Coral Sportsbook (SBR rating A-) has paid the player from SBR's 6/28 bonus complaint report in full. The player contacted SBR stating that he deposited £25 for a 100% bonus promo and through play increased his balance to £510. However, Coral voided his wagers and canceled the bonus stating that it did not allow players from Belarus to accept promotions. After discussion with SBR, Coral decided to pay the player in full.

Coral (SBR rating A-) has voided a player's bonus and winning wager. In early June, a player from Belarus deposited £25 and received a 100% bonus. He won £300 on his first wager, and an additional £210 in subsequent wagers bringing his account balance to £510. Coral then voided all wagers and canceled the bonus. Coral's promotion page limited the bonus to UK residents only, however the software applied the bonus to the player. Coral has subsequently argued to SBR that it has a right to limit its promotions however it wishes. Canceling all wagers from players that did not spot the country restriction terms, rather than deducting the bonus amount and honoring all winnings allows a potential free-roll of the player. SBR is discussing the bonus complaint with Coral further.

BetChance users complain of slow-pays, including Moneybookers withdrawals, taking well beyond the stated five days and delayed ACH payments; voided winning wagers, including bets that were placed two days before the event on lines not considered to be erroneous; and taking two to three days to grade some wagers. Most players tell SBR they were attracted to the Malta-based bookmaker by their opinionated betting odds
. Players should consider heavily opinionated lines from low-volume or new bookmakers a reason to be cautious and a sign that the sportsbook may be gambling.One of two player reports on voided winning bet: After the Result of a Tallinn win they said they were consulting management to make a decision on what to do with the Bets. They have since Voided the Bets, but have poor reasons. They said incorrect Odds. however odds were High with Bluesq and Coral, both of which have Paid out and honoured the bets. Betchance actually Cut their Odds on the 17th, where I placed further bets. They have only acted because the Bets I placed have won and wont pay me Winnings. Betchance had two days from me placing my Bets til the Event happened, and did not Act before the Game!
One of four bettors to report BetChance slow-pay: Betchance now informed me last Friday that the bank (their bank) had blocked the payment, and asked whether I would agree to a different payment plan.This I did, but it appears Betchance have already broken their latest promise again. They had confirmed they would pay me £1,400 by Moneybookers today (this is the payment I requested on July 13), but it is now end of business and I have received nothing.They have also promised to send me £4,000 (instead of £8,000) by bank transfer today, and that I can withdraw the remainder of my money by Moneybookers in instalments of £1,000 per day.I was asked to agree to this payment plan since I was told they have a lot of withdrawal requests and they would like to spread out the money amongst their customers. I believe my agreement to their request was reasonable, but I still remain highly sceptical about the sincerety of Betchance until I have received my money from Betchance.
