I'll start off by saying I've tried to sort this via William Hill direct without any joy.
So my partner signed up to William Hill and used my card for deposits. She done this playing live roulette and advised that she had got her balance up to just shy of £2000. The account then kicked her out, and on logging back in the balance was at £0
She then contacted the live chat who advised that it was due to the card details not being the same as the William Hill account holder.
She apologised for this, and they confirmed that the DEP10 error she was getting on depositing, was due to this.
They have now refused to refund the monies after stating on live chat that you can't deposit or withdraw to a card not in the account holders name. It also states in their terms that deposits via this method will be treated as invalid.
The agent also confirmed that the system will automatically decline these transactions to protect the safety of players and that it is against their terms to accept this.
They are now refusing to refund after admitting that there would be no winnings allowed to be withdrawn. Surely they can't have it both ways? If you are allowed to deposit you must be allowed to withdraw, if you aren't allowed to withdraw via this method then the deposits technically are invalid and should be refunded.
Is anybody able to help/clarify?
Also, they confirmed the card was registered to another account which was self excluded so therefor deposits via that method would also break their responsible gambling conditions?
I have attached the chat with the agent... any advice would be greatly appreciated.
