Lock Withdrawal & Manual Flushing FAQs
What is a pending period?
A pending period is the time in which your funds/winnings sit in your online casino before they process the withdrawal or cashout request. Some online casinos have pending periods where they will wait between 24 and 48 hours before a withdrawal request is processed. Once the pending period is up, your withdrawal will be processed with the online casino’s payment teams (normally automatically). Online casinos such as 32Red Casino allow customers to set their own pending period – down to 4 hours.
What is a reverse withdrawal?
A reverse withdrawal allows the player to cancel their withdrawal request – if a player won £500 for example and reverses it, the player will have the £500 back in their online casino account to play with again. Many players use this facility and never get to cashout their winnings – it’s always best to withdraw your winnings so you have something to show for your lucky win/streak.
What is manual flushing?
Manual flushing is a facility offered by online casinos to allow players to flush their withdrawal request. Manually flushing your account moves your winnings from the pending period meaning you can perform a reverse withdrawal – it guarantees your withdrawal request will be processed and ensures you will receive your winnings.
What does lock withdrawal mean?
The lock withdrawal feature is a new facility offered by some online casinos which allows players to protect their withdrawal requests. This means that a cashout from the relevant online casino will be processed and will stop the player from reversing the withdrawal and not receive their winnings.
Which casinos allow manual flushing?
There are a few manual flushing casinos like Grosvenor Casino, Mr Green Casino, Videoslots Casino and Novibet Casino – they all allow their customers to manually flush their accounts. You will simply need to contact their customer support teams and request it – they will then ensure your withdrawal request is processed immediately.
