    Months ago I closed my paddy power account. Self exclusion. Then I set up a new one. A few months went by without them noticing and yesterday I won €300 and had €100 on my balance. I can't get into my account and I've been told the €300 I withdrew to the card I may not receive. Anyone else ever been in this situation? I'm down €400 when really I should have it

    by self exclusion do you mean you clicked the gambling aware section and banned yourself?

    if so they probably have you on the small print. it sucks but pp are complete **** when it comes to customer service so dont expect much.

    obviously they cannot or will not allow anyone to put even the slightest dent in their profit margin.

    Couple of questions.

    You closed your account, did you then ask to be excluded and no longer able to bet with them or did you self exclude and then close the account?
    Did they reply back to you and confirm you were self excluded from gambling with them.
    When you opened a new account, did you open up with changed details (email, dob, address) or open it up with the original details?

    Did anyone from PP send a mail/ask about your exclusion?
    Up to the day before you won, were you up or down?
