    Just got an email form SkyVegas, They take the biscuit at the best of times - now this... :axeman2:


    Service Announcement: Neteller and Skrill deposits on Sky Bet

    Following positive feedback on our mobile account services, we're currently upgrading our desktop version of Sky Bet in order to match. As part of this process we've reviewed our banking operations and unfortunately it is no longer sustainable for us to support payments via Neteller and Skrill.

    We're contacting you directly as our records indicate you've used one of these methods with us in the past. Over the next couple of weeks the ability to use these methods will be removed. If you'd like to review your current payment methods or withdraw to Neteller or Skrill before our desktop upgrades are complete please click here (available on Desktop only; log in required).
    Please note that we continue to support deposits from all major credit and debit cards, as well as via PayPal. For more information please see here.



    :lolup: Still accept all major credit cards, well that's Jolly nice of them, oh sorry, I meant archaic!!!!!!!!!

    Yup got it too...
    For me a reason to close my account with them as I only use Skrill.
    And I don't use Paypal either as I am very happy with Skrill.

    Just have to check if this also applies to Sky Vegas as it only mentions Sky Bet in the e-mail.

    Sky Bet, Sky Vegas and Sky Poker all use the same my account and deposit/withdrawal pages and systems, so I'm pretty sure this will apply to all. I too will be closing my account in protest at this decision, its ridiculous - and I have NEVER requested an account closure before!!

    It comes down to fees.

    In the beginning, webwallets were a cheaper alternative to credit cards, as well as shifting much of the risk to the webwallet company. Now, it appears that credit cards are cheaper even considering the extra risk.

    I think we may see more of this, or at least some extra fees for withdrawals and deposits.

    If the webwallets hadn't become so greedy none of this would be happening.

    Well, that's just plain nuts. Those are probably the two most popular depositing methods (besides Credit Cards). I'm sure a lot of players only have those two methods set up to do business with casinos.

    One of the main reasons my favorite casino for wms slots was sky vegas. Because if i won i could withdraw via neteller and have the cash within 15 minutes and deposit on another gambling site without using my debit card. Avoiding embarrassing casino name all over my bank statement. But after i got the email today i am thinking to not play there as much anymore.

    Does anybody else know any sites that have wms that process neteller withdrawals within the hour?
    I know guts are getting wms slots soon but haven't had a withdrawal on there yet although i have heard there quite speedy with withdrawals.

    I got confirmation that this is in place for the whole Sky casino website...
    So I was very sorry to inform them I had to close my account with them...
    I think this is gonna backfire and might be a costly decision from Sky...
    CS rep of course could not give me a valid reason for this decision,all he said is was a decision from managment and that they already had a ton of players not happy with this...

    A darn shame as it is a great casino with great choice of slots and prompt payments to Skrill. :cool:

    Just a quick quote from CS rep:

    :confused::confused::confused:

    Anyway,closed my account for now.
    Maybe if the come back to their senses in the future the rep told me I can reopen it at any time.

    As I had only positive experiences with them in the past but this decision doesn't make sense to me.

    William Hill have wms and process immediately to webwallets.

    I didnt know they charge casino's too. :eek::eek::eek:

    I get charged 9.9 % by netelller to top up with paysafecard, in fact there are charges all over the place especially if I dare use my neteller card.

    ohhh
    Funny, I just got an email telling me I have free money waiting in my sky vegas account. Hmm :confused:

    I just emailed them back and kindly told them to take a hike. And informed them I am happy that we have Bet365 (better bookmaker) and Paddy Power and also other Casinos to play at. They will not be miss from my side. No more of their nice promotions anyways. I did like their quick withdrawals though.

    Yeah, it's 6hrs to PayPal or Neteller with Hills.

    I've asked them about flushing before. Couldn't do it (although that was over a year ago so may have changed).

    There is William Hill Casino Club and there is William Hill Casino (part of the main site). I don't play there anymore but the main site never used to have pending in place while Casino Club dragged it out for up to 48 hrs. I think I am right in saying the latter was set up as part of the now defunct Playtech JV and is run independently from WH itself. So are you saying the main site now has a pending period and if so, how long can I ask?

    On the original topic that's a bit of a strange one IMO. They must have done their maths though - clearly was no longer profitable.

    All withdrawals on William hill main site for sports, vegas, games etc have a pending period.

    If you withdraw to any method it stays pending till 11pm before it gets processed or at weekends it stays till 11pm on the sunday night.

    If your withdrawal is to neteller it normally goes into account between 11 and 12 at night.

    The plus side tho is William hill now have a great selection of both microgaming and netent slots so they have more variety than they ever did with probably the best sports betting sites on the net.

    The operators are blind to this. Despite it being legal, the UK banks are trying to deter customers from making gambling transactions because of the risk that they will be lumbered with the bad debt.

    I can't see how the new UK regulations are responsible for an impending ban on the use of web wallets by UK players. For a long time we have seen operators moving to deter players from using these web wallets, normally by banning web wallet users from some or all of the promotions. This is a new low however, banning their use completely.

    With the banks putting the squeeze on too, the operators may well find the players that stick around end up depositing less simply because it has become so hard to make deposits, rather than because of a reduction in their budget.

    Even losing "a ton of players" does not impress them, so let them lose these players, and then let them find the remainder having a steadily harder time getting the deposits through on their bank cards.

    Yeah that's true. Most months my debit cards gets blocked by my bank and its so embarrassing and frustrating to have to phone them up and confirm all the silly named gambling transactions with them before they unblock the card.

    This is the problem I faced when using a mix of cards and a couple of web wallets. I ditched Click2pay as it suddenly started doing some dodgy stuff to inflate it's fees, and I was driven away from using cards by the constant problems with banks and gambling transactions. I have now settled on Neteller, and ONE card that I use to refill Neteller when necessary that does not seem to keep running into problems with the banks.

    A big part of the problem with cards is that casinos refuse to upgrade their systems to the newer "3D secure" or "Verified by VISA" systems that the majority of online retail has now adopted. In the view of banks, this leaves them exposed to fraud, and here in the UK, the customer is protected by law from the consequences of fraud caused by shortcomings in the banks' and retailers' processing systems, hence transactions that do not go through these dual layer systems and rely ONLY on the details as printed on the cards are run through some pretty "trigger happy" detection and blocking algorithms. These seem to have the most impact on GENUINE gambling transactions being identified as "suspicious" and blocked.
