Gala - Voided winnings

Ruling

Found for the Casino - This player exceeded the maximum bet while playing at Gala casino while using the Gamble feature after a winning spin. While the gamble feature is only offered after winning rounds, it is a separate bet that is decided entirely independently of the main game and would be analysed separately to determine fairness. As such it is NOT excluded from maximum bet terms.

Player's Complaint

deposit guarantee banner

Hi There,

I deposited 100 GBP in Gala casino using the below link and was given 400% bonus [EDIT]

I then played casinomeister slot machine on 10 GBP per spin and used the gamble feature (which is allowed). During the rollover I used 5 GBP per spin. I ended up having 2950 GBP after meeting the wagering requirement and sent withdrawal request to Gala. In the meantime my account was suspended and I was no longer able to log in. Also, I received email saying my winnings were voided due to breach of bet limit terms on First Deposit Bonus to win funds with bonus active. I called Gala and was told I placed stakes such as 50, 100 , 30 , 20 GBP which is not correct. All I have done is to play with 10 GBP per spin and then reduced my spins to 5 GBP and when I made some winning I used the Gambling feature.

Username: [EDIT]

Email: [EDIT]

I will appreciate if you could assist.

Thank you,

[EDIT]

Hi Patron72 - welcome to ThePOGG.com!

Before I go any further, how much were you wagering on the Gamble feature? Having reviewed the terms and conditions the maximum allowed wager is £10. If you've wagered more than £10 on the Gamble feature you have broken this term.

The Gamble feature is a separate bet to the main game, not a continuation of the main game. This game would be analysed separately to the main game to determine fairness. You have a choice whether to place additional wagers so if you’ve decided to wager more than £10 at any point using this bet then you HAVE violated the maximum allowed wager.

If you don't believe you have bet more than £10 on the Gamble feature I'll contact the operator and see what can be done.

Thanks,

ThePOGG

Hi Patron72,

I'm afraid you've not answered my question - how much did you wager on the Gamble feature? If you bet more than £10 there's no case to take to the operator.

Thanks,

ThePOGG
