I requested a withdrawal almost 2 weeks ago for $3000. normally i get the wire in 2 days. we are going on 2 weeks and i have not received anything yet. spoke with a lady and she says they are having to take extra precautions because someone had 160k wired to them and had their acct frozen my the us gov. just wondering if anyone else is having to wait for a wire.

Yes I am going on 11 business days for a 5000 dollar wire from Bookmaker. They originally told me that it could take 7 to 15 days. So I havent hit the panic button yet, but definitely feeling a bit uneasy. Fortunately I still have money in my bookmaker account, because I definitely won't be reupping until I recieve my check. Keep me posted as I will do the same. My understanding is that these wire transfers from country to country can be a bit of a hassle, definitely not like our wire within the US. So I'm keeping faith, i have never had any problems in the past with bookmaker. The only problems I have ever had with them is their professionalism tends to leave alot to be desired.

I just got my wire about 2 weeks (10 business days) with less $60, but when I contacted them they credited to my betting account.  As I knowledge that withdraw by WU and debit card would be easier and faster.  I had WU one this morning around 10AM EST and about 3PM EST I got control number.  I think you guys are safe just a matter of time

How much was your wire to wire transfer for?

I have a theory that pending on how much playboys payout was for might shed some light on the matter. So far we have 3000 payout paid in 10 days. 5000 going on 14 and counting and 7000 going on 3 weeks. Bookmaker has a limit of one request per week. Whereas other books have one within a 48 hour notice from my understanding. So why couldn't bookmaker offer that? Also your one request if not done through bankwire can't exceed 2500. So my guess would be bookmaker isn't interested in paying out more than 2500 per customer in any given week. For example when and if I ever get my wire, you think I'll ever be doing a bank wire again? NO. So that means I will have to resort to requesting 2500 by westernunion, which means if I have 10 large in my account, I have to leave 7500 in my bookmaker account which plays right into what they want. although bookmaker may be solid in paying, I believe they are very unethical about time of payment. There is absolutely no reason wire one should recieve a bankwire in 8 days while another is going on 3 weeks. I mean 3 weeks kind of defeats the purpose of a bankwire in my opinion. But the guy who requested 70 grand, by the time he gets his wire, it falls into him recieving 2500 per week, which had he known that from jump, I'm sure thats the route he would have gone, because at least he'd already have 5000 of his 7000. My request is 5000 and if it comes in within the next couple of days, then I also fall into 2500 per week. So morale of the story is Bookmaker pays, but has found a very convenient way of keeping ahold of our money for as long as they can. Just a thought.

I requested a Withdrawl Via Bank Wire through Bookmaker on Monday, Sept. 26th for 5 figures. I still have NOT received it as of Friday, Oct.7th. When I call, they say not to worry, it'll be there. 12 days and waiting..

15 days and waiting, they told me to call them tommorrow if my money hasn't arrived. Also just made a request of a 3000 dollar check, so I will also keep you posted as to how long that process takes. Did a 1500 transfer from bookmaker to to 5dimes and it took all of 30 minutes. Thats the second transfer I have done with them and both were done immediatley. So that was a bit refreshing. I guess. Will keep posted. This is all such a hassle, because even with the check, i assume Im gonna have to wait X amount of days to be cleared. Bet jamaica use to have my check on my doorstep literally the next day. Bookmaker tells me it should be 7-10 biz days, but generally takes only 3-5. So we'll see how that goes.

Received my wire transfer for 5 figures today. The problem was they shorted me $500 on it but said they will MoneyGram it free of charge.

Spoke with bookmaker today, they said a handful of bankwires were bounced back and they tried calling me prior to inform me, but they don't like to leave that kind of info over the phone, I was waiting for a 5000 bank wire and just put in a 3000 check yesterday. The operations Manager returned my call today after it had been 15 days and gave me the info and he said they will immediately get a check out to me for 3000 and in 72 hours get another check out to me for another 3000 and send me 2000 via western union free of charge tommorrow just to make sure they get some cash in my hand ASAP. Was quite pleased with him taking care of the issue, says the checks should be to me by tuesday and then the second one hopefully friday. Kinda sucks, but as long as I get my money its all good. Which  he also said check will be the best way to go. I don't understand the issues with wire money. I completely think its something they may be possibly trying to do away with, because then it puts a cap to how much any of us can withdraw in any given week. 3000 every 7 days. So if you build your account to 20,000, you're forced to leave 17,000 grand in and you know the HOUSE philosphy is keep his money with us as long as you can and he will give it back. Does anyone have any explanation why these offshores can only send out 3000 max checks? I remember it used to be 5000. I find it hard to believe that you can send me a 3000 dollar check, but cant send me a 5000 dollar check. Well I will kepp everyone posted.

True to form, they sent me my western union info today for 2000 and sent an email saying 3000 is on its way via courier.

The reason why I think, is because of the Patriot Act we have in this country. Anything over that....brings up a red flag. That's my personal opinion.
