Inetbet.com won't pay $14,000

14 replies • Last post

I won $14,000 at INETBET.COM , I won the random jackpot at Paydirt and was never paid my winnings.

Right after they denied my winnings they went to change the terms and conditioned and added my country to the restricted country list.

They offered to pay $2000 in order to resolve the issue thru Casinomeister - of course I refused this humiliating offer

When I registered and played on October 1st 2022 Switzerland was not in the list of banned countries (now it is listed as a banned country in the faq section)

The casino admitted they added the terms right after I won and gave this excuse for not paying. I believe it is a pure example of retroactive enforcing of a new term and condition.

Hi Aharon,

Upon review of your account it has come to our attention that you are residing in a country where it is not permitted by law for us to accept your wagers.

While we make every effort to comply with regulations, it is ultimately your responsibility to determine the legality of any activity prior to participating.

As such we have refunded your full deposit amount via the method you used to make your purchases and have permanently closed your account.

Kind Regards

I had my documents approved there before I won the big amount. The documents included a fax back form with my name and full address, photo holding the form and my ID and bill.

If you check now the FAQ - 'can I play at inetbet ?' my country is mentioned there as not allowed

If you go to google cached from 13 of October you will see Switzerland is not there in the list

It is obvious their claim is nonsense because they accept and pay USA players and their licensed is in Curacao

Man I am sorry to hear your story. That is not good at all.

They are an effectively unlicensed casino running out of Curacao and accepting players from many countries where it is questionable whether gambling online is legal. The USA example is not the best though because legality in the USA varies between states: some have legalised and regulated casinos, some make it illegal, and other have no law one way or the other.

But take Australia for example. It is very well known these days that it is against the law for an unlicensed online casino to accept Australian players (i.e. all of them because Australia does not issue casino licenses). Yet iNetBet does not have Australia in its list of excluded countries and presumably allows play from there. I would have thought that if it was all a big mistake that they would have taken great care to update their list of excluded countries to ensure it was complete and accurate.

I can see they still do not accept players from Switzerland today. The right solution would have been for them to pay the win then close your account, fix their exclusions list, and stop accepting players from Switzerland.

ouch...that hurts!
that is a lot of money that you don't get paid out. i guess you are relatively new to the world of online casinos otherwise you wouldn't have deposited your money at one of these shady RTG casinos...and there are alternatives for swiss players. anyway it is what it is. i also had to pay a lot of tuition at the beginning and learn it the hard way on what to consider when choosing a casino.

It really seems there's been an uptick in this kind of post lately. Goes to show how important it is to play at reliable sites. I'm happy to see you have a positive attitude regarding the situation. Switzerland has regulated gaming... hopefully you find a good place to play there.

So far only 1 big site blacklisting them which is Casino Guru and a smaller one Gambling Grumbles. The big sites Casinomeister and LCB.ORG latestcasinobonuses.org letting the casino go away and avoid paying me without blacklisting.
This is too bad for me and the industry. This is a classic fraudulent non pay .

Other casinos watching the thread see it is possible to avoid paying like that and copy the behavior.

Inetbet and sisters casinos like Primaplay will continue to stiff players knowing they can still be promoted at Casinomeister and LCB without any problem.

I believe they must be blacklisted at LCB and any site that respect himself and his players

So I have an update. We have been conducting our own enquiries into this one to double check the facts of the case. It all seems to check out with what utanfu2 is saying so unfortunately for Inetbet I see no other option than the blacklist.

If they want to pick and choose which countries they are willing to accept play from they need to do it at registration and/or login time, not after the player has won and wants to withdraw. I don't buy the "illegality" excuse used as they continue to accept play from a bunch of other countries where legality is questionable at best. Far more likely is that they have hardly any players from Switzerland so they weren't going to lose much in terms of other players by taking this decision. It would be interesting to know if there are any other Swiss players with old accounts there that are still able to log in and play. Anyway I can't see how you can trust them not to do this again if you reside in another country where it may be convenient to pull the same excuse.

Inetbet blacklisted
Inetbet Euro blacklisted

Finally I also note that their European focused sister site, Inetbet Euro, continues to accept play from Switzerland despite having the same sort of worthless Curacao "license". But hang on, they seem to think that is illegal... hmmm.

Thank you. I think it is the right decision. They have more casinos - sister casino like Primaplay , Kudos casino and mroe I need to dig

These are exactly same management same team casinos that would use the same tricks once they think it is an oppurtinity to do so.

That is actualy shocking that you got a payout of over 14,000 and can't claim the win. Nothing worse. I had a similar sitation were over 10,000Eur was won and was all removed , another rogue site .

Thats actually ridiculous that they only offered a settlement of 2 thousand especially since you hit a jackpot, they are well capable of giving you your prize, hope it works out for you

Good luck to you, I really hope they come to their senses, but I just have a feeling you're gonna be hosed out of that money.
