Yesterday, August 16th, was the 40th business day from when I initiated 1 of 2 withdrawals from my account.

I am still waiting for my money. I asked MA for an update on the 38th business day and I received the standard cut and paste response of 40 business days blah blah and they closed the ticket without any further comment.

So just an FYI for anyone else waiting on a withdrawal... they are taking longer then the posted time currently.

Forty Swedish business days means 60 calendar days.

A withdrawal usually takes 2 months (pending to committed status) + a couple of days for interbank transfer. Peridod.

I've waited 40 business days as well. My withdrawal got registered on the 24th of June.
It has never taken this long before... This is the most annoying thing about this game. Why can't it be like every other gambling site where it takes like 2 days to make a withdrawal, straight to the card you used for the initial deposit...... No hassle with bank info and shieeeeee.

It takes MA two months of passing the hat around the office, to come up with your withdrawal.

As it turns out, I simply needed to wait one additional business day - the transfer has been COMMITTED as of this morning!!

I hope my second withdrawal I am currently waiting for goes through in the same time frame. Its a bit larger then the first tho... not that it should matter.

Might be able to get the brakes done on my truck before they fall right off after all! LOL

Withdraw 08.07.2013 ... Still pending after 64 days (can't be arsed to count what the business days have been) ... Quite disappointing to see MA going in the wrong direction with this.


Their annual reports aside is this behavior only accelerating withdrawals imo. People that have invested and are losing faith are more likely to withdraw vs. those that have good faith.

Once this and the next withdrawal is through I have withdrawn a rather large 5-digit sum (Euro) which could still be with MA if it hadn't been for their annual reports, their lack of communication and the idiotic withdrawal times ... Shame really as on paper EU is a great investment opportunity.

2 months to withdraw your own money, that's ridiculous, It's bad enough a cheque takes 3 days to clear in this day an age but 2 months that's unbelievable.

40 business days expired on 30.08. No official holidays during that period according to wiki.

They are a business week late.

OUCH!

I haven't withdrawn all at once... And seing that they have confirmed a seperate withdrawal (as in this thread) I expect mine to be confirmed on Thursday ... See whether this actually happens.

Logged in today to see what was taking this withdraw so long, my 31k peds are back on my ped card. the withdraw entry on the website transaction history has been removed.

No support contacted me to say hey your withdraw failed. or explain why...nope just 4 months of waiting on this down the drain, and if support responds to my ticket and I get to try again to withdraw, maybe it will take another 4 months of waiting. Maybe I should jsut spend it all on toys.
