    Four years ago, I had a bad experience with a Costa Rican casino (VIP Global Gaming, You must register/login in order to see the link.) in which over $2000 of my winnings from playing a video poker machine with a 3 percent player advantage disappeared from my account. This happened in 2000, and I did not report this to anyone yet for blacklisting purposes. I have a hardcopy of my account profile from 8/23/00 showing the $2450 in my account which disappeared the following month.

    Is this a complaint or is it just a warning? Didnt you do anything to retrieve your winnings? That isnt a small amount so what actually did you do? It more than 4 years now.

    I suppose it's both a complaint and a warning. I did complain to the casino when it happened, but they basically told me that they paid me enough already (I received several thousand in winnings prior to that). At the time I didn't think there was anything I could do so I just let the matter drop.

    ** My first thoughts on this was "Is this person for real?!This is certainly a joke.. riiiight?" and then it switched to "MAN, that was a lot of money to just shrugg off and say 'let it go'." I'd be screaming my face off untill someone listens, even then! To be fair to the group though... it is many years later, and I am wondering if it changed hands in the mean time, and just to know... Most casinos pay eventually, but I am sure they won't... not almost 5years after the fact *frown* the way I look at this, I cannot help but wonder why you left it then... there have always been SOME form of help available from as early as 1998! I guess you won't do that again! **

    If I had thought of it at the time, I would have searched the internet for an attorney in Costa Rica who may have been willing to try to recover the money for me in return for a commission, but now the statute of limitations time has probably been reached (in the US I think it's 3 years). Maybe there might be a collection agency in Costa Rica that might be interested in trying to recover the money, but a Google search of "Costa Rica collection agency" didn't turn up anything worthwhile.

    From what I remember, it was bought out by Diamond Sportsbook International. Diamond Sportsbook paid me the money that VIP owed me at the time of the transfer, but then I proceeded to continue to win more money at VIP which they didn't pay (It's possible that Diamond might have sold VIP after they bought it, but to my understanding both operate out of the same office building in Costa Rica).
