So ranking-wise, what is the general consensus on the top 5-8 online books? Especially if we can't trust SBR anymore.

I'd be a bit cautious on 5dimes. Have been a customer for ten years with no problems, they bounced a check to me from a processor they know was bad and are being sketchy about paying the money back, as of now even with a bank statment they are saying they can't refund the money. Possible the bad processor put a big dent in their finances. Just be aware.

Has anyone else done any research on the new Wagerr project? It's promising decentralized betting for its users once it has launched, using blockchain/smart contracts.

They might be biting off more than they can chew though, there's definitely a lot of potential issues with a system like theirs. But it'll be interesting to see how it works out in the long run.

Hi,

I'm looking for a (few) sportsbooks that i will absolutely NOT get stiffed at... was wondering what the recommendations are... Can't afford to get stiffed/money confiscated because you're a 'syndicate' (as per nitrogensports).

I know pinnacle is up there... but what else? BetOnline and Bookmaker?

I notice all the other books out there have much much more "juice"... is there any other book that is similar to pinnacle?

Re: Online Sportsbooks Discussion Thread (Which Are Best? Who offers X? etc. Discuss Here)

Does anyone know exactly which books share Heritage's risk management database? I know that the books using it include:

Heritage
Wagerweb
ABC Islands/Jazz/LooseLines

I suspect, but I'm not sure that it's also used by:

America's Bookie/Canada's Bookie/1Vice

They take a harsh line on any sort of winning small market bettor/bonus chaser/wong teaser player/scalper/AP player and it would be useful to the community to know exactly which books are in on it. Can anyone shed light on this?

Thanks in advance

Bit of an update, I ended up investing a little in it shortly afterwards as a longshot since the potential payoff seemed to outweigh the risk by a reasonable enough amount. I got it around 4 cents each in June and it's around 7 cents now so I'm pretty happy so far.

I've been researching it the past few months and following it. Basically it will be by players, for players...since the coin holders will make the decisions, based on how much they have(25k tokens at a time). If they have enough (25k tokens also) then they can even set up a server to get accurate sports results and validate bets, and receive the fees from those bets.

There will be a decentralized network of hundreds or thousands of servers, similar to the blockchain of bitcoin. Well actually Dash tbh, since it is a modified fork of Dash specifically for handling sports bets. This also means that it will be Dash-like in that it is proof-of-stake, meaning you can lease your coins in return for a small about of extra coins in return for helping keep the network more secure. Those leasing the coins are essentially the same as the miners on Bitcoin, which is proof-of-work...except without having to constantly run mining equipment.

Should people invest in it? Idk really, since it's a personal decision. But it's definitely worth it to have it on your radar for soft lines and such, once it launches. They did put up a simple bet for the Mayweather/McGregor fight while we wait, with a fee of 2% and last I saw the line was at +/-550...with the 2% taken from the winner's share.

Another thing to note about a decentralized network, there is no central authority to ban long-time winners or impose restrictions on them(I'm restricted on Merge simply for winning and it sucks). There is very little overhead and fees, because a great deal of the middlemen will be cut out and users will have a direct say on what an appropriate fee structure should be.

Also having their own token specifically for sports betting will allow for a lot more freedom in how to structure betting, rather than being bitcoin- or fiat-based. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see books offloading some of their risk onto this, since this thing should be able to handle almost anything you can throw at it and work out a safe balance.

I don't mean to come off as too much of a shill lol, but anyone who's ever been screwed over by a centralized gambling network will probably be interested in this or at least the technology behind it. Decentralized is probably a word you're going to hear more and more in the gambling world over the coming years, and I hope it can solve at least some of the more serious problems plaguing gamblers these days. I don't think it's a cure-all though(that would be wayyy to naive), there's still a ton of work to be done.

If you have any questions about it, let me know and I'll try to answer them or at least put you in touch with an appropriate member of their dev team. They have been very good so far about taking advice from experienced bettors and industry experts, and have worked well with their community.

Re: Online Sportsbooks Discussion Thread (Which Are Best? Who offers X? etc. Discuss Here)

What's the proper move when a book makes a grading mistake in your favor? The bet was from several days ago - it shows up correctly as graded wagers, but under the transactions something weird happened where the loss is missing and I was incorrectly credited twice with my bet amount for a bet made after the missing loss.

Well they finally corrected their mistake and now I have a negative balance lol.

Any us-based online sportsbooks have a live section comparable to Bovavdas? (Ease of use, great lines, many soccer options (Both sides to score) out there?

Re: Online Sportsbooks Discussion Thread (Which Are Best? Who offers X? etc. Discuss Here)

are you guys usually using bonuses? Would love to but with rollovers, usually being 10x(maybe more? that was the rollover on the last bonus I potentially used), that commits me to a lot more betting than I intend to do. I am simply doing some futures for this NFL season right now.

Re: Online Sportsbooks Discussion Thread (Which Are Best? Who offers X? etc. Discuss Here)

I've read here that you can be limited on certain sportsbooks. I rarely, if ever bet on sports, but I found a futures line that I think all books seem to have off by magnitudes. The best odds I found were on William Hill @ 13/2, most others are 6/1, or 11/2 for the bet I want to make.
Will i have any difficulty making a season long bet, only 1 bet worth about 10k CAD, and then withdrawing if it settles in my favour?

Most online books will limit you pretty quick if they think you aren't long term profitable for them. Not sure what the best btc sports site is for US people. Its definitely not 5d though.
