Tip for Canadian Checks -

I opened a JP Morgan/Chase bank account. They only hold the Canadian checks for 48 -72 hours for clearance. This is far better than my credit union which quoted me 1-2 weeks and then it took about a week in total AND no access to any of the funds.

Check was in "U.S. Funds" printed clearly on check from Lucky Club and I was credited for the full amount of the check, no conversion into Canadian dollars. (but with a "hold" on funds availability until the 48-72 hours is up)

I had been staying away from Jackpot Capital and Lucky Club due to their inability to wire to my other banking accounts, last time ended up with the Western Union method and they picked up the extra WU fees over and above the $30 w/d fee charged. But I think it was only because I had to wait 10 business days only to be told that they couldn't get the wire to BOA to go through and they didn't want me to wait any more. So WU became the option.

The last two times, I waited 48-72 business hours for "processing" after I requested the w/d and then both times ONE day after approval, FEDEX was at my door with the check. Very cool! Requested w/d Friday 8/3 late night, approved Wednesday 8/8 and check arrived Thursday 8/9.

Any how, I am back at Lucky Club and enjoying it - love the Ancient Wonders new game. Have hit the 100x bet feature several times from a 50 cent bet to once at $25 (working my way through the WR)

Ok, back to my corner...............

FWIW,

I was playing steadily at Lucky Club, had the one great hit, have deposited over 3k since and nothing. At first I thought maybe it was because in my head I wanted to cash put atleast $1k due to the big fees, making it worthwhile, however I have never gotten it over a couple of hundred since. I have been trying Buzzluck and getting nothing either. I decided if I ever got it to $500 I would cash out...but nada so far. I deposited in LC today going to try one more time. Have you had consecutive wins at JC Diane? And not being nosey but do you have a tendency to cash out small amounts, or do you try and get a substantial amount? Back in tbd day when QT was available I didn't mind a couple of hundred dollar wins because the money was put in there quickly, but now it's a different story. :(

Yes, I had 3 w/d pending at one time -- so back to back to back wins. But I do tend to stop and cash out once I hit about $500. For a $30 fee for issuing a check to me, that seems to be a good stop spot.

Diane, you got me hooked on that ancient game. I hated it at first, could not hit anything, I mean anything..But I kept at it and now I enjoy it. Not hitting anything big yet, but at least I get some play time. I keep going back and forth between Lucky Club and Buzzluck..Never cashed out from
Lucky Club. Did cash out from Buzzluck, once for 1200.00 and once for 800.00...But boy they can go thru your money very quickly..However , when they decide to hit, it seems to be something decent. Good luck to everyone...P.s. What are your thoughts on Liberty Slots

Pardon me for horning in here, but I saw you ask about Liberty Slots.

I thought I'd mention that I like them VERY much. In fact I just withdrew $1045.00 and left $300+ to play with. I'm going to try video poker and see how they do on that.

AND there is no problem with cashing out.

Diane you have that magic touch. :) I wish more casinos had those games, I like them so much. :D

LOL.............not always. I just don't post much about my losing sessions.

Just like when I play live poker in the B&M card rooms. Talk about my wins, "temper"my losses.

I enjoy Liberty Slots as a change of pace. I have not had any problems with their cashouts - but will also candidly say its been awhile since I cashed out from there. I like the new Amanda Panda game, Jurassic, Safari, and Reel Deal.

But remember they are not accredited at this point -- so please remember that.
