Seriously? They tilt me so bad. When I signed up with Bodog I initially deposited via MyPayLinQ, because they didn't offer direct bank to me for some reason. So they *required* me to use MyPayLinQ for my withdrawal. Withdrew $200 on Nov 14th, tried to request a check anyway but they shot me down and sent it through MyPayLinQ. Which btw is the ghetto of online payment processors, and their fees are stupid. The cheapest way for me to get it was a money order for $5, which I'm a little leery of but wtf. I'm used to prompt cashouts, and when a week or so went by with no status update, I chatted them up and they told me rather brusquely that they wait 15 days before processing withdrawals. Then on Dec 5th they tell me oops, they need more paperwork, but they will waive the $5 fee for my inconvenience. Finally they tell me they mailed it yesterday (12/9). So it will have taken a month to get it (assuming they're not lying about mailing it) and I hope it's not a rubber M.O., lol.
Not impressed. To top it off, when I deposited at Bodog I setup both MyPayLinQ and eWalletXpress. I thought MyPayLinQ looked shady so I tried eWX first. I dropped $50 on them, but it took a couple of days for the micro-transaction they use for verification to hit my bank, so I couldn't access the funds. I was anxious so I went with MyPayLinQ instead. Totally forgot about the $50 on eWX until the other day. Now they're in trouble with the DOJ who seized all their funds, lol. I chatted them up today and they're still acting like they're having "technical difficulties" but I will receive my funds "soon." LOL, I didn't even bother mentioning that I was well aware of what their "technical difficulties" were.
If Bodog won't let me do EFT's like Stars & FT, I think I'll just donk off the rest of my funds there and give up on them. Pity, because the games are *really* soft. But if the legislation passes and the US licenses online rooms post-blackout, I don't think there's any way in hell Bodog will be allowed back in given their history with the US authorities, so there's probably no point in running up a BR there. No player transfers makes it too damn hard to move money.
