i am looking for a casino that verifies you and does not ask for source of wealth, as i do not agree to send private details, i am not a money launderer, just a retired person whom likes to play slots without all these questions.

Hard pressed to find one that NEVER will ask folk (unless they fancy breaching a few requirements), but some that are sensible in asking whom (ie, not the guy who deposits 10 quid a month) they ask and how they apply the reg's.

Typical bookie ones seem to adopt a more common sense approach: Will Hill, Sky, Bet365 etcetc. So, unless you're going feral with deposits/weird game play on there, i imagine you'll be fine.

It's the MGA ones that start sow'ing at weird times (Slotmillion/Casumo): i'd particularly give Casumo a wide berth for many reasons.

Novibet i've deposited often at, never had issues: same for Videoslots etc but tbh i wouldn't expect a SOW with my game play/deposits etc.

Also, a casino's (eg if they're fined etc or get a new legal department or change in risk appetite etc) approach may change: fine today, then go SOW nuts in a few months, so you never really know.

It comes down also to how you deposit if your doing constant £100 deposits one after another then might hit certain triggers the problem not many people know what the triggers are like mr p says above one day fine next day sow nonsense, I agreee the U.K. sports/casino are your best bet

Yes unfortunately they can all request at any time.

Not something i think you can avoid. Spread your play at different sites might help you with thresholds but if your not prepared to supply SOW then be prepared to lose a win I guess.

As for casinos ive had a few request bank statements but that's as intrusive as mine has ever been and i have played at quite a few different sites.

Depends on your spend...

Pretty sure you won't hit any thresholds if you deposit 10gbp a month. Pretty sure you won't hit any thresholds if you do not deposit 500gbp within 24h with paysafe. Also pretty sure you won't hit any thresholds if you deposit 2k within 24 hours, or 5k a week. Just a few examples that might help you to pick All British Casino, see my signature for a link :)

Most sure bet would be any operator who doesn't hold a UKGC license and accept UK players, it's just a totally different story if you can find really trustworthy ones where you also get your withdrawals processed and not confiscated. But most of these totally fake rogue ones don't ask SOW:s at all, just make sure you never withdraw, many of them don't like such a behavior.

Probably best guess in UK licensed casinos is to deposit only very small amount per casino and then get new one which also might be bit challenging when starting run out of good sites.

Unfortunately 100% SOW free UK operator probably doesn't exist anymore.

It's not only UK thing also under MGA is same situation. Impossible to say any really trustworthy casino where can be sure that player is safe from SOW requests.

SOW is good thing if there is really some dark in payments or in player's documents. But when you have no red flags, nothing special in game history and you play normal as usual but still get these requests it sounds more like teasing

But MGA casinos without UK license don't accept UK players and OP seem to be from UK. Therefore MGA and not UK licensed operators in OP:s case are irrelevant.

Yeah, Novibet is TOP in terms of games and their website design plus they payout in time. But they simply killed me with their phone calls and document requests. Had to tell them I had enough of this UKGC crap; close my account.
Used to be my fav casino.
With Unibet, no problem at all (yet) and they pay instantly.

Just reminded me that they did do that with me last month - had some weird phone number call, ignored it - went to login to my a/c a few days later and couldn't: they said when you didn't answer, we blocked a/c...ok, bit extreme, but go on - it was to tell me about their RG tools (even though i've limits on there) and, this time anyway, series of bog standard questions: no doubt a SOW is brewing.

Don't get many better casinos than Unibet IMO.

Unibet have max number of withdraws per day limit though. I think it is set at 3 per day... You also can not cancel to add more to them either now due to the fact of covid and the UKGC I think!

I have not played at Unibet for years though so that might have changed in that time. So please correct me if they have relaxed that rule and now allow more than 3 per 24 hour period :)

I play Bonanza, so never had the privilege of withdrawing 3 times a day there - a month, aye :p

Don't think so - i was on a half decent run last month and when i withdrew, took something out, left in...took out again - think it was 6 that day: i'll have a check
