    I deposited the check I received from Uptown Aces a week ago and it hasn't cleared. I deposited one last year and it cleared the next day. How long does it usually take? I think a week is more than enough time!

    I did and all they will tell me is that it can take up to 12 business days.

    Gee thanks Debzy :)

    I'm on my way to the bank right now with a check from a WD. (Will keep casino name to myself for now)

    It is drawn on a Canadian bank but issued by some shell-type outfit that, when I googled them, is connected with those "You have won the lottery" kind of scams.

    I am nauseated, disgusted and completely disillusioned by my i-gaming experience in general the last 6 months.

    I am most upset with myself for falling back in bed with these scumbags.

    Please leave enough money in your account to cover the check should it bounce. A couple years ago one Canadian check bounced back 'account closed' 7 weeks after deposit. Processor closed account during the time of receiving and depositing and clearing of the check. (Casino DID make good on it + fees). Just a heads up.

    I'm sorry - it's a little distressing, I know. I'll let you know when mine clears. They just removed the processing fee from my account so I'm hopeful it will clear today.

    I don't plan on touching it for a while anyway - I just want to know it's there. Good advice though.

    Hi Mousey :)

    I want to thank you also for that info. Not that it's all that comforting, but geeez,....such a helpful lil' rodent :p


    I would like to add one thing though, for all U.S. players:

    I took Bryan and Max to task on the debit card mess and I was very pissed because they had not made any kind of announcement/warning concerning RTG casino processor issues here in the states. They were both kind enough to respond and were pretty civil about it.

    It was pointed out to me that Casinomeister is primarily a European facing site. The stance on U.S. i-gaming except where noted is, and always has been, caveat emptor. Just a friendly reminder.

    That being said, it has been quite a while but I haven't had any problems with checks in the past. Actually, to be fair, it was processed and sent pretty quickly. We'll see. :rolleyes: :p At this point I don't really give a shit.

    Ive had 4 checks sent to me now. All from canada and after I waited 2 weeks they were totally cleared. I dont know if it really takes that long but I wanted to be cautious to avoid overdraft and that sort of thing.

    I have only ever received a Canadian check 1 time. My bank took 60 days to clear it and charged me an outrageous fee. Since then I refuse to play any place that can only pay me with a check.

    My bank (um, let's call it Bank of UnitedStatesofAmerica) has always cleared checks from the Bovada group the next day. The only catch is that you have to deposit them in person (either at the drive-thru or inside), they can't be deposited via mobile app or atm. No one's ever blinked an eyelash at my deposits.

    I have had several Canada cks in my banking. it has taken 6 weeks a couple times for them to clear. I know how my bank handles the process now as ive done it quite a few times. deposit the ck. it will show as a deposit. but in couple days the dep will disappear. at that time don't fret as its in the process of clearing. I have waited 4 to 6 weeks and then the money will re appear in my account once it re appears your good to go . I don't try and use the dep as it
    disappears and im not able to even see that its in the bank. but patience is required and you pretty much have to forget you had any winnings .. until ck is cleared. depending on how each bank I think handles the ck and also I think which processor as to how fast the transaction clears. but that's how my bank deals with my checks.

    Canadian check's :poke: It seem's like a poke in the eye.

    It appear's in many casino's and it is a PAIN for all US player's.Most US bank's will take forever to get the fund's as again we here in the good ole us of a have to content with a government that is to say the very least paranoid. Not to say there is no good reason for that paranoia but to us online player's it is almost overwhelming.

    I will say that perhaps some and just some of the casino's out there are happy to cut a check that will allow them to collect a few more buck's in the high yield acct's that most have the payout cash in. I would rather take a wire transfer than a check it seem's cheaper but in the long run it may cost you more than you can imagine. Always be prepared for a hassle and the bank's see what we don't in most cases.


    Sorry, ebee I know you have been having problem's too with getting your buck's.As have we all it is getting tougher out here in never never land.Good Luck to all of you on your check's I will have my finger's crossed for you.Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff

    Hi,

    I haven't taken a check from a casino in years. When I was playing

    at CWC group, I used "paymycard", which is now gone.

    Anyway, I take part in a university survey annually for smokers and

    ex smokers. They pay a small stipend to people who do it.

    This year the check was drawn on a Canadian bank. I deposited it

    and have had no problems but I did receive an email from the university

    regarding the checks being rejected for some recipients.

    I emailed back and told them about any previous experience

    I had had and advised to perhaps use a USA bank in the future.

    Seriously don't understand the suspicion for Canadian banks,

    now if the were from, say, Nigeria? Cyprus? Maybe!

    If you guys dont like checks here in america then I suggest to get bank wired the money. It is very fast and easy from my experience. Like at club world they approve, send and I receive in like a few days. Its just as fast as ppl say nettler or money bookers is. I do accrue a fee from my bank of like 15$ or something but the speed and non hassle of it is way better than a check IMO. No other RTG group is as fast as clubworld but the others I have cashed out of all will send bank wire. Some wont on the first cashout but they will after that. I havent played every RTG casino out there but I know that the virtual group will and they are dependable ( a little slow but dependable every time for payments) Club world obviously and lightning fast, mainstreet does also. I assume most all RTGs will have bankwire as an option.

    Considering Online gaming in most US states is considered illegal I wouldn't place the blame on the casino's that are working to pay their players, the scumbags are the bill maker and passers who created UIGEA, don't think many of these casino's have a choice but to deal with the shadier side.

    Is the company who was issued the check data cash or the counting house?

    It will depend on the bank you bank with and the dollar amount of the check. Check your banks terms and conditions.
