    I am trying to cashout at video for first time. I've always been able to use my titanium master card other places but they said no go. That was all I had verified.

    So now I want to verify bank for wire transfer. Wow is this hard to do. A void cheque was no go, a direct deposit document from bank was no go. A bank statement for me doesn't show my full name and banking info either does online for a screen shot.. How did other Canadians hey verified in bank wire?

    They are probably one of the worst casinos to get verified.

    They dont understand that giving them a screenshot from many Canadian banks wont include the things they need. Name and address.

    So then they want a bank statement. Which is even worse for this day and age as most people use online paperless statements. So then you have to order one which costs money and time.

    If you use a prepaid it gets even worse. Your account may become flagged and wont be able to deposit or withdrawal unless you give them a hand written letter.

    Basically you will have to call your bank and ask them for a bank statement that will include your name and address on it. I had to do this. It will cost you $5 usually maybe more and you will have to wait about a week for it to arrive to your home.

    License, copy of credit card and a utility bill is not enough at this casino. Its not something we have been used to for the past decade at other casinos but for whatever reason, this is videoslots policy.

    If you like the casino enough, follow their policy and Im sure they wont bother you again

    For me, I decided not to play there after giving a bank statement, utility bill, government letter and drivers license and was told its not enough.

    Good luck with whatever your decision and dont lose your money back while waiting for your bank details to arrive in the postal mail.

    I used the windows snipping tool whilst logged into my online banking on 2 different pages, this gave all the required details they needed. If you don't have one, I recommend an ecopayz account. If they can see a transaction via ecopayz in the banking transactions it can help.

    Yes it took longer at VS to get verified than some places, but it really is worth the hassle, they are a great casino. It took 6 tries in my case, and 4 days of back and forth, but I am verified now.

    Depends on the bank. I've TD Visa/Instadebit and can't get it to work anywhere, hence my use of prepaid CCs (a head ache at VS)

    I use PaySafe for all my deposits. It's for the better in my case. VSO is very strict in regards to making sure you can legally gamble on their site. It took a few tries to get everything to their standards.

    I definitely have to agree with this. I have never had trouble verifying a casino account until I tried at VideoSlots. I have sent in everything requested but they continue to reject my Instadebit screenshot because it is not my bank statement. This is an interesting objection since there is no way for them to relate a particular bank account to an Instadebit account.

    Very happy to hear that the OP received their rightful winnings and had a better support experience than I did. Perhaps a formal complaint is necessary in my case. I honestly thought this may have been a rogue casino before seeing it was the highest rated on Casinomeister.

    When the bar is set so high for verification, it can make it appear that it has been deliberately designed to be impossible for the player, and thus a construct to enable a rogue casino to use a plausible excuse to wriggle out of paying. This can also cost the casino customers as word gets around as players who had to walk away from their money due to impossible requirements will be telling others to avoid the place.

    Many of the problems are country specific, in Canada this seems to be down to how the banks operate, whereas in the UK players often have problems due to there being no formal national ID card here.

    The fact that other casinos can work with the prepay card solution that many Canadians use because of the hostile attitude to online gambling in the country, but this one can't, is another factor that can make it appear that the casino has deliberately blocked a workable means of players receiving their winnings in order to force their almost impossible verification process onto players.

    Casinos really need to appreciate that in countries like Canada, players do NOT want their banks to get so much as a whiff that online gambling is taking place, so the last thing the casinos should be doing is "prodding the sleeping bear" of Canadian banks by asking players to contact their banks for out of the ordinary documentation. It will surely make banks wonder what is causing their customers to suddenly start asking for "letters" to confirm their bank account details when things within the country work seamlessly with the current way banks present statements to customers.

    Casinos in the US market also "shat in their own back yard" so to speak by causing players there to have to keep on contacting their bank for out of the ordinary reasons, such as asking for codes that customers normally don't need, or insisting on using payment schemes that players know their banks are regarding with suspicion. I am sure that many US facing casinos lost processing routes because they caused players to bombard their banks with odd requests to the extent that the banks took a closer look at the transactions that were causing all the trouble, and thus shut down another processing route, taking the casinos' money with it.

    Paying back to a prepay card keeps the player's bank out of the loop. The worst that can happen to a player is the loss of the prepay card. In the US, some players reported that their banks had frozen their accounts completely, and they couldn't access their salary or pay their bills as well as not being able to receive casino winnings because their banks figured out that they had been receiving casino withdrawals into the account. The way things are going in Canada means that players there could soon face the risk of having their bank accounts frozen under the suspicion that they are transacting with offshore casinos via the account.

    This is not a problem in the UK (provided the casino concerned has a UK licence) as players can openly use their accounts to transact with gambling sites, and can openly tell their bank that they need a "letter" or other out of the ordinary document because they are trying to get verified by a casino for anti-money laundering purposes. The wise UK player would have a separate bank account for "high risk" activity like gambling to minimise any risk to their credit score as some banks take into account the lifestyle spending of their customers when assessing them for a loan or mortgage.

And take 2 to 5 Working day for the money to go into my Desjardins Account (Bank).

    Hey Weatherman... You bring up some excellent points but I do disagree that Canadians are trying, or need to be concerned with, concealing their online gambling activities. I'm no lawyer but I have read through our laws carefully and there is nothing saying that it is illegal to deposit, play, or withdraw from an "offshore" casino.

    The best online casinos actually offer "eCheck" (we call "direct deposit" here) where winnings go straight to your bank account. It is different from a wire in that it is free and instant. I have yet to have my bank question me on any deposit or withdrawal transactions.

    I have total respect for casinos that want to protect their players and ensure winnings are being sent to the right person. However, my experience with email and chat support at VS has me running around in circles with no one seeming to care that I have no way to withdraw winnings.

    The main problem for Canadian players seems to be keeping it from their bank, rather than the authorities, hence the increased reports of deposit problems from Canada as some card providers have tightened the blocking rules in an effort to weed out the gambling transactions.

    It's worse in the US, but Quebec may end up with similarly draconian laws, which may include a US style legal responsibility being imposed upon banks to identify and block "illegal gambling transactions". The rest of Canada may well follow suit if the new laws are a success in Quebec, especially if an increase in government revenue results.

    The problem this player has seems to be that they are using a prepaid card that SHOULD be fine for withdrawals too, and is so everywhere else they have played apart from Videoslots. This would suggest that the problem lies with Videoslots, rather than the card company, as the other casinos have been able to pay back to the card.
    In addition, for this player, sending the withdrawal to their card would be painless, no hoops to jump through, but it seems that Videoslots are insisting on paying to the bank, and won't do so until they have received reams of documentation from the player, some of which has to be obtained by special request from the bank as it's not part of the regular documentation sent to customers. This is the kind of thing that can look like a contrived tactic to make receiving the money as difficult as possible without descending into the realms of rogue practice. This is also the kind of high risk situation that leads to players blowing back their win and thus having their view of the casino soured.

    Actually, at no casino can you pay back to the prepaid credit cards, being one-time, non loadable and disposable.
    The major VS complaint with prepaids is them expecting affidavits of ownsership when peeps simply chuck them out once used.

    The OP claims that they have been able to use their card at other places, but hit a problem at Videoslots. If it's impossible to pay back to this card, it would be impossible everywhere else too.

    It seems they have a whole row of hoops when it comes to paying back to the alternative, the players' bank, and are asking the player to get certain documents from their bank by special request, rather than working with the documentation the banks routinely send out. It seems the same philosophy is being used for non reloadable cards too. They are never "owned" as such, they are like cash, and if I spend a fiver in a shop, I cannot prove some weeks later that the fiver belonged to me if the shop questions it. It's similar with a one time use voucher or non reloadable card, they are discarded after use as a matter of routine, and original ownership can never be proved. Someone could find, even steal, a single use card or voucher, and being able to prove they possess the article in no way proves ownership of the funds behind it.
