I at least seemed to satisfy them with the accusation of my alleged play outside of Nevada. Here is their response to my honest explanation that I never played outside Nevada, but may have accidentally had a proxy server on when playing.



The very fact that they even require an explanation shows that they do not deserve a good reputation at all (and probably never did). Imagine taking chips to the cashier and being required to explain your history of buying or winning them before getting paid. I would just say "please give me my money" and they would give me my money. On the extremely rare occasion they don't give me my money everyone would agree they are the ones who are wrong.

If they really did have any concern about someone placing a bet outside of Nevada, they would have a system to make sure the bet couldn't be made if there is any question at all (such as when using a proxy). Many others do it that way. The only possible reason I can think of why they wouldn't do that is because they want a shot at being able to steal money.

You would think they would be happy if you were such a good customer you played them while traveling. However, I've heard of this kind of thing before. Neteller shut down my account when I logged in from Hong Kong and it was a major epic to reopen it.

Internet gambling in general just goes to show that prohibition is worse than the alternative.

While we are at it. I think you have voiced your disapproval before about this. Not InterTops(that I know of, yet) but another well known casino that''s approved by many has automatic auto hold on their VP(you can change the hold if you wish). It's absolutely atrocious. I'll give you an example: It holds a dealt flush and even a pay pair over a 4 card Royal. IIRC it held a 3 flush over a pair in joker poker. There are way too many bad holds to remember and list. It's just god awful.

Yes, I do disapprove of that. Can you just tell me who it is?

I want to know why the hell they would even offer a mobile version of the casino if they don't even expect you to play out of your home state on your regular account!?

All I'm saying is that if Google made me jump through hoops to get my E-Mail restored just because I checked GMail from a different state (whether real, imagined or due to proxy use) I'd be furious!

Meh. Spielo Pick N' Play machines do the same thing, just not as egregiously bad. The Pick N' Play states on the help screen something to the effect that the holds are just made based on the greatest probability of getting a winning hand. I've also seen incorrect holds on Game King units, at least on the few that I have seen autohold at all...they weren't as bad, though.

I'm happy to say the withdrawal of my remaining $860 came through today. I actually received $905.85, because the value of Bitcoin went up 5.33% since I put in the withdrawal.

Me too. An Indian casino had NSU for dollars, Game Kings, when I first started playing there. It wasn't too bad, just enough to slow me down while correcting the occasional error. They fixed the problem eventually, they got rid of them and now their best is under 99%. :-(

I don't expect them to be 100% correct. However, what I have been seeing I would consider a blatant rip off.

I would have to think about it and test some more but it seems to be holding whatever is the most likely to give you any payback even it its totally against the correct hold.

You read more like an Intertops spokeswoman alright.



Emphasis mine. Personal insult, three-day suspension.



@Wizard @djatc
Sorry for he/she mate – copy&paste foul from review of an online casino by angry customer.

There is a site Trustpilot com that posts reviews for just about everything. online gambling is very popular but with the worst reviews I’ve seen. u can look at bet365 one of the largest internet casinos in the world. they sponsor bigtime european soccer.

bet365
Reviews 530 • Bad

"This company has claimed its Trustpilot profile, but to our knowledge, doesn't actively invite its customers to write reviews on Trustpilot."

cos the reviews are bad.. the positive reviews come only from the casinos in point. they all part of new organized crime and stay alive cos they bribe governments of small countries.

The worst act the online bandits do is when a rare winner tries to withdraw money from their accounts.. an endless process of documenting.. the internet casinos might seem good places to unassuming patrons for as long as they keep betting (ie losing).. most custyomers lose so they dont have to go thru the withdrawal nightmare.

An angry mom (she factor again!) on Trustpilot -
"Fraud.
Thanks to you, my son was accused of fraud.
What kind place it’s this? That get people in so much trouble."
Even a wizard was accused of frau! And he “would have personally recommended them”!! Wizard playing slots?? whats wrong with this picture?
