Player's Complaint

I have submitted a bank statement as proof of address multiple times. The statements were dated within 3 months of their submission date on both occasions, despite the casinos guidance stating they must only be within 6 months. The most recent is a Lloyds Bank statement dated 01 August to 31 August 2019. They are refusing to accept this as they say it has 2 dates and not a single issue date. They state this is due to UK regulation, yet they cannot provide me with any evidence of this regulation and are referring me to their own terms that state it must be no older than 6 months (which it is).

Hi rach65 - welcome to!

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

Hi, This is now resolved. They eventually accepted a driving license. I did sent an email to the address on your site but it may not have been picked up yet. Id like to point out, should anyone else be experiencing the same problems. They were refusing to accept a bank statement that covered a full month and therefore showed "01 August to 31 August". They claimed it did not have an issue date and they could not accept it due to UK legislation. Thanks anyway! [EDIT]

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sits to the north-west of mainland Europe. The United Kingdom shares a border with The Republic of Ireland and has coasts on the Atlantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, North Sea, Irish Sea and English Channel. The population of the UK is approaching the 67.6 million mark leading to a fairly densely populated land mass. The gambling sector in the United Kingdom is entirely regulated and licensed by the UKGC – the United Kingdom Gambling Commission. Should players resident In the UK wish to gamble with foreign based operators there is no history of this being treated as a criminal offence, but high levels of protection exist for UK residents playing with UK licensed operators.
