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

What's the best site for a US player to make a small wager on a Super Bowl winner and then get paid out in the unlikely event the bet wins?

I've been trying to withdrawal my initial investment for two weeks. Again, just testing before any real investment there. They waited a few days and canceled my first request for some additional security thing. Okay, you could have asked those questions when I deposited, but no big deal.

Now after four days they canceled my request again. No e-mail to explain. Nothing.

I asked them about it just now. I was told they, "Tried to call me and I didn't answer" so they canceled my withdrawal again. Quite rude in the explanation although maybe language barrier was the cause.

They couldn't tell me what the phone call was about. Why a phone call and not an e-mail. Who answers generic calls from toll free numbers anyway?

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone else ever get a payout from 5 dimes? Their low cost vig is easily explained if they only pay out when someone answers a phone call.
I feel I need to update. This w/d eventually got done. Ironically (or maybe not) done within hours of my having posted. I received an e-mail asking me to call and verify. I did and all is well.

Further f/u, a 2nd w/d request was just processed today, no phone call needed.

Thumbs up to 5 dimes.

5Dimes is pretty legit. They have some security precautions that prevent scams in the long run, like when you log in from a new device, or when are new to them. Without that, people would scam them relentlessly. You can still operate with confidence with them, as long as you are on the up and up. But they are pretty good about noticing when something might be off. I like 5Dimes and Bookmaker, though there are others out there. Pinnacle was great.

There is nothing worse than having money offshore, sweating a game, winning, and then sweating the payout. The rage factor is immense. On the flip side, there is nothing better than knowing that you will get a smooth withdrawal.

DSI used to be under the Bookmaker banner. They have had some slow pay issues over the last year. Would avoid for a few years, until it is 100 percent certain they are legit. Even then, they don't offer any value over the A+ books. They can tout them all they want, but they will have to earn their reputation back.

DSI limited me very quickly, and are clearly no longer under the bookmaker umbrella i.e. in the month I wasn't limited they put up a ton of bad lines. I'd group them in with Sportsbook.ag and Bovada w/o even considering the payout issues that are well documented by this point.

DSI is currently taking 10k bets on H+R+E prop bets. I wish I had an account.

It also seems like they're just copying Pinny lines now.

Gaseo still gets cashed out in checks I imagine.

No, from what I have read, there were two or three inexcusable slow pays for real money (at least 6 months), and they have not been resolved as of now. I don't have an account there....I used to. Actually, maybe it is still active...not even sure. No problem getting paid at all when I played there, but that was three to four years ago.

Yes if you use their "new" sportsbook which was just a sportsbook hooked up to Pinnacles API feed. It is currently down since Pinnacle is now blocking access to their API for a lot of people. Their old "retro" sportsbook has the smaller limits and different lines.

Anyone have experience with Intertops? Apparently they accept US customers which I did not know.

Pinny has some live games that i dont have access to.

Has that happened with any of you ?

What's about that ? It is intentionaly or their software is just plain bad ?

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

I just want to post a warning to not deposit with crsportsbet.ag. After delaying but ultimately paying me for several 1k cash outs. Then closed my account as I am not a “rec player”. They said I would be paid the rest of my balance of $913 in 30 days. That was on April 10th. They have now cutoff all communication with me. I have no chat option, emails go unanswered. And apparently they have blocked my phone number as nobody answers but if I call on a friends phone it gets answered quickly.

If anyone has any ideas on how I can get paid or at least warn others let me know. I filed a complaint with sportsbook review but did not hear back from them.

Changes by the day. Whoever runs their prop stuff isn't great. Some bases props you can get 100-200 on a fresh account, sometimes 500 on random ones. Nothing seems to be consistent.

Quick update, or lack of, on Topbet. Seeing as NFL season is kicking off im sure people are looking for new books.

Still waiting for over a year for my payouts from Topbet, do not deposit at Topbet if you intend on seeing your money again.

Bovada live betting was the nuts. Then they "updated" it, and now it sucks.

Curious if anybody else has gotten a message about income verification from Skrill. Are they cracking down on gamblers?
