    I have 2 Playtech accounts, one of which I opened in CAD without thinking. I play a lot of slots and progressive slots and just realized that the software is charging me 20% exchange rate on progressive games! For instance Wall St. is 50 cents per spin, but it's costing me 60 cents - Cinerama is 30 cents (instead of 25) - Queen of the Pyramids is $1.62 instead of $1.35

    Considering that the exchange rate is a little less than 4% right now, that's ridiculous.

    Anyhow I've contacted the casino to close my CAD account and I'll set up another one in USD. I just wanted to warn my fellow Canucks not to open an account in CAD if you play any progressive games!

    EDIT: I just realized that the games pay out with the same percentage....duh. So nevermind.

    That's a good lesson but it's not your fault. These casinos should learn from Pokerstars.

    I've been thinking about this....If I'm playing Wall Street for 60 cents ($.50+20%) and win $10, the software pays out $12 ($10+20%) so that part's good. BUT....if I won the progressive jackpot, would that also pay out at 20% exchange????? Probably not right? :confused:

    Just FYI

    I got a PM from Phil @ BetFred, paraphrased below:

    So if you have a CAD account at Playtech, you're paying 20% exchange on your bets on progressive games - and although any wins you get in the games are paid out at that same 20%, if you win the progressive jackpot, you'll be paid (today) with only 4.8% exchange.

    Good to know, right?
