Let me preface this by saying that I have had a long standing issue with 3Dice regarding finance.

I had received an E-mail over a month ago asking me not to deposit and withdraw so much as my transaction cost was 500.00 since October. You see I play, win 30 to 40 percent of my deposit then withdraw. I would somtimes depsoit 3 times a week. I am also on the better side of the variance right now, so of course I am "up". Alot. To me anyways.

They asked to hold my money in my account until the next time I play to hold down transactions costs, in my book, it read were hoping you play your money back and LOSE!!!

Bob in finance also stated that he would set up a new feature called the safe for me, so if I didn't want to have a balance after each session I could park my money there instead of withdrawing, and would still keep my limit of 700.00 a week in tack. Great, just another way to keep my money in the casino without withdrawing.

I used it the 1st night, and of course there were software issues. After spending half the night with live chat, I had become disgusted and cashed out my remaining money.

I have now tried to re-open my account with no response for 2 days, guess they don't want my business.

The reason I am telling you all of this, is there are 2 sides to this casino. The one that loves the depositors who lose, and the one that ignores those who have had only 3 losing sessions since october.

Enzo, your casino has busted the silver lining that alot of have had for you and your casino.

I understand where you coming from MarkJacob, I do the same thing. I think what they mean is (because I do this) when you do a bunch of small cashouts instead of waiting till it gets bigger, it costs more money to keep doing it. Ive been told the same thing before because I do a bunch of $50 ones . I think the problem is (well they solved it now with parking) that 3 dice approve the requests so fast there is no time to alter it.....ie...at an RTG, I w/d everytime I get to $50 with $20 left over (actually $70 ) and everytime I win another $50, I cancel my w/d request and immediatley add the new $50 to make it a $100 and so on BUT 3 dice is too fast lol.

I think parking it will be a great advantage, they really dont have the "maybe theyll cancel and lose it" mentality. I am not defending them, Im just giving a different outlook on the situation. I should show you my w/d requests at Inet over the weekend, I cancelled and added to it atleast 6 times. I really thought I was going to get an email saying "WTF are you doing?" lol

I hope you can sort this out.

Tried to install 3Dice but no go.....checked the system requirements and found it requires a 3D video card, which my oldie moldy computer does not have. Felt kind of bummed about that.:oops: I am sure once my old dinosaur quits on me I will get a new fangled multimedia monster that will work with 3Dice. Let's hope the gambling gods are with me and US is still allowed!:D

I had no idea that frequent deposit/withdrawal MO could be frowned upon by casinos :( that's what I usually do: deposit a little, lose it, deposit twice the amount that I lost, recover total deposit if I am lucky, withdraw all, start over. Sometimes several times a day. It never came to my head that it makes any difference to casinos, or they care - as long as I play and do not create any problems.

I signed up with 3D only 3 or 4 days ago, and my transactions 'history' is already more than a page long. Support (I chatted with Ron once, to understand better some banking matters) was beyond praise though! :thumbsup:

Sorry
Forgot to say something because I was focusing on the issue rather than the title of the thread. I feel the title of this thread is inappropiate and maybe you can rethink that part and ask Max to put a different title like "frequent w/d problems" or something like that because their policy has nothing to do with the high level of customer service they give, really, they are attentive and I have even stated many times that I only cashout about once every 3 months, so Im not saying this because Ive so much off of them.

Just something to reconsider, I think you would get more help and support if the title wasnt so harsh

Seems to me they asked you not to withdraw so much and then worked out a way around it and you withdrew again. If you dont want to do it their way why deposit again?
Whatever your reasons they did not provide you lousy service and its wrong to say that because its not true. 3Dice has the best service i have ever seen and i have played in hundreds of online casinos for 10 years. I hope any new players who read this will also read the dozens of threads discussing what a great casino 3Dice is.

I have an old moldy computer too...lol...it works fine for me, (I am almost possitive we don't have a 3D video card, unless it was in the computer when we got it like 10 years ago?) except tonight, having some issues logging on and the reels keep spinning (like RTG)

Hi Markajacob,

As Bob tried to explain to you already, the entire situation has nothing at all to do with you winning at 3Dice. (we mentioned that we hoped you would win for a long time to come in one of the initial emails.). We simply found ourselves in a situation where in the long term, all parties involved would be losing (except for the processors). Put differently, other players were paying simply to cover the transaction costs generated on your account.

Instead of closing your account, I decided to see if we could do something that would help the handful of players including yourself that were responsible for these exuberant transaction costs limit those costs and return some balance to the situation. For this, we implemented the 3Dice safe, intended to be a withdraw method without any costs that allows you to get your wins out of your balance, can be protected for reversals and even falls under any applicable deposit limits. The actual withdraw can then be made from the 3Dice safe after you collect some funds in there. (all to make sure, allow me to stress, that this is not about 'losing back winnings' - quite to the contrary.).

You were indeed one of the first to have this option enabled on your account and with it being brand new some things indeed needed to be worked out. I do (and did) apologize for the inconvenience caused by that, and I regret that it lead you to request your account to be closed.

Once an account is closed at 3Dice (especially if by user request), we have a strict procedure to follow for any further activity on the account. The start of this procedure is a 3 day cool-down period, followed by a request for motivation as re-opening an account is only meaningful if there are reasons to believe a successful customer relationship is indeed possible.

In the mean time, the 3Dice safe has proven to be a very viable solution and a great tool to reduce the transaction costs on accounts of regular players. (reducing transaction costs quite directly translates into more comps .. ) - we may even consider enabling the 3Dice safe for all 3Dice accounts.

I regret that you feel the way you do about our c/s, and I hope you understand the need for a cool-down period when re-opening accounts. You should expect to get follow up on your re-open request shortly, and I do hope that together we can come to the conclusion that we both feel a successful future customer relationship is indeed feasible !

Kindest regards,

Enzo

Kudos to 3Dice for the kind and considerate reply to Markajacob.
They didn't have to respond to you here at all and could have just refused to consider re-opening your account. I don't think anyone would have blamed them if they had.


I can understand Markajacob's unhappiness with his situation but the thread title was inflammatory and most likely very undeserved. It's never a good idea to post something in a public forum when you are angry. It's best we give ourselves a cooling off period. I also think it's worth mentioning that when the casino is one who has a good reputation on here and is responsive by being visible on the forum that it would be best to take it private first.

The problem here is that other casinos treat this differently, there have been cases where players have used the reversal delay at casinos as a "safe", just to keep their winnings out of temptations way. Rather than then go to bed with a load of little $50 withdrawals in waiting, some have reversed the lot and made one big withdrawal, which they know both saves the casinos processing costs, and is more convenient to the player as they don't end up with a load of transactions at THEIR end.

Their "reward" for this?

You've guessed it, BONUS ABUSE, or "manipulation" of the games. This has lead players to believe that casinos don't WANT players to think about the casinos costs, they just want them to NOT practive this kind of "responsible bankroll management" as they know this type of player is doing so with the full intention of NOT going "on tilt", thus rendering much of the psychological and marketing trickery redundant.

More pressing is the problem at Casino Action, this will result in a distinct unwillingness to leave funds in the hands of even the most REPUTABLE casino group, even for a few hours (remember last week, "business as usual" in the morning, and bust by afternoon, with funds trapped).

For the safe idea to work, it has to be beta tested by a few players, those who triggered it's development in the first place. Further, an incentive scheme linked to the comps scheme should reward keeping funds in the safe.
This leads onto yet another problem. Those casinos that ALREADY have this "safe" because they are a sportsbook, do NOT reward casino players for using the sports wallet as a "safe" rather than making a full withdrawal, indeed they often PUNISH this behaviour, by accusing the player of doing this to "abuse promotions". Ladbrokes levied this exact accusation at ME when I thought it best NOT to deposit & withdraw the funds each day for their scratchcards, they insisted they wanted money to come in from the deposit method, which, of course, meant it had to be withdrawn from the sportsbook "safe". This resulted in far greater transaction costs for them, yet it did NOT make the SLIGHTEST DIFFERENCE to the advantage, or not, that the player had in playing the promotion, BUT, it enabled players to closely control their play by keeping some of the money out of the casino lobby, and to deposit even if their deposit method itself was out of action (empty, or on "scheduled maintenance").

3Dice will have to sell this "safe" idea as just that, with there being no ulterior motive behind it. One thing that would help would be to clearly treat "deposits" from the safe as "new money", and not tell players they CANNOT qualify for a promotion because they elected to use the safe to store the money, rather than withdraw it altogether. The only real promotion affected is the enhanced comps redemption that is offered if they are added to a next deposit, rather than being played as a free chip, or simply cashed and withdrawn.

I don't understand this part.

Because someone is doing many transactions, other plays have to pay how? By not winning?

I "think" what he meant (im not sure) that if they didnt have to pay so many transaction fees then there would be more money in the budget for giving out bigger or more bonuses

Thanks everybody for their replies especially VWM and Enzo. Maybe I should have said MY PERSONAL LOUSY EXPERIENCE WITH 3DICE, because I believe if you pm or e-mail a casino for 2 days with no reply, it is lousy cs.

I am well aware of their reputation on this forum, it is the reason that I played there to begin with.I don't think for one minute that that Enzo doesn't care about his players more than most for one minute, just an unusual take on a player who was winning for months.

I am sure this will all work out, there was some very good feedback that I will consider.

Thank you all.

Thank you for your post, but I did pm, and e-mail support for 2 days with no answer. Hence the post.

I think the 'safe' concept is good and workable and I doubt whether 3Dice would tarnish its reputation by using it to the detriment of players. What does Simmo have to say about this?

Mrakjacob, other than the title which wasnt appropriate, I am glad you brought this up because this alternative can give both players and casinos something to choose between flushing of withdrawals and placing them in reversible mode. Many players dont really mind having the money remain in the casino accounts but feel that the willpower to resist going back and lose everything back.

*I have NO understanding how casinos work*

Hi Just Play, thank you for your feedback .. the house edge is what makes the casino money. From it, we have to pay our servers, staff, transaction costs, and comp the players. Our fast no bullshit withdraws are part of the reason that transaction costs are the biggest cut of the total cost. If we look at the complete user base, we see that most of the players generate enough play to cover for their own transaction costs, but a small minority does not. They generate more costs than their play (not their wins or losses!) will ever make up for so these costs end up being paid by 3Dice, and lets not be naive .. that means the other players. (there will be less bonus budget from them as part of the house edge generated by them will need to be used to cover those transaction costs.)

The problem here is that other casinos treat this differently, there have been cases where players have used the reversal delay at casinos as a "safe", just to keep their winnings out of temptations way.

Hi VinylWeatherMan,

Thank you for your extensive feedback !

We do not want to change how 3Dice withdraws work, a withdraw is a withdraw and it gets processed as soon as humanly possible. Not doing so is the equivalent of holding people at the door of the casino. But as you mention, there are two reasons to make a withdraw. There's the obvious reason where you want to get the cash in your hands to go and spend it :). And there's the aspect of it where a player is uncomfortable staying in the casino with all those chips in his pocket and would rather have some of them secured. A withdraw is one way of doing that, and the 3Dice safe will be a cost fee alternative. Using a cost free alternative as opposed to an expensive withdraw will obviously mean more free drinks in the long term ..

We will do our best to make this as transparent as possible to our players, and those that prefer actual withdraws as opposed to the safe will still be allowed to do so, although it will be clear that this has an impact on bonuses and in extreme cases a part of the transaction cost may end up being for the player. (We're prepared to go without theoretical profit on an account - but we're not prepared to have other players pay for it !). Some details will still need to be worked out, and I appreciate the feedback from everyone !

Kindest regards,

Enzo

Thank you JP for the input!

Tried again to install, same problem as before. Emailed the bug report to 3Dice and received a reply from 3Dice ack. receipt within 10 minutes! Now that strikes me as exceptional CS! :thumbsup:

I may get to play at 3Dice after all.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
