Can't get your Credit Card to work? There are Solutions!
If you have been trying to make deposits using your credit card at Challenge Casino you may have been experiencing problems due to your issuing bank denying you your right to play online. Should you be experiencing problems depositing with your credit card, don't worry as we have plenty of other alternatives. For the best solutions for you, visit our Casino Rewards Banking Helper and choose your location to view the available options or contact email@example.com.
- 3.4 - Why are my deposits being rejected?
Why are my deposits being rejected?
Deposits can be rejected for numerous reasons many of which have nothing to do with your credit. Your request for a deposit is sent via the Internet. If your deposit request is interrupted along this route, our bank will reject the transaction instead of processing it with incomplete data.
Additional reasons are that your billing information doesn't match the credit card information that you entered on the casino banking page. If you put in a different zip code or your house address and your bill is sent to your office then the deposit more than likely will be rejected. If you feel that your rejections are in error then firstly check the credit card information that you used to register the card. If you feel there may have been an error then contact the help desk and we can remove the card so that you can re-enter the details.
Your credit card company may have set controls (or barriers) to prevent potential fraudulent transactions. If several deposits were rejected within a short period of time, your credit card company may block your card for all transactions. This is an automatic response and may also happen if three or more deposits for the same small amount are processed by one merchant (or processor) to your credit card.
The casino also has daily and monthly limits on credit cards that may have been reached. You can request that your card be refreshed by contacting our support desk.
Some credit cards may also have been blocked due to international sales, Internet problems and traffic congestion which may cause rejections. You may also have been experiencing problems due to your issuing bank denying you your right to play online. Should you be experiencing problems depositing on your credit card, please contact our call centre on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you feel that your credit card is getting rejected incorrectly please contact the help desk so that we can assist in resolving the problem.

- 4.1 - What is the Casino Rewards VIP loyalty program?
What is the Casino Rewards VIP loyalty program?
The Casino Rewards loyalty program is just like an airline alliance program. With over 30 different casinos being members of the Casino Rewards program, all the loyalty points you earn on any of these partner casinos are added together into a single VIP account. Better still, you can redeem your VIP points at any partner casino of the Casino Rewards program where you have an active account.
When you play at Challenge Casino you'll be awarded VIP loyalty points. Every 100 points is worth a dollar in chips. There are also numerous promotions which earn you VIP points. Just like frequent flyer points, the VIP loyalty program rewards players for their loyalty. The more you play the more rewards you get - and since they're your points we put you in control of them. Every month we'll run promotions that add additional points to your account. You'll be amazed how quickly your points accumulate and all points will be automatically added to your casino account.
You can go to the Casino Rewards site and check your account at any time. Other casinos make you wait until they're ready to give you credit. We let you do it at any time. As long as you've got 1,000 points in your account you can withdraw when you want to.

- 4.3 - What is my username and password?
What is my username and password?
Your username at the VIP Club is different than your casino username. Your VIP username is automatically set as your firstname_lastname in exactly the same way that you registered when you joined the casino. So if you entered spaces or initials when you joined these must be entered in your username when you login at the VIP Club. Your password is set when you join the VIP Club and for security reasons we recommend using a different one than you casino password.
- 4.4 - What if I forget my VIP password?

If that doesn't work please click this link or go to the VIP login page and click on the Forgot Password button and enter your email address in the box. Once you click submit, an email will be sent to you. This email should arrive in a few minutes, although it can take up to 2 hours. The email will contain your password or if you have not set one up, it will contain a link that you can either click on or cut and paste into a web browser. This link will log you into the VIP section and prompt you to setup a new VIP password. This new password won't change the password you use for entering the casino.

Why does it take so long to download some new games?
The number of games you have selected to download, the size of the game and your Internet connection speed all affect the time it takes for a game to download. As long as you are connected to the Internet the games will download even if your connection isn't particularly good.
- 5.4 - Why does a game sometimes freeze or remaining spinning?
Why does a game sometimes freeze or remaining spinning?
This is usually caused by your Internet connection becoming slow or interrupted. Your connection to the gaming server has been temporarily interruped and your computer has not yet successfully received the communicated outcome of your wager.
As soon as our gaming servers receive your wager, a random number generator calculates a result for that wager and this is communicated back to your computer. So if you lose connection while playing, the gaming server detects that you have lost connection temporarily and attempts to retry sending your wager result to your computer. If it is unsuccessful, you will receive notice of an unfinished bet the next time you start that game.
