Account specific, by the looks.

Curious that it’s not an immediate restriction though.

Yeah still seems strange though. Usually they bonus ban people when they are just either problem gamblers or bonus abusers. They do not bonus ban peoples accounts without a good reason usually!

Gala Casino did something similar to me a couple of months ago. I was an occasional player there, low stakes (20p) per spin, low deposit (£50 every other month), but regular player of their daily free promotions.

I contacted online chat at the time who said it was clearly a mistake, and was sent an email to that effect a day later with apologies. Upon logging in the following day, I did not have any promotions showing. So I replied to the email referencing the content of that email only to receive a reply stating I was no longer eligible for their promotions. No reason given, and no acknowledgement of the email I was previously sent apologising for being told the wrong info.

I’ve never been back to Gala. Their loss.

Yep - its individual to me....
I mean - if they email 3 times a week saying money back if your horse is 2nd or 3rd in such and such a race - they can't grumble when you take it up!

So shortsighted though - yeah i'm probably about £150 to the good on SKYBET - thats probably less than 5% off my losses on Sky Vegas.

You won't be eligible for their 3 free spins here and there on the, not so sexy, 10p stakes and probably a bottom feeder RTP?

Oh my :eek:
I can't say for sure - cos i instaclosed account!, but i think it was SkyBet promos only - I could still have had my 1 x 10p free spin once a week

Reads as if he’s won too much from freebies and it’s time to turn off that tap.
True dat...........
I fully accept I was taking the piss with betting - only ever did the money back if 2nd or 3rd races - and always backed the favourite to boot!

But - I also only ever did this when they emailed me that the promo was available - so they there own worse enemies........

Yeah I guess they want to entice you in and get you hooked so you contribute your life savings to their profits. The very thing the UKGC is trying to prevent. It’s all arse about face…

They clearly need the money to pay for those adverts with Barry Shitmoustache in them. Sky Vegas really are the absolute fucking pits aren't they? You must have dislocated both shoulders from shrugging so hard when you read that email @Mouse75 . It's like being told you're banned from having gherkins in your Big Mac.
