New Message at Slots Galore

7 replies • Last post

This is very strange!

I play mainly at Lucky Red and Slots Galore, and the games are completely different at the two. I haven't played at Slots Galore for a while, and I just signed in and received THIS MESSAGE:

Please be advised that there are no deposit options
available in your region. However, you are still free
to play, redeposit and request withdrawals if needed.

What the heck does that mean, and how can it change so fast? Is this going to be a new trend for us U.S. players? And how can we be "still free to redeposit," if "there are no deposit options?" I mean, hellooooo that makes no sense to ME, unless I am missing something?

Anyone know what is going on? I received no email message about not being able to deposit there, or anything of the sort. Seems to me that would be right to send out an email announcement to all players BEFORE we sign in and see that confusing message.

Help, please! Smile

Also, thank goodness I only have 27 cents in my account, or I would be angry for no warning of this!

Now I am down to casinos with the same type of games. Good-bye variety. Sad

I had a couple of faves at Slots Galore, too.

Just talked to Chat and the redeposit option is for those who would make withdrawals, only. They said they just found out "suddenly six days ago." I told them it would have been thoughtful of them to at least send their customers an email warning, instead of waiting until people sign in to find out. Said they would pass that onto management. Looks like a "wait and see" situation, but if you have more info, I would be interested in hearing it.

Any U.S. casinos that you can recommend to me, you all, that you REALLY like and where you have FUN! Smile I am kind of tired of Lucky Red, and I never seem to win anything there anyway. Maybe I will have to go back to poker for a while, lol. That is if I can find a US poker room!

Hi hope, unfortunately it looks like these guys are closing down. They stopped accepting new players about a month ago and now it seems they have cut of deposits so that players can either withdraw their money or play with what remains.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

U.S. friendly casinos are getting thinner on the ground these days. The risks and costs associated with processing the deposits and withdrawals of players are high. If you want something unique you could give 3Dice a try, assuming they can accept your deposits.

Awwww....that is too bad, Ed! I know their games weren't like the cool, more modern type games at all the other casinos, like Lucky Red, etc., but that entire set of casinos has all the same, exact games. So, like I said, I enjoyed having a little variety, and I really did have a couple of favorites over there.

Slots Galore also had some REALLY nice perks, a great VIP program, fun sweepstakes, AND THEE BEST tournaments as far as payouts! That is REALLY too bad that they are closing down altogether. Sad

It is also sad that US laws are becoming such an obstacle to (or should I say continue to be) and now spilling over to even the best poker sites. I think it is really ridiculous, but I don't think "they" care what I think, lol.

I will take a peek at 3Dice, Ed, and as always, I appreciate your advice and always thorough information...along with your prompt responses!

Thanks so much! Smile

No problem Hope. Its sad to see these casinos go, they really are/were well run and fun to play.

Its especially annoying when you see other dodgy rip-off joints that have been preying on players for years continue to operate in the same environment!
