    Agreed.The gambling commission is doing some good work now,and will force William Hill to put a reasonable time limit on their investigations.

    First and foremost I too have many unpleasant occasions with William Hill.
    1. About a year or two back they would always calculate my current balance wrongly after a few games. I have to check back on the main website to know my exact balance.
    2. They would sometimes deny me from some big winnings, due to so call "connection problems" after they have accepted my bets and I saw that I have won the bet.
    3. When I placed big bets (500 pounds), they would sometimes suddenly cut out connections and I would always find that I have lost the money after I reconnected. It does not happen of the rest of the bets just the big ones.
    4. I managed to withdraw around 2k pounds but was swiftly denied a second withdrawal in the same week and they ask me for identity verification. It’s not like I have not verified before.
    5. They reject online bill statements from established listed companies and insist on paper versions.
    6. They suspended my withdrawal but still allowed me to place bets and deposits, when they were suspicious of my "identity" to my bemusement.
    7. After I sent a new papered address bill as prove they say I could go ahead with withdrawal. But on the next withdrawal they did not bank in on their so called 1 working day policy. I connected to their life chat and they say my account has some minor restrictions???
    8. I ask them what the restrictions were so I could solve it but they claim that it was rectified. And to my amazement, the next time I reload my Moneybookers account which took less than a minute it was deposited in.
    9. They are simply playing games to unsettle you the player. When you get frustrated you sometimes make unreasonable bets which I have done before.

    I find it hard to believe that their investigation (assuming there ever was one) can still be going on after this length of time - and if they haven't found anything by now, it strikes me that they are not going to. For now I would follow Quincunx's advice and see whether you make any headway with them. If you don't, then it may be time for you to go on the offensive and either contact the press about this or, as a last resort, look into the possibility of starting proceedings against them via the UK small claims court for non-payment of debt. If you decide to take the small claims route, I would write to them first at their head office in Wood Green and tell them that you are giving them 28 days to allow you to access and withdraw your funds or else you will begin proceedings against them. Obviously it's your money and your call and I'm not a lawyer, but I definitely think you should consider this option if their stonewalling continues and all other alternatives appear to have failed.

    I suggest that you point out to them that as a matter of principal,matters such as investigations have to be handled within a reasonable period of time.Point out to them that they have already deprived you of your funds far longer than is reasonable,as their investigation has taken far longer than is reasonable.Ask them how they would feel if it was their money,and whether they intend to pay you interest on it.Ask them how they would feel if a story appeared in the press 'William Hill investigation still not completed after two years. Customer still waiting for payment !'

    HOW CAN YOUR SO CALLED INVESTIGATION TAKE 18 YES 18 MONTHS.I HAVE BEEN
    DEPRIVED OF ACCESS TO MY OWN MONEY.I CAN NOT EVEN CHECK MY ACCOUNT TO SEE
    WHETHER MY MONEY IS STILL THERE.
    JUST TELL ME WHETHER YOUR COMPANY INTENDS TO STEAL MY FUNDS. I HAVE KEPT
    EVERY EMAIL SENT AND RECIVED ON THIS MATTER.I FIND YOUR ATTITUDE ON THIS
    MATTER DISGUSTING.
    ALL I EVER GET IS THIS STILL GOING ON. WELL HOW LONG WOULD YOU THINK IT
    SHOULD TAKE..DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE RESOLVED IN THE NEXT 18 MONTHS.
    PETER

    Could'nt agree more martin, they currently make up they're own rules to suit themselves. They have all outcomes covered and know it. There needs to be so much more regulation in the online gambling industry but it does'nt look like coming any time soon. Even the biggest bookies look very reputable from the outside but you can quickly find out just how scheming, cunning, crafty, calculating, devious, designing, conniving, wily, sly, tricky, artful, guileful, slippery, slick, etc; they can be once things don't go according to their plan, i.e you lose consistently.

    I had account with hills..won several thousand in a few weeks...indtantly my bets were restricted to tiny ammounts...
    They are all conmen...to be honest you will never win...its the law of the game..the industry needs investigating.

    Yes, I agree as well. I think there's a decent chance one of the tabloids would be interested. The longer this drags on, the more it seems to me that William Hill are 'playing for time' and simply hoping that you will eventually give up and go away - keep at them!

    Totally agree / seconded.
    I would advise you to do that.
    It doesn't cost a penny and you might even get a compensation on top of everything.
