Woman Denied Winnings Because She Had No ID

Written by: Nikola Zugic on 31/08/2008 02:20

Online bingo has a lot of advantages to it, not least the fact that once you've registered your identity and details are considered verified. Make a deposit using your bank card and those details are also registered so that winnings can be withdrawn back to that very same account. It mat not sound like a big deal but a woman in Ontario has been declined her winnings from a high street bingo club for not immediately verifying her identity.

The woman from Mississauga claims that she won a $5,000 jackpot but was refused the winnings because she was unable to immediately present proof of her identification. The rules of the International Centre Bingo game state that all players must show identification before they can collect their winnings and while the woman is understandably upset and claims she is entitled to the money, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has upheld the hall's decision.

The woman also claims that representatives of the bingo hall had stated that she could have the winnings if ID was presented by 12:30am but despite a friend turning up with the identification two hours prior to this time she was still refused her jackpot winnings.
