Bonus Complaint Uptown Aces doubled their wagering requirements after my deposit

Hi all,

I am very dissapointed at Uptown Aces, which I found on casinomeister and is accredited.

I usually never play with a bonus because I hate wagering, but this one seemed fair:

The only thing I wanted to know before I would make a deposit is if the wagering requirement of 15 times is on the deposit only or the deposit and bonus. Since in their terms and conditions you can find all information about other bonusses but not anything about this one I asked their live chat:
Schermopname (30).jpg

So I made my deposit.. and guess what: wagering was set on 30 times the deposit amount:
Schermopname (35).jpg

So I had the bonus removed. Only played with non-bonus money.
The thing is I would have NEVER deposited at this casino in the first place without getting a very nice bonus (which is seemed like it would be)

I dont play too much more lately, and if I do, I play at casinos where I am already verified. So I am sure I will get paid in a few days and without sending all the documents they ask you if you make a first withdrawal.

What do you guys think about this? Is this normal for a casino to do after you have asked all the details about their bonus? And after you make a deposit they change their rules?

I am not aware of any RTG casinos that offer a playthrough based on deposit only. You would probably do best to avoid them if that is a must condition for you. I'd also advise that you likely won't get paid without supplying documents.

edit - Ignore last sentence. I believe you are talking about casinos that you have already submitted docs to.

Threatening behaviour - PITA
Its simply not good enough more so because they advertise it as a low playthrough,you clarified it via live chat and the new retrospective terms are nothing special.Have they seen fit to correct the 'error' on the webpage or are they still promoting it as you saw it?
In my view instead of apologising they should be honouring the original deal,i'm sure if you had won 10k off your deposit and hadn't complied with all the t+c's they wouldn't accept your 'apology' and paid you out.It has to work both ways.

Thats why I specifically asked if the playthrough was on deposit only, as you can see in the screenshot of live chat, and they told me it was. Like i said, I usually avoid all bonusses but this one seemed ok for me to try.

I know I wouldnt get paid without supplying documents, thats why I normally stick to the casinos Im verified with already.

My point is: Can a casino first say its 15 times wagering, and then AFTER deposit its changed to 30 times.

I do understand and agree that the Rep screwed up. They should have honored the chat discussion.

They are still promoting it, when you visit Uptown Aces promotions page you can see it at the bottom of the page. However, they told me to change that.. A little too late for me though..

Please contact the casino Rep here in the forum. Go HERE look to your left and click Send Private Message.

With it being the weekend, give her a couple of days to reply.

(My personal advice to all but USA players is to forget about playing USA facing casinos.)

I did sent the REP a PM 2 days ago, not answered yet.

Customer support sent me an email that I denied the bonus while I was on live chat. Offcourse I did, after making the playthrough 30 times instead of the promised 15 times. They then gave me a 25% cashback with 10 times playthrough on my busted deposit.

Just dissapointed, and not a good first impression when you are looking for some other casino to play at then the ones I usually play at.
Thanks for the advice!

Rep may be on vacation or whatever. If you do not receive some sort of reply from her by say... Tuesday, please let Casinomeister know. Reps should always reply within a reasonable time frame.

And as to you having the bonus removed, I don't blame you. Even though you did, I think management should be made aware of the Customer Service goof up and clue their frontline CS in on the basics of RTG wagering requirements. It is so rare as to be extinct for any RTG to offer a bonus with only xBonus WR, that CS should have been able to answer your question correctly.

if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is and in fairness 15x deposit + bonus is still very reasonable in line with the lower end of the wagering scale. I agree tho, CS in general seem to be woefully trained..

I sent the rep a message a week ago about this strange bonus offers, she only asked my username.. never heard from her again.. Im wondering what accredited casinos mean these days?

I will guess to say that the fact that Deck media group has more casinos than I can accurately count off the top of my head and the fact they use several different Gaming brands throughout their casino's does not help the CSR's. I had opened an account there and after playing there for a couple weeks I noticed the email's they sent had a different user name than what I used.... Upon contacting support they checked and said I had multiple accounts and they would delete the other account from their system. I asked how that happened as I knew I did not open multiple accounts. CS had no ideal how it happened. I looked into it and figured out that Uptown Aces is a Rebranded Desert nights and they had my account from Desert nights in the same system. If I had made it to a withdrawal and lost it because of this I would not have been happy. Both accounts had same email address and exact same personal info yet they never caught it?

Uptown Aces doesn't seem to be licensed by Belgium's Gaming Commission, but rather like typical Curacao RTG casino, they offer services at pretty much all countries regardless of local laws and gambling commissions, and leave it up to players to follow the law.

Belgium has pretty harsh laws against playing on websites not licensed by Gaming Commission. The state doesn't even need charge the player in criminal courts, which would be expensive for them and might discourage them from going after low rollers, but the Gaming Commission can impose administrative fines between € 26 and € 25.000 on players. This makes it much more easier and cost efficient, even profitable for the state, to go after low rollers, just like speeding tickets and other fines given for minor violations, can be directly profitable for the state.

Some sites that have a licence delivered by the Gaming Commission may offer games of chance online. You can participate in games of chance only at these sites. If you play on one of the illegal sites, you could face criminal prosecution as a participant.

If the Public Prosecution Service decides not to prosecute, or if no further action has been taken against you within six months, the Gaming Commission may impose administrative fines both on the organisers and on the players. For the players, the administrative fine may be anywhere between € 26 and € 25,000 (in case of repeat offences, or if minors are involved, these amounts are doubled). For the organisers, these fines can rise to as much as € 100,000.
RTG casinos tend to not to care about whether gambling on unlicensed sites is illegal in some countries, they are based on jurisdictions where they feel governments of those countries can't come after them, and usually have some term of the player being responsible to follow the laws of their own countries. So playing at unlicensed casinos Belgian can be risky.
