Paddy power withdraw help

    Hi all.

    I rarely gamble but 2 days for the first time I decided to try to place a bet online. I chose paddy power as it was the first big name to come to mind

    I registered an account and deposited 10e. I placed a bet and won, with the winnings I placed another bet and won again.

    At this point I want to withdraw and see that I need to verify my identity. So I uploaded all required documents to their specification.

    2 days later and I'm still waiting to hear of anything. It says on my account I have till the 3rd to be verified. If they fail to do this by then will I loose my account and winnings?

    Thank you all in advance.

    It always amazes me with bookmakers online that u can deposit online without identifacation for as long and as much as you want but at soon as you try and withdraw you have to supply numerous different documents and I’d . There Probaly ignoring you in the hope that u will gamble back the money you have won rather then withdrawing it . I gaurantee if you were looking for live chat over having an issue with deposing rather then withdrawal you would get feedback

    My account got suspended when I won and tried to withdraw iirc a number of years ago. Even after I confirmed my identity. I just wrote it off and never gave them my business again.

    Ok, I eventually got through on the live chat after over an hour of waiting. The person was helpful and was able to track down my submitted documents and verified my account. Im now able to withdraw thank god because its a nice sum in time for Christmas :)

    Am I better off withdrawing to my debit card or directly into my bank?
    I heard you can withdraw with paypal too but im not finding the option anywhere, only to deposit with paypal?

    Take your money and run, and remember that banks are now looking unfavourably on people who have online gambling accounts if they are applying for mortgages or loans.

    Well done on the win OP!

    Next time when it asks what your enquiry iz in relation to tick 'deposit' :p

    Be surprised if the op didn’t encounter the “can’t withdraw more than you deposit” limit which catches out the odd punter or two.

    Have been doing a €1 lucky 31 bet on premier league correct scores for a while now. Best I’ve done is 3/5 giving bout €600. Have always wondered what would happen if I get 5/5 and the big win, which will be depending on selectiobs/odds anything from 100-600k. As far as I can see the limit on this type of bet is £1million according to their site.
    Anyone know is PO would refuse to pay out on this bet if all 5 correct scores come in?? I can’t see how they can not.

    They are a joke, im currently having issues with them, ive got a new and old visa debit card registered with them. I won a large some of money and they wont let me withdraw the full amount on the Live card, they are insiting i withdraw the remainder on the dead card or show them a statment from last PP transaction on the Dead card to remove it.

    Does anybody know if i withdraw on the dead card does it still go to my account, ive withdrawn a test amount of e10 earlier to see what happens.

    They have the right to not honour your bet and there’s nothing you can do it’s in their Terms and conditions.

    But surely they have to pay out the sums displayed as potential win when making the bet?? And if not you can pursue them legally.
    I understand there are bet limits, and that they have a case if they suspect you are funding the bet via syndicates or something.
    But a normal punter who just happens to get lucky that 1 time trying to predict the exact scores, and by some stroke of beautiful luck you get all 5 and the maths result in something like a 500k win, surely they have to pay it?? As I said the limit on this market is £1million. (site doesn’t seem to display € in terms)

    I'm almost 100% sure that if you withdraw to old card it will still hit your bank account

    Hope so, I've sent through a test tenner to find out. The whole situation is bizarre.

    It is to do with anti laundering and also the possibility that someone could find your account left open, (Or hack into it), register a card and withdraw all your money.

    Let me know how you get on.

    My understanding is you cannot pursue a bookmaker through the courts for any bet. It has no legal standing.

    However, there is a dispute resolution procedure that all the bookies sign up to. So I think it's safe to say that if you won 500k, and the max payout for that particular bet is 1m, then you'd get your 500k.

    Most disputes I've read about are around confusion on the docket. Was it singles or accumulator, etc.

    The test €10 came through so that solves that problem. Problem 2 is now to win enough money to clear the negative equity off the old card so I can start withdrawing on my active card again.

    Hows your experiences with Quinnbet?

    I deposited €10 last night and won €80 on the slots. When i went to withdraw it said 'withdraw successful now pending with payments team"


    Usually they ask for ya for ID and proof of address and it takes a few days.

    Are quinnbet usually quick for withdrawals?
