Player's Complaint

 

This is an extremely long complaint which i an just going to try and keep as short as possible. In september 2020 i or slightly before i signed up to the casino. Shortly after i won R1900. It tooks months and months to verify as everytime they kept asking for the same details over and over and they do not come back timeously, you have to keep requesting and sending the same items. They delay the process out so long that you just get so tired and frustrated. Then eventually months later in about December or so the account was eventually verified. At that time it took so long that it said there was a system error and i had to redo the withdrawal process. But now once i clicked withdrawal, it said that i needed to make a deposit before i could withdraw. I found this very strange considering i had already deposited funds numerous times so why do i have to deposit again just to withdraw my winnings. The next problem was because they took so long to verify my account, i could no longer deposit money via EFT, it kept declining my cards, i tried various methods and still it kept declining, i spoke to their support team numerous times to rectify the issue which they could not and then eventually again months later they finally said oh no its because the eft option is no longer available in south africa and i must try to use a different card. During that time i just got so frustrated and then just played the money out and lost and then during January this year, my sister was staying by me and i said maybe we should try playing this casino but it keeps declining my card so she said its fine i can use hers so i transferred money to her card and then from her card onto the casino which worked perfectly. Eventually i played with the R500 which i brought up to R 5000 and decided i wanted to cash out then when they required the proof of deposit so in that initial email i sent the details i also along with it sent my sisters details and her ID and a written consent to say that she allowed me to use the card which they came back and said that the deposit was made by a third party, i said yes i know which is why i originally sent you all her details and i was the one who told you that it was to her card so then they sent me a form to complete to fill in her details from a third party declaration which i sent and which again took weeks and months requesting various documents which we did just for them to decline it anyway!!! And then they just refunding my R500 and the R150 that i put in via net teller because again i had to deposit money just to withdraw. So i had R650 in the account. Then i withdrew the R500 and they came back and said no i cant withdraw it because it needs to be put back to the card that it came from so i tried to do that then all of a sudden the minimum amount needs to be R1000 to withdraw so i said now how am i able to withdraw the funds if the minimum is R1000 and i only R500 and they said i must deposit money and i said they how can i deposit money if i am constantly saying that my card keeps declining which is why i asked my sister if i could use her card then they said no i must use swifty or something and i said but whats the point in adding another wallet when i already have one and also that contradicts what they said of depositing the money into the original account that it came from so im just going to do it through net teller since i already had to pay all the charges and extra fees just to deposit again in the account to withdraw what was already my money and now i check my balance and my pending withdrawals and its R0. I am now in April 2021. This whole problem started last year in September 2020. And i have no money since just losses of time and energy spent on them. I have even asked for all my chat history with their support because i am going to put this over all social media platforms so that no one else gets scammed into loosing money. I have all their emails apologising for their system error but i believe theses things are done intentionally so that they never pay anyone out. I want to expose them to the scam artist that they really are! I would not be in this situation had they not advised me to use a different card and just paid out the original R1900 but due to their constant system errors im the person in the wrong!
