    Actually that's not quite right! Lol I was very thrilled to hit a Royal this week at VP, but the gripe I've got is with the withdrawal method.

    Essentially I made a couple of Skrill deposits at the casino, which I lost, then a couple of credit card deposits, and subsequently hit the Royal playing 4 hand power poker. I then tried to withdraw via Skrill, only to be told it had to go back to my last deposit method ie. credit card. When I queried this, I was told it was because of money laundering regulations, which I can't quite understand - if it was OK to deposit with Skrill earlier that evening, why not withdraw to it too?

    Normally I wouldn't have a problem with small withdrawals going back to a card, but this was a large one. The problem I've experienced with credit card payouts in the past is that it takes days to reach the account from the casino, the credit card company gives you a hard time when you've suddenly got a credit balance running into the thousands, and then it takes them more than a week to eventually credit your bank account.

    To be fair, the casino in question has it in their T&C that they refund back to the last deposit method (only found this out subsequently) but I'm just a bit puzzled why there isn't any discretion. Does anyone know if the money laundering reason is valid?

    Thanks!

    Yes it is and it is very common, particularly if the casino is UK, Gibraltar, Isle Of Man or Alderney regulated. I have had withdraws redirected many a time for exactly that reason.

    I had exactly the opposite problem today at PlayHippo (EveryMatrix).

    I'd initially deposited by debit card months ago, when I first joined.
    Made another deposit yesterday by Neteller, and when I requested a withdrawal. They insisted I withdraw to debit card, which was my first deposit method, NOT my most recent

    Actually I wouldn't mind a debit card withdrawal since that would go to my bank account. It's jumping through hoops to get money back via a credit card that I'm not so keen on!

    Casinos shouldn't even be accepting credit cards for deposit, just seems unethical to me.

    But that's where they make their money :eek: Could you imagine if Vegas casinos stopped taking credit cards at ATM's and got rid of their cash advance machines?
