Hello dear CasinoGuru team,
I have the following problem with Stakers Casino. In the past few weeks, I have again paid into the casino in question, played and sometimes had it withdrawn. Which also worked without problems. Now I won a little over € 2000 a week ago and wanted to withdraw € 2000.
I then received an email from Stakers Support asking them to determine my source of wealth (SoW) and to send the necessary documents. Meanwhile, my account was "frozen". No problem, I understand the measures, so I sent them my bank statements of the past 3 months and proof of income.
Since I am currently looking for a job, these were the following documents:
- Benefits claim labor market service AMS (unemployment benefit)
- 3 bank statements (on which the benefits from the AMS of the last 3 months can be seen)
Two days ago I received an email that I still have a PDF copy of my bank statement for January as well as documents that your source of income should send for December-January. Since I have been receiving so-called emergency help from the labor market service instead of unemployment benefit since 23.12.2019, I naturally sent this proof. This also shows that I am entitled to emergency aid until 20.12.2020 if I cannot find any work in time.
(Brief explanation of emergency assistance: If you have been unemployed in Austria for longer than 6 months, you will automatically receive emergency assistance instead of unemployment benefit from the 7th month. For me, instead of € 33.85 daily unemployment benefit (approx. € 1050 per month) € 31.14 daily emergency aid (approx. € 965 per month), which is not even € 90 less than before.
In response, I received the following from Stakers Support:
Dear Mr. Peterka,
We hope you're well.
We regret to inform you that we cannot continue with your SoW verification because emergency aid cannot be considered as the source of income.
We would like to inform you that your Stakers account has been closed.
If you have further questions or need help, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
Since then, I have no longer been able to access my account and there is no response from support when I asked for a more detailed explanation of why it cannot be regarded as a source of income.
Although it is "only" 2000 € I hope you can help me with this if you have contact with the Stakers Casino.
Unfortunately I could not find out what you calculated for your help, but as long as it does not cost more than 2000 € and I at least get out with +/- 0 € I would be happy if you could at least provide me with clarification and possibly the casino at a case similar to mine accepts the documents and saves another player something like that.
Thank you in advance for your time and I hope we hear from each other.
