Wagerweb quoting up to three months for withdrawals above $800

23 hours ago

Two WagerWeb Sportsbook (SBR rating C+) users have written to SBR after being told it could take as much as 60 business days to receive checks, the only viable payment method for withdrawals above $800. One player has claimed that he was told by a member of WagerWeb customer service that the wait time is "industry standard", suggesting other online sportsbooks are also experiencing delays. The second player however claimed to have waited a total of 106 days without receiving payment. No other sportsbook's users have written to complain about general delays through this method. Larger Wagerweb balance holders seem to be electing to wait instead of pursuing multiple individual payments for small amounts at higher fees. SBR has asked if Wagerweb might be willing to consider waiving the fees on more expensive smaller payouts to help expedite payouts for users with larger balances, and if players can expect to receive faster redemptions in the near future.
