RESOLVED

I signed up to the "grand reef casino" The other day (16/11/2012), I play on many sites normally for poker, I saw this site advertised on T.V so i thought id give it ago, I checked out there website and thought great! A "$25 FREE SIGN UP BONUS" it said "Welcome to Grand Reef Casino! Get started with $25 on us! The moment you have created your real money account, we will automatically issue you with a free bonus of $25! You don't need to deposit a cent, if absolutely free. Once you have received your free sign up bonus, you will then be eligible for our fantastic Welcome Bonus Package – we’re just giving money away!

" SO i signed up as it said on there site for "real money" I thought it would be great the free $25 as i like to see new sites before depositing money, Well theres where it started! I talked to the online support and Know you don't get $25 free, You can only get that if you somehow get a random email out of the blue from some marketing people that has the link to get the bonus, (None of this was said on there page at all) I then rang there 0800 Number, Which the guy told me you could again only get if you were selected out of random, and if your from New zealand or Aus, I Live in Nz i told him, I started questioning how if they don't have my email how am i ever ment to recieve this bonus, I asked how many had evern got this "Free Bonus" He clearly couldnt tell me, All he kept repeating was for me to deposit and now! Why? Why would i when i have never played this site before? He then told me if i didnt deposit, or if i write online about this my account will be deleted? Really!? I am going to publish what is said under there T&C for this bonus, But i can't see how they get away with not actually paying it out when they say they will. ANYONE ELSE HAD TIS SAME BULLSH*T?

Hi there,

We apologize for any frustration caused to the complainant, but are happy to confirm that the player has been credited with the $25 bonus.

This particular bonus is outside of the regular welcome bonus at Grand Reef Casino, and is used in only a handful of marketing campaigns. Additionally, it is only available to new players from Australia and New Zealand. Under normal circumstances, new players coming in via marketing material for these campaigns have the bonus automatically credited to their balances upon initial login to the casino software. If this does not occur, then it is sometimes difficult to justify the player's claim to the bonus, as there should theoretically be no manual intervention required.

Whilst we are looking into why this player was shown the $25 free bonus when, based on the description of how the player was referred to Grand Reef Casino, it should not have occurred, the player has been credited with the bonus. We sincerely hope that the player accepts this token of our appreciation and has an enjoyable experience at Grand Reef Casino.

Sincerely,

Grand Reef Casino
