ed an account with leo vegas deposited £100 and played for a while and managed to accumulated £600 and withdrew. Two days after withdrawing my account gets blocked so I ring up the casino to find out why and they say they don't know the relevant department is dealing with it. So I tried again and again and it wasn't till a further 3 days and threatening to complain and take it higher that they told me I had previously had an account that I self excluded. So wait I self excluded from your casino and you let me open another account and deposit and it isn't till a win and withdraw that the casino blocks me!!!! The customer service is appalling at this casino I didn't accept any deposit bonus are abuse any bonus policy because I never accept the bonuses. How do they get away with just taking peoples money like this. Surley there is some law against it. Bet I wouldn't have got blocked if I lost money!!!!!

Leo vegas have offered deposit refund which I am not happy with. I gambled with my own money and won, I didnt accept any bonus and was unaware that I had previously self exluded from leo vegas but which being the case I should have been blocked at sign up or trying to deposit. Leo vegas are to blame as well as me. I will be taking it further because you don't help people that have self excluded by robbing them point blank, you help them by not letting them re sign up!

In there terms it basically says if they don't want to pay they won't and they will try there damp best to get away with it. Donate my winnings to a charity of my choice then u will be partly satisfied rather than keeping it you theives

If you read reviews on leo vegas they do this to a lot of players, if you self exlude it's there Christmas all at once because if you win they keep it and refund deposit if you lose well you got it they keep that as well. Win win for leo vegas robbing the small people to keep the top man rich!
