I have been gambling online for 8 years now and spent probably over a million. My 'total game play' might be somewhere around 25 mio. All casino accounts I have opened (via AskGamblers) have always been examined by me on AskGamblers, I like to play at fair and reputable casino's. I have a positive track record and large game plays at many of them. My faith in the online gambling industry has always been high and I have always been telling people: "as long as you select reputable, licensed and audited casino's, you are better off than in your local casino due to the high RTP of online casino's".
Right now, I am afraid that I cannot be that big spender and ambassador for the online gambling industry anymore. On Tuesday night 14th / Wednesday morning 15th I deposited EUR 7100,- in total at CasinoLuck. After make my last deposit for the 'night', EUR500,-, I was finally lucky. While playing EU20,- per bet on the game Renegades, which I recently discovered and which is one of my favorites now, I got a bonus game. During the first free spins, my balance went up form 500 to over 2500. Than the bonus game got retriggered and I was extremely excited since my balance went up from 500 to over 2500 in the first spins only and I had a lot of spins left. With over EUR20,- per bet, one might expect that my EUR 7100,- loss that night might be deducted big time or even turn out to be a win! But, unfortunately, short after the retrigger of the bonus game, "my session timed out". This was an error from CasinoLuck in the middle of an active and retriggered bonus game. No lost connection, no internet problems, just a session which was timed out by CasinoLuck. Normally, one can experience this while not being active for a while due to safety purposes, which is good. But I was in the middle of a EUR20,- per bet retriggered bonus game.
Well, this is not convenient and spoils the excitement of the moment a bit, but I experienced similar situations at other casino's before and after logging back in I always found that my balance was in order and the pending bonus games were continued, so fair enough. But not this time. After logging back in, my balance was down to approx. EUR 500,- which was my balance right before the bonus game started. All the bonus games were gone. I tried some low value bets on the game Renegades, hoping that my previous session would be restored but none of this all.
I immediately tried to contact live chat but they were closed. Than I immediately sent an e-mail explaining the situation and asking for help. I stayed up until the morning in order to be able to contact live chat as soon as they 'opened up'. No solutions were given at that moment, they escalated it to the technical department. I contacted live chat later that day in a really polite way, they told me that they 'really needed me to be a little bit more patient'. A day later, I received an e-mail from them:
We thank you for playing at CasinoLuck and hope you are enjoying.
I am writing to inform you that our technical department has checked your bets and as per our Disconnection Policy this round was automatically finished for you when the connection was lost. The 2500 coin win depends on the coin value you had. In this case the coin value was less than 1.00.
I would also like to let you know that you have 50 free spins on Astrodice waiting for you to use.
Well, in this e-mail they admit that there was a 2500 coin win in total but they claim that my coin value was less than 1.00. That is not true. My last bets were under 1.00 just to try to restore my previous session. So, it is not about my last few bets, this is about the bets before that. I gave them an exact time window. And those bets are gone. As well as my balance and bonus games. I cannot find these bets back in my game history either. But I can prove that I deposited large amounts of money. Sometimes in that (14 - 15 November) session EUR 1200,- in less than 25 minutes (500+200+500). Please tell me, how can I spend 1200 in 25 minutes with such low bets?
I replied to this e-mail but did not get any respond. Until I was contacted by a personal VIP Account manager who called me for a promotion. She was not aware at all of the issue and told me that her colleague sending the initial e-mail was ill at home. I explained the situation to her. She would sort it out for me and come with a solution. I waited for days and after 5 days I sent a polite e-mail to [email protected] in which I asked for an update. No response. 27 hours later I sent another reminder. No response. Than I contacted live chat. I had to explain my situation all over again. Please see screenshot. Regina, my VIP accountmanager called my yesterday afternoon confirming what I was told on livechat. During my first telephone call a week earlier she asked me for proof and screenshots. How can I have screenshots if my session is timed out by Casinoluck and instantly after, I am redirected to the lobby to log back in? Should I make screenshots every split second while playing in order to be able to proof should anything go wrong? Nice business is this..! So, when she called me yesterday she confirmed again that 'there is nothing I can proof'. We cannot do anything for you. I am ready to send all e-mails over to AskGamblers upon their request. I have offered CasinoLuck to find a solution together without third party interference for 5 times. There is no other option left than filing a compliant here. AskGamblers, if you want to check my trackrecord at over 10 high ranked and / or AskGamblers certified casino's please let me know.
