BetDos was identified as a sportsbook using turnkey service provider MXA Systems in March. Shortly after discussing their rating with Sportsbook Review and learning more about Max, the owner of MXA and the scams he has been involved in, BetDOS reported moving to BLR software and their own server and database. Max was the host, and in some cases owner, of scam books such as DunHill Casino (SBR rating F), Atlantisbets (SBR rating F), BetBones (SBR rating F) and PremiumBettor (SBR rating F).
BetDOS enters SBR rating guide at D-
BetDos is serviced by "Max," who formerly hosted and serviced scam sportsbooks AtlantisBets and DunHillCasino, and owned and operated BetBones and Premiumbettor. Max now uses his resources to service new sportsbooks--one being BetFirstClass (SBR rating D). BetFirstClass ownership was unaware of BetDos but the sportsbooks share the same IP address and database server. A username from one of the sportsbooks will also work on the other book's website. BetDos has not yet answered SBR's inquiries. As with all new turnkey sportsbooks, BetDos should be avoided.

27.02.2008 AtlantisBets (SBR rating F) scam lands new victim
The sportsbook's scam handicappers con another player into deposting money to AtlantisBets
. The book works with the cappers
to sell the player on making a deposit into the no-pay book with promises of matching deposits by the capper and winning picks. Victims of AtlantisBets are asked to contact SBR with bank wire information.
Player: I bank wired $5,000, funds were supposed to be matched by capper. Were not. Asked to send another $10,000, and I wired two $5,000 transactions for a total of $15,000. Then was promised "promotional money" by a guy named "Jeremy", who says he works with casinos in Las Vegas and they give him promotional money. Asked to send another $15,000 in order to "activate" account. Called Atlantis bets to withdraw my $30,000 and guy there named "Mike" (Costa Rica), says "Jeremy" has attached the account as a "promotional" account and that he will not release any funds. Now they want more money in order to release funds.

AtlantisBets - SBR initiates rating coverage at F
Scam Alert: No-pay book AtlantisBets (SBR rating F) involved in scam to defraud players. Pay-service “Handicappers” offers player selections in exchange for a percentage of winnings. Players are promised that if the plays lose, the lost money will be reimbursed. After the player loses money with his bookie, the player is asked to deposit money at AtlantisBets where it will be matched with the handicappers’ “promotional money." AtlantisBets and the touts threatened the player after SBR began the investigation. His balance at AtlantisBets was zeroed out, and withdrawals refused. The sportsbook initially told SBR the funds were removed from the account for a payout. It is common for scam books and touts to work together to bring money in, especially via the anonymous transfer method, Western Union.
