have i got a story for you guys...!!

i played on laddies bingo and guess what!

1st game brought a strip cost 25p each book. and 1st line gone, 2nd line came in and guess who won!! me won £23.60 and i was amazed as it was my 1st game of bingo online which i won! then i placed all the money on aussies to beat england in the cricket at 8/1!! so u can work out that i was well paid out for it at the end!! all the 23.60 and plus the rest of the 10 left over which i took out of my credit card went on 8/1!....

i often wonder with the amount of people who win on their first foray into online games such as these whether firms let users win early days to get them hooked.

I am absolutley convinced of that Dammo.

It seems to be like that in every online game.

I had a look around William Hills casino, and found a game called Bejeweled.

I had paid £100 into my account via credit card. Any way, its quite a pretty looking game and nice sounds too. Better still i found myself with £1200 or so in the bank within about 30 mins of playing.

Here comes the kicker. I tried to withdraw the money (there was no bonus amounts involved here BTW). I wanted to withdraw a £1000 to my bank account as the £100 i had placed with the =credit card was the only money i had spent on it, so if i had withdrawn it back to the card i would have been £900 in credit and obviously didnt want that,

Guess what..

Yep they would not let me. They said that becuse i had paid the balance i was playing with into my account on the card, to prevent fraud it had to go back onto the same card for any withdrawal. Now i can understand this to a point, but if the card is in the same name and with the same bank, i don see the problem.

Anyway, after several phone calls and probably an hour of my time i came away absolutley disgusted with the way i was being treated. The reason i wanted to get the money out was because i know what i am like if the money just suits there. I am far better off getting it out, giving it to the missus or buying something with it rather than giving it back.
I know i could have spent it through the card and then paid the card back that way, but it was the priciple of the matter that got to me. It was money i had won fairly from them and they were actually refusing to pay me out.

I dont use their casino any more as you can imagine.


Just a quick warning to anyone else out there who may use them


BTW when i enquired if i had paid cash into the account via quick cash and then wanted to withdraw the money in any other means than cash they said no.

So you can just imagine winning one of the jackpots for 250,00 and then going into the local bookies and giving them a slip of paper saying you want a quarter of million in cash and they will happily oblige to hand it over.

I DONT THINK SO!!!

Withdrawals are seen as a bad thing with most sites :shock: No matter how you win it, they'd prefer you kept it there - one of the reasons I suspect I haven't won much with the bingo. In 4 weeks won about £330 but spent about that (at least) so just under breaking even in bingo terms. But when have won, I been struck with sensibleness & withdrawn it fairly sharpish :oops: The fact I then go on a few days later & stake it is irrelevant :lol:

Is JackpotJoy any good? (in terms of customer service, no eedjits in chat rooms etc) Quite liking bet365's bingo atm (despite above figures lol) - in bet365 bingo rooms can be seen as Vinceytrfc.

There was me thinking was alone in being a bloke who loves bingo :lol:

Interesting comments.
I signed up to moon bingo yesterday. Deposited £10 and got a £30 bonus. Catch is you have to have £30 of your own money or winnings to withdraw. Anyway I now have my account up to £62.99 and able to withdraw the £32.99, but they say I'll lose my £30 bonus they gave me. If it's true and they let you win at first only to lose it all later, would anyone recommend I withdraw it and be done with it?

Is bingo any fun? I've never tried it. I always thought it was a bit dull...

From my personal experience I would say that bingo is one of those games that depends on fortune. To some extent skills and strategies are also applied. But in the battle of skill and luck, luck will win the battle any day. Concentrating on skills section should keep vigil look on your money and bankroll. Also sit near to caller to get information at brisk rate.

I guess we share same interests as far as bingo goes. I also like to play online roulette and even won some big bucks last time when i played. I would like to share my website <please share it using the WWW button> where I play. as per my experience it is very user friendly.
