Betsafe Casino - Closed my account and 140,000 SEK balance without explanation

UNRESOLVED

I registered on betsafe a while ago and built up my deposit to a good amount of money. Later on i noticed that i had miss-spelled my e-mail adress. There was a number missing. So naturally i contacted their support that was very friendly and told me to email them some verification documents. As i did i contacted them over telephone to see that everything was fine and they tell me that it is and the account should be open soon.

It goes a couple of days and i contact their support once more who answers me through mail and tells me that my account is closed and my funds will be held. When i ask them how come they tell me that i haven't followed their rules.

When i ask for a explanation and ask them if this is a joke they simply tell me that i can't get any more information and that i already approved that through the registration. Now i don't know what to do they tell me to contact MGA.

I know that it's not alright to write incorrect information but the only matter is that i during the registration forgot the last number.

I've done a telephone verification, and sent in id and utility bills for confirmation. Besides that i had a good amount of money in my account. Around 140 000 SEK.

I really need to get some help with this and can't get why or how a casino of this size can do anything like this.

Hi,

We could not verify the account and it was therefore permanently closed. As advised by our Customer Support department I advise the customer to contact MGA if he wish to take the case further.

It seems as a easy thing for you to do is to say that you couldn't verify my documents. How come i haven't had these problems in any other casino? I've done a facial verification, a phone etc. If this is true so verify for askgamblers that the documents are unable to be verified.

Hi,

Our regulator is MGA, you are welcome to raise any complaint you might have with them.

Yes you've already mentioned that but now we have a open complaint here and it seems as you don't want to take this public. I still think that if i've made anything wrong as you accuse me of then provide us with proof instead of sending it to MGA that what i can see isn't the fastest solution.

The only wrong i maid is forgetting a digit in the registration process. And according to you that would be solved easily without any problems.

Show Askgamblers team proof of any kind that i have broke against any rule. I want my account to be opened and my funds back.

We will not share this documentation with a 3rd party.

I hope this answers your question and thank you for your understanding.

Unfortunately, despite player's explicit will, Betsafe Casino did not provide the necessary information to AskGamblers Complaints Team so that the complaint could be adequately reviewed and decided. Obviously, we have no other option but to close the complaint as Unresolved and recommend the player to forward their issue directly in front of the relevant regulatory body responsible for Betsafe Casino.

As soon as AskGamblers Complaints Team is being notified about the regulator's final decision on the case, we will comply and mark this complaint accordingly.
