betjam / thegreek leaving usa market

anyone else play @ betjam and/or thegreek?

i've done business with Spriro for over a decade...its truly sad that they will no longer be servicing the usa market

BetJamaica to close today; TheGreek no longer booking US players
7/23/2011 5:50:04 AM

BetJamaica Players
After 8 years BetJamaica will close its doors. Non-US account holders will see their accounts moved to parent sportsbook, TheGreek (SBR rating A+). If the player already has an account at TheGreek balances will be merged. The remainder of BetJamaica players will be moved to Heritage Sportsbook (SBR rating B+).
TheGreek's USA-based players
Accounts held by players within the USA will be moved to Heritage Sportsbook. Yesterday SBR spoke with the owner of the Jamaican group, The Greek, who stated that he personally guarantees player funds and withdrawals of these balances through Heritage Sports. Players with balances are free to play or withdraw their funds from Heritage as if accounts were still at TheGreek or BetJamaica. Players will be asked to acknowledge the account transfer to Heritage when they log in to their accounts at BetJam or TheGreek. | Forum Topic

Edit 6:30 AM: All pending wagers, including prop futures, will be honored and transferred with balances to Heritage Sports.

Re: betjam / thegreek leaving usa market

sorry try emailing heritage, they replied to me in 3 minutes to arrange a withdraw. they have pretty good CS. also maybe TBAB will finally be removed from their website as a stiff? saw this on sbr

CREDIT WAGERING HAS BEEN SOLD
The Final straw right here.


Wagering will not be available until August 1st 2011

New and exciting policy changes are coming.

A new and by far the best funding and payout solution will be available.

All customers can still access their account.

A new website will make it easier to navigate.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but in the long run new ownership will PAY CUSTOMERS ON TIME!

Thank you for your patience and being part of Credit Wagering for 3 and many more years to come.

Re: betjam / thegreek leaving usa market

noob question:
Since it looks like there is a chance that online poker will be legal in the USA one of these days, is there any chance of online sports betting becoming legal in the USA in the next few years?

Re: betjam / thegreek leaving usa market

I'm considering finding the "baltic avenue" of canada and finding out the cost to rent + dual citizenship.

Currently googling at the moment. I don't think 5dimes + bookmaker will be enough...those are the oonly books I trust as of today.

lol baltic avenue of canada is like winnipeg. montreal actually isn't bad or expensive but could be disagreeable to certain types of americans.

if you are american and not betting with bitcoins yet, you are nuts and deserve to get raped time and again with your allegedly 'safe' offshore outs.
