Site refusing to pay withdrawal without photo id

2 replies • Last post

Recently won a large amount on a slot site, I have deposited on the site and had registered my bank card etc.

After i had won and asked to withdraw i have a problem in that they will only accept a passport id. I do not have a passport but they refuse to take any other form of id.

They have advised me to apply for one and they will pay 50.00 towards the cost?? now this seems a excessive way of proving your id.

I am not even sure that the offer would stand? and the matter is further complicated as I would have to get copies of my divorce papers and marriage certificate adding further to the cost.

I do not want or need a passport, I could be waiting weeks, it would involve a cost of around 160.00 inc copies of certificates etc

Can anybody give me some advice please?

Hi jude sheriff!
First of all, it will be interesting to know name of this casino, from this depends a lot(generally it is depends if CL-Ed will be able to help somehow or no).
But generally this is really straight logic - you want get paid - you need to do what casino ask.
So,please,tell us casino, and how much you win. Then we can think forward.

Casinos asking for photo id to verify a customer's identity is common, and many that are regulated in proper jurisdictions are obligated to do so by the laws there. However I have never given a casino my passport and I suggest that you do not do that either. Surely a drivers license would be acceptable? That is what I always use.

As belaff said, which casino is it? if you don't feel comfortable talking about it publicly, feel free to send me a private message (click my picture and the link is in the menu) and I'll try to help you out.

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