This is to warn all UK residents to be very aware of how Betin cot d o m have recently, surreptitiously conducted their business with me. Be very very careful.
There is a live link to one of their, I should imagine, no longer advertised bonuses on their sportsbook, this ---->> w w w c o t Betin c o t d o m (forward slash) en (forward slash) ia100free (no spaces required) .
I was emailed it by a friend , without any warning, without any warning notices or any feedback that the bonus is no longer valid, specifically for UK residents.
Should you follow the link it quite obviously takes you a Sportsbook bonus. It publishes Sportsbook terms and conditions and it asks you accept Sportsbook terms and conditions. It even lists the bonus code as IA100FREE , not GAMES100, which you are eventually allocated.
At this stage I should say I was remiss, did not read fully the T&Cs (remembering these are Sportsbook T&Cs) that state that UK residents are not allowed the Sportsbook bonus. BUT, it also says that UK residents do not qualify for the GAMES bonus, so why allow you to continue. Here’s why.......
It allows you to follow through the application, it gives you the bonus, then it even allows you to place sportsbook bets with both your money and the bonus. Why wouldnt I? I was working through a Sportsbook bonus, or so I thought.
What it does not tell you is that Betin c o t d o m have placed you on the GAMES bonus where Sportsbook bets do not work towards the workaround towards withdrawal, furthermore, you have to play £5000 worth of slots to even think of withdrawing.
They will not budge, they will be adamant that you agreed to GAMES T&Cs, I did not.
So, you could get your fingers burned as I admittedly, foolishly did.
I have contacted lots of gambling authorities, including the Curacao commission, fat lot of good that has done. I am currently down £800, the balance I had in there before I realised what had occurred, but I am fortunate that this amount is just a very small percentage of what I’ve made.
I have since enquired if there is a timescale to complete the £5000 of slots workaround, I am told there is not. So I am mugging (no need for anybody to do this if you first heed the warning), I am currently up to £2500 balance, I’ll painstakingly, but stubbornly, keep mugging, until I think I have enough to give the slots a hit. After the shock, I’m now quite enjoying the battle.
Assuming Betin c o t d o m don’t go bust through the cunning they displayed in my instance, please don’t fall into the same trap I did.
