can you please elaborate on this?

On topic, i've never self excluded, or used cooling off periods, and wasn't planning to: i did once accidentally confirm a deposit limit, but that had nothing to do with me being pissed:)

If i get pissed with a Casino for whatever reason, i just stop playing there (mostly after letting them know why i am unhappy) for a while, or forever
But that said, on plenty occasions whatever issue i brought up was fixed, or i was compensated, after i let them know..so, that's why i always advise to count to 10, contact support or management, then tell them what's the reason for your gripes, and you'll see many decent outfits will make things right..

I never SE now ever. At the most TAB but always have DL in most places. Apart from VS where Im soon to fly without a safety net :eek2:

But to the OP be careful because you might find self SE from a site that is part of a group. And when the new rules kick in with the UKGC many will no doubt find themselves locked out of all casinos registered with a UK licensee as the option to do a blanket SE will be set in place. SE should be for gambling problems only and not cause we get angry at a casino, which sure happens from time to time.

Also the bonus you took 250 deposit with max cashout of 50 ? that sucks I would never waste time or money on a casino with such limits.

I don't wanna say the name of the casino but it was 100% sign up bonus so I made a deposit of £250 gave me the max bonus of £200 which made my total £450, there was no separate bonus tab unlike the new way which is different tab (real money/bonus) which I prefer, I was playing £3-£5 stakes for hours and by the time I looked before I hit big bets on roulette I was only 47% into getting rid of the bonus to make the money withdrawable.

I just haven't found a casino site which for me is 100%. One of the biggest annoyances is sending ID to casinos it goes against everything the UK police and government tell us not to do, it also delays paying out. Some casinos have much better ways to check identity which is going via credit file and voters register which is far better. I also prefer the sites giving a truly 24/7 customer service via phone and live chat and 24 hour withdrawals. You also tend to find you win more the first time you play on a new site, which I think is done to keep you playing although many dispute this claiming the machines are truly random which I do not believe personally.

Do I believe real humans are monitoring players game play..Yes I do
Do I believe live roulette tables have magnets underneath - It's an interesting theory. But surly as so many people have wondered this question would it not be sensible to have cameras underneath the roulette table?

Why would they go through the trouble of paying someone to monitor your play when they can just program the slot to have a house edge? Much cheaper to automate it.

Not ONLY you - but not many would risk that with all the self exclusion problems about.

I have NEVER even closed a casino account, let alone "excluded myself".
If I don't like a casino - I just stop playing there. Simple!

No, I never SE or even close accounts, I love my top 10 casinos I play at :)

Its my choice where I play and how much I deposit and if I lose well bad luck for me. lol

I am doing terribly this month by the way, no matter where I play.

Not the Casinos fault but the games I chose to play, you never know which game is on hot mode, just luck :)

The reason casinos ask for ID is to prevent money laundering and you will not find a single online casino that will not ask for documents at some point.It is part and parcel of playing online but the reputable casinos have tight security systems and I have yet to come across a single player who has been compromised financially when sending in documents.Provided that you follow the relevant procedures then you will be fine.
