I dont believe the US govt has anything to do with this delay in payments.

Its "good business " practice for Casinos to try and hold your funds as long as possible?

Remember the japanese guy in Vegas who won millions and was at the airpotr ready to fly home? Well the casino sent a limo for him at the airport
offered him a lot of freebies and he returned and lost it all in 2 days

The online casino is no different In the long run they will win so they try to hold you as long as possible I would if I ran an online casino. We in this free country of ours
have very little choice where to play.

Solution! Uninstall as soon as you request a withdrawal. The longer they take to pay , you take just as long to make another deposit I learned the hard way.

Right now I am itching to play but cant as I only play at 2 casinos and am awaiting "processing" I absolutely positively wont cancel a withdrawal. In the meantime
I will play online bridge which I enjoy or keep reading forum listening to the bitch and moan(mostly) and envying those cats from Norway and Sweden who are always posting
those wild wild wild screenshots
My 5 cents worth!!!

So none of what I posted here means anything to you? Nor what Bryan has said? Just curious. I put a fair amount of effort into preparing that post, thought you guys would appreciate knowing what the deal is. If not, could have saved myself the effort I guess. :rolleyes:

It is the behaviour of a few in using the "US situation" to their own advantage that dents the credibility of the argument that the problems are all caused by the US environment. We have a casino that can't pay a US player and uses the argument that the convoluted US situation is what caused the problem, and then the same casino slow pays a player from the UK and gives them vague and wooly excuses. We know that for a UK player the only delay is on the casino side, so unlike the US situation, we can see something of what is REALLY going on.

Now, how does the US situation force casino B to move from 24 hour pending to 48 hour pending for it's UK players, and also cause them to do away with flushing on request? This has nothing to do with external forces, and is purely down to the casino being greedy in the same way that the banks fought tooth and nail to hang on to the 3 day clearing cycle until the regulators legislated it out of existence. It turned out the banks simply placed our "limbo" money on "overnight deposit" on the financial markets, pocketing the interest that belonged to the customer. Despite this being common knowledge, it took decades to force change because the banks didn't compete on this, it was an "implied cartel" that they could all benefit from, and customers needed banking, so we couldn't vote with our feet.

The same is true of the casino industry, the only way to force change is to quit playing altogether till change happens. The few players that will actually go through with this are not going to get noticed by the industry, so this will never work in forcing change. Like the banks, it is going to need a shove from the regulators. I am hoping that a suitable shove will come along under the new UK regulations, but I am not holding my breath.

Well, with the recent developments in New Jersey, there may be an opportunity for many US players to experience legalised online gambling for the first time. I can't believe these NJ casinos will be allowed to take 5 days to pay, let alone 14 or more. I would expect them to be required to initiate a bank transfer the same day the player requests it, and it being in the players' bank the next day. The unregulated casinos will have to compete against this, and they just can't, but they probably can make some improvements, and entice players with the prospect of not having their activities reported to the IRS.

Next, players in Europe will see US players getting instant withdrawals, and will expect the same of regulated European outfits.

With luck, this will put the rogues out of business as they depend largely on prohibition in the US for their continued survival.

I know this is a bit different, but it's still online gambling...my hubby and father both bet on greyhounds (I have gotten into horses, but haven't won anything, nothing new there, lmao) when they cashout, they can only do it by check, I believe, and it comes in a week or less.

But I agree, I think when US gets online it will be immediate pay. No way will we have to wait 5-14 days, there would be an uproar I'd assume.


edit...I forget how long and how we got paid years and years ago? Can someone tell me? My memory is gone.

Good to know the seizures of FTP/stars funds in 2011, the seizures of CRIS/et al sportsbook funds in 2011, the quicktender debacle, etc never happened. Must have been one hell of an acid trip on my part.

Seems odd, given that here in the UK the banks are trying their best to get rid of checks as it costs so much to deal with them vs electronic transfer. Years ago, the UK government ditched the check based system "Girocheque" for the payments of pensions and benefits, and moved to a system of payment by electronic bank transfer. The cost savings were significant, as well as making the system more efficient. It seems the US like their "old fashioned" checks. Maybe this is because banking is done differently with loads of small local banks in remote rural areas that are perhaps not happy with "new fangled" technology like not seeing their money in paper form. There are many here who are unhappy with this new system of money only existing as bits of data, they prefer the feel of hard cash, and handing over their pension book each week to get around £100 in tens and twenties to put in their purses. Mostly, these are the pensioners, but a few others take this view after getting screwed over by the electronic systems and the electronic fraud it breeds.

Let me correct your minor typo there:
"The fact is our government is trying to shut off an activity that they see as impossible to tax and to a large degree they have succeeded ..."

KK

I always throught the real reason was about sucking billions out of the usa economy.

VWM...Uh oh, I think I may be wrong...lol...no surprise there.

I just logged into my horse racing site and you can set up to send them money and receive money through your bank. Also, they have many easy ways to deposit, I love it!!! All legal. :D Nice change from spinning slots.

I will ask hubby when he gets home from work and update if he can use his bank or not for his site.

Jumping into the pre-UIGEA WayBack Machine... Hubby & I used Neteller. We each had an account. Do a withdrawal at a good casino (or poker room), everything approved (usually same day) money in Neteller by next day -- at the latest. Places like InetBet and Global Player, it could take all of 10 minutes from withdrawal to money showing up in NT. Move money from NT to bank? No problemo... maybe 3 working days.

Gawd... I do miss it so..... It all seems so far away and foggy now... like a dream.

I love how internet gambling on animals with 25%+ vig is just fine and dandy, but poker and slots are the devil.

Special situation?

Max - it's not that we don't read your posts (at least most of the time), but not reading and not agreeing are two different things.

The problem with saying "well, that was a special situation" is that whatever the situation was it proved that a timely bank wire can be done when the casino or casino group chooses to. And it's not like we are saying that they should have all bank wires to us the next day. We recognize that there are some intermediary steps, but two to three weeks?

I played before UIGEA also, but never had Neteller. I just deposited with a credit card and withdrew by check I believe. The checks took like 3 days to come.

I miss Quicktender. I used to cashout WAY more often then (it seemed I cashed out like once a week or more) because I could cashout late at night and in the morning the money would be in my QT. I hardly ever used to reverse, compaired to now. (well, when I win that one or two times a year, lol, I am the unluckiest person alive I swear!)

I don't get that either?



VWM....I of course was wrong...hahahahaha, are you shocked? Talked to hubby, he can set it up with his bank but didn't want to. So he opts for checks.

Fair enough. Setting it up with his bank may be easier, but it means the bank gets to know a part of his private affairs he may not want them knowing about.

bpb,

Where in the world do you play the horses online that have charges like that? We have a betting site that doesn't charge anything, pays the same odds as the track and pays within 24 hrs. via ACH. The reason that horse racing is legal in the US is because the 'powers that be' like to bet on the ponies or are horse owners.

I loved Quicktender and Payspark. But I am having good results with OKPay.

I have wondered myself if possibly some casinos use the whole US gambling fiasco as an excuse for bad behaviour.

Even if you were located in different countries the wire should take no more than 2 working days provided all the banking info is correct. The fee charged by the clearing house is mandatory but an upfront fee of $60 is unacceptable. OK there are costs involved but I undrstand it should only cost something in the region of $15 and even then it should be somewhat shared between player and casino. In my region the cost of sending a wire to another country is $13USD + $15/25 intermediary fees. Though we should seek an explanation from the casino about the lofty fees and excessively long waiting times for the wires at first glance this does not conform to 'timely payouts'.

Have you seen Bovada's fees for wire transfers. They are some of the highest in the world i think.

Max - it's not that we don't read your posts (at least most of the time), but not reading and not agreeing are two different things.

"Not agreeing" can mean one of two things here (afaic):
  1. I expressed an opinion which you do not share.
  2. I presented some information as fact which you either (a) dispute or (b) doubt the authenticity of.
If you believe it's a #1 situation then I suggest you read again: almost all of what I posted was fact, in other words the situation on the ground today. Of course it is my understanding of that situation but there you go.

If you believe it is a #2 situation, (a) or (b), then I'd challenge you to be specific about which facts are in dispute. I believe I can back any of what I said up with direct evidence from the field.

In other words I don't believe it's about agreeing or disagreeing. I think it's a situation which you either accept the reality you are faced with and respond accordingly, or you deny that reality and ... well, like I have pretty much said already, you're on your own there.

... whatever the situation was it proved that a timely bank wire can be done when the casino or casino group chooses to.

Wrong. What was proved was that the complaint and response process works pretty well with us and this casino and the particular situation you presented at this particular time. I repeat what I said earlier: management response to a crisis (your problem) is not and should not be the same as the regular and typical course of business.

All that was proved in your case was that if circumstances are favourable -- in other words they know you, they agree that you should be paid outside of regular channels, the money is available, and paying you isn't going to bone someone else -- then a special request by that manager can be processed quickly.

AFAICT your basic assuption is that if they did it once for you they should be able to do it all the time for everyone. If I've got that right then I suggest that what you don't know about managing a business, especially in the hostile environment described, is seriously imparing your vision here.

And last but not least you might want to consider the consequeces of being so monumentally dismissive of what the people involved did for you in your particular case. If you ask for help and people make it a priority to resolve your issue and they do so under difficult circumstances then you turn around and imply that they are negligent -- or worse, see the thread title for example -- for not doing it that way every time I wonder how motivated they are going to be to help you next time. Because they are professionals they'll probably do their best to ignore your bad attitude and treat you like anyone else that comes to them with a problem. None too wise on your part though, IMO.

In the end though, whatever, I'm sure you will believe what you want. I get nothing out of trying to enlighten you and none of this is going to change the current situation or how payments are being processed: the guys who are doing their best to get players payed promptly will contunue doing so and the turds that are slow-paying players because they can get away with it will also continue doing so. I recommend you might want to make a distiction between the two but that's up to you. Either way, happy trails!

Agreed there should be virtually no delay in countries that are unrestricted but as Bryan pointed out for players where the government is aggressively fighting these transactions it's a take it or leave it situation. I can get an instant transaction to or from a local business here too.

By my analogy with the mailman, maybe the mailman gives a neighborhood kid a buck to climb the fence and deliver the mail for him. That works good until the kid gets bitten by the dog. The next kid is gonna want 2 bucks because he knows what happened to the first kid. He might even want his friend to help him relay the delivery for another 2 bucks. So now it's 4 bucks and nobody is in a big hurry to go play with the dog!

Where these transactions are unrestricted the best method you have for redress is to vote with your wallet.



LOL with the mail man and a few buks,
were in the virtule world now, surley it cannot be that difficult to get a few quid to some1?
are the U.S really that stricked?

Maybe... we don't want to make it easy for them... but.... do you think the feds don't have people playing (and cashing out) at all the major softwares that accept USA players?

If my memory services me right. Wasn't the US gov secretly processing some of these online gambling transactions, a couple of years ago? :what:

Yes. Linwood processing ran for at least 2 years. Set up, owned, and run by our own gov - and damn fine processors they were, too. Moved that money between players and casinos real quick. Actually, those 2 years were probably the best we've had it post-UIGEA. LOL
