Breaking Our Own Records Again
Year after year, the AskGamblers Casino Complaint Service team keeps outdoing itself with phenomenal results.
Similarly to 2019, the AGCCS squad managed to surpass the total number of all received and reviewed complaints in 2020. Although the total of complaints was already staggering as it was (incredible 9,809 cases), the number of received and reviewed cases in 2020 climbed to the jaw-dropping 11,012 new complaints submitted! This makes more than 12% increase compared to the 2019 stats! Out of all filed cases, 2,373 were accepted and 2,057 complaints resolved.
Unsurprisingly, the number of players who turned to AGCCS for help rose as well, together with the number of casinos.
Namely, in 2020, AGCCS broke the previous record by receiving new complaints from 7,680 players! Remembering the 2019 stats when AGCCS received complaints from 6,804 players, the 2020 number marks a 13% increase! The number of affected casino brands rose from 725 in 2019 to 803 casinos in 2020, as well.
Speedy Resolution, Outstanding Results
Although we thought AGCCS simply can’t get more efficient than they already are, they proved us wrong when they set a new record for complaints speed of resolution –
In 2020, our Complaint team broke the previous record for the complaints average speed of resolution by achieving a staggering 235 hours! Speaking strictly in percentages, that’s 32% faster compared to the 2019 stats when we achieved average complaints resolution time of 347 hours. Impressive! In 2020, the overall resolution success rate landed at 81%.
AGCCS Stats: Accepted and Rejected Complaints
There are many reasons why players submit complaints, and they typically vary from payment issues and software glitches to unsatisfactory account handling, and other.
In 2020, the most common reason for submitting a complaint was payment issues, with 1,907 accepted cases within this category. The total number of accepted complaints landed at 2,373 while rejected complaints reached 8,639.
Why do complaints get rejected in the first place? There are various reasons for complaint rejection which is why it’s essential the complainants are fully aware of the AskGamblers Casino Complaint Service Guidelines.
Some of the most common reasons for complaint rejection are:
- Failing to adhere to casino rules;
- Unsatisfactory information regarding the case in question;
- Insufficient evidence to support the claim;
- Complaints were not casino-related;
- Multiple complaint submissions on the same issue;

Multilingual AskGamblers Casino Complaint Service
It was in 2019 that the AskGamblers Casino Complaint Service got launched for the Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese languages, all on their respective versions of AskGamblers, and kept on thriving in 2020.
In that respect, AGCCS recorded great results with these versions. Namely, the success rate of resolved cases for the Italian version of the website is a phenomenal 100% compared to 2019 while the 2020 success rate for the German version of the website records 48% and for the Spanish 29%! Other versions of the AskGamblers website see an admirable increase in complaint resolutions, as well.
Players Shared Their Truth
The AskGamblers Casino Complaint Service exists and operates with a very clear and prominent vision in mind: to help players get their justice, and ensure their gameplay is as fair and stress-free as possible.
That we have been doing a good job so far confirm our players’ comments on our services:
“I have always believed that gambling is living by the sword. When you Deposit, Play, and Lose; you walk away to play another day. When you Deposit, Play, and Win; your Withdrawal should be Paid as advertised. Sometimes Casinos do not always play by those rules and you lose hope. When this happens and everything you do seems helpless, Salvation has a name and it is AskGamblers.”
“I've been going to askgamblers.com for a long time now. These guys are the best! I've been to other sites but nothing beats AG ....everything is accurate with reviews and information about casinos. Whenever I've needed to find out something about a casino, AskGamblers has and always will be my first port of call: and not just for reviews. They've helped me out a few times with "issues" that have occurred with casinos.
I’m quite confident in recommending them as a very professional and trustworthy organisation”.
Similarly, another Casino Complaint Service user said:
“Dealing with online casinos is always tricky. While they need to make a profit and avoid difficult banking transactions and costs, players want to be fairly compensated. Who understands how they operate and who has "inside contacts" is there to help: that is AskGamblers. You have helped me, and I thank you.”
