Carib Sports (SBR rating B) is no longer taking new player registrations from the US. Existing players are unaffected.
Carib tells SBR: Since 9am EST today our website came under a DOS Attack. Our Technical Team is diligently working on restoring full access to our site. We anticipate your understanding and sincerely apologize for any inconveniences being caused by this attack on our services.
A denial of Service attack is caused by excessive requests to a website's server which in turn leaves little or no resources for legitimate user traffic. The sportsbook's information and databases are not "hacked" or compromised. In the event of website downtime bettors can find a list of all LiveChat links here as well as all sportsbook phone numbers here. This is the second time is the last six months that Carib Sports has been down due to a DoS attack.
Update 8.18.09: Carib tells SBR: "We are pleased to report that Carib has recovered from the DOS attack experienced yesterday. Full access to the website has been restored. We appreciate the understanding and patience our members have extended to us while our services were interrupted."
Carib Sports (SBR rating B) under Denial of Service attack
Carib Management: Sadly, our customers have been unable to use the website since yesterday at 5:00pm EST. We are under a DOS Attack and our technicians are working diligently to rectify this problem and restore our services. To our customers, we apologize sincerely for the inconveniences they are experiencing.
Carib tells SBR that players can call for account and balance information and they will be able to take hand tickets beginning at 1:00pm EST if the site is not fully functioning at that time. Carib
's phone number is 1-800-611-7000; email is HelpDesk@CaribSports.com

Carib management states the matter has been addressed and players can use the website. Players who experience any errors with the book's banking page today are asked to call the sportsbook.
The sportsbook's management assures SBR that this was an isolated incident and that players will not be punished for buying back the otherside of a pending wager in the future.
CaribSports (SBR rating B) confiscates player's $150; cites "line manipulation."
Carib allowed the sharp player to wager with a $250 limit but told him that if he bet on both sides of the same game, the second wager would immediately be graded as a loss.
Player: Fast forward til yesterday March 11, I bet the Lakers 2h total over 107 +105 for my max ($150) and another time at over 107 -105 for 157.50. Minutes later I bet under 107 +105 for $150 deciding to shorten my position. The third and last bet of under 107 was graded a loss with the game still going. I have used a wide array of bookies but noone has been giving me troubles with this. Had they cancelled all wagers right away I wouldn't have said anything but in my opinion grading pending bets as losses before the outcome is known is theft .
SBR has asked Carib Sportsbook to refund the player for the wager he did not lose and to decline service to those who do not abide by rules or have desired wagering patterns. Carib will remain under review while this case is pending.
Carib (SBR rating B) and WagerWeb (SBR rating B-) again accepting new US-based players.

Carib Sports (SBR rating B-) reviews phone wager complaint (posted 4/25/05) and agrees to suggested compromise. Player considers issue resolved.
Player has phone wager dispute with Carib Sports (SBR rating B-). Carib has refused to allow the player to listen to the wager recording since he complained two days ago. The player believes the clerk may have mistakenly recorded a NBA playoff wager on the Sonics instead of the Celtics. Management tells SBR that they plan to have a meeting about this issue tomorrow. SBR expects the player to have the ability to hear his recorded phone wager as stated in Carib’s rules. SBR rarely receives negative feedback from Carib players.
Players can now wager $5,000 on a single hand. Pinnacle plans to add Baccarat, Craps and European Roulette to the already popular casino suite. New video poker and slots were also recently added. WizzardOfOdds.com has rated Pinnacle’s Caribbean Stud to be one of the fairest, if not the fairest on the internet, with odds that rival land based casinos.
This is one sportsbook that has focused on taking care of the player while passing on expensive marketing campaigns including player bonuses. WSEX management was guarded on their expansion plans but word on the street is WSEX is back and we would expect to see more of them in a variety of media in 2005.
