that's exactly the reason why I would never play at casinos that stall and hold money hostage for more than 48 hours. They know most people will gamble away their winnings. Casinos like Coolcat, slots jungle and sister sites all do the same thing. The difference is that slots jungle will throw $500 a week to you, but most people don't have the patience to wait almost a year to get paid.
When goldvip club did this and I complained, they returned my money and kept the winnings. It was something close to 8K in winnings. They are related to winpalace owners (or same management), so that is the strategy. It works and they'll continue doing it.
Sorry to hear you gave in, but I don't blame you as it takes tremendous willpower to wait a year to get paid.
Why don't you try Bovada...they take up to 15 business days, but the money comes out of the pending within 24 hours. They'll also send 3K with each payment.
