Payout - Do I have a hope?
Posted 18 February 2012 - 02:07 AM
I recently joined a Playtech casino and was lucky enough to win a jackpot of approx $11000 of which I can only cash out $10000 in any 30 day period but that is not the issue. I live in Australia and we have a virtual credit card program called VCard. You purchase a voucher from participating outlets, then you need to register the voucher on the VCard website which then generates a Credit card number, Verification number (3 digits on the back of you normal credit card) and an expiry date and from there you can use it for online purchases as with any other credit card.
My dilemma is that we only have one Vcard account and that is in my partners name and of course I have used a vcard to make the deposit to the casino so I guess technically it is not in my name it is in my partners who is also a member of the same casino but did not use the card in question to deposit there.
I also have a debit card which I had used to previously deposit and have requested the withdrawal to this card, everything seemed ok and I provided a copy of my ID and the debit card as they requested and they were accepted and approved by the casino. A few hours later I got an email asking for a copy of the other card that I had registered on my account which of course is the vcard...... so I sent them a copy of the voucher and a screen shot from the VCard website showing the generated card no. and expiry date and my partners name. I received an email back saying:
Please note that we have received the copies of your card ending in 1929, however we were unable to approve them.
Please note that the names that the card is registered under differ from the ones you have registered on your account with us. Due to this, we are unable to approve the card's copies.
There was no mention of the pending withdrawal at all in this email just the fact that they could not approve the copies I had sent. I replied to the email asking how this would affect my pending withdrawal but I have not received a reply from them as yet. Can they flat out refuse to honour my withdrawal? I don't believe I have done anything underhanded unless the fact that the card is registered in my name on my casino account is all they need....... Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

with any luck they will just slap you on the wrist and give you your money but it's hard telling.

I made the withdrawal Saturday and I am glad to say that it has indeed been honoured! The casino has processed it from their end and now I am waiting for it to hit my visa account.
Cheers and thanks for the comments it's always good to get some feedback, positive or negative!
