888 Casino trouble

posted on August 28, 2013.

Having recently won £2000 I was quite keen to withdraw my winnings.

However was asked to upload various id documents which wasnt a bother.

However as I used a nickname on my registration the operations department see to be having a problem in dealing with this. Despite all my documentation showing my real name and address and date of birth which is also registered on their site

Meaning that my winnings have been stuck now for a few days and it doesnt appear as if theyre going to be paid before of this.

Not quite sure what to do really, as £2000 is hardly a small win, not in my eyes anyway.

I even sent them front and back of the visa card i had used to make the payments to play.

Anyone got any suggestions on how I should go about dealing with them regarding this

We have reviewed your account.

It appears that you registered with a false name, a complete mismatch to your actual name, and is this is the cause for the document requests you have experienced.

It is clearly stated in our terms and conditions that you should register in your actual name.

We cannot pay your winnings to you with the account being registered to the false name that you have used.

To resolve this, you need to update your name on the account.

Please reply to the email sent to you yesterday, and advise that you used a nickname, confirm that your real name is as per your documents, and we will make the necessary changes to expedite your payment.

Hi thanks for the reply.

I have emailed up to six times stating that I used a nickname rather than my real name as mistake I didnt realise it would cause a problem as I deposited using my real name.

I have sent the relevant identification documents ie driving licence, visa card that I use to make deposits as well as a utility bill all showing my real name, address and date of birth.

Please can you update my account with that accordingly.

Thank you

Ok thanks for the quick reply.

The name on my account has changed now accordingly.

I spoke to your support at 888 casino and they stated that regardless of the fact I requested withdrawal on monday it will take another three days to process and then come payable. This seems a little unfair since it is instant to make a deposit but now they are claiming six days for it just to sit in my account before I can withdraw.

Can you shed any light on this? I was under the assumption that it takes three days to process and it has been three days as I requested withdrawal at exactly 3pm on the Monday.

Many thanks

we will process his cashout - it will be sent to the method you requested, and then it is a question of how long the bank take to process this (usually not more than 72 hours).

Any further queries, please can you direct them to Support, as we see the case now as resolved.
