Player's Complaint

I had some time this evening and had 10 pound to spare so looked for a good bonus and fancied some bingo and slots. So I searched and found an offer at William hill which was spend 10 pound on bingo and receive 20 pound all slot bonus and 30 pound bingo bonus... so before I deposited I called to clarify and was told to spend the full 10 pound on bingo only and stay and side games are not included. Being eager to play tonight I asked if the bonus was immediate as I want to play tonight they said yes so I was happy with that as I wanted the bonus tonight (busy weekend) however this is not the case the bonus was not credited and when I called they told me to use chat... upon using chat I was told I now need to wait 24-48 hours as it was a technical error what was most alarming is they refuse to send a transcript and when asked if the technical team was open refused to answer repeatedly.... now this isn't good no technical support at night also they do not have the ability to communicate with each internally so if they are large sums at stake this is a major I was annoyed which probably show but I was told they couldn't provide a transcript due to data protection which is rubbish I feel I was conned into depositing with false information had the bonus not been instant I'd have gone elsewhere. I was a fan of William hill until now I've deposit a fair bit on all section ls games/vegas/casino etc I have copied and pasted the transcript please as they would not email it to me.

Hi Ksjnforever - welcome to!

I'm not really sure what you're looking for us to do about this issue. Unfortunately tehcnical issues happen from time to time and while I appreciate that you were frustrated you didn't get your bonus immediately, it's highly likely that this issue will be resolved without our intervention.

With regard to the failure to provide you with a copy of your chat transcript, while the Live Chat operator is wrong and this type of communication is not protected by the Data Protection Act in the way they were inferring, neither is there any legal requirement for the operator to provide this information to you short of a freedom of information request, especially given that you can take a copy for yourself by copying and pasting or taking screen captures.
