Upon opening account, I used the GBP20 bonus to bet on Roulette and making a winnings. I know that Roulette is counted as 20% towards the wagering requirement. Thereafter, I played Blackjack and slot game and finally fulfilled the wagering requirement which allow me to cashout (GBP204). I make a deposit of 10GBP and requesting for a cashout and no more receiving any bonus thereafter.
After 10 days, they replied to me saying that I have used the free bonus to play on EXCLUDED games and all winnings voided. However, their terms and conditions never mention that Roulette is excluded game , it is just a game of counting 20% to wagering requirement, and never mention that Roulette cannot be played using the free bonus.
Obviously, Vernons Casino cheats player and saying something not appear in their publised terms and conditions. This is totally unacceptable.
I sincerely hope ASKGAMBLERS'COM can file a complaint to this type of cheating casino and as a warning to other players never join there.
