Hi all,

On October 18th of this month I opened a MyPaylinQ account because I found that out of over $4400 I had won at a casino could only be withdrawn at $895 per week, via MoneyGram. Wire transfer and courier check were not available to me in my State. The rep at the casino said all I had to do is go open an account and make a small deposit to the casino of $25, then up to $2500 of my funds could be sent to me via this method as well. All sounded good. I signed up, made my deposit, withdrew my money from the casino, then got smacked in the head with bad news. A new account can only withdraw $200 max for the first 30 days. I still think it's bullshit that an e-wallet can basically use your money for the first 30 days.

Maybe I could have read a bit closer, but figured an E-wallet would work like QuickTender had in the past. Anyway, this thread is just to put people on notice that there is another BS way us in the USA have to put up with our funds being delayed. If anyone has a way to apply pressure to make these people realize that this is a really crappy way of doing business, quite clearly catering to the casinos need to have customers reverse withdrawals, as this is clearly a tactic.

I'll take this a step further. Any accredited casino that allows and accepts this way of doing business should not be accredited. They all know that money can easily be transferred in and out and you might as well be playing a rogue casino that take 30 days to pay. They have the ability to stand up and help nix this BS rule.

I understand that you're frustrated. It isn't a very good situation, and I empathise with you.

However, I think the reason you are in this situation is down to you, and not the casino or even the ewallet.

In the first instance, you should have confirmed with the casino which withdrawal methods were available to you....this is especially true given you are from the USA.

In the second instance, you should have checked out the new ewallet properly by reading the FAQ/terms or asking in the forums etc. I know I wouldn't want $4k of my money going to some third party that I knew nothing about.

Clearly the casino has done nothing wrong here. The fact that you're cashout options are limited is down to your location, as I'm sure you know.

The ewallet terms suck I agree, but you agreed to them when you created the account.

It's going way too far to suggest that accredited casinos should lose their status if they offer this method.....from what I read, many players use it with no problems, and I don't see how providing as many options as possible for the player is a bad thing. I'm thinking you're saying this because you're angry, as I don't think its a good idea at all.

I'm not trying to rub it in your face, I'm just highlighting, to provide a balance to the argument, that your personal choices are the main cause of your predicament. There's nothing wrong with being pissed about it, but pointing the finger at the casinos just isn't right.....its your politicians you should be screaming at.

Good luck. I have an account there. If you get your money at the 31 day mark consider yourself lucky. No longer use them. Hope it works out for you! Very frustrating
