I believe I signed up with Grand Hotel with CM, but I might have got a CD, and checked them out first.

I find it disturbing that their telephone # for Canadians has been wrong for at least a month. Sorry, relatively new to forum so I cannot direct you to those postings.

Got sent an e-mail that was directed to junk as suspected phishing, but it offered me a $15 free chip.

Rather than click the link, I asked the Rep here about that. Mind you, it's only been a day, but they have not made ANY posts or PM's since March. Or any at all since joining CM

Logged into the casino rather than click a link in suspected phishing, and low and behold, I had $15 in my account, not bonus account, just account.

Terms & Conditions for $15 bonus were maximum $300 payout, seems very fair for a bonus you gave a player for nothing. Cashinova was good to me and hit bonus round early. Got up to over $50 and tried cashout. Seemed to work fine, so I cancelled that & tried $25, because a lot of sites have minimum cashouts. Seemed I could do a $25 cashout, so I played a bit more and cashed out at $35.00

I could not access my banking history, but the pen & pencil steno pad I keep indicate that I deposited $50.00

Sent support an e-mail thanking them for freebie and win. And that I could not access my banking history. Told them that I would not be depositing (again) before receiving cheque, and addressed issue of non-working support number (no live chat for support). Asked their normal timeframe for cheques. Promptly got automated response

Got a reply to my e-mail saying it would be responded to between 24 hrs and 7DAYS!!!!

Seven days is too long to wait for support.

I will keep all you CM members posted how I fare.

New here, but I have more time than money.

I can see that they were once rogued, but they they are found..(sung to the tune of Amazing Grace)

I will be sure to keep you all posted on my progress.

Thanks to others members for posts about Grand Casino.

Yes, seven days is indeed long for support, you should get an answer within 24 hours.

But actually Grand Hotel casino is not rogue, in my opinion they are one of the better casinos out there.

Thanks James

I would not have put in my time even for a rogued casino. But player history not available, outdated info for telephone support, a rep that is inactive here... is that not red flag materiel?

Hey, they gave me $15 bucks. If they pay up, and provide me with a support phone number, I will be grinning. My (i think, since I cannot check my transactions) $50 loss will be magically transformed into a $15 loss and the casino is still up and will I will be happy.

I promised to keep this thread up to date, and some folks have had success there.

Definitely need to post new tele. no. on their pages

Support from Grand Hotel Casino - update

Hi. Checked my e-mail before bedtime last night. I received this response from Eprocashier.

"Dear Linda,

Thank you for your recent communication.

We would like to inform you that your winnings are currently still in the 24h pending period.
Once this period elapses, we will be processing the winnings. However please note that with the
$15.00 free gift the minimum amount to cash out is $100, therefore your winnings will be reversed
back on the casino account for you to fulfil that criteria. We advise you to reverse the winnings
now to save time and try to reach $100.00.

As per the toll free number, out IT department is checking if there were any problems and if there
were, it should be resuming to function properly soon.

We are looking forward to hearing from you soon and please do not hesitate to contact us in case
of further queries.

Well great, but I was dismayed by the $100 minimum cashout. Thought I had read terms and conditions correctly for free $15.00. There was also a match deposit bonus, and it had different terms, including the $100 minium withdrawal, but the $15 free chip had its own paragraph, and the only caveat seemed to be a MAXIMUM cashout of $300.

Terms and conditions of the offer included that it was by invitation only, and that it was not to be posted on forums, so I am not going to link it or copy text, but I worked as a legal secretary for more than a decade, and was pretty sure I understood the terms.

I was not surprised by the offer of the chance to reverse my withdrawal, and we will see how long before IT gets in touch with me.

Well, dang, I was DELIGHTED to receive this emai in my inbox from Grand Hotel Casino with subject line
"CONGRATULATIONS !! YOUR CASHIN WILL BE PROCESSED SOON !!

NB note that the phone number for Canada is incorrect.

Love that word SOON. I asked very politely in my original mail to support how long to expect to wait, and soon is not an answer. If you only write cheques once a week, tell me 3 - 7 days. Or that cheques are issued the first & fifteenth of the month, or whatever, and a reasonable amount of time to allow for mail to arrive to Canada.

Oh, and didn't you just send me an e-mail saying I couldn't have it at all?

I checked My original post probably should have contained that I PM'ed the VegasAffiliates rep on Wednesday, and is now Friday. If they are having trouble with thousands of Canadians, maybe she just has not got to this yet, I hope she This was about the phone number issue and I like to make sure I understand the T&C stuff, and nothing to do with bonus, and the fact that the "invitation" was delivered as "suspected phising". (See the first post in this thread). I see that they visited Casino Meister yesterday, so I now see that they read my PM and I hope to have a response soon. I saw from another thread that any Meister member was given a a phone number for Canada. I suggest that she post that support number to the threads about this phone number issue, as well as here.

Maybe I will get a "cheque's in the mail" e-mail soon. Or a reply to my PM about the phone number.

Automated e-mail I received responding to my questions said support would respond in (bolding mine) 24hrs to 7 days.

IMO 7 days is a long time, but it is now a week. I will send their rep another PM just in case it got lost in cyberspace.

And will keep Meister members updated on my progress. I do not wish to unfairly slam a reputable casino, and thank everyone for their help and comments.

I plan to become an affiliate (for only a few places) , but my website's focus will be on food, gourmet items, cookwhere, etc. and I am taking and using bonuses so I can share my personal experiences as well, and hopefully the casino banners will provide some income to gamble with!

I still have had no response to my PM to the Vegas Affiliate rep.

Sorry it took me a couple of days to get to this, but I have been ill.

Well, there is in fact $35.00 credited back to my account. But the phone number is still wrong, and I would have had a better explanation that I had to reach $100 to cashout with a response from someone. IT has not responded regarding the account history issue, I still have not heard from the Rep, and my confidence is not restored.

I think I have spent enough time on this matter, and will just go play that $35.00. I still can't tell if I made a deposit or not, but if I did, it was not more than $50.00. Hey, if I could only just call someone?

Oh, this time in from Grand Hotel itself:

I am paraphrasing but they sent me a reminder that I have until April 29th to take advantage of a match bonus promotion. Yeah, I'll be right on that

Unbelievably "dense" CS!

They don't have a clue, and the subject of the phone number seems to be well over their heads, perhaps they should ask one of their KIDS what to do about a phone number that goes to the wrong person when called. Maybe they should try the number themselves and see what the problem is.

Perhaps this Toronto park is getting fed up with all these calls from Canadian Online gamblers, and may think to complain to the authorities, and maybe this will bite the Kahnawake in the a$$, as the Canadian government don't really like what they are doing.

If it takes a month or more to correct a phone number, how can players trust that more important aspects of the website are accurate, such as important changes to terms & conditions, as seems the case here with the player confused about the cash-in rules for this free chip.

I have received this offer too, and the rules look very complicated, yet MG have a bonus system that make rules far simpler.

Here is ONE MG casino group that has the dreaded max cashout rule applied for EXISTING LOYAL PLAYERS, just like RTG. Other MG casinos only have this rule for free chips given to new players who have never deposited.

At least with a free chip, only time has been lost, not money, and you have found out how bad their CS for Canadians is for free:D

Tell them you and your fellow Canadians will only deposit once they have a valid phone number, and not before;) (by Email, of course).

Played that $35 in my account down to $0. Had I reached the $100, would have tried to cashout. BTW No Canadian Phone #, and no further answer from Tech Support. Easier ways to lose my moolah.
