I am soo frustrated at this point. Every time I talk to chat I get jerked around. I never get the same answer twice, last week I was told Tuesday, this week it is impossible to tell when I will get it. I am also told it is being held up by the fraud department and being evaluated for playthrough, this when I haven't had a bonus there since it first opened. My deposit was by Visa and my card was charged instantly. But I have to wait god knows how long for the withdrawal.

Just rediculous. I would really like to try the new game but it seems they do not give comps out for inconvenience either.

Yes, I did finally get paid. IT took them about 5-weeks but it made to my bank account via ACH. You will get paid but it takes awhile.

Pixie, Have you contacted Hype_Tristan?
https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/members/
If not, why not? If so, what did he say?
(He's visited here today, but has told me in the past that he has his own reasons for not addressing issues in the open forum. However, I'd hope he would reply to PM's)

Also, have you changed your withdrawal option to 'Bank Wire' and provided your IBAN & BIC numbers?
I know this is a real pain in the butt, but it's the only way you are likely to get paid.

Hi KK,
I have been in contact with kwblue, for some reason I thought he was the rep. I will contact the rep this evening. I have provided them with the ACH info, i've done everything right as far as I can tell. I can understand when problems arise however the way it is being handled is extremely poor. The email that requested my bank info didn't even explain why. My initial withdrawal method was Neteller, and there was still plenty of time to credit my Neteller as they had until April 9th, but they opted to reverse that out and do it the slowest methods possible. My withdrawal was requested March 23rd whick gave them a full two weeks and then some to credit my Neteller account and they did not do so.

I'm not getting paid by Hype either, darkpixie. I've been waiting since January 22. Sent bank info. Email support hasn't helped me. I'm planning to PM Hype_Tristan. I've been patient, but this is getting ridiculous.

Nope, not being paid here either. They assure me that they are processing it though when I talk to them via live chat. I couldn't help but to point out that the proper answer should be "We have no idea what we are doing and can't find a way to process USA payments at this time, please excuse us for being idiots". Heck, I would straight up accept that answer, even I don't go around slapping an idiot when he is down.

Oh and before one of you hype lovers tries to correct me or tell me I am being too hard on them take a step back away from your keyboard, go get a cup of coffee and let this thread die on it's own because you know I am right even if you hate to admit it :).

no luck here either

I am also one of the unlucky Hype winners. Been waiting since february 7th. I've emailed tristan and others with no answers to my emails. I dont think payment is going to happen. I wish i could just write it off as a loss but I really want the money I won!!! Wish they could just be honest about it.

I am truly sorry to hear all of this. :mad:

Since Hype is also listed on www.Allamericansaccepted.com as a 'good' casino, I will go and send my contact an 'immediate' email about these very important issues. I will refer to this thread, so they can see what I am talking about.

Eventough I am quite sure that the Rep here has seen it, it won't harm knocking on the Hype door a bit together with you guys, for you guys!

Because I feel These problems need to be solved asap. As, I am sure they (Hype) want this to be cleared as well.

Maybe, and I sincerely hope so, it will help you guys, as it must be very frustrating not getting what belongs to you.

Any of you guys from the US? This may be the main reason of the 'delay'

Please keep us posted.

Email is send..;)

Just had a little peek at your site - was a bit surprised to see you have iNetBet on there - I thought they didn't take USA players....?

Also, your link for ClubUSA goes to the affy site, not the casino homepage.. :p

Cheers!

Hey, thanks for the heads up!!!! :notworthy I am updating the site as it is and once again, the ClubUSA banner has slipped into a minor mistake. Thanks A LOT!! I will go and change it immediately! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

As to Inetbet:

Here is what they state on their site:

iNetBet Casino has a list of Countries where players may not be able to open an account due to Country bans or IP blocks. This applies to all the Countries listed below; please contact support to see which group the given Country belongs to. For Country bans iNetBet will consider players from these countries if a credit check has been performed. Alternatively if you are in an area where an IP block may be in place please contact support and we will open an account for you.

Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Byelorussia, Bosnia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cost Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Hungary, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Zimbabwe, Denmark, Indonesia, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Yugoslavia.

iNetBet will not allow players under the age of legal majority to gamble at iNetBet.


I do not see anything about restriction counting for the USA...:p

Even better, I found Inetbet accepting Americans thanks to Casino meister!!

The casino is listed to be a Accredited Online Casino with NO restrictions..

This you can see here. They are listed under Real Time Gaming Casinomeister Accredited Online Casinos..

But, thanks again. Do you like my site? I would love some feedback!

We have a forum too and y'all are welcome... lol

Interesting site, I do wish you well with it but I would also cover some of the negative aspects of playing from the USA these days that you don't cover in your forum posts about the casinos. At least with Hype since they happen to be my whipping boy these days. Sure they offer several ways to deposit but only one way to withdraw that I know of "ACH" and it also has a fee attached to it. Nowhere on their site to they mention that if you deposit by say Click2pay that you can not withdraw that way. I think you are opening yourself up to a lot of headaches if you do not cover the negative aspect of what happens after you make a deposit also.

Rettahs makes a valid point, and Mousey has made it before. There are a multitude of forums and websites out there touting deposit methods, and encouraging people to deposit and play. But there is very little coverage making people aware of some of the God awful delays that US players have been experiencing withdrawing winnings. There really should be a disclaimer on every site about playing at your own risk....or at the very least being willing to wait months (in some cases) to get paid, even by reputable casinos. There are problems, and sadly, some are not even aware of them. And not just with Hype, although they seem to be one of the worst of late.

You are correct.

Eventough, I have not had any bad experiences.. so I can not place them on my site. Knowing that the problems are there, it is a must they get known AND acted upon.

I would like to invite anyone to post any of their experiences on the casinos listed on Allamericansaccepted, you can do so on my Link Removed ( Old/Invalid) .

I hope nobody at the Casinomeister team wants to send me a "can of whoop-ass" after inviting you good people to share their knowledge and experiences on my forum. As it is not my intention to .. you know, spam etc.

It may be said that it is undoubtly a fact that the Casinomeister forum is of immense value for any online gambler worldwide.

My forum :confused: (just started) will be (is) dedicated to the American people. And, good valuable input from anyone who likes to is appreciated.

I am not a professional webmaster but I try to do my best to provide All Americans with correct and objective information on the casinos still accepting Americans.

Thanks a lot for your reply! :)

Oh, I highly doubt you want me to post on the site about Hype since you clearly make money when people signup. I don't have anything good to say about that casino at all and in fact I restrain myself here even though I have bashed them a few times it isn't nearly as much as they deserve :).

I just think a small disclaimer about the hassles in general about getting paid may help prevent a ton of negative posts if your site takes off.

I've been watching Rettah's and one or two other Hype Casino cases with growing disappointment over the past weeks.

At first I gave Hype Casino and it's Australian backers the benefit of the doubt on the dramatic slowdown in payments, but some of these cases have now gone on far too long for the situation to be anything less than deeply alarming, and I believe the time has come to issue warnings about Hype and its apparently uncertain payment to players policy.

Several members of this forum who have contact with Hype management and ownership have tried to help players here, and that is definitely respected - but something is clearly very wrong when a casino lets legitimate players hang in limbo for week after week after week without meeting their obligations.

Postscript: For the record, Allamericans in my personal view it is discourteous to abuse the hospitality of your host here by urging members to leave here and visit your own forum to discuss an issue aired here at Casinomeister. No amount of praise for Casinomeister in your post above can disguise what I view as an attempt to benefit yourself by persuading members here to post in your forum.

Agreed.

This underscores the importance of PABing. In this thread there are no less than three players complaining of getting a run-around, slow payments, etc. Yet no one has lodged a formal complaint. I have one PAB from a player who hasn't posted his grievance here - this is already being looked into by Tristan.

The reason for PABing is to solve problems. I usually won't get directly involved until this happens. If enough players PAB then I am obliged to warn others about bad casino practice, fraud, finance problems, rogueness etc. But until this happens, there's not much I can do SINCE I DON'T READ ALL OF THE THREADS!

Please PAB. Thanks!

I totally agree that it would be very discourteous to abuse the hospitality and URGE people to leave here. This is / was not my intention at all.

I never urged anyone to leave here. I was answering to the post made. maybe I should have left out the link. In fact, why not have it taken out of the post?

I am / have become worried about the misbehaviours of some of the casinos I read about here. Am I supposed to just copy and paste all that I find here?

Would it be very hard to try and believe that I am trying to develop a forum FOR the American people and not FOR myself? (Please try and see the difference between a commerical site and the forum.)

Objective information on the forum about the casinos is in fact usefull for the visitors that come and go. And that it is a benefit to them to be able to read about where to go and not to go?

Another solution would be to send allamericansaccepted forum visitors to this forum. And, in fact, I think I will do so.

But, no matter what, Please accept my apologies.

Geoff.

Oh heck CM, I would PAB if I honestly felt it was an issue where I needed assistance (Denial of bonus, statement of broken rules) but with Hype I sort of feel the problem is one that needs to remain in public because their problems affect not just me but anyone from the USA that signs up and deposits there.

I have no doubt if you would step in they would find a magical way to pay me and I do respect your standing in the online gambling world but to me if I were to accept help with this issue it would feel almost like hush money instead of what is truly owed me.

Hello Allamericans Spammer!

You have obviously mistaken the average intelligence of this posting community. That would be bad. Allow me to expand...

There is basically two types of Spammers. You have your 'just go for it' types and you have the 'sneaky' type. You fall into the latter.

jetset said:

That's spot-on. I could go off on a 6 paragraph rant, but the above sentence says it all.

Allamericans said:
Do you like my site? I would love some feedback!

Excellent, because I do in fact have some feedback on the actual site. I'll concentrate on the positive.

The site is vapid. It has nothing one could actually consider 'content'. It's nothing more than a spam attack of banners crammed into a Wordpress template. It must have taken you what, a few days to throw together? It looks like something that would pop up on my desktop after a virus infection. Sir, your English grammar is horrendous! As you would clearly understand if you got to know the community you (supposedly) serve, the majority of online gamblers consist of well-educated people who have the disposable income required to gamble with. Since that is your visitor base, you insult them with middle-school level grammar. For example, on your front page:

"GoldenCasino would like to ensure you have the most enjoyable experience at Golden casino."

That is not an intelligent sentence. First off, the first GoldenCasino is capitalized, but no spacing. That might be proper depending on how that casino represents their name in print. At the end of the sentence, it becomes Golden casino. A space is added, and casino lost a capital letter along the way. Any webmaster knows that consistency is KEY. Pick a format and apply it evenly. Secondly, the sentence itself is redundant in the reference to Golden Casino. Let's go to your blog's most recent post:

"Last Friday, I had one of my best online friends on the phone and after he congratulated me with my big win a few days ago, while ofcourse playing Deuces Wild at my favorite casino Golden casino."

That sentence is disorganized, lacks proper punctuation, and has several fragments. It's a schizo-sentence. If you loaded it into M$ Word and performed a grammar check, your computer would implode. That sentence is acceptable if you are just casually posting on a forum somewhere, and we also see this type of grammar from people outside of the US. However, you are posting this to a (supposed) professional website FOR people who speak English as their native language. Your profile at CM states you are in Europe. I don't care if you're on Mars, if you are going to deliver content to Americans, you had better grasp our language or PAY SOMEONE to proof anything you post. Your posts here at CM have these same blatant grammatical errors littered throughout. Since those same errors pollute your content at your website, it is obvious you write all of the copy for your website. Oh wait... curiously, some sections are void of those obvious errors you consistently inject. I'll deal with that in a minute...

Do you think that maybe for ONE SECOND that Americans might be a little leery of a European running a site in support of Americans? I do. I think that for as much as you try to hide your true intentions, your site actually -screams- "conflict of interest". It's like someone sold you a bottle containing an invisibility potion, and you drink from it before you create or modify your website. Sir, you have been ripped off! The potion doesn't work, and you are quite exposed. Naked in fact. It's embarassing.

Getting back to the content that doesn't appear to have your grammar errors. The article in question is a blog entry regarding Texas Holdem tips. It contains what anyone could term 'webmaster approved English grammar'. But alas, the article was actually written by Ryan Harold. At least you gave him credit, but that's not the point. Here is the point: a successful website is defined by its ORIGINAL CONTENT, period. Ryan's article that you borrowed is the only actual content on your site! The rest of your blog posts are SPAM for... you guessed it... GOLDEN CASINO. After browsing your site, do you know how FARKING TIRED I am at seeing 'Golden Casino' in every other sentence? Do you ever look at your site objectively? No, I didn't think so. You think you are invisible and sneaky. You actually live in this fantasy world where you think you can play it off as a player advocate, and better yet, a US player advocate, but in fact you are nothing but a damned GC Spam Machine. Just a passing thought, but why don't you become an affiliate for them? (please do NOT ANSWER that question. It is sarcastic in nature and self-answering!)

We should stop here.

No wait, let's continue. Let's move to your Forums, the place you'd like us to come to and start posting at. Taking a look at it, one can only draw one conclusion: you simply felt your entire site wasn't SPAMMY enough, so you filled your ENTIRE FORUM with even MORE SPAM. Incredulous!!! Laughably incredulous!

I would be inclined to call you a fool, an idgit, a buffoon, a douche-bag, a charlatan, a pinhead... but I won't. That would be against Forum policy here, and would also compliment you, so I shall refrain from calling you any of those. I'll just call you what obviously suits you, a SPAMMER out for his own gain. I have posted this for one reason. I am my own man. I brown-nose no one. I don't know Bryan personally, and he has done nothing for me other than provide these Forums and 8 years of ORIGINAL CONTENT to peruse. What I am is a PIT-BULL for integrity. Since you have none, you have become my personal chew toy. You will find it incredibly difficult to remove my jaws from your neck.

Finally, you will find that I thanked your post. Why? Was I being a smartass? Nope. We are supposed to thank posts that are helpful or insightful, of which your post was both! You see, it's just as important to know who NOT to take advice from as it is to know who might have unbiased information. You have quite readily and easily revealed yourself as someone every member of CM should AVOID, so I do indeed thank you for that. Let me then sign off in English you will understand.

For you I wish for the day to be possibly the best possible.

PS. Please continue to post crap on your Forums directing people here to CM. It's the ONLY thing your website does that actually provides a useful service. Actually, why don't you just remove the entire spam site and put up a permanent redirect to here? That would be sound thinking, as you suck at webmastering, you suck at English grammar, and you suck at spamming. You need a new hobby mate.

You seem to grasp sarcasm. Good for you. IMO you now have one redeeming quality. The sky's the limit, go for it.

Just remember, we are USA players, and we are damned pissed at all of the problems. When someone of your ilk trots into town to try and make a quick buck off of other's misfortune, be prepared for the wrath. It's despicable to run out and grab a domain name that suggests a haven for US players (the domain was registered right AFTER the bill passed), then trap them into all of that SPAM and promises. It fires me up to know you make money every time you sucker a US player to lose a deposit through one of your SPAM banners or cloaked links. You contribute to the problem by providing no information for player protection and encouraging US players that it's 'easy' to deposit and still gamble online. One last clue for you... this Forum has an area especially for discussions of US issues. You likely cannot see it, as it requires a certain amount of reputation points to participate. Bryan has also completely updated the accredited list and it has US information embedded. Everything we need IS RIGHT HERE, and if it isn't, a quick question posted will get a quick and fairly accurate response from the high quality forum participants around here.

You have no dignity whatsoever. You are no authority on USA -anything- and have no business running a website that requires said authority. Read the description for this Forum carefully:

This is no place for ads or cloaked promos. Shills and spammers be warned

You didn't take the warning very seriously, because you consider us fools and you are smart enough to embed your SPAM. No, and no again, in that order.

Good day.

Okay, let's be cool now.

When I was in the army it was called "baptism by fire." ;) Welcome to the forum Allamericans!

Let's continue the discussion on why we should be worried about Hypegaming payout problems.

I had a PAB the other day that addressed the same thing - I have a response, but that is as far as it went. Waiting for a follow-up.
