Lengthy wait-times for new ePassporte customers

7 February 2007

ePassporte, one of the few remaining e-wallets choices for U.S. online gamblers, is experiencing longer-than-usual waits times due to the volume of new customer sign-ups.

New customers can expect to wait more than three weeks for their new accounts to be active.

A Casino City reporter began the sign-up process on Jan. 17 and was told by an ePassporte customer service representative that she/he could expect the money to be posted by the end of this week (Feb. 5-9).

Additionally, the customer service department released this statement on the ePassporte Web site.

"Due to unusually high call and email volumes, you may experience extended hold times when calling us or there may be a delay receiving a response to your email inquiry. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are exerting all efforts so that we may attend to your phone calls and emails as soon as possible. Your calls and emails will be answered in the order they are received. We appreciate your patience and cooperation."

Casino City will update this article once more information becomes available.

Feb. 6: After days of trying to get through to the ePassporte customer line to find out where the money is, reporter calls the business line instead, gets transferred to a customer service representative who tells him to be patient because they've been innundated with requests and are processing them as quickly as they can.

Ryan McLane was a poker reporter for Casino City. Although he has a strong background in reporting, the same can't be said for his poker skills. He has never won a major tournament nor is he a professional player. He applied for this job thinking it was a joke, only to find it out that it's true, people will pay you to write about poker. His favorite word is ridiculous.

After receiving his BA in History from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, he somehow ended up freelance reporting for a couple years before being deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom III with the Massachusetts National Guard. He's back now and is a strong advocate of the phrase "God Bless America."

Currently, Ryan lives in Boston and occasionally makes international treks to cover tournament poker and news. Feature writing is his passion and there is no need to ask for his opinion, he'll probably offer it first - free of charge.
