Can an online casino allow you to make multiple despoits of up to 35k in a space of hours without any checks?

I am a gambling addict and they allowed this with out any due care. Just been a miserable month having to have to get over this traumatic nightl

Sory ft if I sound harsh it's not my intention just deal with facts xxxThey have deposit settings as a tool. So say you wanted to deposit no more than 10k a month then tried to increase it to 20k it says you have 24 hour cooling off period. It's a casino at end of day, designed to take everyone's money and not give anything back. If you had won £60k would you be wondering the same question?

No not harsh at all, your just telling the truth. Although you just feel there is something very wrong when a random person can gamble that much so easily, although if you wanted to make a large purchase for something else there would be so many layers you would have to go through. I remember gambling at a casino and they would not let me take out more than 4 k from my card.

They did run checks on me when i played 100k worth of bets on BJ per day but never stopped me. I only deposited few hundreds per day though

What sort of checks did they do? Did they ask you to show proof of income?

Yes, wanted to know what job I do, who I work for, wanted to see my payslips., once they got it they let me get on with my gaming/loosing.

I dont want to sound like a sore loser although I am 🙂 But 35k in a space of a few hours without any interaction or ID seems suspect to me. Maybe grounds for a complaint?

Sure go for it what can you loose?.. but I would not hold my breath if I was you. Would anyone stop you spending 35k on a car, watches etc? probably not... you might have better chance with speaking to your bank.. why did they allow it...

Sorry Dave if I have gone away from the theme of this forum. I just feel that online casinos are a law on to them selves and totally accept that the onus should be on us to stop gambling. However to just let someone deposit that much money without at least querying that the gambler knew what he was doing just does not seem right to me.

To be fair to my bank, they did actually ask me what I was doing and I told them that the transactions where by me.

I honestly think you just need to let it go and accept the loss...

Unfortunately it sounds like you were pretty determined to gamble and you would probably of complained if they tried to stop you depositing the money anyway.

The casino wants to make as much money as they can, they aren't going to make it too difficult for their most important customers (CG's) to gamble.

Accept this loss (and the ones that follow if you do not quit) and try to move on. Look at the bigger picture and tackle the real issue.

All the best

I've been in a similar situation and sent pleading emails.

I'm sorry to say that every online casino lets you set your own deposit limit. So it's your fault if you lose.

I wish I could say no they are not allowed and heres how to get your money back but alas it's not.

I fought against them with threats of lawyers but then suddenly realised they are right I am wrong I am an addict.

I won't say it's gets better cos it don't. Working to pay of gambling debts is hell. I suppose eventually when the debts are clear yes there is a glimmer of light.

I sincerely wish you luck.
