On 21 March 2011, SBR reported that Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating C) agreed to credit up to $1,000 to players that were stiffed by fallen book Parlaymakers (SBR rating F).
One such player has reported payment. The player was credited $1,000 with a 10X rollover requirement. The player took his time and methodically met his rollover, cashing out for $1,000+ this month. He documented his good fortune last night on SBR Forum, thanking Dimeline for giving him the opportunity to recover some of his funds. The player noted that he decided to leave some cash in the sportsbook to continue to play.
[quote]User "Igetp2s": I just wanted to give thanks to DimeLine. They bailed me out last year from part of the balance I lost that was stolen by Parlaymakers. I reached the rollover requirement a long time ago, but kept playing there beyond that and finally requested my first withdrawal last week (for more than the amount they initially placed in my account).
The withdrawal went extremely smoothly and I got my money very quickly without having any problems whatsoever, and didn't need to contact them at all for anything. I just wanted to thank Dimeline for their generosity which has helped reduce my Parlaymaker losses. I have kept some money in my account to continue playing there. Also thanks to SBR for arranging the bailout.[/quote]Dimeline tells SBR that they have hired a well-known industry linesman, and have entirely revamped their bonus model. Dimeline has been cooperative with SBR in cases of player feedback or claims. The sportsbook is powered by the BTG Global N.V. group which is licensed in Curacao.

UPDATE: BTG Global management has addressed this dispute. BTG has clarified that the player's statement of having limits from $22-$82.50 is false. The player was limited after being profiled as a non-recreational bettor, and given the following limits: $200 for NBA straight, $100 ML & total, as well as $75 NCAAB straight, $50 ML & total. BTG states the player is 21% of the way through his current rollover, and is able to continue playing or accept a prorated portion of his bonus winnings.
A WagerUp (SBR rating C) player writes in with a bonus dispute. The player deposited $200 and received a 100% (30x RO) cash bonus. The player claims his first wager was a winning two-team parlay. The player also claims that WagerUp lowered his limits to $30 for parlays and between $22-$82.50 for straight bets. The player still must meet almost $9,500 in rollover with these revised limits. The player asks that he either receive a refund of his deposit + all winnings derived from the bonus, or that WagerUp restore reasonable account limits. SBR is following up on this sportsbook complaint.

VIPSports.eu (SBR rating C) is still making deceptive sales pitches to former clients of the now defunct VIP Sports (SBR rating B-) family. VIPSports.eu is distributing emails suggesting that it is the same as the terminated VIP Sports operation. It is important for players to realize that the original VIP Sports is not back - former marketing personnel are attempting to capitalize on the brand's name by releasing targeted emails to former VIP Sports and Nine.com (SBR rating B-) customers. VipSports.eu is hosted on a different wagering platform, in a different country, with different financial backing and ownership. Players should approach the new VIPSports.eu as an unknown quantity and proceed with caution as with all start-up sportsbook companies.

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

A Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) player has written in with a sportsbook dispute. The player joined Dimeline in March of 2009 and received a 100% bonus with a 10X rollover. At the end of April 2009, the player claims the rollover was completed. He requested a withdrawal of £1200 on June 1st 2009. After four months passed by with no payments issued, Dimeline informed the player the check was lost in the mail and that he could begin receiving his funds in £200 increments. The player states he received only £200.
After following up with Dimeline Sportsbook, the sportsbook claimed to SBR that the player failed to meet his rollover and was allowed cashouts in error; additionally the player was allegedly double-credited a deposit which went unreported. SBR has asked for Dimeline to send all logs of the player's account adjustments and wagering activity to substantiate its position. SBR will update this report as more information is learned.
04.23.2010 (10:04 AM CST)
Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) has agreed to grant the player from the April 19th bonus complaint an additional 90 days to complete his rollover. On January 5th of 2009 the player deposited €2000 and received a 100% bonus with an 8X rollover. The following January the rollover had still not been completed, and Dimeline then removed the bonus from the player's balance; converting the funds to "free money", which is a commissions-based rewards program. Dimeline maintained that the bonus carried a 3 month rollover requirement. The player flatly denied having been informed of any such requirement. Dimeline was unable to provide conclusive proof that the term was listed on their website at the time. Dimeline currently publishes the 3 month rollover requirement on their bonus promotions page. After discussions with SBR, Dimeline has agreed to credit the player's bonus funds back into his account and to allow him an additional 90 days to complete the rollover.

No progress has been made in the Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) bonus complaint reported on SBR in March. On January 5th of 2009 a player deposited €2000 with Dimeline and slowly began to wager toward his rollover requirement. On January 1st of 2010 Dimeline removed €4505 in bonus funds from the account citing that the rollover was not met within 3 months of his deposit. The player disputes that the rollover was timed, and has provided an e-mail transcript where the Dimeline Sportsbook sales manager reiterated the bonus terms in early 2009 prior to his deposit. No such mention of a 3 month rule was intact. SBR is asking Dimeline Sportsbook to return all bonus funds to the player's account and to allow him to resume filling rollover. Any such bonus terms added by Dimeline Sportsbook after the player's deposit cannot be applied retroactively.
03.08.2010 (09:00 AM CST)
On 3/3 SBR reported an update to the 3/2 Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) complaint. Dimeline has since retracted their statements that the player received double his signup bonus in error. Dimeline attributes supplying erroneous information due to a mixup in accounts. Both sides agree that rollover has not been completed, however, the player disagrees that Dimeline had a posted rule on completing rollover within 3 months at the time of his deposit in January of 2009. The dispute will remain open until SBR can verify when the rule came into effect via page indexing, which may take up to a year.
03.03.2010 (04:12 PM CST)
Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) addresses bonus complaint SBR reported on March 2nd. On January 5th 2009 a player deposited €2000 in exchange for a €2000 cash bonus with an 8X rollover.

On January 1st of 2010 Dimeline removed €4505 in bonus money from the account, leaving the player with his original deposit. Dimeline discovered the crediting error when the player requested Moneybookers payment, additionally, the player was nine months past Dimeline's posted rule on rollover completion time. The rule is stated as follows:
[quote]Rollover is calculated on the lower of the risk or win. Rollover must be completed within 90 days. If a player fails to meet the rollover the real money bonus amount will be converted into free money and a rollover is no longer required.[/quote]
At the time of the adjustment, Dimeline states the player was down $1200. Dimeline has offered to refund the players €2000 deposit in full, noting that any proration of bonus play would leave the player with a significantly less return.

After slowly clearing €20,182 in rollover, the player logged into his account on January 1st of 2010 and discovered that €4505 was deducted from his gaming account. Dimeline allegedly informed the player the adjustment was made due to the rollover not being filled within one year.

Dimeline (SBR rating D) has addressed the bonus confiscation report from December 2nd. Dimeline offered a 100% cash bonus, 10X rollover in March prior to the MLB season beginning. The conditions of the bonus were that MLB moneylines were not counted toward this promotion. From March 22nd to April 30th a player wagered $52,678.90, $10,172 of these wagers counted toward his rollover. On April 30th Dimeline closed the players account citing steam and non-recreational play.
Dimeline stated that bonuses are intended for non-recreational players and stated that it would only pay a prorated amount of winnings. SBR's position was that this was not a fair tactic and that Dimeline had no right to the player's earned winnings. Dimeline then made an agreement with the player that should they re-enable his account, if he completes the remainder of his 10X rollover, they would pay all winnings with no proration. At that time the player's winnings were in excess of $13,000. Dimeline stated that the bonus would be paid only if the player ceased steam play and was re-profiled as a recreational bettor. The player completed his rollover and withdrew $9976 in winnings. SBR considers the bonus dispute closed.

He was then credited a $2000 bonus. The player placed $38,160 in action before Dimeline suspended his account on May 1st, cited steam play, confiscated the bonus, and invalidated a large % of his rollover as his play included MLB moneyline favorites greater than -150. The player's balance after the bonus confiscation was $13,000. Dimeline imposed a new rollover on the player, which he later met. The player cashed out $9976 over the past two months as Dimeline has meted out their ongoing slowpays. Dimeline has refused to credit the player the $2,000 bonus.

Neither withdrawal has been paid by Dimeline. SBR advises players to avoid Dimeline until multiple slowpay reports are resolved.
Dimeline: "Sir, at this time we do not have the Moneybookers funds to pay you. Your account was also labeled as a wiseguy account. This means you bet steam and are clearly a professional which is against our bonus terms. You will be paid but it will be another 30 days minimum. "

Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) has frozen a player's $2763.13 balance on suspicion of chip-dumping. The player requested three $2,000 withdrawals May 2nd, May 26th, and June 5th. Dimeline has yet to pay the player as slowpays have continued the past few months. On September 22nd a Dimeline manager offered the player a deal whereby if the player reversed one of the withdrawal requests he would guarantee payment of $4,000 by the end of the month. The player reluctantly accepted.
At this point the player decided to transfer $2,000 into his poker account. His sports account was limited to $50 a wager, so he hoped by putting some of his funds at risk Dimeline might deliver on their word hoping to retain him as a customer. SBR strongly advises against any player ever continuing to give action to a sportsbook that has yet to fulfill their payment obligations. The player proceeded to lose his $2,000 at the poker tables.
On September 30th the remainder of the player's balance ($2763.13), $2,000 of which was the recently reversed withdrawal that Dimeline had yet to pay since May, was frozen on suspicion of chipdumping. The player adamantly denies any such activity and invites SBR to review all hand histories. SBR will update this report as more information comes in.

Players also report customer service LiveChat being deactivated after repeatedly asking for payout updates through the service. DLS has confirmed in the past that they have turned off this method of communication for some users. Dimeline does not offer a customer service phone line.
Dimeline to player: “Yes I do think you have waited long enough. The only reason we didn't pay you is because you made incorrect statements at SBR in a negative way. At the time you had waited about 12 days for your payout. You went to SBR and said you have been waiting for 30 days when that is incorrect. I will get your payout sent next week."

Dimeline Sports (SBR Rating D+) threatens to confiscate player’s funds because he made negative comments about the book.
Dimeline Sportsbook threatened to confiscate a player's winnings of $4,450 because he posted negative remarks at SBRforum. The player complained that Dimeline was unable to pay him through Moneybookers, his method of deposit, and agreed to instead accept a check. On June 3rd the withdrawal request was accepted and scheduled to be processed. On June 4th Dimeline Sportsbook management discovered the player's statements, and demanded that he issue a retraction if he wanted his money. Dimeline then cancelled the withdrawal as the player refused to retract his statements. The player has been locked out of his account. SBR has verified the player's report with DimeLine. The player is hopeful the sportsbook will again process his payment tomorrow and put an end to the unprofessional behavior. | Player on DLS
Dimeline Sports Update: Bonus and winnings confiscations
Three players originally filed complaints that the sportsbook had confiscated bonuses and winnings. The sportsbook pointed to the fact that the players, though they wagered over $100,000 and had their limits lowered, were not recreational and were undeserving of their deposit bonuses. The end result was removal of bonus funds while being forced to complete the rollovers that accompanied the promotions. If the players refused to continue wagering they were told their winnings "from the bonuses" would be withheld. The confiscations went on to effect seven players who all elected to bet their money per management instead of giving up a portion of their winnings. DimeLine Sports now has a history of holding funds hostage and treating players unfairly.

offered exorbitant bonuses up to 100% with a limit of $2,000 that attracted players in a UK-focused betting forum. The four players to report to SBR wagered well over six figures. The sportsbook took notice of the play and lowered their betting limits. After the players continued to win, their accounts were frozen. The sportsbook claimed that using a line comparison service, similar to SBROdds.com, made the players nonrecreational
and ineligible for the bonus given. Dimeline's line manager labeled bets on their soft lines (lines that are late to update along with betting market leaders such as Bookmaker (SBR rating A+)
and Pinnacle (SBR rating A+)
) as "steam plays." Three of four of these players came from the same website but are unique accounts that have wagered from their individual locations. DLS has proposed paying the players half of their winnings rationalizing that they had double the funds to work with at the start of the account. All bonuses, despite amount rolled over, will be removed. Four Dimeline players had their accounts disabled and over $36,000 has been frozen since late April and early May. Dimeline was downgraded from C- to D+ and will be downgraded further if the book maintains its decision not to honor all winnings. Dimeline has been do

02.10.2009 (11:18 PM CST) DimeLine Sportsbook (SBR rating C-)
agrees to pay all players for canceled Denver Nuggets wager. The book incorrectly applied a rule meant for changes in game date or venue to a Spurs player injury. DLS will remain under review as SBR speaks with management to verify that the sportsbook policy is to never cancel a wager unless there is an obvious human error with a posted line. All players who question a canceled bet are encouraged to write to Help@SportsbookReview.com
Update 2/11/2009 6:18:18 PM
Dimeline Sportsbook confirms it will not cancel any wagers due to player injury on team sports or valid odds changes. Management also tells SBR it will clarify the vague rule that lead to the error by its staff. The rule should apply to the time and place of the event.

C-) cancels bet "because of injury"
3rd DimeLine Sportsbook canceled a wager on the Denver Nuggets -6
versus the San Antonio Spurs because of an injury report that caused
the line to change. The spread jumped across all sportsbooks to as high as -13. Dimeline customer service cited an error as reason for canceling
the bet. The player rightfully argues that his bet was canceled unfairly. The bet was not void because it was placed on an erroneous line but because he
had a good position on a play before information was known that would
change the odds across the betting market. SBR to contact DLS management. | Forum discussion

08.30.2008 (11:15 PM CST) Scammed sportsbook webmasters leave Futurebet; open new operation
In the fall of 2007 Futurebet-hosted sportsbooks began to realize
that player deposited funds, bookmaking profits, as well as money on hand for withdrawals were stolen by the provider. Futurebet, now calling itself iGaming Software
, claimed it was broke and could not pay its books or their players. Some of the Futurebet brands like USDbet (SBR rating F)
and Monkeybet (SBR rating F)
stiffed users and abandoned their sites. Others absorbed losses and attempted to stay in business, doing their own processing. SafariCasino (SBR rating D)
and Dimeline Sports (SBR rating D)
are two books that sustained hits by their business partner, continued to use Futurebet's software and hosting while using internal processing resources. The two books left Futurebet this past week, setting up new servers and their own software in Curacao. SBR will speak with ownership and reevaluate the new gaming group in early September.
The list of gaming sites to join the group include:

DimeLineSports (SBR rating D) expects its website to be off-line until tomorrow evening. The sportsbook plans to migrate from its Futurebet server to a new full service host in Curacao.

DimeLineSports (SBR rating D) currently off-line; informs players it is changing platforms
Some licensees of scam operation, Futurebet, have been planning to leave the hosting and service center for over six months. Futurebet had confiscated all sportsbook profits it collected through processing player deposits and refused to pay winners. This left their turnkey sportsbooks holding the debt to players while receiving almost no revenue for recent months. Some books have paid players with other funds, some have closed without paying, and some have relocated to new service providers. The labels were also out the investment money they had spent on marketing to new players. Dimeline Sports is one of the brands that planned to migrate to this new label. SBR expects to speak to the new operation's management tomorrow for updates on when player accounts will be accessible and what other labels may be involved.
05.12.2008 (07:57 PM CST) Sportsbooks to survive lethal Futurebet partnership?
DimeLine Sportsbook offers updates on customer service and payout complaints while lifeless sportsbook, USDbet, claims it is under new management and players will see it pay again.USDbet (SBR rating F)
has failed to respond to players and SportsBook Review since informing SBR it was victimized by Futurebet
in October of last year and did not have player funds. The sportsbook's management suggests there is reason for players to be optimistic.
USDbet: Dear Bill, USDBet is under new management and finally doing its own processing. Software will remain the same, however the problem was with processing not the software. We are paying out all pending withdrawals, so please redirect players who have contacted you with withdrawal problem to this mailing address: email@example.com.
Thank you. Best regards, James USDBet.com
DimeLine Sports (SBR rating D) tells SBR it will address complaints and that the book is close to upgrading its customer service department.
DLS: Apparently after reading your forum there are still some complaints regarding payouts from Dimeline. Our payouts are completely current and if here are clients who have not been paid it is a mistake. Please let the players know to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take care of this. Also I wanted to let you know that we are a few weeks away from providing our own customer support and completely being out from futurebet's horrible support team. We are also launching our poker network by June 1, 2008 and bringing back Neteller which will speed up the payout process for international clients. If you notice there are no payout complaints from USA clients.
SBR currently has three slow-pay and customer service complaints from DLS users. DLS has thus far survived a partnership with Futurebet, which stole bankrolls and profits from the majority of its licensees. BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-)
was the last book to join the no-pay network. BetOnUSA is believed to have taken over the Futurebet software source code and partnered with the network which did its last cash-grab on turnkey sportsbooks and their players.

Player: First they tell me to roll over one more time which I did - then they say that I haven't re-submitted the withdrawal request so I did that - then they tell me that the check is in the post... 5 weeks later it hasn't arrived yet and they just ignore all my emails.

Three players have reported new payout delays of nearly one month. A handful of DimeLine players did confirm receiving four-figure payouts in thfirst half of December but SBR has not received withdrawal confirmations since. Each of these three players have met a new one-time rollover requirement that the book applied after it was robbed by its business partner, Futurebet. The users have been emailing DLS, which is the only way to communicate with accounting, but have not received responses.
Player: I have requested a $2000 withdrawal (out of $5600 in my account with them) on 4 September 2007 - that is over 4 months ago.Despite many emails requesting the payout over and over again they did not respond to my emails.In December after complaining about them on SBR they said that they require 1 more roll over before I can get my money (although I have already done my full rollover with them prior to that) - so I decided that I have got nothing to lose and I have done the additional rollover as they requested. I finished that 1 extra rollover late December and I requested again by email the $2000 which I asked for in September - but I simply do not get any reply to my emails... Bill - do you think you can help here at all?

The sportsbook tells SBR it is current with payout requests with the exception of players who have not met a one time roll-over requirement.

A DLS player confirmed receiving $1500 via check today. The sportsbook has been unable to pay players since September and blamed stiff operation, Futurebet. The Canadian company is not processing withdrawals on behalf of its sportsbooks with the exception of BetOnUSA (SBR rating D-) and sister book, Oddsmaker (SBR rating D-). Dimeline tells SBR that it had to pay players through private processing after being denied reserves and earned revenue from Futurebet wagering services.
10.31.2007 (11:08 PM CST)
Dimeline is claiming withdrawals will resume but only after a 1x rollover (play-through of balance one time) requirement is completed. The situation illustrates the added liability of books that are working with unsavory turnkey and sportsbook host operations. DimeLineSports was one of the many Futurebet books that lobbied for a higher rating stating that they were independent, in full control and took full responsibility of their book. Although this action is unfair, players who are newly aware of the Futurebet situation will likely be happy to bet their balance in an effort to escape a Futurebet licensee.
DLS email to Player:
Sir- We have been dealing with a financial issue for the last two months. A company called futurebet was hired to handle all player funds for the last two years. In the last two months they have decided to stiff our players. We are now taking the initiative to pay all players out of pocket. We want you to know that you will be paid by us out of pocket but we are requiring you to rollover your cashout amount ($1,300) at least 1x before a cashout can be made.
We are bailing out Futurebet because we want our players to be paid. The good news is we are now offering Western Union and Money Gram payouts to expedite your withdraw time once the 1x rollover has been met. Now that we are processing payouts independently we will have no issues with withdrawal delays and lack us customer service regarding withdrawals.

DL: We are officially out of the Futurebet umbrella and only use there software now. All payout issues will be handled within the next 2 weeks. All players can now expect to be paid in our time frames quoted on the site. All funds are controlled independently now and Futurebet no longer handles are payouts.
This is the second time Dimeline has went to private processing. Players requesting a payout are asked to update SBR. Despite the statement above, Dimeline still relies on the Futurebet servers, wagering and customer support.

Dimeline Sportsbook (SBR rating D) user complains of slow-pay and altered sign-up incentive.
Player: First I deposited a couple hundred on their "100% bonus" plan, which a week later (and well into my rollover) they downgraded to a "25% bonus". Didn’t even bother arguing it as the lines were beatable. Had an account balance of around $700, requested a $500 withdrawal last Thursday, and they said it would take 12-24 hours to be processed. That $500 does not show up in my account anywhere as pending and there is no record whatsoever that the money was even there. It is in "accounting limbo" right now.

is the latest FutureBet sportsbook to be inserted in the SBR rating guide. DLS has received an initial rating of D. The new book has chosen to use its own payment processor in an effort to avoid being financially dependant on slow-paying Futurebet.
