Player's Complaint

I asked for withdrawal of $1500 winnings via international wire transfer. First they said I have to have a local branch of that bank (I don't, I do all electronic banking). I don;t understand what that has to do with anything. I have a legimitae account at a big international bank, which I opened in Virginia 12 years ago. I have since moved to another state, and the closest branch is 500 miles away. However, I have used this account for the past 10 years to pay bills, make deposits, etc., electronically. It is a valdi account. I do not undertsand why Bovada can not process a wire transfer just becuase of the geographical location of a branch of that bank.

Second, I asked for wire transfer of the $1500 via another bank. After 19 days Bovada said that the wire transfer was rejected for "incorrect details." They refuse to tell me what the "incorrect details" are. I called them and they say my bank rejected the wire transfer and I should ask them. My bank has no record of a wire transfer. My bank could not send it back if they never received one. Bovada refuses to tell me their bank name, so I can't contact them. Bovada refuses to contact their bank to see what the problem is. Bovada refuses even to divulge where they are located (what country) or any details whatsoever about the progress of this wire transfer. I get the stock answer "we cannot give you that information." If you can help me get this resolved I would really appreciate it.

Hi fairbro - welcome to!

I'll contact the operator and see what we can find out for you.

Hi fairbro,

Firstly you need to be aware that US banks are prohibited by law from processing any transaction related to online gambling. As such online gambling operators have to use payment processors that will process payments under other guises. When something goes wrong they receive limited information regarding what the problem is. In this instance all they've been told is that something do to with the details provided was incorrect. This explains the lack of detail you've been given.

Secondly, the operator informs me that you've managed to process a withdrawal via BitCoin and have subsequently lost the rest of your balance playing? If that's the case there's nothing further we can do here.
