I first requested a withdrawal from Bovada in May for just over $4k and the request was processed and approved immediately. Fast forward 3 weeks later, and I still hadn't received the money (it was supposed to come as a bank wire). I get a response from someone in their financial services department saying that the name on my bank account didn't match the name on my Bovada profile (fair enough, I have my middle name listed on my bank account but not on my profile with Bovada). I can understand why this was a problem, but why wasn't this brought to my attention before? They let my request sit idle for nearly 3 full weeks and only told me about the issue after I had already asked about it.
Second request - I submit a bank wire withdrawal which was processed and approved on June 8th for just over 4k and I still have not received my money from them. I have sent them multiple screenshots of the transactions from my online banking to show them that I hadn't received anything and I'm still continuing to get the run around from everyone I try to contact regarding the issue. Bottom line - stay away from these guys, sometimes they pay you, sometimes they don't, and if nothing else, they take WAY too long to process a simple wire withdrawal. They are deliberately delaying sending me the money and it's beyond aggravating at this point as I've been trying to get a withdrawal from them for almost two months now.
