I do like this mate.

so if I win £100,000 and attempted to withdraw this money but then Ladbrokes would obviously do the required source off funds check definitely. So what happens if that money come from illegal sources/ money laundering for example and they let me deposit £43k without source of funds what would happen? I know exactly what would happen they would be fined by the Ukgc.
So that’s why these casino have threshold limits in place to prevent this which didn’t happen in my case
You're missing one big point, they did a SoW check on you, which you haven't responded to. You are going to have major problems getting anywhere unless you do that, if you can't afford it, or the money isn't clean, then you would have more of a chance of winning.
What did the ADR say?

Good idea mate I will see you if a few years with my 1.7 million!!!

To be serious for me it’s not about the money I really don’t care about that but I do want to see what happens as if I was a person who only had £43,000 life savings in my account then lost that under one hour I would definitely say it’s very irresponsible by Ladbrokes to be allowed to do this.
I will let you know the outcome

Ok mate. You don't really care, but have started two similar topics about it a month apart.

Yeah, that screams I don't really care. :p

All my money is all above above board but that’s not the point. The point is they didn’t do reasonable checks

Mate I am at home because of covid, so I have plenty of time on my hands for sure so I have created these. I have plenty of money even though that’s none of you’re business tbh
I am the sort of person who likes to investigate these challenges and see what the outcome brings

Well, you won't see any real outcome bitching about it here. No one seems to agree with you, so there's that. Just not the outcome you hoped for. Maybe if you start a third topic about it. I mean third time's the charm. :D

So you think it’s normal for a new account to be allowed to deposit £43,000 is that responsible from Ladbrokes? I am talking about Ladbrokes duty off care mate

And just because of very small amount of people keep crying these "duty of care" things, all players get more and more limited and get more and more shit with SOW:s and other stuff.

For most it's enough duty of care to allow gambling only for adults, if you as adult can't be responsible of your actions, you would need somebody to look after your finances, not let you to handle anything sharp or ever hold gun etc... probably safest way would be some round room in certain type of care home.

Fcking great if because of these "badly treated people who are robbed by casinos" cause these limits and verifications for everyone, fcking cool that if somebody do have bit more money than average, you are not allowed to gamble in level you want because of small part of people don't accept they can lose and start to cry their losses back.

Happily there are very few occasions when this has happened, UKGC don't have issues to give quite big penalties for these companies, happily it's very uncommon that these fraud people who keep trying to claim their losses back, would get anything as GC knows very well that one their decision for refund cause 10k+ demands for same on very same day when these people read about it.

Yes Colin as it says the safer gambling team at Ladbrokes later that day after my £43,000 deposits reviewed my account and restricted my account but this should have been done before. Why do you think these threshold limits came in for £2000 and after that customers are required to complete source of funds checks

Ask your solicitor who is the specialist after all. Why even ask for advise and opinions here?

If one thing's become crystal clear it's that abs321 should just never ever gamble again.

Everyone else has a duty of care but not my man abs321. I'm beginning to think you're just trolling, because this is getting a bit silly. I mean you are an adult right?

Where you got to your head that casino is not allowed to accept over £2-3k deposits before SOW/SOF is completed? It must be very well hidden as any casinos can't find and follow that.

There's nothing mentioned that deposits above 2k can't be accepted without SOW/SOF, it might not in many cases be ok to pay you withdrawal before verification is completed but that's total BS that casinos can't take more of your deposits (like in almost any SOW thread in this forum you can see how commonly it's wondered how they still can accept deposits even they don't process withdrawals and also that it's exactly how it's made by UKGC).

These threads make you want to bang your head against a wall. We’re all suffering because the smallest minority of gamblers want to blow 5 figures in a matter of minutes and then have the temerity to blame the casino and ask for their money back.

Take some responsibility for your actions, accept the loss then move on. Is it too much to ask for people to take a modicum of personal responsibility for their actions?

Whatever happened to ‘Yep, I fucked up, won’t do that again’?

You lost it within 30 minutes, do you think they have someone sitting there watching every account, in the early hours of the morning, in case they make a deposit?
If your solicitor told you about the £2000 threshold limit then they have to do a SoW, then I suggest you get one who knows what he is talking about, there is no such threshold, nor do casinos have to use them for SoW/SoF checks.

Every casino has a threshold on deposits and source off funds checks because of money laundering etc. That’s the law and they have to abide by this Colin.
We will see anyway what happens sadly I have to go now emmerdale is on in five minutes

Pretty sure Zac Dingle knows more about the AML than your solicitor though.

Casino irresponsible? Maybe!
casino over zealous? Theirs another thread about that!
if you had of won and withdrew 100.000 would you be complaining? I highly doubt it!you chose to deposit the second a larger amount? Seek gambling related addiction help not waste your life in gambling forums
Lol had he won they would of frozen the account, 10k is normally the threshold of blocked account & so it should be.
