Does anyone here have opinions on


1vice

gtbets

youwager

hollywood

betmania

betowi


Might make deposits with them since they start allowing bitcoin deposits there and some even allow withdraw. I would only play there if they allow bitcoin withdraws.


Also whats the opinion on that book called HRWager. To me, it seems like a really small book. It seems to get lot of praise on eogforum but from what i read, they mostly take wu/mg deposits which is no more than 800 max. So how does a book like that even make much money especially when i read about how they always give good offers to many players etc.

I'm a casual sports bettor trying to pick a good site. I've read through the stickies + researched a bit. The consensus seems to be that 5dimes is better than Bovada? Is that right?

Hey!

I am looking to start betting football online. As a US player, it appears I am limited to a few options. The two I have in mind are through Bovada or Sportsbetting.ag .

As a new player I just want to do straight bets (bet on who I think will win). Is that betting on the money line?

Also, any recommendations for a sports betting site?

Thank you!

Just save your money and don't play! Stick to fantasy sports/daily leagues. You will eventually regret getting started and it will only suck you dry (not in a good way)! You will never see a return on betting only money line bets

If just wanting to bet moneylines (<-- yes who will win with no spread) and not worry about rollover 5Dimes.eu is your best site. The margins are lower, and they have lower (and some free) payout methods too.

With any of these other sites Google search for active payout threads before depositing.

If you don't already have an account, open one and take a bonus at Bovada.

BetOnline and Sportsbetting.ag don't just join and play for their initial offer. If open accounts but don't deposit, you'll eventually get a 100% free play offer and don't feel rushed to take it. if need be wait till bankroll is large enough to take the max bonus and grab it a future time. They send these every football season and starts as exclusive 75% offer. Then wait and don't deposit and will find a 100% one comes next. You'll probably find a 100% one sooner too, just saying before football season always have these for people with accounts that haven't deposited before.

Yea that 2% on vig on ml bets at 5dimes is sure way worse than the 10%+ you get on dfs.

I don't use bitcoin very much but have seen it in the cashier as a withdrawal option at Bookmaker and 5Dimes.

I've bet a ton of games on Bovada the first two weeks. If you looked today the lines for next week probably weren't up yet.

I have both and 5dimes is better for sports bets by far.

That being said I do sometimes get better lines on Bovada, it's good to have options.

Dear Client,

Due to changing financial regulations we are no longer able to offer customers the service to allow them to make account to account transfers.

This restriction will also apply to Sportsbook account transfers. Your transfer privileges have been removed from your Pinnacle Sports account.

We do apologize for this change, however we are no longer in a position where we can continue to offer this service.

Kind Regards,
Customer Service Department / Pinnacle Sports

made a bet 45 minutes ago on Men's FIVB Volleyball, USA vs Venezuela. Dimes has it listed as starting at 11:10pm. I looked the game up on the FIVB website after placing (yeah...), it was already 1-1. USA won 25-13, then lost the second set 24-26. The only bet offered on 5Dimes was set spread +/- 2 . Trying to get them to cancel the bet now. I have screenshots and everything

Well that seems pretty scummy if they were only offering the losing side - seems like a legit mistake if they were offering the winning side as well, although could be a freeroll attempt they dont exactly have the best reputation (although I havent had any issues there personally yet, but I only bet for small amounts there)

That's the problem, they've "made mistakes" before. Improperly grading wagers, thinking people won't notice, then denying that they've been wrong. Or offering lines, having you bet on it, then cancelling it after it wins, saying the line was "off". I've got all the screenshots for later

Now, I don't know where they go for info but I trust that the official event webpage would be somewhat reliable.

http://worldcup.2015.men.fivb.com/en...enezuela/match

If they have a start time saying 11pm, but whatever game has already started and I bet the winner, what would happen do you think? Cos it ought to be the same if it were reversed. All I want is a fair shot

Regarding Jazzette books: Anyone know if its possible to open a hollywoodsportsbook account after being limited at sportsbook.com?

I asked chat and they said, as long as I don't seek a deposit bonus its fine. But, I don't trust them completely, I have thousands locked up in futures at sportsbook, and my carbon account is locked, I'm not sure if its because they see my sportsbook account or if its a state issue or something.
