Of those roughly 50 checks, only 2 bounced and they sent me a new check that eventually cleared.
Just my two cents.
Going to have to agree with this completely....started playing poker on bodog in 2002 during college classes. Have had probably a few less payouts than him....maybe 25 in total ranging from a few hundred to 3000 and only one just recently had an issue. They emailed me and said the check wasnt good and they were sending another one. They did and it cleared just fine.
I think the thing you have to remember for US players and bettors is that this isnt totally legal from a deposit standpoint and so getting our winnings back to us is not always easy. They have to skirt around laws and regulations and keep setting up fake companies and bank accounts to do so. Just stay calm and wait for your money. If a check bounces just work through customer service. Worrying is like a rocking chair it gives you something to do but doesnt get you anywhere.
