River Belle - resolved

I can't believe how bad the customer service is at River Belle. I made a deposit through Neteller on the 22nd. It didn't show up in my account, so I sent them an email. I got no response on the 23rd, so I emailed again giving them the NT number from Neteller, again no response. Later on the 23rd I went to the online chat and they said they would look into it. Yesterday, the 25th I still had heard nothing so I emailed again giving all the details.

Here it is the 26th. I still don't have the $600 in my account, and I have not even had the courtesy of an email from them. I expected much more from a casino recommended here. It's not that I think they are dishonest, just they have awful customer service. If I ever get my $600 from them I will definitely take my business somewhere else.

I did see someone elses post about click2pay, but I thought it was some problem with that service. How are other people's experiences with this place?

I've never thought much of this group. IMO, their customer service is worse than Omni's and Intercasino's, and that's pretty bad, as Omni and Intercasino usually don't answer Emails until you send them two or three inquiries (at least that's been my experience).

Keep after them; they will fix the problem. It's just too bad you have to spend so much time getting problems resolved.

As to the casino being short staffed because of the holidays, that's a bunch of BS. The casino is open 24/7, so all their support and banking elements should be open and staffed 24/7.

Not to sound redundant, but many casino emails a blocked by spam filters by default. It wouldn't be the first time this happened. Please double check these - I've also PM'd the CSR supervisor as well about this.

Flowergirl: Don't worry, you'll get your $600. It's an honest group. Having said that, I have decided to take (most of) my business elsewhere as well. Reason: slow customer service. I have been a loyal customer of the Belle Rock group in the past 6 months and I've wagered quite a lot. Lately though the customer support has started clogging up. I had a similar experience just before christmas: a Neteller time-out (not the casino's fault per se), got the NT code, was assured they would sort it within 24 hours. They also denied my invitation bonus twice on the grounds that the deposit hadn't been made within the time frame (which was not true at all). I asked the online chat fellow whether calling their phone number would help, and he said no, the procedure is the same.

Eventually I got my credits, and I got my bonus as well, no problem, but it took upwards of 72 hours which is way too long in my opinion. I told them at 48 hours that if they can't speed it up I'm reluctant to employ their services in the future. They weren't impressed. Finally I got an e-mail simply saying that if I decide to keep my real player account after all, I am welcome to claim more bonuses but that I should pay attention to the bonus terms :confused:

I have always played according to every single term and rule so I thought this was a bit unnecessary.

So I think although it is an honest group and things eventually work out, to me the idea of spending a large portion of my precious free time dealing with customer support is not very attractive.

Having said that, Belle Rock offers very nice bonuses quite regularly, so I'll probably keep taking those anyway. For my bigger deposits I'll turn to another casino (namely 32red), at least until I'm convinced they've enhanced their cs.

Not sure if this is any help.

I had same problem with Fortune Lounge Group. When I called them they said the people who track down the missing deposit can take up to 3 business days. They also said they do not work on weekends.

Hopefully they track it down for you soon.

First I just want to say that I do expect to get the money eventually. It's not that I am worried they would out and out steal it. Second, this has absolutely nothing to do with a bonus. This was a simple deposit. Third, it is possible that my email account is blocking them, but wouldn't that be quite a coincidence given that I did receive an email from them before making the deposit telling me about all their winning opportunities.

As for being short staffed because of Christmas. Call me Scrooge, but if I owned a casino I would say to myself that the only thing I have to offer different than every other Microgaming casino is customer service. I might think that people are home from work on weekends and holidays so I would think that would be a time to have MORE staff, not less. But maybe that is just me.

I will try your advice of PMing them and let you all know how it goes.

Well, here it is the 28th and still no word, and no money. I PMed the Belle Rock person here yesterday and still have no response. I went to the online chat and waited for 5 minutes but nobody answered. Pretty shameful if you ask me.

You're right - this is unacceptable from a top casino Support, over a holiday or not. I've contacted a couple people to see what the problem is.

Jetset, your recent article in GOM should be required reading by all casino managers.

It is strange that some of the largest online casinos have such weak customer service.

The person you PMd is on holiday break, and many of their offices are closed. But then again, it is unacceptable that a casino group as big as this can't get a holiday skeleton crew to take care of this. My apologies.

Thanks, Paul - it's a business-critical area that is astonishingly neglected and needs constant management supervision to ensure the player is treated properly imo.

Well, after spending 10 minutes on the phone with them today, and then waiting 2 hours, I finally received my deposit. They had some story about $600 being more than their deposit limit of $500 and that is why the computer kicked it back. They said this happened when they tried to credit my account on the 25th?! Merry Christmas.

Of course this didn't explain why they never responded to any emails or any of the other questions that sane business people would think of. Anyway, thanks everyone here for your support.

Glad you got that sorted out, Flowergirl. But I agree that this level of customer care is not good enough. I'll take this up with my contact once he's back from the Christmas break.

Redeemed??

** FLower Girl, I am very happy to hear that you have this lot sorted. I'd be very upset if RB did not sort this out as they are one of my fav places online. I have known the casino from the 'day it was born' (doing my best meatloaf voice!). Can anyone remember the 'old days' when you had to wait TWO WEEKS (standard) for a pay out, and then another week because they had to send it to you, and depending on the local 'mail' you MIGHT get your money in a month?! Just shows how the industry had changed aye! (And of course, how spoilt we became!) Then again, one cannot have expectations if one was not lead to them!! *sigh* **

Hi Flower Girl and all others.

Compliments of the season to you all, and I hope you will have a fantastic 2005.

Flower Girl, sorry to hear about the poor service that you received, and I can assure you that I will be following up on this as we strive to improve our service all the time. You are all right; the fact that a number of our staff take leave over this period is no excuse. I am glad that the problem was resolved, and should you need anything further please do not hesitate to contact me.


Best regards,

Belle Rock.
