    Also, is it normal for a book to require a credit card form? I understand requiring a utility bill to prove address but I use BTC so why is BOVADA asking for copies of a credit card to verify your account?

    They didnít ask for a credit card form. They asked for a selfie, ID and utility Bill. Which I provided all of that... still no communication and no resolution. My documents are 100% legit and up to date... there was absolutely nothing wrong with my bets. I canít understand why is there no back and forth normal conversation - itís like a one way street with them. They demand to send them stuff and then nothing happens. You reach out to them - they ask for more stuff or same stuff they already received from you and DO NOTHiNg

    I have to take back my guarantee. I don't know what's going on or why its taking so long either.

    It's very unusual for Bovada to have multiple people hanging on investigations so long like this.

    Thank you for the update. I wish Bovada gave me an update on what to do. I still have not received any answer about my documents and what is the next step to get this resolved. Itís a lot of money for me and I feel hostage in this situation... canít believe this happened

    I'm just curious why you used "Bravado" in your title and did not spell Bovada correctly ? Is there any underlying meaning to this?

    I was expecting a possible battle to get my first withdrawal with Bovada after seeing so many negative Bovada threads however I luckily got my payout without having to submit any documents whatsoever so that surprised me. I even took advantage of their first time deposit bonus. I just received the FedEx Package with Check today.

    Check? Dude that might not clear. Good luck. BTC- get with the program. If you refuse to accept BTC, donít whine about getting an international check and it bouncing or not clearing for 30+ days. Thatís your choice

    Bovada isn't having any complaints about checks not clearing, the complaints are mainly based on approving withdrawals. I have been getting checks for years from reputable sportsbooks without ever having one bounce yet, (knock on wood). Also, I do use bitcoin in many instances however I prefer a check in some cases when they are free payouts so I don't lose any money with the bitcoin conversion process. If I request $3K for example, I know with a check that I will actually receive the full $3K.

    The check is my preference in many cases and I don't mind the wait. I wish Neteller was still available to US. That sure was nice.

    Have you had any checks bounce or do you know anybody who has had some checks bounce from Bovada or from any SBR A rated books ?

    Last time I went the check route (US resident) it took 5 weeks to clear.

    I think some books have one free check payout per month, but the customer must pay the Fed Ex charges. (maybe 20 or 30 bucks for a next day air)

    Not a bad procedure.

    Bovada and BAS, for example, don't have any Fed Ex Charges for their free payout. If you withdrawal, for example $3K , you will get a check for $3K and that $3K is the only money removed from your account balance. There is no other nickel and diming that takes place. Other books may have fees however if you are charged for Fed Ex charges, etc. , it technically is NOT a free payout .

    Bovada and BAS (5 Dimes) checks are just fine, never had a problem with them clearing--typically next day. BAS gives one free check every 30 days, Bovada is 90 days. BAS checks arrive in 2-3 days, and Bovada in 2-3 weeks from my experience.

    I had a check that wouldn't process from 5dimes a year ago. 5dimes actually asked me to ask the bank manager to write a letter asking why they wouldn't process it, I was like WTF. I tried, got the look and they refused but did they did the routing # was wrong. I had to send the check back and lost $90 sending it back via fedex international 2 day shipping.

    It happens occasionally when the payment processor loses or changes their bank account.

    But it's usually just an over-zealous bank teller or branch manager. Often people just go to another branch or use the ATM to deposit and it is accepted.

    If the book is asking the bank manager why, they must think it's not a sending account problem.

    Check or not check I just wish to get my money out of their platform. Still no communication with me and no update on my case. I did use BTC and thought that itís the way to go... little I knew I will get into this hostage situation with them.

    I remember there was a message that was attached and it said to deposit the check right away and to use the ATM. However, the ATM wouldn't process it. I went to two different locations. After the second location is when I went to the teller.

    you cannot give Bovada any +/- decisions either way until a final disposition here....

    I don't think so at this point. There are maybe 3 or 4 or 5 complaints that may have some validity however there could be thousands of happy players that are not complaining. I agree , there should be some answers on these cases though but vast majority of players are being paid extremely quickly so these cases must have some type of suspicious activity that Bovada must not feel comfortable with.

    The question will probably be whether the suspicious activity will actually warrant a non payment. Anotherwards can the suspicious activity be proven as illegal or against Bovada rules so to speak. Hopefully we can find out what the final decisions are on these cases.
