Hi,

There's a lot of buzz about the situation in Russia regarding online gambling... actually its been going on for some time now, but lately there's a talk about blocking the payments using banks and online payment processors....

what's your call about this situation?

Since 2009 most real casinos are closed in Russia.

Only at exclave of Kaliningrad, the city of Azov to the south, the Siberian Altai region and the Vladivostok region near the border with North Korea and Japan the Russian people have a chance to play, thousands of kilometers away from Moscow.

Putin says, gambling addiction is worse than alcoholism in Russia.

O.k.?!

Hard to believe. 

Anyway, I am sure, the flawless democrat will find a way to stop also online gambling. He takes care of his subjects.

It's funny how Putin likes to say things with no sense and think that everyone will buy this crap :P

Russia is the worst country for online casinos operators, I'm also sure it'll be stopped one way or another...

What do you mean it's the worst country? Like it's hard to get licensing or like they shouldn't be trusted?

Hmm I don't have an idea but it will be too bad for those who are fond of playing at casinos offline. If they will do online casino games, people in Russia can use a VPN program before logging in to play so that their IP address could be changed into a different one. Like an IP address in the US. That way, the system will recognize the user as someone from the US... 

I am not sure if this will work but I am using a VPN program in watching TV series because some sites don't allow other countries to view their shows.

This is more about Russian politic

They really get used to control everybody and everything in their country and worsted of this is just the one reason to do this staff - is control all money which rolling in country. The top of Russian politic's stay on their position to still everything what they see)

I was there one year ago, it was a good experience to understand what is going on there.

I think it's will be going worse and worse, and they'll be blocked all platforms which stay there in legal way. Promise me they have legal gambling for this moment, but this is about corruption)

So in Russian will remain just illegal platforms in few years and of course it'll be distrustful offer)

Russia regularly bans all sorts of things but how much they enforce those bans is another matter altogether.

    • Excess of anything is very bad. So everyone should do according to the limit. Coffee helps to refresh body and mind at the same time. 
    • Hello Mattr33,  Thank you for reporting this issue. We're sorry to hear about your experience and we've forwarded your post to the casino.  We'll update you the moment we have an answer. Thank you for your patience. OCR Moderator 
    • I signed up with Tangiers Casino under the user name Mattr33 I made a deposit and didn’t accept any bonus offers. I supplied all documents requested by them. I ended up winning a reasonable amount and requested a withdrawal they sat my withdrawal in pending and then after 5 days reversed it back into my account without even contacting me. I contacted them and they told me I didn’t supply my documents so I sent them again and went on live chat and was told they had been received and approved. They did the same thing 2 more times reversed my withdrawal request without notifying me. I contacted them again and they asked for an additional document to do with my credit card I’ve never had to do that before but I went ahead and did it. I waited and still I didn’t receive any money so I contacted them again and now they are saying I was randomly selected by management to have my documents reviewed and the games I played to make sure there are no discrepancies and this could take up to 10 business days which will be next Thursday and then they will review my withdrawal request which will take another 5 days. I won this money on the 30th of March and at the moment the earliest I will see any money which I’m starting to doubt will happen will be the first week of May. How is it fair that when a player makes a deposit the Casino receives the money instantly but when a player wins they have to wait over a month to receive anything and then because of their weekly limit restrictions it is going to take a number of weeks before I receive my total winnings.  I have had no contact from the Casino unless I contact them and every email I have sent has come back with Hello at the top of the page without including my name. So I’m assuming these are copy and paste responds and that no one is even bothering to read my emails and take any action. I have played at a number of online Casinos and have never been treated so poorly.  They are clearly taking advantage of their situation and hiding behind a keypad and are hoping that I get that frustrated I play back what I have won. As a player I choose to play and understand that if I lose I lose but when I win I expect a Casino to pay me, I seriously question their morals, values and honesty this is so disgraceful and it has now got me questioning the whole online gaming experience if one can do this what’s stopping others from doing it. Who monitors them and hold them accountable if they are doing the wrong thing which Tangiers Casino is currently doing? We are trusting them to do the right thing but I’m starting to question the trust I have put in them. Fortunately there are good Casinos who value players and are professional in their approach but Tangiers are not one of those. I have asked numerous times for someone to do the right thing and call me and explain what is going on they have not attempted to do so. All I want is what I won fair and square my money not fake manufactured excuses.  
    • A classic ! I played them all 1,2,3 and even world of war craft later on
