This just in from Casinomeister:
As many readers know there have been a number of unresolved issues regarding Nedplay at Casinomeister. There are currently at least three unaddressed PABs plus a number of issues on the forums that have received little or no attention from Nedplay in the last month or so.
When these combined issues had come to a crisis point about a month ago we were told that the Nedplay manager was on sick leave for another week or so and that all things would be addressed shortly. A few things moved forward incrementally but most of it remained unresolved and unaddressed.
I’m afraid the grace period asked for and granted on the PABs has come and gone and those issues are now being ignored by Nedplay management and Customer Service. Our attempts to get their attention are, once again, going unanswered. So, with all due respect and best wishes to the ailing party I’m afraid I have no choice but to issue the following:
Warning: Nedplay is slo-paying players with approved withdrawals and largely ignoring both player and third-party attempts to get their attention on the issues. Until there is evidence that these problems have been resolved players are advised to proceed with extreme caution with this casino.
