ive taken a pretty penny from bovada/bodog, and while they make it as hard as possible to withdraw, take forever and even bounce a check or two, Ive always been paid in full.

Never had a 5d check take more than 6 days, small sample size though.

Re Bovada/Bodog- I have not gotten a check in a while from them but had 0 problems with numerous withdrawals by check when I played poker there. All were within 2 weeks from request. I did see that they were pretty slow a few months ago. Requested check on 12/11 and was approved today, they say 10 business days and will update here when I receive it.

bet cris I think, anything but 5dimes

Bookmaker for larger wager sizes

and I am sure this will be moved to that thread you mentioned and Propplayer will give a much more adequate answer, it will also help to know what you are betting and max wager size.

The issue there now is their tolerance to risk has gotten much lower. In the past could win $10K off them before they would close account. Then a couple years ago was more like $3K. Now if you come in and bet only those underdogs, it takes just a few bets for them to say risk management department has made decision to close account. When this happens they do pay. So yeah is worth joining and hitting those soft lines, just don't expect to last long is all.
Hey more noob questions from me. So I ended up putting 500 bucks in sportsinteraction, they give a 10% bonus so account started with 550. Apparently I cannot withdrawl becasue I have to clear 3x the amount (550x3) = 1650. I remember my account at Bodog, the 3x only applies to the bonus and not the deposit as well... Is this standard practice for all books to include your deposit as the roll over? It's going to take forever to find enough neutral EV bets to clear this.

Also, betfair or matchbook?

Depends how you define Euro book. Intertops is Antigua based but started in the UK, is owned by a German and has European players. They have teasers. Limits are small with $550 max stake but good options and not many shades. Bet365 has teaser but odds are horrible 2-team 6-point are -120. Not many Euro books have teasers.

Re: Bonus terms. Deposit + bonus is standard.

Betfair or Matchbook. Compare liquidity for markets are interested in and factor commission rate. For many starting Matchbook likely is better choice. I haven't used them in forever though.

He played in the game but did not have any catches and wasnt listed in the boxscore. I got on livechat but they did not reverse it despite me sending two articles and a video. Ive never had this problem before - what more can I do?

Here is the exchange:

Arthur Forbes: Thanks. Can you explain the error?

Derek: Keenan Davis played. he just did not have any catches.

Derek: http://www.kcrg.com/sports/local/Gra...179822611.html

Derek: halfway down that link it shows he did play

Arthur Forbes: I'm sorry for the delay. I'll be right with you...

Arthur Forbes: Kindly please hold on for a moment while I review the account for you, your patience is highly appreciated.

Arthur Forbes: This wager is under review at this moment, and it will take some time for a final resolution. We appreciate your patience.

Arthur Forbes: We have Carl Davis and Keenan Davis on the same team. Keenan Davis never played at all, that means the wager is considered a no action.

Arthur Forbes: Sorry about that.

Derek: that article says Keenan Davis did play and started

Derek: I can find other articles that also show keenan davis played

Arthur Forbes: That's a mistake. Keenan Davis never played at all.

Arthur Forbes: Is there anything else I can assist you with at this time?

Derek: http://thegazette.com/2012/11/17/iow...michigans-way/

Derek: this article also talks about him playing

Arthur Forbes: There's a mistake on that article. Keenan Davis never played.

Derek: he is #6 for Iowa. 9 seconds into this video it shows him trying to make a block.

Derek: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFvUEkNd_sw

Arthur Forbes: Keenan Davis never played. Sorry about that.

Arthur Forbes: Anything else besides this?
just went through this with Bovada and after the 3rd person they finaly got it straight. sorry about these guys blatantly cheating you. hope u get it fixed. It makes my blood boil, and it isn't even my dough...

thanks, it's just sick. im fortunate to have withdrawn original deposit a few weeks ago when these ******s stopped allowing free half points on/off the 7 & 3. No wonder they went out of biz and makes me wonder if it was ever more than a shell to begin with. SBR is completely worthless.

prop, irt bodog slow payouts: define slow payouts.

last one I got from there last was maybe early october. took like 3.5 weeks from request to rec'd.

I'll go ahead and be the guinea pig for anyone thats curious, the second I get home I'm going to withdraw about 80% of my balance.

mostly bc of reasons unrelated to bodog, but for the time being I'm gonna leave a minimal amount there for poker and props only. it's easy for me to deposit there so whenever I need to I can.

recently went through a similar ordeal with them. twice, because rather than regrading it in their system, they did it on an account by account basis

guinea pig update: req'd check on 12/19, processed/money taken out/check sent on 12/20. said 10 business days which with the holidays and all it's def not late yet.

just updating b/c i read sbr thread about their checks not clearing because they're written on international banks w/o a 9-digit tracking number.

they've def sent checks that look xeroxed before, and i've had 9 day holds put on because nowhere on the check did it say the word "dollars" while written on a canadian bank.

can't lie, i'm a little worried to see the check when it comes. daddy needs a new gun and some new titleist irons.
