Back Vavada Casino Tested- Were There Any Obstacles During Skrill Withdrawal Processing?

How Complicated is to Withdraw Using Skrill at Vavada Casino?

With more than 150 online casinos and bingo rooms investigated under the “From the Players for the Players” project, our team has helped players understand different practices in casinos all over the world. As new brands are added to our directory on a daily basis, it is evident that our ambitious project will continue to bloom. 

For this investigation, we’ve selected Curacao-licensed non-US friendly Vavada Casino, and assigned one of our most active testers to use Skrill to fund the account and later on attempt to cash out. As with any other test reports, the special focus is on deposit and withdrawal procedures using versatile payment options. 

Before we guide you through the entire process, take a quick look at the highlighting moments of our tester’s journey:

  • Tester of the day: Punakontti 
  • Registration completed on October 7, 2022 
  • Deposit of EUR 185 EUR via Skrill made on October 7, 2022 
  • KYC was not completed on this occasion 
  • Withdrawal of EUR 50 via Skrill submitted on October 7, 2022 and rejected, so the new request was made two days later, on October 9, 2022 
  • Withdrawal of EUR 50 via Skrill received on October 9, 2022 

Although two days to process a Skrill transaction is not uncommon in online casinos, the request can often be processed on the same day, which wasn’t the case with our tester. As far as our tester noted, there was an issue with the Skrill e-mail address, which probably caused the delay. How was the situation resolved? 

To find out, stay tuned and take a closer look at our comprehensive Vavada Casino test report! 

Vavada Casino Overview  

Operated by Alacomia Ltd., Vavada Casino accommodates a wide spectrum of slots, table, and live games. Some of the studios the operator is aligned with include the likes of Peter & Sons, True Lab, Endorphina, Hacksaw Gaming, BGaming, and many more. 

Making sure players are given lots of opportunities to collect valuable rewards, Vavada Casino equipped its platform with a solid assortment of tournaments. Let’s not forget to mention Loyalty Scheme with 6 levels of advancement and lots of surprises that come along. 

Registration  

On October 7, 2022, the tester joined Vavada Casino. Before initiating the process, he quickly inspected the Terms. To become a member, he was required to complete a form and verify both his phone number and e-mail. 

The tester also received a welcome mail from the casino, which marked the first phase successful. Having finalized these two quick and simple steps, he could proceed to the next stage- replenishing the account. 

Deposit 

On the very same day, the tested funded the account with EUR 185 via Skrill. As soon as he typed in the desired amount of money, he was transferred to Skrill to confirm his transaction via code. 

Within less than a minute, the transaction was completed and visible on the tester’s balance and in the cashier. 

An important detail to note is that this operator allows a minimum deposit of as low as EUR 1. The available methods include versatile cards and e-wallets. Players can fund the account using a variety of payment options, among which are cards, e-wallets, crypto, and bank transfers. 

Gameplay 

 As soon as the deposit amount became visible on his account, the tester decided to take a closer look at Vavada Casino’s portfolio. 

His first choice was NFT Megaways, followed by Risqué Megaways and Bison Rising Megaways. 

Next in line were Beastwood by Quickspin, Dio Killing the Dragon and Leprechaun Goes Wild. After these adventures, the tester launched Wild Blood II, Legacy of Dead, The Border, and Bonanza. 

Withdrawal  

On October 7, 2022, the tester made a request to withdraw EUR 50 via Skrill, the same method he opted for when replenishing the account. 

As soon as he submitted the request, he checked the cashier, where it was indicated that the transaction was in pending status. 

When accessing his casino account two days later, on October 9, the tester noticed that his transaction was declined. To find out the reason, the tester got in touch with the support department via chat. The agent responded nine minutes after the tester posted his question. 

Based on what the support agent said, the tester was supposed to return the payment to the same method he used to deposit, which was Skrill. That’s precisely what the tester already did, explaining that the system automatically selects the same address. Also, that’s what the Terms say as well. 

“9.12.2. Funds can only be withdrawn through the same method that was used to deposit them into your account on the Website.” 

As the first attempt was declined, he submitted another request. 

However, it turned out that the tester has two e-mail addresses connected with his Skrill account, so he needed to use the same one he did when depositing. He tried canceling the request, but without success. 

The second attempt was declined as well, so he made another one, this time typing in the address the live chat agent suggested to him. It seems that the third time was the charm as his new attempt to make a withdrawal request was a successful one. 

The money arrived on his balance on the very same day, October 9, marking the end of our tester’s journey. Apparently, some small bug appeared, but the situation was quickly and successfully fixed with the help of support agent.  

According to the cashier, the minimum to withdraw is EUR 15. The available methods are similar to those players can use to fund the account. Cashout limits depend on a customer’s loyalty status, ranging from EUR 10,000 to EUR 100,000. Payouts in cryptocurrencies are limited to US$1,000,000 per month. 

Interestingly: 

“9.12.7. The established limits on payments are valid on weekdays. On weekends or holidays, a US$2,000 per day limit applies. If the winnings payout exceeds US$10,000, the Company reserves the right to divide the payout into monthly installments, starting at US$10,000. The company does not pay interest on its existing obligations. These terms and conditions do not apply to jackpot winnings offered on the Website.” 

Cashout times should be up to 24 hours, unless some issues delay processing, such was the case with our tester. 

It is noted that: 

“9.8. The Company reserve the right to at any time change any active balance on your account to pay off the amount you owe the Company as a debt, including canceled bets or wagers in accordance with clauses 5.5 (“Duplicate Accounts”), 15 (“Fraud, Abuse, Collusion, and Criminal Activity”), or 21 (“Errors and Omissions”).” 

Also: 

“9.14. The Company may charge a fee in the amount of the expenses incurred by the Company in relation to your withdrawal of money that was not used for games.” 

“9.12.5. The Company may withhold 10% (not less than US$0.50) of the amount withdrawn if the money transferred to the player’s account (total bets) is less than three times the total sum of deposits. The Company withholds 20% of the amount requested for withdrawal if the funds were deposited with a credit card.” 

When it comes to identity verification, our tester wasn’t obliged to verify his identity, but the operator reserves the right to ask for ID verification documents in certain situations. As far as the tester pointed out, KYC procedure is done if the operator suspects fraud has been committed. 

“9.12.4. If the requested amount exceeds one thousand US dollars (or in cases requiring verification), you must complete the identification procedure by sending us a copy or digital photograph of an identity document (a page with a photo), such as a passport, ID card, or a utility bill for verifying your address (except for your mobile phone bill). If you are making a deposit to your account using your credit card, you must send us a copy of both sides of the card.” 

Conclusion 

Is waiting nine minutes for a live chat agent to respond too much? Well, depends on how you look at it. Having in mind that our tester eventually managed to fix the issue with the help of a support representative and successfully withdraw the funds, it seems like it’s not such a big issue. Overall, Vavada Casino performed quite well during the test.
