MyBookie froze my account - BEWARE

Be careful of MyBookie. I've heard warning signs in the past but didn't heed.

I started an account last summer.

I'm by no means a pro bettor, but I'm also not dumb. I'd call myself a rec+ player. I would bet anywhere from $30 on long-shot futures to $100-300 on sides/totals/props, and $500 on long-term RSWs. Nothing crazy to break the bank.

I went through the normal progression of normal betting -> lagged approval -> $100 max bets.

About two weeks ago, I was limited to $1 max. I called to ask, and after being put on hold 2-3 times, my account was frozen. It's been a pain to speak to anyone at MyBookie about what they are doing and why I'm frozen.

Finally a "supervisor" told me that they are reviewing my account for "non-recreational" (read: winning) betting. Their T&C say they can confiscate any winnings deemed non-recreational. Basically, if I understand correctly, they will gladly take your money if you lose, and if you are a long-term winner, they will still take your money.

MyBookie claims my account is still "under review", but at this point I am not counting on any recoup of funds.

BEWARE. Scam book, shady business practices, DO NOT USE.

SBR has them rated as C+ which basically = s**t book. Stick to the A+ books like Pinnacle, Bookmaker, etc.
