Betsson Review: It had been a while since did anything with them. New account, deposited only to find out limits on college football were $83 which isn't too surprising for Euro bookie. There was a place to upload documents and is itemized. For NETELLER I sent them SS of my info page that shows account # and address and of the transaction page. Then also ID and cable TV bill. Got 3 emails about an hour later that these were all approved. Pretty standard to rollover deposits once so did some live betting to get that out of way and a little more than doubled deposit. At cash out money taken out of account instantly, about 40 minutes later money was in NETELLER.
I just relocated to canada for online poker but will want to have funds in pinnacle sports, matchbook and having an account with moneybooker.
Does pinnacle or matchbook require you to submit proof of lease/bank statement when you create the account? Or do they only ask for it when you cashout? I am in apartment arleady and will be getting a canadian bank account soon.
Drewphish2 if you've already had an account before then change the address with a copy of Canadian drivers license and utility bill at each book (bank account not needed). This (not opening new accounts) is the proper way to do it. If you don't have these then wait until you get them. For places you've never had an account you can open now but expect to need these before cashing out.
Having trouble 4-years later changing my postup account at thegreek to my new address. I sent them ID and utility bill I've used to change Pinnacle, CRIS, NETELLER, Skrill, EntroPay and several others without hassle. The only other company ever had a problem with was PokerStars. Anyway they responded they are "unable to view the contents of the utility bill sent" waiting to hear back what that means.
So after sending TheGreek a bunch of documents now I get:
"As previously advised we are an English speaking company, therefore please translate the documents verifying your address to English. "
Too much a pain in the ass to deal with. I've sent them a drivers license, cable tv bill, child's birth certificate (in order to show how my name is spelled without a doubt as that had English with character spelling too), car loan document, excise tax bill, bank book, and then screen shots of NETELLER and Skrill accounts setting page. Also the scans are super large (full size) so is no doubt about the resolution.
Edit: Still working on it now (guess they just wanted me to type a translation near relevant parts)

Depends on the book. Most won't care at that limit. A select few (ex: Marathon Bet, Stan James) will and give 0.48 limits or w/e quick enough. Some care only based on winnings. If you did that forever and for some reason never moved up at a certain point SIA,Bodog, etc. would cut it off. Most though don't sweat the small money.
I understand it depend on the book, but like if I arb for a month at those low levels and then stop for a month then maybe do some more later, I hope I will stay under the radar.
BTW since the Full Tilt fiasco, I don't like to keep my roll online when inactive so I clean all my accounts (except those linked with poker) when I take breaks. I don't know how the books are viewing my BR management.
Relocated to canada from the us. When i was in the us i recalled i got these kickback bonuses in addition to the signup bonus when i signed up with thegreek and bookmaker. I think the site back then was called biggerbonus.com.
I would like to sign up for a pinnacle account, dsi, youwager and also a few others. I already have accts at 5dimes, bookmaker, greek, heritage, matchbook, sia etc.
Is there any kickback bonuses for these sites? From what i researched the only thing there is is for pinnacle sports is you signing up for SBR to become an sbr pro. But besides that, is there anything else?
I know "what sportsbook should I use" questions are super lame, I hated them years ago when I was a regular in this forum, but since we've got a thread for it and I know nothing about the post-UIGEA state of online sports betting, I guess I might as well do it. Here are the details of what I'm looking for:
I don't need anything super sharp at the moment. I have the knowledge and skills of a potentially sharp bettor, but neither the time nor the bankroll to dedicate towards being such at the moment. So I just want one site where I can casual-bet at low limits to get the taste of it again. Please help me find ONE appropriate site that BEST meets my needs.
* Must allow US bettors
* Must have easy deposit/withdrawal options
* Preferably zero fees for deposits and withdrawals in the $250-$1000 range. If I'm betting $10 a game I don't want it to cost me five units to get my money out.
* After that, sharper concerns like low juice and such are nice as tiebreakers, since I won't be able to line shop. Good bonuses at those deposit levels are also fun. None of this matters as much as ease of use, though. I'm just looking to have some fun at the small stakes level for now, and willing to sacrifice a little EV to do it.
5dimes. Deposit fees cover (for over $250 I think). If you have made no withdrawals in past 30 days, you can request one on Mondays between 9AM to 1PM that will have $40 of the fees covered (if under $40 then withdrawal is free, if over this is deducted from cost). While they are not automated they also do player to player exchanges so can potentially exchange money off too.
If you must have one account only then this is a good choice for other reasons too. Reduced juice, many wagering options, good future odds etc. I would however also suggest if you can swing it, send a couple bets to Bovada and Carbon too or eventually do so. At those two you will find props and off market prices that you can pick off. Also if you're a poker player note that both have poker as does 5dimes too. And all three of those are on separate poker networks and have unique sportsbooks from each other.
Thank you! I actually looked over the 5Dimes website before posting, thinking that htey seemed promising and hoping to answer this question myself, but I couldn't find anything about waiving the withdrawal fees so I wasn't sure if they would meet my needs. Since that was my only hesitation it looks like they're golden for my needs.
And I'll keep Bovada and Carbon in mind when my bankroll allows me to have a second account, not being able to line shop definitely hurts.
Relocated to canada so i could play on stars. BUt want to play on pinny, match, thegreek etc. I sent in my documents to the greek... bank statement and address along with my usa id. I was told i cannot open a greek account without canadian id.
Is this normal? Pinny and match told me i would have no proble.
Can you tell me what sites are like this then? I'm shocked that thegreek would do this. You seriously need a canadian id? So basically if i relocate anywhere in the world, i can't use the greek b/c i don't have that country's id?
If you truly relocated somewhere then you should have that country's ID, no? Why not just get a Canadian drivers license? I'm a US citizen too but live in Asia. I have gotten a driving license in every country I've lived.
Anyway, the ones I know first hand is that a Neteller rep told me they won't accept American passport as an ID and a Fortuna rep that their sportsbooks won't knowingly accept American citizens regardless of where they live.
