    Can someone spare me 5 minutes to check this out please.
    I changed my bodog account over from $ to and now all the RJ's have been reset to 1000 and they don't seem to be moving up.
    Can someone in UK register an account in GBP and tell me if it is the same for them.
    Also the Jackpot pinata game is missing and even though there are now supposed to be options to pay by debit card they are not there either.
    I have contacted Bodog but not got a reply yet.
    What is going on here? Are there 2 different Casino versions for $ and ?
    Any info or help would be appreciated.

    What I did notice is the signup bonus is advertised as 110% and 10% on the one page.

    I count a 110% bonus as $100 deposit + $110 bonus = $210
    10% bonus as $100 deposit + $10 bonus = $110.

    I am not aware of an increase in the first deposit bonus.

    I know that RTG casinos cannot handle multiple currencies, and the only way to have versions in different currencies is to have different casinos. If this has been recently launched, then the random jackpots will all be started off at 1000, however, they should move up as players play. If no-one is playing yet, then they will not move. If YOU play, they should build at around 1% of wagers, so if you play 100 through one of the games, the RJ should increase by 1. It may be necessary to log out, and log back in again to get the value to refresh.
    I have a BoDog account in dollars, and they have made no attempt to tell me about an option to change over to having UK Pounds.
    They could well be running BoDog UK as a separate brand, having UK events on the sportsbook, instead of mainly US events which would be of less interest to UK punters.


    EDIT.

    I have just checked the UK site, and it still quotes US Dollars, so seems no different from the main site. I have also noticed signs that they might be questionable. They require an unusually intense level of documentation for credit card deposits, and don't even allow you to scan and send them in the usual way. You have to go through a laborious process to produce the required documents, including requirements in excess of simply a photo ID and back & front of the cards. They want the card statement as well! They will settle for a passport AND driver's licence, which means large numbers of players will not be able to comply.
    On top of this, they insist that the whole bloody lot be FAXED to Antigua (they give the number, bot for US and International players). They also have terms that routinely allow them to confiscate deposits for a wide variety of activities they deem as "bonus abuse", as well as a $20 charge for each withdrawal beyond ONE per calendar month which is free. They are also "Neteller Haters", and have a 3x increase in wager requirement for any deposits.

    I still have no real idea what this Neteller Hating is all about, this used to be the preferred method, but casinos are now trying to steer players away from Neteller, and in some cases Moneybookers also.

    If they are going to pull some kind of stunt, I would rather it was in Dollars than UK Pounds, and if they leave GoneGambling I will uninstall BoDog altogether. I haven't had a problem getting paid as yet, but I am sure I can get a better deal. iNetBet do not appear to be "Neteller haters", and they pay just as fast.

    The UK casino must be a new thing then.
    They said they would have extra deposit methods such as debit cards but now that has been put back to the 28th of this month :mad:
    That was why I changed over from dollars.
    I am glad I asked first because they are quite funny about their players changing currency for some reason.You have to request it first and you can only change once, Two accounts is strictly forbidden.
    They also do not have the Jackpot Pianta game in but have it now in $ :confused:
    They did not ask me for extra documentation change over but I remember it was a pain until I found out I could scan them and email them in, that done everything cleared that afternoon.
    Why they have strict bonus terms I do not know as far as I am aware they only offer a 10% sign up bonus with *10 playthrough.
