I am away from home at the moment and wanted to have a little fun at Vera & John.

Tried to log-in - but got an "unrecognised user or password" error.
This is not the first time this has happened, so I tried the "Reset Password" feature - only to get a message which said "Unrecognised e-mail address"!
This was obviously BS, since I have had the same e-address since I joined there more than 3 years ago.

I contacted support via e-mail (because Live Chat was off-line at the time) and after a few mails, they basically said I could only log-in when I am in the UK. :what:

The is totally stupid and annoying - I don't have any problems at any other similar "NetEnt based" casinos.
My bitches are:
a) I can't play abroad.
b) There is no message saying "Sorry, you can't log-in from your current location" - just a "You don't exist" message.

V&J have just gone WAY down in my list of favourite casinos to lose my money at... :mad:

I don't understand your moan here. This is basically the same at all casinos even highly rated 32Red? I get blocked when on holiday in Denmark when I go to see family and friends.

What you should just do is use HMA vpn and you will have no problems any places I have done that myself.

I fully follow you in moaning about that suddenly you don't exist and looks like you password is wrong or email not recognized. But I have also had that happen on a different Casino cant remember exactly which one.

It all depends which country you are in? As of course they have to follow all the license laws. Reason I am fine using bet365 or betsafe when abroad as they are licensed both countries if for example I go to Denmark.

But again I still don't understand why Vera&John deserves their own bitch moan thread? You might as well done it general instead why can I not play abroad? Which I do not understand ur moaning about has been discussed several times here at Casinomeister and I am surprised you would not know better. Also best is to contact the Casino you want to play at "BEFORE" you go abroad or start playing as they could do a FU if you get a big win.

To finish off on a positive note. Look at the bright side mate you haven't lost any money :p and enjoy your holiday wherever you are :)

As this thread has been bumped (along with my memory!), it's only fair to say that my issue was resolved and that I COULD play abroad.

The issue was, that I was trying to log-in to VeraJohn.com instead of VeraJohn.co.uk.
When I was in the UK, my bookmark to .com automatically re-directed to the correct URL of .co.uk - so I never even noticed. When I was out of the UK, this didn't happen and that was why I "didn't exist".

So my apologies go out to V&J for starting this thread!

Woah.

Woah.

NO way possible is this a solid advice. Only fraudsters use VPN.
Yes and?? if you're not a fraudster then you have nothing to worry about. As long contact casino first before playing. I also made full advise to KK and he prob already knows that so no need to lecture me :rolleyes:

About as dumb a comment as I have read. Of course its only fraudsters who use VPN! I hope there is irony in your post.

I use hideman to unblock all regions of my netlixx account .... does that make me a fraudster ?
I also use hideman when abroad to get a number of key UK services that other wise can be a pita to reach.

VPN Rocks for many things.

I was going to say this would be an fraud protection also not being able to log in from abroad, But matter resolved just by changing the.COM to .U.K

Again just goes to show how much CS really know
