I would like to file a complaint regarding Redibids online and sweepstakes businesses in Chesapeake and Va. Beach Va.
I have patronized these businesses on several occasions, and feel that they are not treating the patrons fairly. The games are failing to go to bonuses and the auctions are not going off at fair amount. Because every bid cost .63 cent and they give you the past three averages, of the auction and it doubles and triples the amount of the average amount. It is suppose to be a penny auction but for every penny it cost 6$ and 30 cents because every 10 bids equals one penny.
I can go into the business and spend 200$ and not go to the bonus once and sometimes go to the bonuses and get zero. which has been happening more lately. They are really ripping the patrons off a lot them have been complaining about how the games have been doing lately. They don't payout at all you might get up to a 100$ and then your computer will shut down sometimes it reboots itself and some times they have to reboot it for you.
But once it reboots you never see another bonus and it takes all the money back that you have won. I realize that i take a chance when going in to these establishments, but i also want to be treated fairly when i spend my money. that's why i am asking for these businesses to be investigated. Attached is a video of a wal mart card that was suppose to go off at 48.12 but as you see it has not gone off and if you add up the money they have made off that card.
The are ripping the patrons off because they have made 10 times the amount of that card and they are not paying out. I feel that if i win that auction i shouldn't have to pay the amount that the auction ends at because i have already been paying for it the whole time. And also i feel that i shouldn't have to compete with the people playing online, when i am in the business playing they don't have the same games and they don't have they same rules. They can not redeem the money the win and me being in the business can redeem the money i win.
I feel it is illegal that i have to be competing with them for the same items. when i am in a business with a different name.
