Hi suicidehigh - welcome to!

I'm sorry to hear about your mother's situation. Unfortunately however there is nothing we can do to help you.

When registering an account your mother agreed to the terms of use of the operator which includes:

"4.1.10 You are not allowed to use any payment methods that belong to a Third-party or person;"

If your mother has deposited via a payment method that belongs to someone else then she has violated this term. At that point the operator are entitled to consider the account and all activity on it void.

Sorry we cannot be of further help!

Hello thanks for your reply and yes we have established the violation but what about how my mother was made to run around for another 5 plus days on the false hope she was receiving the winnings , I have transcripts from herself and bride where she asks where does she stand after admitting to using third party card and not at anytime was she told that using that is going to be a problem and was told to send in documents of my step bank statement etc ... She should have been shut down right there and then instead they made her believe it was going to happen ... Also there is a little but if entrapment as in why was the use of another's card even allowed to go through ... And I myself was given a employees word the winnings would be paid just last night and I even said to the bloke that he does not have the authority to make that decision but he did not listen and Gabe me his word only to be disappointed as it did not happen ... I am in the process of speaking with media out let's whom are very interested in this story and I will not stop until I am heard .. they have bought so much misery to my family and they will be help accountable for ... How do I attach the proof of transcripts and one more thing when my mother was finally told she will not get her winnings it was because of a totally different reason altogether ... So my beef is the false hope and not shutting her down and the humiliation and the desperation

And let's just remember the account itself had already been closed so technically the winnings had been wrote off to the casino

Hi suicidehigh,

I'm afraid that doesn't make any difference.

That a support agent has not identified the violation does not change the violation. The terms are clear and easily understood. Where a breach has occurred the responsibility lies with the player.

Even if support were aware of the violation they still would not have the final say in what action is taken. That decision would be made by the security team in the final stage of reviewing the account's activity before any cashout was authorised.

As stated previously, there is nothing we can do to help you in this instance.
