Unfair Treatment at Riva Poker

Complaint Info
Disputed casino Riva Poker
Reason Declined payment
Posted on May 16, 2014

Dear Sir ,

I am joining this Riva Poker (www.rivapoker.com) by taking advantage of their free risk GBP40 offer. This risk free offer is offered by their live chat customer service.

After depositing GBP40 via Neteller, I am playing poker game and fortunate enough, I won another GBP40 with a fews of good hands.

Subsequently, I am choosing a 2 person poker table and the lady luck is really at my hand. I won again and thereafter, I am making a cashout of GBP115 (net winnings of only GBP75).

Immediately, Riva Poker suspended my account and alleged that there is a "collusion play" and asking for my ID and address verification documents.

Without delay, I sent out my passport and bank statement. Then, I also receive their telephone call from them also.

Furthermore, I also sent out email explaining there is definitely no collusion play involved as that player is a big fish. I do nothing wrong by winnings his money.

After nearly 1 month, I got no response from them. I have emailed them for more than 30 times but still got no response and they are totally ignore email.

Please help. Thank you

What I could say after reading your reply is - FALSE ACCUSATION.

I recalled when I play at your poker site in the following manner:

a) After my first deposit of 40 pounds, I played at the 6 person table, from there, I won another 30 pounds.

b) second time of login into your poker site, I play at the 2 person table and fortunately enough, there is a BIG fish, who subsequently lose another 30 pounds for me.

c) after verifying myself, your poker site is so generous and give me a free bonus of 15 pounds, thereafter, I made my withdrawal for the total of 115 pounds.

By claiming that I have breach your terms and conditions by using "collusion play" is something I can't accept. This is nothing but a false accusations.

I am fully co-operate during the time of suspension of account but it seems that Riva Poker is never co-operate with player and suspend and cancell ALL withdrawal, including denying in refund of initial deposit . This is a serious misconduct and unethical practice of online poker site which put player's right in no protection whatsoever.

Riva Poker definitely owe me an acceptable explanation and I only need a fair and responsible solution. I would not let you to "STEAL" my winnings and my own money deposit just with this excuses to fool your player.

For Askgambler's.com, please do not remove this complaint because this is a true story of what is going on with Riva Poker with the player.

Thank you

Dear Riva Poker players or other potential players,

With immediate effect, kindly refrain yourself from playing at this rogue poker site.

Riva Poker has used a very attractive 100% free risk chips to attract new players into their site and subsequently, they locked your account and will never entertain your email. There is 100% that you will never receive your winnings or your intial deposit eventhough you are fully co-operate with them by sending your ID and bank statement. Their reason is very simple - you fail to comply their terms and conditions.

If you are one of their players, please immediately withdraw all your monies and play at other poker site. Of course, I wish good luck to you. Hope your money will be withdrawn succesfully.

Please help to spread the news among your friends or any players by way of facebook, twitters or your personal blog. This is definitely a cheated poker/casino sites.

Thank you.
