On November 14 2018 I requested a withdrawl in the amount of 76,000.00. I won this amount playing Let It Ride in the Bovado Casino. I have made withdrawls before on this site but always under 5000.00 and i used bitcoin. This time i requested a check by courier. On Nov, 17th 2018 i Received a email approving my withdrawl for 75,700.00 ( they applied some courier fees). Then on Nov, 23rd they sent an email stating thatmy account has been temporarily disabled and that i am under investigation for suspicious activity. Obviously i was shocked until i started really learning of customers similar problems with this site. Funny thing is, this was Their Casino not the sports book or poker. I am attaching all emails for evidence. I have attempted to call this Casino several times and keep getting the run around. I hope AskGamblers can intervene in some way.

Our apologies for the delayed response.

We reviewed the account and results of the investigation, and see that due to a system malfunction, the player was able to benefit from a stuck winning hand that was being re-credited multiple times in error. The player was able to exploit this several hundred times, and as a result, the erroneous credits, and winnings generated from them, were forfeited in compliance with our terms of service 6.9:


6.9 Abuse of System Vulnerability. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that an Account sought to or actually did exploit any hardware or software error, malfunction, "bug" or other vulnerability, we shall immediately close such Account and all Account balances, including both deposits and any winnings, shall be immediately forfeited. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that such activity is occurring, the Account(s) may, in our sole and absolute discretion, be disabled and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited. In such event, we expressly reserve the right to initiate civil legal proceedings and report such activities to authorities in support of criminal investigations and charges, as appropriate.

We understand that this was not an ideal situation, and RAK187 was not the only player affected by this flaw. All accounts were handled in accordance with the rule above, and we are confident that it will not happen again in the future.

RAK187’s deposit amount remains in their account and they can contact us at any time to request a withdrawal.

Please don't forget to forge all documents to proof your point. Just realized that Bovado did not even renew the license to operate. So im sure they have a underpaid tech guy in the back forging said proof. Of course why not, it is 76,000 dollars right? What a joke. And as far as my deposit money that's great that you didn't steal that too. Of course I'm banned from signing in so my access to that is blocked. Also this "glitch" you keep mentioning, i wonder if the shoe was on the other foot would they reimburse me. lololo. Of course not, because i woundn't know the difference.
