BetUK - voided winnings
Found for the Casino - While we understand that the situation will be unquestionably frustrating for the player, the terms regarding playing low contribution games then shifting to higher contributing games were clear and as such there's no grounds to request that BetUK pay the winnings in this case.
Read our BetUK Casino Review.
Hello there, my name is [EDIT], and I signed up to play at BetUK, made a £150 deposit and received a £150 bonus as part of their welcome offer.
I recall starting off playing £25 and £50 a box on blackjack and managed to win a few hands and hit a few blackjacks. I then started playing roulette, playing mostly £5 on a selection of numbers, splits and corners. I started off losing a little, and then managed to hit one of my jackpot numbers. I was happy with the win and decided to play a variety of slots, I recall playing Da vinci Diamonds, and also Guns n Roses, which I hit a few good bonus rounds with bets of £4 and £10, and managed to finish the wagering requirement.
A day later, I received an e-mail from their support team that cleared all my winnings, and my balance of around £1,900 was reduced back to my deposit of £150.

I was really shocked by this and did not understand two-tier betting at the time, but from searching on google I understand this is what people do to take advantage of their bonuses. I have to admit I loved the idea of doubling your first deposit so I have twice as much money to play with and this is what attracted me to deposit my money and play with betuk. I had a quick read through the terms and conditions before for how much I had to play through to get my money to be withdrawable, but did not understand this term. I feel this term is very unfair and I am really shocked to have my winnings taken away from me. I have tried to e-mail them pleading my case, but they e-mailed back saying the decision is final. I have been advised by a friend who said I should try my luck on here, or complain with the gambling commission.
Thank you in advance for your help! I hope I have clearly explained everything.
