Just about to fly back home but have done some slotting whilst on holiday.

Wasn't sure what rules are playing abroad from uk account but of 3 casinos I tried all 3 worked.

Now 2 I had pending withdrawals but they have been processed but one of them i noticed country I was in was banned. So got paranoid big withdrawal be void but been processed.

So do casinos not care are rules not strict or am i just lucky. This not first time.i played when I was in hong Kong too no issues

Hey @nutnut ,

More than likely you already have a long-standing relationship with these casinos.
Verified your account etc before you went abroad.
I wouldn't say it was luck, or the casino not being strict, more so the casino staff know you're not actually from that country you were playing from :)

Hi Conor. Yes all accounts.had for years and regular depositor and verified. But legally speaking is it ok or worse could a casino void a withdrawal on those terms.

Just wondering for future travels. Would your casino be ok??

I go abroad several times every year - usually to the Czech Republic.
Don't normally have any problems playing at my favourite casinos ;)

I remember Energy casino put back my cashout in my account just because suddenly my IP showed me as abroad.
I wasn't and it was their system who made a mistake, so some are more strict.

VS usually just close the account if you're somewhere you shouldn't be and you have to contact them to get it open again.

These days I always send an email if I'm going somewhere just to not end up in wondering what will happen, and that isn't so difficult.

I would always advise you check with the casino you wish to play at if you do decide to play while abroad, a quick email to their support inbox, or jumping onto the casinos LiveChat would easily clear it up for you.

Of course, the usual geo blocks for specific game providers are still enforced. For example, if you went to Canada, you wouldn't be able to load any NetEnt games.

For TradaCasino, if the country you're in is not IP blocked from loading the site, then there wouldn't be any issues :)

Wish I could go to Mexico. They can play every slot imaginable at VS like the Swedes can.

No not Swedes anymore. All games needs to be licensed for the Swedish market and not all are.
I don't know really what i can or can't play but these days it's really boring to play since it all goes too slow. Every spin has to take at least 3 seconds, so no quickspin. That mean no Netent for me except for DoA.
It's not fun being a Swede anymore so chose Mexico instead.

Yeah, I don't really see why you wouldn't just ask the casino beforehand. Why risk not getting paid on a hypothetical you aren't sure of when you can just talk to them? If they tell you no, just take a few days off or ask another casino.

Also I would hate that 3+ second per spin rule. Doesn't that just encourage people to bet larger stakes since it takes longer for anything to actually happen?

There are some slots I know are high variance/potential money eaters when your luck is bad. But it's harder to tell this when you're forced into really slow spins so it just feels like nothing is happening. Personally I'd consider increasing my bets in those cases since I don't want to wait forever to see if I win or lose.

I avoid those games that are slow instead, or I can put them on auto and do other things. Those games I really want to play though hurts, but it's easier to stand it if you like the game.

When it comes to new players then maybe they don't care if it's slow. I remember when I started playing. By then it was mostly RTG and Rivals. On RTG they were slow and we accepted that. Then suddenly one day they had turbo, and what a difference. After playing that it was really hard going back to slow spin on those games and it ate the money so much faster. When thinking about that then yes, I understand why they chose such rule.
The difference is though that on some games it's almost normal when you have them on quickspin :eek2:

I doubt anyone play higher stakes because of it, but I can be wrong.

Bodog group (bovada/ignition/slots.lv + couple others) still has those super slow RTG (real series) slots from like 10+ years ago - versions that haven't received updates since then. They also have some other games that seem to be modeled based on those slots that are also pretty slow but with better autoplay features (not sure who made those games).

Was actually thinking of some of those with my post, I've definitely increased my bet higher than I would have once or twice because 6-7 seconds per spin feels incredibly slow to me. 3 seconds isn't quite as bad, though my personal preference is usually faster. With turbo spins I can just watch the slot, with 3+ second spins I'll usually browse the internet while playing.

Then I can also compare it to the first years when I had a really lousy computer, and hardly knew anything about them either. That was torture.
I never forget when I almost thought 32Red was cheating with BDBA because it played so slow that I was sure i got the spin result before I clicked the spin button:p I even recorded it:oops:

These are the kind of things that is important to remember when new members come here complaining about things. Mostly I would like them to get punished by using my old computer though:D
