The Black Widow, Sterlinghouse and Grand Banks crowd are notorious as you have seen from the links to other parts of this site - they've featured elsewhere too and experienced online gamblers are all too familiar with them and their slow pay policies.

Unfortunately, less experienced gamblers and maybe the bonus greedy either don't know about them or don't realise just how hard it is to get paid there and I guess that is the sort of customer that keeps them in business.

GIGSE is coming up in a few weeks time, and the management of these bummer casinos is usually present and can be confronted (Bryan has done this in the past for players) So I would follow JPM's advice here and pitch a bitch - it's worth a try.

They are almost worse than the ones that simply refuse to pay. They just keep stringing you along, torturing you with your own money. They are hoping you either get bored and go back and lose it, or maybe forget about it so they can just keep it forever.

At least the ripoff casinos are honest about their dishonesty!

No problem, be sure to let us know when you get paid! Then DELETE grand banks from your hard drive permanently!

Ok, I'll write here when I receive the money! Of course I'll never play again at these casinos, I'm not that stupid. :)

Didn't mean to imply that, its just that they will send you all kinds of VERY attractive bonus offers to entice you back. Just say no!

Yes, I keep getting these bonus offers, but don't worry, nothing can be attractive enough to entice me back to these rogues. If we don't learn from our mistakes, it is not worth making them. :)

unfortunately I made the mistake and played at BW and GB.

Ive been waiting (as everybody else) for my money for 5 weeks now.
(50 $ at BW and 830 $ at GB)

Is there any possible way to accelerate the payout, youve found out??
How long have you been waiting for your money in average?
Do Ive to keep begging via LiveChat shall I send daily emails or just dont do anything..... ?!?!?

If you have any kind of advice concerning that problem please let me know! :-D

just stay away

Honestly no one wins and it is easy to become addicted, I am and have lost all my life savings plus some, I am depressed, etc do yourself a favour and stick to occassionally going to real casinos for a treat.

Be warned

Hi Lukas85,

Send me your info via "Pitch a Bitch" and maybe I can get an answer on when you'll be paid.

yesterday I recieved this (after pitching a bitch a few days earlier) :

Hello Lukas,

This email is to inform you that the activity on your account from the
beginning of March 2004 has been system-flagged. Closer examination
indicates that your account was opened solely for the purposes of abusing
the generous welcome offer at Grand Banks. This is a violation of the terms
of use at Grand Banks and is not looked upon favorably as you might know.

Promotional bonuses are not made available for the exploitation of the
casino, but for the additional entertainment value provided to our member
players - we cannot emphasize this enough.

As your activity did not come to light sooner the property has little choice
but to pay you your full withdrawal amount (including winnings and bonuses).
You should know however, that your withdrawal will not be prioritized but
will be processed in queue with others classified for similar play.

Clarence Evans,
Manager - Grankd Banks
thats just ridiculous. I deposited 250$ met all wagering requirements and ended up with 830$ - who wouldnt cash-in in this situation ???? Now they accuse me of bonus abuse to excuse further delay of my payment. These sneaky scumbags !

Did anyone here recieve similar mails??

Interesting phrase they use at the end there, 'in the queue with others classified for similar play'. In other words, ANYONE who dares to accept one of the MANY bonuses we throw at you constantly, will be labeled as some kind of parasite in the eyes of the almighty casino, and penalized by slow pay.

GRAND BANKS, YOU SUCK SO MUCH I CAN'T WAIT TILL YOU ARE OUT OF BUSINESS!

Im beginning to doubt whether Ill ever recieve my money. Its been 6 weeks now that Ive requested the cashout.

Could you let me know how long you have been waiting for your cashout to be aproved?

Lest we forget, it was my chance meeting with one of their operators last year in Montreal that explained these "delays" in payment.

Why are so surprised that Lukas85 is getting shafted/the runaround/screwed over?

I'll see if I can get any further information to see what exactly is being abused here.
