BetAfterBet (SBR rating D) has paid a player £1,732. The player originally requested payment August 10th. BetAfterBet has addressed the ongoing slow-pays accrued in recent months and provided unusual reasoning for the delays:
[quote]We have been reviewing, over the last three months, the management of payouts to customers. The review was requested by our Finance Team as there were clear indications of problems with the manner in which payouts where being handled.
We have had to hold back on payments, as of course you are aware, until such time that the issue was properly investigated and the problem clearly identified. There was a very clear mishandling of the bonus system with bonus money being converted to ‘real’ money well before players were eligible for this. The effect of this on cash flow need not be explained.[/quote]

BetAfterBet (SBR rating D) slowpay reports continue to flood the SBR mailbox. As of today BetAfterBet owes €23,924.60 to 24 players. BetAfterBet has blamed the delays on having to manually process payments requested via their software, and on the number of payments which have been requested.
BetAfterbet: [quote]Please do rest assured that your money is safe and the delay of the payout has not in any way been linked to financial difficuties of the company. It is indeed due to the large number of withdrawals which are being processed manually. Let us explain in more detail what exactly happened, so that you may gain a better perspective of the situation. All withdrawals arecurrently processed manually, due to a technical and communication issue
between our system and the third party processing systems. Further to that, most withdrawals currently are first time withdrawals, therefore, the process of the payouts includes not only an authorisation of the payout amount but also documentation verification and review of each account and the activity on it. This is due to stricter security procedures implemented for first time withdrawals. [/quote]
