Slow Withdrawals due to... The Christmas Period..?

    Has anybody else been told this?

    One of my regular casinos, usually I get payment in 1 hour, now over 13 and counting...

    CS tell me 'Due to the Christmas period it is very busy at the moment. All requests are reviewed and processed in between 24-48 hours'

    Well, the 23rd is not a bank holiday... Maybe more people are playing... but a so far 13 fold increase in processing time?

    Not sure...

    They leave it reversible of course. Hmm..

    If I ran a casino, I would speed up withdrawals at Christmas time - people have more time to redeposit then ;p - or use it on some shopping!

    Majority of the employees of Malta based casinos are not originally from Malta. Plenty of them are taking a flight on 22nd or 23rd to their home countries to spend holidays with their families I would guess. 23rd not being bank holiday doesn't really help if much of the payment processing department is on vacation.

    I have always said, casino is a 24hr operation and should operate as normal for 24hrs, 24/7 365 days a year, Times have long changed since the 80's,

    And yes they should of made sure all withdraws was sorted, If they are not sorting payments out over certain days than surley do not put a pending on it,

    Excuses, excuses, excuses .... the only thing i can say. :mad:

    This time it is Christmas period, other times it is the weekend, the bank holiday, the summer season, my dog needs walking :rolleyes: ...etc etc..... :confused: :mad:

    And why would it be busier the days before Christmas??? :what: :confused: People are still at work and most have only a long weekend.

    If that would be the case then any decent company expecting more business than usual is making sure they employ a few extra staff to cover for that period.

    Why can VS pay in 5-60 minutes any time of the day/week/month/year???? :thumbsup:

    I can join the club.

    I have a withdrawal at an accredited Microgaming casino which is pending since the 18th.
    The reason is supposed to be "the finance department is very busy" because many players had nice winnings and all withdrawals need be manually checked :mad:

    I intended to use some of my winnings to share with my wife and daughter.

    Yip, its taking longer to be paid at the moment - I'm on day 8 from withdrawal at an accredited site and its still not in my bank, " payment processor had issues" (though they managed to pay smaller withdraws after 5 days???)!! Well at least that's one site less to visit after Xmas.

    All thou I,am not a euro player I can most assuredly get behind this Christmas period slow down, I have a rather large withdrawal pending for almost 48 hour,s now. And my CS was met with a 25 minute wait and then that the finance dept. is very very busy? This is a accredited casino that has "ALWAYS" paid with in 3 working day,s. that is a CC repay. And Duck your a euro player and it has been since the 18th WOW that seem,s a long time for the group of player,s that are in a great section of the world for online gaming. It seem,s that a matter of hour,s is the norm and that is really great compared the waiting time,s we US facing player,s have to contend with>? It may make sense to the casino,s that it is a holiday ,but i agree with spintee. They are open 24 hour,s to take your money there should be no reason why that should not apply to withdrawal,s also? I,am not sure about the casino,s that are facing the euro player,s but here in the state,s the finance dept. are always closed on the week-end,s. I have always thought it to be a real drag. As at least 30% to 50% of my win,s happen on the week-end.s? Anyway everyone have a Merry Christmas and don,t have too much fun!:thumbsup: Peace Out! Out Of The Mist! shewoff​

    I can dream, but it would be nice if they would start introducing visa cards like a lot of the betting sites are using now, so you can withdraw the cash straight away from an ATM without having to wait for a withdrawal.

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Hey,


    I had a pending withdrawal this morning at Thrills from yesterday and was told by a livechat agent that the payment department

    does not work today due to Christmas and that my payout would be processed early tomorrow morning...

    FunFact: It was processed only two hours later, from Santa himself I guess :D

    Heres a good one, the withdraw that I had been waiting for from 16th still not been processed I have just been told by Chat, even though I was told earlier this week all withdraws had been processed, and withdraws from this week have already been received.
    I'm not a happy customer. so my "superfast layouts" will be moving into week 2 after the weekend, is this acceptable for an accredited casino?

    Simple answer. Don't play over the Christmas period. Eat, drink and be merry. Spend time with the family, friends etc. Forget paying 4p in the Pound to a remote server for a few days. If their payments are having a few days off, give your Neteller/Card a few days off. Then you'll feel refreshed and have no pending period stress:thumbsup:....

    That's easy for those that can but for the rest of us then playing can be something to do to make the time go faster. Happy for your family though Dunny :thumbsup:

    I'm furious at CasinoJefe right now because I have to wait 5 days for a cashout to Neteller.
    No payouts on weekends. If I just have known, but they don't write that in their rules anywhere.
    One less customer for them.

    Agreed but the thing is xmas is only one day, and may get 1 or 2 chucked in bank holidays, Its the withdraws way b4 people are stressed about that if casino knew there having a few days of than why still the long pending? We know the reason but people treat xmas like back in the 80's, May be getting older lol but its only like a Sunday know days, years ago you was lucky to find a loaf of bread or milk and that was if a corner shop was open,

    Know days you can drive to your local tesco or quick pint to find its all going on, Even banks was open yestoday,

    Manually check :confused: your casino acount b4 withdraw, Nah mate most have a auto spreed sheet in place, takes two secs to click highest bet, and games alpha order to see if played not alowed games,

    I just had a payment on xmas day from a site not even opened yet, 1 day 18rs and that was my first withdraw and uploaded docs onsite, It was over £500 as well

    Any way hope you having a good day :cheers: Enjoy
