think youre lying and you were playing fraudulently most likely, you write in a weird way acting over ignorant
what slot were you playing

I would guess that the reason you chose to play there was not "I'm bored of my usual casinos I want to go through the verification bullshit at some new Curaçao casino because reasons" rather they probably had some unique games that you found a way to get an advantage
Personally I think the OP is on Gamstop

You state that your initial deposit was GBP450. That is not a high-roller deposit by any stretch of the imagination. So were you on a depositing, losing, depositing, losing cycle?

I must admit, on a deposit of that size, your gameplay does seem strange.

So are you willing to share what your overall deposits totalled? And perhaps also the winnings that you are being denied?

Sorry if you think I write in an ignorant way, I have autism and have only ever told the truth in everything I have said here and to the casino. Lying is not in my nature. I am now put off by coming on here as this has been upsetting enough and I just came here to get some help or support.

The firstgames when I purchased feature at say, £10, I could have won £700 or such ( can't remember exact game logs) so then would do a £200 feature purchase and have a good win from that. When i got up to up to £7,000, I started doing feature purchase in the region of £100+ per feature.. I ended up with really good spins and really bad spins but I didn't need to deposit any more as my bankroll kept up.

I hate seeing threads like this one, its hard enough to get ahead these days never mind winning a decent amount and then comes all this BS on top!

From how I digested your OP, the chat / support describe your situation as mirroring fraud cases and not directly accusing you of such.

This being said, I would be interested to know what fable or myth they come up with to keep the ban in place and withhold your winnings, as your rightly confident about will be no case to answer to when it comes to fraud accusations.

I know the horse has bolted now but if ever I was in a position to become a regular hi-roller, I would be 10x more vigilant than I am now when it comes to choosing where to play and trust me, I'm a fussy bugger!

Unlikely, however I wish you best of luck in securing a favorable outcome on this one, keep us posted please!

Just say what slot you were playing? Or have they removed it now after discovering you cheated?

I haven't cheated in any way shape or form!

The slot games were Chilli Pop and TNT Tumble.
OH OK sorry. In that case I believe you as they are on many websites.
I was just really sceptical after your first post some subtle things

Well shit, I hope the fuckers burn in hell or you get your money

A rep for one of the accredited casinos (sorry, but I can't remember which one) stated something along the lines of very large wins from smallish deposits are scrutinised thoroughly - although again, I think the rep actually made reference to a currency deposit of around 25 GBP/$/Eu.

That could simply be the case here. I hope it is, and you do end up getting your winnings.

To add:

TBH, that is the way I play as well. Once I start winning, I increase my bet size, sometimes to stupid levels. Sometimes it pays off. Sometimes it doesn't. No fraud involved at all. And so far - fingers crossed - I have not yet been accused of anything.

Anyway, good luck.

I was around the £50k mark when they blocked me. They said this was impossible from a £450 deposit. But it obviously isn't impossible because it happened. :what:

Jesus. 50k, that's an absolute no-no and way past the amount that triggers their default fraudster mode. You'll have supposed rules breaches, if you haven't then they'll change the terms retrospectively to justify stealing the winnings. If they can't do this credibly, you'll get 'security' delays in the hope you spunk it all back, in the meantime. If you really are one of these awkward buggers that actually wants to retrieve their winnings and does insist on being paid, the CS will ignore you then summarily close your account. The whole enterprise is at best tax-dodging and at worst unlicensed criminal money laundering and fraud. Curacao is a black hole for tens of millions of illicitly gained money from other countries' citizens.

EDIT - Chilli Pop, a Betsoft slot. There's a surprise. Like their E.European friends Pragmatic, alas they ain't fussy as to whom they provide their slots and allow them to be used by people who take unlicensed deposits to play them.

Also, £450 in one go IS a high roller deposit amount. That's a quarter of the average UK salary.

At this point, they suspect fraudulent play - IF they are trustworthy, they'll have given you an honest answer, and won't give any information until they've concluded their investigation. This is Correct.

But as they're not trustworthy, you want to hope they find in your favour. As otherwise you've lost, and you've got no comeback.

(Strictly, if they are still part of PornHub, you could complain to their directors, as they ARE a reputable company. But I'm sure I've read somewhere that they sold their interest in the casino sites a while back.)

Horrible story and I feel for the OP. Dunover is absolutely right, and as mentioned above - please stick to the accredited casinos on this site. I am not sure if a lawyer could offer any help, considering they're crooks and possibly connected to a large mafia network.

The slot games were Chilli Pop and TNT Tumble.

Here a few details:

PlayHub and Usoftgaming - countries: Curacao, Cyprus, Costa Rica and some country of the former USSR.

As all of these shisters are using a Cypriot company to process payments. PlayHub's cover is Pulsion Processing Ltd. It was registered on 10th Oct 2019 (probably after they had to close the last rogue operation) and has a company Panlegal Limited as only shareholder.

There are three Panlegal companies registered in Cyprus

Panlegal Limited and Panlegal Secretarial Services Limited
Director is ΣΟΥΖΑΝ ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΑ / Souzan Macedonia .in Greek
Secretary is a Michael Chambers who also owns the lawyer firm Michael Chambers & Co. LLC in Cyprus.

Panlegal Management Limited
Director is Vadim Esipovich (the connection to the former USSR)

All four companies - Pulsion Processing Ltd., Panlegal Limited, Panlegal Management Limited and Michael Chambers & Co LLC share the same address.

You do the maths. :D That sounds to me like a perfect set-up for a rogue operation to fleece undoubting players. I really don't want to go any deeper as it just gets worse and worse. And any kind of request from players to get paid will be probably laughed off.

Thank you for that Harry - it is indeed Pulsion Processing Ltd that shows on my statement. They also asked me to provide a screenshot of my statement showing the money going out to them, which I duly did, at the time of verification.
They told me verification would take 5-8 days hence why I continued spending my bankroll. I had an additional request for a passport/selfie so I thought this was a good sign they were proceeding with my verification. I worked my way up their Swagger Levels to "Gold" and was about to hit "Ruby' meaning £20k withdrawals were allowed a month.

There is a high chance I would have spunked the lot to be honest given the amount of time involved. But when it got to serious life changing sums I had to give myself a reality check and started making real plans for this money. I am very upset. :( Just clinging on to a glimmer of hope that this will turn out OK.

This is exactly what I did/do LadyHawke. Thank you, this gives me a glimmer of hope and as another member has pointed out, so far this is just an accusation and they are going to come back to me when they have completed their 'checks'.....:rolleyes:

not picking an argument about the Eu but if this is southern cyprus why can these bandits get away with this so easily, I think also morally [though sadly not in reality] he should be able to sue the software company who made the slots, it's their product he was playing. As effectively they are helping/enabling fraudsters, without the slots they can't pull off scams. Imagine if it was a physical casino, surely the slot makers would stop supplying the machines.

This could be a way ukgc and mga could affect the curacao situation, by making it part of the licence provisions on a slot maker not to supply xyz casinos in unlicensed jurisdictions, even sister and shell companies?

Mack - thats another thing I don't fully understand - they will toss the accusation around about me somehow "cheating" the slots... but these are their own slots that they host and surely, audit - are they then indirectly admitting their slots aren't safe and are able to be hacked somehow?

I will take this as far as I need to in terms of a resolution so contacting the slots software company is not something I'll rule out.

Do you think them looking at my game logs will show them categorically that I have not cheated? They will see my balance steadily going up AND down during my hours of play? Or will they just make up some other reason to void my account and hope thats the end of it?

Are you naive or just kind-hearted mate? :D

The legal jurisdiction applying to the casino is Curacao, good luck getting anything out of there! :oops:

You do know that some game providers have two names, one for MGA/UKGC and one for "grey markets". Same games just different names and graphics. It would be the easiest to circumvent.

BTW, MGA is asking casinos that want an MGA licence to list only game suppliers who also have an MGA licence. So something like that is already happening, but how far can a regulator go before it becomes communism-style?
