Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players


Thank you for contacting Bodog Customer Service.

Upon reviewing your account, we see your $5000 payout request was processed on June 7, 2007 via Check By Courier. Please note
with Check By Courier, it takes approximately 20 business days to arrive. We have learned that due to the U.S. anti-gaming
legislation, our third party processor is restricted in terms of the number of checks that they can process per day.
Therefore, they are currently experiencing delays in sending checks to our clients. Please note that these delays have
affected a large number of our clients.

While we are doing everything we can, these payouts are being sent out by the processor in a more gradual fashion than we’re
used to. You will be receiving your payout but at this moment we cannot project when with any degree of accuracy. Once we are
on top of our current backlog, we expect to be back to the speedy payout system that has earned our company one of the best
reputations in this industry.

Should you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,
Customer Service

Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players

This "processor" crap really bugs me. I don't need a processor to write a freakin check out of my bank account. As I've said before the US Justice Dept and the banks have said it will be impossible to enforce the UIGEA when it comes to payouts via check. These processors are full of it and so are the sites. Why does PokerStars not have any processor issues?? I'd love the answer to that question.

Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players

I just requested another payout and it got processed in 30 mins. lol Then they charged me the $20 for making more than one withdrawal a month. What a joke!! $20 to wait 4 to 6 weeks for my money. I'm pulling it all out next month, so I don't have to pay $20 and playing only on Stars.

Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players

I had requested two payouts of $2000 (June 4th), and $1889 (June 19th) both by courier. Here is the email I received (after I sent with voicing my concerns)

Thank you for contacting Bodog Customer Service.

As stated in our previous correspondence, we are not able to give you an estimated time frame when you can expect to receive
your payout requests. We have estimated that a withdrawal processed through the courier method will take an average of 20
business days; however, that is not guaranteed time frame.

Please understand that the estimated time frame a client can expect to receive their payout is dependent on the amount of
pending withdrawals in our system at the time. If we receive a rapid influx in payout request, the estimated time frame may
fluctuate.

In addition, due to the fact that we are processing numerous payout requests through the courier method, we will not
necessarily receive all the tracking numbers for each individual withdrawal. In most cases, clients would receive their
withdrawals way before we were able to supply them with a tracking number.

We can assure you that all of our clients are guaranteed to be paid; however, we are not able to predict with a degree of
accuracy when you payout request will arrive.


Should you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,
Customer Service

I understand the frustration, but you aren't helping the problem. As stated in posts above, only so many checks can be processed per day. If you and others feel you have to withdrawl weekly, that's four times a month, creating the backlog, and pushing payouts back for everyone.

If everyone cashed out less frequently (but for larger amounts), perhaps everyone would be receiving their payments faster. This is why they're implementing the fee, not to profit off it, but to be able to provide faster service to everyone else.

And, Bodog, unlike FT has stated for awhile it was going to take a month (20 business days) to receive a check. You stated you got approved June 18th, nine business days ago and are screaming bloody murder because your money hasn't arrived yet.

It will come. Throwing a temper tantrum and creating a panic among other customers won't help things.

And, I would not fault you if you left for Stars due to their faster payments. That is a legitimate reason, and I too wish bodog were faster. I'm just saying that they have largely been upfront, and no one has not gotten paid yet.

Main differences between bodog and FT are that bodog answers the phones, give answers to the best of their knowledge, or if they don't know, say as much. They also don't deny when attempting to cash out that it likely will take a month.

The ideal poker site would have overlays and fishiness like bodog, traffic like Stars, and the customer service of the two combined.

I agree with you about Bodog's great customer service, but they were not up front about the cause of check delays. I could only get the truth after contacting Calvin. I'll admit I was spoiled on getting 3k a week free via WU. My anxiety is not stemming from my 6/18 payout. I made a check request 2/2, after 30 days of nothing, I received an email stating they had processor turnover and were going to EFT my payout to my checking account thru a new processor. I immediately contacted Bodog and just got a WU instead. My anxiety stems from this and just reading in many forums major issues with getting a check from Bodog. The bottom line is I love Bodog, but I really feel though they can do more to pay faster and are not. They make the majority of their money on sports and casino bets and don't payout much there. Poker and poker players are different. Payouts are our paychecks! Like I've said before, they can find processors to take my money fast, they should be able to do the same to pay me MY money. BTW, Bodog told me, its not the number of checks a day, its a set dollar amount a day,(supposively) that their processor will release. So actually, a big one time request is what slows the process more, that should not matter, I should be able to get a payout for whatever and whenever I want. If Pokerstars can do it, why can't Bodog?? I am doing is asking Bodog to step up to the plate. It's my f'n money anyway!! These forum's allow me to vent my frustrations and do effect change, because of this Bodog has changed their vague responses of "it's coming someday" to finally telling us about the processor issues, which they were never up front about. I am the customer! Not vice versa.

Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players

I just emailed Bodog to inquire about the discontinuation of the money transfers they used to do, as well as the possibility of other payout options, specifically EPassporte. Here is the text of the email they sent me.

Thank you for contacting Bodog Poker Customer Service.

Due to restrictions in the US at this time money transfer is no
longer an option for deposits or payouts.
We will keep everyone up to date if this changes and if we are able
to offer this option again in the
future.

We are currently in the process of looking for new deposit and payout
options and with the football season
just around the corner, you can expect some new options for Bodog
members very soon. At this time we do
not know whether Epassporte will be one of those options so please
keep checking with us in the near
future.

Thank you again for writing. If you require any further assistance,
please do not hesitate to contact us.


Regards,


Poker Customer Service


It's a shame that after all these months since Neteller went down, Bodog still doesn't have a new processor to keep people from waiting a month to get a check in the mail.

Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players

Folks, the problem is and will be that there is a computer the U.S. goverment has access to since 9/11 that tracks all financial movements worldwide. Even though checks are less traceable, (but not non-traceable), if the processors do more volume it is more likely the government will be able to see X money moving from the gaming sites to the payment processors, and then Y money going into people's accounts. They want to get lost in ground clutter, and so are limiting the number of payments they will process. As the federal government would surely consider what they are doing a federal crime, I think this is unavoidable until the political situation changes.

I called them and realized that the email said 20 BUSINESS days and not 20 days as I had some how stupidily misread it... anyhow they told me that it probably get it in another week and half (so this is inline with what other people have been talking about in the thread so it might be accurate) ...

Re: Official Bodog payout thread for US players

Let me edit what I just posted...I emailed Bodog and they told me that the check I have the tracking number for is my May 19th cashout, as they upgraded me to Courier method for free since it was taking so long, or something like that. So I should have my May 19th cashout today, still waiting on June 17th.
