So I made my third $20 deposit, yet again refusing to take up that 100% bonus offer, simply because I didn't want to be tied down to any restrictions whatsoever. Then I clicked on the game and continued from where I had left it - at the 18 Keys level, where I last got stuck. At first, the dry run persisted for a while, then it finally broke off and started to give me those random features during the base game play, followed by a few Free Spins games. I was relieved, to say the least!
Not too long later, after a few ups and downs of my credit balance, I finally got one Free Spins game that paid 2 times of 5 Wilds, giving me a nice 100x total bet win! Getting 5 Wilds 2 times within 1 Free Spins game is indeed a rarity, but I've gotten it twice before, making this the third time. Luckily, I was playing on $0.20 bets, and that win got my balance up to $82, so I quickly made a withdrawal. A final small win of just $22 may be insignificant to most other players, but to me, it was a win I was chasing after with my 3 deposits, and that made my day nevertheless! Hehehe.
Unfortunately, my withdrawal got rejected at first - the casino wanted a selfie for additional verification, even though my documents had already been approved before this. That made smoke came out of my ears and got me fuming mad! I wrote back to the casino, refusing to comply with that selfie request. After some angry emails to the casino, one casino guy came back with a nice reply (too bad no name was mentioned in that reply), informing me that I could make my withdrawal and that it would be approved!
Oh boy, was I relieved! So I made my second withdrawal claim, and sure enough, the payment got approved, but best of all, the payment was received into my Neteller within just 5 minutes! Whoopie! And I was also very glad that the whole selfie issue got resolved within 24 hours, or else, that would certainly have affected my review rating on Wildblaster Casino even more, hehehe.
