Grosvenor – Self excluded but could still open an account and deposit


Declined - Complaints related to whether UK players should have been prevented from accessing gambling services are reserved to the management of the UKGC.

Player's Complaint

I registered an account a couple of days ago and deposited £2000. I lost all of the money in a couple of days. Unintentionally I then realised I had a previous account on here under the username of [EDIT] which was self excluded. I contacted customer services and asked for my deposits back but they refused. Whilst the email and phone number differed and for which I don’t consider markers of identity,, my date of birth and my address remained the same. The name on my previous account was under [EDIT], which is still my name though I tend to use my legal name nowadays. I believe grosvenor has acted unfairly and should have blocked my registration at sign up like most other companies. My PayPal email address was also the same on both accounts. I have contacted UKgc and their licensing authority for advice. I request my deposits back ASAP. I have quit betting now and have signed up permanently to GameStop, so I do not care about my winnings.

Hi thekmist - welcome to ThePOGG.com!

Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to help you in this instance. The UKGC reserve management of this type of complaint issue to their own team. All we could do is suggest you contact the regulator.

You may find our free Responsible Gambling app BetBlocker useful. It allows users to restrict their internet capable devices from accessing over 12k gambling operator websites for between 24 hours and 5 years.

Sorry we could not be of more help!

The North American country of Canada shares a border with The United States of America and has coasts on the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific oceans. The population of Canada is currently in the region of 37.8 million people. With regard to the gambling sector, Canada has historically existed in a grey area but in recent years there has been a move towards officially recognizing that casino gaming, slots play, horse racing, lottery play, video lottery play, charitable gaming and interactive gaming are permitted in the country’s borders. There is no land-based licensor, but online gambling appears to be perfectly legal for Canadian citizens who wish to play.


The above information is what we believe to be the the legal status of online gambling, however information on this topic is limited and hard to find. We accept no liability for any errors or ommissions. It is the reader’s responsibility to ensure that they know the legality of online gambling in their country before engaging with any online gambling service.
