Bovada Casino - Withdrawal Problem

I opened an account with Bovada Casino a few years ago. At that time I used my credit card to make the deposits. Besides the fee of about $50.00 per $1000.00 deposit, there was difficulty with my deposits going through. I called Bovada's customer service and was advised to tell my credit card provider that I made purchases online internationally in order to get my deposit approved. After losing about $4000.00 playing poker and having to deal with the difficulties associated with depositing money into my account, I simply quit playing. Recently, I came back using Bitcoin to make my deposits. I played BlackJack with the Welcome Bonuses. There were three bonuses with 150% match each. I deposited $1,000.00 and was matched $1,500.00 each time. I lost a total of $3,000.00 on the 150% match. Next, there were also three bonuses with 100% match. I deposited $1,000.00 and was matched $1,000. I was lucky with this deposit. I reached about $9,500.00 after meeting the play-through requirement. I requested a withdrawal on 02-20-17. I provided my personal I.D. and a bank statement for verification as Bovada requested. Bovada still has not approved my withdrawal . On 03/15/17, I called Bovada. I was asked questions like what games I play and about my betting patterns on BlackJack. Bovada asked me if I always "bet big" playing Black Jack. I told Bovada that I played BlackJack using the basic strategy according to tables published by Wizards of Odds and my betting depended on how I felt at the time. Did they actually think I was counting cards, even with the cards being reshuffled after each hand? It has been more than a month and Bovada has only told me that my account is still under review. No time estimate has been given to me. Please advise me on my options.

Bovada Player Advocacy Team advised me that my account is currently under investigation and I will be contacted. This is what I was told over a month ago. Bovada has given me no time estimate as to how long this investigation will take and no other information. There has been no resolution as yet..
