Online sportsbook bonuses to avoid05.19.2011 SBR suggests that players avoid unproven sportsbooks that promise bonuses which sound too good to be true. Players should consider whether or not a promotion figures to be profitable for the house before parting with their funds. The sportsbook BetODog.com (unrated) is sending emails advertising a 100% signup bonus for first time deposits. BetODog has the look of a price-per-head shop yet it takes signups as well as gives bettors a phone number to call for wagering and customer service. BetODog is hosted on the same server as RockStarBets.com, which lists the same telephone number. A review into the two domains suggests that BetODog is being marketed ahead of the second brand. On March 18th, Sportsbook Review reported that Betbanks sportsbook was promoting a 25% signup bonus with no rollover. SBR cautioned players to avoid outfits that offer such irregular bonuses.
