In today's Sportsbook Review iGaming News update host Natalie covers recent topics to have been published on the SBR newswire. One of the items discussed in the video broadcast includes a complaint raised against BetUS Sportsbook (SBR rating D+). A player claimed that his account was closed following the accumulation of $7,975 in winnings. BetUS allegedly informed the player that he was not considered a recreational sports bettor. His winnings have yet to be released. He does not contest that his account was closed; he simply wishes to be paid his balance and move on. An online sportsbook is within their right to refuse service to any account - think of it like walking into an uppity restaurant shirtless, you will likely be shown the door. While an extreme example, online sportsbooks are in the business of making money, so players determined to be too sophisticated to service may be denied the right to an account. However, legitimately earned winnings must be honored absent evidence of fraud. The old industry standard of "you book the bet, you pay the bet" applies. BetUS Sportsbook have yet to comment on the situation.
A BetAtHome Sportsbook (SBR rating C-) user has submitted an SBR complaint. The player opened his account with BetAtHome on August 24. He deposited €200 via Skrill and received a 50% signup bonus which added to his balance by €100. He experienced success following the deposit, increassing his balance to €1398. On August 28, he requested a withdrawal of €300. As part of meeting the Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements, he was asked to send a copy of his passport. He obliged the request within a day. BetAtHome meanwhile has suspended his account and allegedly declined to provide additional information to the client concerning his account status or ability to be paid his balance, which he claims to have earned fairly and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the sportsbook. Sportsbook Review is following up on the complaint.
Other columns include the maximum bonus redeemable in a given bonus, restricted countries, and rollover required.

Online sportsbooks & Bitcoin
There is plenty of technical mumbo-jumbo to get lost in when researching bitcoin, but one area of relevance to Sportsbook Review readers is the ease which bitcoin can be traded and used to deposit to betting sites. In an online sportsbook industry where processing costs are more exorbitant by the day, a low-cost option that allows clients to deposit without a trip to the local convenience store is welcomed with open arms. Still, there remain technical hurdles to properly implement bitcoin into online cashiers, as well as the fact that your average Joe may not even understand what a bitcoin is yet, and these areas still must be overcome for bitcoin to truly become commonplace in the online sportsbook industry. 5Dimes Sportsbook is the first major company to officially support bitcoin following the conclusion of a closed beta test between staff and players.
Creation of Bitcoin Sportsbooks review guide
Sportsbook Review has established a bitcoin sportsbooks guide which lists all known betting sites to offer bitcoin. The list is being updated daily as new websites surface, and only sportsbooks which have proven to be legitimate will carry an SBR Rating. SBR welcomes feedback from players on the categories which are important to them when choosing a bitcoin sportsbook. The first version of the bitcoin sportsbooks guide includes categories such as date established, server location, minimum and maximum payouts, as well as screenshots of each platform. The bitcoin sportsbook guide also features a real-time updating widget which shows the current BTC price in USD. Sportsbook Review news host Natalie Rydstrom introduces the bitcoin guide in a video released this morning, which can be found in this report's inner page.
A BetUS Sportsbook (SBR rating D+) player has filed a complaint. The player has stated he made two $1,000 deposits last week through bank card. His balance was increased to $7,975.44. He tells SBR that he requested his first payout from BetUS Sportsbook today, the morning of August 26, and was told that his account was being closed on the grounds that he is not a recreational sports bettor. The player has no problem with his account being closed but rightfully demands his winnings. Sportsbook Review has followed up with the betting site to inquire on when the player will be paid his winnings.
Online sportsbook 5Dimes (SBR rating A+) has added another 30 wagering markets on the 2014 Emmy Awards. The wagering options consist of a complete selection of 2-way markets for each bet vs. the field. Sportsbook Review has updated the Emmys Prop Betting directory with these wagering markets from top betting sites.
The exclusive NFL Beat The Prick betting contest is up to 850 members since opening three weeks ago. The tenth edition of the contest gives away $20,000 in prizes to the top 25, as well as a pot of 100,000 points per week to all participants who outperform pro handicapper "The Prick". The contest is based on making five weekly NFL or NCAAF picks from the available pointspread and total wagers through the first 15 weeks of the NFL season. In a week where "The Prick" goes 5-0-0, nobody wins. Join the 10th annual Free NFL Football contest and pad your bankroll for the upcoming football season.
The online sportsbook news show also touches on more positive news, including popular online sportsbook Heritage and their announcement launching new player programs including debuting -105 style sides and totals. The change comes four years after Heritage lowered their reduced juice pricing from -110 to -108. For more information check the Heritage sportsbook review by SBR.
Three new online sportsbooks have been added to the Emmy Awards Categories prop betting list. The entirety of the selection on offer from 5Dimes Sportsbook, Bookmaker, and Youwager are available on the page. The best line is rated where an identical market is offered; for example, the page lists 2-way, 3-way, and multi-way markets and where applicable a label indicating the best available line. For bettors backing the favorite of a given market, such as Matthew McConaughey to win for outstanding lead actor in a Drama Series for his work in HBO's critically acclaimed "True Detective", the best available line has McConaughey as a 1 to 3 favorite or -300. This means a $300 wager returns $100 in profit. The best side to bet the underdogs in the market are listed on-page in accordance with the market type.
