How to Get Online Casino to Pay Out?
Over the past few months a lot of casinos have not been paying winnings claiming various legal requirements making it impossible for them to payout.
More often than not there are no real reasons, (legal or otherwise), for Online Casinos not to pay the players out.
The mind game
The real reason why casinos will not pay out winnings is because they are hoping that the players will use the funds, (that they always make available), to play one more time. They hope that between the time you make a payout request and you are actually paid, you will want to gamble again.
I am owed money?
Some casino offer bonus money but do not clearly indicate that you need to ‘play’ that money before you can cash it out.
It makes sense to an extent as it prevent player from simply signing up and cashing out all their bonus cash. But sadly some casinos take it a step further and actually prevent the users from even cashing out winning from the bonus money.
In other words, if you win anything you have no way of cashing it out, (as you would forever have to play any winnings).
A more common practice is to ask the player to play at least 10 times the bonus amount, so if you are given $100.00 then you would need to wager, $1000.00 for example, (even if it is the same bonus money over and over again).
Most reliable casinos will indicate how much you can cash out and how much you still need to play before you can cash out.
Casino is not paying, what can be done?
The one thing to remember is that online casinos have been known to take sometime up to 12 weeks before paying out. More often than not you should not expect any form of payment in less than a week.
Send emails, letter, faxes, some casinos do respond to complaints.
