Rizk Casino - Delayed Withdrawal Again

Complaint Info
Disputed casino Rizk Casino
Reason Delayed payment
Amount £ 50
Posted on September 24, 2018

I submitted a withdrawal of £50 9 days ago and I have still not received the payment, it still says "pending approval" in my transactions. This is the second time in a month I've had a withdrawal that isn't going back into my bank so could you please tell me if this is an ongoing problem? As i cant really stomach playing when I have to wait 10 days or more to receive any withdrawal.

Hello WIEM,

The reason for why your £50 withdrawal has not been paid out yet is due to a pending verification,which our security team sent you an email about 14 days ago. We have asked them to re-send it so you know how to proceed with the account verification, so you'll get to enjoy your winnings as soon as possible.

Considering I never received this email originally and I also made a withdrawal within the last month (that i also had to post about due to being delayed) that didn't require this identification, this is starting to seem a lot shadier than a normal casino site.

Could you please let me know details of who or where I could take this higher, or look to take legal action/advice against this.

I've had plenty of withdrawals previous to the last 30 days without a hitch, now suddenly, my first transaction was delayed to human error and my next one requires sensitive information that I do not wish to give out and am completely within my rights to withhold.

I'd also like to note, they have currently blocked my account and are still holding the money.

I don't want a generic response, I want you to directly address the above as this is a bit insane.

Hello WIEM,

First of all, your account is open and not blocked. Secondly, we fully understand your frustration and you feeling suspicious after having one bad withdrawal experience (caused by a human error, but properly compensated) and now straight away a verification of your Rizk account, but we can assure you that these are in no way related, but unfortunately we are required to do the verification now on your Rizk account , due to requirements from UK Gambling commission. Please see paragraph 5 ni our terms & conditions.

We have sent you a clear email regarding the verification and other questions you may have.

You mentioned previously that I was sent an email regarding verification in the first place, which I wasn't. As previously stated, I'm uncomfortable giving the details that are being requested and am well within my rights to not have to give that information according to regulatory law. Can I please have the contact that I could get in touch with to take this complaint higher and in a formal manner, as I'm really not happy with how this has been dealt with and the fact I was lied to on different occasions anyway.

I'd like to close my account and have the money in the pending withdrawal returned and I do not want to give personal details, including my home address, images of my debit card and identification to do so.

I'd prefer to respond through this platform, as emails are too easy for me to be passed off or to be fobbed off easily.

Hello WIEM,

Could you please check your spam folder in your email as we have sent the verification email to you two times two days ago? We are very sorry that you would like close your Rizk account, but unfortunately this account is only Rizk's AskGamblers representative account, so you will have to contact our customer support team to do it the official and legally correct way. The same goes with official complaints to authorities.

However, we would of course like to see you being our customer. Our customer support team will help you out with the verification if you need it.

I have received that one, but I never received the first one you claimed to have sent. As previously stated I'm not comfortable sending over personal details of my address, bank card and personal id, after the issues I've encountered.
