The great ‘pending withdrawal’ swindle!

So you decide to play at an online casino. You know the odds are stacked against you, and you take a chance and deposit some of your hard earned money to test your luck. Against all expectations, you win!

It’s a miracle. You’re overjoyed and caught up in the moment…but wait…you suddenly check yourself and decide to withdraw the cash to stop yourself from putting it back in.

the process is simple, you click on your balance, select ‘Withdraw’, and the casino website says ‘Your money is on its way’.

But then you have to wait.

And wait.

And wait some more.

And when you get a little tired of waiting you decide to cancel the withdrawal and play a little bit more.


Well this is an all too familiar situation for players everywhere. It’s know as the ‘pending withdrawal’ or ‘reversal’ and it is well-known by casinos to increase the chances of a player ‘playing back’ their winnings.

What can I do?

Look for an online casino that offers ‘instant payout’ or ‘no reversals’ because these will stop you from ever playing back a win without having to make another deposit (psychologically a big distinction!).

Good luck!
