Tips Neteller blocking payments from the UK to Casino Saga

    I have just tried to deposit at Casino Saga, and the transaction was declined.

    Checked with CS and it's apparently because Neteller have now blocked any transaction from the UK to casino saga, who I believe are based in Sweden.

    So I don't know if this affects all Neteller transactions from the UK to Sweden or just transactions from the UK to casino saga.

    I only deposited there 2 days ago, without any problems.

    The transaction details on my Neteller account state "Merchant blocked geolocation"

    To be honest, Casino Saga shouldn't be letting you play as they do not have a license for UK players.

    Have their CS confirmed you are eligible to play?

    I've been playing there since April this year. I didn't have a problem joining and haven't had any problems depositing or withdrawing.

    CS just told me to use a different deposit method

    Sounds ominously like they might be blocking all payments to casinos who are not UK licensed... :eek:
    That will be a real bummer if true - as Neteller is my preferred method at most casinos.
    (Might be a good thing as far as 3Dice is concerned though - as most of my deposits disappear as quickly as a snowball in a furnace there!)

    I just remembered - one of the casinos I promote (not UK licensed) say they can no longer pay me by Neteller - so there could be something in this...

    It does, but it's not very good that Neteller are doing this in secret rather than informing their UK customers of a change in policy and amending their terms and conditions accordingly.

    However, in one way this is a good thing. Some casinos not licenced in the UK could well happily take deposits from UK players, but then use the licencing situation to void any winnings greater than the total of deposits.

    The question remains as to whether this is Neteller's own policy, or signs that the UKGC are now addressing the issue of getting UK based (to include IOM based Neteller UK) financial service providers to block UK players from transacting with non UK licenced casinos. The thinking is probably that this would act as a deterrent, and perhaps alert naïve UK players that they should only be playing at UK licenced casinos.

    If it's UKGC inspired, we may find other deposit methods being closed down for UK players who continue to play at non UK licenced casinos like 3Dice and RTG casinos that are happy to flout the rules.

    Blocked at Inetbet using Neteller. They do a 200% bonus on Sunday. Anyone tried Skrill at Inetbet?

    This is good, something pro-active.

    May seem like a PITA but how many people would be complaining if they were able to deposit then had problems when it came to withdrawing.

    I see this as a good move, if they don't have the licence UK players should not be allowed to join and play anyway.

    On the same stroke I'd like to see verification policies change so that players can verify before depositing instead of running into issues when they get a little bit of luck.

    There is nothing at all on Neteller to tell users that any such policy is in place, nor of course how it operates. This is not good, even though the policy itself is. Players need to know WHY this is happening otherwise the casinos that are being blocked may well try to BS their way into convincing the UK player that it's merely a "technical issue", and nothing to do with the new licencing laws. This would negate the purpose of the policy, which is to prevent unlicensed casinos from taking money from UK players.

    UK players who unwittingly play at unlicensed casinos enjoy no protection whatsoever under the new rules.

    few days ago my transaction to casinoroom declined from neteller, asked casinoroom they said its neteller's problem, asked them n they said merchant has asked us to discontinue payments from the UK

    So both sides in this case were blaming each other as well, also is casinosaga taking UK players?

    Me too at Inetbet Euro mate I was shocked when I found out :( They also refuse when I try visa card deposit at Inetbet Euro it says Management security or something like that So I guess my VIP status at InetBet Euro will now go away as can not deposit and play anymore :(

    Bit of a bummer from me as I though Inetbet Euro was actually licensed uk now. (though how could they be with euros doooooh )

    They are licenced though, and it's still active.

    One of the error messages shown here mentions geolocation, so it very much looks like an attempt to limit UK players to UK licenced casinos. However, if this is also hitting All British, then something has gone wrong.

    Now we have merchants saying the problem is with Neteller, and Neteller saying some merchants have asked Neteller to block UK deposits.

    Now, when it comes to Neteller rewards, some merchants do ask Neteller not to operate this scheme with them, and Neteller show a list of non participating merchants, so what's the big deal with us not being allowed to know what is REALLY behind this sudden occurrence of "geolocation blocking" of deposits?
