Read our Lucky247 Casino Review.
First of all I want to say that I am a big admirer of your work on this website and I follow it regularly. This is one of the reasons that I chose to play at Lucky247. I like Microgamming casino's but the ones's reputable are only a few left. So after reading your review on them I thought to give them a try.
On 23th July I created an account with them. I have made a total of 7 deposits(1550 euro) in which I think at least one was without bonus. After I made my first and second deposit I was getting a lot of offers from them on my mobile and e-mail. Some times I deposited and get a bonus even though I didn't expect one. So I kept playing with them until on my last deposit on 1th August I get a win of 2400 euro.
I deposited 200 euro and got 100 euro bonus and I played Hitman slots with total stake 19.5 and Break Away with 10 stake where the majority of the win was on the slots Break Away. After withdrawing I was requested to send documents. I have sent them and they accepted them and said they will process my withdrawal. After a while later they said I have to send them my bank details as the first withdrawal must be controlled by the bank and they have to call me to verify me. I sent them my bank details and suitable hours for them to call me. They did and on the phone they said now the withdrawal will be processed except I have to introduce my bank details myself. On the next day the following message I received from them:
Thank you for choosing Lucky247 Casino.

After I replied :
What have I done wrong exactly? I read the terms before I started playing. My bets did not exceed the limit.
It must be a mistake.Can you please help me understand why I was unable to withdrawal?
And they said :

Please be advised that the term in breach is the 20% rule in which you have bet more than 20% of the bonus received in a single bet.
Should you require any further assistance, feel free to contact us at any time as we are available 24/7 at your convenience.
So first I want to criticize the way they communicated with me. Why not tell me upfront of all the requirements for a first withdrawal but give them in pieces and after all was provide it, confiscate my money anyway. This looks like a stalling tactic and not the work of a "player focused" casino as you described them. And when asking for the specific reasons of the funds confiscation after a vague reason " the nature of your bets" they said "You broke the 20% rule" which I clearly did not break. Only judging by this fact I feel that the Review you gave them doesn't reflect the true reality. This sends a big message of their unprofessionalism and winners not welcome policy.
I feel very strongly that I have been mistreated and wronged here so I would appreciate any help from you.
