Same question for Bovada and BetOnline.
@4k now and I do not think they have blinked, aiming for 10k win then cash it all off to boycott and stick it to the man #Dan711

Bovada

12/11 check requested

12/13 approved

12/23 received tracking #

12/29 tracking # showed up in system

1/04 F.E. estimated delivery date


So although it is certainly taking more than 10 business days like they quote, it is not a 'slow pay' by the typically used definition (although it is slow).

ah. i'm forgetting the 'get tracking number' step which hasn't happened yet. haha

also probably not including the 'in 3 months it gets returned w/fees' step, but hopefully that was just for someone else and not me or you.

Indeed. I have seen those probs but I think they are pretty rare (we obv only hear about it when one bounces or isn't accepted). I've had 9 total checks from Bodog/Bovada and had 0 problems with any (albeit most were from last year).

honestly i don't think i've had one in the past 2 years or so that i WASN'T worried about in some way. the ones that looked like they were typed on a computer were the worst.

i got the back and forth down tho..."yes i know who sent me this, yes it is 'from online', just deposit it and put the 9 day hold on it, thanks"

Best site for infrequent large better

After reading up on sbr I don't know who to trust.
Can someone please recommend a site for me.

Looking to bet 2k on NCAA national championship.
My head is spinning with the bonus rules, fees etc.

I want to wager 2k on this game and hopefully I win and cash out.

What is the best most trustworthy site for this situation.
It doesn't seem like the bonuses are worth chasing for me because I don't want to wager 20k to pocket a $500 bonus.

Please someone recommend a site that will be my best value when f
Deposit and withdraw fees are taken into consideration.

Thank in advance.

Please don't send me referral links. I refuse to let anyone refer me that way people can answer with more honesty to which is the actual best.

If you live outside the US then PinnacleSports.com for sure.

If you are in the US, you are running late here. One bet and done - sites don't like due to processing fees. Your best bet would have been money order deposits. Without contacts you won't have a good option for one and done where payouts are low cost. Using multiple sites will be better.

I'd suggest $500 each to 4 of the sites on this list:

Bovada
5Dimes
Legends
Heritage
Justbet
CarbonSports (payouts running 3-4 weeks right now, but this group has been slower before)

Deposit to two of them with Western Union and the other two with MoneyGram - less flags - have each pick up the fee and decline bonuses.

The reason I say 4 sites is less likely to have an issue over them covering the fees and you cashing out after one bet. If an issue then won't be with all three - maybe 1 has a term that needs more cover play (you can ask). The other reason cashing out $1,000 (assuming are betting close to even money) is easier than $4,000.

Bookmaker is too expensive on cash out fees to be an option. However if you occasionally bet $2K per game (a few times year at least). Then include them as one of the sites 4 sites. Purchase a debit card from them for $25.00 and then can get low cost payouts in the future to this method. It takes a while to get the card. Going forward use them.

If you had more time I would have suggested moneyorder by courier to 5Dimes for full amount and to not have them cover the fee so no issues with posting up and cashing right out.

Thanks for the info guys.
It sounds like the multiple sites is the way to go.
Is the idea behind turning down the bonuses just for easier withdrawal?

I remember reading at least one of the sites would not allow withdrawal until bonus rollover was complete.

Also I am a US player or I would be on pinnacle.
Have not placed an online wager in probably 6 years but a coworker offered me nd+14 for 2k and I figure I'd try to middle it which is why I am looking in the first place. I will not be wagering regularly.

Greatly appreciate the quick replys. Nice to have recommendations from people who have nothing to gain.

Bonuses trigger rollover requirements. You have to decline the bonus prior to betting.

Is the best way to load money on Bovada by money transfer? there appears to be heavy fees when your forced to cash out by money transfer. I have recently used prepaid debit cards with fine results minus the 5% fee and the 5$ fee for buying the card. The checks are sketchy and slow but they are free. Should i stick with the prepaid cards? or should I be using money transfer?

money transfer is nice because it's free (they cover fees) and relatively quick. if you're only sending small amounts and 5% isn't much, then prepaid may be a bit more convenient. no other options are better for us players.

I would like to reload 500 and expect more than 35 in fees to reload using a prepaid card. wont i be charged more than this every cash out by money transfer?

How and where does the money transfer work? Western union at a 7-11? My bank?

I'm under the impression you can deposit with p2p and receive a check for free.

These places are everywhere, go to their website, click location finder. There's probably a couple within walking distance of you live in any reasonably urban area.

I'll have a nice little payday if bama wins by 10,11,12,13, or 14.

That actually worried me so I told him I wanted to do cash upfront and have a neutral party hold it. He actually had the cash on him and handed it to me on the spot.
I know he bets big on the regular.

Pretty much no chance. They'll let you bet $1 if it's a major soccer match maybe $89 or something but not much on the good side.

If you were to be $1000 on the +320 (or whatever the other side is) they'd take it no problem (assuming the line is that far off). 100% serious - I'm not exaggerating here.

Off topic note in case anyone does try to deposit and bet it. If you deposit here with Skrill (Moneybookers) you are restricted from betting sports. They then require you to wager in casino or poker room before cashing out, or cash out and pay an admin fee for depositing and cashing out without turning over balance. This is listed in their rules but obviously most sports bettors are not going to read that rule and they just end up trapped by it.
