A SportsbettingOnline (SBR rating C-) player has had $8,200 in limbo for going on three months. The player opened their account with a $500 deposit in the summer of 2014 and increased the total balance to approximately $8,700. A successful $500 payout was made via bitcoins, which was the maximum at the time per house rules. The following payout request was allegedly instantly declined by SportsbettingOnline.

No update was provided, and the player remains in the dark on why the remaining balance is in limbo.

Dashbet Sportsbook promo dispute; player's limits are slashed

09.15.2014

A Dashbet Sportsbook (unrated) player has filed a bonus complaint. The player states that he opened his account with the betting site one week ag. He deposited £500 and received a 50% sportsbook bonus. He tells SBR that he immediately sent his ID and was verified within one hour of depositing funds. The approach the user took to immediately clear KYC is advisable, and was a suggestion made in this article released by SBR on how to best comply with sportsbooks KYC processes. The bonus was not a back-end bonus; it was credited immediately to him. Following the entry of a handful of bets, the player has stated that Dashbet slashed his limits and lowered him to £10 maximum. In total, he would be asked to rollover his total funds to achieve £7,500 in play-through. The player contests being limited; though betting sites are free to adjust player's limits as determined necessary, however the industry standard in such cases is for the betting site to simply prorate the player's bonus and pay all winnings. Sportsbook Review is following up on the complaint, and asks Dashbet players with feedback to write to mail@sportsbookreview.com.
