Betmotion Casino - Won't accepts swedish passport as ID, and that's my only ID

posted on July 17, 2015.

I won 700 Euro on the 60GOT signup offer.

On the site you have to type in your social security number and check a box if it's an ID card or a passport.

Later i got an email from betmotions risk department asking me for KYC.

"Dear Mr. Robin XXX

We would like to inform that to process the withdrawal you need to send us a proof of residence, it must be a picture of the paper which can be any utility bill with your name that arrives at your home, the ID you registered in the site, and a photo that appears your face close to your ID, the department requested it. This is a verification to confirm that you really are the owner of the doc.
Awaiting for your documents. "

Since i Checked the box for passport at their site I sent in a pic of my swedish passport and a pic of me and the passport aswell.

Now they claim that they cant approve my ID since its a 'security risk'

I had a long chat with support and they say that i gotta send in a National ID card wich I dont have.

Not because I can't get one, just because I just dont have a need for it here in sweden.
If I need to identify myself, my passport will do it for me. (In Sweden as all other countries in the world)

Ofcourse I could go to the police, pay 400 sek and get a national ID in 30 days.
but that's not the point here.
The point is that they asked for my passport since i checked that box and inserted my social security number, Now the decline my passport witch is in perfect shape with no other reason than a 'security risk' witch i find pretty odd.
I don't wanna make the claim the they are trying to get rid of me and take my money but that's how I feel.

I can say that Unibet, nexcasino, casinosaga, betsson, maria, expect and nordicbet have all accepted my passport as verification.

I am aware that I have to deposit atleast 10 eur to get my money out and I will as soon as they approve my Passport.

I will gladly upload the pics i sent them to a mod on askgamblers to verify this story.

So, after telling them 4 times in 3 days that i do not own/have an national ID nor drivers licence they still send me this.

"Dear Mr. Robin,

I have asked numerous times why they wont just accept my ID witch is my passport.
No answers just the above statement and that is is a risk.

I really hope Betmotion will answer this and also as the most important part. FIX THIS.

I guess Betmotion has shown their true colors.

Even tho they have promised me every day since this came up to answer before the time runs out, they did not.

Dear @yeahsurexxx,
Any updates regarding your complaint?
Thank you.

no, no answer why they dont accept my passport. They keep refering to a security risk with no explenation.
Also they upped the wagering from15x to 60x after i already had wagered the money and forced me to wager anoter 3500 eur wich is wierd and imo just another way of getting away with their scam.

I actually got lucky and wagered the 3500 and have over 900 in the account.

Still, I have to get a new id since they wont accept my perfectly fine passport.

So I guess I just have to wait for that.

i would not recommend anyone to use betmotion due to this.

I guess this matter will be unsolved.
