DailyDime downgraded from D- to F
11.22.2010 (01:16 PM CST)
DailyDime has been downgraded to F on the SBR Sportsbook Blacklist. On 11/20, SBR reported that DailyDime's manager told a player that the sportsbook was in financial trouble. Since that report was published, a player who requested an $1170.34 check on 10/30 has come forward telling SBR he has received no payment updates.
BTG Gaming provides DailyDime with betting software, web hosting, and credit card processing. The hosting company, which also powers Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) tells SBR that they have removed DailyDime's manager's website access due to unpaid hosting fees. DailyDime's manager, who refers to himself as "Johny Anthony", has not returned SBR's calls or e-mails.
How DailyDime players can request their funds
BTG Gaming tells SBR that any DailyDime player who deposited with their credit card processor will receive the amount of their deposits back, including the player who reported the $1170.34 slow-pay. BTG went on to say that if DailyDime would agree to sell its domain name, BTG would assume full responsibility of all players balances. To date, DailyDime has not made contact with its players, host, or SBR.
SBR advises DailyDime players not to send any funds by Western Union to "John Anthony", as he has lost access to the DailyDime website and does not have the power to add funds into a player's account. SBR has been assured by BTG Gaming that his website access will not be turned back on until the $6,500 in pending player withdrawals is paid. | DailyDime statement

The manager of DailyDime (SBR rating D-) has acknowledged the sportsbook's poor financial standing. The message was addressed to a player that wrote to SBR for dispute assistance. On October 10th, a player attempted to deposit $1,000 to DailyDime by credit card. His deposit was rejected, but due to the player's history with DailyDime he was preauthorized for the amount with the understanding that DailyDime would contact its processing company to rerun the deposit.
The player won a $25,000 NFL parlay later that Sunday, and had increased his balance to $65,000 in the next few days. However, DailyDime learned that the player's deposit was declined not by their processing company, but instead by the player's bank. The player confirms this, stating that he called his bank and was told that he could then reattempt the transaction with the vendor. After DailyDime learned that the deposit was rejected due to the player's bank, his balance was voided on the grounds of 'freerolling' the sportsbook.
In a lengthy e-mail to the player, the manager of DailyDime pinned the decision not to pay the player on his hosting provider, BTG Gaming. He also elaborated on financial challenges faced:
[QUOTE]Right now, basically, DailyDime is on life support and I'm going down with the (expletive). We're not a large book by any stretch of the term and I myself am not a rich man like a lot of other sportsbook owners. The host wants to set up a three way call with myself, him and you and basically have me tell you that the winnings are no good since the deposit can't go through the processors (again, our processors are complete (expletive) right now so technically that's accurate). This industry is a tough industry to crack and like I said, DD is on life support, but I'm not willing to let go of it yet, nor am I comfortable just telling you your winnings are no good with us, considering the business you gave us in 2009.[/quote]
SBR spoke to BTG Gaming and learned that DailyDime is provided with hosting, software, and one credit card processor. BTG Gaming does not stand for nor hold the funds of DailyDime players. The owner of BTG Gaming states that he would be willing to acquire the domain and assume responsibility of DailyDime players balances, but tells SBR that DailyDime's manager is currently late in paying for hosting fees and has six pending player withdrawals that have not been filled for a total of $6,500. BTG stated that they have been unable to reach DailyDime's manager and have since disabled his backend tools to access the software, and may take the site off-line if its hosting bill is not paid in the next month. | DailyDime forum discussion

DailyDime (SBR rating D-) moves from no-pay Futurebet Group to the BTG Gaming Group. DailyDime will be reevaluated once BTG flagship sportsbook, Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D+), addresses all payout delays and customer service complaints. Despite BTG issues, players with any Futurebet turnkey site, that is able to relocate to a new sportsbook host, have new hope of being paid. Futurebet (now rebranded as IGS) is one of the largest scams involving online betting.

DailyDime enters the SBR rating guide at D-
DailyDime.com is hosted and serviced, with the same website IP address and company license as AceCity (SBR rating D) and Oddsmaker (SBR rating D), by Futurebet. The Futurebet flagship sportsbook prior to partnering with Oddsmaker and BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-) was SportsbookUSA (SBR rating F). SportsbookUSA has stole hundreds of thousands, if not over a million, from its players. SBR still gets at least one email a week from new SportsbookUSA players who are asking for help collecting winnings. Players should avoid all affiliated sportsbook brands.
